    I can't believe someone actually found it. I wish they'd at least show the contents. This feels like something that has been popping up every few years without a glamorous payoff for us bystanders.

    From the article:

    "The guy who found it does not want his name mentioned. He’s from back East," he said, adding that it was confirmed from a photograph the man sent him.

    Fenn, an 89-year-old Vietnam War veteran, author and artifacts dealer, said he hid a chest full of goods in the Rocky Mountains in 2010.

    He told The New Mexican last year an estimated 350,000 people have gone on the hunt. Many quit their jobs to do so. Some died in the search.

    Saying he wanted others to take part in an old-fashioned adventure, he published clues online and in a 24-line poem published in his autobiography, The Thrill of the Chase.

    In 2017, he told The New Mexican the chest weighs 20 pounds and its contents weigh another 22 pounds. He said he delivered the chest to its hiding place over two separate trips, by himself.

    I believe the saying is "something something idiot for a client", right?

    Andersen, who has been licensed to practice law in Illinois since 1998, is representing herself.
