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 ever drawing 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 answer 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.

Clue #10 (March 1, 2013)
What has the reaction been like for you?
"Well it's been hectic. My website crashed for 7 hours yesterday because it had so many hits."
Ok, weve talked you into somehow giving us another clue this morning.
"Well Im not going to put an X on the map for you."
Well how about the clue.
"The treasure is higher than 7,...than 5,000 feet above sea level."
Can you give us more than that?
"No. Thats all you get."
Clue #11 (March 27, 2013)
How did we talk you in giving us another clue?
"I dont have a clue."
Allright, how bout that clue. Can you give it to us now?
"There's no need digging in the old outhouses, the treasures not associated with any structure."
Clue #12 (May 3, 2013)
"The Treasure is not in a graveyard."
You call that a clue?
"It's a clue."
Is it a good clue?
"I dont know. What do you think?"
Are you saying you didnt,... you didnt bury it?
"I didnt say it hasnt been buried. I said I hid it but that doesnt mean it isnt buried."
Clue #13 (June 28, 2013)
"The treasure is not in Idaho or Utah"
Will you exclude Colorado as well?
You have said that some people have been frightfully close to this treasure.
"Some of,...Some of the searchers have been within 500 feet I know."

A conversation with Forrest Fenn

(Filmed by fellow searcher Toby Younis at The Collected Works Bookstore - 10/22/2013.)
I am unsure if it is official, but Mr. Fenn gave another clue in the video, maybe two.
"It is not on the top of any mountain."
Just throwing it out there as I thought on this today. Does anyone think the first line would make sense in that where he states "As I have gone alone in there" to be manipulated/interpreted as " AS I HAVE (GO / NE) ? AS I HAVE GO NE (NORTHEAST)?
Another thing I have been thinking.....If you've been wise and found the blaze look quickly down your quest to cease..... If light blazes and you look down quickly you will see a shadow.
Hmmm, those links are not working for me...
NVM... working now.
Patiently waiting the next clue.
The first post in this discussion has been updated to reflect exact syntax of Mr. Fenn's words. I have noticed that even the Today Show has altered, albiet slightly, many instances of Mr. Fenn's words so I thought it appropriate to review the video's and make any corrections the the ID clue list.
Also the url links to the Today Show videos have been updated to direct you to their exact location. They have changed them more than once it seems.
Please Mr. Fenn, I ache to update this discussion with new info.
Awaiting clue #14 every day.
Bump - added link to a copy of the excerpt of The Thrill of The Chase, to the first post.
