How does Fenn know the Treasure is still there?

So what if Fenn committed a horrible crime or new someone who did and the evidence of the crime is in the chest. He said there was a surprise in the chest he refuses to talk about. Would that surprise evidence not compel or force the finder to come forward with the discovery of the chest. Perhaps this surprise item is something that legally forces the finder to come forward and is another way he would know.

Not really something the finder would enjoy, might even regret finding it if the chest contained a surprise item was a real life Pandora's box. He did say he hid the chest to give people hope or is that Hope? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandora%27s_box

In my opinion, this was one of the more interesting things that Stephanie's book connected to the chase. The secret may be contained in the chest...I can keep my secret where. Other than a few stacks, the DB Cooper money was never heard from again. If there is some in there it might leave no doubt. It's an interesting thought. If it were true, it would be a better story, though, if he had released the book upon his death making claim to the crime and challenge everyone to find the truth. Who knows, maybe that's what we're doing.

Oh boy, here we go again with this DB Cooper nonsense.

No, it's just an extension of the theory. It could be any number of things. Maybe Forrest and Eric were secret lovers. Eric couldn't hold a marriage together and Forrest's cover was that he is married to the most beautiful girl he could have imagined. Which one did Forrest write a book about. The Fox and The Hound. Marvin taught Forrest how to disguise his lack of brains, or something.

Word! From experiencing trouble, a fool is made wise.

I wasn't thinking of the DB Cooper connection, but that example surely fits the theory. I am sure there are others as well, likely remotely hinted at in his books.

Crazy Family, your remark about "keep my secret where" is something that really supports this theory. He has a secret hidden in his Pandora's box that when discovered unequivocally forces us to come forward to release the secret. He really did think of everything.

One last thing to consider, remember these words from SB 124

"Well, that’s the sad story, and I really don’t know what else to say, except that if anybody can tell me where I caught that beautiful rainbow trout, I’ll tell them a secret that I haven’t revealed to anyone – ever."

So he has admitted he has a big secret (which the treasure hunter thinks is just the spot) but the real secret is inside the chest and he has not revealed to anyone what that secret is. Wow that secret in the chest must be a doozy! But the atrocious quote makes me think it is more of a curse than a blessing.

I sent him my opinion on where his "spot" was. I couldn't help but find meaning in what he said. My email was pointed and his response didn't disappoint. Sorry, I will not reveal what he said.

Sounds like favoritism to me.
Who else did he give clarity to?

Yeah, I’m sure everyone would say I’m hallucinating, and I wouldn’t exactly say it is clarity. In all fairness, he did ask everyone, or someone, to tell him where his spot was and he would tell a secret. So, everyone had the same opportunity.

I don’t think Forrest plays like that, and he surely isn’t afraid of hoax talk.

No need to worry folks. Forrest doesn’t play favorites. If he did, the treasure would have already been found.

And, what difference does it make how he knows that the treasure is still out there where he put it? You either take him at his word or you don’t. It’s as simple as that.

i think Fenn will email back any searcher regardless, even ones he knows might be potential treasure finders and who may have solved some clues correctly. "dangerous" is the word sometimes used

more to the point, though, I don't think he typically emails searchers back in response to their solves, or clue ideas, or them sharing where they think the treasure is

and he, imo, definitely doesn't respond directly to that kind of thing if it is correct or even partially correct

even if he knows a searcher is dangerous, i think he could still respond though to something in the email not clue/solve related

there was a relevant Q&A where I don't remember enough of the exact language to google search it, but if anyone knows where to find it I'd appreciate the link

in it they ask f what he would do if someone sent him the correct solve. I think his reply was essentially he wouldn't reply

Yeah, he said he wouldn't know what to say, so he probably wouldn't say anything. Then, something like, no response or lack of response from him should be considered as a confirmation, or not. Basically a total non-commitment.

Serious? OJ Simpson a beloved football star said he didn't kill Nicole and Goldman. So according to your advice we should just "take him at his word" and give him a pass and ignore that bloody glove in his back yard?
