A Clue in the Denver Museum of Science & History?

56 of the Objects in the Fenn Cache. Cast.

We have, on numerous occasions, been asked where we are planning our next recon. Between January 17, and January 22, we shall be traveling to Denver to visit the Denver Museum of Science and Nature. We believe there is at least a hint, and perhaps even a clue, hidden amongst its exhibits.

We will report on our findings next year.

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

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 Hint in Fenn’s OUAW? (The Curious Case of the Unique Postmark)

We have just begun our research on the postmarks printed in Fenn’s 11th book, and 3rd memoir, “Once Upon a While.” The first step in our research was photographing each of the postmarks in the book. While shooting the photos, this particular postmark stood out. We’ll discuss it, and our research into the postmarks in our next vlog: 1pm MST, Tuesday, November 28, 2017. Subscribe today to receive a notice, or open this window at the date and time above: https://www.youtube.com/c/agypsyskiss/live

And, we’ll post the other postmark images immediately upon the conclusion of our show that day.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Shelley & Toby


How Fenn Answer’s Question – Live Stream with Q & A (Includes Text from Chat)

Text from Live chat

A Gypsy’s Kiss​Hello! Who would like to be our chat admin today?

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

Rick Plank​Hello from Cincinnati.

Sledneck​Surprise show, cool, maybe I am just out of the loop. lol

Justin Posey​Greetings from Austin, TX

cwd.tvtribal1000​hello saw you at book signing:)

Justin Posey​Her last name is “Luce” 😃

B Cross​Good evening!

Chris Bischof​AGK- Weren’t you a little surprised that Preston & Fenn didn’t even mention the ‘Fenn’s car parked at the Denver Museum reference’in the forward? I realize its probably an “unhelpful hint”.

Chris Bischof​AGK – Seems like it was a huge statement to go unaddressed.

Sledneck​hard to talk about a book when you have not seen it…

Justin Posey​AGK: What are your thoughts on Preston indicating there are clues in Forrest’s new book? Forrest’s posture following Preston’s comment seemed to indicate Forrest was uncomfortable with that statement.

David Dow​Greetingd from Nevada City, California.

Michael De​It would have been so much nicer if the questions were submitted ahead of time and reviewed by the people on the stage.

Rick Plank​AGK: I got the feeling that Forrest wanted to go on, but he said that he was not in control here. Did you also get that feeling?

Michael De​AGK I asked last week about another book by Fenn. I was wondering if the book inside the treasure chest might get published after the chest is found?

Justin Posey​AGK: Which question were you planning to ask Forrest at the recent book signing, Toby?

cwd.tvtribal1000​agk… did Fenn store the treasure at his home before he hid it….or gallery?

Chris Bischof​AGK: Sorry off topic a bit. Do you recall an instance in his books or interviews where Forrest talks about Slip & Slide Creek? It’s killing me but cant find a specific reference.

MR G​AGK-Fenn has said that “WWWH” happens at a 1000 places in the rocky mountains. Do you believe that the “WWWH” in the poem is one of these places?…

MR G​Or do you think that his “warm waters halt” is something completely different?” i.e., only one specific place in the entire search area. Thanks.

Rick Plank​AGK: One of his responses at Moby Dickens was “Do you have a plane?” That response has always intrigued me. What are your thoughts?

MR G​AGK-Do you think that Fenn, in years past, flew his plane close to the treasure location and even landed? Thank you.

Michael De​Agk Thank you for your vlogs

JanKirb​AGK could the treasure be on private land that he owns somewhere in the 4 states?

Justin Posey​AGK: Forrest originally had an IOU in the chest as a way to see if it had been found. He has since devised a better scheme. Any thoughts on what the methodology is?

Cindy Guess​Thank you!!!

steve remple​AGK. Hello enjoy your blogs. In the book TTOTC pg128. He writes at age 58 he realizes that he has slept a little over 19 years of his life and 3 of those years were on Monday. Is this a clue???

cwd.tvtribal1000​agk has forest said if the gramar is correct…if Brown is a name meek not a name

Justin Posey​Game & trail cam 😃

Chris Bischof​Justin – I think there is something more in the chest instead of the IOU. He alluded to the fact he discovered a better way.

David Dow​Game cam

Justin Posey​Chris: I agree, and I also agree with Toby in that it is not electronic in nature.

Chris Bischof​I concur. FF doesn’t seem like a techie. Haha.

Bill Gorman​Hey, I caught you two live

Michael De​Maybe there’s a camera in the HOB

Bill Gorman​”Suddenly I felt like a crippled ant in an elephant parade” f

Justin Posey​Thank you, folks!

sharpcf73​Where you find it

Bill Gorman​Michael there are several cameras along the poem’s path

B Cross​Thanks for today’s Stream!

steve remple​thanks gypsy

Bill Gorman​You’re holding me up from doing a 360 drone video of the Fennzone.

cwd.tvtribal1000​agk OK thanks…send me private message if u like

Justin Posey​Shelley: congratulations and best of luck on the new channel!

Michael De​So Bill, your about to find the chest?

Bill Gorman​Men watch Shelley for reasons other than topic.

The Events of May 18 and November 2.

In our YouTube channel live stream this coming week we are going to opine on the events of May 18, 2017 and November 2, 2017 and how they have affected Fenn. The presentation will be followed by Q&A from the live chat, in which we will express more opinions.

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at 1pm MT

If you care to join the conversation, you can subscribe to our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/agypsyskiss. If you don’t care to subscribe you can go to https://www.youtube.com/c/agypsyskiss/live

If you miss it, the live stream will be posted to our YouTube channel within a few hours after the live stream.

There is no charge for either.

The End Has Drawn Nigh.

The following are my opinions.

I have, on more than one occasion, said and written that the event on May 18, 2017 caused a change in Fenn. He was already tired of the “activity” around the effort to find the treasure he hid. May 18, to me, was the straw that broke the burro’s back. Soon after that, Fenn made a conscious decision to put distance between him and the search. Effectively, he went quiet, to the extent that it became a topic of conversation in the community.

There was, of course, a production effort to get the new book out, but most of the work was performed by Jessica, Susan and Lou – with a little help from Preston. The book, perhaps providing the opportunity for Fenn to pay down some karmic debt. Not that he has much, mind you.

But, if there was any doubt about Fenn circling the proverbial wagons closer to him, the book signing at Collected Works in Santa Fe on November 2, 2017 should put those doubts to rest. Call it his swan song.

(We streamed it. You can see it here.)

Here’s what I observed: a man who has made another conscious decision to spend whatever remains of his life not worrying about whether his treasure he hid is found or not. He’s done. We will cover the topic more in our next week’s live stream on YouTube. Subscribe here.

He will, I believe, go quietly, bravely, confidently, securely, proudly, happily, and with a great sense of satisfaction, into the night.

And, I believe he’s entitled to every bit of it.

Godspeed, Forrest Fenn. Thank you.

Breaking News: Fenn Issues Awaited Safety Advisory

By Forrest Fenn, June 29, 2017

“When I said the treasure was not hidden in Utah or Idaho it was my plan not to narrow the search area further. But in the light of a recent accident, and in the interest of safety, I feel it necessary to alter that plan.

“The treasure chest is not under water, nor is it near the Rio Grande River. It is not necessary to move large rocks or climb up or down a steep precipice, and it is not under a man-made object.

“Please remember that I was about 80 when I made two trips from my vehicle to where I hid the treasure.

“Please be cautious and don’t take risks.

My guess is that in the last 7 years more than 250,000 people have searched for the treasure without suffering any serious injuries. I invite you to add your name to that list. The search is supposed to be fun.”
