The treasure has been found

It was under a canopy of stars in the lush, forested vegetation of the Rocky Mountains and had not moved from the spot where I hid it more than 10 years ago. I do not know the person who found it, but the poem in my book led him to the precise spot.

I congratulate the thousands of people who participated in the search and hope they will continue to be drawn by the promise of other discoveries. 

So the search is over. Look for more information and photos in the coming days. f

The treasure chest was found by a man I did not know and had not communicated with since 2018.

The bracelet on my arm was wet when found. The silver tarnished black.

Removing objects from the chest. It is darker than it was ten years ago when I left it on the ground and walked away.

The finder wants me to remain silent and I always said the finder gets to make those two calls. Who and where. f

Many of the searchers for my treasure had solves that seemed to neatly fit the clues in my poem. Then when the finder found and retrieved the treasure, other searchers wondered how close they had been to the right spot. Because I promised the finder I would not reveal who found it or where, I have remained mostly silent.

However, the finder understands how important some closure is for many searchers, so today he agreed that we should reveal that the treasure was found in Wyoming. Until he found the treasure, the treasure had not moved in the 10 years since I left it there on the ground, and walked away.

Perhaps today’s announcement will bring some closure to those whose solves were in New Mexico, Colorado, or Montana.

To all of those who did not find the treasure, we hope that you got some enjoyment from the chase. f


 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy 90th Forrest……

Thanks for being here Forrest. I am in awe of your accomplishments and sincerely appreciate your treasure hunt…it provoked friendships and has provided adventure and joy for hundreds of thousands of searchers…including me!!

Where in WY?…


JULY 2020
by dal

 

Where in Wyoming do you think the chest was hidden?

WY

Click on map to see it larger

Don’t get into the weeds here. Keep your response simple. The goal is to determine which part of WY is the most popular guess for where the chest was located…

Simple answers on this page are best…no solutions…no details…just a simple geographic description of the neighborhood…

For instance, you might say:

Near the Madison River in Yellowstone Nat’l Park
or
Along the Green River south of Rock Springs
or
Near Moose outside of Teton Nat’l Park

 

Please don’t use locations outside WY.
