Sean Malloy?@Dale Richards? I think that comment was blatant tongue in cheek

Laurie James?have to? leave for appt. Watch later. Thanks for the tips.

Black Water87?ok?

Bill Gorman?At my treasure finding? banquette, Crow will be served!

David Dow?@AGK: Do you think that he could have instructions in the chest how to find a secondary treasure. That one he is watching. Thus, he will know that the? chest has been found.

Jon Polasek?@AGK: Do you know what kind of vehicles Fenn has driven in the past? 10+ years?

Dale Richards?Maybe Sean, or? maybe bike = motorcycle.

Black Water87?helicopter s?

Jimmy Fast?Jeep?

Mark Payne?Hi from? Oklahoma

J C?David Charles what? state is your blaze?

Bill Gorman?Red Riding? Hood was Meek

Timothy Alkire?Jon.? FF has been driving a 4×4 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Joey Pero?AGK I’ve been following the treasure hunt since 13′ or 14′. I’m planning a trip with my dad for our first BOTG (and? a cool vacation).

Black Water87?coolan?

Cindy Guess?AGK:? Have you changed your mind about Rev Tolby?

Paul Ammons

AGK: What is your best knowledge? and solutions of the clue JHLAWH

Paul McGinty?AGK? hahaha

Paul Ammons?Water? table???

phil?AGK: How are you? incorporating traveling through space and circumstance in your solution?

Bill Gorman?A lake and ski lifts?

Dale Richards?@AGK: What geological papers have you read defining “warm water”? or “warm waters”? I read one last week defining all deep lakes and deep rivers as Warm Water and shallow streams & draws as cold water.

kinsol?AGK: Does the Cimarron River? WWWH solution not necessarily involve a dam (Eagle Nest Lake/Dam) as the start beginning of the ‘Warm Waters’ even if it isn’t the location of WWWH? Fenn has said no dam.

Ryan Lowe?@AGK: What led you to move away from the western interior seaway being wwwh and focusing on New Mexico fishing regulations? instead?

Timothy Alkire?AGK. Heavy Loads and water? high also goes into a Cistern. (large storage Tank or Tanks)

MR G?AGK-What do you think the lines “Your effort will be worth the? cold” and “If you are brave and in the wood” mean?

Seannm Seannm?@MR G: look up? cold cognition.

Dale Richards?@AGK: Have your searches lead you to any locations that you connected? with personally? Maybe a place or places you want to return to, not looking for the treasure?

akash gabriel?Brave nd in? the wood, i give u title to the gold

Jason Kemeny?is the 8.5 miles? north of santa fe something that should be taken as fact?

Timothy Alkire?mr.G.? you have to had found the TC to answer that

Dan Kirk?AGK:? What were your Warm Waters Halt locations when searching in states north of New Mexico?

Eric Schmidt?AGK – nothing? personal, just an observation..

T. Lee Jones?Hello From Baltimore, MD?

Dale Richards?AGK: Why do not look in National Parks or Monuments? Legal problems are likely no matter where he put it. You already said you will take and not tell, so why limit? your search?

Belva Jenkins?Hello? from Chattanooga TN

Bill Gorman?poem covers about 40? miles

Ryan Lowe?@AGK: Do you assume you can find HOB on google earth or just WWWH and canyon down and? HOB must be identified with BOTG?


Eric Schmidt?AGK – I saw that documentary. It was good. Doubt Ron Brown Realty? will be around in 1000 years, but who knows… ??

amy smith?Kids are? very small. 2 and 5.

Bill Gorman?HOB is visible on Google Earth but not labeled.?

Timothy Alkire?Bill Gorman. my solve is exactly 48.6mi start to finish.?

Sean Malloy?Documentary was “Finding The Blaze ( 2018) by Rob Wiltsey – it was? very good

Seannm Seannm?@Jason Kemey, the comment was the treasure is located more that 66,000? links north of Santa Fe, and after some presumed translation it came out to be 8.25 miles. So yes it should be considered fact.

J C?agk why don’t you ask David Charles davio 22 which state he found? it in

Steven Merillat?No Indian? Land ?????

Bill Gorman?Full? time RV’n on the hunt.

Man In The Barn?@Stephen Johns Sorry no I don’t. Check out Cowlazars.? He has vlogs on multiple searches and might be able to point you to one.

amy smith?Agk: maybe we need to answer the question that FF asks in? the poem before we can use the clues….????

Nikolai Strov?Hello fellow Fennlings ???

Bill Gorman?Many Omegas and? many blazes!

Eric Schmidt?Amy – what? question?

Timothy Alkire?Bill G. are you on the? hunt now?

Seannm Seannm?@Eric, the one that ends in a? ? (Wink)

Steven Merillat?Many? Omegas only 1 blaze that counts

Mary Green?agree on HLWH, water? tank

Bill Gorman?I can be in? the Fennzone in 1.5 hours

Eric Schmidt?OHHH? ??

Bill Gorman?I? camp closer in Summer

Crow Dudley?AGK ?hello from southern Indiana… Zero times.

Mary Green?@Nikolai? Strov, hi to you

Seannm Seannm?@Eric & Amy. That question? is a figure of speech called a hypophora.

