That is a possibility, with all these comments about being close for so many years, the indication someone is close going on for so many years, gut feeling, but no chest. Did the solver walk away? Interesting way to look at it. Sure anything is possible.

I'm not sure the Hunter has walked away. He probably is wondering what will happen if/when an announcement of the retrieval of the chest is made.

What will the Non-believers say and do?
What will the devout followers say and do?

How about the 7%ers?

What about the people who gave up because of the negative comments and allegations of fraud that have been posted on certain forums associated with the Chase? Will any of those folks become 7%ers who turn their ire toward those who drove them from the Chase, believing that, were it not for those people, they would have continued efforts to solve the poem and "likely" would have been the Retriever?

I guess anything is possible. I mean, look at our current Congress.

@inohury......Strange logic, but using facts.....6 maybe more deaths from searching verses 0 chest, would mean these searchers would have been more likely to die than find the chest, had they continued searching.
That being said, I doubt anyone who quit searching has done so because some have questioned the treasures existence. I think it is more likely they quit because of the favoritism and shenanigans going on behind the scenes.

If all this was going on 5 years ago I wouldn't have stuck around. Now I feel like I have a vested interest in the outcome.

RE: Why would anyone
Only 5 or so feel there is a chest out there? More non-believers on this site?

I believe the number is 4 deaths attributed to having occurred while those people were in search of the treasure. Not to diminish the 4 and my sympathies go to their families.

There is a great likelihood that people who have quit the Chase have done so for many reasons, to include questioning the existence of the treasure and concerns over allegations of favoritism and shenanigans.

You are one who believes strongly that Forrest Fenn has given private hints to his "favorites". Do you believe that he gives public hints to all? How about public, coded hints to some, regardless of whether they may be "favorites"?

Peace,

Inohury

The problem is that Fenn's personal shortcomings reduced a treasure hunt to pure white trash comedy.

Hay! I resemble that remark!

Meanwhile how many have died in car crashes, over 30,000 per year!

And how many have died because of congestive heart failure because they did not get enough exercise?

How many have taken their own lives as a result of depression, having no goals and/or thinking they had reasons to live?

In all reality, Forrest has probably SAVED THOUSANDS of lives or at least extended them a few years.

Yet he will never get any public credit for that.

He might.
