  1. scrapbook 171 at Dals blog….forrest says quote- ” the secret is not to get too excited about the little things”. yeah, i hear you old man, loud and clear. scrapbook 171 is a hint to archaeology and museums. yet, the idiots at Dals are once again going over photos and drawings with a magnifying glass. and dissecting his every word. JUST STOP IT you guys. look at the big picture. archaeology and museums! and the last photo of Forrest napping in the shade. he looks a lot like a mannequin doncha think? funny he mentions the museum of natural history in new york, but not the one he is on the board of directors. well im not surprised.
    and consider the shredded money contest. where did the proceeds go? to a CHILDRENS MUSEUM. yeah, big picture blowing up on my wall. research the Draper Museum of Natural History folks…its all there. even the chest.

  2. tomorrow is National Fossil Day. i know im usually pretty hard on the old man (FF) but not today. i wont make any comments comparing him to a fossil. because FF still gets around pretty good and fossils dont, being lodged in sediment or rock. and fossils are really old, FF is only 86. hes like a young fossil in the larvae stage, wriggling around. so i got him a present for fossil day. its a timex watch with a one year warranty. i dont see any reason to buy him anything at all with more than a one year warranty.

    • Awe come on Bob –

      Why not a ROLEX – they both have an X in them but ROLEX is so much better than a TIMEX – Oh yeah it only has to last a year…… LOL

      Why do watches have an X in the name – do you know?

      And then there are those two watches he removed from the chest – so he probably has plenty of watches. I wonder if they worked?

  3. have you seen the taco bell commercial where the guy is looking at a display of a cave man spearing a wolly mammoth? and hes eating a taco bell burrito and looks real hard at the cave man in the display and it looks just like him? thats cool….makes you appreciate the fact that all the work that goes into making a burrito is done for you. all you have to do is lay down a few bucks at taco bell and in a few minutes, bingo! youre eating a hot fresh burrito. not like cave man days when you had to risk your life to kill a wolly mammoth, clean it, cut it up and take the meat home to the wife to cook. let alone the fact that there were no spices, no tortillas, no hot sauce. i guess the cave men really didnt even have burritos. so whats the point of the commercial? well, just thought i’d throw that out there since we’re talking about museums. Ok, only me is talking about museums.
    never mind.

    anna – I contracted Giardia in the summer of 2012,…while staying at the Alpine Climbers Cabins,…located right below the Tetons. As per usual,..I didn’t get the symptoms until about 10 days later,…and had no clue I had it. I suffered for about six weeks,…before it was diagnosed and I got the drugs. I never drank from streams or even swam in the water there. I most likely got it from the common dish washing area,…where climbers who did do those things also washed their stuff. Anyway,…I had some pretty good lab tests,…pertaining to my “home of Brown” at that time. But I still need to do that other test you mentioned some day. But for now,…Broccolini can be very, very good for you!

    I experienced that same nasty bacterial infection hidden in crystal clear streams too. Someday I’ll disclose which mountain resort accidentally passed it on to all guests. I’ve never been sick in Wyoming so I’m headed for YNP in July.
    But you and your Grizz must prefer searching this state:

  5. Friday, april 24th Cody Wyoming….I was prepared for battle. now I am not very smart but i am smart enough to know not to wear a fedora and carry a bullwhip like Indiana Jones. so i wore a pink button-up long sleeve shirt and a scarlet necktie. with black pants. i arrived early to case the place. found the exits,security cameras, and rabbits. the Draper opens at 10:00 am and it was clear to me that Dr. Preston and his gang had been up thinking all night. sticky notes strewn everywhere. head of security, Mike Brown, shot me a sideways glance and went about his business. i looked directly at him hoping to stir a memory, but it was not to be. it was as if he had never seen me before! my disguise is perfect. Indiana wishes he had it this easy. I toured the gun museum first hoping to draw some warning shots…they sent the cripple..bastards! nice move Chuckie but I was cool. I asked a couple of regular joes about Lucretia Borgia. they said…”huh?” (never mind). then a great big docent overheard. he was every bit of six foot eight. now im worried. not sure if my panasonic 32x O.I.S. can take him out. good thing i loaded a double side. well, here goes…the three days it took to get here…the 157$ in gas…the sausage mcmuffins…all on the line, it comes down to this. i enter the Draper. 10,000ft slow decent. 9,000ft 8,000ft…steady! steady! 7,000ft fire! we got forest fire. go around it man!!! 6,000ft….home of brown!!! 5,000ft…target aquired!! aim! shoot!!!!!! got it! get out NOW!!!!!! I waltzed out the front door. took the chest and went in peace. Indy? ya know what? we would make a great team.

      • deb, i dont have the bracelet or the bronze box nor any money to show you. all i have is a photo of the chest as described by the poem. i think you can view the photo here at mikes blog under “not at the draper” i returned to the draper to see if the McCracken display is still just as i left it in september of 2013, and it is. with minor improvements. there are many correct solutions to FF poem but this one, at the Draper museum is the most important. the minor improvement makes his statement….”show it to your kids, they’ll get it” come to life. by means of an interactive touch screen…do touch, we are responsible.

    • Bob – I had so much fun reading your search story! That was great. I still think you should write scripts,…like for Saturday Night Live. 🙂

      And so,…your solution takes you “canyon down” to the Bronze Chest,…at an elevation of 5,000 ft??? Did I get that right??? And is that “home of Brown” that Beaver Den,…that you mentioned that you saw there on a previous trip??? And did you READ that mysterious Oral History file,…at the McCracken Research Library,…while you were there?????

