Sad.

It is sad in a way. Remember the old adage ."even a blind squirrel can find a nut"? My guess is someone that wasn't even looking for the treasure will stumble onto it.

I'm changing that to has stumbled upon it and kept quiet.

Fenn would have stated if it were found to stop everyone else from wasting their time and money.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone found it and is keeping quiet about it.  I know Fenn offered to buy something of sentimental value back, but I think there's a good possibility someone found this treasure and is selling it a piece at a time, keeping quiet, to avoid being "lottery famous," and perhaps even to avoid paying taxes.  If not Fenn's treasure being found in that way, I would think many others would be cashed in on the down low.  I just don't think Fenn was in a position to place the treasure to terribly far off the beaten path and would have been found.

Personally, I have decided that the treasure is in Idaho.  I may even use it as an excuse to get up to Idaho someday.  Probably won't do a lot of treasure hunting, maybe fishing though.

I would think if found, the price would be more if associated with the treasure. I fell into this hook line and sinker. Best time of my life heading out on a treasure hunt. Had a blast, met new people and places.  Also found what I believe to be a place that matched all the clues but no gold.
