As I sit here pondering the past and the experiences I have been blessed to have been a part of over these many years… I find myself thinking of those who have gone to the other side, Steve Shaffer, Jim Phillips, Gale Rhoades, George Thompson, AC Wilkerson just to name a few… and not to mention the many who passed before them, of the Ute Tribe and those who rubbed elbows with them and Caleb Rhodes etc… taking there secrets to the graves intentionally I’m sure… leaving only bread crumbs for those who followed and there will no doubt be some who follows them or tries to.
There are few left who know the secrets and I’d like to think I am one of them. I have been very blessed and fortunate by way of documentation, being in the right place at the right time... I can’t help but think of the events that took place after the passing of those I knew, after their passing several men tried to contact the families with only one thing in mind, to try to acquire their research for their own greedy personal gain… I began to think about the day when my time has come, which I am certain is still a long way off… but ya never know… the last thing I want is for my life’s work to become my family’s burden…
As a result and an effort to somewhat defuse this possibility, I am considering holding monthly meetings open to the public to go over the details of one project at a time, with hopes of finding that new blood in the next generation of true truth seekers those with real intent and pure motive, if you come for the sole purpose of tooting your own horn, or if your motive is not pure, you are cordially invited to stay home.
I invite you to be a part in an effort to resolve that which is unresolved and perhaps connect with those who can further the needs of the research, not just by idea or participation, but financial support, that it may some day help change the lives of some for the better or bring to light that which has been hidden for so long by what ever means.
I have NOT yet decided to do this...I would like to hear your thoughts on this possible monthly meeting. No comments please, you can message me or email.
