When I lived in the Rockies I printed out dozens of the maps from TFTW and would give them out to friends and co-workers for fun. Some where so amazed by what looked like a treasure map they where willing to make deals just for a copy. First I stated low, 10% of what they find. Then I used my skills to see how much I could get from then (all of this for fun, I would haggle at Wal-Mart if they would let me) I moved up and up until I got someone to agree for 25% of there take. Not all were willing to deal and they got a map after the negotiation regardless of the deal. Other times I would leave the map in places I know people would find them like post offices, sidewalks, geocaches, old abandon attics or basements, and restrooms. Often I think of the adventures some may of had that found a map of Fenn’s that left behind or even maybe the Finder might be one of them. All of these were fun adventures I had without even searching for the chest.

Best to sell a book on how to sell books about the treasure. Works well in real estate. Wanna start a "Seminar on how to find the fenn treasure" coming soon to an event near you. Just playing with ya!

The best things in life are free. But sometimes, you get what you pay for.
