  1. The Wolf:
    E* – another good observation and to expand on that – I am sure you are aware “down” is also referred to the center or heart?

    E*, Bob, great discussion, love the king Solomon references because they relate to my solve. (downloading the book on queen of Sheba)
    in an ironic twist, I lost both large toe nails hiking 7 hours up and down a very steep hill Lin hiking boots. Nails take forever to grow back – I’ve been hiding my toes inside uggs – thankfully it’s winter.

    Love the heart/down reference. The center of WOOD/tree is also called the heart.

    • lia – “If you are brave and in the wood”,…brave, courage,…to “have heart”! The images you posted are beautiful.

      And speaking of King Solomon,…who I nominated for his legendary wisdom,…this image is for you (because of that Leggo pizza video you posted):

      Might I also recommend the book or the movie, “Wild”?

      Were her feet really badly damaged from her too-small boots?

      Yes, like in the Wild movie, her feet suffered because her boots were too small, causing blisters and claiming six of her toenails, which she pulled or rubbed off. -Wild Memoir

      Did Cheryl really order a free new pair of boots and lose her existing boots?

      Yes, but it doesn’t happen exactly like it does in the movie. She doesn’t find out that she can get a new pair of boots until a later stop (not while at Kennedy Meadows) after the damage had already been done to her feet. In the book, Rex informs her that the outdoors store REI (Recreational Equipment, Inc.) has a satisfaction guarantee, and since her boots caused blisters because they were too small, REI will replace them for free. “…and now it was official: I loved REI more than I loved the people behind Snapple lemonade,” writes Strayed. Like in the movie, she picks her new boots up farther along the trail (at Castle Crags) and in the meantime, she accidentally knocks one of her old boots over the edge of a mountain and tosses the other one in despair.

    Yes, vgboss,…especially if your heart takes you all the way down,…to Antarctica!

    vgboss:

    Those penguins know that home means tucked in with those you love. Somehow, I think those sentiments are/were important to Forrest too. Thanks everyone for your thoughtful posts.

    • Bob – Right!!!! 🙂

      Like when Louie Zamperini and his crew,…went on that ill-fated search mission,…in that Green Hornet plane,…looking “quickly down” for hours,…and then his buddy, Phil…the pilot,….had to put them into a dive into the ocean.

  3. It seems scrapbook 130 is calling attention to the Michelin moccasins on page 85 of this chapter. With war phrases
    like-
    wear (war) weary
    guard dog
    fabrique en vietnam
    off duty
    usage wounds
    40 years ago- 1975 Vietnam era
    And then the exposed toes in the sock picture, sandals.

    The title of the scrapbook- Not TIRED yet.
    So is safe to say he is hinting to the viet cong home made sandals. Home made=house slippers.

    But why? Because if you’ve been wise and found the blaze look quickly down

    In this case the blaze is the hidden capital letter F found in TTOTC in two drawings. First on page 31. Where Bessie’s tail is tied to the stool leg, under the loop in the tail, see the capital F. Second, on page 111. First little girl left of teacher in the bow on the back of her dress, see the capital F.
    Two distinct hidden capital F ‘s.

    And what they have in common is, when you look quickly down from these blazes is feet! Back to page 31, cows feet, the 4 feet of the stool, FF’s feet (bare) and the feet of 6 cats. 34 feet total.
    Back to page 111. We have 7 people totaling 14 feet. So what does feet have to do with the location of the bronze box?
    Treasure or gifts are laid at the king’s feet. Then who is this king? Forrest Fenn. And right here is where I’m stuck, chasing rainbows, another dead end. (Sigh)

    • Here at Mikes blog we all know who that girl is in whose possession are the finest red sparkly slippers, Dorothy !

      Good witch- “there they are and there they’ll stay! Why don’t you run along before somebody drops a house on you too !

      Hey Forrest! Click Cuddles heels three times and say. . .
      I wish Bob was dead,
      I wish Bob was dead ,
      I wish Bob was dead.

      Ha ha ha ha ! Fat chance ole dude!

      Lol

    • Bob – I just read an interesting book:

      www.goodreads.com/book/show/18775438-the-legend-of-sheba

      So, naturally,…I found it intriguing that you wrote,

      “Treasure or gifts are laid at the king’s feet. Then who is this king? Forrest Fenn.”

      Did you know that the Queen of Sheba was rumored to have the feet of a goat??? She laid some pretty impressive gifts at King Solomon’s feet,…when she arrived. And she bared her feet before him.

      • E- thanks for that info on Sheba. Follows my train of thought. So let’s move a little farther down the trail of tracks….we are wise and found the capital F blaze(s). We looked quickly down, and found feet. Now, our quest has ceased? It’s all about the feet? How?
        Ok, but tarry scant with marvel gaze. Whose feet? Solomon’s? The disciples?(students) Jesus washed the disciples feet. And then once we find these feet we take the chest and go in peace. See, I’m stuck. Help!
        When Bur and I searched Buffalo Bill Cody’s grave site at Golden we used a metal detector extensively at the foot of the grave. Extending beyond the grave probably 30 feet in an ever increasing arc. And down the hill. We spent a good 3 hours in that area alone and only left when satisfied it wasn’t buried there. If then the feet we seek are indeed Forrest’s, how can that be? Unless with word play we change feet to feat and must decide which accomplishment of his holds the key. (Sigh, I’m tellin ya E this is wearin me out.)

    • Bob,
      Your observation in this chapter is fundamental to my solution where I discovered my blaze. I was saving this for when I discuss my solution but since you mentioned it I will help you get “unstuck.”

      Notice Forrest says today we searchers have to get back to the poem. Thus if you look at the line in the poem –

      “I’ve done it tired” (as in truck tire)

      and if you have observed the story where Forrest had a truck load of tires in the truck when tires were being rationed. All those Mrs. Ford discussions is about Ford the car manufacturer. Ford truck tires ran over “Coca” in his art where he was caught fibbing about when he ran over that can.

      I could provide a few more examples but I am sure you get the point. All of his shoe discussions appear to be linked to this chapter.

      Did you see the two capital “FF”s in the photo near my blaze as in
      FF
      75

      You are correct 40 years ago is 1975 or ’75 Coincidence?

      Or maybe those Israelites that walked in the desert for 40 years feeding on manna. Pinyon nuts are known as manna of the mountains.

      King is interesting – I have many interpretations but one I find interesting is King of the Jews where the “wise” men followed the bright star (thought to be a comet) bearing gifts. You know the story. There is another King that I think is interesting but I don’t want to spoil the story.

      Did you notice what was conveniently hanging in the background of today’s video (over Fenn’s right shoulder)?

      I have been holding this stuff back for sometime because I thought I would save it for a book that I am trying to write… which is wearing me out!

        Pistachios: Yes
        Pinon Nuts: No

        Pistachios date back to the Holy Lands of the Middle East, where they grew wild in the high desert regions. Legend has it that lovers met beneath the trees to hear the pistachios crack open on moonlit nights for the promise of good fortune. A rare delicacy, pistachios were a favorite of the Queen of Sheba, who demanded all her land’s production for herself and her court.

        See: my other post in response to Bob about page 62 in TFTW. The object over Forrest’s right shoulder is a Crux Immissa. 🙂
