A bold statement, but I'll make it anyway...

Oh, and Forrest does state that the chest is not at the precise location of the solve. You must walk "several" steps to the chest. He also has intimated in interviews that you must look for the chest, that it won't be easy, but that you can find it...

I am suspecting 99 May be correct about it NOT being in the exact spot, although Forrest has said a searcher with the solve could walk right straight up to it. 99, could you provide a quote to back up your idea of it not being at the exact solve spot.

Probably. The statement came from a FF interview; can’t recall which one and I’ve listened to a lot of them. I will see if I can locate it.


Let’s coin a new phrase. You can’t have a “correct solve” unless you can knowingly go to within several steps of the treasure chest. Otherwise you have a “general solve.” What do you think? F

Forrest also said something to effect of “I cant imagine anyone getting within 12’ and not seeing it”.

Is either of those quotes what you are referring to?

No, I believe there was a different quote, but can’t say for certain. I am listening to various interviews to see if I can locate it...

I think she can attest to sealed lips, don't even ask (and it's not sexual or gross so don't bother asking for real)... I am intrigued though. I am searching a trip in NM; just need to get out with the 4WD to finish and pretty sure have the hints and clues married properly to a certain area... Mostly cash is my problem at this moment and of course the fire restrictions are a factor.
I will ask you this: is there a 1 in your trip? It is not one of Fenn's hints (that I have found in the SBs or books or interviews)... I am preparing to finish the trip July 4th week plus, lol...

Thanks for the offer. I am compiling a list of potentials...

Quote:Forrest,
You said in the past that the chest is not in a dangerous place; yet searchers are searching along Cliffside’s, raging water, and other seemingly dangerous places. Could you please elaborate or qualify your statement in which you said” The chest is not in a dangerous place”
Thanks
Edward

Edward, thanks for the question.
The treasure is not hidden in a dangerous place in the normal definition of the word, realizing that there probably is no place on this planet that is safe under all conditions. Bloggers have quoted me as saying that a child could walk up to the treasure. I don’t think that’s an accurate quote because a three year old girl would have a problem without some help. Remember, I was about 80 when I hid the chest, and had to make two trips.f

RE: A bold statement, but I'll make it anyway...
One problem with your request is the ambiguity of trustworthy. How could the "community" determine if someone is trustworthy or not. How many have had actual financial or confidential dealing with them to determine if they are trustworthy or not. Sure they may make a good impression or made themselves a public figure but the same is true for con artists and swindlers. Unless someone has had actual experience dealing with someone when there is an actual fiduciary duty involved there is no way to know and even then you can never be sure. Just because someone was honest or trustworthy once does not ensure they will behave the same in the future. Asking who the community thinks is trustworthy will return nothing more than who is popular, which is something completely unrelated to trustworthiness, especially when substantial amounts of money are on the line.

What the community may be able to provide is who might be a person that may be able to evaluate your solve and provide credible or insightful feedback. The community has read many searchers theories and thoughts on various aspects of the search and might nominate individuals that they think have the knowledge and skills to give a thorough evaluation.

You would still have the problem of determining rather or not someone is trustworthy. How could you possibly know? Exchange emails, talk on the phone...run a background check for criminal history, ask for a list of references...? I suggest that all of those should be done and even then you can never really know, because large sums of money are involved.

RE: A bold statement, but I'll make it anyway...
A literary agent in London is on standby and has guaranteed she will do a $million in 6 months. All I need is a photograph of the chest. I could even leave the chest in situ so I don’t break any stupid laws /claims from the landowner

books make money... just ask jk Rowling

I agree and this is the type of feedback I would want from a chosen searcher. A trusted searcher that doesn’t provide credible or insightful feedback wouldn’t be compelling to me.

Pays to be a winner.

As Forrest would say. The only way that two people can keep a secret is if one of them is dead.

Now no one is trustworthy

It is hidden. Forrest says that three people have been close. 1 within 250’ and 2 within 500’

I know that you are not going to say your solve. I wouldn’t either. You feel as strongly as I do about mine.

If your solve has a hot spring as the start
Try again
If your home of brown has anything to do with “Brown”
Try again.

Good luck to you!
I will grab it the first of March!

if you don't realize Brown connects directly to Brown, then be prepared for disappointment

If the solve holds coordinates, then yes I would be interested. If your solve hasn't coordinates then you are not correct. There are coordinates connected to the clues.

Bold statement, but to be believed you must prove it. Over to you...
