  • Resources for new searchers

    Whatsssss up. Hearin about this treasure for a while and getting into it. Kinda new and would like to know the right places to go and get information. I went to search and millions of hits. Need to wade through the crap and get to the good stuff.

    I have only been in it for about two years (wow, where does the time go!). Here is a list I have compiled:

    Old Santa Fe Trading - Fenn's site, and good for past information, though not much new there.

    Collected Works Bookstore - place to buy the books. There are three. Fenn has said that there are subtle hints in the first memoir but there are two additional books. The third memoir are updates to already published scrapbooks from Dals site. - Great site for transcribed information and able to key word search. Very nice place to get exact quotes. Not every single thing is up there but much of it is. Http://

    Info from Fenn / Blogs:
    Dals - Fenn puts out updates via scrapbooks on this site. The scrapbooks are numbered. The site is rich for information, but difficult to navigate the comment portion and the site is heavily moderated. There are posts related to topic and "odds and ends". Know the rules (which are not posted) before you post, or you may be banned.

    Jenny's - Fenn puts out additional updates via weekly words, surprise words, etc. Jenny posts them on her site. Her site has many hunts on them, including her own. She started a forum about a year ago and the forum portion of the site needs to be positive and uplifting, so will moderate negative banter. She seems very nice but not much dialogue has been going on there in the forum section in the Fenn part.

    Other search sites/blogs/videos to watch:

    A Gypsys Kiss - puts out information updates on the fenn hunt. Also high resolution pictures and other interesting updates. Toby and Shelly are also often invited to video/record book signings and such for the community from Fenn himself. The weekly updates are T&S opinions of the updates and discusses real issues related to the chase. They know their stuff on the facts, though the opinions they give are their own and they make which are facts and which are opinions.

    Harry's - Really smart searchers are regulars on this site, though also a honest and "no hold barred" site where most things go. Only takes new users on occasion. Has a private area for registered users.

    I am sure there are others, and hope other add.

      Thanks for that list. It is a nice one. I was on chase chat for a while but left there because of the anti-fenn and hoax claims. There were other claims too, but don't want to go there. That place is a joke. If you don't find the treasure chest, dont get mad, just go away.

      There is a guy named Mike, he goes by Cowlazar. He was putting up videos for a while, not sure what happened to him or if he is still posting. I enjoyed his videos, he is a dad like I am and love hunting with my boys.

        For the noobie: The first link is to Lucky Love's YouTube site. It contains pretty much all of the videos of Fenn, that are still available! If you're serious about the Chase, you need to watch all of them....IMO. If you check out her playlist, there are more. That little girl worked her tail off, compiling those....I speak from experience.

        The second link is JCM's documents for sale site. He has done an excellent job of compiling, also. I suggest purchasing the combo, you won't regret it. And he presents most of Fenn's comments related to the topics most searchers discuss. He also worked hard to compile this, and again, I speak from experience. (I'm still not sure if I'm pleased that he released this? )....j/k JCM.

        OK, if you're hesitant to trust the links, and you should be, there are a few here who can vouch for me.

        Thanks for the heads-up to the site, 'k'. Nice to see Yoda and RT here....this one might work.

        Oh yeah.....Good Luck to All Ya'll!!!,,,,,,,loco

          Nice Loco, very nice. I knew about the one, but not Lucky's. That is very impressive of a list of videos. Hopefully she makes her way here. Impressive research she has compiled.

          We just launched yesterday so glad to see a few people we know and a few newbies. I am somewhere in between. .

              Kpro, I noticed that there was a post on Myster writings site that is now deleted? Why is that? I also noticed you you said you PMed Jenny on a thread. What's up? So why is she allowing references and posts about Chease chat - the site the wonders and mods says are a hoax that fenn this terrible person? Is that what the mysterious writing site thinks? Why would fenn put out words and updates on this site that is supporting chase chat.......................... about the chase if that site supports those that are trying to destroy the chase and fenn himself. Is she in the "me too" club....... oohhhhh snap. Not Jenny, is she a hater? I used to think Jenny was hella cool but now I wonder. Does she beleive what those others think and there is more to this nonesense drama crap than I initially thought? With her actions I want to know. Give it to us straight girl.

                      If you haven't seen this one, you might want to give it a look.

                        In case anyone is wondering:
                        • The tips are things like above 5,000', below 10,200', in the Rocky Mountains, more than 8.25 miles north of Santa Fe, not in Idaho, not in Canada, in a safe place, etc... etc... etc...
                        • The hints are in TTOTC. They help you with the clues.
                        • The clues are in the poem. They point you toward the treasure.

                        If you're serious about finding the treasure these should be your primary concerns while working on your solution.

                        "I said a hint will help you with the clues, but won’t take you toward the treasure. It is the clues that will take you to the treasure. f"

                          "There are nine clues in my poem and the poem is in my book and I'm not going to give anymore clues.... There are hints in my book that will help you with the clues but a clue will point you toward the treasure chest and a hint will just help you with the clues. If you can understand that."

                            "If you're really serious about looking for the treasure get The Thrill of the Chase and read it and then go back and read the poem over and over and over again and then go back and read the book again but slowly looking at every little abstract thing that might catch up in your brain that might be a hint to help you with the clues. Any part of some is better than no part of any."