        (Quote)

        • Bob – I remember the Wood Chest,…but I see an analogy between what you saw at the Draper,…and those elevations,…to where I believe the Bronze Chest is hidden. That is why I asked if the chest you took was located at 5,000 ft. And where is my link to your post? I deserve that,…for all I’ve done here,…don’t I? PLEASE? 😉

            (Quote)

        • Deb – I posted the links to those Oral History files on this site,…over on the Jenny thread, I think. One seemed to be available for check-out with an appointment,…while the other (which is NOT labeled with Forrest’s name,…but may have been in the past) says it is unavailable until 2026.

          • E* according to health conscience searchers on another blog.. apparently we are all overdue for colonoscopies. Proving once again that my doctor is far smarter than I. He knows precisely where the home of brown is without starting at WWWH. They made me stop at WWWH (aka ladies room) before proceeding. 🙂

    • bob – You wrote:

      “I asked a couple of regular joes about Lucretia Borgia. they said…”huh?” (never mind). then a great big docent overheard.”

      When you mentioned “Lucretia Borgia”,…were you making a veiled reference to Lucretia Donati,…and “Da Vinci’s Demons”?:

      • E- it may have been a veiled reference since they didnt know what i was talking about. even the docent wasnt sure. but i found Lucretia which is the nickname Buffalo Bill gave his Springfield buffalo hunting rifle. it was in the Buffalo Bill museum section of the center of the west. it has a broken stock but they have another Springfield rifle next to it to show what it would look like complete. great stuff.

        • Bob – OK,…I found a reference,…but it’s in French,…so we’ll have to paste it into Google translate later,…won’t we, Astree?:

          Le “Lucretia Borgia” était un fusil trapdoor Springfield en calibre .48 (re-chambré par la suite en 50-70) appartenant à Buffalo Bill Cody. Il l’appela ainsi en référence à une pièce de Victor Hugo qu’il aurait vue à St Louis. Lucrèce Borgia, la fille du pape Alexandre VI, fut décrite comme une meurtrière au sang froid dans les pièces et les livres de l’auteur, aussi Cody aurait appelé son fusil en honneur à la meurtrière…

          Or,…now:

          The “Lucretia Borgia” was a trapdoor rifle Springfield .48 caliber (re-chambered later in 50-70) owned by Buffalo Bill Cody. So he called in reference to a play by Victor Hugo that he would have seen in St. Louis. Lucrezia Borgia, daughter of Pope Alexander VI, was described as a cold-blooded killer in the plays and books of the author, as Cody would have called his gun in honor of lethal …

          • E- i dont need to translate…it says buffalo bill named his gun Lucretia because its a bad ass bitch like the one in Hogo’s play.

  6. this chapter’s subtle clue is simply a family watching two guys dig for artifacts. which is exactly what happens when, at the Draper Museum you are standing right next to the chest. not the bronze box. this is families touring the museum at the McCracken display.

  7. Here’s the hidden clue in this chapter. Page 25- “Now, you might be surprised by what you can get in trade if you offer someone a fresh, fried, pineapple pie.”

    fresh, fried =ff= Forrest Fenn
    pineapple pie=pp= Peggy Proctor

    See how the clue is hidden in the nonsense.
    I don’t remember Peggy’s maiden name being mentioned in TTOTC. Maybe this is why.

    • Oh, man, Bob. If you weren’t on Forrest’s “naughty” list before…you are now. If you find the treasure you might need to make a secret arrangement with someone else…for a percentage…so they can claim that they found it…instead of you. Forrest seems like he’d make a good friend and a powerful ally…unless that bridge has been burned. I’m just sayin’. Just an idea from an outside observer. Take it for what it’s worth.

      • JC – I think you are reading more into that than I intended….no I was not suggesting FF was trading Peggy for anything. Shame on you. I’ve already posted plenty to land me on the poop deck. Lol

  8. WELL, let Me tell you the rest of the story!! That story is on ff’s web page blogs, READ the eMAIL section of that story, one that ff replied to some one about shaking the tree. It provided one clue to me about look quickly down. ie: if you are standing on flat ground, to look quickly down, go to the NEAREST hill or peak, so that you CAN look Down.

    • here is the reply, and be WISE advised to seek higher ground made me think of climbing the nearest hill or peak, and you may have to “cross the street” to do it

      Hey Al, thanks for responding to my story. If you want to do me a favor go down to the creek on Inguenhuet’s ranch and shake the trees. If prehistoric Indians fall out maybe you’d be wise advised to seek higher ground pronto. I’d like to know what happened to those great people.

      That is a reply to and email, found on ffs’ wedsite blog;

      • As I re read that , IT seems like a pretty good solve to the phase ‘look quickly down’ just got to get the right spot and this solve may still fit, you may just have to add where the shadow cast itself. If this helps or adds an idea let me musstag at yahoo know about it

  9. Okay, I’ll start this chapter off because I’ve stated it before. Chapter 6 is outrageous, and scientifically so. And more so than anything in TTOTC.

    This story is harder to accept than Bigfoot stories (and I wish they were true), or that there are still Neanderthals living in the remote mountains of central Asia. This chapter makes the rest of the book sound pedestrian, but he handles it in such a matter-of-fact manner.

    Relevant to the Chase or not, this chapter is highly suspect, and I suspect he’s having his way with us.

    • Halogetter,
      Yes there is a lot of mystery in that chapter . It just doesn’t seem to fit with the rest of his life . I think if I had an experience like that , I would have had to follow thru’ and know more about those people , and yet he lets it go as if it’s just another page in his life . I would have thought that would have been fertile grounds for another book .Rebel

    • You all are taking the book much too literally.This story is fiction, never happened. He is pointing at something in the search area to look for.

    • I never bought that story…But you have to admit – F sells it like he lived it. There are however two important hints that I found which point you in the right direction.
