    WoodyBogg – OK. Now this is getting a little spooky. A friend from Washington posted this on Facebook just this morning. Note: the picture of the Polebridge Mercantile. Prior to reading this post and going to this person’s site, I had no prior knowledge of that area. Now I do. I am following Vagabond Veteran on Facebook now, so I can follow along on his journey on the Pacific Northwest Trail.

    And your story about going to Polebridge and what you did in that area was really great!!!

    lisa -Nice – Your friend veteran veggabond will pass over the bridge just southwest of Rexford across the Koocanusa reseavoir to get into the Yakk . There is a hutterite colony about 6 miles west . The hutterites have dinner about 5pm in the evening and you can go there and pay a small fee and eat with them. Those people are great company and will treat you right. The meals they prepare are some the best food a person could ask for. You might contact your friend and tell him. I have also hunted and fished all around the Koocanusa and the Yakk. There’s lots of deer , elk, and moose and wildlife including bears both grizzles and blacks!

    WoodyBogg – I noticed the first link to the first image that Shredder used in the birthday card to Forest is no longer available, but this one will do. It’s his cover shot on Doug’s book:

    images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51%2B9d2rqJoL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

    Lisa – ” Nice” I’m beginning to like you a lot! To bad you would never go on a search with anyone except Douglas Chadwick. Besides I would take you – Not you take me! OH yea you said you didn’t want any gold. You already have the gold!!! Good luck! Shredder is cool.

    • WoodyBogg – I am beginning to like you a lot, too. And I would love to come visit you and Douglas Chadwick at Flathead Lake anytime you say. I have only been as far Northnorth as Big Sky, Montana. And they say when hiking with the grizzlies there is safety in numbers, so how about if you, me and Douglas Chadwick and Bart the Bear II all go on The Chase together to my spot? And do you have a Savage 300 rifle? Just kidding…we would just use bear spray. I would feel safe with you, Doug and Bart the Bear II. Let me know when you’re available and I will email Doug. And then he will contact Bart’s trainer, since Doug is a founding member of Vital Ground, Bart’s organization. Okay, now I am really getting excited…

      • Lisa- Have a talk with them first and see what they have in mind. I have some projects like a house in progress but I will take time to go do some fun stuff. I want to put the boat on the lake and take a day trip from here to Polson and back visiting wild horse Island. I haven’t been there in a couple of years now. I also have a picture I would like to show you but will not send it over the net. You have fun and stay safe! Also Mike you have a beautiful Daughter and such a wonderful picture. I bet you are one proud father!!!

          (Quote)

        • WoodyBogg – I have always wanted to go to Wild Horse Island…that sounds lovely. And I would love to see whatever picture you would like to show me. I will check with Doug when I finish the Wolverine book I am reading. After hearing about his deep Winter treks in East Glacier to check on the Wolverine traps, I am sure going out to my spot would be a cakewalk for him. We’ll just see what the Universe has in store…

        • WoodyBogg – Upon doing a Google search on Douglas Chadwick just now, I think I know what he is doing most of the rest of this Summer and Fall:

          www.nationalgeographicexpeditions.com/experts/doug-chadwick/detail

          www.nationalgeographicexpeditions.com/expeditions/glacier-national-park-tour/detail

          Too bad they are sold out, but I wouldn’t have $4,600 to join in anyway. 🙂

          No…wait! I just looked further, and Doug is only joining the expeditions to Glacier on the following dates:

          Sep 04 – 10, 2017
          Aug 13 – 19, 2018
          Sep 08 – 14, 2018

          • I have spent time in and around Glacier National Park and probably have met Doug. Just this spring I was up the Northfork at a Place they call Polebridge, There is a cafe and store there The guy who owns it his name is Will. I just put the stone around the showers and restrooms where his cabin rentals are. The pasteries are famous and delicious. When you turn east at Polebridge there is a sign that reads The Road Less Traveled. There is a northern Entrance to the park there. When I was getting ready to do the stonework Will drove me to the entrance and asked me if I could duplicate the rockwork . My answer was I can do better than that!! Will gave me permission to metal detect the cabin site . There used to be n ice house there and they would cut the ice in the winter on the pond in back and bring it in on the horse and wagon teams to pack in the icehouse in sawdust to keep it through the summer. I have spent lots of time there and have worked on several projects near the Canadian border

    • Mike ThanK you . OH YES!! It was fun back then and I missed you and this site when you shut er down. I have learned so much since then and have so much more knowledge . Most of it I have kept to myself. That was four years ago ! Wow how time flies by. You should see my collection of finds now . Silvers and gold nuggets, Diamond rings and antique gold necklaces with raw sapphires. My collection has grown considerably. Those were good ol days!!

