    Don't worry, it would be impossible for me to dig there, which is why I don't think it means to dig.

    • Forrest said the chest was wet.
      Then he said it again.
      And now, as of Saturday, he once again says it is wet.

      "If you are in the right spot, something you haven't thought about should be obvious to you."

      So, the chest is still wet.
      Man, this is worse than waiting for paint to dry.

        I must have missed this. What did he say on Saturday about the chest being wet?

            It is, indeed. Every time I think of Fenn saying the chest is "wet" I chuckle.

                By "wet" I just assume he means "spiritless", which means "dry".

                Either that, or "moist".

                Or this:

                noun
                ARCHAIC
                noun: whet; plural noun: whets
                1. 1.
                  a thing that stimulates appetite or desire.
                  "he swallowed his two dozen oysters as a whet"

                Origin

                  That's one way to see it (as a homophone), instead I prefer "fluent" since it means 'free flowing' (of water or speech) and 'silver-tongued' (running, liquid, flowing, easy) and 'in clover' (sheltered, on a bed of roses); all of which can take you to "contentment" and/or "contented".

I'm a leader but not a stupid leader, so if I can others to help me, because I am under some financial burden right now, I will seek their help. Tell me how I'm trying to scam people out of their money? You made the accusation so please explain it. Here is my pitch if you need some additional information to help you out https://www.indiegogo.com/project/preview/2766795a#/
                    You were given opportunity to show the picture of the chest you claim to have. And you still have not done so, so no need to go to your gogo site. I've read miles of your silliness on this forum already. So put up or shut up !

                    • If Forrest meant "whet" he would have spelled it that way. Consider the "no red herrings" and "no subterfuge" comments. "Simplify" also comes to mind. Assuming "wet" means anything other than moist, not dry, exposed to water, is not a straightforward interpretation of his remarks.

                        I'm keen to know if he's spelt it anywhere, would you know? I've always assumed he's only said it, not written it. I'd be very happy to be put straight on that.

                          Physics tells me the treasure is wet.

                          If I was standing where the treasure chest is, I see trees, I see mountains, I see animals, I’ll smell wonderful smells of pine needles or pinon nuts, sage brush. And I know the treasure chest is wet.

                            Thank you very much ; the former is something he's written, I remember it now and thanks for that. The latter is quoted so I never trusted the spelling.

                              He's made a lot of comments about the chest being wet. I wonder if the chest is always wet.

                                Depends on how you look at it, I suppose.

                                wet = not dry. Like wet paint - do not touch.
                                not dry = dewy

                                Now, here's the good part . . .
                                dewy = Dusty Rose
                                and, Dusty Rose = http://mysteriouswritings.com/featur...tter-at-plate/
                                wherein, Forrest mentions ". . . the Custer fight." , which is famously known as Custer's last stand.
                                His 'final resting place' https://www.classicthesaurus.com/Last_Stand

                                He mentions the batter at plate, which brings to mind 'batter up', and 'at bat', if you want to follow those.
                                To save you some time, I wound up at 'wide open' which = yours for the taking.
                                If you can find it, you can have it.

                                In short, if "wet" is a play on words, then yes, it will be wet every single day until it's found.
                                No water involved.
