So most of us have seen the coordinates on Bill Hastings "The Search for the Zone" website. If you pull it up on google maps, its just off of Lookout Mountain Rd in the outskirts of Spearfish, SD.

 

I did some research on the history of Spearfish and found a Wikipedia page about the Mystery of the Theon Stone;

 

 "The early history of the people mentioned on the stone is limited.[2] Two experienced miners were among the party of seven: William King and Indian Crow.[3] According to the stone, Ezra Kind and his party traveled to the Black Hills in 1833 in search of gold, at which time a treaty prevented the party from entering the area legally.[4] The stone itself was inscribed in 1834 by Ezra Kind after his entire party was killed by Native Americans.[2] Kind himself later died of unknown causes.[1]

On March 14, 1887,[5] Norwegian immigrants and brothers Louis and Ivan Thoen discovered the slab while collecting sandstone on the west face of **Lookout Mountain near his home in Spearfish.**[2] The stone was buried several feet below the surface."

 

I don't know what to make of this, if there is some connection I might be onto. I thought some of you might have some feedback and would find this peculiar. I posted this on Reddit as well.

Could you link me to the discussion? I've searched Reddit for anything refering to Twin Peaks and the Theon Stone with no luck. :/
