Pretty good theories on where the Houston box is, but location would require approval from the city to dig (under hard path now). Will be interesting if anyone gets that approval and finds it. I first heard of this last year from Expedition Unknown, and have seen the update shows. Great that someone finally found another one.

Here's something I found out the hard way: if you're looking to buy the book, don't bother. The original is long out of print, and what they sell now (even a 'normal' bookstore like Barnes & Noble) is just a print-on-demand. It's really crappy quality and the pictures are so dark, you can't see any detail.

But there's a great website that has high resolution images of all the pictures:

If you click on View Full Size for an image, you can zoom way in.

Thanks. I bought it a couple years ago and was quite disappointed in the quality.

When we watched Josh's show, we were thinking they should give the winner that original painting (or a big copy). That would be a cool prize.

I thought the same thing! I also hoped the artist would say more about it.

Did you notice that Jason got a pin, and his kids got a pin, but his wife got nothing? She was Chewie in the Throne Room.

I didn't notice that she didn't get something, but I just figured the other guys were being nice to the kids and making them feel part of the whole thing. She probably didn't care.
