Ten Questions to Determine the Viability of a Forrest Fenn Treasure Solution


This is the list of 10 questions (and acceptable answers) we (A Gypsy’s Kiss) use to determine the credibility and/or viability of one of our solutions to finding the treasure Forrest Fenn hid somewhere in the mountains north of Santa Fe. These are OUR questions, and very much a by-product of the belief that Fenn hid the treasure in New Mexico – but they can be adapted by searchers looking in all, any, or other states.

  1. Could an 80 year old man, carrying a 22-pound load, make the trip to and from your anticipated location of the treasure without putting himself at risk? (Yes.)
  2. Is the anticipated location of the treasure in a place where you believe Forrest Fenn would hide his treasure, and perhaps, even lay down to die? (Yes.)
  3. Is your anticipated location of the treasure in the Rocky Mountains between 8.25 miles North of Santa Fe, New Mexico and New Mexico’s border with Colorado? (Yes.)
  4. Is your anticipated location of the treasure at an altitude of greater than 5,000 feet but less than 10,200 feet? (Yes.)
  5. Will the anticipated location of your solution be in a low-trafficked area? (Yes.)
  6. Is your anticipated location of the treasure on BLM, National Forest or State Forest administered property? (Yes.)
  7. Can you provide a geographically precise location of the intersection of “where warm waters halt” and “the canyon down?” (Yes.)
  8. Is the entire travel distance, from the intersection of “where warm waters halt” and “the canyon down” to the anticipated location of the treasure less than 3 miles? (Yes.)
  9. Can you leave Santa Fe, and drive to your anticipated starting point in other than a specialized off-road vehicle, and return to Santa Fe in less than 12 hours? (Yes.)
  10. Are the logistics of this solution possible for the team? (Yes.)

  1. I’m sorry I have been out of the loop for a few months, but in your question 2 why did you say that if your anticipated location of the treasure is in the Rocky Mountains between 8.25 miles North of Santa Fe, New Mexico and New Mexico’s border with Colorado? (Yes.)
    When did the search area shrink to just New Mexico. If I have missed something could you please add a link or something. If thats the case then I need to head to NM right away to check the area I have plotted out.
    Thanks.

  2. Thank you Toby. That was a big help! Keep up the good work. You inspire us all.

  3. I have a question about your LANDER recon. You photos are great. But did you guys ever post the BLM maps on your site that show where private property lines are? I’m going to be up there and was hoping to scope it out beforehand.