Virgil Caine is my name?@eric shmidt, we searched that horseshoe, (omega) in the highway there. Found a grave with a wood marker and hole alonside it. I think? It was where somebocy buried a pet.

Steven Merillat?1-3 clues? Google 4-7 research 8-9 boots on the ground

Timothy Alkire?[message retracted]

Nikolai Strov?Nice to see you Mary! Hope you are doing well and enjoying an? early spring ??

Bill Gorman?If you’ve been wise and found the waters high he told you to? look for then you’ve found the first blaze. Then you have many more blazes before you find the blaze. He did not make it easy

kinsol?@Ryan Lowe thanks for asking that, I was meaning to ask? the same question.

Steven Merillat?Toby’s right IMO that all clues must be followed in order and if? you don’t have a HOB don’t leave your house.

David Charles Davio22?AGK.**Seen many searchers, inclueding the Brits. All to date 45,000 miles. Sidelined by a deer on? BLM land* Compass only Dead reconding **Yes when I find it I will Break the Find on your Show. How fun

Bill Gorman?Two Omegas? on the map, u in Mountains

Ryan Lowe?@kinsol No? problem! Do you mean about the western interior seaway or the HOB question?

amy smith?@virgil Caine? ????

kinsol?@Ryan Lowe sorry, yeah? the western interior seaway

Mary Green?”if you don’t have a HOB don’t leave your house.” yep that? fooled me 4x, and prob a 5th this may

Joe Mazzocco?Greetings? from Pueblo guys, Love the show!!

Bill Gorman?Each drawing in the book is of a blaze in the? canyon walls.

Paul Ammons?AGK:? water table??

Steven Merillat?ya bill whats that? 3rd symbol with those 2 omegas

Belva Jenkins?Do rattlesnakes go above 8,000 ft.?

Alexander Koch?AGK – Hi guys. Do you know if Forrest puts any additional effort into keeping his email save from? being hacked?

Ryan Lowe?@kinsol I thought it was a pretty? clever idea from Toby and I like it more so than fishing regulations

Nikolai Strov?I agree with you Bill.. I am just curious if a pin pointer can still pick? up that deep in snow

Joe Mazzocco?no? Belva…… to high for rattlesnakes

Mary Green?@ nick,spring is nice,cant wait? until may, for my only hunt this year

Virgil Caine is my name?@joe mazzocco,? has anyone told the rattlesnakes that?

Belva Jenkins?Thanks Jo, that’s what i thought.?

Seannm Seannm

Forrest has said he hid the treasure before the poem was complete. So what parts of the poem, do you believe, were completed after hiding the chest??

Eric Schmidt?Seannm – he rewrote the poem because his? cancer went into remission

Joe Mazzocco?nobody I know? speaks rattle

kinsol?@Ryan Lowe It was very clever. I grew up in a family of geologists, so it was right up my alley.?

Jimmy Fast?I think he hid the chest first to see if it would be found. When it? wasn’t then he filled it with gold

Seannm Seannm?@AGK, consider the? tense nature of the first line in the poem.

Dale Richards?AGK: In your opinion, how big? does a blaze need to be to make it not feasible to remove?

David Charles Davio22?AGK * I have watch the Book Store vid every2days or so . Do you get anything from his sence of humor.? Then? how that translates to the book.

Nikolai Strov?@Mary Green take me with you! I’ll? share my spot with you ??

Nikolai Strov?Did he ever say that these people/searchers were physically there? Did what he said, imply that?? I feel like there is some Jedi going on there

amy smith?Omega can? mean The End

phil?I thought put in was to get in the water until recently…now I think? it means to put in for the night

Bill Gorman?I agree Jimmy, he tested? the spot for a year or two with just the box there or a test box.

Nikolai Strov?500/200 is hard to gauge on the ground, let? alone a photo

Seannm Seannm?@Eric Schmidt, “I followed the clues in the poem when I hid the treasure, but I hid it before the poem was complete. (Completed). I am of the opinion that stanzas 2, 3 and 4 are those he? “followed”

amy smith?@virgil Cain? – where are you from?

Edward Owen?AGK is it possible he took 2 trips on 2 separate? days to hide treasure? Is that a possibility?

Virgil Caine is my name?@amy smith Iowa? and you?

Seannm Seannm?@Eric Schmidt, So? once he returned he then wrote stanza 1, hence the tense nature of “As I have gone alone in there…..”

Nikolai Strov?How? long is an afternoon?

Bill Gorman?He must have? tested his spot with something less valuable before eating the treasure.

amy smith?@virgil Mississippi but grew? up in arkansas

Seannm Seannm?@Bill,? I agree with that thought

Bill Gorman?Eating the treasure? ????

Eric Schmidt?@Seannm Seannm where did you get the quote to which you? are referring?

Joe Mazzocco?OMG!!!!! he? ate the Treasure?

AJ 21?[message retracted]

Seannm Seannm?@Bill, that testing may have confirmed the belief that no one will? stumble or happen upon it.

amy smith?@virgil – Just wondering if? you were into music

Bill Gorman?I use Wizards? to help me find it, the hills talk to me and point me in the right direction by looking for clues in plain sight

Mary Green?@Nikolai Strov, keep track? 123

Nikolai Strov?I stayed? the night near eagles nest

Bill Gorman?No dam where Warm Waters? halt but there is one at the home of brown covered in ice right now

Bryan Eagle?AGK took my 3 daughters to NM last year for multiple trips around Angel Fire, we learned? about how you can’t hide from pm mtn hailstorms, although we huddled under some ponderosa branches. gr8 times

Steve Smitherman?Amy Smith we are? neighbors im from alabama

Nikolai Strov?Roll Tide? Roll

Joe Mazzocco?boooooo?

