  • List of things revealed by the Finder about the Chase

    Please add to my list as you see fit.
    1. Finder figured out the location where Forrest wanted to die and where the treasure was in 2018, but it took him many months to find it.
    2. Finder spent 25 full days of looking for the treasure at the general location before he actually found it
    3. Finder took the treasure back to his rental car and cried
    4. Finder provided a photo of the treasure taken a couple of feet from "the nook" where it had been placed
    5. Forrest wanted to fly Finder back to Santa Fe to get to know him better and even wanted him to move to Santa Fe.
    6. Finder met Forrest in June and it was the only time he got to spend time with him
    7. Finder noticed a couple of slip ups Forrest made to reporters over the years, and apparently he thinks he is the only one that noticed them, implying they were very relevant
    8. Finder called Fenn in 2018 and told Fenn where he was looking. The conversation lasted no more than 20 seconds and Fenn didn't reveal anything.
    9. Finder told Forrest about a blaze that had been faked at the general location in the brief conversation
    10. The fake blaze was less than 1000 feet from the treasure
    11. The finder is a millennial with student loans to pay off
    12. The finder will offer the treasure for sale
    13. Forrest had a final wish of where he wanted the treasure to end up. The finder will try to make that happen as a first step
    14. Finder expect to return to site someday under "towering pines", shielding his eyes from the bright sun, in the Cowboy State
    15. Finder doesn't know the relevance of the double omegas and didn't get to ask and that died with Forrest

    Sorry, quick side note...

    "10. The fake blaze was less than 1000 feet from the treasure"

    Can we now extrapolate from this that the area is a place that has been searched many times before? Enough that people would be leaving false blazes?

        The person who finds the treasure will have studied the poem over and over
        And thought and analyzed and moved with cofidence
        Nothing about it will be accidental Forrest Fenn

        Something does not match with what Forrest Fenn said does it
        If the finder had the right solve Forrest said it would take him right to the spot.
        So some fake blaze cost him 25 days and two years ?

          Well we can extrapolate that someone had been searching in the general area before. Given the apparent difficulty in finding it in the general area, it seems quite plausible that the area had been searched many times before. Good point.

            Finder didn't mention following the clues.
            Finder didn't mention hints in the book.
            Finder jumped right in at the blaze.
            Finder did not walk confidently to the chest's location.
            Finder used the word fake.
            Finder apparently flew west in early May. (Just trying to get those 25 days of searching in, but it could be like ten days in 2018 and 15 days in 2020)
            Finder then drove to Santa Fe. (How did Finder get home? He probably didn't fly with the gold.)
            Finder was too busy to visit a guy whose gold he just found.... all summer.
            Finder didn't mention reading the biography in the jar.
            Finder assumes scissor end up in chest on accident.
            Finder didn't read the book Forrest gave him.
            Finder didn't even reveal what it felt like to solve the first few clues or how they were nailed down.
            Finder spends too much time talking passed the audience rather than to us.
            Finder tells us he won't tell us.
            Finder and Forrest maintained communication throughout the summer but finder wouldn't come see Forrest or bother asking any questions.
            Finder calls himself a millennial, which is not something millennials do.
            Finder chose to publish on an internet site rather than a much larger publication like Time or People or National Geographic, all of whom would have run this story, because it's written by a professional writer. The person who wrote this is also a master at providing toasts at parties.
            Finder doesn't feel very real in this account.

            This really sucks. Why does this ending have to suck? Just tell us some hints and clues. Why is everything a ridiculous mystery to this day?

              This is one of the most surprising things revealed to me. The poem was supposed to take you within a few feet, and Forrest said the Finder used the poem to find the treasure, but it took 25 days to find it even though the poem takes you to a few feet?

              My conclusion is that the Finder didn't solve everything, perhaps until after he found the treasure or after he talked to Forrest. He had what Forrest called "a general solve".

                I think there is a method to the seeming madness.

                  all this communication back and forth this summer..... STILL Forrest must ask everyone to take pictures and names at the Finale to see if the finder is there...
                  So supposedly Forrest had been asking the finder to come visit him all summer, but the finder was too busy? and then Forrest thought he might have come to Yellowstone to visit searchers instead???......absolute B.S.

                    At the end of this method, will we know the solve? Or is there some compelling reason why the solve will simply not be revealed (perhaps to protect the location or to protect the possible unlawful retrieval)? I got the feeling that's what the finder was implying, i.e. he needed to protect the solve permanently.

                      Because...all due respect to the late Forrest Fenn...he had no idea what he was talking about most of the time. His comments were mostly shoot from the hip, and are massively lacking in accuracy despite the depiction of him as some master wordsmith. The puzzle may still be well crafted, but the hints that came afterwards were clearly less so. And some info was just flat out wrong.

                        When I smell that sunshine, it just stinks.

                          I’m laughing out loud. This is still part of the maneuvering, legal and otherwise. I actually believed it for like two hours. Nope. This is drawing out all the lawsuits now. Smoke’s gonna have to clear before the Finder gets the gold. That’s why this thing was published on an Internet site. The estate is provoking anyone waiting in the wings with nonsense law suits. One thing I know for a fact is there are three people in that room. Forrest, whoever Forrest is looking at, and the person taking photos.

                          Alright, file them lawsuits, ya crazies. Let’s wrap it up soon.

                          This must be part of the plan or else this is just a wildly disappointing ending.

                          Medium? Lol. Of all places. Medium? Yeah right. Who wouldn’t publish this? And the finder turns to Medium, why? Because they probably don’t fact check or verify sources.

                              Where's the caked on mud on the chest? It looks pretty clean compared to the photo Forrest released.
