here is a copy of the riddles, i know where the warm water ends refers to a hot spring, possibly flowing into a creek. the brown house sounds like an old mine to me. lots of canyons in there area but it reminds me of the jemez area, battleship hot springs are there and a creek runs the whole length of the red rock canyon.

so this cat i am learning stashed over 20 troy ounces of gold some ancient jewelry among some other gem coated things in this chest. he also wrote a book which may give more insight as to what the riddles mean.

Well, he's either a generous man or a master of the practical joke. Will we ever find out? Good luck in your quest, Scrapper!

Unless some fool find this and opens his mouth about and then has to give it back to the goverment we will never know and rightly so. Who would be so stupid to tell if you did find it.....ok most of us when the excitement hits....lol.

There are many people out there that do nothing other than search for these type of treasures. So if's actually out there....good luck!

A classic treasure-hunting story if anybody is inclined to read it to stoke the fires for your quest. Poe at his finest:
