New Mexico…I’m Sad…

I just went out and checked….The sunset is still beautiful today, turning the Sandia Mountains into their watermelon color..The birds are still singing and all the neighbors are moving about as normal….I just don’t know how…We lost in the opening round of the NCAA dance….To, er, Harvard and one of the hottest three point shooters I have witnessed in awhile..Our boys just seemed to leave him alone and let him shoot and other than Alex Kirk on the inside, had no answer for him at all. I had hoped this was our year, as had a bunch of others….Well, at 29 – 6, winners of the Mountain West Conference and Tourney both, it was a pretty good year, Coach Alford got himself a pretty good raise and another 10 years or so on his contract, and he is worth it. He is the MWC Coach of the Year…He is a very good coach and we did have a good team and I enjoyed watching them this year. Most all of us did, well, the grippers will continue to gripe, but the rest of us realize he is a pretty special coach.   Congradulations Lobos….You had a good run…Pete

Mexican Invasion

Is it just me or have we already had a Mexican invasion? All the papers are talking about the new Latino population explosion and the millions of Latinos now giving the Democrats the upper hand at the polls,  and our language needs to now be in English and Spanish, if we stop a suspected illegal for questioning we are profiling, and New Mexico drivers license can be granted to those who have entered out country illegally, and the feds (a democratic administration) wants to grant amnesty to another 11 million illegals this year….. Mexico is taking over and never firing a shot and never spending a dollar in their conquest….Well, maybe its better this way……I am sure its just me because we protect our shores from foreign invasions….Don’t we? Oh yeah, I forgot, that’s a fence, huh, not a shore…..

Lizard Ready for Prime Time TV

You remember me telling you about the Sand Dune Lizard down in SE New Mexico and Far West Texas being on the endangered list. I also told you an agreement between the oil exploration and production companies had been reached. According to todays, March 15, 2013 Albuquerque Journal, agreements signed by those parties are confidential, even from the federal government. Nobody knows what is in them ….I guess that means the Sheriff’s Dept, the FBI,  The Texas Rangers and probably even the Border Patrol, do not know what is in them. So they really don’t know if the little fellow will be protected or not……. Here is the solution as I see it. We have this little fellow with this weird accent on tv every night. Our Sand Dune lizard has a West Texas Drawl, but we can understand him, so lets put him on tv. He will probably say, “Well, tonight I’m a coming to you from Odessa, Texas, folks and we have a real deal for you if you will call in early. Two policies for the price of one, if you live in Texas and have a gun rack in your pick up……What, you don’t have a pick up….Boy, you better get back on up yonder to New York City then…We can’t guarantee you protection if you ain’t got no 30 – 30 in your gun rack.”….Ok, ok, that is a little bit much….But it’s at least has to be a .22 automatic….And yeah, that seems a little small…

Buried Treasure..Maybe not…NM, Maybe not…

Another e-mail from our Houston sources…More good stuff…Pete
 
I WENT TO YOUR WEBSITE , HESTERBOOKS.COM AND I REALLY LIKED WHAT
YOU SAID ! THANK YOU ! IT IS NICE TO FEEL APART OF THIS TREASURE HUNT !
ALSO, I READ THE PAPER AGAIN THAT YOU ALL SENT, AND IT SAID THE
TREASURE IS IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS AND HE WROTE, “I NEVER SAID THAT
IT WAS IN NEW MEXICO AND I NEVER SAID IT WAS BURIED, ONLY THAT I HID IT
BETWEEN TWO AND FOUR YEARS AGO, SOMEWHERE IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS.”
SO THIS PUTS A DIFFERENT CLUE TO THE TREASURE.
THERE ARE SOME WARM SPRINGS IN OURAY, COLORADO WHICH IS
NEAR DURAGO AND SILVERTON. WE HAVE BEEN IN THEM AND YOU WALK INTO
THE CAVE.
I THINK THE BIG THING IS TO FIND THE “WARM WATERS” THAT HE IS TALKING
ABOUT. ALSO, THERE IS OJO CALIENTE SPRINGS TOO NEAR SANTA FE.
ON THE INTERNET THERE WAS A LADY FROM TEXAS THAT GOT LOST
A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO TRYING TO FIND IT. DID YOU READ THAT ?
THEY FOUND HER AND SHE IS OKAY.
LET US KNOW IF YOU COME UP WITH ANYTHING ELSE. THIS IS FUN,
AND KEEPS ONE THINKING OF WHERE IT COULD BE.

