My girls and I want to congradulate Airstream Dreams for being the Box of the week pick. We have enjoyed finding several of her LBs already (old and new) and look forward to hunting for more of her LB plants. Thank you too for all the help you have been while we are learning about this obsess....I mean hobby... ;)

I saw that too and bought the book (at my adult daughter's request) even though I wouldn't have a chance of figuring any of them out. That was a neat show--I saved it on my DVR.

I can't believe all these people are dying trying to find Fenn's Treasure. I saw that episode and he clearly said he walked to it from his car because it took multiple trips. Why are they riding the rapids and scaling mountains?

Unlike a letterbox, a box of real treasure is going to be really heavy! Not something you can easily lug up a mountain. It seems like it would be within a few miles of a parking spot. I heard that someone has walked right by it and missed it.

Fenn's Treasure is probably not that heavy. Although I've never read anything specific about the weight, Fenn took photos of the treasure (and box) before he hid it. It appears to only be about the same of a decent sized shoebox. Plus he was supposedly dying of cancer when he hid it. So I can't imagine he was at the top of his game, physically, at the time. He has also said that it was easily within walking distance from his car. All of that together leads me to believe that anyone would be able to carry it. And yeah, Fenn has claimed that many people have come within 500 feet of it, and at least one that came within 200 feet!

I'm wondering how he knows they were within 200 feet of it unless he is able to watch. Close to his home? But then he wouldn't have had to drive. Hmm.

He knows because people are making detailed accounts of their adventures. Many of these people even show up on local news talking about where they are hunting. The treasure is a secret. The exploits of some of the treasure hunters... not so much of a secret.

I would love to test carve because I use a gouge and/or surgical scalpel to carve depending on the medium. Thank you so much for your efforts in finding carving material!

Could be full of bull and is messing with us. Either way, he needs to take the bull by the horns to regain control.

This is indeed exciting news!
I'd happily throw my hat (and dollars) into the ring to get a small slab for trial carving. If it sweetens the pot, I'll offer to write you a new "Webfoot/Stampeaz Theme Song"...

(are the old Jackbear Letterpods still available anywhere? I can't remember what the original Stampeaz Theme Song was...)

Will there be a Youtube video of you performing this new theme song?

Totally unrelated question, do the eye-bleach patches work on ears, too??

Just wondering . . .

I'm sure they're out there somewhere. I can't remember the theme song at the moment either - it'll probably wake me up in the middle of the night.

I do still have the "Stampeaz Stumper" stamp, though. :)
