Lady Luck & A $1 Million Dollar Treasure

September 10, 2013
   When I was in Santa Fe last weekend I had the distinct feeling I needed to pay attention and play my cards right.

Daily Whipout, "Santa Fe Madam: Playing Your Cards Right"

   I had lunch with Forrest Fenn last Saturday. He took me to a great place, Harry's Roadhouse on the east side of town, where we talked about all things art show related. He was full of such great advice and stories. He's a handful.

   I was more interested in his art show treasures rather than the $1 million dollar treasure he has hidden somewhere in the West, BUT I did get a sense of where the treasure is. I mean this generally, like I said, we really didn't talk about the hunt for his treasure but it did come up and his comment had me thinking, Hmmmmmmm. Once the next issue hits our subscribers I'll be more specific. I have no interest in looking for the booty myself but I would love for one of our readers to find it. And when you see the clues, I think you will see what I mean. We had one of our senior editors sift through all of the clues online and in Forrest's two books (we had a sneak look at his latest which comes out this month) and we took just the best and distilled them down for your benefit.

  We got another batch of rain today! Just crazy good. Shot these clouds on the way home for lunch. They dumped on us pretty good.

   Got back into the office just fine and finished a couple projects. Working hard on a couple layouts. Wrestling with a big painting idea and need to go home and work on it.
