New to the search for Fenn’s treasure? THEN READ THIS FIRST!

The treasure chest Forrest Fenn hid somewhere in the mountains north of Santa Fe, New Mexico containing gold, jewels and ancient artifacts from his personal collection. Then, he challenged you to find it.

DANGER, WILL ROBINSON, DANGER!

As of this writing, four people have died looking for Fenn’s treasure. To make sure you’re not number five, take the advice Fenn has been giving since he started this: “Don’t go where a 79 or 80 year old man, alone, with a 22 pound load, couldn’t go.” If you find yourself rappelling down a cliff face, whitewater rafting, facing off with a grizzly bear or wading a chest-high river at spring runoff – you’re in the wrong place.

Found out about the treasure, eh?

You’re here because you just read an article or saw a television program or a YouTube video about the treasure Forrest Fenn hid somewhere in the mountains north of Santa Fe. So, we’re going to save you a treasure chest full of time, effort, frustration and money. Oh, and P.S.: As of this date, the treasure is still out there waiting to be found.

10 Steps to Starting Your Search for the Fenn Treasure.

Before you do anything else related to the treasure, do exactly the following:

  1. Click on the “Fenn Interviews” link above. These are the top 4 Fenn interviews. We recorded 2 of them. Watch them at least 3 times each. Start your “Fenn Treasure Hunt Notebook.” Most important: get to know Forrest Fenn. He has a plan, and you finding the treasure is part of it.
  2. Click on the “Fenn’s Poem” link above. Read the poem at least five times. Read the text version of the poem at least five times. Then watch the playlist of videos we’ve prepared for you. By the way, we’ve added a scan of the “poem page” from my copy of Fenn’s book – with my original notes that set us off on our first recon back in 2013. You can see the photos from that recon here.
  3. Listen to this audio track. It’s an interview with Forrest Fenn conducted by NZ Radio in 2013. About the middle of the interview, Fenn tells us, probably in a slip, that the first clue is “Begin it where warm waters halt.” Don’t ignore him, and don’t let anybody try to talk you out of believing it. Make more notes.
  4. Get comfortable with tarryscant.com – they’ve collected all of Fenn’s words in a searchable database. Just for the fun of it, search for the phrase “little girl in india.” You’ll learn something new about the treasure hunt if you do.
  5. Subscribe to our blog; this one: agypsyskiss.com We update it several times a week with articles, interviews, commentary and videos.
  6. Subscribe to our YouTube channel: agypsyskiss.tv We add several videos a week to our portfolio of nearly 300 related exclusively to Fenn and the Fenn treasure.
  7. Watch this video, then put together your thoughts on the first two clues. Fenn says you can figure them out at your computer. Check out the YouTubers with Fenn-related channels. Subscribe to them, and wait for them to go live. Then you can present your ideas in the live chat. You’ll get answers you may or may not like.
  8. Read this blog post. It tells you exactly what to do when you find the treasure. Notes!
  9. Optional: Buy Fenn’s first memoir, “The Thrill of the Chase.” You can order a copy from the Collected Works Bookstore in Santa Fe for the original price of $35 plus shipping. It contains the poem, and stories about his life. You can read it in a day if you had to.
  10. Plan and go out on your first recon. You will discover at least two things:
    a. your solution was crazy wrong, and
    b. the problem is much bigger than you imagined.

No worries. It happens to everybody. Oh, and – take pictures! Send them to us! We share them with the community on our YouTube channel. agypsyskiss@gmail.com

You are now, officially, one of the 350,000 (by Fenn’s estimate) members of the “I don’t know where the hell it is either!” Fenn Treasure Hunters Club. And, if another searcher tells you they know where it is – they’re lying. No one but Fenn knows where it is.

But, don’t be discouraged. Sooner or later, someone is going to find it, and it might as well be you!

Good luck,

Shelley Carney and Toby Younis

John Wayne Bobbit Donates 1kg(!) .999 Silver Coin to Jamie Jourdan Raffle!

Click on the image for a more detailed, higher resolution image.


Although there have been a number of generous donations made to the Jamie Jourdan Raffle by members of the Fenn searcher community, our viewer, subscriber and friend, John Wayne Bobbit donated a 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) .999 fine silver coin from Armenia. In his email to me offering the donation, John wrote

“Toby & Shelly I would like to donate this coin for the raffle. 2 pounds of pure silver, Armenian coin with a Noah’s Ark on it. Uncultivated. It has a dove carrying an olive branch. Representing peace and Hope. The Ark represents the Forrest Fenn community. Reaching out to our fellow searchers in need. You can add it to the raffle? That coin is special and hopefully along with the other raffle items will inspire people to chip in during this tragic situation.”

We are very grateful to John for his generous donation.

If you want to participate in the raffle, a donation of $25 will get you one entry into the raffle drawing. You can donate at http://paypal.me/jjdiggins You can get more information on the raffle at http://bit.ly/jjdiggins

Special Announcement re: Fenn Treasure Hunter, Jaime Jordan (jjdiggins)


http://www.paypal.me/jjdiggins

Our fellow Forrest Fenn treasure hunter, Jamie Jordan, and her family lost their home and their business to the raging Mendocino, California fire, now the largest in the State’s history. Jamie is most commonly known on the forums as jjdiggins.

While, eventually, insurance will help them to rebuild their lives, they are in the meantime dealing with all the other issues that comes with losing everything in what is, effectively, a moment’s notice.

A group of fellow searchers, with the help of Forrest Fenn, has established an account at which donations can be made.

They have also arranged for a raffle drawing to be held in Jamie’s name using the above account.

Here’s how it works: for a minimum contribution of $25 your name will be entered into a raffle drawing for a set of donated items, including the following:

Fenn treasure search medallion, serial number 001, donated by Fenn himself.
A copy of The Thrill of the Chase, First Edition, signed by Forrest Fenn
A copy of each of Too Far to Walk and Once Upon a While, both signed by Forrest Fenn

You can enter as many times as you wish, but each entry must be at least $25 in order to participate in the raffle. To qualify, your contribution must be made before 5pm MDT on August 31, 2018.

You can enter the drawing at www.paypal.me/jjdiggins I’ve posted the link in the description box below.

Mike Cowling, cowlazars on YouTube, is responsible for managing the online raffle.

We will provide regular updates on our scheduled programming as more information becomes available.

Please contribute what you can, I have no doubt that Jamie and her family will appreciate your kindness.

Finally, please share this video with your family, friends and social networks, so that they, too, can have a chance at the drawing while helping Jamie and her family to recover. Thank you.
