“No need to dig up the old outhouses. The treasure is not associated with any structure.” – Forrest Fenn

Mav’s Analysis:

Forrest is essentially telling people to stop digging up outhouses, they’re not the Home of Brown (lol at the person who first came up with this solve).

The only point of debate surrounding this hint is if it applies to all the clues in the poem, or just the treasure. We lean strongly towards all of the clues being non-structures because Fenn specifically wanted the the chase to exist for thousands of years.
