    Default revisiting Chicago and The Secret on Expedition Unknown

    More media exposure for The Secret, this time from Josh Gates and "Expedition Unknown" on the Travel Channel. They are starting a new season tonight (Wed. 27th Dec.) but airing the episodes out of production order. The one we're interested should air on January 17th.

    So, this one episode of a minor television show certainly brought more people into the hunt (after all these decades). The discussion was lively over on the Quest4Treasure forum for several months. However, when I tried to load the site today, the server could not be found. Neither the forum nor the main info pages will load for me. This might just be a problem with the DNS record, or it could be a server failure. (The domain registration was last updated 30-Jun-2017). I hope we didn't break Mark Parry!

    Default Quest4Treasure temporarily offline

    I have an update on the state of Q4T
    Hi
    The web host had a drive array failure. They have replaced the disks but have installed later software which has meant a standard restore would not work. They are working through all of their database driven websites and hopefully we should be back up soon.

    The phpBB forum on Q4T is working again. Your old bookmarks might no longer work. I suggest navigating first to their home page, then clicking on the link to Bulletin Board.

    I am unable to log in over there. Same username, same email. Very frustrating as I cannot view anything in the forums.

    bumping thread for a new episode.

    this Wednesday, October 2nd, on Discovery Channel,
    Josh Gates returns for a follow-up in "Cracking The Secret":
    Josh Gates is on a nation-wide treasure hunt to solve a mystery no one has cracked for 40 years: The Secret. Josh travels coast-to-coast and back in time using cutting-edge augmented reality and tapping into a network of obsessed Secret detectives.
    The original episode aired in January 2018 and can be viewed online at
    Discovery.com
    Listed as {Season 5 Episode 4} it appears to be viewable for free, but marked as expiring soon. (It runs in my older Firefox browser, despite a warning which tells me to enable DRM but i ignore it and the video runs anyway.)

    DVR alert for this Wednesday, October 2nd: Another chance to watch the original episode!
    Check your local schedule for the Discovery channel, but it looks like they are re-airing the original "The Secret" episode of "Expedition Unknown" in the timeslot two hours ahead of the new ep. (For east/west coasts, this will be 7:00pm & 9:00pm)

    TONIGHT (Saturday, October 12) the Discovery Channel is airing "A Secret Revealed" which is really just the two previously-aired hours about our hunt repackaged in their enhanced "Expedition Unknown: Rediscovered" entry.

    TONIGHT (Saturday, November 9th) the Discovery Channel is airing a 3-hour block entitled "Beyond The Secret" which is really just the three previously-aired hours about the hunt, including the most recent Boston find.

    Hopefully, everyone who watched the show thought to record for later review. My congratulations to the TH'ers who spent the untold hours tracking the Boston casque to conclusion. Several new avenues of thought were expressed, and should help my in the tracking and (hopefully) discovery of the casque hidden nearest to me ...
