Notice he doesn't say the "chest" is wet - he says the "treasure."

This could indicate that the treasure - i.e. the contents of the chest - is wet. Which makes sense from a physics point of view, because the inside would have been wet from water creeping in during wet weather, and it's conceivable that it would STAY wet inside there, what with the lid being closed and without extreme heat to evaporate out the moisture inside the chest.

Just one interpretation...

HalloweenCandy, I agree with you. If the treasure (chest) has ONE DROP
of water on it, that qualifies as wetness. So what FF said about this is
hardly even a hint, much less a clue. But common tools like logic and
a dictionary seem to be quite rare around here. By the way, have you
shown the poem to any children?

I feel like this is the subject that teeter totters the most.

I am a believer that it is buried for the sake of someone not being able to stumble on to it. And for the preservation of the cache as well.
How could the poem describe this though?

I understand that the poem is a description of how to get there, and a description of where it is.. but I feel like there is redundancy within the poem, and all the information needed, kinda funnels through the same channel.
Like the location, the way to find the location, the reason, and how to retrieve it all have the same things in common.
Maybe the root of the words used, or the randomness and unexplained intentions of the location. And maybe Fenn favorite place is just a metaphor for the real location.

Just observations

------------------------------------------------------------------

Hammertime, I think that a correct solve will indicate a good reason for
the TC to NOT be buried . . . and will also indicate why FF was so
reluctant to tell us whether it is or not. I worked very hard, trying to understand the phrase "Your effort". My latest idea about this is that
the chest may be surrounded/covered with one or more rocks, but not otherwise buried. I was considering "effort" to maybe mean "F fort"
( -- a protective enclosure built by Fenn).

Good luck in your solving and searching.
