Featured Question with Forrest Fenn and The Thrill of the Chase Treasure Hunt: Photoshop Mysteries
There is talk on the chatter boards that you photoshopped some of the pictures in your TTOTC book. Care to settle that question once and for all? Ollie
Ollie, I have not photoshopped anything because I don’t know how, and never had a reason to learn.
On page 64 of TTOTC our book designer put Skippy in the driver’s seat of his car. She searched my photo collection and found just the right one. I watched her size it and was amazed at the process.
It proved once again that I’m not yet ready for the 20th century. A few photos were cropped and some were enlarged, but that’s about it, except for the collage on page 133, which was her idea. f

The above link includes Forrest Fenn’s treasure poem written out. It’s always nice to do a quick read through, even if memorized. Thoughts are sparked in different ways and I always find it funny how ideas arise. Whenever I seem to read the poem, new ideas emerge.
And although the following two links are very similar topics, sometimes it’s good to look at the Treasure Hunt Poem and those things Forrest has directly said about it- only. For instance, we are told to not mess with his poem, it contains nine clues which will lead a searcher to the treasure chest, and the clues are in consecutive order in the poem. These are important items to remember. Others are listed, and I plan to update the page within the next few weeks. (if you have thoughts on things to add, please feel free to add in comments below the post)
Treasure Facts deals with those known items involving the hunt. For example; the treasure is not in a mine or is hidden below 5000 feet. Again, reading over these often, can help keep us all on track, and not stray from what is known. I will be updating that page as well, and so any suggestions you might have for what to add will be appreciated in comments below that post too.
