Waiting...waiting...waiting... Smile
I think the chest is in New Mexico, because "all" of the factual information that can be gotten out of the poem, references actual places in New Mexico, 'by Name'. I think this is a good place to apply the 'a bird in the hand, is worth two in the bush' adage.
regarding research...



If it was as simple as finding landmarks I think it would of been found by now. I believe research is necessary because of the Literature chapter in the TTOTC book. He went to Borders bookstore twice. He took 2 trips to hide the treasure and chest. He went to the exact spot in the bookstore. His poem if followed precisely will lead right to the chest (exact spot). The chapter is a metaphor for hiding the chest. I think researching in a bookstore or online is a part of finding the chest. (I am leaning toward the thought that the "word that is key" when you recognize it has to researched to find the context of the poem and how to decipher the clues.) Also if you have the book look at the measurements of the book he finds. (pretty close to the chest)I believe this chapter is one of the subtle clues sprinkled into the book. When he read one of the books he throws it into the trash on top of a Time Magazine. If this is the day after Salainger died like he says then we know what TIME magazine was in the trash right? Could that particular issue be a clue? If you research the issue of Time magazine from that time period guess who is interviewed in it? Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones) - one of the most famous treasure hunters in history. The other possibilty is the name of the magazine itself is the clue. TIME! go back in time and research history.



something to think about.... (if someone wants to start a post on that chapter in the book I would like to share thoughts) Smile

Hey, cut it out fellas...



<b>@illinoisghost has a better chance than ANY of US, sitting in front of our Keyboards today... and he PLANNED for GREAT WEATHER too it appears...</b> 8O



Hey, what else does he know... Good Weather, Good Plan, uh oh... 8-)



None of us are any different... you've been in the field, <b>everyone goes in every single time knowing "exactly" where the chest "is"... or at the very least, where it "was"...</b>



...( otherwise why go there ? )

I just wanted to know so I can concentrate on another project. If he finds it Applause! and I have some extra search money that I have not wasted. It may be enough for a Big Mac meal... even supersized.
<b>Seeker</b>, why don't you work on another project anyway? I always come up with my best ideas when I'm working on stuff unrelated.



I actually think Mr. Fenn's chest is in New Mexico or Colorado. Colorado is not far from Santa Fe at all. You can check distances and estimated times of arrival on Google Maps. Also, when I look at a map, I ignore the borders because where he's telling you to go <i>could</i> pass through both states.



Mr. Fenn was in the military and he still seems very active today, especially with his project at San Lazaro. What that says to me is that he probably still wakes up early - get all the hard work done during the cool of the morning. He could have easily have driven to Colorado from Santa Fe before the hottest part of the day if he woke up at 5am. He could have woken up earlier (as long as his wife didn't get suspicious) and gotten to his destination before crowds of people showed up.

See... ?
Returned home, empty handed... And had another great trip . glad all the snow is gone. was getting tired of searching in the snow. I just know this is the location . The poem fits every aspect of the poem and book. I just do not have enough time to keep searching, damn job keeps getting in the way. Lol... I believe it's buried in the spot i searched but my metal detector found everything but the chest and I use a Garrett AT gold, I started thinking when FF talks about the bells and mentions burying them he's referring to burying the chest 3 feet deep so a metal detector can't find it. I even ran into another gentlemen searching the same area, we talked a while and both have the same findings of this place. Originally I discovered some coordinates that ff had given and then discovered he actually tells the location matching the coordinates. I have made eight trips to this place alone and a couple to Cimmeron.

AWESOME, glad you made it home safe. ( No doubt as I can SEE you did some GOOD PLANNING to miss the snow, as it comes & goes this time of year )



Did you train, drive or fly from Illinois ?



Planes, Trains, or Automobiles... Big Grin



Meeting another Searcher... what did he say about your METAL DETECTOR... Did the OTHER SEARCHER have a metal detector too ? 8O