Joel Lewicki?hey! better late than? never

Mary Green?@Nikolai? Strov @marygreen

David Charles Davio22?**AGK** AN 80 year ole man can only go down hill with 20 pound pack, and? with walking poles. On BLM land Did you all start with that ? Warm Halt! cool water begins. Your thoughts?

Bryan Eagle?Contd- We’re bringing extra rain gear next time, more water bottles and more small snacks. Breaks at high? altitudes for us lowlanders are a must!

Seannm Seannm?@Eric Schmidt, that quote was from periodic words on MW in June of 17. The site is currently down atm so? can’t provide link.

Bill Gorman?Miss Ford had a face like? a can opener! So does Fenn’s Totem!

Joey Pero?@AGK? IMO “effort will be worth the cold” = worth all the effort you put in during the winter working on the solve (cold months).

MR G?AGK–Do you believe there are hints within the poem, aside from the 9 direct clues given? What about any words in the poem meant to throw one? off?

Bill Gorman?Treasure is in? a summer rain forest

Mary Green?@Nikolai Strov gmail? dot

Virgil Caine is my name?@amy smith , how did you? guess? And I drove on the Danville train. ??

Seannm Seannm?@Joey Pero, effort,? it takes effort to listen good, but to hear is passive and takes no effort.

AJ 21?[message retracted]

Nikolai Strov?@Mary Green? strov910 @gmail .com ??

Joshua Weickum?Has Forrest ever been asked how old? “Brown”is?

Mary Green?listen good, is to hear?

Steven Merillat?10000 feet is? always cold

Nikolai Strov?When knowledge speaks, wisdom listens?

Seannm Seannm?@Mary, there is a distinct difference between hearing and listening good, my wife points it out to me often.?

amy smith?@virgil – I wish I’d known Levon before? he died. I’m from that area. Know all their songs.

Mary Green?Nikolai? Strov kk

David Charles Davio22?AGK * there are 166 words in the Poem.Times Steps from page 15? = 365.2 Is this away of referencing a compass?A clock?

Steven Merillat?@Joshua Weickum FF wouldn’t? answer that kind of question

AJ 21?[message retracted]

Edward Owen

AGK Do? you Think it is possible FF took 2 trips on 2 separate days to hide treasure? Is that at all a outside possibility, because Treasure was too heavy?

Bill Gorman?It’s in a public? R.O.W

Jimmy Fast?Two trips on? the same afternoon

Nikolai Strov?@Edward? Owen he has stated it was done in the same afternoon.. 2 trips to his vehicle in one afternoon

Mary Green?FF said he did it? in 1 afternoon 2 trips

Edward Owen?Thx!?

Steven Merillat?Lol,? Bill your gonna make some brains explode

amy smith?@steven? merillat – life is but a dream.

Bill Gorman?Find it? on the side of the road and you can keep it

Dan Kirk?AGK: Maybe Forrest’s reasoning was that the treasure? would be more secure in his hiding spot then leaving it in his car? Perhaps that’s why he took it first?

Aksarben?hey guys made it to the tail? end, but I’m here! 🙂

Joe Mazzocco?@ AGK How long does a drive to San Luis take from Sante Fe for you? What kind? of driver is Forrest, I’m guessing slow cruiser type enjoying the drive.

Aksarben?do? you think the chest is hidden withing 200-500feet from a trail or parking spot?

MrBmchapman?Hi Toby and Shelley! Love your videos and look forward to them each week- When did you guys first find out about the treasure and what? was it that drew you to it? -Brad

Nikolai Strov?My blaze is 500ft ???

Denise Bagley?[message retracted]

Mary Green?AGK we are good @ multi tasking? LOL

Bill Gorman?His Drawings are his trove to seek,? each is a blaze

Cheeky Lads?Message deleted by Jimmy Fast.View deleted message

Nikolai Strov?Thank you!?
Cheeky Lads was hidden by Jimmy Fast.

Bill Gorman?People within 200 feet, drove by?

Nikolai Strov?The 200ft? is inside the 500ft

Denise Bagley?[message retracted]


Have you discussed the “Brown Put-In” off hwy 89? Also, there is a? book that says Joe Meek was runoff by Indians at the mouth of Tom Miner’s creek, which is too far to walk and downstream from there. Any thoughts?

Sean Malloy?the clues did not exist, but the places the clues referred? to did

Bryan Schultz?The clues did not exist when I was a kid but most of the places the clues refer? to did

Joshua Weickum?do we have to have? money to ask a question?

Jimmy Fast?No?

Seannm Seannm?@joshua, no just? start with AGK

Steven Merillat?200ft to Parking lot – HOB, 1079 feet to? blaze area.

Joel Lewicki?Bryan has the correct quote – namely that? *most* of the places the clues refer to did

Joshua Weickum?thanks?

