    1. Not on top of a mountain
    2. Between 5000 and 10,200 feet elevation

    5. Treasure chest is not submerged underwater

      A triplet of ducks is an excellent start, especially if you use Angelo, Barney, and Tail End Charlie.
      You catch on pretty well. I was kinda teasing about them. But I don't associate them with a start. Their relation in my solve is about mid-solve.

        It’s interesting that you called the cross dynamic visually. I also saw some movement; it’s an understated honest peace, not gaudy in opulence.
        However, I am entirely unconvinced that the tc isn’t in a dessert. A yummy, yummy dessert.

            My chosen Chase ‘sandwich’ is light-weight vacuum-packed freeze dried Neapolitan. (So animals can’t smell it- it’s not like I’m bringing enough for all of them.) They’re nutritiously worthless but delicious- like Lucky Charm marshmallows. Ooooo- I bet they’d make awesome s’mores, ...will let you know the test results next BOTG.

              Nice list, Zap. I assume that is a redacted version, last time I counted my 'restrictions it was up to some 30+ items. Here is an important one I'm sure you have on your main list; considering the state you are searching in:

              **It is not located anywhere that it can be impacted by mudslides, forest fires, earthquakes or floods!**

              Per Fenn - -
              "The immediate landscape will probably remain about the same for as long as time has to go."

              adverb: probably - almost certainly, as far as one knows or can tell

              (Although he has said it before; I used his latest comment on this, dated Feb. 4, this year)

                You've literally disqualified everywhere in the search area. Saying that the immediate landscape will remain the same does not mean "it is not located anywhere that it can be impacted by mudslides, forest fires, earthquakes or floods".

                  I've disqualified nothing. Anyone is quite free to search whatever their little heart desires even if it has no chance of producing the chest.

                  And, I didn't say it....Fenn did, approximately seven years ago, in answer to a direct question.

                  Q: How do you know that the treasure is going to be safe and secure when it’s hidden for the next 1000 years. And somebody might not build a bridge and, uh, dig or some natural event might occur that would expose it?
                  A: “That’s always possible. Forest fires, earthquakes, mudslides, floods….uh, what you see is what you get. We have no control over that. But, ahh, I think the aura of it will always be there..… It, it’s not likely, but it certainly could happen.”

                  Fenn has repeatedly addressed the vagaries of Mother Nature and that, with Her, anything is 'possible', anywhere. But, in the two examples I have provided, he strongly indicates in his opinion that the likelihood of such phenomena affecting the chest's resting place is slim to none! (and no one knows the location and probabilities of external forces as well as Fenn?)
                  adverb: probably - almost certainly, as far as one knows or can tell
                  Definition of not likely : probably not


                  have a great day, Dryw

                    He's saying all those things could affect it. Not likely but certainly could happen.

                    I'm saying we don't add that to a list of areas that are disqualified like what zap posted above because Fenn said those could affect the search area but not likely.

                      Hmm. Nice ideas dryw. That cross he drew reminds me of that symbol for marriage. The cross and rings.
