To know the man is to know the treasure.

To know the man is to know the treasure.
During several of the interviews Fenn has granted, when asked why he hid the treasure, he responds by saying (and I'm paraphrasing), "To get people from in front of their TV into the beautiful outdoors."



Today I searched the phrase "Forrest Fenn" on Google and YouTube. There were approximately 544,000 search results on Google and 4,050 on YouTube. Last month, on September 20, I conducted exactly the same search. There were 495,000 results on Google and 3,700 on YouTube. I'm curious to see if the results of the Forrest Fenn search continues to increase.



My sense of some of his actions: the writing of out of the ordinary (when it comes to publishing investment) books, the casting and hiding of bronze bells and jars with intentionally misspelled words and containing his autobiography, the occasional reference to the Rosetta Stone, his reverence for historically significant artifacts, his commitment to ancient Native American history and culture, and his memorialization of tidbits of his life in books, are those of a man who what we, in World History class in high school, would refer to as "Achilles' Infamy:" the desire for one's accomplishments to have a life long past one's physical death.



Is the treasure that?

IMHO...For Mr. Fenn, yes, and his legacy to his heirs...It's like the double omegas, the end of his life will be the end of his chase...For the rest of us, we will have his writings and a confounded box to console us...Even when found, the mystique will continue...

@tyounis you asked: “<i>Is the treasure that</i>?”



Short answer is yes.......Fenn is proud of what he has accomplished, but seems to me is having a problem with the indifference of the world.

Stephanie & searchers who have met FF - Does FF speak like he writes? I mean does he laugh & joke around? Or is he serious & talk formally with all of that descriptive stu-ff? For example - I would say, "I'm hungry. Let's eat." FF might say, "The hour of noon is upon us. Therefore we must retire to the dining establishment to partake of our repast." Is his speech antiquated & odd? Wait - not the right words. Is FF's normal speaking "flowery" & drawn out? Of course I've heard him on the videos & in the media, but so much of that is repetetive & memorized. How does he naturally talk one-on-one?

We visited him in May & seemed to me his speech pattern was pretty normal.

He's not chatty like he is when the camera is on. I mean he talks, but you can tell that he likes to listen more than talk in an observing kinda way...unless it's about his collections...then he will ramble on with really great knowledge and enthusiasm.



I wouldn't say he talks like he writes in typical conversation.

when i had a one on one with Fenn (at Collective Works), i felt like i was being interrogated by a high school principle, proving i could move to the next level of school.... It was like a make up test.....so young lady where do warm waters halt? oh really and just why is that?..

We had some good laughs over some of the characters i had been researching, and i found him to be very delightful.....I also have great respect for the way he treats and talks to people. He's a one of a kind for sure in my book.
