My quest for leprechaun Forrest Fenn’s treasure continues this week with two new clues, despite my suspicions about Forrest Fenn’s good intentions and some recent setbacks. With your help, SOS can find this treasure by St. Paddy’s Day.
You are no doubt aware that infamous leprechaun Forrest Fenn lost his gold somewhere in Santa Fe and has been calling for the world to help him find it.
In old-timey leprechaun style the only clues Mr. Fenn has given the public are contained in a poem. A very long poem you can read here.
This week I am pleased to announce two new clues will enable me to find the treasure. That’s right I fully intend that I, or another Survivor on SOS, will find this treasure by St. Paddy’s Day.
As Survivors know, I believe this line of the poem is key:
“PUT IN BELOW THE HOME OF BROWN”
As many of you know, I spent last week calling all homes of Browns in Santa Fe and I am pleased to report this has yielded some very useful information. Namely, DON’T CALL THE HOMES OF BROWNS.
Let me repeat that, if you like me, did a 411 search on Brown families in the Santa Fe area? DO NOT CALL! The police have no sense of humour about this situation and have ordered me to cease and desist.
That was my first clue. But I’m not sorry that I did try calling every Brown family in Santa Fe because one very nice lady, name of Tammy Brown, gave me a second clue: Santa Fe is famous for its pueblos. In fact there are EIGHT OR NINE PUEBLOS WITHIN A SHORT DISTANCE OF SANTA FE. And these pueblos are all what color? BROWN! You can see the pueblos for yourself here at Santa Fe tourism site.
Thank you Tammy Brown! Even though I think it was likely you called the cops on me, I know you meant well. And you did help me find this clue. It all fits. Could HOME OF BROWN = PUEBLO? Especially since Forrest Fenn is reported to have spent a lot of his life adventuring around these pueblos.
Now to determine which of these pueblos it is? That’s the hard part. The poem is very vague. Something about starting at WARM WATERS and taking a CANYON DOWN but that it’s TOO FAR TO WALK. So this is the hard part. Because I am in fact walking. Big mistake as it turns out. Turns out I’m not the only one either. Another treasure hunter had to be airlifted out of here yesterday. She ran out of water so I called emergency services for her.
Anyway, more updates later! Keep on keeping on. Any clues you can give me are greatly appreciated.
