I would like to submit this question:
Dear Mr. Fenn,
I read on a blog that you said/wrote the home of Brown in your poem was not a person’s name. Is that true; is Brown in your poem NOT a person’s name or surname? I cannot seem to locate the quote anywhere.
I have two questions for Mr. Fenn... one which I am pretty sure he won't answer and another that will seem rather strange, but that he might answer. So, here goes ...
#1 -- He has said that the treasure cannot be seen from Google Earth, which probably indicates that the satellite images are simply too low resolution for something that small to be seen. My question is, if you could somehow hover in mid-air say 20 or 30 feet above it, would you be able to see it then?
#2 -- I believe you (FF) were born after 1933 when Prohibition ended, but did you ever take an interest in it (historically or archaeologically)?

I have one more question (just thought of this) ... It has been claimed that you said that the treasure is at least 8.25 miles north of Santa Fe. Did you actually say that or is that someone's assumption? If you did say it, I am thinking that is so precise it makes me wonder how you measure the distance -- from the official center of town or from the northernmost border of the city limits?

Thank you Jenny!
I would be thrilled if he answered one of my questions. I would be all wrapped up in a tickle.
Mr. Fenn in your book TTOTC several of the sketches by your artist chose Norman Rockwell and Mr. Rockwell had met Hiram Brown and Herbert Huse Bigelow. The Silver Spur Cafe in W. Yellowstone gave out matchbooks advertising their cafe and a wonderful painting of two mountain men walking up a steep hill with their horses up the mountain. Do you know how I can find the artist of the painting? Thank you, DrPepperWood

Thanks for the Questions all.... I will be forwarding a few at a time to Forrest, and he can then choose what, when, or if he answers. So just keep them coming, and I will share any he answers on MW (will announce it here and other MW channels).
Thanks for being part of the MW Community! You make it great!
In TTOTC you included just one color photo, which is of your wife Peggy Jean. I think this might be intentional in order to communicate to readers how very special she is to you, but is there another reason?
