Forrest Fenn Treasure: Resource Page
Surprise, Random, and Periodic Words from Forrest Fenn
MysteriousWritings © 2017 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Besides the ‘Weekly Words’ which were words for posting each Friday and can be found on it’s own page: Forrest Fenn’s Weekly Words, there were Surprise, Random, and Periodic Words sent to me. The only difference from Weekly Words is how they were given and when. I never knew when I would receive these words, and I would post them as soon as I was able (not just on Friday’s, like the Weekly Words).
These words are now all gathered and shared below on ONE PAGE– with links to each separate page for the reading of comments concerning each individual post if wanted.
Forrest Fenn Surprise Words:
I was just wondering. If I can find the blase, why should I worry about where warm waters halt? All I need to do is look “quickly down” like the poem says, and there is the treasure, right? ~ Philadelphia Franklin
That’s correct Philly, but that’s not a plausible scenario. If you can find a fish already on your hook you needn’t go fishing, right?
Don’t force those kinds of aberrational thoughts on yourself or you’ll likely walk back to your car with a very light back pack. f
A polite-like email from Kristie, who admits to being a desk person, prompts me to say that if you are walking long distances in search of the treasure, you’re walking too far. f
Mr Fenn, A blog is making a big deal about you liking to be alone. Your poem says, “As I have gone alone in there.” The final chapters in several books say something like “…alone with only my thoughts…”
I recently read that you frequently sit in the shade alone for hours and water your trees. Is being alone some kind of weird thing with you Mr fenn, or what? Sally McIntosh
That practice does not suffer a sinister side Sally, It’s just that I enjoy the solitude and the company. f
Lots of rain in New Mexico. Some mountain roads are washing downhill. Please be mud aware. f

“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” ~Mark Twain
Don’t force the poem to fit your spot. Thank you Mark. f
Random Words from Forrest Fenn:
*If you don’t know where it is, go back to the first clue.f
*If you tell your solve to a friend, don’t be surprised if she shops at Gucci while you fill your cart at Walmart. f
*No one ever got rich by overestimating the human imagination. f
*The bitterness of the cold outside is bettered by the warmth of the little fire at my side, but much more comforting is the ambience of it. f
*Don’t look for a trick or subterfuge from me, because there aren’t any. f
Periodic Words from Forrest Fenn:
(Although provided at different times, they were posted on same page: Periodic Words)
Posted June 2nd, 2017:
* Let’s coin a new phrase. You can’t have a “correct solve” unless you can knowingly go to within several steps of the treasure chest. Otherwise you have a “general solve.” What do you think? f
Posted June 5th, 2017:
* To answer some questions and save others from being asked, I did follow the clues in the poem when I hid the treasure chest, although I hid it before the poem was complete. (Completed?) f
Posted July 7th, 2017:
*So that everyone will know, and not just the searcher I replied to this morning, you don’t need to break anything to find the treasure. Please stay safe. f
Best of luck with all you seek!
Always Treasure the Adventure!
