    I supposed they'd never really have to divulge the date of recovery to the world. I'd wait until July 1st, then claim... "I found it where ff hid it, right in my own backyard!" That's if I went public at all.

Only the father must be left... I was sitting there for about half an hour, thinking of my boys who are 7 and 13 now and my wife... they‘re still with me, but sitting there on this family grave made me cry like it was them buried there!
    Later I thought... this was one of the many treasures I found in the Chase... a trip into an alternative life where things went wrong... worse... a tragic apocalypse! I talked to my family the same evening and I was filled with love and relieve!
    Go visit this wonderful place if you got the chance! The Gneiss Creek Trail is worth a hike, too, but bring bearspray!
    thanks for sharing that experience. i remember having a similar one there. nothing like Fir Ridge's eloquent stones to make one feel the cold pains of death, and then bountiful nature awaiting just beyond at Gneiss offers immediate warmth and renewal ... and then of course the surrounding BMA's to call mortality right back into question. I found a big patch of brown fur just beneath my favorite tree -- someone else must like it too (looks like an excellent over-sized back scratch) Some beautiful purple and yellow flowers there also. Now I'm thinking ... no, not about death. or treasure. just bears. always bears ... my first "Rockies hike" toting "pepper spray," what I actually carried was "mace" -- the little squirt container wasn't any larger than a lady's tube of lipstick. that'll show them bears! it's a thousand and one wonders i'm not on the knock list. if i had gone out on any of those early adventures, i surely would have died happy and dumb.

    woah, as soon as I saw this I knew the cemetery. there are some beautiful headstones there. also some beautiful trees about 1/4 mile beyond headed toward the park.

    It seems like the LS and FF are “in this together” as far as what happens when found.

    Having occasional cowboy tendencies, I have to sometimes resist the urge to beat the odds, so to speak, like searching with snow on the ground. But, if FF sets a rule, I would never knowingly break it, so it’s June 1 for me.

    I said all that to say that it would not even seem natural to try to recover before then. Maybe not even possible, like ice fishing in the summertime. Just my thoughts...

    What beautiful words. I think that if that were possible I would not still be here on earth.

    It would save me quite some travel expenses... and I‘m sure they‘ve earned it over the last years... why consider them a pariah? More like a cool outlaw perhaps... and definitely still part of the search community!
