Lugnutz Maps

Friends and fellow chasers, I am publishing my google maps to show the places I am interested in searching for the Fenn Cache.

These are screen shots from Google Maps and I have placed gold stars in all the places I research.

These are the homes of Brown, the warm waters and places that may be significant to Forrest. Heck, some are just based on crazy ideas or something I read about or something another chaser said. Some I probably won’t remember until I come around to them again.

These stars did not exist when I was young but most of the places they represent did exhist.

I make these stars on the map so that if years later something takes me back to the same spot I will know it.

I will attempt to publish the North of Santa Fe map first. I can start a discussion about any star and we can take in in the rabbit hole down!

    Speaking of Taos, I enjoyed our Sun Valley Gallery Walk last night, where I saw several John Moyers paintings at my friend’s Wood River Fine Arts Gallery:

    One Hundred Years Old – $10,700
    Sundown on Taos Mountain – $32,000

    I think I will take up painting. And thank you for your observations about Forrest’s latest scrapbook… they were great! The painting was of a Cheyenne Camp, so is there a Cheyenne reservation right next to the Crow Agency? And how does it connect to the Absarokee Hut, that Forrest was responsible for moving to the Buffalo Bill Museum property?

    Lisa, your comments and research are always astute. The northern Cheyenne People have a small reserve inside the Crow Peoples reserve. So my assumption must be incorrect. I thought it was a crow camp, and was looking for a connection to the main homes of JH & Addy Sharp: Taos, Crow Agency, Mt – Absarokee hut, Hawaii, and Santa Fe.

    I’m now a bit confused. Perhaps the teepee/lodge poles are more important.

    LOL Tom H,
    I agree completely.
    I got kicked off dals site the 1st time in march 2016 for misquoting dul when Forrest actually stated it.

    It was trivial & had emailed F & told him the situation & got reinstated on his site the next morning.

    Hello Forrest,
    I am reaching out to you because my posts on Dal’s site get deleted for the last week except for one last night “h”.
    (there’s more to my email I sent)

    “Jake,
    That site belongs to dal. I have nothing to do with what is posted except my own writings. I will mention your concern to him, but what he does is up to him. My feeling is there is a misunderstanding somewhere. f”

    So F must have contacted mr. dul & got me back on his site only to get booted again in a little over a year for another trivial post where I called dal out on something he said. He doesn’t take criticism well.

    I won’t email F to get me back on again seeing he’s got bigger fish to fry & he knows how dal is.

    It makes me wonder if F liked some of my writings but also know he loves freedom of speech which most here do & have to thank Mike for letting us exorcise them here.

    I’m sure I’m not the only one who has emailed F with their displeasure from dals treatment & was very surprise to get the boot from such a trivial post.

    Kinda funny though, cause I told Goofy & dal to go Fck themselves & still got back on the blog. I never told F the whole story but neither does he. LOL

    Hello, Jake…Et Al.

    There are some interesting goings on at Dal’s site.

    I kinda feel like this guy when I try to post there… 🙂

    • Your comments are not the only ones to disappear over there.
      Many have complained from what I read.

      I think the world is becoming too PC & the ones that enforce it are hypocrites.

      I’m not sure you can say anything without someone being offended including just saying “Hi”.
      Didn’t F get punched by a cowboy for something similar?

      Please don’t point your index finger at me for these problems.
      Clench your fist & point with your thumb & whenever this becomes offensive, point with your elbow.

      Maybe I shouldn’t say or do anything or leave the house where I have to interact with people.

      Where are the Lug maps anyway?

    And was that comment rated P.G. or R or possibly, X?
    yeah Lisa, thats pretty much an X rated comment talkin about my piece pipe. i guess you can go ahead and hit #metoo. I’ll apologize later. lol

    And did Sitting Bull’s Peace Pipe have anything to do with it? And if so, was it a clue or a hint????

    Did you know Sitting Bull had five wives?

    Hello, Bob and Lisa.

    Sorry to interrupt your finely veiled…uhhh…discourse.I don’t know whether to back away slowly or pop some popping corn for a reading marathon. :/

    Having said that I just had to interrupt because I have a question…which you may or may not be able to answer.

