Ah I really enjoyed that Dave
For some Sunday night diversion
The desert scenery was excellent
And ya know- when he went into
Gila Monument he was in Zuni territory
That could lead us to Coronado
Altho I did see a Phoenix connection
W/ the English author Alan Butler
“The Goddess, The Grail, The Lodge” Phillip Darrell Duppa
(October 9, 1832 – January 30, 1892)
was a pioneer in the settlement of Arizona prior to its statehood.
He named Phoenix after standing at the ancient Hohokam site.
Seeing that another great city could arise from the previous ashes
of an Ancient settlement en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phillip_Darrell_Duppa
What does this have to do with an
English lad visiting North America
You may well ask?
Lord Duppa brought the knowledge to North America
of the mystery of “The Holy Blood, Holy Grail.”
More specifically that of ‘Priory of Sion’
and especially the inscription at Rennes-le-Château.
But this is internet research. So some text may be falsified.
To easy to do that with electronic data.
So its always Best to visit the library!
So one can research as close to
the original sources and text.
Which I plan to do .

Reality show science, reminds me of modern climate science and so much more. Ignore the obvious if it doesn't fit the desired outcome.
Took me about 10 seconds to determine that the "gravestone" was a recent creation, quite possibly from whoever dug the floor of the cave out and stole the artifacts. If it was dug up by artifact thieves, why is it still there? Runes are not something largely unknown, as implied. My son uses runes in his drawing art, his second written language, and it didn't require years of secondary education to figure them out.
Why would an adventurer from the UK bring the iron chisel and hammer with him, but leave all that weight in his pack, only to use it once? This episode, in itself, cured me from any desire to see any of this guys reality shows, entertainment without much real investigation.

The iron chisel was a bit
Well I mean... a bit of a stretch...mostly
Lot of explorers like to include a mystery in their meanderings
It add an element of the unknown
& makes they’re hiking a bit more purposeful.
Really is just boredom, exercise, and being out in nature
I suspect LDM as lot of that & this going on…
