When Forrest Fenn hid a chest full of gold, sapphires, and rubies somewhere in the Rocky Mountains in 2010, he tapped into something deep. It was like the American Dream reduced to its essence—an equal-opportunity quest for a small fortune. What seemed at first like a harmless poem containing nine treasure clues sent thousands on a journey of obsession and desperation. One searcher—Darrell Seyler—gave everything.

    Darrell may be obsessed, but he’s also probably closer to the treasure than any other hunter. Though it’s hard to stay focused when Fenn himself is distracting you.

Not what I was expecting

I really enjoyed this podcast. I didn’t know anything of this story and treasure hunt, but have it a go and want disappointed. In fact, the personal, often traffic, story of Darrel was the hook that made me binge this in a couple of days.
I hope Peter returns with more tales of Americana.
