Vague use by FF of the word "treasure"?

Vague use by FF of the word "treasure"?
I'm a bit nervous about FF's use of the word "treasure".

Since his poem mentions "riches new and old" (which has me thinking
about nature, beautiful scenery, and the like), I wonder why he wasn't
more specific. If he talks, for example, about finding the treasure, why
didn't he say "treasure chest"? Was he referring to something (perhaps
less crass) such as the beautiful location itself?

I fear that a searcher for the Fenn treasure chest may go to the place
specifically indicated by the poem and find that there is no bronze chest
containing gold coins, nuggets, etc. -- but instead just see natural things
like a serene location with vegetation, water, and an occasional glimpse
of an animal of some kind.

I wish that FF would let us know that whenever he says/said "treasure" -- in the context of this hunt -- that he means/meant the bronze chest and the gold, jewels, etc.

This is why sometimes think this is all about leavening a legacy for a thousand of years.
Look mostly every one Forrest dealt with left a legacy movie stars country signers ect.

I've wondered the same thing. All we can do is believe FF is a man of his word.

He is...just have to question the solver's word.

If you have a chest full of goodies in front of you....would you tell everybody if it was a secret? That is why I question the solver. If the solver is I, than I can keep my secret where....right? I knows and I is not saying while people keep searching.

"Treasures bold" is not referring to the treasure chest.

"Riches new and old" is not referring to the treasure chest.

"Just take the chest" is not referring to the treasure chest.

"And leave my trove" is not referring to the treasure chest.

You should only consider that "treasure chest" is referring to the treasure chest.

All of the other four references mean something completely different in the poem. Otherwise you will never solve the poem's clues.

These are all just my ideas. I hope no one uses them.

This appears to suggest/imply that the poem is not concerned with a bronze chest, nor coins, nuggets, etc. at all. Search trips can be quite
expensive. Has the original motivation/lure disappeared?

RE: Vague use by FF of the word "treasure"?
the truht may be that the treasure exists, but for most all searchers it is the same as if it doesn't exist because they are never going to find it

this reality then gets slowly but surely substituted with the idea that the treasure isn't actually out there at all, in the Rockies, and one couldn't even find it in theory

this would allow a searcher to not have to acknowledge their clue solves are wrong. and I don't know if anyone noticed but it is the rare searcher that acknowledges that, or even that it is likely, for some reason

and as a nice bonus, if the treasure isn't really in the Rockies hidden somewhere, then a seacher could also claim to be right. to have the correct solve. and this may be typically accompanied with the idea that they found what f truly desired for them to find in the thrill of the chase. it just doesn't happen to be a literal treasure chest with gold and jewels

edit: does anyone see the hint in my post?
