Welcome to NM, please don't come to Bandelier and attempt to dig up the monument. His hint was that the areas north of Bandelier are in the search area. I think he had to say that because of Dal stating Bandelier is not north of Santa Fe. Please research before you come. There is no big need to beat every other searcher to the area, just because he mentioned it. I fear another Yellowstone ...
I tried exploring Bandelier last fall during the government shut down. It's a beautiful area to marvel gazeSmile
LOL In NM we do because most are coming from the south to Santa Fe. So we hit that border first.

As Fenn mentioned on Richard Sauniers blog, the chest is hidden more than 66,000 links(8.25 miles) north of Santa Fe. It is very easy to delineate this boundary on google earth. If you were to use the southern boundary of the Santa Fe city limits as the point of reference for the 8.25 mile measurement, then Bandelier would be about 11.5 miles north of Santa Fe. With the same city boundary as reference, it doesn't make sense to explore anything south of latitude 35.611071 which would be 8.25 miles north of the southern most boundary of the city of Santa Fe(according to Google maps). As a matter of fact, Bandelier is very close to 7.75 miles north of Fenns house.



I don't think anyone uses the southern boundary of a city when they give directions or measurements, especially when giving measurements in the opposite direction. But it's possible, I suppose.

For what it's worth ... I applied the '66,000 links north of Santa Fe' to Santa Fe County's southern boundary. I'll share one reason (of two) for doing that.

Astree said that the Benchmark Seal (TFTW map) was on Fillmore. If I stamp everything that Forrest says (and everything in TTOTC) with the Benchmark 'fillmore', it leads to interesting conclusions and widens the field of research/search.

By giving only one or two clues in a set and not completing some sentences, ff was actually placing the benchmark/ standard 'fill-more' (fill the missing parts, connects the dots, etc..) on his poem (and related comments) - (IMO).

I got there by seeing the incomplete sentences … but 'benchmark - fill-more' says so much more, so much better.

Thanks Astree.

This is an interesting dimension. I've taken it into count in my search and may have narrowed things down a bit. Not by Borth of Santa Fe exactly, but as a distance from one clue to the next..
I also believe New mexico is the most probable place after studying the poem for some weeks... I read about yellowstone 'tresure find' rules in today's new post, but what about New mexico? If someone finds it in New mexico what are the rules of the New Mexico state if the finder decides to notify the authorities? what percentage is the finders claim? Can anybody here inform us on the rules?

What rules? Dont disregard anything but there will be many variables involved when all is said and done that one cannot anticipate when where or how or what rules are inforced. Likely, the rules/boundaries may need to be redefined once the location of the chest is found. I believe that was said by forrest in some way shape or form quite a while back.
perhaps when you find the treasure, it would be best to keep it a secret and you and Forrest could come up with a way to get around them, like saying the treasure was not really there, there was just a way to contact forrest in that spot you found and then Forrest gave you the chest at his house, even though the chest really was there. some way to reduce the governments control over that box. Whoever finds it better be careful and smart to avoid it being taken away and they get nothing in the end but a story that no one believes.

I fear people who obey laws just because laws are laws; I fear people who obey laws out of fear of being punished. In a sane, just society, laws are superfluous. If finding the treasure chest causes no harm, any and all laws regarding the finding of the treasure chest are of absolutely no concern to me.
it is certainly an issue, managing a treasure find is as difficult as finding the treasure itself. But which of the items did Fenn showed interest to buy back? That also offers another layer of intrigue.
