    Forrest Fenn's treasure

    haven't seen a thread on this.... Anyone interested in it? I've done some cursory research and would like to share. The distance precludes me from searching, but would like to help.

    Forrest lives in New Mexico and claims he buried it in the mountains north of Santa Fe. I'm in Iowa and am planning a SD excursion, so New Mexico isn't happenin' for me. I'll share my thoughts privately, tho.

    I forgot to add a brief synopsis.

    I think the old fart is still kickin. No report of it bein' found. But, then, who would tell anybody?

    If I lived in Santa Fe, I would consider spending some time on finding this cache.

    The clues can be interpreted in many different ways. Home of Brown could be a favorite brown trout fly fishing river or creek. But it could be the Brown Ranch, or something else. Are the warm waters a geothermic mineral springs? Is Yellowstone (Yellow Stone) a good clue?

    The treasure is not buried. It is in a cave, cleft, or perhaps in the water below the blaze (mark on a landmark? trail? arrow or initials on a tree?)

    I see the book has taken a healthy increase in price. There are a couple of them for sale on Amazon at around $135.

    HI Markd,
    I would have thought that a lot more Treasure Hunters here on Treasurenet would be out after this one! I have solved some of the clues from the poem and from his book.

    I have already made a ground search and feel that I am getting close to the right area. ( yeah...that's what everybody thinks!) I will be out in the area frequently.

    The only way to know you have "some of the clues" solved is to walk to your car with the box. "home of Brown" is key, obviously, and needs to be interpreted a certain way. Happy hunting out there. Would love to hear interpretations you have.

    Not to be negative but it is probably a hoax just to sell the books. The guy had to be broke from his extended dig.

    Fair enough, he apparently lives lavishly and has a good story.

    But a true artist/art lover would never leave "pre-Columbian gold animal figures, a Spanish 17th century gold-and-emerald ring and an important bracelet with turquoise beads excavated in 1898 from Mesa Verde" out in the desert with the possibility of it being melt down by a ya-hoo wandering the desert. He would leave those to his kids or a museum. Now if he just left bullion I might be inclined to go for his story. just MHO of course

    My guess is that the heirs get the millions worth of artifacts in his office. He wants to be part of history. Let's let him. His ego, his loot, his choice.

    I will agree with you...his loot.

    And anyway he is probably of Spanish or Portuguese descent in which tradition requires that all pre-columbian figurines/jewelry be melt down prior to sale.

    Forrest is a different breed of cat. An enigma at the least.

    I do know, that if someone finds the box, he'd like the silver bracelet back. He regrets putting it in there.
