Interesting Newspaper Articles About f...
Alright, against my better judgement, with everyone doing such a great job on their TTOTC YouTube videos, blogs, and setting up chat sites, here's how I will pay it forward to y'all...

If you go to Newspapers.com, they used to (not sure if they still do, so you will have to check on your own) allow you to try their site out for free for two weeks. If you search "Forrest Fenn" from 1930 to 2009 exactly like that in the search box, it will return all of the newspaper articles to download about him that have been digitally transferred over the years prior to the chase. Here are the specific ones I have found and downloaded a few years back, but I'm sure there are more now (hopefully, none of which take you to my spot):

Not sure there is anything there that will help you with finding the chest, but DEFINITELY INTERESTING, and teaches you about the man over the years, IMO.

You missed the Lubbock Avalanche Journal dated Tuesday January 7, 1969. Amazing isn't it? He didn't waste any time drumming up articles about himself. He got home Christmas eve and two weeks later there's a big article about him in the local paper. The thing I don't get is this. I just spent the weekend with some folks from around Lubbock and I used to drive through that way a lot. Other towns around Lubbock are Levelland and Earth. It's flat as the day is long out there. The Lubbock Avalanche???

From Wikipedia: "The Lubbock Avalanche was founded in 1900 by John James Dillard and Thad Tubbs. According to Dillard, the name "Avalanche" was chosen due to his desire that the newspaper surprise the citizens of Lubbock"

I love this thread. Here’s an interesting story that F talks about in Seventeen Dollars a Square Inch.

The missing pieces of the story may be here:

Here’s a pic of the article in case you don’t have a subscription:

Isn't that interesting. Eric was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and had lavish tastes despite his longing for the simple days when America was young. Just as I suspected...what a load of crap. Eric was a fraud too.

Something is off with the math with that story of divorce. This lady is 23, they were married in ‘27, and FF isn’t born until 1930... Was Hinrichs that much his senior??...
...

Yup, just went and checked. Been a while since I’ve had the book.
