Semi-new here . . .

Semi-new here . . .
Greetings, and good luck to everyone here.

I'm a Californian, and have posted on this blog just a few times. I would
like to encourage everyone to (at least try to) be polite to each other,
even if disagreeing with someone.

My solve took at least 200 hours of my time, but I have a high degree of
confidence in it. Yes, I know that the proof is in the pudding, and talk is
certainly cheap.

I have been on 2 search trips in 2016, both in the same area. In May, I
had to abort due to sudden snow. I returned and got a little farther in
August. On that trip I saw some things that bolstered my confidence
in my solve -- things that didn't show up on Google Earth, which can zoom
in farther than Mapquest can. So I plan to go again for my third BOTG
search trip in late June 2017. Of course I hope it'll be my last search
trip. That part of the Rocky Mountains is very scenic, so I do plan to
return several more times . . . but it will be for sight-seeing instead of
treasure hunting.

Again, good luck to all searchers. Please do a good amount of research
and preparation before hiking, and don't hike alone.

RE: Semi-new here . . .
Sounds like you have a good plan with lots of hours of work. Care to expose what state you are searching in? BTW all of the Rockies are very scenic even the dry desert areas have there beauty and the aspens in fall could be compared to the beauty of the treasure !

The Count,

No, I don't care to expose what state I am searching in. I'm afraid that it might help someone find the TC before I do. However, I don't mind
helping people avoid fruitless searching.

My search area is in the Rockies, of course. More specifically, in a desert
(if that helps any . . . look up the definition of "desert").

The nearest human trail is more than a mile away from the hidey space,
in my opinion. And there is a real creek pretty close to the TC . . . also
in my opinion. That's creek, not river -- although a river is also within 3
miles (as the bird flies) of the TC. And the elevation of the TC is, in my opinion, less than 8,000 ft. Google earth can show elevations for
wherever you put your cursor.

Good luck to you in your solving and searching. Please keep safety as a
high priority in the mountains.

I'm from the Rockies so its easy to put in my head where you might be searching but the Rockies are large. If I would guess I would say NM and if you think say any one state is going to help any find the treasure maybe you need to revaluate your solve. All the state lines in the search area are straight lines(except for Montana ofcourse) geographically speaking I don't think straight lines are good markers on a map to quantify a state or province, maybe thats why Fenn did NOT high light all of the Rockies within each state of the search area with in the map, but what do I know I'm just here for entertainment.
