Treasure Hunters

Any treasure hunters in here??
Just heard about this today, Forrest Fenn, an 82 year old New Mexico millionaire buried a chest full of gold coins and other gems worth millions and then told the public to go search for it. Sounds like fun, right?
Wonder if it's true. He's saying that americans spend too much time watching their TV's and rarely go out nowadays. He published clues as to where it is. I read somewhere that he has a weird kind of map too. Although I haven't seen that yet. His website crashed so he gave the clues to MSNBC.

As I have gone alone in there
And with my treasures bold,
I can keep my secret where,
And hint of riches new and old.

Begin it where warm waters halt
And take it in the canyon down,
Not far, but too far to walk.
Put in below the home of Brown.

From there itís no place for the meek,
The end is drawing ever nigh;
Thereíll be no paddle up your creek,
Just heavy loads and water high.

If youíve been wise and found the blaze,
Look quickly down, your quest to cease
But tarry scant with marvel gaze,
Just take the chest and go in peace.

So why is it that I must go
And leave my trove for all to seek?
The answers I already know
Iíve done it tired, and now Iím weak

So hear me all and listen good,
Your effort will be worth the cold.
If you are brave and in the wood
I give you title to the gold.

Happy hunting!

TW should do this Treasure hunt overland expedition

does he seem legit?
Forrest Fenn

Behind the adobe walls of his Santa Fe compound, inside the red, pantry-size steel vault that protects some of his most valuable pieces, Fenn says he opened an antique lockbox and began to fill it with more than a million dollars’ worth of treasure. He tossed in ancient figurines, a 17th-century Spanish ring, and turquoise beads excavated from a cliff dwelling near Mesa Verde. He added American eagle gold coins, gold nuggets, a vial of gold dust, two gold discs, and “a lot of jewelry,” including rubies, sapphires, and diamonds. Among these wonders he included a copy of his own autobiography, rolled and stuffed into an ancient olive jar. Then he went “into the mountains north of Santa Fe,” Fenn says, and hid the lockbox, to be found by anyone who can decipher the clues embedded in a 24-line poem - See more at: http://www.thedailybeast.com/newswee....NDowDTko.dpuf

It may be close to a cliffside, or a waterfall.

The end is drawing ever nigh;
There’ll be no paddle up your creek,
Just heavy loads and water high.

Close to a hot springs for the warm water and then feeds into a river and then into a waterfall.

I was just thinking. If somebody finds this treasure, will you tell the world about it or just keep it to yourself? You know, taxes and all. hehehe, for all we know it's been found already.

I search for treasure in different ways. "One man's trash is another man's treasure". I look for old collectables people are getting rid of that are worth something.
