    Default On the hunt for a $2 million treasure

    hidden By Forrest Fenn

    so far no official website for the hunt,just info posted by Gadi Schwartz, and a blog
    So far, I have found two blogs that are also helpful.
    The first is Fenn's blog at http://www.oldsantafetradingoco.com/blog/
    The second is written by a treasure hunter named Dal Neitzel that I tagged along with on a hunt in Red River. THRILL OF THE CHASE
    Dal Neitzel is the fellow that is in the part 2 video and hunted at the red river

    2mill sounds good to me,even though im about 2k from the mts,some info from the article

    Before we begin, don’t think of this as a news article.

    Think of this as a treasure hunting resource page, brought to you by a reporter who may have spent a little too much time trying to figure out where Forrest Fenn’s treasure is hidden.

    And keep in mind, by proceeding any further you are agreeing to try and match your wits against a very sharp 81-year old art collector who is always a couple steps ahead.

    The first thing you are going to need is a treasure map, which in this case is a poem with clues. We’ve put that at the bottom of the page and you might want to scroll down and read it so you know what you are getting into. The author says there are nine clues contained in the text so look close.

    Secondly – you need to know what’s inside the ancient, bronze, Romanesque lockbox.

    This is a list of just some of what is inside the lockbox that alone cost over $20,000. Fenn says there is over 20 troy pounds of gold, a 17th century Spanish ring with a large emerald, a bracelet with 254 rubies, six emeralds, two sapphires, and a bunch of small diamonds, a historic bracelet with round turquoise beads, a 2,000 year old necklace from Columbia and a 20,000 word autobiography by Forrest Fenn wax sealed in an olive jar.

    Third, you need proof that this isn’t a scam, so consider this. Fenn says all his books have been donated to Collected Works in Santa Fe which is the only bookstore that sells them. He says he doesn’t make a “penny off the deal.” Fenn also says 10 percent of all the proceeds go to help fight cancer.

    Default the poem by Forrest Fenn

    There is one piece of consistent advice Fenn seems to offer all treasure hunters. Fenn says if you get his book, read the poem first, then read the book, then read the poem again, and use the book to unlock the clues.

    Fortunately for those who have stumbled across this resource page, I think I have found a lot more clues than just the nine contained in the poem and I am not in the business of keeping secrets. (My wife literally just called me after my live shot and told me I had given too much away.)

    But in the spirit of full disclosure… and under the condition that anyone reading this that goes on to find the treasure, owes me lunch... and maybe that turquoise bracelet, I will share those clues with you in this little checklist that I made for my wife and I while we treasure hunt in our spare time.

    Trust me, this stuff is helpful when you start trying to narrow down locations.

    the poem 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 it's no place for the meek,
    The end is ever drawing nigh;
    There'll be no paddle up your creek,
    Just heavy loads and water high.

    If you've 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,
    I've done it tired and now I'm 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.

    cw:

    Did Forrest say it is located in New Mexico or is he just keeping the general locale secret as well?

    I am interested in the hunt just for fun... I'm not serious about it either.

    forrest has only said its not in toledo,and not in nevada,and its north of santa fe,and alaska is north,i think that was in one of the videos, north of santa fe covers a lot of
    ground.. lol
    i read or heard in one of the many links to this hunt,that you find the info from the poem in the book
    or V&V,ive decide to do it, 2mill$ is just to tempting,even though the hidden treasure is prob 2k or
    more from me,on the resource pg,fenn,says no one has said they found the treasure,and hopes someone
    would say they found it,though that is not a requirement
    the thing with declaring that much money,is that tax payment for capital gains,i guess you could
    find it and send a pic of it as claimed anonymously,and try to sell it off in secret,if you want to
    avoid the taxes,i would just pay the tax,and be done with it
    im going to try and post img of what gadi knows from the kob news story
    hope it works this time

    links to the 2mil$ hunt
    buy the book,whoa its a 35$ hardcover,money goes to cancer and the santa fe art gallery

    Initially, I didn't want to drop $35 for a hunt that would likely require (just my guess) quite a bit of remote travel. Maybe I'll try it. Incidentally, yesterday at the bookstore I picked up A Treasure's Trove on clearance for a buck. I'm relatively new to the armchair hunting, so I wasn't around for the ATT hunt. There are 36000 posts on Tweleve, so it must have been pretty exciting around here! All I'd heard about this Stadther guy was the bad stuff about his sequel gone bad, but that first hunt with all the interest looked fun. Guess it's just hard to build momentum.

    pretty fascinating, it sounds like this is a case where you will not have it pinpointed until you get there - but do the clues at least allow one to get close (ie, you'll definitely know the state, then a sub-region, on down to a square mile). Otherwise ... well, it's a needle in a haystack. As all hunts that appear to involve 'interpretation' have shown, it's very easy to construct a very rational 'solution' to any spot on the planet. I hope there's a method to the madness.
