Forrest Fenn’s Treasure

Posted by Pete | Posted in Downloads | Posted on 28-06-2019

Remember Fenn’s poem: “As I have gone alone in there, and with my treasure bold, I can keep my secret where, and hint of riches new and old, Begin it where warm waters halt and take it in the canyon down, not far, but to far to walk, put in below the home of Brown, From there no place for the meek….” and on and on it goes….but lets stop there:

It has been a while since I have mentioned the millions hidden, er, well, somewhere above 5000 feet in elevation, somewhere north of Santa Fe, NM, not buried and not in a graveyard…..In Mr. Fenn’s poem he says, “Began where the warm waters halts”,  which implies to me it  is near a hot springs that dumps into a canyon that runs into a fast cold water stream, say like the Rio Grande north of Santa Fe and south of Taos, which probably is “home to a few brown trout”…. “No place for the meek”, so I’m pretty sure it is not right there on the river which is bordered by a nice paved road….Probably up some canyon around that area with a road that a four wheel drive can travel over. “Mr. Fenn is no spring chicken, so he is not walking, carrying that chest to bury it and he would not want to be seen.” No doubt he is off the beaten path by a good ways…..Then look for a waterfall, not a lot of water most of the time, but enough to cover a opening to a cave of sorts and behold, and not to far  off that little road and there sitting on the ground, high and dry away from the water, is the chest full of treasure. Just waiting for you and me to pick up…….Well, no, I don’t know exactly where it is, but I’m pretty sure it’s in that general area. So, why don’t I go look. I’m older than Mr. Fenn. …..I don’t have a four wheel drive vehicle….. And I don’t need all that excitement in my life….Otherwise I’d go looking….I think I could find it in two or three outings…well, ok, maybe four or five outing….well, I think I could….listen, I’m a writer of fiction so I know what you are thinking…..But, really folks, this is no bull….ok, a little guess work, maybe

Trump….A Political Outsider

Trump can get no respect from the politicians  in Washington….Nor does he get any respect or good air time from the media. No one wants to go to The White House to be honored or have a meeting with the President of the United States. When Obama was in office people were stumbling all over them selves trying to have a meeting or get to see him, even to the point of crashing parties….Everyone seemed to love Obama, but he did nothing and was pushed around by all the world powers. His motto seemed to be, “let the slick end slide and the rough end drag”. No one ever kicked at him because he was so good at waving, smiling, and greeting that no one wanted to.

Now, President Trump, tough on everything that comes up. NATO, he told them to pay their fair share, something that should have been said and acted on many years ago. Aid to other countries….told them that they did not have to like us, but they had to show us respect to continue getting aid, the way that it should be. Immigration…come through the front door and be welcomed, come through the back door and be sent home. And I think he will get tougher still. Illegal immigrants….lets build a wall and keep them out. Moved the United States Embassy to Jerusalem, Israel as he should do and as Presidents since 1999 should have, only they did not have the guts to move it. Amen?…..He has trouble getting anyone to listen in Washington which tells us even more that he is an outsider. Pushes states to act on federal laws as they should. It is outrageous the way some of our states and citizens of some states treat the Office of the President of the United States. They don’t care….He’s an outsider.

He is an outsider…Ask NBC. Ask CNN. Ask CBS. Ask ABC and even FOX…..He’s an outsider, though they call him many other things but it all comes down to HE IS AN OUTSIDER.  All of them think he does not deserve to be in that office and they make it as difficult as they can for him. Even if he wins 2020 by a landslide, they will figure he cheated….Some how, they don’t know how, but he cheated to win 2020….Believe me, he is an outsider today and tomorrow.

To some of us he is the President of The United States of America. The leader of our great country. Not all of his ideas are the greatest, but most of them are good and have the welfare of the American citizen at heart. I don’t think he hates women nor any minorities and serves us all. He needs a chance to become an insider. Who knows, it could happen, but I don’t think so. He does not think or act like a politician….That’s what most of us like about him. He’s an outsider…

 

Clouds and Computers…..A Rip Off If You Ask Me!!!!!!

Computer life sucks anymore. It is getting where a person cannot save his information to his own computer. You have a picture, sent by a friend, that you want to use on a web site or social media and you have all kinds of problems getting it to work.

I get so discouraged trying to make sense of computers, I was never very good with one and the new computers are not helping….Clouds…..Storage in Clouds…..pay to store in clouds…save to a file and then you cannot find the file on your own computer….It is a rip off if you ask me. Someone, anyone needs to come up with a “new” system where one can store ones information on ones own computer……what a novel idea, huh….invent a computer where you can store stuff from the internet on your own computer with no clouds involved.

Hey, I would buy one…..Someone, Anyone, a college type real sharp on computers….How about it Mr. College Man? You can probably make a fortune…..Really, I would buy one…..

Vallecito Reservoir, Colo….Fishing and Visiting…

With 12 to 18 feet of snow remaining in the mountains around Vallecito reservoir, snowmelt is coming in very fast bringing in all kind of food for the fishes…..Very few were going after our baits. Very disappointing….However,  our food was great, that did not change and we all enjoyed that. Our younger fishermen were also hoping to do a little four wheeling but with all the snow up on the mountains all the trails were closed. Another disappointment, but  a great time was had by all.  Our stay again was at Croll’s Cabins.
