SUBMITTED JUNE, 2017 by Forrest When I said the treasure was not hidden in Utah or Idaho it has been my plan to not narrow the search area further. But in the light of a recent accident, and in the interest of safety, I feel it necessary to alter that plan. The treasure chest is…

Riddle Me This

Screen shot 2014-10-06 at 8.20.42 PM Is the poem a riddle?  Not a classic Who am I or What am I, but Where am I?

 In which case, the first stanza would say something like I, the chest, went in there empty and then I went in there filled.  Forrest Fenn's Treasure Chest

Which raises the next question—the critical point of it all—in There, aka the Secret Where.

If Forrest wrote the poem as if it was a classic riddle, he might have imagined himself as the box personified and given clues accordingly.  Does this hold up? Screen shot 2014-10-06 at 8.19.41 PM

So, if the bronze chest is speaking to you, (no, I haven’t gone ‘um die ecke’, not yet anyway), and says “Take it in the canyon down”, “it” can’t be the chest, right? Or, then again, “take it”  might mean carry the chest .  Different train of thought….Screen shot 2014-10-06 at 8.20.28 PM

Where to begin?

Where did Forrest begin when he wrote the poem?  With the first clue, or the ninth?

“I knew all along where I wanted to hide the treasure so I didn’t need a map or any information to write the poem. Everything was in my head. It took me a while to get the wording exactly how I wanted it.  Counting the clues and hiding the chest came later. It is not likely that anyone will find it without following the clues, at least in their mind.”                                                                  Forrest Fenn 

 

{So, in my mind, it sounds like it’s possible to solve this treasure hunt from a distance, which is good news for people in the Midwest, or Europe, or any other of the xxx countries you visitors are from.)  

Also,  maybe the number of clues isn’t so important??  I don’t know.}IMG_0106