    Chris Yates – I agree, especially because Dal added the grizzly bear swimming in Stella Lake to the scrapbook post. I happen to have my very own grizzly bear guarding the treasure in my search area.

    A grizzly bear??

      (Quote)

    • WoodyBogg – His name is, affectionately, My Grizz,, and he lives out Cabin Creek trail near the Campfire Lodge just below Habgen Dam near West Yellowstone.. If you look up a story about a letter Forrest received from a woman named, La Lee and her husband, Jake, and their three dogs on Forrest’s Scrapbooks at Dal’s, you will be able to get a clear description, a close-up one, of that Grizzly boar. I kid you no,t and people don’t understand why I haven’t been out to my search area..

        (Quote)

      • WoodyBogg – I tried to provide the link for you to that Forrest’s Scrapbook over at Dal’s, but it was marked as “Spam”. That’s funny. It is #134 if you want to go find it there yourself.

        • Lisa I live in Montana above the north end of flathead lake near somers MT. I see grizzlybears quite often and have hunted where there are lots of them . They have never bothered me,

  5. 49 dollers: Wolf,
    Thanks for the compliment, though I doubt I’ve figured out any more than the next. Yes we both believe it will take logic and imagination to find the clues and the correct solve will include both. And as far as rabbit holes go some people think Alice went down one,but wasn’t it really just her imagination?Maybe someday we’ll meet in Boulder and have a Ellie’s Brown ale or maybe a stout

    Wolf, I set you up to answer that you might have “The bold Lager at” Boulder instead 🙂 ….. Lagerta the Bold……:) Cheers.

  6. Lisa, I took a peek at your website and those photos are spectacular. You must be a pro! Good to see you hiking and your shadow pics are coming along. Still not as good as mine though! lol It’s all in the time of year! (hint) Try around the first of September to get the best angles for those selfie shadows. I will show you them someday.

    I am glad you are promoting searcher safety, I have been pushing it with Fenn and the blog owners, and he seemed to be already thinking along those lines with his “safety first” hoD post. We need to spread the word to help keep everyone mindful of safety. Maybe Mike can post a safety message on this blog too.

    As far as my retirement, come a little closer, ok I am whispering now, just between you and me,, I kind of came out of retirement. I happen to be driving out west for my Grandpa’s 90th birthday a year or so ago and got to conduct a search. Well it was more like a guided tour, or so I told Mr. Fenn.

    It was very productive, someday I hope to share the good news.

      (Quote)

    • The Wolf – When the 500px site I just joined a few months ago had a Shadow Contest, I laughed and tried again to see if I could improve on the shadow I posted at Dal’s quite some time ago, when I used my Motorola flip phone to capture my shadow. Weirdly, now have a Moto G phone with only 5 megapixels to use, but I do my best with that and Google Photos to process. So no, I am not a professional like Goofy is. I am just an amateur. I just have fun posting my hikes there for all to see and enjoy.. I first tried to take my shadow photo for that site up North of here underneath the Boulder Mountains in a very scenic spot, which I posted a picture of, but the water in early Spring was muddy and made the shadow photo look as such. Then I switched to the slightly clearer pond at Hulen Meadows, where you see that I took those contest photos. And I took my first official selfie at the trailhead in the parking lot on the way up to Pioneer Cabin on June 6th this year. I think I did a pretty good job. It is now my profile photo here and elsewhere.

      And I am so glad to hear that you went on another search! I don’t think anyone can actually retire from The Chase, can they? I look forward to someday hearing about that guided tour from last year, or seeing it posted here or at Dal’s.

        (Quote)

      • I think your photos are better that Goofy’s. Yes I have lots to tell about that story, I have been holding off in case I decide to write another book. I said there was one unpublished but written chapter when I wrote Finding Forrest Fenn.

        Then there was that secret object (mushroom) I found that magically disappeared, followed by Fenn’s sudden disappearance, followed by a cameo appearance with Teseque eating magic mushrooms, learning a lesson and chasing chipmunks.

        That story left a lot of people scratching their heads, except one…. Oh someday I will tell that story, maybe I will publish it in my searcher’s blog portion where only a few will read it.

        Ah the Thrill of the Chase! It is a cat and mouse game.

