Breaking News: Fenn Issues Awaited Safety Advisory

By Forrest Fenn, June 29, 2017

“When I said the treasure was not hidden in Utah or Idaho it was my plan not to narrow the search area further. But in the light of a recent accident, and in the interest of safety, I feel it necessary to alter that plan.

“The treasure chest is not under water, nor is it near the Rio Grande River. It is not necessary to move large rocks or climb up or down a steep precipice, and it is not under a man-made object.

“Please remember that I was about 80 when I made two trips from my vehicle to where I hid the treasure.

“Please be cautious and don’t take risks.

My guess is that in the last 7 years more than 250,000 people have searched for the treasure without suffering any serious injuries. I invite you to add your name to that list. The search is supposed to be fun.”

    • He’s said it a couple of times before this. So, it isn’t quite that new, but it is what we call an “anti-clue,” like “…the treasure is not in Idaho or Utah.” It effectively reduces the size of the search area.

      • When did Forrest say “It is not near the Rio Grande”? I don’t recall hearing it before. If that’s the case, why search Pilar ?

      • Apparently you didn’t notice that the blog post on which you’re commenting was written by Forrest. Not me. So, a. he just said it. And, b. I just read it.

  1. Interesting that he noted that HE was about 80 when he hid the treasure. That should provide some more clarity around the actual time box of when the treasure was hidden.
