(Re–(Updated) Clues Blues

Forrest Fenn's Treasure Chest

Forrest Fenn’s Treasure Ches

{Now scheduled for Friday, June 28th at 0505 Fenn Time}

For those of you not familiar with the Chase,  Forrest Fenn has been giving out one new clue a month on the Today Show.  It was scheduled for June 17th but got postponed.  Not for the first time.  Last month they made him get up at 3 something in the morning two days in a row.  “Truck trouble,” they claimed.  (Although I suspect the crew was out searching for the treasure on the extra day.)  It’s now scheduled for June 27th (Not the 28th)according to Stephanie (What’s A Blaze) at Chasechat.

So far the clues have been:

  • helpful.  Like don’t dig up old outhouses (people apparently thought that’s what “putting in below the home of Brown” meant.  Not what came to my mind.
  • common sense.  Like, don’t dig up a cemetery.  Again, not something that crossed my mind.
  • vague/general.  Like, it’s above 5000 feet.  Not a surprise since he said it was in the Rocky Mountains.

Rocky Mountains from a height.

Actually, I  don’t mind the generality of the extra hints. I don’t want to hear that it’s been found already.  I still plan to head West as soon as we get the chance.  I say we.  I’m waiting on my husband to clear his schedule.  He’s mildly amused by my new hobby.  Also, I haven’t exactly figured out the poem yet….

Forrest Fenn says all one needs is the poem, which is in the book.

Meanwhile, enjoy the Thrill of the Chase as you search/seek/solve/obsess …..
