The hiding space
What are your guesses, thoughts, solutions on the hiding space?

Under a rock or a log? Buried? Exposed? In water? Inside a standing or fallen tree? Something else?

I believe Fenn has said something to the effect of that we'll be "surprised" at the spot (Does someone have the exact quote?).

Discuss.

It's under one of those freaky staircases up to nothing you find out in the middle of the backwoods.....

Lol, that's awesome. I want to just go find one of those suckers at least.

Pays to be a winner.

RE: The hiding space
Maybe it's hidden in a wormhole out in the woods. I'm willing to look. He might have traveled to another Galaxy to hide this thing. Has anyone checked Andromeda?

Seriously though, I think it's got natural camouflage.

I have a real hard time rationalizing it being underwater, but that debate has been held several times.

RE: The hiding space
@GoneAlone - You asked a couple of really good questions, & I believe they deserve serious answers ... NOT a bunch of silliness & nonsense. FF has always emphasized the "hidden" aspect, rather than buried. To me, the word "buried" means to dig a hole in the ground, place something in it, then refill the hole with dirt. I do NOT think FF did that because he told us that NO tools are needed. Besides that, there's FF's 12 ft statement ... that if a searcher was within 12 ft of the treasure, he could find it ... some such statement.

I think "hidden" is different. To me, that means the treasure is concealed somehow ... out of sight. If a hole is dug, something placed in it, but covered with something besides dirt ... like a rock or leaves or wood pieces ... it is "hidden", NOT buried. Yes, it could be concealed above ground somehow, perhaps wedged into a space. Didn't FF say NOT in a cave or a mine? I can't remember exactly. He did say it isn't in a tree ... hollow or otherwise.

The "surprise" issue has always been a roadblock for me. Did FF say we'd be surprised at the spot ... meaning the area or did he mean the way the treasure is hidden? What would surprise the finder?

FF has said the treasure chest is wet & no one can stumble over it. What else?

Very good post, thank you!

I am concerned as rain, snow, hail etc happen that it once was exposed (but hidden) though now it is not. Thoughts on that?

RE: The hiding space
@Kpro - Yes, I remember FF said, at one time, the snow was on it & that the chest is susceptible to the elements ... & that wind could affect it the most. Never made much sense to me. How could wind harm the chest or its contents ... unless it was "hanging" somewhere & swinging freely in the breeze? Nah ... how could you "hang" a 42 lb chest?

Didn't FF also say that wild animals would NOT bother it? You know, like open the lid & scatter the contents? So it must be somehow concealed "in" or "under" a protective barrier of some sort? But what?

I read somewhere that he dipped it in wax to help protect it. I may be wrong, but I remember that would make it more weather proof.

I think it is down a side of a cliff or terrace where it could be accessed by people but animals would not have interest.

On my BOTG trip, I found over a dozen hidy-holes like that , searched them all, nada. I did find a snake in one though.....
