I know that this may be hard for some people to swallow, just take it with a glass of juice.
If you are beginning to look for Fenn’s treasure in the Rockies, good luck. I would love to point out a couple of things. If you have immersed yourself in thinking that he has hidden secret codes, numerology, GPS coordinates, astrology or any other off the wall meanings somewhere, keep thinking that. You’ll never find it.
The answers are in the poem. Yes, he put clues in his book, The Thrill of the Chase, it was in his stories. You can take your super powered magnifying glass, and scour every photo in the book. All you will find are larger pictures.
I’ve had dozens of emails with individuals giving me gps coordinates as to where the treasure is and if I would look for them. My question was always the same.”How does that work out for the poem?”. The response would be similar to, “he was hinting of coordinates and altitude. Just look”. I wouldn’t waste my time.
If through research, you can’t make the poem work right in your solve, plain and simple, it won’t work. Just by assuming a location is the home of Brown, what about the rest? You think you found Brown and now figure out the rest when you get there? Save your money unless you live right near your spot, or you have unlimited resources.
Or how about the Blaze? You think it’s a waterfall with the sun shining on it at noon? A big owl in a tree? His blaze is his personal trail that he marked along the way. You will know it when you see it.
Okay. So what if you solve the poem, find his blaze, and the chest is gone? I guess someone found it and didn’t tell. I believe that some individuals can keep a secret!!
Good luck.. Keep searching.
Haha. Come on guys stop the email. Share your thoughts. Not everyone is a critic.
