  1. Good morning Bob, Kedarsmom, JC1117,
    Thank you! Your thoughtful comments are appreciated.

    Bob, remaining strictly “F” troop fits line one of the poem perfectly. When all words are fit together without space between (like Skippy, Forrest, and June in one twin bed – west Yellowstone log cabin) line one reads “As I havEGO… Looking broadly for very large F’s in nature is likely step one.

    Like you bob, I believe the poem differentiates between treasures, trove, floral/legal paper/title, chest, gold. Treasures refer to people and places ff loves. One could make an argument from last three lines of the poem that ff gives title to the gold to Old Wood (David & Shiloh Old’s business) “I give you title to the gold Old Wood.

    Or. If components are individually separate within the poem, then the “title” to gold could be found in a 10 x 10 bank box which leads to the “gold”. Ff said no safety deposit boxes to be searched. Is searched different than “found”? By definition yes. No notes to be found…is different than no title to be found. Early on Forrest himself stressed the importance of understanding DEFINITIONS.

    JC1117, thanks for restating f’s no human trail in close “proximAty”. my brain goes into overdrive on this one.
    -O X is at A.
    -No such word, so could be false
    -Human “trail” by definition is different than a “road”, horse trail etc

    For all we know the romanesque lock box filled with Forrest’s golden trove sits in his home vault on old Santa Fe trail or on top of viveadh mesa waiting for someone to enter a Wells Fargo bank and claim the title.
    When ff speaks of standing where the treasure is and seeing animals, he could be referring to his treasures…great outdoors, family/friends, his horse, etc.

  2. Hello A-team,

    If anyone can help me think through the following, I would greatly appreciate your help…

    The poem has lead me to an old red barn in Bozeman, Montana which I believe is the lone remaining building of Donnie Heath’s grand parents. Perhaps it’s where Forrest and Donnie arrived after their 90 mile journey from West Yellowstone to Bozeman and it’s sentimental to Forrest. The poem definitely weaves a tale of DJH driving the “Ale Road” to Lea Avenue.
    Here’s my question… Why would the poem lead you here when it’s below 5000 ft elevation? It’s also on private property, not forrest’s.
    I’m confused as a blonde should be. Simply looking for reasoning assistance. (By the way, I’ve finished searching Montana and believe the win is in New Mexico). THANKS.

    • Hello, Anna.

      I think you’ve hit the nail on the head as far as a location that is sentimental to Forrest.

      sen·ti·men·tal
      ?sen(t)??men(t)l/Submit
      adjective
      of or prompted by feelings of tenderness, sadness, or nostalgia.

      However, I don’t see how you can safely/legally search on private property without the owner’s permission. Forrest does want us to be brave…but I’m near certain he does not want us to break the law. He did spend a bunch of money on a lawyer.

      Also, I don’t know how you can rationalize an elevation below 5000 ft. That’s one of those hard and fast rules…like the treasure is not in Utah or Idaho…or the treasure is not in a graveyard, etc.

      And now it seems I have more competition in New Mexico…and I know you’re a serious contender…which is not good for me…especially now that I know you’re also looking for something nostalgic and sentimental…

    Hi, Woody.

    I presently live in Salt Lake City.I grew up (got older?) in Pleasant Grove, Utah.

    I’ve only been toSantaFe once in my life.It’s a Beautiful Place. I can see why Forrest loves it there.

    I was just through salt lake on my way to colo. When I was a kid dad had a place in salt lake 29 10E. 39th south my aunt lived in sandy off of redwood road. @ 90 south. I worked @ the material handling equipt co on 33 st and 3rd when I was 17 . I’m 60 now I will stop and see you when I go through there.

      • JC It’s good to hear your family is doing OK! Yes getting older and the constant grind with so much to do seems it doesn’t get much better as with age! It gets tougher . You are one of the few that I enjoy responding with and would consider to meet or go on a treasure hunt with.

    Anna- in fact i have dug there for fishing worms. you see birds gather there and then their droppings make excellent soil for the worms to reproduce. i havent bough worms to go fishing with in many many years. i get em free. i then martyr the worms and pray for fish.

    Bob, I forgot to ask…in your worm digging have you uncovered any 18th century Spanish coins?