Mary Green?@Joshua? Weickum, no use AGK then Q

Aksarben?1500 miles? at 35mph LOL

Thomas Dye?@agk. I am from southern AL.? my camper doesn’t do good in cold weather. When does the summer season start in your area?

Bill Gorman?San Luis? about 60 miles from Taos

Jimmy Fast?AGK I see the super chat button now on my iphone?????

Bryan Schultz?Not sure where to put the chest after i go get it.? Under my pillow?

Joshua Weickum?AGK Do we know is there anyone has asked Forrest? how old any of the things referenced in the clue are? Specifically how long has it been since Brown first had a home

Nikolai Strov?It could be literal,? it could be figurative

J C?agk 0 botg. what’s the odds of me? finding it on the first trip.haha

AJ 21?[message retracted]

freckleface2?AGK: why do you think FF capitalized the “B” in brown? Must be more than fish? or bear indications, eh?

David Charles Davio22?AGK HAve you seen the videos? fromThe Bullalo Bill Center of the west, McCracken Research Library when Fenn was inter veiwed 2010.

Eric Schmidt?@J C? Good luck!!

Nikolai Strov?Why didn’t he capitalize Trove? ???

Steven Merillat?@AJ 21 yes and he? has stated that as late as last year, there is a search season

Nikolai Strov?I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow! See you next? time ??

Eric Schmidt?AGK: How do you look? at Snowmass? TO determine when you can get out to look?

Bill Gorman?I swam? in the Arkansas River on March 10, 2016

James Kruse?iPad donate $? is working also now

J C?thanks? Eric

ZYNGR?AGK So, can you? explain in more detail why are you against looking north of Yellowstone (Hwy 89)

Bill Gorman?Use Highway? cams

James Kruse?I’m in the iPad? app

David Dow?My iPhone 6, still no super chat. Just? using YouTube app.

Heather Guillen?AGK When was the very first time Fenn stepped foot into New Mexico??

Bill Gorman?A Mammoth Trunk is a Chest?

Joe Mazzocco?@ Eric Snow? could still be around till June.

Jimmy Fast?YouTube app? gray dollar sign

Bill Gorman?Elephants are Nature’s Treasure!?

Jon Polasek?@AGK Do you think? Quest to cease could be a reference to Questa, NM?

Je Ra?Zyngr: ff said something like best places to explore don’t have trails but some places aren’t safe? to do that like Yellowstone, he said specifically

Jarod Atchley?AGK What is your favorite part? of looking for the treasure?

An Average Person?AGK if “most” of the areas existed when he was a kid, which one(s) didn’t? Do you have something in your solution that? was created after FF was a kid?

Joshua Weickum?Sorry? there is a delay for me.

Steven Merillat???????????????????

marwkarl?AGK: if a Lucky? Swede find the treasure.. how do you suggest he does next?

ZYNGR?Thanks … fun channel???

MrBmchapman?Even though Forest didn’t? say…Do you think digging is required to find treasure if you had to guess?

Paul McGinty?@Bill Gorman?you hear bears coming, cats are quiet ……lol brilliant?

Jimmy Fast?I guess no?

Joe Mazzocco?no digging required?

James Kruse?God? I hope not

A Gypsy’s Kiss​Today’s program starts at 1pm MST.

Joel Lewicki​Good afternoon – welcome to the locus in quo!

Nikolai Strov​I smashed my phone on the ground yesterday.. I won’t be around as much :):

Paul McGinty​Good afternoon

Man In The Barn​Good Afternoon All

James Kruse​Hi guys

An Average Person​hey all

Peter Longan​hi

Jimmy Fast​Hi

Eric Schmidt​Good afternoon

Edward Owen​Hi Guys

Rick Plank​Hello from Cincinnati

Journeyman​Hi Guys


Jay Ell​top-o-the afternoon ya, boyo!

Aksarben​Hello from Omaha

clay spence​A Big Texas Happy Valentine’s back at you All!

Joey Pero​All men Shelly – I think you’ve found your audience !

Michael koen​Hello from NC

David Dow​Hello

Nikolai Strov​Joey isn’t even 21! 😉

Cindy Guess​Volume is low today

Crow Dudley​AGK.. hello from southern Indiana… You guys are awesome.

Eric Schmidt​Volume is good for me..

Cmonkeyification​Volume low on Shelley only

Aksarben​The person who has title owns it… Forrest has said that in his videos multiple times

Rick Plank​@AGK: I liked your desktop microphones much better.

Sandy Wolf​hello from West Virginia just want to say love your show

Joel Lewicki​for further research: https://repository.law.umich.edu/cgi/…

Dan Kirk​AGK: If you find the treasure, will it be difficult do do this show and pretend like it wasn’t you who found it?

Bill Gorman​audio was fine now sounds like Toby is in a barrel. Somebody just has a cheep computer with poor sound

RedneckExpress​Toby is loud and clear – Shelly you mic is still low

Nikolai Strov​He was of clear mind when he decided to trove his treasure

Tl Mattes​Somebody is in the office working, unable to turn it up full blast, Bill. Don’t talk bad about my sister!

Road Runners​Wado from the Osage Reservation in Oklahoma.

Nikolai Strov​YES

Steve Gaghagen​hello from snowy Kearney Nebraska

Eric Schmidt​They have new mikes this week..

