Breakfast with the Schoppmans!

Pam Schoppman (Ramblin’ Pam on YouTube and a frequently invited member of our Wednesday night panels) and her husband, Bob, were traveling through Albuquerque on their way home after a week and half of New Mexico, including the Jamie Jourdan Raffle event, and a visit with Fenn at his home.

We met for breakfast at the Range Cafe located along side the Rio Grande exit of I40 Westbound. We spent more than two hours over a Tuscan Omlet, Huevos Rancheros and the world famous Range Blue Corn Pancakes discussing our YouTube Channels, the community activities surrounding the Jamie Jourdan raffle, and of course, our favorite Fenn-treasure search areas. As we were leaving, Pam informed me that it was her 62nd birthday, and was looking forward to receiving the first of her Social Security Benefits.

These are two of the nicest people in the search, and if you haven’t already subscribed to her YouTube channel, I strongly recommend you do so today. She produces engaging, informative, and well produced content and has made it an objective to continuously improve her product.

Here’s the link to her channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0L99hybglbHEMV-nYd5WzA

And, if you comment on one of her YouTube videos, remember to wish her a Happy Birthday.

“The Treacherous Treasure Hunt of Forrest Fenn” <=== Not my clickbait!

Buzzfeed, the online media property that targets millennials, released a YouTube video under there “Unsolved Network” Brand entitled “The Treacherous Treasure Hunt of Forrest Fenn,” which, in my opinion, is not a very well composed title – but, who am I to argue? They have 1.3 million subscribers – and as of this writing the video has generated nearly a half-million views in a single day! I imagine we can expect an equal number of new searchers and new skeptics into the community.

Plus, we’ll likely see a whole new rash of “I’ve studied this for a whole day, and I know exactly where the treasure is! I need a partner to go get it!” posts in the Fenn forums.

Fun to watch, if a little off in some of the hints/clues, but a credible example of what a first BOTG will look/feel like – minus the Indiana Jones affectation.

Good for the search, or not? Comment below.

Here’s the video:

Our Live Streaming Kit for the September 6th Event

The photo above represents the kit we’ll use at 2pm MDT on Tuesday, September 6th, 2018 from the Collected Works Bookstore in Santa Fe to live stream the Jamie Jourdan raffle drawing. I am always in amazement on how the technology footprint is made progressively smaller each time I produce one of these events.

Forrest has words for AGK! Well…kinda.


As we mentioned on today’s Forrest Fenn Book Club live stream, Fenn Treasure Hunter Cindy Guess, one of our subscribers and regular viewers, took it upon herself to write Fenn and ask him a question regarding Chapter 21 in his first memoir, “The Thrill of the Chase,” entitled “Father on the Banco.” Forrest responded!

Here is the email conversation between the two, copied and pasted in it’s entirety, and without editing.

Hi Forrest,

Do you have any words I can share with the search community this afternoon on AGK TTOTC book club?  They are on the chapter titled “Father on the Banco”.

Your Friend,

Cindy Guess
 A Hoosier Sister

My father was strict in his personal habits and wanted the events in his immediate future to be predictable. I am just the opposite so that probably made me a culture shock to him. I never had the patients to do what he did so well and he could not have existed even one day in the daily atmosphere that I always chose accidentally. f

Thank you, Cindy. Thank you, Forrest

One of our subscribers sent us wine!

Jon Tack, an agypsyskiss.tv subscriber from Iowa, very generously sent us these two bottles of wine from the Ackerman Winery in Marengo, Iowa. “Iowa Dandelion Blossom” is on the left and “Mead,” made from 100% Iowan honey, is on the right. The labels are eminently collectible.

Thank you, Jon! We’ll enjoy them both on upcoming book club live streams, and give our opinions on them to our viewers.

On Fenn’s Response to the Question From “Forrest Burke” Regarding Punctuation in the Poem

I read, with some interest, Fenn’s response to the question posed by the character who signed his name “Forrest Burke,” on Jenny Kile’s Mysterious Writings blog on August 28, 2018, represented her in text:

Mr. Fenn,

There has been a lot of talk about the punctuation in your poem and how it might help someone who is searching for your treasure. That’s a bunch of hooee, isn’t it!?

Forrest Burke

Dear Mr. Burke,

Sometimes punctuation can be confusing and that’s why I’m very careful when I use it. To illustrate: I just received an email from a man who has stage 4 liver cancer. He said he knows where the treasure is and tomorrow he is going to Colorado to get it. “Will you please wish me good luck,”?, he said. I replied, “No, you seem so positive and I don’t want to give you an advantage over other searchers, so I won’t say, good luck to you. f

And, to be safe, here in image:

I was not nearly as surprise by either the question or Fenn’s response as I was by the number of composition and punctuation errors I find in what Fenn wrote.

Here how I would have written it:

Dear Mr. Burke,

Punctuation can sometimes be confusing. That’s why I’m very careful when I use it. For example, I just received an email from a man who claims he has stage 4 liver cancer. He wrote that he knows where I hid the treasure, and he’s leaving tomorrow to recover it. “Will you please wish me good luck?” he wrote. I replied, “No, you seem so positive, and I don’t want to give you an advantage over other searchers, so I won’t write, ‘Good luck to you.'” f

In contradiction to Fenn writing that he’s very careful when he uses punctuation, in his paragraph above he, effectively, throws punctuation out the proverbial window.

Which, to me, is more curious than his response.

Intentional or not? That is the fist question. “Why?” is the second.
