Calling yourselves poem purists doesn’t make you any more likely to find the treasure or gain a special place in the heart of Saint Forrest. No one, save your pure band of brothers, respects you for using it. Currying favor and rank in this manner makes me puke.

You haven’t accomplished anything more than we the impure have, and probably much less, so your self-titling anointment is a hollow exercise in treasure-finding beatification. Get real, Saint Purist, you’re merely the patron to a team of sled dogs that are very comfortable with the sight of your north-bound south end.

The fact that you’re here on this blog is prima facie evidence of your non-purist habits. Admit it; you’re not here to exchange banana bread recipes. You’re here to suck as much blood as you can from the bodies of the masses. You are just as predatory as any wolf of Wall Street and I know for a fact that you relax with a cigarette after posting.

So there you go, my purist friends. You have been rounded up and branded. A large red P is burned onto your foreheads, a permanent blaze that can be followed by all the barking purists to come. There is no redemption. And for you there will be no treasure. Your kingly clothes are figments of your ego and you stand exposed as phonies and pretenders. You are hereby chastised, shamed, and berated.

Well looky here....
Notice how the greatest social experiment ever conducted converted the anti-poem purist into a Davis and Seannm worshiper! Amazing what you can achieve when you lock up a group of outcasts on a lonely island.
ROTFLMAO

...
If a "poem purist" only uses the poem by definition, then where do they get the constraints 5000-10200?
Why are they not searching Canada, Washington, Nevada or North Dakota? Where is that in the poem that tells them to search in the Rockies?
Where is the poem does it say to search north of Santa Fe?

If that purist takes a single fact or theory, even if universally regarded as right, from any other source then they have no chance.

Yup even purists use Fenn's words and guys like Seannm uses Fenn's words even more than anyone. Laughable.

That's a clever, amusing posting . . . even if it is a few years old.

I think there are no real poem purists. It's all a myth, like "fairness".
Folks (including snowflakes) should get over this.

Agreed. I poke fun at the concept because it really is silly and some people are so defensive, it makes me laugh.

The term "poem purist" should be eliminated. A more more realistic and appropriate definition is "poem focused" since we all use varying degrees of the poem in our research, but absolutely no one is purely poem.

RE: Poem Purists are from the Devil!
Picture this:
If I was having a treasure hunt and I told everyone to meet me at Big Bend State Park, then once there I handed you a poem with clues to a treasure what would do you? Would you say the (generic) poem isn't enough information and that the treasure could be anywhere in the world? Or would you assume Big Bend is the starting point and from there start looking for clues?

In a lot of ways Fenn ruined the chase by changing the starting location to in the Rockies.
Before this ever got on Good Morning America earlier hunters like Dal and myself were ONLY searching in New Mexico why?
Because the book lays out the starting point - somewhere north of Santa Fe.
Because the book is only sold in one location - Santa Fe.
Therefore, if you are starting in Santa Fe and Fenn hands you the poem what do you do?
Complain that the poem can take you anyway in the world?
Or do you start looking around north of Santa Fe for clues?

This is why I believe it's possible that the ONLY thing you need is the poem, IF that poem was given to you at the starting point and you go from there (which it was).

Well, I tried the approach that you favor here before and I told myself I would not do that again.

When I lived in Seattle, I was working on a treasure hunt that a Seattle radio station designed and promoted. It didn’t have any set boundaries listed anywhere. I just assumed (like your favored approach here) that the secreted place would be in the Seattle city proper area. Nope, it turns out that the secret place was about as far away from Seattle as one could go on the Washington coast at a light house.

Like I have mentioned on this blog a few times, I heard of the Chase many months before I actually began attempts to figure out the poem. I didn’t start trying to figure it out until f established boundaries. I learned from the past.


Howdy, Mister.
