  1. Toby and Shelley, i enjoyed listening to your 7 parts series. You did a great job and made an otherwise miserable commute a rewarding experience. Is it possible “My War For Me” is not so much about the location of the treasure chest but is really just about Mr. Fenn and the treasure chest. Forgive a sinner and smile at a homely girl. The 22 lbs. of flesh Mr. Fenn gave to the war he has placed in the chest as an offering for forgiveness and the Indulgence by now will appear quite homely after 8 years of harsh conditions but upon opening she will make you smile. The rest of “My War For Me” supports this concept of reconciliation and legacy. Who knows, maybe some or all of his medals could be in the chest as well. Wondering if anyone has seen his medals since he hide the chest. Just my thoughts

    • Pretty wise thinking, Jeff. I don’t know about the medals. I’m not sure which way I’d bet on whether he’s shown them off or not. Interesting question to ponder.