    If Sitting Bull had 5 wives…then what did he do the other 2 nights of the week?

    Well JC1117, in answer to your question… just guessing Sitting Bull sat on his tired bum the other two nights. By the way, his name means the fatty portion of a bull’s butt. No kidding.

    I’m more interested in Forrest’s new little fluffy Texan. Is he cute or what?! And it’s always entertaining to speculate about possible hints from forrest. I’m leaning towards textures: corduroy look of the down jacket is a topo hint imo, and the woolen Sherlock Homes hat is fun, JHSharp painting near Crow Agency, MT and connects to Absarokee hut, Couse-Sharp house in Taos, and perhaps the Gilcrease in Tulsa, or Cincinnati where Sharp was raised and began his studies.And just for you Lisa…frisée/freeze on e.

      (Quote)

    • Hello, Anna.

      Forrest’s new puppy a WAY cute. Perhaps Forrest is giving some sort of new and old hint in there somehow. He IS wearing that Sherlock Homes hat…like you mentioned.

      If naming the puppy was my job I’d probably call him George…not King George just George…vis-à-vis…”I want to hug him…and squeeze him…and call him George”. Puppies are really fun like that.

      And Forrest’s coat looks really, really warm. I see a few other things in that picture that might be hints of some kind…but my imagination has a mind of its own sometimes.

  5. Been poking around other blogs today & Lug has been busting up the know it alls on dal’s blog. Funny how the know it alls want you to figure out what they think they know & want you to figure that out before you figure out the poem.

    What a bunch of crap & egotistical fart heads. They give these very slight hints into what they are thinking & want you to go down their same rabbit hole or they try to steer you away from your logical thinking, with thousands if not millions of possibilities that make little sense.

    Zap, JDA, Seeker & others.
    They tell you to ignore their posts while replying to yours so they didn’t ignore yours.
    Maybe they should ignore yours, then they wouldn’t have to reply.

    I’m not saying to lay your whole solve out anywhere as Lisa & Bob & others. If you feel paranoid & think you have solved the poem, then don’t belittle us with your thinking & posting, trying to get us to know what your thinking when we have bigger fish to fry like trying to figure out F’s poem.

    I was kicked off dal’s site for “fighting” with others & got a couple nasty emails from him even thou it’s not listed in the rules & debating & fight are the same.

    “Rule #3 dal’s blog: Show respect. No name calling or swearing. Children are looking for the treasure and use this blog too.”

    Dal called me a “JERK” on his on blog & broke his own rules even though I was only calling him out without being harsh.

    Seeker has called me and others an “IDIOT” multiple times.

    JDA said I was attacking him on the blog but all I was doing was posting quotes from F to dispute his thoughts & he emailed me with insulting profanity.

    I find it all amusing & know all the hypocrites.

    You won’t have to figure this out cause I don’t play games with peoples minds. I’m pretty straightforward as the poem.

    That’s right, I’m serious & let me know if there is anything left on Bobs tab.
    No Bob, I’m not going to draw the drapes in the museum to see the treasure.

    4 Thumbs up Lug including my toes for speaking your mind & the truth.

        I’m not looking to steal your treasure or find out exactly where you’re looking to stalk you down but don’t be so……..SMH

        Hey,
        I’ll just tell you what country I’m looking for the treasure in 🙂

      • Hi Jake – By my calculations you’ve been in the right state. And you have been one of the many Forrest said have been within 500′. How’s that for narrowing it down? Wink, wink.

          (Quote)

        • HMA,
          I’m glad your in the right area with the “A” team.
          You’re more than halfway to the treasure.

          When F made the 1st 500′ comment, I was in Reno & was nowhere near any of the 4 states.
          I didn’t start looking until July 2015 & I think that statement was before then.

          My 1st trip then was to Cody & no longer think the treasure is there.

          I won’t be heading back to the Gallatin until Sept 2018 & will give you 50$ to video an area for me if you go sooner than I.

          BTW, I read some of your comments on dul’s site & you seem very calm & confident & like the way you swagger around the chumps.

          I think you may have something really good this time & the area is where the chest is, please don’t change that & you may be a champ.

