    Yeah, I had planned on camping up there this weekend, but its expected to snow and rain...i guess i could have "braved the cold"...but my family would have stayed home. Gotta use the buddy system when out in the wood :P

    Interesting theory but he told The Daily Beast that it was left unlocked. The mention of "Title" in the last verse might refer to something else though. Something that you have to redeem to get an additional reward. Although he's hoping to be dead when it's found...

    Idk about the dead part from what I hear he will be releasing another clue each month on the today show (at least that's what I've heard) although these clues might be as helpful as 300 miles west of Toledo.

    I think its a treasure story. What I have found about treasure storys, are they are just storys. I think there was some thought put into this. I know friends who are searching for this treasure. I have to admit, even though I feel in my heart its a plea for some attention. Im going to go and see for myself. You can bet, at least a few folks know the area and has walked over the spot. Lets hope they aren't searching too. My hats off to Mr. Fenn, I hope he is not laughing at all of us now as we spin our wheels lol.
    Life is too short to be serious all the time. So if you cant laugh at yourself, call me....I'll laugh at you.

    I can't always go out metal detecting, but when I do, I swing a F75.

    Just out of curiosity, how many folks on this thread have a spot in mind? I ask because I get the feeling we have all bent the poem in our favor somehow. Me included! This is the curse of treasure hunting. I guess I'm getting irritated. HaHa. May be time to take a week off from it.

    I believe this is the case -- he's mentioned in him memoir that there is a key on display at the bookstore in Santa Fe. GPS unlikely since the box has been out there for a few years.

    I think it's close enough to his home that he can drive by and see if it's still there, probably not able to see the treasure, but beable to tell if the suroundings have been disturbed.

    He says he doesn't go back to the spot as it would attract tons of attention, but I do agree he can drive there I'd say maybe an 8-9 hour round trip to and from his house

    Casa Marron = house brown
    What a thing to say on your first post. But I have thought this...Mr Fenn is getting back at the Gov for their crap against him...so now they thousands of people digging out there. LOL

    I lol'd. Well, at least someone would go out with a bang. I'm more afraid of a Mexican standoff.

    Fenn

    I had posted this on another website but also fits into this conversation.


    Where the Treasure Lies
    By Forrest Fenn

    As I have gone alone in there
    And with my treasures bold,
    I can keep my secret where,
    And hint of riches new and old.

    Begin it where warm waters halt
    And take it in the canyon down,
    Not far, but too far to walk,
    Put in below the home of Brown.

    From there itís no place for the meek,
    The end is ever drawing nigh;
    Thereíll be no paddle up your creek,
    Just heavy loads and water high.

    If youíve been wise and found the blaze,
    Look quickly down, your quest to cease,
    But tarry scant with marvel gaze,
    Just take the chest and go in peace.

    So why is it that I must go
    And leave my trove for all to seek?
    The answers I already know,
    Iíve done it tired, and now Iím weak.

    So hear me all and listen good,
    Your effort will be worth the cold.
    If you are brave and in the wood
    I give you title to the gold.

    OK so now that we have the poem lets look at what it says below the home of brown, Sierra Negra (New Mexico) witch could be translated as dark mountain but if you have a Portuges or Spanish background you are referencing a native american skin color, Negra does not always mean black but can be used to describe any dark skin such as brown.

    Begin it where warm waters halt (Abiquiu Lake In new Mexico)

    The next is FOUND THE BLAZE, CHAMA RIVER (New Mexico), CHAMA in Portuges translate to blaze,fire and flame.

    Thereíll be no paddle up your creek,
    Just heavy loads and water high.

    This reference is that the Chama River flows down hill no paddles needed and heavy loads and water high is white water with some drop-offs.

    If youíve been wise and found the blaze,

    The (you"ve) lol there's a V shaped bend on the CHAMA RIVER.

    From there it’s no place for the meek,

    Look quickly down, your quest to cease,
    But tarry scant with marvel gaze,

    one its New Mexico
    Home of Brown = Sierra Negra
    Blaze = Chama also means blaze
    its near a major road easy transport
    Abiquiu lake is wear snow or ice melt would end up warm waters
    the chama river travels down hill no paddles and water high - white water.

    p.s. look at the first pic all within 10 miles
