Full of Warm Waters Halt
I had lost track of where this post even was. You wanted the references - here it is.



This is the excerpt from the Daily Beast article. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/20...art-2.html

"But as you frisk and refrisk the poem for its meaning, keep a few more clues in mind: some people have suggested the treasure is under water, plopped in a river where Fenn loved to fish or swim. They are wrong, I know, for in a moment of exuberance, Fenn said so. He told me the chest is “exposed” to rain and snow, and could be scorched in a forest fire. He told me the box, which is just 10 inches by 10 inches, is unlocked—suggesting it’s someplace where it is unlikely to be toppled or otherwise thrown open."



The reporter claims that Forrest said this, but that is a claim that we can't prove or even read to understand the context. Forrest will not acknowledge this is true and in each interview since has always made sure to avoid this issue. He won't say for sure either way.



This is from the United Airlines article -

“What serious adventurers should remember,” Fenn says, “is to not believe anything that is not in my poem or otherwise in my book. There’s some misinformation out there. For instance, I never said I buried the chest, I said only that I hid it. That is not to say it is not buried, so maybe we need to define the terms. Does ‘hidden’ mean in plain sight? What is the difference between ‘buried,’ ‘entombed’ and ‘sepultured’?



If we believe Tony is correctly quoting Forrest, then the chest is in the trees where it can be scorched by a forest fire. That would preclude buried, in a cave, on a rock ledge, in a lake, river, or waterfall, etc...



I have no idea if it's buried or not, but Forrest has not publicly stated this clue, so we must keep an open mind.



If you find a different quote from Forrest where he positively says it's not buried, then please post it as that would be a helpful hint.
