Main Street Falconer NY Sunday October 28, - "Baggerween" Our version of trunk or treat with Baggers! TTOTC appears to have been co-written, with clues added to complement the poem. In summary, TTOTC does not seem to be a proper addendum in the truest meaning of the word, and that is what Smarty seems to be asking for.
You would have to be adventurous, self aware and a day dreamer sorta speak like Forrest to find the chest and imagine his poem and clues to come up with the solution. If Forrest says that it can be solved by a redneck, I do believe that. Some searchers overrate the complexity of the search. Knowing about head pressures, foot pounds, acre feet, bible verses, Latin, cubic inches, icons, fonts, charts, graphs, formulas, curved lines, magnetic variation, codes, depth meters, riddles, drones or ciphers, will not assist anyone to the treasure location, although those things have been offered as positive solutions.
Smarty, I agree, this was one of the most useful things that Forrest has said. Surprisingly few people appear to have taken notice. To assume that Forrest Fenn is a treasure hunt setting genius is folly. He may be a genius in many other walks of life, but entirely useless at helping us to locate his treasure.
I think it will be sad if Forrest dies without the world knowing how good his puzzle is, and without being able to share the post-hunt celebrations. I happen to know that there is no solution anywhere else in the world, not even in the chest. I have strong reason to believe it will be found while he is alive in the summer of , that is.
But I also have strong reason to believe that although the successful solve may then be publicized, the identity of the finder will be carefully guarded. This is all my opinion only. Good luck in your search. I have to build a logical sequential path to that knowledge by constructing clues in poetry format.
IMO Forrests poem does not do that. In the several years I have been following this, I have come to see Forrest as an honest person. And he says that the poem, if well-studied, will lead one directly to the chest.
If you believe Forrest. So, it involves character assessment and a degree, faith. Forrest usually makes up his own rules, does he not?
Which is probably not very good for those looking for this chest. Thou who wish to find it by a universal set of rules or standards will probably come up short. Maybe he never wanted it found after all? Of course he not ever going to say that. Lots of variables in play!! He went from place to poem. We have to go the opposite direction, from poem to place. In the end, only he knows whether the poem can actually lead someone to this place. Personally, I believe it will eventually lead someone there.
Project Why, your last word here is fascinating. What do you mean by appropriate? Forrest said that most of the words in the poem are useful for finding the treasure, and just solving a few words and happening across the treasure would be bad for me, if Forrest has gone or refuses to explain all.
This is for a million dollar prize and so I expect the hints to be extremely difficult to figure out and that is fine with me. I have no perfect solution, but plenty of places to search and have some more fun as I see the Rockies. Vague and obtuse are not necessarily the same as difficult. Is there something here? Are we being told again to make our own rules for success and work within them? Testing and tweaking what? It sounds like an absolutely fascinating process,.
What are we missing? Thousands of people always thinking and still no chest…….. Why were those that got the first two clues correct, which IMO also includes the correct starting point, ….. Some had the beginning correct a long time ago, ….. There has been plenty of that, and some very creative thoughts and deep research by many searchers. I think the problem is vagueness.
The conventional interpretation implies that they have reached the right answer for the right reasons. Never seen so much intelligent conversation, between Tammara and Helen you guys are knocking it out of the park. In going through some of your posts here, would it be fair to summarize that either 1 Forrest is not such a great puzzle creator, because the meaning of his hidden information is too ambiguous or 2 Forrest is an excellent puzzle creator who hid exact information in the puzzle?
If one were to lean toward 1, it immediately creates a psychological barrier against solving the puzzle, because why would one devote time and the full engine of mental machinery to go after a non-existent solution. Is this the dilemma? Project Why — Great post! What is he sitting on???:.
I guess it would be three parts, though:. The plinth being kinda like a engraved stone stela,…the part with the words on it. And if I were to choose my final resting place,…I might also choose to be buried at my church in the mountains. In a place as beautiful as this one 0: We would later conclude that this log structure probably belonged to Pete Forte and the marker delineated the boundary between the National Forest and the old homestead. I have considered that a certain property I found,…might have originally been a homestead,…or a railroad owned property lots of info.
I will be looking for a few of those boundary markers,…in and around my spot. Mark J, poetry is not the point here. This is about a message that leads to a treasure. What sort of rules might they be, and how would they be different from the rules that everyone else would understand? I believe TTOTC teaches us his rules and therefore there is a methodology to solve this if we can figure out the hints.
In the book, I can see that Forrest copies ideas from other people, like quotations and words such as flutterby.
