Who hasn't dreamed of deciphering a cryptic map and discovering a hidden treasure chest worth millions of dollars? Of course, finding the riches would be amazing, but there is also something very alluring about the process—the thrill of the chase, if you will. The Thrill of the Chase is, in fact, the name of a book written by eccentric millionaire Forrest Fenn that included a poem with enigmatic clues he claimed would lead a clever treasure seeker to a chest of gold and priceless artifacts. As it turns out, the story was true. Just last week, Forrest Fenn's treasure was finally found. Forrest Fenn's treasure was real after all.
