Mary Green​Ron Leak didnt want AGK to miss your Q

Joel Lewicki​AGK: Have you had a chance to look at the “end of the rainbow” in the first edition of the book “Flywater”? If so, any thoughts?

Ramblin Pam​Happy New Year Toby and Shelley. Always enjoy your videos.

Jimmy Fast​AGK Is the Denver museum where Shilo said ” you really should see what’s in the basement”? and then Forrest quickly changed the subject🤔

Eric Schmidt​AGK: As a follow up to Jimmy Fast’s question… what are your thoughts about Dr. HM Wormington?

Allen Grosh​this is so intriguing to me, just found out about the poem and treasure a few days ago, and I’ve been binge watching your vids!! you guys both have lovely voices to listen to.

Ron Leak​Thank you Mary Green

Allen Grosh​​f has said that a child may have an advantage in solving the poem. Do you think you may be reading too much into it? In my opinion the initial WWWM is the most important clue, and the most vague.

Andrew West​AGK, have you guys explored the Colorado National Monument area?

Kyle Lambert​agk have you guys seen the last email I sent you a while back with the imagery from the poem on a map?

Timothy Alkire​AGK, TOBY & SHELLY HOW Do you test your key word?

steve remple​AGK, you have discussed the poem and clues relating to having longevity. Do think it’s possible that they do not have the shelf we believe they do. Hence the treasure being there 1000 years from now.

kevnston​Hello from Richmond Virginia

Eric Schmidt​Dr. HM Wormington’s research on the Folsom points is what put the Denver Museum on the map.

Allen Grosh​thank you for responding!

Eric Schmidt​😃

Andrew West​AGK, you skipped my question Shelley. Have you guys considered the Colorado National Monument?

Richard Hunter​Fenn didn’t say “keyword.”

Timothy Alkire​AGK SHELLEY, YOU are correct. ff said that imagination will be what finds the TC.

Andrew West​AGK, where can you plug in a keyword as a cipher to the poem?

Mary Green​a word that is key, wonder what the word thats key points to any ideas

home on the range​”marvel gaze” and “worth the cold” sill baffle me.

merwin horner​does any one know where ff have his chemo.

Clayton Watson​Mary Green, I am only offering speculation but in my solve it is the hint that narrows down the many WWWH to the one you need to use.

Mary Green​home on the range, me too

Kyle Lambert​home on the range, those come after hear me all and listen good. could it mean sounds similar? maybe Buena Vista, and mount sneffles region?

Jim Little​word that is key is ringboe

Mary Green​Clayton Watson wow have you checked that out

Steve Gaghagen​thank you guys great work as always. see you next week. cold here in Nebraska

Edward Owen​Thanks for a great year I went 3 times

David Charles Davio22​I have found the key word. it varifies you have the solve to poem

Andrew West​Congrats David

David Charles Davio22​Page 15 is something that needs to talk about IT is THE BOLD.

Mary Green​see you next week thanks

David Charles Davio22​I found the BLAZE
David Charles Davio22 was timed out by Jimmy Fast for 300 seconds.

Might and Marvel​when is the nightline interview…?


Mid-Month Survey Update

Survey Countries

We are a little more than halfway through this month’s survey of Fenn treasure hunters. We have a total of 87 responses, which is not a bad sample. As you can see in the image above, the majority of respondents are from the United States. Other data indicates that, of those in the United States, 69% of the respondents live in States other than the “search States” of New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana.

If you haven’t taken the survey yet, please take a minute to do so. It’s relatively painless, and I plan to share all the data soon after the survey is completed on February 15, 2014. Click on the Survey link in the menu bar near the top of the page to get to the easy-to-take survey.

If you have a suggestion for next month’s poll or survey, please leave it in a comment box below.

Thank you!
