But I completely understand given how the current season of The Curse of Oak Island has gone so far. The season opened with the tragic news that Craig Tester's teenage son Drake passed away. Rick Lagina was diagnosed with Lyme's disease. And the Money Pit appears to have been found. Lots to digest. Lots more to come.
I sent this interview request to Rick and Marty immediately after the season premiere, as I originally planned to, with very mixed feelings. I am a parent. I cried when we all learned about Drake's death. Yet, the Fellowship (as Marty calls them) was on the Island continuing the hunt, and what I was watching had actually happened many months earlier. Still, I almost didn't send it. I received a reply back stating the request was forwarded to the History Chanel. And that's where is stands and will likely continue to stand. But! You never know. So here's the interview I imagines before the start of the season. As you can imagine, I would make changes if a chance to secure the interview happened. read and enjoy the interview which one day will happen!
1. Regarding Dan Blankenship and Fred Nolan. These men, and their families to be fair, poured their lives into the uncovering the past of Oak Island. The scope of their work cannot be understated. Is there a lesson or example to take away from their efforts, and if so what is it?
3. You were inspired by an article. Kids today have several seasons of television plus the well of the internet to draw from. What examples might you have set for future generations of mystery seekers and delvers into the past?
