On the page where the official order is given, the author writes: "One caveat - the short story The Home Crowd Advantage is obviously set in during the London Olympics but because it was written before the chronology of the series had firmed up it contains a number of anachronisms.
I've learnt to be philosophical about this sort of thing. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The change of scenery was just what he needed. He kicked the pills, his friends say, and found a job as a server at Edelweiss, a kitschy German restaurant.

He lived in his car for a while to save money and started dating Jamie Longworth, a local medical marijuana grower. He often stayed up late after waiting tables, smoking weed and compiling clues on his laptop.
He tracked possible locations for the treasure on maps, homing in on Royal Gorge Park an hour away. He enjoyed the intellectual puzzle of it all. Brown, who had lived in the Gorge. He urged Eric to take precautions. When he told Longworth where he was headed, she urged him to reconsider. Ten days later, Paul received the anonymous call while he was greeting wedding guests. A few days later, he was contacted by detective Sterling Jenkins, a stocky, goateed officer who specialized in marijuana enforcement.
It could be a hoax. Paul Ashby holds a copy of the contract drawn up by his son on the day he disappeared. The document stipulates that Eric will split the treasure among those hunting with him, should it be found. But unlike Bilyeu, who had attended Fenn book events and was immersed in the Searcher community, Eric was unknown to other treasure hunters. He rarely shared his hunches online, and he often went treasure hunting alone. Though she and Eric had grown up in different states, she in Florida and he in Tennessee, the siblings were in touch often.
She then provided a screenshot of a Facebook message that Nies, who had worked with Eric at Edelweiss, had sent her on Saturday, July 8, just hours after Paul got his mystery call, and 10 days after Eric had gone missing. Nies said that she was with Eric and three of her friends that day.
Eric drowned in the river unfortunately. Im sorry to tell you like this, you deserve to know. The note from Nies should have put an end to the sleuthing, but it only seemed to spark new clues and paths to investigate. In that vacuum, and in the heated detective atmosphere of the treasure hunt, rumors flew: It was a fight that landed Eric in the water, a scheme to steal the treasure from Eric and leave him behind. The most vexing question remained: If four people had watched a man disappear underwater, why did they wait 10 days to tell anyone?
That delay stoked its own conspiracies. She pleaded for help in finding her brother.
Albritton and a cousin made the drive from Florida to Colorado in four days. They arrived in Colorado Springs and checked in to a hotel. Albritton cued up Facebook Live as she approached the car, video streaming—just in case anything happened. Heart pounding, she grabbed it and sprinted back to their car. When she flipped the book open, she found a handwritten contract between Eric, Nies, and her friends agreeing to share whatever treasure they might find—51 percent for Eric and 49 percent to be split among the others.
Albritton held the contract with a shaky hand. She reported what she had found to the Colorado Springs detectives. Alarmed, Paul flew to Colorado Springs to search for answers. He met with Jenkins, who took him out to the spot on the Arkansas River where Eric had last been seen. Jenkins told him that two photographers had been taking pictures of whitewater rafters that day and called after witnessing a possible drowning. But there was no way of knowing if the person had been Eric—the victim was unidentified and no body had been found. The people who were with him had been questioned, but Jenkins had not yet reached any conclusions.
Desperate and sleepless, Paul called his brother, an Army specialist, for advice. If no one else could find his son, then Paul wanted to search the rapids himself. A Fremont County coroner later identified the victim as Eric Ashby. After several weeks of investigating—questioning Nies and her friends Jimi Booker and Anthony Mahone, as well as the two photographers who had witnessed the incident—Jenkins and his team pieced together what had happened that day in June.
They set off toward the river in an old green Jaguar sedan, stopping along the way to buy a cheap, two-person raft. They wound along mountain roads to a parking lot near Royal Gorge Park, where a suspension bridge hovers nearly 1, feet above the Arkansas River. As they watched rafts of tourists careen by, Booker told Jenkins, the current roared higher and faster than they had expected.
Sunshine Falls is known for violent Class IV-V rapids, powerful enough to hurl rafters into the choppy water. Eric, who said he had been to the same spot on previous excursions, assured the others that it was still passable. Eric told them he believed the treasure was on the other side of the river. He planned to float across in the raft, retrieve the box, and bring it back. Despite his insistence that he had plenty of experience whitewater rafting, Eric had taken no helmet or life vest.
The rope slipped free from his waist as he was swept away in the fast-moving current. He attempted to make it to the other side but plunged underwater.

When he hit the next set of rapids, known as the Sledgehammer, he went under again. This time he emerged facedown. He was carried away by the current. From their post a short way downstream, the photographers looked on in horror as the body floated by. They frantically called for help. Booker claimed that he and his friends searched along the shore of the river for half an hour, but the water was too violent.
They returned to their car and drove away without waiting for the police to arrive. Booker told me they took off because they knew the photographers had already called for help and felt there was nothing they could do. People watched it happen. On a rainy weekend in March, I attended an event for Eric at the Barn in Townsend, where Paul still works as a concierge. Pictures of Eric hiking and cooking lined a table alongside a box bearing his cremains.
Local country singers performed ballads on the small stage. Jenkins places responsibility on the Searchers. He continues to encourage the treasure hunt. His prediction, of course, will likely only spur more Searchers to return to the wild. With each new death, the stakes of the search grow higher. Fenn continues to urge his followers to avoid putting themselves in life-threatening situations. This article appears in the August issue. Subscribe now.
