Forrest is very knowledgeable about cave material, and I’ve always expected that the chest was in a rock overhang, or cave. Buried would be the next best method.

This has been discussed many times over the years, but I believe it’s not likely that the chest is just sitting out in the open. The sun beating on the bronze chest would create extreme temperatures inside that would melt the hermetic seal on the olive jar.

My only concern with a cave, or even a rock overhang, would be that both of those places attract artifact hunters like a blinking neon sign.The chances of it being found or stumbled upon by chance, or by a non chase participant would be much greater...Just some thoughts.

Maybe the cave/overhang thing was just wishful thinking. That leaves buried. I don’t like that one bit.

IMO I think "weak" describes how you will find the TC. Look at the OE definition of weak and you will see why I say that. It will be "seen" if you are nearby the spot. But, in my trip only, there are 100,000 (more like 1 million, but I didn't count) of these ledges or spots to place the chest into so I don't believe anyone would even suspect a trove was there.
You need to know nearly exactly which of these spots to look in to find the TC.
just saying ss