          (Quote)

        • The Wolf – Shall I call you Alice, and did you go to Yellowstone, which was coined as Wonderland way back when? And did you fall down a rabbit hole, while chasing Tesuque and the chipmunk? I for one would read that story, here or on your blog or on Dal’s…wherever you choose to put it. And thank you for the compliment on my photos. Again, I just do it for the enjoyment of myself and others. But someday I hope to take a selfie of me and the bronze chest, of course. Maybe documenting all my hiking is just practice, right?

            (Quote)

          • Fortunately this Wolf has a confident in his masculinity so I am ok with Alice! Since there is a reason FF quoted Alice and it just isn’t about imagination. I believe in that show there was tea, a floating hat and other interesting characters.

            I don’t think I will be posting it on Dal’s ever. As many know he is a “my way or the highway” kind of guy and I am a principle kind of guy, that mixes like oil and water. Needless to say, I didn’t bow to his demands of posting my final chapter and I asked him to remove 10 of my writing from his blog and I had him take down a thread that he illegally “borrowed” from my book without citing it. He is not much of a cancer supporter anyway, so I would rather support blogs that are more supportive of charities.

            Anyway, the story is pretty cool, and the solution if proven true, would turn the chase upside down as it bust the paradigm of thought that Mr. Fenn has so cleverly planted.

              (Quote)

          • WoodyBogg – Thank you so much for appreciating my photos! I really enjoy figuring out how to take them and process them, but if you saw some of the other people who post on that 500px site, who are professional photographers, you would see mine pale in comparison. Look up this guy, Derek Burdeny, over at 500px.com. Why he takes storm photos of tornadoes and serious thunderstorms and sunsets at the same time…great ones! Check him out.

              (Quote)

        • The Wolf – from the beginning of the Chase when I found hearts on my topo map in the landscape and a heart dead center where I believe the chest lies, I have referred to myself as the Queen of Hearts in the best sense of that word, since my namesake is Elizabeth I, who Lewis Carroll likely modeled that character after. He also used the Thames River to come up with the story of Alice, because of one of his relatives that was in a boat with him there. And I have always considered myself to be the Queen of Hearts, but in the best sense of those words.

          I’m very sorry to hear about your experience with Dal and his blog. I’ve had my struggles there as well, but you know I just keep coming back!

          And Alice Cooper was OK with the name Alice as well!

            (Quote)

          • You know Lisa, you are so very good at picking up what I lay down. You are a sharp cookie. There is no doubt, the Queen of Hearts is key to that Alice in wonderland quote. The next step is to gather the other 4 cards and make yourself a Royal Flush of hearts, oh and jokers are wild, fighter pilots are aces, Win Fenn’s heart and you have two, three to go. Find the King of Hearts and you have the unbeatable hand. The hand that guides, a hand that points and hand that is out of his hands. Just don’t break his heart.

              (Quote)

          • The Wolf – Start with the section entitled “he/she is a card ” and scroll downward to learn everything there is to know about the history of the cliches involving playing cards and all their symbolism and then we’ll talk about your proposed royal flush.

            www.businessballs.com/clichesorigins.htm

            And when you get down to the part with the charts about who the representations are for each suit of cards, we will discuss Judith as the Queen of Hearts, the biblical Judith, who cut off someone’s head that was pretty important!

    I am glad to see many good people here still active and some new faces. Awesome blog and always on focus, with a dash of Bob humour.

    49 – you have always been one of the top searchers in my mind. When FF mentions 10,000 years that subliminally points to “ten thousand more” in stout hearted men. We have two MW questions with “Bolder” recently = “bolder and bolder” in that poem as well.

    So what is it about that song, that Fenn wanted us to think about? Is “give you title” a hint to “Stout hearted men” if so what can be broken in that title?

    That is what I love so much about this poem. It is so difficult, yet the subtleties are there waiting to be discovered.

    Wolf,
    Thanks for the compliment, though I doubt I’ve figured out any more than the next. Yes we both believe it will take logic and imagination to find the clues and the correct solve will include both. And as far as rabbit holes go some people think Alice went down one, but wasn’t it really just her imagination?
    Maybe someday we’ll meet in Boulder and have a Ellie’s Brown ale or maybe a stout 🙂

  8. The Wolf:
    Hi 49, I think he placed a lot of things in TTOTC to hint at things we will see when we arrive at his special spot to confirm one followed the clues correctly. I think if one finds the “broken arrow” or arrow head it should be accompanied by a visible omega as well, which makes for nice confirmation. Likely there will be many other things that the poem mentions there as well. Maybe another special “broken” item…

    Hey Wolf good to hear from you. Yes arrows can point the way, I was looking at the words to ” stout hearted men” when I noticed… Halt and Mar a plan…. Reminded me of you, since Mar is short for March, maybe another hint at spring.

