    "This hunt is getting so old..." at 155 pages, I just assumed it would have its own forum by now. I wanted to post about a documentary, and didn't know how to find info here about whether or not it was already discussed. It took me a while to find this thread! (And now I'm not going back to read it all to find out.)

    A friend linked me to this short film and article.
    Searching for a $2 Million Treasure Chest of Gold and Gems Hidden by Eccentric Author Forrest Fenn
    (I wish Tweleve would leave clickable URLs visible) www laughingsquid.com/searching-for-a-2-million-treasure-chest-of-gold-and-gems-hidden-by-eccentric-author-forrest-fenn/

    I'm not sure where other forums might be discussing this. I know of a blog on Wordpress, but that is also difficult to navigate. I'll let someone here decide if it needs to be posted elsewhere.

    What if it were a series of 9 word-trick Sentences?


    My thoughts on the first clues in the first Sentence/verse:


    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.


    So -- 1 appearance of the letters "RE" in "theRE"
    2 -- in "tREasuREs"
    and 1+1 in "secREt" and "wheRE"


    So the first letters of the site we are looking for might be "RE" from Sentence/Clue 1 -- taken and expected to be read in that order.


    And maybe the other Sentence Clues sort of follow the same trick-logic until a word is spelled out.
    FANDANGO! (Maybe...)

    MDC-
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the vlogs. They are much fun and thought provoking, even if not working on the hunts. It made me think of something though that I had wondered about the Thrill of the Chase book. The 'photo' of Skippy in his car is clearly photoshopped. I assume it is just a tribute to his brother rather than a hint, hence the caption that the grin is real (not the car which is different than the one in the photo below). Any thoughts on if it could be a hint or why it was included? I don't think any other photos seemed doctored.

    PS- 152,000 views of this thread but no own forum.

    He sounds sharp as ever in that podcast. He speaks so comfortably about his memories that I think he has a well worked "script" of how to share his story without divulging anything relating to the treasure on accident. He clearly has overlap with his book written stories, again following the script. Saying he hasn't been to W. Yellowstone since the 50's is suspicious.

    This is one of the concerns I've had about Forrest's participation. For those who have worked to the point of being convinced it's not in W. Yellowstone, had an advantage over those who were still looking there.

    Now, that advantage is gone.
