Virgil Caine is my name?Time seems to come? up quite often with Fenn

Dale Richards?AKG: I went to Lander too.? I also visited Atlantic City and Southpass while there. Good Stuff! Atlantic City has a great pub.

Laurie James?Perhaps the? book was banned in Texas

Dale Richards?IMO: Robert Redford as an actor is less? important than his book.

Mary Green?interesting Fenn is getting books in 2010 at? book store

Virgil Caine is my name?Salingers style is colloquial and it seems? Fenn copied his style and stole parts of CITR

Cmonkeyification?@ Virgil. Agree. e.g. “What do you? think?”

Laurie James?not a boomer 1930?

Virgil Caine is my name?Cmonkeyfication ???

Man In The Barn?Greatest? Generation

Man In The Barn???

Journeyman?Late but? here.

Paul McGinty?AGK: Don’t have the book, just listening with? interest

Dale Richards?Fenn? likes mysteries of the past.

Seannm Seannm?AGK: what came first? imagination or knowledge.

Heather Guillen?Hi Toby &? Shelley!

Susan Heckenliable?He does say during an interview because he was a writer he looked up words like “few”?

Virgil Caine is my name?What would that particular issue have? been?

JanKirb?FYI he? uses “asterisk” twice in the book

steve remple?AGK Why does he purposely misspell? Border’s?

Laurie James?AGK. Hole in a? Wall = Hiding Spot?

JanKirb?p 76 asterisk #2?

Dale Richards?AKG: Why have? you not given The Outlaw Trail more attention in your search?

Journeyman?AGK * is a wild card on computers and a joker in a poker hand is a wildcard hand. The first two brown type pages, What do you think??

Dale Richards?AKG: The same Trappers that blazed the Santa Fe and Oregon Trail started the Outlaw Trail, It? was their main route between Taos and the North Rockies where they trapped and had Rendezvous year round.

Laurie James?AGK. did the cattle drives go? through Santa Fe or near Cimmeron?

Eric Schmidt?AGK: there is only one astericks?

Bryan Eagle
Hi From? Austin

TheStraightMustard?AGK: Can we? ask a question that isn’t in regards to the book especially if we don’t have the ability to usually be here when regular questions are asked? Thanks.

Quest geek?I believe he spent the night at the hidey spot by his juniper fire after hiding the chest? then returning to his car in the morning jmho…..from Tennessee

Virgil Caine is my name?AGK: Really enjoyed the Book? Club, great job!

Aksarben?Ak-sar-ben ( Nebraska spelled backwards, fitting? for a simple cypher)

John York?AGK; I? like the new wall art!

Steven Merillat

Steven Merillat?AGK – Im thinking about adding? a partner for the search, my area is 7000 x 200 at a high elevation 8000ft. ,pros and cons please. In the context of his Borders trips.

john gould?AGK? The first paragraph in “ For Whom the Bell Tolls”, — It sounds like it could have been written by Fenn about his? childhood. Laying on the forest floor by a stream, near a dam and a mill. Hmmm…

Bryan Eagle?Cool! Been here since the 70s, we have? the same solution. My ma lives by said lakes, swam there myself!

Bryan Eagle?I lived in Santa Fe? 94-97, worked on the plaza

Dale Richards?ATK: I sometimes feel like Fenn has? us all running around solving and presenting new solutions to historical mysteries of the west.

TheStraightMustard?I am a lady not a man, it’s ok. I get it,? weird name! Thanks for answering! Awesome!

Joey Pero?Hello? everyone !

Dale Richards?ATK: When I see a book on Fenn’s shelf I think it must be there to help? him solve a mystery or to reminisce.

TheStraightMustard?But on the border of Utah and Colorado do the San Juans or? the rockies come that close?

Joey Pero?@AGK Fenn talks about the size – dimension of? the books in Borders, as well as the fact they’re paperbacks. Have you taken a good look at the wonderful construction of his memoirs?

Susan Heckenliable?interesting the Time reference as well. Have you ever looked at an old map of northern nm? Or maybe an old map of the Outlaw? trail would be a good map.

Joey Pero?ATK =? A Tippsies KISS. Hahahha!

Dale Richards?Lol?

Bryan Eagle?ha~!?

TheStraightMustard?I wonder if the moral of the story is about western expansion or how the west was won since all the states? involved have a lot of history revolving around the wild west?

Mary Green?AGK fenn was buying books in jan 2010 hid treasure @ 79 or 80, 2010 turns 80 in aug. was he working on this book in jan 2010??

Paul Ammons?AGK?: FF Describes the weather both times? when he went to Borders (it was raining) For me it seemed odd to mention that?

steve remple?AGK Forrest writes? the word “time” 9X in this story. Do you think this means anything? 3,6,9? Time mag in trash seams so out of place.

Chris Johnson?@Joey The dimensions of the books Fenn gives seem to match the structure of the poem. Six (6) stanzas of four (4)? lines each

David Cline?When is your first trip of the year going? to be?

Steven Merillat?AGK one more? The story of his trips? to Border’s in my opinion is a story of the search > he was alone but had to get help for something while he was there. Then he was embarrassed by someone.

Bryan Eagle?@David Cline they said on Tues sometime in? the late spring this year

Mary Green?AGK? thanks

Susan Heckenliable?I think Time? is an important hint. The title page of the book is missing the printing date, it is in the back of the book instead.

TheStraightMustard?Or monsoon season??

Virgil Caine is my name?@steve remple he drinks Dr Pepper which is 10,2 and 4. Again? a reference to time

Dale Richards?AGK: I’ve been to? Brown’s Park too. It’s unique. I highly recommend a visit to Jarvie Ranch on Utah’s side if you go. And gas up before going in.

Thomas D?AGK interesting as always? thank you

Joey Pero?@AGK what? kind of wine today?

Paul McGinty?AGK: Thank you for your time?

TheStraightMustard?Thanks for a great show! ???

Laurie James?Wineries send wine all the time … ups. fed x …? no law against that.