      • Hi The Wolf! – Just checking in….here is a reply I did to you earlier on the Periodic Words from Forrest Fenn thread at Jenny’s:

        Lisa Cesari July 10, 2017 at 2:00 pm
        Hi, The Wolf! I do not like absolutes either. And I also believe in accountability on The Chase. Have you taken anymore trips lately to go out searching? And is your blog page still active? What is that URL again? If you are going anywhere near West Yellowstone anytime soon, please let me know, here or on Dal’s. ?

        • Well if it isn’t my long lost TTOTC buddy! That picture is so sweet and hits me in my soft spot. I was wondering where you went. I am so E-xcited to hear from you.

          As far as my website, I shut it down in July and changed its focus to the general public who are curious about treasure hunting. The revamped website focuses on searcher safety and the psychology of Gold/Fenn Fever. The new website is the1wolf1.wixsite.com/findingfenn

          I released the 3rd edition to Finding Forrest Fenn including an updated solve verifying checklist and safety chapter. All proceeds continue to be donated to cancer research. For the searchers who still want access to over 50 of my searcher focused blog posts, I decided to repost them under restricted access. More to follow.

          • The Wolf – Yippeee! You are here and I get to go see your website now! I saw that it had ended in June or something during my search for it. Now I get to communicate with you here and on Jenny’s and over at Dal’s with my REAL self! That is so nice! I also have a Moto G phone that takes pretty good pictures that I edit in Google Photos, so if you click on my name on this post you can go to my 500px site to see what I have been doing in the hiking department. There is a pano I made using Autostitch behind my head that is really great using 9 photos I took in sequence at Redfish Lake. And I have not gotten lost yet! Well, almost…on the way to Pioneer Cabin when there was still snow on the ground and no trail on 6/6/17. Good practice for The Chase, though. I was thinking about you and your rescue helicopter that day, for sure. 🙂

            p.s. Just read your safety page and I am going to go post it right now for some girls on my Facebook page…awesome!

    • Wolf, here is one example of the perfect arrow head matching ff’s arrow point he found when he was 9 years old. And it’s a shadow occurring over an omega shape with tooth art, occurring at a specific time during the year. Wow! Now that’s a trifecta.

      caltopo.com/map.html

      Oops, couldn’t be here. ff said it’s 8.25 miles north of this location “because” he didn’t want people digging in his neighbors yard. (Reading quotes out of context is unwise)

        (Quote)

  9. I found that arrow

    The Wolf:
    Why not look at it Fennishly? No need to break anything because it is already “broken.” Now play the “broke” list, what comes up that FF talks about a lot and is related to his flying experience?
    Arrow heads and atom bombs. He “always thought the treasure chest was a bomb,” he signed out an atomic bomb. Take a look at the picture in TTOTC of Marvin Fenn sitting on the rear bumper of the car and the spare tired (done it tired) has a hydrogen bomb blast photo shopped on it.Talks of his coach and him driving home when the first atomic bomb was dropped. Omega is a symbol of the atomic bomb. oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2013/05/alpha-omega-bomb.jpg

    Anyone know what the military term for an missing atomic bomb is? “BROKEN ARROW”

    Find that missing arrow and it may just point to something special…

    I found that arrow, is that why he put the JF signed sketch in TTOTC?

      The film is replete with the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture. These action adventure feats are performed by elite athletes representing the world’s best in class in big-wave surfing, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling.

      That is just what popped in my head…

      • Hi Lisa

        ya, putting things out there i am convinced one or some are going to be important connections

        another thing The Wolf’s post brought to my mind is if it’s not broken dont fix it

        so if f says we don’t need to break anything, maybe we need to fix something

        fix could be fixed position/location. another interesting definition i found when looking up the etymology is English 1600 “fixing” …”act of putting in order”

        my view is, and i think f hints at this, is clues are to be identified with (married to ) places on the map. they have fixed locations, are to be put in order, and distances from each to each are measured and in the poem

        if you start solving it correctly imo you are gonna know. connecting also to f’s recent “far thinker” comment which ill post further thoughts on the Perry Stone link here since it was directed to him

