  1. Hello Toby & Shelley,
    I liked your story visualizing Fenn’s experience of hiding the treasure, but Toby, I’ve been MESMERIZED by your vivid first-hand accounts of your experiences in Viet Nam! I truly think you should collect all of these personal accounts (including the video showing all of the emotion) that have become such a stirring part of your discussion of the “My War For Me” chapter in TTOTC and use them as the basis for something bigger. I think it could serve as a much-needed reality check for a lot of people. For me, the only thing that equaled the impact of these stories, as far as getting the tiniest tiny inkling of what it’s like to experience the terror of combat, was the opening scene of “Saving Private Ryan”. Thank you for your service, then and now!

    I just HAD to tell you how those stories affected me, but I actually have a question relating to the hiding of the treasure as well… I think that I read or heard somewhere that Fenn just used an ordinary sedan when he hid the treasure. Am I correct? Do you actually believe it would have been be necessary for him to ford a river, is there another way he could have gotten to the hiding spot, or could a 2WD vehicle ford the river in question during the summer? Keep up the excellent work!

    • Allen…thank you very much for your nice words regarding my stories and storytelling skills. Truly appreciated. To your other question, and something to think about. Fenn did response once that he had used a sedan. If you’ll look up the definition of sedan, you’ll find that it’s a body type, not a vehicle type. Turns out a Jeep Cherokee is a sedan, a 4×4 sedan. And yes, I do believe it would have been necessary to ford a river in order for him to get to his launch point. He would have fished there, and he would have required a 4×4 vehicle to get there. Any fisherman in New Mexico that wants to get to the prime fishing spots in the Northern part of the State would own a 4×4 vehicle. Which is, by the way, the reason Fenn used the word “sedan” to describe the vehicle he was in.

      • I guess that’s just Fenn not making it easy for the casual searcher – using a common word in an unconventional, though technically correct way… And keep those powerful stories coming.
