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.

The good and bad

Really entertaining podcast. Interesting to hear the hood and bad sides to this hunt. Darrell’s obsession may sound crazy to some but I can relate. Forrest was an active participant that made this hunt so entertaining. The little tidbits that grabbed our attention in the scrapbooks would keep us hooked. Here we still are. It’s no coincidence that we still hang around waiting or moving on.

It’s not about the treasure

The search for the treasure has been riveting but my heart is with Darrel and his more meaningful search. Well done!

Poor writing

Really intent on sounding lofty and articulate, yet lacks the basic foundations of thoughtful thinking and writing.
