Featured Question with Forrest Fenn and The Thrill of the Chase
Hi Forrest, Since posting the Six Questions(2/4/2017), I’ve heard many are wondering and so am I; ‘What was the incident you remember when you were just one year old? Would you be willing to share this with us all? Thanks ~jenny
My mom had a rub board on which she scrubbed our dirty clothes. It was before we had a washing machine. That work was done in what we called the “wash room,” and it was outside our house by the garage.
There was a small wooden stool in there also. It was about 7” high, and my mom used it sometimes when hanging wet clothes on the line. One time she saw me struggling to get on the stool so she lifted me on it and I giggled.
I remember all of that very distinctively. f

And one more thing: I know many shared first memories in comments below the Six Questions. They were an added joy to read. Please feel free to share here too. As of now, but I continue to search my memory (and it’s such a treasure to take time to do it- thank you Forrest for inspiring such an activity), one of my first memories is sitting in front of my dad on the tractor seat between his legs. He would often take me with him when he went to the fields and I would just sit there and ride along as he harrowed or whatnot. We kept each other company.
Best of luck with the Thrill of the Chase and all that you seek! Treasure the Adventure!
