Buried Treasure In New Mexico … Really, Here’s How To Find It

If you need a project to gather up the family and hit the great outdoors with, here ‘ya go!

Forrest Fenn, a multimillionaire from New Mexico, (finally a weird news story out of New Mexico that doesn’t involve insanity, alcohol or a meth lab!) was diagnosed with terminal cancer and decided to give away his money.

He wanted to encourage more people to lay down their cell phones, step away from the lap tops and get out of the house!   To that end, he buried several million dollars worth of his fortune somewhere in New Mexico hoping folks would get off their as … errrr, couches and go find it!


It’s been a few years now and Forrest is now cancer free. The treasure however, has never been found.  Despite being around a little longer to spend his money, Forrest is not rescinding his challenge.  It’s still out there guys … somewhere …

He left 9 clues in the poem below. Read it, figure ’em out and get started!  Just remember to bring lots of water and watch for snakes!

If you have an idea what some of these clues mean, mention them below or on The Q facebook page!  It could be hundreds of miles away in Gallop, it could be 20 miles away in Mesilla!  (If a member of The Q family finds it, they are honor bound to throw a MEGA party for all who posted their ideas!  Deal??)

Not as easy as buying a lottery ticket, but WAY more fun!  Brad, Kevin … I may need a couple of weeks off.

As I have gone alone in there

And with my treasures bold,

I can keep my secret where,

And hint of riches new and old.

Begin it where warm waters halt

And take it in the canyon down,

Not far, but too far to walk.

Put in below the home of Brown.

From there it’s no place for the meek,

The end is drawing ever nigh;

There’ll be no paddle up your creek,

Just heavy loads and water high.

If you’ve been wise and found the blaze,

Look quickly down, your quest to cease

But tarry scant with marvel gaze,

Just take the chest and go in peace.

So why is it that I must go

And leave my trove for all to seek?

The answers I already know

I’ve done it tired, and now I’m weak

So hear me all and listen good,

Your effort will be worth the cold.

If you are brave and in the wood

I give you title to the gold.
