The Postmarks in Fenn’s “Once Upon a While” | Live Stream with Live Q & A | Includes Text From



A Gypsy’s Kiss​Start your questions to us with AGK:

A Gypsy’s Kiss​😃

Jimmy Fast​Welcome

Rick Plank​Hello from Cincinnati!

Jason Hilgerson​AGk

jaswinters​Hello from Iowa

Bryan Schultz

Jimmy Fast​I will

Man In The Barn​I’m in

A Gypsy’s Kiss​Jimmy Fast is today’s mod. Thank you!

Jason Hilgerson​AGk Shelly I checked out your other. Very informative, made me reflect on my own relationship. Good advice👍🏻

Jason Hilgerson​Jas winters I’m from IA as well

Jason Hilgerson​I live up by Decorah

jaswinters​Clear Lake

Pamela Shetron​AGK What are your thoughts about the treasure chest being donated anonymously to the Smithsonian? Do you think the poem is Fenn’s funeral procession?

Cmonkeyification​AGK: What’s with the postmarks in TTOTC? I’ve never seen a similar postmark used anywhere. Why the discrepancy in day of week and actual day?

Jason Hilgerson​It would be kinda cool to hang out with a like mind

B Cross​Good Evening

Man In The Barn​That’s a great image

Cindy Guess​I’m with Shelly on the stamps

jaswinters​AGK think Fenn is telling people who are making the book do certain things special to the book for clues or is just the creators of the book just adding things to make it look like era of the stories?

MR G​AGK: If you had to guess, how old do you think Forrest was when he first discovered the treasure location and what might he have been doing there?

imont80​AGK… greetings from McAllen Tx

Man In The Barn​AGK: I too have spent a lot of time looking at the postmarks. Found nothing… What % of a possibility do you think they may be a red herring?

jaswinters​facebook me

Jason Hilgerson​4sure

B Cross

ashley bergstrom

Pamela Shetron​Thanks! Do you think there is a good reason why the chest was left unlocked and the key to the chest rest on top?

jaswinters​hilgerson www1idwillhe.wordpressdotcom

Cmonkeyification​AGK: Back to the TTOTC postmarks. Statistically, wouldn’t at least one day name and date line up?

Matt​Nothingburgers are delicious

Wayne Peterson​agk if you put in a museum they insure it and might pay you to display it

Matt​AGK, would applying the Sloane joke perhaps align the dates? Sloane said he was born 1910 vs 1905, something like that from ttotc…

Pamela Shetron​AGK,Thanks! Do you think there is a good reason why the chest was left unlocked and the key to the chest rest on top?

JanKirb​AGK Do you think he was looking for artifacts or a good fishing spot or just a good view when he found his place?

Edward Owen​Great show, Where are you two going next in yoru search?

jaswinters​AGK Toby and Shelly Have you met fenns wife and what does she say about fenn wanting to be buried without her i know my grandma would be mad??

Man In The Barn​AGK: I too have spent a lot of time looking at the postmarks. Found nothing… What % of a possibility do you think they may be a red herring?

Rick Plank​AGK: Do you think the postmark stamps are created by Forrest himself?

JT​Fenn has said the chest was not locked, but the key was inside the chest. He also said he didn’t want to lock it b/c he didn’t want the finder to break the chest in order to open it.


Jimmy Fast​[message retracted]

David Whiskey​The chest is worth big money by it self.

JanKirb​[message retracted]

JanKirb​AGK BTW you may run into a park ranger at Mesa Verde by the name of ………….Christy Brown


JT​AGK: What are your thoughts on the story about the stolen ball of string? There is mention of the mail man in this story as well. Was this discussed earlier in the show? I was late.

Jimmy Fast​Not the mail man, the post man

JT​my mistake, thanks for the correction

John Wood​[message retracted]

Jimmy Fast​I wondered about the ball of string too

David Whiskey​Thanks guys

Matt​could be a figure of speech, spinning a good yarn

Cindy Guess​Thanks, AGK!!!

A Gypsy’s Kiss
Say something… (slow mode is on)

Clues in “Once Upon a While?”


But we believe there are hints – a matching pair in the preface Preston wrote, no less.

