I can't wait to learn exactly where it was found! Had a lot of fun with this one myself and with my family. I wanted to ask those here though, if any of you would like to do like a Six Questions about the things you enjoyed on the hunt. If interested, please message me, and I'll forward some questions to you.

Hard to let it go so i want to post one more thought to see if i was right or not. I think the three circles matched markings on a large tree where branches had been cutoff. I found a tree there at pep that looked close, but not close enough. Congrats to the finder. Still have no clue what those numbers meant.
Yeah, I think I was a tad disappointed in the solution. When I emailed the person running it I was discouraged from making the 2 hour drive unless I knew the exact location. But it seems like what was required was being on site and exploring the trees and seeing if you could put a few things together and try digging deep enough to come across it.
I know many of you went to the site and explored and probably did some digging, so it's unlikely that I would have been so lucky as to find the spot and gotten my hands on the coin, but it is a tad disappointing that I probably had as much information as needed to at least taken that chance.
Oh well. The hunt was fun. I definitely enjoyed the process. Hopefully there are more fun hunts/puzzles in the future.

I got there once. So many places to look. My daughters alerted me to the crooked bendy tree, but it didnt seem to match up with what i was thinking. The numbers were a lame clue. Had a lot of fun on this forum. We nailed a lot of the solves. This was my first one not including fenns which is just an occassional hobby for me. i am hooked now. The forum made it fun. Btw fenns treasure is in cimarron cannon in clear creek. Please go get it for me and ill share the money😉😆
Did anyone else find it funny that the solver said specifically they did not visit the forums for any clues. But did meet with a group of searchers (who probably did?). Seemed odd.
It was fun, I think a private group might be the best way to go next time. With those that shared rather than those who didn't getting free info with no return. Over 40 views to every post and the videos getting that many, it seems we had lots of onlookers!
