“The treasure is not hidden in a mine. A lotta these old mines are dangerous. I mean, they have snakes in ’em, they have black widow spiders!” – Forrest Fenn

“The treasure is not in a tunnel someplace” – FF (Unverified – can’t locate the original source).

Mav’s Analysis:

Pay close attention to why Forrest says the treasure is not in a mine… it’s dangerous. If you’re in a place that’s dark, contains snakes / spiders, it’s also probably not the right solve.