Aksarben​Possession is 90% of ownership 😄

Joey Pero​Haha 37 but thank you !

Nikolai Strov​Thats my age too 😃

Denise Bagley​Title to the “gold” not the bracelet or the bronze chest.” That may be how he’ll know someone has found it.

RedneckExpress​Title to the gold is Also part of a final clue – IMO

Nikolai Strov​I believe it is someplace that is accessible to the public, you can NOT go looking for treasure in a national PARK.. These rules/laws are different in national FORRESTs

Denise Bagley​Do tell… Redneck

Nikolai Strov​Also, with all this said, this should narrow the search area/s down significantly

Bill Gorman​Forrest service cop told me I could keep it, sheriff said I could keep it, state trooper said I can keep it

Joel Lewicki​Article referenced: https://www.inc-cin.org/assets/pdf/ar…

Eric Schmidt​Bill – you preparing for your rebuttal?

Steve Gaghagen​isn’t national Park land public land set aside for us?

Nikolai Strov​Yes/no

RedneckExpress​DB: I believe Toby is accurate with the transfer of ownership verbiage, and also believe Numerous things in the poem mean 2 or even 3 different things.

Dale Richards​I had a BLM employee tell me that anything left on BLM land becomes subject to their rules of removal aft the 50 year mark.

B Cross​Greetings

Wade Kamps​This is why I rule out the treasure being placed on any reservation, then you also have to deal with another sovereign government

Cindy Guess​lol

RedneckExpress​Seriously doubt it’s on private or tribal land…

Michael koen​BLM land

Wade Kamps​Railroad bridges on reservation are all made of metal, they kept burning the wooden bridges and any freight that fell on tribal land became property of the tribe.

Nikolai Strov​Ladies, I hope your man’s spoil you with infinite sweet nothings, all the flowers in the world and more love, hugs and kisses than the eye can see.. Happy Valentimes! See you all next time ♥🙏

Eric Schmidt​Actually don’t blame the native americans for taking the tribal land so seriously as they have historical been taken advantage of

Steve Gaghagen​I agree Eric it’s one thing we didn’t take back

Road Runners​You’re so right Eric.

Eric Schmidt​I have read quite a bit about this – one of the toughest reads was Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.

Denise Bagley​That was? Or is ? I think that was a mistake , I hope.

john gould​The govt will always make the case. (Yo confiscate). What do they have to lose?

Steve Gaghagen​Little Big Man one of the best movies to show how we really treated the natives

Mary Green​@ Denise Bagley caught that too

David Ursiny​fenn is smart chances are that the box contains one gold coin and a paper ticket saying come get your treasure with his phone number

Michael koen​Fenn has said it’s not buried

Eric Schmidt​Michael – he hasn’t said whether it’s buried or not, “That’s a clue I don’t want to give”

amy smith​Hi! I’m late

fossilman123​hello from Phx

clay spence​I can’t get the live streaming up. any ideas?

Clayton Watson​Perpetually late, but finally here!!

11B 2P Treasure finder​Hi Shelley, hi Toby

Mary Green​@ clay spence clear your cookies

A J Rainville​@clay spence refresh browser?

clay spence​done and done. Thanks. will have to see it later. cell service must be bad here. tks.

B Cross

Franklin Eavers​I would speak with an attorney to see what the best place for me to find it would be.

Eric Schmidt​AGK: United AIrlines magazine is Hemispheres

JanKirb​hey fossilman i’m in phx too

Mary Green​@ clay paste url again

fossilman123​hi jan

clay spence​@ mary will do. tks

Bill Gorman​A road is not a trail

Franklin Eavers​Can law enforcement make you say where it was found? In that case I would have a story.

Steve Gaghagen​AGK you did a video awhile ago with a great Fenn timeline can you refer me to what the title to that video is?

Bill Gorman​Forrest cop told me I can keep it

Clayton Watson​By my calculation you have approx 100 days to adjust your search area, find the chest, and implement “your plan for when you find the treasure” before I get there…plus or minus a few snow days 😉

Kira​Bill, a cop isnt a lawyer, it wont hold up.

Michael koen​It won’t be foumd before June

JanKirb​is the Shelley campaign still on?

Laurie James​a boyfriend with a treasure chest please!

Dale Richards​AGK: so, do you think that “go in peace” means to not be confrontational at all, if approached by law enforcement or a government employee?

AJ 21​Agk What if you go public with the treasure what happen then?

amy smith​I wonder if there are mosquitoes close to the treasure?

Eric Schmidt​remove the space before the first “01”

Dan VonBank​watching in Minnesota

Denise Bagley​In the interview just played Forrest says that you need to report it…was that a National Park? I just missed where he said you’d have to report it. Even though it would still belong to the finder.

Clayton Watson​@AJ21 There exists the potential to make enough money doing publicity gigs and write books that you can keep the chest!

Adam Foddy

jaswinters​AGK So just to be clear is there any land out there legal to find the treasure chest without having any complications?

Bill Gorman​Sheriff said I can keep it, he just suggested carrying a gun for the 200 pound cats

Man In The Barn​AGK – When you auction off the chest would you be selling publishing rites to the autobiography and story or will you be keeping that?

Franklin Eavers​He doesn’t say you ‘need’ to, he says that’s the ‘legal’ thing to do. I wouldn’t tell anyone until it’s safely transported.

