More Fenn Treasure Articles Due

Four Fenn Articles

By our count, we’ll see at least four articles covering the Fenn treasure before the end of the summer. There are two that Fenn mentioned to the community earlier in the year, and at least two from journalists on the ground in Santa Fe over the Fennboree 2018 weekend.

West Yellowstone

Open source intelligence sources confirm to us that the two Fenn mentioned earlier in the year could come from “Wired” magazine and “The Guardian,” the British newspaper. We expect more information on the “Wired” magazine edition, since the writer is in the Yellowstone area this week. (As searcher Cynthia Meachum, confirmed in an earlier interview on our YouTube channel.) Meachum is also in Yellowstone at this time, and hosted a “Function in the Junction” event for other searchers in the area on the evening of June 23rd. The writer was expected to be in attendance.

Credentialed Journalists at Collected Works Book Signing

There were two credentialed journalists (both with photographers in tow) at Fenn’s book signing on Saturday, June 23, 2018. We spoke to them as well as an un-credentialed freelancer, also at the event. Two of them had already met with Fenn, and were planning to meet with him again on Sunday, the 24th. They also interviewed several of the searchers present. All three were at the Friday evening Fennboree event at The Hyatt Place hotel in Santa Fe.

The credentialed journalists were from “Esquire” magazine and “The Daily Mail Online,” the online outlet of the British newspaper.

More details to follow as they become available.

Where is Skippy Buried?

Saturday, June 23, 2018.

Today, at the Forrest Fenn book signing event that took place at the Collected Works Bookstore in Santa Fe, Fenn provided an answer that resolves one of the great mysteries of the search. We captured it on the video we shot. Listen carefully to it here. Click on the images for more detail.

Fennboree 2018: Revised Schedule (6-21-2018)

Understanding Where Warm Waters Halt in New Mexico (Updated on June 22, 2018)

I have assumed that the Fenn’s treasure chest is hidden in New Mexico. I’ve explained why in an earlier entry. While that decision could be criticized, it cannot be debated. It’s my assumption, and I cling to it like a grizzly bear does to a chubby, tasty flatlander.

I have also assumed that “warm waters” as used in the first clue of Fenn’s Poem (Begin it where warm waters halt…) is Fenn’s gracious, poetic, and pretty damned transparent nod to the the New Mexico State Game and Fish Department Fishing Rules and Information pamphlet. He is, after all, a lifelong, devout and dedicated fisherman, and would be familiar with them.

When I first started searching for the treasure Forrest Fenn hid somewhere in the mountains north of Santa Fe, like everyone else, I used Google search to help me. At that time, when I searched “warm waters” the first entry on the results list was the reference to the phrase “warm waters” in the New Mexico Fishing Regulations. Perform the same search today, and you’ll get everything that has been written since. By anyone.

Since I’m about to jump into them, you can download a copy (in Adobe Acrobat) format of the 2018-2019 Fishing Proclamation (as the Rules are referred to) here. (I update this information annually.)

First, the phrase “warm waters,” (the plural) in the context of fishing, is unique to New Mexico. No other Rocky Mountain state uses the phrase in the context of fishing.

Second, while it is common knowledge that trout thrive in waters just either side of 55 degrees, there is nothing in anything the NMG&FD publishes that defines hot, warm, cool or cold waters in terms of temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius. You will, on the other hand, find lists, with appropriate images, of warm water species and cold water species on the NMG&FD website without any reference to water temperatures.

CaptureaThird, you can find the definition of warm waters on page 16 of the above referred to publication. In the first paragraph it says, “Warm waters include all streams, lakes, and ponds, except those designated as trout waters (pages 24–25, 31).

Thus, the distinction, in the context of New Mexico fishing, is not between warm waters and cool waters, or warm water species and cool water species. It’s between warm waters and Trout Waters, irrespective of temperature or specie. (Special Trout Waters are a subset of Trout Waters, and reside within them._

The following has been edited (on June 22, 2018) to correct our understanding of warm waters in New Mexico.

That difference is documented in the map below. Click on the map to enlarge. A copy of this map is included in the annual New Mexico Fishing Rules and Info pamphlet. <===== You can download the current pamphlet with the link.

Simply put, warm waters in New Mexico are in the white areas of the map, and trout waters in the pink areas. Warm waters halt at the transition points between the two. For even more detail you can download this map:

The Distance Between Clue 1 and 9 in Fenn’s Treasure Poem Can Be Measured in Feet

Effectively, it boils down to a matter of time and money.


If your search radius – that is: the distance between your Forrest Fenn Treasure Clue Number 1 and Clue 9 – is 500 feet, then your search area is .028 square miles, roughly 1/4 square mile or approximately 13.5 football fields¹.

If, on the other hand, your search radius is 10 miles, then your search area is a little over 314 square miles, or approximately 152,427 football fields.

But, let’s say you’re headed in a single direction inside your search radius – that is, you’re going to travel in, effectively, a straight line from clue 1 to 9. Then, in the case of your 500 foot search radius, you’ve reduced the problem to approximately 1.66 football fields. And, in the case of your 10 mile search radius, you’ve reduced the problem to approximately 176 football fields.

Good luck in your search.
