    Very well done Jack. Thank you for taking the time to upload your analytical thought process on your solve – so that everyone could follow along – in detail. There are way too many who play the "I've got a secret" game – showing their frustration and attention needs. I too love the poem puzzle architect solves, but, obviously you branched off the rabbit hole somewhere.

    I think the biggest obstacle is our human nature to jump ahead and confirm our initial thoughts, no matter how disciplined. A person could decide to use only the poem and map, or include ALL of Forrest's extended statements as base information in the solve problem. The problem starts when deciding to add some of his additional statements – only ones that fit a notion.

    You quoted some of his comments but ignored other things he said. What about: he would throw his bones down there on top of the treasure and that it might not be found or disturbed for 100 years or more, that it was not near a trail and no-one would accidentally run across it, that it was one of his favorite spots, etc., etc.

    I believe a person either has to clearly and completely decide to either use just the poem and map, or use everything he says too. No picking certain words or phrases he utters, or confirming ideas while working. After the fact, yeah – that will be fun for everyone.

    Thanks for the brain food. M

    Fenn specifically said that the treasure was not in a grave, so that's why I'm unsure about this solution and he also says Do NOT mess with his poem, he says the clues are in consecutive order and you shouldn't try to rearrange them. I'm not trying to put you or your theories down, I'm simply just trying to help. I don't want you or anyone to be mislead

    i think you need a boat to get to the treasure, 'put in' below the home of Brown may refer to where to launch. Not too far but too far to walk may mean that it is too far to walk but not far by boat.

    Wow, you put a lot of work into this video and for that I congratulate you. For coming up with a solution as to where the treasure is buried, you FAILED.

    The Ute museum in Montrose underwent massive renovation and ground extension last year. The area around it is populated and getting more so all the time, houses and retail are moving in. This was the case even ten years ago (about when target and penney's went in there). I can't imagine Fenn would have put his treasure there and not have anyone find it, even accidentally (which he has said is impossible).

    An hour of reading? You made a video with reading. Why not just post the actual text for people to read? This is just silly.

    This is why you haven't found it. You are overthinking it. Fenn is not a poet. His own words: "a normal person" would be able to follow the clues and they will be "confident" once they are on the trail.

    You all should have kept it simple. I know EXACTLY where the treasure is hidden. Unfortunately it is too far for me to afford the travel.

    This is the stupidest waste of time. You are wrong and you haven't figured it out why waste everyone's time? You stretch every idea.

    Very intriguing and certainly refreshing compared to some of the Billy Bob videos out there.

    This vid is very well thought out. I genuinely believe it is a word/crypto puzzle that will reveal something like coordinates. I think the verses are cleverly constructed to sound like they are real world physical clues when infact they are a charade for the real puzzle that anyone without knowledge of the area could solve. The only problem with that theory I guess is why have no cryto experts solved it yet if it can be done without visiting the area to solve the clues.

    man when i start reading your explanation i thought you got the clues right but you seems lost it through the circle of the poem,but i believe that the man is honest and i am hitting the road to the end of it

    I think it is less likely that Fenn intentionally channeled an Ute Chief, and more likely that you did, my friend. You are very lucky to have made such a meaningful spiritual connection.

    if anyone wants to look in the yellowstone national park area with me I've got a couple of ideas of were it could be. join me and split it 25/25 hid the other 50 % and write a new poem to have people search again ?

    Jack – You certainly spent a lot of time on this. I too have thought the poem is that of two voices. I also believe the poem does not really start with the first (or even second) stanza.

    There are things Fenn said though that makes your solution hard to swallow. He said that no specialized knowledge is needed.

    Your solve seems to require a quite detailed knowledge of the Ute and also Ouray.

    I would be genuinely interested in you response.

    Regards,
    Scott

    I like the way you think, however, this explanation requires special knowledge of the Utes. Forrest has stated that no special knowledge is required. Only the poem, the book "The thrill of the Chase" and a map. You did get my brain working on a different direction, however, so thank you for that.

    The most convoluted story I've ever heard. You are doing exactly what Forrest said NOT to do.

    I don't care if anyone finds the treasure now if this turns out to be the beautiful story of history and poetry Forrest really meant to leave us with. It really is a modern day treasure of writing👍

    There are number of twin names. Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, and Grand Canyon west of Santa Fe. I found Yellowstone Park even in the city New York! It also has Forest everything: School, Hospital, you name it. Has airport nearby. Has two water reservoirs ( too cease). Has baseball area with two huge dots (colon) One dot is number 15. There is Road 66 ( Forest said some people went 200 feet away from the spot. 200 feet is 66 yards. Road 66). One can find this poem's clues most likely even on a Moon.

    AZ. Hopi House Horseshoe Mesa. Cave of the Domes. Mooney Falls. Mine with bats and radiation signs nearby, looking like propellers or blazes.

    I was wise, I was so wise I was very bright to find the blaze. But I am beyond the blaze and looking at his idol.

    A story of words and a story of pictures, a picture tells a thousand words, think how many words are in 9 pictures.

    The "spirit person", or second view, was posted on Dal's blog and Chase Chat over a year ago. I do believe it to be the correct path; you are late to the game.

    However, I do not believe in the "grid" approach. I do think you are on the right track though. Go back to the poem and walk through it as if being instructed where to leave/take the chest. – not where to find it.

    "Take the chest and go in peace" is the spirit telling you (Fenn) where to go next. You are Fenn with chest in hand and the spirit is telling you where to go so that you may rest in peace.

    X (AKA Q)

    I actually have a good idea!! OK every one listen up!! You guys pool together and get a small bank account going to pay me to go look for the gold, when I find it we split it all equally!!. This would probably take at least a few people to agree upon.
    I dont make much money right now only about ? $33 a year so just pay me that much and if I dont find anything in 5 yrs then we call it quits or start more funding for it. Any takers just email I am serious I read a lot of people tell me they dont have time or health to go look for it , but if you have a little money then why not pay some one to go do it for you?
    You can email me if you really want to go look for this Treasure. [email protected]

    It's not there. Anywhere. I've done an extensive search. So, perhaps you found it for yourself, or perhaps someone else has?

    Very interesting approach Jack, you must have done an incredible amount of research. Is there a way to get printable version of your presentation? There's a lot there to follow and it would help if one could refer back to some of your points.
