    Very well said. Sometimes it seams almost surreal.

    Thank-you, Forrest and Jenny.

    I have things I found and I always tell myself that this can be worth something some day. Recalling now, some things I still have will never be sold. It is all real to me.

      I am up to no good again. So after I had some pie I put together another short video. I imagine that I could have pie 3 times a day and make more videos. Anyway, my sweetie pie for whom I love dearly, likes what I do. My next one is a going to be a good one from our trip to New Mexico.

      Enjoy posters….

        What great memories, and very nice way you put it together (Coldplay is one of my favorites in the modern world). You certainly did a lot of traveling during that trip; was that your honeymoon? Great composition of the shots (all the way to the PI on the tree at 0:30). Glad you were able to get at least one with you in it; Your unattended plate at 1:40 brings back memories of “Hey, let me get a quick picture”.

        Thanks for sharing, good luck on your next trip,

        • Geydelkon says:

          Thanks Astree,

          Yes, those were a mix of pictures of all our trips into Montana, Colorado and Wyoming. I still have many pictures to show everyone of our Colorado trip heading down into New Mexico that I am not ready to release yet. That will be the best of the best. I have taken may trips seeking the treasure chest. I suggest to all the chasers to take pictures and video of everything while searching. A picture is worth a thousand words.

          I still all have countless hours of video that I am still reviewing. Some of my pictures and video were ruined when the camera fell into the dogs water dish. We may have to head back to Yellowstone to take more shots. We are saving our money so we can take all the grandkids in 2017. I think we will need to rent a bus at the rate they are popping out.

          We are still planning more trips down into southern New Mexico to go searching for the past. I am now interested in looking for explores of the past coming up through New Mexico. So I am doing a lot of reading lately. I am reading a book called “Apache Gold and Yaqui Silver”. I am almost done with it. I talk to my wife of what I found interesting in the book and now she wants to read it. Now with Google Earth, I have been plotting the stories locations which is a great tool to use. One can see patterns of travels long forgotten. This year Google Earth released a very good resolution of many areas. Is that the treasure chest I see? Then we will pass it on to anyone who would like to read it as well. Just email me if you would like to get the book.

          Have a great day,

    If it’s in your heart it’s as real as can be.

  4. Forrest Fenn says:

    Thanks for posting those words Jenny. It is true that I hid the treasure chest with its contents that have been amply described. I hope all searchers will let it rest until spring when the mountains are more friendly.

    • into says:

      Hi Forrest, Thanks for your comment and I hope too that all searchers will stay warm, cozy and snuggly over the winter. Happy New Year to you !

    • locolobo says:

      Yes Forrest, the pictures do present a well-organized and descriptive “table-of-contents”!! 🙂

      Just when the flames of imagination seem to be flickering out, you throw on a juniper log and they blaze brightly!!

      I hope you have a healthy and fun-filled New Year!!

    • RC says:

      Yes, Mr, Fenn I wish searchers would stop heading out there,driving in this dangerous weather,and probably listening to their favorite tunes on the radio. The chest more than likely will be in there, waiting for the somebody to put the pieces together to this puzzle. I wish I could ask Leonard Simon Nimoy where you hid the chest, but since he already past away he can’t help us. Thank you Mr. Fenn for making this the ride of my life. RC.

    • cynthia says:

      But Forrest, on Dec 11th you said: “If you know precisely where it is you can probably retrieve it in any weather”. The word “Still” means wwwh is frozen now…so I can ice skate across the inlet to my blaze to get the treasure, instead of wading across the stream! How cool…literally.

      • Kathryn says:

        Perhaps searchers are searching and it should not be searched for in any weather. But to retrieve may be different and could probably be retrieved in any weather. To search and to retrieve may be very different IMO.

    • Chris says:

      Thanks Forrest,
      I have gone over it all so many times and I don’t believe it is realistic to retrieve it until spring.It is possible but it’s very dangerous. I will email you when I have it and will be coming to meet with you immediately thereafter. Someplace where there are no cameras if you don’t mind. Thank you.


      • Chris says:

        Yes I will be giving you your bracelet back. I am hoping the IOU is there though. I will need it for many reasons. Including PCGS and a new place to live. Many people know where I live right now and my lady has no protection from them. I know you stated you don’t remember if you put it in there or not. I am hoping you did. Thanks Forrest.


  5. James says:

    Mr. Fenn,
    Some of us never doubted your integrity or that the chest is not out there. Your words hold wisdom and knowledge that I listen to intently and others would do well to heed your advise.

  6. Freind says:

    Nice to hear from you Forrest . The mountains have been getting hit pretty hard this year, more snow than I have seen in a long time; its deep. Guess I won’t be post-holing in the snow anytime soon. And yes, they have been amply described!

  7. Onuat says:

    Its the real deal. I love this Friday gathering,s. Thanks Jenny and Forrest.

  8. astree says:

    remember, it’s rill steal. Or is it ?

  9. Carolyn says:

    I believe and always have. Many more warm winters to you Forrest! Hope that Jenny is going to Fennborree this year too.

  10. JohnR says:

    Yes. wait for spring and or summer… but still dress warm? bring water and a gps.

  11. Thomas D says:

    I heard Mr. Fenn tell my wife and friends that the treasure is indeed very real. That’s good enough for me!

  12. 23kachinas says:

    The definition of REAListic is someone who has a good grip on the REAlity of a situation and understands what can and cannot be done, something that is a practical, achievable idea, or something that resembles the actual truth about life.

    Of course it’s REAL if you’re REAListic.

  13. JohnR says:

    Why would anybody look for a treasure that wasn’t real?

  14. The Count says:

    Fenn sure likes to use a lot of those commas

  15. colokidd says:

    Who provides the accompanying pics to the weekly words, Jenny or Forrest?

  16. earl says:

    real or fake, probably took out in a field dumped covered 8ft of top soil. you ppl better off discussing china razing minimum wage. not going ta happen

  17. Onuat says:

    When someone says your dreaming.😴Remember that dreams do come true.😃

  18. Geydelkon says:

    It is cold up here in the mountains today. As a searcher, It will definitely slow me down for a while. Boy, I am getting older. 🙂

    • geydelkon says:

      I left my post too early. The wife and I went to see the movie Revenant. We were very pleased and it brought back memories. All we can say it was a top notch movie and that it was in a very cold setting. I highly recommend this movie for those whom are wanting a hint to a clue and I didn’t get to eat any popcorn.


      This is our last post. See you all at the Fennboree….
