I found out about Forrest Fenn in the National Parks Trips news letter, telling people not to bring metal detectors and shovels to the YSNP. Been hooked ever since. Unfortunately my wife doesn’t have the same zeal for the chase as I do. That’s where the Not Obsessed name comes from, she kept telling me that I am obsessed with the hunt, but I told here that I was just very interested. (Well maybe she was right as usual)
My search area has been YSNP and I still like the WY MN area. Made one trip in April 2015 , no GOLD but a lot of treasured time with the grandson. Still keeping up with the blog, but not as closely as before. Maybe another search next summer.
A lot of thanks to Forrest Fenn for giving us something to chase, and Dal and Goofy for all the work on the BEST blog site.
The order of items above is the best order to present each part of the introduction: get the reader's attention, move toward the thesis statement, and then present the thesis statement. The thesis statement usually is most effective as just one sentence at the end of the introduction, so you should avoid presenting the thesis statement as the first sentence of the introduction and should avoid presenting the thesis statement in more than one sentence. (Information about thesis statements is presented on The Thesis Statement Web page.)
Hi Jumoke. Fear of speaking is common. Here are some tips. 1) Expect to be nervous; it’s normal and natural. 2) Practice a lot until you’re comfortable with your talk. The best way to practice is to videotape yourself using a smartphone or webcam, watch the video, and then keep repeating that until you see a good improvement. 3) Put your attention on your audience, rather than on yourself. Start by asking a question and getting a response from the audience, whether from one person or from everyone by asking them to raise their hand. By focusing on your audience, you’ll pay less attention to how you feel. Good luck!