If so, what are they? If not, how do we know that they are really the rules that he uses? What if I tell you that the treasure is on Bugaboo Mountain, and that my rule is that I only tell the truth Is it produced for its literary merit? It was produced to provide clues to pinpoint the location of a tangible treasure chest. My original post gave the reasons why I think it has not been solved so far, and why it may never be solved.
Road maps are logical and laid out so that the average person can interpret them as easily as possible to reach the desired end point. Helen is dead on. In an attempt to keep thinking positively, you can continue to argue that everyone is just misinterpreting, not thinking enough etc. When the reality is, that to correctly solve prove anything that has a complex solution I. Has multiple steps in the solution. Otherwise, as you progress through your solution, your chances of achieving a correct proof at the end, is greatly diminished.
This poem has no way of doing that with the resources provided. Thank you Tamara, you put that far more eloquently than I could. Going back to my earliest point on this thread, I suppose that one of the points I was trying to make is that the poem is hard enough to solve without Forrest throwing out more vague and obtuse comments. Scratching my head wondering where the decoder ring is. Close earth, the problem is that people have been constantly misrepresenting what Forrest actually said.
I believe that Forrest was never implying that we could solve the poem in a vacuum. I think that he expects us to apply a little general knowledge, perhaps some wordplay and yes, a little imagination, applied to a good map or Google Earth. We only have best guess, ambiguous solutions because the poem does not seem to provide an internal cross-check. Some people keep repeating what forrest has said over and over….. Close earth, the tools necessary to solve the poem are listed right here.
FF has told us much of this. Imagination, such as that used by a year-old Forrest Fenn. And please note what his approximate age now is. It IS important in applying the needed imagination. Decent command of English as spoken by a typical American 3.
A good other map. I found that Mapquest is sufficient. Knowledge of customary, in English rules of capitalization of words 6. A few hundred honest hours of your focused time. The above worked for me. This is all just my opinion. Good luck to all searchers, and please stay SAFE when searching! I pretty much agree and well stated with everything except the last line of the quote. The last line seems like somewhat a statement of frustration.
I tend to think that there must be ways to prove the clues are correct. I changed that with my last solution. I now believe very strongly that one can prove those clues with just the poem but it is very difficult.
Boots on the ground, is not a definitive method of checking the accuracy of solutions at the various points of a complex problem.
It is a necessary way of verifying, but only for the end game. Is the chest there? Is your solution completely wrong? Did you start out wrong? Where you wrong at the turn at the last feet? Do you throw out your solution completely, or do you rework your solution for your final feet? I tend to agree with Helen.
Extremely critical point, if it were possible to be sending up flares here, they would fill the post. Forrest has dared us to find the TC and his special place. He said it would be difficult but not impossible. Those are the rules. I think the placement of the blaze in the middle of the poem is confirmation of the preceding clues.
I could guess the distance to the chest. This is about his life. When asked about searchers getting arrested he said this:. We are not searching for FFs life, we are searching for a tangible treasure chest. She has certainly had much more experience with her 60 treasure hunts than most of us and her argument that treasure hunts that have no established rules, but are subject to being solved by interpretation, are less likely to be sucessfully solved.
That it might never be found? In any case, we are engaged in the proverbial apples and oranges debate. No one is denying. Provided everyone keeps an open mind and their critical thinking skills intact. Helen may be wrong, or she may be right.
Time will bear out the truth. But her bringing the matter up, was a testament to her courage and logical thinking. Are you and mdavis related? You may actually have a chance. Helen, like I said before, you pose some good questions and a spot on reality check.
Why would anyone want to waste my time? I can go do all these things anytime I want to. He really had no way to test any of this out to determine just how difficult it could be before he hid it.
For all we know and all he knows, it very well could be impossible. Just looking at it, it does seem easy enough to superimpose this poem to a precise spot on a map. The vagueness and ambiguities overwelm. But it could be made easier through his participation and maybe it has been? I mean, no one will definitely know for sure until it is found or unless he confirms it.
And his participation is also a two edged sword. It can lead to making it more difficult with too much noise to filter through as we have now. I just wish when he answered something, he made it a little more definitive rather than the vagueness of it meaning so many things.
And we ARE missing it somehow………?? Without figuring out the first clue and where to start, ….. But also as we have come to understand, that may not even be enough. He got what he wanted though, ….. We will just have to wait and see and maybe one day the story will tell itself.
Project Why, thank you. He has likened finding WWWH to baking a cake — we need all the ingredients to make it right. If getting into the country is what you want, there are far cheaper and environmentally friendly ways to do it locally.
If Forrest has inspired you, let that be his legacy. So getting back to my original point…. For now, we may be stranded on that desert island, with a torn and faded treasure map.
