In the summer of 2009, a new seminar by Earth-Keeper was being held in the beautiful town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
We were in meetings during the majority of the time, but a side trip to Yellowstone was offered and I decided to be on one of the tour buses along with other attendees from the seminar. The buses was packed.
My seat just happened to be the one behind Robert and Sue Stinson. There were so many cars and bears on the road between Jackson Hole and Yellowstone, that we were slow in making our way to the center of the Park.
There was plenty of time to chat with everybody on the bus. That is when the Stinsons began to tell me about the launching of their new web-based television or free streaming network called The Eclipse Channel.
The concept was exciting but I was still behind the learning curve of how the creation of a internet television channel was put together. I listened intently while Bob beamed with enthusiasm and was charged with energy to get the network launched as soon as possible.
The concept was to have entertainment, movies, talks, lectures, and videos of inspirational material offered to viewers 24 hours a day.
We must have been in deep discussion for almost two hours as we traveled on that swaying bus traveling through mountain passes and curved roads.
The conversation turned to my deep interest of the mysterious selenite crystal caves found in Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico in 2000.
For years, I had traveled around the United States and parts of the world sharing my interest, experience and knowledge of geology, gemology and exploration of the giant selenite crystal caves. My desire was to continue my on-going research, write a book, present images and give lectures to audiences world-wide.
We finally reached our destination at Yellowstone and we went our separate ways. We didn’t sit on the same bus returning to Jackson Hole but we did exchange business cards and there was a promise to contact me in the near future.
I didn’t know it then, but a plan was beginning to take shape in Robert Stinson’s mind. I believed that plan forming was with good intentions.
