Forrest Fenn created the adventure of a lifetime, for the world to solve a poem and hunt down a treasure chest filled with gold and jewels. Hidden somewhere in the Rocky Mountains in one of 4 states.Don Dickens, a truck driver from West Virginia, said he's certain he'd found the spot where Forrest Fenn'ss treasure once was hidden in Yellowstone National Parkby solving the clues in a poem that appeared in Fenn's autobiography, The Thrill of the Chase, and also was published in a second book, Too Far to Walk, in Dickens discovered, like thousands of other treasure hunters, was disappointment.
AP — Don Dickens reached a peak on The Promontory at Yellowstone National Park, certain he would saunter down a few hundred feet and find the pound chest of treasures that Santa Fe author and artifacts collector Forrest Fenn says he hid six years ago, somewhere in the Rocky Mountains.
What Dickens discovered, like thousands of other treasure hunters, was disappointment. The box wasn't there, reported The New Mexican. Dickens, 44, said that, as he and a cousin descended the mountain that day in August, feeling dejected and disillusioned, they came to a conclusion: Fenn must have moved the treasure. But why? Dickens' cousin, Steve Riley, felt his chest begin to cramp. They were sure it was a heart attack.
They later learned he had a severe digestive condition, one more aggravation to add to the day. For most of the tens of thousands of people who have worked to solve a poem purportedly filled with clues to the treasure's whereabouts, and have set out into the wilderness to find the trove, the hunt is a quirky family outing, a one-time adventure, an ongoing hobby or even a dedicated passion that gets them outdoors and "away from the humdrum of their daily regimens," as Fenn put it in a recent email.
For some, however, chasing Fenn's fortune — and fame — has become an obsession that has come with mounting travel costs and enormous health and safety risks. He didn't regret the expense, though he was rattled by Riley's medical troubles, realizing the quest could have had a much darker ending for the pair than the shock of coming up empty-handed. So far, no one has come forward with the treasure in hand, and some are beginning to wonder if it's really out there.
But since the hunt began init has brought international fame to year-old Fenn, a decorated Vietnam War fighter pilot, art dealer and amateur archaeologist with a complicated reputation in the world of antiquities. He has appeared in national publications and on a TV series. His large fan base regularly inundates him with letters and emails. One of his favorites is from an 8-year-old girl, who wrote, "Mr.
Fenn, if I find the treasure do I have to share it with my brother? Dozens of search enthusiasts gathered in Santa Fe in June for a Fennboree to honor him and share stories of what some call a life-changing journey.
Over the years, Fenn has regularly corresponded with fans, but he recently announced that, on doctor's orders, he would be scaling back on blog posts, emails and other activities related to the search. The statement drew a host of messages from well-wishers. Fenn, who has a passion for antiquities, has drawn criticism from some in the archaeological community for his amateur pursuits in the field.What is This Blog About?
I am hoping we can share our adventures and ideas because, as Forrest has pointed out, the thrill is in the chase not in the capture. Who is Forrest Fenn?
In a nutshell, Forrest Fenn lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico where he started an art gallery, raised a family, collects artifacts, writes books and made a fortune. For instance, an ancient Aztec golden amulet is worth much more than the current value of its weight in gold because it is unique, unusual, sought after, special, etc. Maybe…Forrest is not a traditional thinker tied to conventional ways of getting things done.
If he were, his life would be dull, commonplace, mundane, boring. Instead, his life has been anything but humdrum. He has made his fortune and his reputation by thinking, creating and trading well beyond the bell curve.
In my humble opinion he looks forward to capable individuals out there trying to out-think him and locate his treasure. Its a contest for him. Forrest versus the rest of the world and the winner gets to keep a million dollars. To meet Forrest is to stand in the presence of a very smart, competent and competitive fellow.

There are also additional hints and clues Forrest has handed out since the hunt began back in I hope this blog will become a source of information about the treasure and where you can begin your search.
There are plenty of speculators, naysayers and misinformed individuals out there including reporters and journalists who have added inaccuracy and conjecture to the trove of hints and clues floating around out in the ether.
This is inevitable. As the story is passed from person to person it begins to grow and be embellished and before you know it the facts are hard to find. In truth, what Forrest has said over and over is that only the poem and what he has written in the book contain honest hints and clues that will lead to the treasure…ignore the words that others have put in his mouth.

Im sorry, but who do you think you are to make a self acclaimed notification like that? That's not your place. Not you - him. And if you really listen to FF when he speaks then you would know he was actually asked, how will the world know when the chest has been found and the search is over? And his reply was, They will know. That being said, FF was smart enough to put all this together, do you think he would just leave loose ends?
Highly doubtful. He has a plan arranged for this too. Its a 3 Million dollar find. And based off his intelligence, his plan for notifying the chest being found will carry over after his death even. One thing I can say im very certain on, is that his plan to notify this information does not in any way involve YOU being the voice of it.Moment I set foot on it, I was gone.

Because, if you actually solve his poem, your reward is not a treasure chest — no, your prize instead is a mea culpa from the author himself. So obvious, in fact, that all you have to do is take a good, hard look at a single lonely line in his poem.
This phrase is the most obscure in the entire piece, as well as the clue most Fenn hunters gloss over, a product of its intentionally confusing design. So why did he do it? Angry social and environmental activism is likely the motive beyond gonzo book sales. Yet this highlights why I feel compelled to reveal his secret with urgency: people have perished looking, essentially, for one word.
Yes, instead of the rich jubilance of discovery, I have to inform others that they, like me, were skamt in a grand scam. Other Offers Already a subscriber? Sign In.