It may make sense to sit back under that palm tree, relax, and sip on a coconut, admiring the sights and sounds of nature around you. And yet, keep a weather eye on the horizon for a fresh wind…. Helen — Thanks for the refreshing discussions you have engendered here, they have been few and far between for a while now.
It is this concept of making a cake that caused me to rethink everything, go through all my research and writings, and reformat and rethink all of it the last few months. I look at it this way; all the correct ingredients are needed in order to find the chest.
Then there are all of his other statements, writings, posts, comments, etc. The troublesome part is that there is no measurements for these ingredients, so we are left to experiment and figure it out. It has given a perspective to the poem that helps eliminate some of its vagueness, made the first clue unmistakably clear and confirmed the hints for the first clue I had found in TTOTC before discovering this word and made the other clues in the poem understandable, at least once I am able to pin them down in the poem.
I say understandable, because it is only enough to point me in the right direction and provide understanding of what to look for with the other clues and have confidence in their solutions as I figure them out. My word that is key does not spell everything out, allowing one to just go take a walk and pick up the chest.
It is like f said, the clues are difficult to figure out and will require a lot of thinking, analysis, planning, and imagination, amongst other things; even with all the ingredients, the cake still takes time to bake.
I have been to my search area a number of times, I go, test out ideas and thoughts, take pictures, and try to take it all in, then I go back home, think about all of it some more, study the pictures and the maps, and look at the geography of the area. Slowly it is making sense probably because I am slow , and I keep asking myself each time I get one step further, what took me so long to see that?
The clues ARE difficult to figure out. I know I am just as likely to be wrong as everyone else is, and has been. I have enough confidence from what I have discovered to keep that hope glimmering, but I will not be convinced I am right until I am staring at the chest. Oh Hi Helen, Sorry, Jenny let me know that you are a nice person, just making fun. Lots of people are much smarter than me….. I just Love Forrest, because he is So Real.
I just Love what he said! He makes his own Rules….. My Kind of a guy….. I doubt they had any confidence in their solves or even knew they were correct. But yeah, I do see your point though. These are instructions are they not? First, gotta find the right store where all the ingredients actually exist, then bring them all home and put it together.
Astree — Good one! Helen your logic is like a soft spring breeze. You remind me of my dear grandmother, who was a writer, and also named Helen. The child I try to show the poem to is an 8 year old from Texas in But is about two years too early for it to work. Alternate definitions of the word Capitalization are: He paid for it. Probably never meant for it to be found. And for most he probably is………. No set rules here. He hid it — we try to find it.
The only game being run here was by Helen and Tamara. There was no game being run by anyone Crazy. You engaged in what was a classic debate and in that forum, invariably the most logical argument is the one that prevails. Yours was not the most logical. But good luck to you in the search. Helen and Tammara that was some brilliant critical thinking instead of endless brown nosing which leads a man or woman no where.
What we need on all the blogs is constructive critical thinkers rather than mushy endless dripping SAP. Ed — I agree! And I like that the fine point you made,…was made by a fine searcher,…whose first name initial is an E. A very large Nine Pound Brown was caught thereabouts, btw.
Beyond the riffle is a short bench meadow section where the river divides around islands. Weeds, deep undercut banks and potholes in the bottom provide excellent holding for large trout. A short, deep run is followed by another small meadow stretch, then a half-mile-long riffle, mostly unfishworthy, leads into a curving run that ends at upper Nine Mile Hole. The problem I would have, however, with applying any of it to the puzzle, is that it is information wayyyyyy outside the context of the puzzle.
There is more, though, that applies to the essence of this reply from Forrest, and that is that he HAS given an indication of some of his capitalization rules, and these ARE hints that are helpful. In addition, like ee cummings, you can infer from his response to the question here, that he does NOT follow the standard rules, as he uses caps 4 times, but not for his own initial. Cummings,…or this nice poem sans capitalization ,…which also mentions the heart:.
Astree — A footrace with Brad against whom? And Brad agrees to star in the Academy Award-winning movie we will all make later. Astree — Now why would I ever compete with the woman who is going to help direct,…and also produce,…my Academy Award-winning movie????
Since Brad will be playing Forrest,…HE will have one of those menacing Brown Bears,…hot on his heels,…and I will be way ahead of the pack because I am hiking,…aggressively and frequently,…at the very altitude,…or higher,…where I believe the Bronze Chest to be. In my movie,…Forrest has decided to escort me,…a fine lady,.. But I think that was back in It would be a much bigger decision for Brad to forsake all that money now.
