A New Mexico multimillionaire wants you to get off the couch and go searching for hidden treasure.
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.

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.
