Have you ever dreamt of finding buried treasure?
As you’ve likely heard, 82-year-old Forrest Fenn is hoping to make that dream a reality. Forrest is stoking the imaginations of would-be treasure seekers across the world by giving away a million-dollar fortune via a treasure hunt. He has buried a treasure chest somewhere in New Mexico, and has been releasing clues about its location, stemming from his poem, “The Thrill of the Chase.”