But I am sure all his kids,…and Angelina,…would be impressed if he did. All the profits from the movie could go toward the Vital Ground effort. And the Grizzes,…everywhere,…would be forever thankful. And our beloved Bart the Bear would smile down on Brad from Heaven.
What could be nicer??? All parens are my own. If you get through to Forrest, Please kindly inform him that I have a severe case of rattlesnakeaphobia, and would love him to escort my partner and me through Wyoming in June.
There are plenty who are going by the rules of capitalization. Learning from forrest and Elmyr De Hory! Very good discussion on why the home of Brown is capitalized. Why is this important? So where and I going with all this? Life magazine is very similar to Time Maganzine but it has a logo of the Brownie. A Brownie is a mythical creature best described by John Brandt in his description of Shetland:.
One has to keep in mind the poem will be solved with imagination and third order hinting. Subtle hinting requires disguise and linking many subtles together: Anyone of these hints in isolation is subtly insignificant but in combination these aberrations form a powerful suggestion that Brownie is the home of Brown.
The Brownie is also a category of Girl Scouts in grades two to three ages I tried to post this on hoD but it appears Goofy is keeping all my good posts to himself and deleting them. Someone might want to pass on to those over there since I started to talk about this over there.
Wolf, thanks for adding your intelligent, researched discussion about brown, and for the introduction of new ideas. I appreciate you sharing with everyone. Worth paying attention in my opinion. I respectfully begin with with a clip from Helen, who provided much of the spark here:. Some of the responses on this thread provide additional perspective on this idea, and some worthwhile tangents as well, and I will get to those.
Despite the fact that he may have spent 15 years on his poem, he is a novice at setting a chase. It is logically almost impossible for Forrest to know just how difficult his poem is to solve.
The only way to determine it is by unleashing the poem on the world and seeing what happens, which he has done, and all of the poem-solvers and searchers are testing out his theory. We do in fact know that the poem is not real easy to solve, as it has not been done yet.
It is at least difficult enough to go 5 years without being solved. But there is the potential for the poem to be close to impossible to solve.
And being an experienced treasure hunter, as is Shaun Whitehead, Helen reveals a frustration with a novice huntsetter. Many really good poker players just hate to sit at a table with non-professional newbies. The novice is more random, unpredictable, going on emotion, whim, and mood, whatever. So the top poker player is really thrown for a loop by the novice. This, in a sense, is what Helen and Shaun are touching upon, and which I have posted about in the past.
Forrest has no record as a huntsetter. This is a reasonable idea. However, if one were to become like Forrest, and put herself in his shoes and his mind, just what kind of mind would that take? Some might say that getting to know Forrest too well may be a hindrance, a distraction, as many claim TToTC, tftw, and all of the scrapbooks to be. Would it be better to just find it in the road, pick it up and begin?
Can you really become the Forrest? This is sensitive thinking again, and echoes what William said. I could go on. Deal with the poem on your own terms, and the solution may become known. I do believe that the poem IS designed like an architectural plan to lead one straight to the treasure. For many reasons, I do not believe that the chest will be found yet the mystery of the poem will still remain unknown.
Someone may find the chest and stay quiet, and searchers will never be completely free of doubt as to whether the chest is still really out there. PW has offered pretty straightforward words of wisdom right there. If your brain is quite tangled in knots, read the above. I can think of no topic that has consumed more blog threads, hand-wringing posts, concern and worry other than these comments about the distance of searchers, the feet, the feet, and on and on.
How will this speculation, especially if it is not fully sorted out, really help you solve the poem? The rules or tactics of other huntsetters need not apply here.
The poem itself will answer the question of what its parameters are. The poem may or may not have rules, but it certainly has its own Way. When the reality is, that to correctly solve prove anything that has a complex solution i.
Thanks for some good input in this thread, Tamara. Do you think that a word that is key will help you in the middle of the poem? She has certainly had much more experience with her 60 treasure hunts than most of us and her argument that treasure hunts that have no established rules, but are subject to being solved by interpretation, are less likely to be successfully solved.
Discussion is a better term than refutation. I think that it is logical to presume that a treasure hunt based upon interpretation, with all things being equal, may be less likely to be successfully solved.
But again, this is speculation that cannot be affirmed or denied without the solution. It simply is tough noogies to speculate about what kind of poem it is, what type of clues are employed, are they interpretive or dead-on specific about particular, self-referential solutions, etc.
You will only answer those questions, and determine how good of a huntsetter Forrest is, or even know how you really feel about how complex or simple this hunt is, or how you feel about its ending, by finding the precision of the poem. The vagueness and ambiguities overwhelm. PW, you are correct that Forrest cannot know in advance how difficult the poem is, and the answer lies in the test that is unfolding as we speak.