            (Quote)

          • Hi Jake – Forrest made a comment at The Lure screening earlier this year where he said that a lot of people have been within 500′ of the chest. I know some of the places you have traveled and based on that and where I see the special spot, you have been within 500′ feet.

            This spot would never stand out unless someone followed the clues precisely. The poem tells me that this is the spot, the books do, the SB’s do, and other writings from Jenny’s site. Forrest really has provided the answers in his writings. I have actually used this spot to search nearby but never bothered to go the specific place that was most obvious. It may sound odd but he picked this spot for the very reason he told us.

            Thanks for the vote of confidence. I actually do feel calm and am just waiting for good news. Snow can make it a bit more challenging but the spot is so precise it can’t be missed if it’s there.

    • hey Jake! did you know I was Hunch on Dal’s bog? sure was a lot of fun back then. I remember one time i called you a rookie when i called out Forrest to slap leather. lol

      • I vaguely remember Hunch on dals blog.
        Never knew u are one in the same.

        Squeaker loved using your name to describe how everyone doesn’t know what they’re doing.

        I still rely on hunches now & then & the hunch is right most of time by far.

        I have a hunch F has a civil lawsuit on his hands & that’s why he doesn’t say much anymore on the blogs.
        His lawyer probably told him to tighten his lips until it’s over.

        Call it an educated guess or a hunch or whatever.
        I have a hunch that one of the clues in the poem is only known by him & possibly another that’s dead.

        I also believe this clue to be HOB.

        Slap that leather.

    • I got kicked off Dals site for not saying (so he says) “In My Opinion” If I posted my solve who’s opinion was it, the Dalai Lamas? Dal and Goofy appear to get great satisfaction over banning (or as they say “nuking”) people from their website. This is probably to free up space on the site so that Dal can continue to submit his personal “aren’t I wonderful” “adventurer” postings which increasingly imitate the ones posted by his puppeteer, Fenn. The comments that Dal and Goofy make are often of a rude, condescending nature. They make the perfect couple.

      • hey Tom! yeah im like 90% banned from Dal’s too. im Dodo bird but only one in ten of my comments gets posted. the comments dont even go to moderation i think they go to a spam folder and then dal reviews them to see which ones will feed the Fenn faithful, then they show up a day later. and sometimes i notice an entire thread will get archived right after he posts my comment. and none of my comments appear in the “recent comment” section on the right margin. they want me to play their way. its really weird. so ive adjusted my comments to fit an unknown criteria. hats off to me. and in thinking the truth will someday come out, keeps me sane.

        • Jake- i believe Dal is just doing his job. and that is to keep the community of the Fenn faithful entertained. Cynthia is the poster child. when she and her dog go boots on the ground searching this is exactly as Forrest intended. if Cynthia was searching with children it would be even better. but families with children are on a limited budget so they (Forrest & Dal) take what they can get. right now, it’s Cynthia. notice it used to be Stephanie…and then diggin gypsy…and Renelle? who will be next?

          nooooo! not Lisa!

          • bob and Jake – As you know, I have been booted here at Mike’s for venting my frustrations about attacking searcher at Dal’s, where I allowed myself to be booted TWICE because of her. Then Goofy booted her, for really long time. She just got back on, but is keeping her distance. I think she must have promised to do so to get back on.

            She also posted on Forrest’s blog, and probably emailed him as well, and then many posts were deleted on two threads there. I I was enjoying exchanging ideas with many great people over there. And I haven’t begged to get back on. But I still send Forrest birthday cards or emails every year.

            And this person lives 10 miles away from me and used to be my friend. Jealousy is a terrible, terrible thing. And so is Greed for GOLD.

Being brave and in the wood was my natural response to being able to sell that diamond. I gave half the money away to someone who had helped me over the past few years tremendously. The rest I need to keep to survive. There was a big diamond in that Titanic movie also… but Rose didn’t sell it.

      But when Shiloh at the book signing on November 2nd said something about the basement at the Museum, I regretted my actions. Sorry, bob.

