New Mini-Treasure Hunt Announced in the Next AGK Vlog

My recon stroke fishing trip was rained out, so I’m home a day early.

The result is that I have some good news and some bad news.

I’m going to give you the bad news first: Although I promised to cover “trilateralization” in the next vlog, I’m not.

Here’s the good news: While I was traveling for the last couple of days, I took the time to hide another mini-treasure! Above is a photo of the hollow stump in which I hid it. The plastic container holds even more $1 coins and our business card. We had so much fun with the last one, we thought we’d do it again.

But wait, there’s more!

I’m going to code the cipher for this treasure hunt a little bit more complex than the last, and you’ll have to be BOTG to get the second half of the clues.

Hint: Get out your copy of Fenn’s treasure poem. The key to the cipher is hidden inside it.

One Last Out-of-State Recon for 2017

One of the disadvantages of living in one of Fenn’s Rocky Mountain states is not having travel costs as an excuse not to head out and look for that damned treasure.

If we had to, we could be in Brown’s Canyon (CO) in 5 hours, Sinks Canyon (WY) in 11, and Gardiner (MT) in 14.

We promised ourselves a return trip to a couple of the out-of-New Mexico (out of 7 total) recons we’ve been on this year. Seems to us that this is as good a time as any, considering snow has fallen on Yellowstone, and a serious Autumn is ever drawing nigh. And, being retired, it’s not like I had a bunch of party plans anyway.

So, we’ll be out of pocket for several days, although our vlog will still release on Wednesday of next week. Who knows, we might even have another mini-treasure for you to find.

Yes, I realize this is the antithesis of my “The treasure is in New Mexico” theory, but, in all honesty, I’m taking my fly rod and a bunch of #14 Frenchie Nymphs with me. There are a river full of Cutthroat Trout up there that could use some catchin’.

Like Fenn says, I’m feeling like my elbow needs some room.

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.”