Just realize how easy it would be to make an impossible poem- a moron could do it! So somehow Forrest needed I would hope to hit the middle ground. But where exactly is his middle ground? How could Forrest create a poem that was just right; not too hot and not too cold? Many people feel that it is beneficial to hear every word Forrest has to offer, and some try to steer clear and see it as more noise.
Would you prefer to sit in a room at a monastery with a parchment of the poem and be left undisturbed? My brain boggles to work out how this. Yes, Helen, I feel that it is logical to need to solve for wwwh in order to continue, but you need all the ingredients to make it right. So if you need to solve for wwwh prior to understanding the rest of the clues, then how is this possible?
That is of course for each searcher to determine, but I believe that the poem is written in such a way that the self-referential aspects of it will provide the clarification of correctness or incorrectness of clues. In other words, there is a continual turning back to the source. Kind of an unwinding of the thread of oil in the turning glycerin cylinder to find out where the drops of oil originate.
And if we think of the poem Little Gidding that Forrest has apparently associated with the poem, this makes even more sense. Congratulations to those who made it through this book I just wrote!!! Thanks for your congratulations, JCM, as I did read every word.
And as others have stated in this thread, I hope and do not expect for that anticipated event to not outlive Forrest and the rest of us. Thanks to Helen and all the other noble efforts of this thread. Halogetter — I did read every word of your post,…which included those of all the other fine searchers,…twice. Thank you for taking the time to consider all of these thoughts,…and to respond to them with your wise insights which I miss terribly,…so please do not stop posting here,…and join us over with the A-Team again soon, OK?
All of the requirements to that end were within me, save looks and talent, which is a failing I still am fraught to overcome. I felt better after my mom told me that being broke was sanitary….
When I reached middle age I forgave myself for not having been nominated best actor and started writing prose, which resulted in the creation of a few books. There is still time to win that Best Actor category,…for your Academy Award-winning movie that we will make. I have thought about a movie about all this, and since Hollyweird is so hung-up on youth and beauty, my first choice of an actor to portray FF would be Woody Harrelson.
Many of the searchers could probably portray themselves, if interested and available. Unfortunately, there could be a little obstacle to overcome in the actual shooting of some of the footage. But only a little bit of onsite footage. Halogetter, great to see you back. Just finished reading your synopsis of opinions, thoroughly enjoying your intelligent analysis of Forrest, the huntsetter… and the rest of us.
Not sure where I fit on your 3 bears scale of intelligence. Thank you for taking time to present thoughtworthy discussions all. Engaging in your thought process made an enjoyable evening! But then,…as usual,…I googled that story,…remembering I had found a different version for it.
Nice to see you posting again, and well-presented summary of ideas. Are you still plugging away at this full speed, but just not participating in the blogs anymore? Everything Forrest said makes sense now. Of course, we have hundreds thousands? The answers may not be nearly as complicated as you are making them.
Forrest appears to be indicating that the deep research that many searchers are employing is not necessary to find his treasure. Astree, I think all of the possibilities that you mentioned, number 8 is the most unlikely.
Many times Forrest has only mentioned the child in response to a specific question about children. Show the Masquerade solution to your favorite bright 10 year old and watch the expression on their face. Thanks for your responses. I certainly understand your reservations about 8, and I think only the solution would give us a chance to judge that; but, I think as you and Tamara have previously indicated, that it would be one of the criteria for a good puzzle.
But, what I was trying to say was that they might have some very good better than most adult ideas about how to start it. It is offered as an alternate possibility. Forrest has emphasized repeatedly, to look at the poem. I found that in my first three weeks of online research, btw,…in March of They are known to pull many an unsuspecting fly fisherman under,…in the current:.
I did see some of what you called negative bias, but I read it more as inherent frustration, which I tried to address.
First, having read virtually everything that Astree has ever written, this list surprised me somewhat. Some people might mistakenly view Astree as someone who is wasting time with all those aspects that Forrest criticized as being offered as positive solutions, which Helen correctly quoted above. You can never tell which line of investigation will illuminate something basic that you might have missed.
Back to the list: This does not mean that external research will not help, and I have done tons of it. There is great precision here, yet in a very curious way the precision only comes into focus when the correct thread is recognized. Otherwise the poem seems vague and applicable to limitless solutions. The nature of its precision is in part that it is camouflaged by a multitude of apparently legitimate yet incorrect paths. The poemness is critical, and used by Forrest for important reasons, I believe.
