  1. I found this Vietnam war era coin/token while researching, if it helps anybody. In TTOTC he talks about nickels, dimes. And buying lunch. Notice the initials F.F.

    • I like it Bob, my adventure behind that blaze I showed you all is connected to that but I am not sure how to tie it in to my story – if I ever get it finished writing it that is. 🙂

      • If you ever do finish writing your story, Wolf…and you think you’re done…you can always go back to the beginning and start all over again…with a fresh set of eyes and a new perspective. It will be like starting for the very first time.

          You are very wise! That is why it is taking so long. Your advise is exactly what I am doing. It is excellent advice!

          • Hi Wolf,

            Once in a blue moon I came up with something good. Now I just need to make it twice in blue moons!

            I like the graphic at the top of the page. Was that Mike’s doing?

            It’s a good thing Santa brought this Chromebook for the 7-year-old. My desktop computer stopped working. I think it’s the video card since it seems to be running, but the video screen is blank. It shouldn’t make a BIG difference since the 7-year-old was playing on there much of the time anyway. 🙂

  2. Looks like FF is still dropping hints to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Angel Fire.

    1/Lt. Aide de Camp on Dals blog could be a hint to this other Important First Lieutenant.

    • True Bob, but there is also something very interesting that relates to this story and also to his “Experienced Skinner” story. Note that knife was used to skin wolves and I don’t think he was talking about Francis Wolfe! 😉

      • The Wolf – Do you think that French ancestor,…of the North American line of the St. Claire family,…went back to France for a visit?:

        Robert Louis Stevenson travelled through the region in 1878 and described the incident in his book Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes, in which he claims that at least one of the creatures was a wolf:

        For this was the land of the ever-memorable Beast, the Napoleon Bonaparte of wolves. What a career was his! He lived ten months at free quarters in Gévaudan and Vivarais; he ate women and children and “shepherdesses celebrated for their beauty”; he pursued armed horsemen; he has been seen at broad noonday chasing a post-chaise and outrider along the king’s high-road, and chaise and outrider fleeing before him at the gallop. He was placarded like a political offender, and ten thousand francs were offered for his head. And yet, when he was shot and sent to Versailles, behold! a common wolf, and even small for that.

        Clearly,…they shot the wrong wolf. And are you any relation to that St. Claire line, btw??? Well,…since you live in Canada and all,…and are interested in all things Holy Grail,…I had to ask….

          Now he is talking about pigs there was an old fairy tale with pigs and homes that we used to tell the “kids” and I believe there was a wolf in that story too!

  3. And if no one should ever think of me when I have passed this vale, it will be of no consequence, for I have finally found my way and am at peace with all off it.

    “Just take the chest and go in peace ”

    Oh, but he was not at peace with all of it. Thus the reason for the treasure hunt.

  4. Here’s another tidbit:
    Not sure if anyone has any thoughts on this but…on pg. 97 – “Covered Philadelphia with his thumb”…Theres’s most likely some hidden meaning here… Rolling Stones played this song in 1981 in Philadelphia…
    or possibly…”Under my thumb” as well as “wrapped around my finger” are phrases that come from falconry. If I understand correctly, when one holds a falcon, the jess, or leash is held under the thumb and/or wrapped around a finger in order to keep control of the bird.

    We went thru this on Dals site andDale-mailed FF and FF wrote back that he did not write this.He doesn’t know how his name got on it.

    Just tryin to keep facts straight.

    I suspect there are lots of people planting clues on the internet. Maybe they think its funny to lead people astray? Maybe they are searching also and dont want people getting too close?

    • Deb – that could be – but in this case I do belive FF wrote this and then denied it. If you read it – sounds exactly like him. I just don’t see someone making this up. The person “making it up” would also have to be a pilot just to know everything about the bombs. He speaks of the meadow, waterfall, etc. Somehow, I think this is important.

      • inthechaseto,

        I remember the article that was brought up on Dal’s blog that Forrest denied writing and it wasn’t this one. It was the one about a pilot who flew an SR-71 and would have been much younger than Forrest. Here’s the reply posted by Dal from Forrest that appears on May 15th in The Nine Clues – Section 18:

        dalneitzel.com/2013/04/04/the-nine-clues-part-eighteen/

        “I asked Forrest about that story a year or so ago. He said he never flew the SR-71.
        Just to be sure I asked him again a few minutes ago. His Reply:
        Dal, that story was not written by me and I have never flown the 71. I forwarded that story to someone and somehow my name got on it as the author. Not true. Will you announce that please. f”

        This is a link to the article in question:
        clipperpioneers.com/NL08/CPNews_apr08.pdf

        His name is on it but he didn’t write it. Amazingly, so many people refused to believe it wasn’t him even though FF would have been in his 50’s at the times mentioned and long-since retired from the AF. SMH

        Peacemaker

      • I do want to add that I just read the article again = and now I belive he did indeed write it. There are too many things in it only he would know. Perhaps he doesn’t like the political things he said. It certainly sounds like his writing and when he speaks about bombs – I’ve heard him talk just like that. I think the part about the waterfall is a huge clue in this chase. He writes that the birds are flying over it and now I know why. It’s indian lore that the birds created the rainbow when flying over the waterfall. So since that is a major clue for me – do I want to belive he wrote it. Yes I do.
