Live Stream of Forrest Fenn on November 2nd From Collected Works

F O R  I M M E D I A T E  R E L E A S E
September 18, 2017 – Albuquerque, New Mexico

Shelley Carney and Toby Younis of A Gypsy’s Kiss announced today that they have agreed to live stream the launch and signing of Fenn’s new book, “Once Upon a While” on the evening of Thursday, November 2nd, 2017 from the Collected Works Bookstore in Santa Fe, New Mexico. New York Times best-selling author, Douglas Preston, who wrote the foreword to the book, will share the dais with Fenn.

Younis said, “We’re very pleased Forrest has given us the opportunity to share this special event with the world. This will be the fourth event we’ve streamed on his behalf.” Viewers can watch the stream live on Carney’s and Younis’ YouTube Channel ( A recording will also be made available after the event.

More details will follow as the event nears.

Notes on the recently released foreword to Fenn’s new book – a foreword written by Douglas Preston.

There’s an old saying in the intelligence community. We stole it from Ian Fleming. “Goldfinger,” if I recall correctly.

It goes like this: “Once is happenstance, twice coincidence, and three times, enemy action.

As we predicted, the search community, for the most part, has been sent into a tizzy over the release of the foreword to Fenn’s upcoming book, “Once Upon a While.” The book, according to the announcement, will be “launched” at an event at the Collected Works Bookstore in Santa Fe on November 2. It is, apparently, a reediting and reorganizing of 39 of Fenn’s previously published “Scrapbooks.”

We conclude that the foreword, while written by Preston, was produced with the council and edit of Fenn. It does exactly what was intended.

At this juncture, the only prediction we can make with a high level of confidence is that, before the end of 2017, some poor soul will be arrested attempting to dig in or around the Denver Museum of Nature and History.

The treasure has not been found, and none of this Fenn-driven effort will get you any closer to finding it. On the other hand:

  • It will sell books on behalf of Fenn’s beneficiaries, Susan and Lou.
  • It will guarantee a standing room only crowd at Collected Works and very likely, media coverage.
  • It re-energizes a flagging search community. (Although some of the more “introspective” have already announced their departures from the search in long, boring, pedantic and manipulative missives. You know who you are, cowboy, don’t you?)
  • It waves yet another shiny object to simultaneously misdirect and enthuse searchers who will question the validity of the “solves” they have been nurturing for years.

There are easily recognizable patterns in this, all of which are in the benefit of Chief Marketing Magician, Fenn – and, none of which will get searchers any closer to the treasure than the infamous map included in “Too Far to Walk.” Contrary to what some are already imagining, this is not a Fenn attempt to ensure the treasure is found before his death. If anything, it ensures that it will NOT be found before his death. A happy Fenn is a Fenn that dies knowing his legacy is intact.

More analysis and conclusions to follow in an upcoming video. You can download the full version of Preston’s foreword here: Treasure of Another Kind.

Until then, here’s the short version of our advice: Believe the poem, and question everything else from the master of misdirection, especially when it includes a dozen or more distinct rabbit holes in a single pass. If you needed any more evidence that Fenn’s treasure is hidden in New Mexico, Preston’s Foreword to Fenn’s next book is it.

Colorado? Seriously?

How to Get the TTOTC Wall Map, Limited Edition Print Signed by Fenn (Before it’s too late!)

TTOTC Map by BenchmarkWhy is it important?

Because as of this morning, there are only 35 of the 100 numbered prints remaining.

As I used to say to my kids, you have two options.

Option #1, useful if you don’t live near Santa Fe, New Mexico. Those interested must email Bridger DeVille at Benchmark Maps only as the time/date stamp determines their place in line. He will call you directly. You can contact him by visiting the Benchmark Webpage dedicated to the map by clicking here. Bridger said that they had about 15 maps remaining, and provided this screen-captured map indicated from whence the already processed orders have come.

They’re $100 including processing, packaging and shipping along with the certificate of authenticity.

Option #2 is to walk in to Collected Works Bookstore and Coffeeshop in Santa Fe. You can buy them over the counter. If purchased in this manner, the certificates of authenticity are available from Bridger if requested by email. I spoke with Joel, one of the CW staffers this morning, and he said they had about 20 remaining.

My recommendation? Act now!

And, as always, good luck with your search.