Adam Foddy​AGK: Has there been any cases of “treasure” being found with the finder losing out due to legal issues?

Joey Pero​Not yet

Steve Gaghagen​we say it carnie

amy smith​I think it’s because your mic is too low to why

Steve Hunt​If you aren’t the (anonymous) finder, would you say it’s not you?

Aksarben​Forrest says he has a feeling it will be found this summer. Do you feel the same or do you think it is to get people off the computer and out to the mountains

JanKirb​AGK Fenn seems so sure of no legality issues that do you think the chest contains a title document to the treasure that passes to the founder?

James Kruse​Might try moving the lapel mic higher up Tody

Peter Longan​should the finder document the location for legal reasons

Miter Broller​AGK. We all know what Clue #1 is, but interested in what Clue #9 is for you? Which line/sentence?

Bill Gorman​They don’t let me in the other Fenn Facebook groups, I know too much.

amy smith​I had one!

Dale Richards​AGK: I had a question above

Denise Bagley​Janno

Michael koen​besides the treasure the only thing I havn’t found is a car wreck in a ditch

Melinda Truscelli​How often do you go out and search? How many have you done so far?

Peter Longan​agk should the finder document the location for legal reasons

Aksarben​Michael were you in Kristin when you saw that wreck

Wade Kamps​Wonder if Forrest wanted to throw his bones on the treasure because Indian bones would trump Forrest Fenns title to his claim? sort of a poke at the govt..

Bill Gorman​I went to the Denver Museum last week, I wasn’t impressed with it.

Michael koen​I have found the rr, the cametary and fire circle

Dale Richards​AGK: some BLM areas have a 5 gallon bucket rule. Would removing a Treasure Trove be allowed with that rule in place?

Bill Gorman​Anubis and the Mammoth outside are the only clues at Denver Nature Useum.

James Kruse​That’s interesting

amy smith​AGK: do you think if there are mosquitoes where he hid the treasure?

Michael koen​yes

Melinda Truscelli​[message retracted]

Bill Gorman​As a camp host at a Forrest service campground, I know all the law enforcement for the area and they all told me I can keep it

James Kruse​Agk: would you open the chest or auction it sealed

Happy Valentines …..

Melinda Truscelli​AGK how many searches have you been on and how often do you go?

Bill Gorman​It will be one of his jars with the title to go claim it

Denise Bagley​I love your show! Thank you.

Dale Richards​Amy: I think Forrest said he accidentally left his sardine sandwich in the chest when he dumped his gold in it.

B Cross​AGK: Are you aware of any interview with Forrest conducted this year with author James Frey?

Eric Schmidt​B Cross – you been watching Cowlazars?

Peter Longan​agk when or did fenn say that the chest could be affected by natural desaters.

Laurie James​FYI. Toby, you really need to read House of Rain by Craig Child’s. It’s a wonderful book.

Road Runners​AGK – Off topic somewhat but can you tell me whether or not there are lignite deposits in or adjacent to Cimarron Canyon?

Mary Green​@ B Cross, u beat me to that Q

Denise Bagley​What if you tell people where you found it? Would they have to prove it? I can’t see what I am typing so forgive my mistakes.

Edward Owen​AGK did forrest say once that the Blaze cannot be seen from Google Earth?

Allie Blanche​agk do you have to report the $100,000 in cash that’s sitting in the chest?

David Dow​AGK: could you create an entity owned by a self directed Roth IRA, therefore when you find it, you don’t really own it, but your Roth IRA OWNS IT, then no taxes need to be paid?

JanKirb​AGK can we exclude NM owned public land and city owned pubic land or not?

Denise Bagley​Like couldn’t you tell people and they’d have to prove it? Whom ever finds it could say it was found somewhere whether it wasn’t found.

Bill Gorman​James Frey said my photos were “Amazing”

amy smith​AGK: do you know if FF’s father really took his own life and the details to finding his body?

Mary Green​@ David Dow, im going to ask a account friend about that

Man In The Barn​AGK – If someone else find the trove and you find out the location afterwards would you announce report on it?

Aksarben​Could you avoid legal issue by lending or just donating it to a museum for an extended/permanent time frame

Steve Gaghagen​thanks for the answers Toby and Shelley love the show great as always Happy Valentine’s day great to be back for a live stream

Jimmy Fast​[message retracted]

Franklin Eavers​Same question as Jimmy Fast.

Michael koen​5 gallon bucket rule is for petrified wood

Denise Bagley​AGK, we should have a secret party with all invested in the hunt.

Joey Pero​@AGK thoughts on the colors mentioned in Tea with Olga?

Bill Gorman​The trove is the Drawings, find the Art in Nature if you’re brave because you will be critisized for seeing Rockwell’s in rocks.

Bill Gorman​Frey loves the Mammoth Temples fits his fantasy style.

Dale Richards​ATK: Do you think Forrest or an affiliate of his has staked a claim where he hid the treasure? If so, entirely different set of rules.

David Ursiny​none of that legal stuff will count on federal property because all you will find at the bear canyon campfire is a box with one gold coin and a ticket saying call me to get your treasure, its a legal

Steve Gaghagen​AGK what are the 6 questions you’ve decided on?