  8. bob: the chest of the poem and the bronze box are two different things

    IMO

    But is the chest of the book and the chest of the poem two separate things? Because the chest of the book contains the bracelet- “I held the 2,000-year-old piece of jewelry one last time and could almost feel its ancient power, its supremacy, before I finally lowered it into the chest and closed the lid.”- TTOTC, page 130.

      (Quote)

      • So then, to be clear, the chest of the book is the same as the bronze box, which does hold the necklace, but that is still not the treasure, because the treasure is the big outdoors, and the chest of the poem is at the Draper museum?

          (Quote)

        • mike, getting closer!
          this should help…from Dals blog homepage the paragraph “more caution”
          “….In fact, I (Dal) did not pay close enough attention to the precision of his words. He specializes in letting you believe something he never said. (I told you he is clever).”
          end quote from dals blog.

          what im saying is forrest never states in TTOTC that following the poem precisely will lead to the bronze box.

            (Quote)

          • heres an example of precision of words..from the chapter Gold and More.

            “so I wrote a poem…”

            he says “a” poem. why didnt he say THIS poem?

            he should have written…”so I wrote THIS poem …..”

            but his words are “so I wrote A poem…”

            naturally we assume the poem that follows is the poem he was talking about but heres the problem. the poem in Gold and More will lead to the end of his rainbow and the treasure. wait a minuite!! this is the first time I ever heard of end of rainbow…I thought he was talking about the bronze box! maybe he is not. maybe this poem in Gold and More is the wrong poem for finding the bronze box. maybe there should have been a paragraph break between ….”so I wrote a poem…” and the poem we see in the chapter with an explanation as just what this poem will lead to. there is a whole lot of assumtion going on here. in fact THIS poem leads to a chest. you can assume this chest and the bronze box are one in the same, because thats what forrest wants you to do. but i dont.

    If you are looking for that chest, which you found, and you are not looking for the treasure that the rest of us are looking for, why are you engaging me in this discussion?

    I am looking for the treasure that Fenn describes in his book.

    My post, my stars, my searches and all of this are about just that one thing, the treasure.

    To be definitive for you in your language. I am not looking for the chest that you are referring to.

    Ok?

    so- long lugnutz! i am quite certain you will find that treasure of which you speak…and not even know it.

    • lugnutz- i thought about the reason im engaging in this discussion over the weekend and realized i got caught up in the whole chest/treasure/treasure chest/bronze box/indulgence/whatever you want to call it discussion and forgot that my goal in discussing with you was to hopefully prevent you or anyone else from drowning in the Rio Grande gorge. since you posted your map with stars I went into panic mode trying to dissuade a search in that area. i should have stated my intended goal from the beginning and i apologize to you for not doing that. im not even sure any of your stars are near the river. again, im sorry. my thoughts do not belong on this thread.

  11. Bob –

    Both myself and Mike seem to be confused about your assertions. So it is not just a case of me being new to Mike’s blog.

    Can you please explain the several different items you are referring to in one cohesive comment right here?

    You wrote that when Forrest writes “chest” in the poem that is not a reference to the bronze box that is pictured on Dal’s site, into which FF place his treasures. You also say that when Fenn speaks of the “treasure chest” in the New Mexico tourism video he is not referring to the “chest”. Is he referring to the “bronze box”. Is he referring to a 3rd item.

    Fascinating (I mean that the way Spock means it.)

    • lug-
      treasure chest as in new mexico tourism ad…means the great outdoors. i mean really? a tourism ad, what else can it be?

      poem chest…”just take (a photo) the chest (large wooden box) and go in peace.”
      by definition a chest is a large wooden storage box which is exactly what you will find at the museum.

      lugnutz check the dictionary definition of chest and treasure chest. a 10 inch square by 5 inch high box does not fit the definition of either. in fact i believe this is why Forrest published the exact dimensions. the bronze box is barely bigger than a cigar box. he never said the poem will lead to the bronze box. rather…”lead to the end of my rainbow and the treasure.”
      and the word treasure can mean many, many things. look it up.

      • Bob –

        Then what are you looking for?
        What does the poem and the book and the years of searching lead you to?

        Is there a treasure as described by Fenn in his book?
        Does the poem tell you how to find the treasure?
        Are you looking for the treasure?
        That’s what the rest of us our doing.

          • Bob –

            If you are looking for that chest, which you found, and you are not looking for the treasure that the rest of us are looking for, why are you engaging me in this discussion?

            I am looking for the treasure that Fenn describes in his book.

            My post, my stars, my searches and all of this are about just that one thing, the treasure.

            To be definitive for you in your language. I am not looking for the chest that you are referring to.

            Ok?

    thank you Woody for pointing that out. i have been wanting to discuss inside the dust jacket for a long time.

    inside the dust jacket is a book review written by someone other than Forrest. itblends well with inside the dust jacket on the back cover.part of the ruse.

  13. Here are some notes about the New Mexico solves.

    Chama River is of interest for a couple of reasons. Chama means flame so that could be Blaze. Below the El Vado Res dam there are Brown Trout. Also El Vado means The Ford and Skippy’s car and a teacher were Fords.

    Rancho de Oso Pardo means Home of the Brown Bear. I would not go on private property ever. The ranch does border some interesting areas including Off Reservation Land and an important railway etc etc, rabbit hole nearing…

    Bunch of Hot Springs including Ponce De Leon. PDL Hot Springs are today owned by Taos Publo. Taos Pueblo acquired that land with an anonymous benefactor for 500k. That benefactor specified that the land shall remain open to the public in perpetuity.

    Ok I will stop for now

        If it’s not in the wilderness where is it?
        Soup pot at the Totem Cafe?
        Waste tank in Glacier National Park?
        Shiloh’s trunk??

        I am afraid I am unaware of where you think it resides.

        • lug- you are new to Mikes. and this aint Dal’s .
          ok here ya go…the “chest” of the poem is not the bronze box. the chest of the poem is in an archaeology display at the Draper Museum of Natural History in Cody, WY. all of that i have explained here at mikes blog. just research the threads- poem stanzas, and each line of the poem. thats why they are separate here at mikes. its all here for you to read. go to the header and pick one. you will be amazed at what you will find. i suggest to start with poem 4:4.

          • Ok Bob –

            I am now famial with your idea.

            I don’t have to agree that the chest in the poem is on display at the Draper Museum do I?

          • In the book he put the bracelet in the chest. So the chest at the Draper must have that bracelet in it, right?

          • lol ….no Mike. the bracelet is not in the chest at the draper. the bracelet is in the bronze box just like FF said.

            the chest of the poem and the bronze box are two different things

            IMO

          • on Dals blog, home page, scroll down to the “more caution” paragraph and read what Dal says about Forrest manner of speech and then ask yourself this…If Dal is himself a searcher like the rest of us why is he saying to be cautious of the words Forrest chooses?

        • Bob –

          Back on the Stanza 4 page you made an assertion and it was countered by Seeker. You claim Forrest never mentions the Chest outside of the poem, but he does. Specifically he says “treasure chest” in the New Mexico tourism video.

          So inthe video is he referring to the “chest’ that you say is in the big museum. Or is he referring to what you call the “bronze box” accept that he calls it “treasure chest”?

          What I like here is that you have said something original and fun. (and possibly crazy)

          Also – Hi Mike!

          • Good thinkin’, Bob.

            Furthermore…the chest is not under water…but it IS too far to walk.

            Occam’s razor conclusion: It’s up in a tree…or in a cliff wall. :/

            Btw, ruse is my favorite color of blush. It compliments the color of my cheeks perfectly to match my ruby hiking boots.

            Note to self: No more sliding down steep, icy hills on cheeks.

          • We have so many quotes about the chest form Fenn I could choke a horse.

            How about from the dust jacket of TFTW quoting Fenn as he himself placed it:

            “…..study the clues in the book and thread a tract through the wiles of nature and circumstance to the treasure. If you can find it, you can have it. I warned the path would not be direct for those who had no certainty of the location beforehand, but sure for the one who did.” (Flap on map in Too Far to Walk)

          • In a word, Lugnutz…Yes.

            I feel like a caliph. You should see my shining dust jacket wrapped around Too Far To Walk.

            It’s Beautiful. I can see why Forrest said he felt (feels?) like an Architect.
