Forrest Fenn, 82, believes too many Americans spend their free time watching TV or playing video games. He hopes the bounty he hid — a chest filled with millions of dollars in gold coins, diamonds and emeralds, among other gems — will prompt some to explore the outdoors. "Get your kids out in the countryside, take them fishing and get them away from their little hand-held machines," he told TODAY.Poem here:http://dailynightly.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/02/28/17136267-mu...Fenn posted clues to the hidden treasure in a poem on his website, which crashed soon after news got out about the bounty. As of Thursday, his website appears to be back up. With Fenn's permission we have re-posted the poem online, excerpted from his self-published book, "The Thrill of the Chase," where it also appears.