The Thrill of the Chase by Forrest Fenn…more clues for the buried treasure

…..Ok, folks, this just in from Houston, Tx from friends who live there now, but they still maintain a cabin in the Jemez Mountains. What do you guys think about these ideas. We could be getting hot, huh? I removed the e-mail heading and address, etc. If you have questions I might entice them to parlay a few more tidbits of info to us. Many thanks, Carolyn, and I hope we have provided clues that will help our readers in finding the treasure. Pete…………Here are the messages…….

THANKS PETE ! I GOOGLE MR. FENN AND GOT THE POEM. VERY INTERESTING AND

VERY CHALLENGING TO WHERE THE “TREASURE” IS AND IN WHAT PART OF
NEW MEXICO. ALSO, IT MUST BE CLOSE TO SOME CABINS OR HOMES BECAUSE
OF MR. FENN MENTIONING THE HOME OF BROWN. WHEN HE SAYS, WATER HIGH
THAT TO ME MEANS A WATERFALL. ALSO, AT THE FIRST WHEN HE SAID
AS I HAVE GONE ALONE IN THERE THAT TO ME MEANS HE GOES BEHIND THE
WATERFALL AND INTO A CAVE. I THINK IT COULD BE SODA SPRINGS IN THE
JEMEZ.
IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHERE THE TREASURE IS FOUND.
CAROLYN
PETE,

OF COURSE YOU CAN USE MY CLUES. I DOUBT IF WE WILL BE COMING BACK
JUST TO LOOK FOR THE TREASURE. AND YOU ALSO CAN USE MY NAME TOO.
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO GET THERE ? IT IS REALLY CLOSE TO SANTA FE,
FROM ALBUQUERQUE, GO 550 OUT OF BERNALILLO TO SAN YSIDRO AND THEN TAKE
HIGHWAY 4 TO JEMEZ SPRINGS.
 
THERE WILL BE A FORK IN THE ROAD AT SAN YSIDRO AND TAKE THE RIGHT ROAD WHICH IS HWY. 4.
AND ON UP. I LOOKED JEMEZ SPRINGS UP IN OUR TRIPLE A TOUR BOOK,
AND THIS IS THE DECRIPTION OF JEMEZ SPRINGS. (ABOUT 13 MILES NORTH OF
JEMEZ PUEBLO,THE HOT MINERAL WATERS AT JEMEZ SPRINGS ATTRACTED
SPAINISH EXPLORERS, PUEBLO DWELLERS, COWBOYS, MINERS AND
PIONEERS. A BATH HOUSE BUILT HERE IN THE 1870’S CONTINUES TO SERVE WEARY TRAVELERS.
FIVE MILES NORTH ARE THE SODA DAM AND BATTLESHIP ROCK FORMATIONS. THERE ARE
PICNIC FACILITIES AT BATTLESHIP ROCK, AND TROUT FISHING.
 
BEING CLOSE TO SANTA FE YOU GO FROM SANTA FE TO LOS ALAMOS AND THEN
CUT THROUGH TO HIGHWAY 4. VERY INTERESTING ! MR. FENN MIGHT OF GONE THAT WAY SINCE
HE IS FROM SANTA FE. IT WOULDN’T BE THAT FAR AT ALL. JUST 285 TO 502 TO HIGHWAY 4 AND
THEN TO SODA DAM. LOOK AT YOUR MAP AND SEE IF THAT IS WHAT YOU THINK.
 
THANKS, THIS HAS BEEN FUN. WISH YOU ALL “GOOD LUCK.”
CAROLYN
Carolyn, May I use your clues on the web site… Thanks, Pete
 
 

 

Buried Treasure North of Santa Fe..For Real…

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 01-03-2013

Mr. Forrest Fenn is his book, The Thrill of The Chase, has written a poem in that book that gives clues to the place where he buried a Romanesque Box containing treasures and the box  is a treasure in its self as it dates from A.D. 1150. But also, inside the box are several gold nuggets, two the size of your fist….265 gold coins…..and jewels, rubies, emeralds, diamonds, he claims a total value of over $250,000.00. This morning on NBC, I believe, he said it was buried in the Rocky Mountains north of Santa Fe above 5000 feet in elevation. What a clue, as I don’t really know of a location north of Santa Fe under 5000 feet. Santa Fe is about 7500 feet. Espanola is about 5595, Chimayo is 6075 feet. And, remember Georgia O’Keefe, world renown painter lived at Abiquiu, which is about 6027 feet. And get this…..Ok, before I tell you I would like a cut of 10 % if you find it in this general area….alright then, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was filmed in this area…Cowboys and Aliens was filmed in this area and……City Slickers was filmed in this area. Remember the second film where Curly’s brother took the boys to the cave on the treasure hunt, that was up there….That could be where Mr. Fenn got his idea and he could have used the same cotton picking cave….Ok, don’t all of you rush up there at once. There is limited places to stay…I think I will go ahead and head up that way….Ok, you folks just forget what I said, ok…..Just a joke…Ha, ha…..I was just kidding…. Anyway, its still pretty cold up in them thar hills…..Naw, it’s way to cold to come out here now…..Pete Hester ps….update, he said in the poem in the book to “begin where the warm waters stop and take it in the canyon down not far…but to far to walk”….Now let me see, is there a warm springs that drain into a river, like the hot springs at Jemez Springs that run into the Jemez River….Well, I don’t remember a canyon near there….Oh, he did say “up the canyon without a paddle” so I reckon that means a dry canyon, huh? Gee, I don’t know, confusing huh? Well, if my clues help, please consider a tip..Pete

 

 


 

Hispanic Population Soars In U. S.

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 25-02-2013

So says the front page article of the Sunday, Feb. 24, 2013 addition of the Albuquerque Journal. I can only ask, “where you been folks?”.  It Further states, “population explodes by 47% nation wide, underscoring the political muscle Latinos showed in the 2012 elections. Also, “bringing our total Hispanic population to about 52 million….Me talking now, and when we add the additional 11 million by granting amnesty the democrats can count on a bountiful election records for the future. The paper states, “The skyrocketing growth of the U. S. Hispanics assures they will continue to influence political life…..” Well, dud, thanks for sharing that. And do any of us believe we can stop the illegal flow from across the border?….I am not picking on my American Hispanic friends…I have many. And they are not the problem.. The new comers come day and night and they are not invited. If our own population would do the work the illegals perform we would not have a problem at all. We are too lazy……But, boys and girls, in case you have not noticed we have our hands full taking care of our present population now and we are going to keep adding more? …We can vote for more and more benefits but the bank account is already overdrawn and we may have a “come to Jesus” meeting in March and the balance of 2013. And that would be complements of our congress and our “voting population”. Think I am wrong? Well, then I hope you are right, however, we should soon know…..

I happened to need an oil change today and spent about 1 1/2 hours or so at Brakemaster’s waiting on an oil change. It was a very fast 1 1/2 hours as I spent the time visiting with Andrew Thomas who was also waiting. It was a very interesting time spent with this world traveler and hearing of the countries that he has toured and visiting with him on other numerous subjects, ie, Navajo Code Talkers of WWII and how they formulated the codes based on the Navajo language. Words in English that start with an A may start with a W in Navajo. That was a turning point in World War Two and I expressed my thanks to those Code Talkers for their input. That was a part of several topics that we covered. Goggle Andrew and read his bio and even listen to some of his music, as I did. If you happen to come by this site Andrew I would like to say that it was a pleasure visiting with you and maybe I will see you at the Navajo Cultural Center on my next visit. Pete Hester