Michael koen​there has been a landslide near where I am looking

Sandy Wolf​Michael get a metal detector

David Cline
If I ever found the treasure, I would split it with you guys for sure. Your dedication to this project is profound.

Bill Gorman​Fenn was asked if an earthquake would hide it and he acted as it could.

David Ursiny​its a legal thing for somebody getting hurt with a pile of gold forrest lawyers schooled him its hiss show

Eric Schmidt​AGK: he said you couldn’t zoom in enough to see the chest – I don’t think he said whether or not you could see the blaze

Peter Longan​thank you for that answer

Sandy Wolf​if treasure is on private land can you still claim it

Eric Schmidt​I thought that was on the Moby Dickens video..?

Dale Richards​ATK: I think he buried it in sand. He made mention of that in referring to a poem in his book. Do you think that digging in the sand does not create a surface disturbance?

Bill Gorman​AGK found in a state ROW?

Sandy Wolf​that’s why he said take it and leave it’s probably on private land

Joey Pero​ATK = only on Thursdays haha !

Sandy Wolf​how do we no that no one has found it cause of tax purposes he said he hasn’t been back to make sure it’s there

WorldFamous Gamer​is it possible to find out where Forrest’s properties?

Seannm Seannm​AGK & All: the key word may be trove, and the fact that he says “leave my trove for all to seek”. This line in the poem may cover the legalities of ownership. He spent a whole bunch of $ on lawyer

Edward Owen​Thank you eric

Dale Richards​AGK: So then, do you think I should do the right thing and put it back? 😉

Eric Schmidt​No problem! Glad to help

fossilman123​AGK, can you add this question to the list of FF Questions…..FF said he hid the treasure , Is it hidden out of view?

Michael koen​Later all, tks

Clayton Watson​AGK: Bill Gorman is referring to State Right-of-Way. I.e. bar ditches and such

James Kruse​Thanks guys, good show!

WorldFamous Gamer​God bless y’all have fun

Eric Schmidt​Thanks again Toby/Shelley

Laurie James​❤️

Tl Mattes​Good Job everyone! Thanks

Cindy Guess​Thank you, AGK!

Paul Ammons​Thanks💕

Joel Lewicki​TTYL

Paul McGinty​Thank you


Mary Green​thank you

Jay Ell​AGK: Other than being in his book, is the poem signed by FF to prove the poem is his for certain Forrest Fenn’s?

Seannm Seannm?Afternoon all?

David Dow?Either with chat on or off, I? can’t find an option for donation by scrolling all the way down.

Treasure Poem?2013?

Crow Dudley?Hello you guys… A newbie here from southern Indiana. Could he have some kind of a GPS device or even geocaching sites close to the treasure?

Michael koen?I also sent him a card telling him where I was going and? what I had found so far

Journeyman?That’s what I? thought when I read it last night.

Steven Merillat?He is to old school for GPS but he is a guy whos made flight plans and knows exactly where he? hid the treasure.

Bill Gorman?guts? have brain cells

Sandy Wolf?ive watched two different searches were people have Found an “F” carved eitber in a tree or stone and these people referred to this as the blaze what? do you think?

Allen K?Hi AGK! Fenn usually says? he hopes the treasure is found in 100-1000-10000 years. Why does his gut now tell him THIS summer?

Clayton Watson?AGK:? His “gut” feeling is a subtle way of saying he has received a signal from a searcher without explicitly acknowledging any particular searcher who has emailed him with correct information. IMO

Michael koen?6 bucks 50 cent and the location of his? fathers grave led me to a rusty pipe 18 inches long

Treasure Poem?Clayton Watson:? I agree

Bill Gorman?an f in a tree is little compared to Fenn with a? fish and two hooks on the top of a cliff face.

David Dow?Sally Wolf, some searchers leave an “f” to mark that they’ve searched? that area.

Clayton Watson?@Treasure? Poem ????

fossilman123?huh ?? koen

Michael koen?hmm??

Michael koen?rusty? pipe in book he slide down and 18 inches is how far he stopped from ground after bail out in nam

fossilman123?why 6.50 and what rusty? pipe

Eric Schmidt?Outside? Miss Ford’s class


Michael koen?6 bucks 50 cents and location? of his father grave=gps

Michael koen?2 borderline biddies is also a? hint

B Cross?Howdy?

Michael koen?will ne back after falcon lift? off

Jeff Treece?Agk do? you know if Forrest fenn ever took Eric Sloan for a ride in his plane?

Bill Gorman?he said after the preacher died he could retrieve it on his? own

Michael koen?that knowledge is important, just knowing a 2 track road is a dirt road but? could also be interped as a rr track

fossilman123?thx koen, 2? biddies?

Maestro?love? you’re show

Joey Pero?@AGK. Greetings from? NYC!

Stephen Johns?AGK Toby and? Shelley when you go out hunting for Forrests treasure chest how long do you devote to an area or spot on average?

Bill Gorman?canyon? down then paddle up creek

Joey Pero?The famous bill Gorman? is here!

Eric Schmidt?Infamous!?

Maestro?what lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters? to what lies within us. RWE May God bless

Dan Kirk?AGK:? Are you two still considering the geologic theory for the home of Brown?

phil?AGK: a few is more than two but not much more than two, (Collected works event?)?

Joey Pero?@AGK hello from? NYC!