          (Quote)

        • Chris – Too weird! I had some of my best outdoor gear repaired for free by Patagonia’s Worn Wear crew this past weekend, and their motto is: If it’s broke, fix it! Here’s the link to a post they just did on Instagram:

          www.instagram.com/p/BWXqZ5EA4Np/

          They are headed to Lander, Wyoming for the International Climbers Festival to offer their free services and trading clothing there, and promised they would post pictures on Instagram of Sinks Canyon for me, where I’ve always wanted to go. Just in case any of you are headed that way to Lander, Wyoming and want something fixed for free. It doesn’t have to be Patagonia manufactured…you can also trade in Patagonia outer layers that are no longer functional for a gift certificate for new stuff.

          But I digress. What I wanted to say was awesome thoughts again, and I totally agree with your train of thought here. And I am still thinking about what you wrote, to apply it to my solve and a few potential new ones. I really appreciate you sharing and considering here on Mike’s great blog.

            (Quote)

        • Chris Yates – Couldn’t a “far thinker” be someone who flew as an Air Force pilot and dropped bombs using a bomb site and had that viewpoint when choosing a location for where to hide his bronze chest? Doesn’t a fighter pilot or a bomber pilot have to fix a location when attacking? And didn’t Forrest happen to have a Piper plane that he used to circle the surrounding terrain with as he was landing at West Yellowstone Airport? When he said we needed a good map I think Forrest was referring to the kind you use in navigation on an airplane or maybe he meant a topo map based upon Google Earth.

            (Quote)

          • yep Lisa. hey, is f saying we need to fix the location, wouldnt that be saying we need to know it before we go

            not that he’s ever suggested that before. BOTG!!!

    JC1117 – Those are beautiful examples of His noble majesty on earth – but you are correct – we can only pour out His Love to others if we make room in our heart for Him and the people who pass through our lives. Blessings to you and your wife….be extra sweet to her:-) it matters to wives more than u.guys realize.

    Btw – love the swans…I once started a small publishing business called Swan River Publ. and remember swans on the Gibbon River as a child.

  13. Dear Mike, it’s very kind of you to activize ttotc again. Thank you. It’s a place that anyone can have fun connecting with others….

    Buckeye Bob and JC 1117 – it certainly was strange that Forrest wore his infamous hat “mildew.” Right?! Since mildew Anagrams perfectly to “wild me,” perhaps Forrest was living out his wild side by changing his mind, or simply having “fun with his fans” but not geisha style youtu.be/JsUGE3uXq44

    One thing is certain… as an author living out his autobiography, he certainly leans toward the subject matter… “ME” and “I/eye”

    Hope everyone is enjoying summer. I’m trying to recover my senses after leaving Glacier Park to return to the concrete wilderness that is my home – for now.

    Finding contentment is not as easy as it should be….

    In Redford’s movie “Jeremiah Johnson” a wise Native American proverb is quoted: “You search in vain for what you cannot find.” What an outstanding film. A huge favorite of mine.

    • Anna Bloom: Dear Mike, it’s very kind of you to activize ttotc again. Thank you.

      Anna, thank you. I did not want the information that has been shared these past 4 years to be lost forever. And although I have been busy lately, I do enjoy the community of like-minded souls who gather here. I hope you enjoy the blog, and I am happy to have you here.

    • Anna Bloom – Thank you for sharing your thoughts and that proverb from “Jeremiah Johnson”,…that is also one of my favorite movies, which I happened to see while Robert Redford was working from his office on the property of Sundance Resort in Utah. I was staying in one of the rooms there, and watched it on the Sundance Channel. Surreal for sure! 🙂

      I understand this scene is how Mr. Redford started adding a No Bear Clause to his acting contracts, because the bear cornered him while filming it:

  14. Thanks, again, for bringing back ttotc.com, Mike. I know it must take a lot of work. I wouldn’t have a clue how to do it or even know where to start.

    It’s nice to know, though, that nothing needs to be broken to find Forrest’s Treasure.

    Note to self: No more breaking laws. (slaps wrist)

    It’s funny, though, that one of the expressions for “puzzle” in Portuguese is “quebra-cabeça”…which means “break head”. LOL!

    I think I broke my head a long time ago. That…or my mom dropped me on my head…

    .. several times. On accident, of course. 🙂

    • My Pleasure, JC. I’ve had to learn how to become a blog master. Wish I had a “Goofy” like Dal to do the techy stuff. Glad to have you here!
