I think Fenn may wonder from time to time if he says too much. Then we're left with two week spurts like the one we have now. He's created a monster and knows that for his family's sake there is only one way to shut it down.

If it's not found before he passes, I'd hate for my lay name to be Fenn. Talk about the crazies coming out of the wood.

Well, let's hope that he doesn't shut it down for another 5 months.... Smile

Wouldn't that be cool if he hid it in Hyde Park, just feet away from where everyone will be eating....I wouldn't put it passed him.. Wink

Yeah it would. You know what else would be cool?

RE: "At least 8.25 miles north of Santa Fe"
I think all the talk about 8.25 miles north of Santa Fe is to keep people
away from FF's home.

People seem, in my opinion, to be over-thinking the number. I have good
reason(s) to believe that all of the actual items suggested by the poem's clues, hints, etc. are much farther north, by hundreds of
miles.

But of course, I won't have the chest for at least a few months,
so please take everything I say with a grain of salt.

Good luck. Please stay safe, and please stay on topic . . . the hunt
for the treasure.

Yeah. I thought about my intended answer and decided to digress. I was boisterous enough for one day and was lacking sufficient sleep.

Correct, the surveying measurement referenced in OP

Do you have a link to a later interview where he did reference this way? I left this Morning and trying to find that on my phone is hard.

Sorry I haven't come back to this post since my last comment. The later reference has been said in many interviews. I'm pretty sure if you watch any interview of Forrest discussing the chase, he'll mention it a third of the time.