The Fenn Inflection Points: May 18 and November 2, 2017 (Live Stream with Q&A) – Live Chat Included Below


Special thanks to Man in the Barn for volunteering to moderate our chat.

Jimmy Fast​For not being able to hear, Forrest sure came alive and changed the subject when Shiloh said you should see the museum basement

Seannm The “Third Act” so to speak

Michael De​what about the “unauthorized biography with the treasure?

B Cross​AGK: I was surprised Forrest said it was not really raining at Borders as he said Did I understand him correctly that he added that simply as a matter for readers” interest?

Joel Lewicki​ AGK: Do you think his reticence to answer questions is because he is concerned that he will go off script and reveal more than he wants?

Eric Schmidt ​Michael De – that is not available to anyone

Cindy Guess​ AGK: Have you met Shiloh previously and do you think Fenn’s children/grandchildren have had any interest in searching for the treasure.

ashley bergstrom ​AGK: Or do we think Shiloh will keep a presence with searchers going forward?

MR G​ What is with this Kyle guy that has posted a series of new videos about the Treasure being at San Lazaro and some secret book about “Lost Kivas”?

Stephanie Thirtyacre​ Kelly is daughter told me she went on a search. she wouldn’t say where though.

gallant171​ AGK: What kind of clues, if any, do you think are in the new book?

Man In The Barn ​AGK – well said- During the release of the OUAW the FF team started referring to TFTW as a memoir. I always heard it as a scrap book. Do you see that as something to pay attention too?

Michael De ​AGK do you think FF last book will be the Unauthorzed biography”?

OG Slap Slap​ Thanks dog

Eric Schmidt ​AGK – I have read through the book, and was mostly pleased with the various stories… however the one on the spices was like a big question mark? What was the point of that?

MR G​ Toby have you began reading the new book? Opinion?

Seannm ​AGK: Shelly take Toby shirt shopping 🙂

OG Slap Slap​Lmaooooooooooooo

Jimmy Fast ​Lol

jaswinters ​AGK I do believe there is a chest and been on the chase BOTG twice and like Mr. Fenn but after researching him 2+years he does say he is a charleton and story teller + FBI scandal what do u think?

Eric Schmidt​ AGK – Toby the writer’s name is Max Evans

MR G ​AGK-What is with this Kyle guy that has posted a series of videos about the Treasure being at San Lazaro and some secret book about “Lost Kivas”?

Cindy Guess​ AGK: I believe Mr. Fenn’s facial expression said he knew Preston was going to say the new book contains vital clues. If this is true, do you think we should not believe that it does contain clues?

MR G ​AGK-Toby do you think there is anything in the poem that needs to be deciphered according to a technical/scientific approach?

ashley bergstrom​im taking off from my kids!!

Matt​Careful Toby, those ppl will read between the lines. that no he didn’t draw it, but directed the person to, therefore they reinforce their belief there is something there. lol

GhostriderI​ AGK- From what ya’ll know of Mr.Fenn What are some things that would make a place “special”

Eric Schmidt Ghostriderl they have a vlog on that subject

GhostriderI​ Ok Thanks I missed it

Stephanie Thirtyacre​ I don’t know he ever says never. I’d like him to do videos with you guys. Maybe with questions he has time to see.

Cindy Guess ​Stephanie, I think that would be great!

Eric Schmidt​ There are some… I have found at least one I believe

Cindy Guess​ Hi Sis! I know you’re out there!

Tl Mattes​ Hey

Cindy Guess​ Shelley, love your hair!

Michael De​agk can you chase down the use of 2’s in some future vlog?

Stephanie Thirtyacre ​I agree Cindy. she has great hair.

Steve Klein​ AGK.No clues in new book but Preston says thzere is fenn knows there are no new clues but still lets Preston lie about it to sell the book. What’s up with that?

OG Slap Slap ​AGK: In TFTW Forrest mentioned that there’s no swimming where geyser riverlets enter a stream. He has brought up what to do if you find it on NPS land multiple times. Is it a likely possibility?

Matt Hawrysko​ Congratulations!

Tl Mattes​ Toby woo hoo nothing better than Grandbabies!!

jaswinters​ Congrats on the Grand Baby

Eric Schmidt​ Congratulations Toby!

