Six Questions with Jdiggins!
1)When did you first hear and learn about the Treasure Hunt?
The whole truth of it is quite a tale. I’ll save your readers and say the short of it is, March 5, 2014 at a “Rockhound” meeting.
2)What inspired you to become involved and begin searching?
There was a sequence of events that just fell into place and I found myself knee deep in a treasure hunt. The most inspiring of which was the challenge of solving the poem.
3)What is your most favorite part about the Treasure Hunt so far?
How it’s become a part of me. I feel it has given me a new outlook on my future, whether or not I succeed at this chase. I’ve made plans beyond the days I once thought I’d never see.
4)What is your least favorite part about the Treasure Hunt so far?
The fighting. But without knowing the bad things in life, we cannot know the good!
5)What is the best or most unique thing you found while searching for Forrest Fenn’s treasure chest?
This is tough. Tangibles have been a black marker, a nickel, a dime, some chewing tobacco, bait, a faded pink bandanna, lots of litter new and old, including and old coke can and mason jar, and there’s more…
As for the intangibles, like I said, I found a new lease on life.
6) What more would you like to say?
I just want to thank Forrest for his amazing chase! And also to thank you, Jenny for your awesome site, and my fellow chasers for all their great ideas and fun personalities. The culmination of everything and everyone is what makes the chase a winning recipe! Yummy!
Thank YOU, Jdiggins! Like you say so perfectly, the Chase gives a ‘new lease on life’! This seems shared by so many. I am so happy to be part and to have met such wonderful people, like yourself, through it all!
Best of Luck will all that you seek and always Treasure the Adventures!
