I'm married to a T.V. star!

Too much to talk about today. Three blog over load ahead!

I don't know if you remember or knew that back in May Stuart and our good friend Doc Shaffer were hired to film a National Geographic show on the search for gold. Doc has been involved in Spanish markings and gold treasures for most of his adult life. He got Stuart interested in it just after they met. The film was to depict that they pack in by horseback. This filming took place in the Unita's at a stongly suspected spanish gold stash. Here's Stuart leading some of the members of the troop. Of course you won't be seeing any of these fences or speed limit signs because they're "out in the wilderness of Utah."

Here they are setting up to film a spot riding the horses over a rocky ridge. Notice the 4-wheeler, you won't see that in the wilderness!

Just horses, this picture was taken northeast from the gold hole. It was a long hard "horseback" ride.

Remember the 4-wheelers aren't really here, although there is a road for 4-wheelers right up to the gold hole. Stuart has his gun on his lap and ready to use because there was fresh signs of cougars everywhere. I just think he had "kill somethin" fever on his mind!

Finally there were lots of interviews with Doc and a couple that took place at night around the campfire with the whole crew. They don't know all that will be aired in the final cut, but it sounds like it will be a very interesting show to watch.

This is a picture of the gold hole that they went down into to locate the gold treasure.

The show they filmed is titled "Secret History of Gold" and will air this Tuesday, the 25th of November at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time. So I think this will show here on the National Geographic channel at 8:00 p.m. Mountain Standard time. On Spanish Fork Cable it is channel 40. Check an hour before and after this time just in case we have missed figured it. Watch the program and see what they find on their treasure hunt. Look for my t.v. movie star husband in his 15 seconds of fame.