Stephanie Thirtyacre ​what if the no more clues, because someone is close?

Steve Klein ​Ok then grandpa

steve remple​ akg: In your opinion, the subtle hints in ttotc are hints to all the clues in the poem, or just wwwh? or hob? or the blaze? what are your thoughts?? congrats on new grandkids.

GhostriderI​ Congratulations…😃

Michael De​ AGK congrats, a new team member to search with.

Eric Schmidt​ Sounds good!

Eric Schmidt​ Gotta get back out to work! Talk to you next week! Thanks guys.

Jesse Weaver ​I’m the same way. My closet looks like a cartoon character’s.

Mary Green​ sounds good

Mary Green​agk sounds good

Matt ​I believe the FBI case is why he released the book when he did. during the book release, Fenn said he asked Preston to write the book, way back before Preston wrote the Codex.

B Cross​ AGK: Have you ever seriously considered the Santa Cruz Lake area for the treasure?

Mary Green ​agk did you guys get to Q fenn during the b signing

Matt Hawrysko​ AGK Do you differentiate between hints and clues? do you think there may be more hints in the book even though Preston said clues?

Jim Little​ The key word is located in D. Preston Lost City of M.G.

Matt​ AGK, is there any point in which you’ll give up, if you don’t find the chest?

Stephanie Thirtyacre​ biography in chest….hmm difference in bio verses memoir?

fossilman123 ​if only two clues can be found on a map,is it a waist of time to look for “home of brown” on a map or even other clues

Mary Green ​difference in bio verses memoir, i dont think any diff

Bryan Schultz ​AGK how am i gonna spend that much money when i find it?

Jesse Weaver ​AGK How often does Toby use his pirate voice while you’re BOTG?

Mary Green ​used interchangeably

Michael De​Bryan I’ll be glad to help.

Jim Little ​Forrest got caught up being sage, I hope he can recover

Joel Lewicki​ AGK: Great job in all you do! What advice do you have for searchers who may be stuck on their failed solution to the poem?

Tl Mattes​ Another good job everyone 😃 Thanks for the info.

Cindy Guess​ Thanks!

Stephanie Thirtyacre​ he said Susan designed the cover and he didn’t.

Mary Green ​thanks agk

sharpcf73  ​I was curious about the cover

Matt​ what say you Stephanie, is there a point of ending the search?

Stephanie Thirtyacre​ not yet Matt. I’ve been searching since June 1st. only home for about two weeks total.

Mary Green​ Stephanie Thirtyacre have you figed the word that is key

Matt ​just curious how long the dedication would last by long term searchers before it may be slowly put aside.

steve remple​ Good ? Mary. Have you? For a while I thought it was “waters”

Stephanie Thirtyacre​ I do have a word that’s key. hope it’s correct, but you never know. how about you?

Mary Green ​me too thought waters, now ?

Mary Green​ been working with tarry

steve remple​ I’m leaning toward Brown now…. subject to change

Stephanie Thirtyacre ​mine isn’t in poem.

Matt ​Would you be surprised if there isn’t a word that unlocks anything. but it’s just another term to focus back on the first clue?

steve remple​ Stephanie, hmmm?

steve remple​ not playing by the rules. lol

Mary Green​ fenn said it was in poem didnt he

steve remple ​I believe so

Matt​ visit how the FBI case was dismissed, key word used was discovered. Fenn said they didn’t know, therefore it was dismissed

Stephanie Thirtyacre ​I don’t believe he said it was in the poem. maybe I’m wrong…but not aware he said anything like that.

steve remple​ I’ll look into that Matt. I’m not sure what that’s about.

steve remple ​Stephanie are you currently looking or done for the season

Matt​ go tarryscant, search key word, there is two entries

Stephanie Thirtyacre​ currently

Mary Green​ something like people are in tight focus on a word that is key, so may get solved soon

steve remple​ That’s it Mary

Stephanie Thirtyacre​ bye all. thanks Toby and Shelley.

steve remple​ see ya. happy hhunting

Mary Green​ bye

Mary Green​ was paraphrasing, i think its over at MW

steve remple​ but forrest insists searchers have nothing if they don’t get the first clue correct. Makes me think key word is in first clue?