Steven Merillat?you git my last name right YAY?

Michael koen?2 biddies is in? the book

Laurie James?blaze on a tree not? unique.

Bill Gorman?AGK Forrest said after the preacher died that he could retrieve the treasure on his own.? Also he sad he can”t imagion anbody being within 12 Feet and not finding it. it can be seen from that far

Man In The Barn?I think Bill figuring out the bottle caps is the reason FF is saying? he thinks it will be found. Bill is figuring it out.

Cindy Guess?Forrest has said he hid the treasure when “the country was in a? terrible recession” or “starting a pretty good recession”. Does that conform your 2003 hiding date? or 2010?

Paul Wood?Do u think it is? in a tree

Michael koen?behind a pine tree?

Mike Gregg?you guys are getting? close with your interpretation of the clues that’s probably why he thinks it will be found

Laurie James?AKG. What year did FF? sell his plane?

fossilman123?why do you think? 2 biddies are a clue?

Paul Wood?agk is it in a tree from? Rio rancho nm

Michael koen?2 BORDERLINE BIDDIES, I know it? is

Adam Foddy?Hey guys! Just checking in to say? hello. will watch this later tonight.

Laurie James?I’m? from Salida!

Cowlazars?hi? all

Michael koen?there isn’t any way you can get to the treasure before june because of the? high alt snow

AJ 21?Agk do plan on? going to rio costilla area?

Laurie James?Snowing in? Salida!

Michael koen?it’s at 8700 feet?

Bill Gorman?The architect was the brown? beaver

Crow Dudley?What if he used a tracking device similar to what they use in ?finding a lost dog

Michael koen?battery would be dead for tracking?

Paul Ammons?AGK: One location I feel very confident with, to see the blaze I would need to break? a rule…. Thoughts?

fossilman123?why you say that koen? Thanks foe the? tips btw

Paul Wood?cowlazars it’s been? 2weeks no text from fen i am close

David Dow?AGK: what are your thought on “worth the? cold”?

Cowlazars?Paul Wood let me know how the next trip? goes..

Laurie James?oops? missed that?

fossilman123?8700? ft?

Michael koen?I only have 1 lung, my o2 machine crapped out less than 200 feet of where I wanted? to look and severly cut myself and had to retreat in heavy rain

Steven Merillat?8000ft? –

Cowlazars?Brother Bill keep up the good work!?

Laurie James?Thanks on the plane info.?

Steven Merillat?Cow – I hate the? glacier national park solve. TO COLD

Coleen DeBaldo

Coleen DeBaldo?Agk Thanks for? the hard work, good luck Shelly

Bill Gorman?AGK? Do 3 jars of Cloves + mammoth + Clovis Points = Clovis ?

Steven Merillat

Eric Schmidt?AGK: follow up on “worth the cold” question. You find it interesting that Forrest forgot the poem at that point in the Moby Dickens video? The rest of the poem he said? from memory.

Aksarben?your effort will be worth the bronze chest, just like he was? talking about the cold bronze bust of the Indian head. a different way of reading his words
Joey Pero?^________?

Clayton Watson?@Aksarben ???

Aksarben?Hear me all and listen good… Moby dickens he read this line twice. Watch the video and see him do that. I think this line? is really important

The Whole Monti?…. it will be? found this summer

phil?AGK: do you think there is significance to the poem mentioned,? BRAVE and in the wood, with my treasures BOLD, no place for the meek as a motif?

Steven Merillat?Spending Toby’s cash? ??

Joey Pero?@AGK No? place for the meek – no place for biddies ? Thoughts?

David Dow?I was thinking “ in the wood” might mean “on target” like in? playing darts.

The Whole Monti?would you give the treasure away if? you found it with someones solve

Bill Gorman?Moses halts the warm waters? and I found him parting the Rocky Mountains.

Michael koen?I had? 1 bear follow me out 2nd trip

Crow Dudley?AGK. Do? you think he has a tracking device in the treasure box

Joey Pero?Loose lips? sink ships!

Michael koen?lol? haad both

Aksarben?yeah i saw the dates? 1960’s security cameras at his old gallery…. very low tech

The Whole Monti?After email him last year, i emailed him “its a map” a month later? he said “its a map”

Samuel Smith?AGK could the phrase ‘in the wood’ be indicative of the location being within? a National Forest, i.e. pu8blic land?

David Dow?AGK: when you auction off? at Sotheby’s, will they keep you anonymous?

HoneyB100?If you find the TC in a Federal Park that requires you to report it to the Park Director will? you?

Franklin Eavers?I just found out about the Fenn treasure a month ago. Anyway, I’ve read TTOTC and the poem hundreds of times and am waiting for warm weather. Thank you? guys.

Journeyman?Thanks Guys?

The Whole Monti?Thank you, I love a gypsy’s kiss?

Michael koen?It’s on BLM? land

Mary Green?Michael koen?It’s? on BLM land,.. i think that too

David Dow?Another great? show.

fossilman123?Hey Koen i didn’t understand your? answer for the elevation of 8700 ft.

Michael koen?and because of BLM land? it’s not buried

Mary Green?a trick to blm? land though

Paul Ammons?Thanks for your time!?

Michael koen?very simple, that? is the altitude it is

Michael koen?at the? base of the sizzor tail