    In 1887, A Silver City citizen, Mrs. Tassie Wilson, went to the territorial capital of Santa Fe for a visit. During her stay, she and her friends discovered a plethora of Spanish coins hidden beneath the walls of old Fort Marcy. This incident, first reported by the Silver City Enterprise on September 30, claimed her find to be more than $2,300 worth of coins, the oldest of which dated back to 1740 and 1726 and were donated to the Historical Society of New Mexico. The paper went on to state: “After the discovery was made, large numbers of Santa Fe citizens turned out and dug the whole country up in the vicinity of the fort, but without finding anything new.” The chaotic hunt was ultimately the destructive force that ended the remaining standing walls. The government sold the Fort Marcy location at auction in 1891. The city of Santa Fe acquired the site on the hill in 1961, while landscaping it and establishing a scenic overlook of the city.[3]

      • Bob, Try to believe the best in ff. I’ll bet he’s wise enough to respect most people…unless you have you given him a no-siree reason for him to be done with you?

        • Anna- i dont think that its a matter of respect, im sure he respects me very much. he doesnt like me. there is a difference. im not the sort of person he expected to uncover the ruse. im not socially acceptable. im not presentable.
          those are the reasons for him to be done with me. and because of his quest for fame im actually ok with all of it.
          i think its quiet here because most of the people who comment here know im right and there is not much else to discuss.
          a long time ago i posted on this blog that my book and poem came with instructions. lol. of course i was lying.

      Before you make another departure please tell me what you mean by “it’s all three.”

      All three what?

      Notes, lyrics, tune???
      Sunlight, shadow, moon???

      Stay here and play my friend.

      • Top of the mornin to you JC1117.

        It is fun to see what’s posted here. Nothing Kryptic from me; just a timely reminder from one of Forrest’s close friends…
        In the latest book release interview Forrest’s close friend Doug Preston said, “with Forrest nothing is ever simple.”

          (Quote)

    • Your last post because someone solved the poem? Are you waiting for them to retrieve it? What is simple is an update that says, yes someone was within 25 feet or no, no one has been closer than 200 feet since 2016.

        • Woody…Huh??

          You’ll have to help us out with the yrt etc. What do you mean?

          Here, I’ll post some of my ideas…
          My take on Forrest’s latest comment in his January televised interview… Simplify may not be the key word as much as “it”. He said simplify it.

          IT numerical value equal 92, simplified one way 9+2=11
          1+1=2 2=B is likely related to treasure.
          Just my opinion, but the word it, you can take that one to the bank. UT =32 and one can begin It at ut in the poem. The poem is self evident. Hay & Vav of HOD/Hebrew alphabet are important; and A is where it’s at – right? We are the A-team!

  6. Lisa Cesari:
    bob – Thank you so much for your insights about feet. I am thinking.about that now….

    So what did Forrest say about being within 12 feet to see the bronze chest again? Are there by any chance 12 pairs of feet total in those two pictures with the Fs in them?

    SB78

    “I have not said that a searcher was closer than 12’ from the treasure. It is not likely that anyone would get that close and not find it.”

    Feet feet feet:-) mine are tired. I’m taking a jour de fete – a day of rest.

    Enjoy the weekend Everyone.

    Bob,
    I see what you think is an F below the tail knot.
    Letters in the alphabet are
    s e p a r a t e d.
    Your F there is not.

    Also the lower horizontal line in the so called F is a dot, not a line & the top left of the F is connected to the tail.

    In all the pics I see almost all the letters in the alphabet & many numbers as well.

    The F on the back of the student is also connected to the bow & there is a tiny space between the horizontal lines where the vertical is supposed to connect.

    Get a magnifying glass & you will see what I do.

    Good luck crawling down this rabbit hole.

    Jacob- well all i can do is present the material. you tried to understand but your brain just doesnt get it. heres good news Jacob, there is a fabulously simple solution…just give up.
    now im going to assume that you dont see this short and easy solution as a fit for your character disposition. I guess I will have to go on with a longer elaboration for your dilemma.
    Now, a common misconception is that your brain works like a hard drive. Here data, there hard disc, file transfer–and voila youre set! just not so.
    Jacob, new input is like sand in your hands. your brain just lets it trickle through. and lost it is, but not forever.
    Walk with me Jacob, while i explain…not far just around the building. come.
    There is a whole school of thought on walking and thinking called Peripatetic School. It originated with Aristotle. not only the greek liked walking and thinking, Rousseau liked it too.
    “I can only meditate when i’m walking. When I stop, my mind ceases to think; my mind only works with my legs.”–Jean Jaques Rousseau
    As we walk Jacob, solutions will come flying towards you. you need only to catch them. see the ground moving under your feet? you are gaining Jacob.
    Ironically, feet are the path to learning. feet are the blaze Jacob.
    now lets get back to class.

    • bob – “Off with her head!”

      Didn’t.the Red Queen say that? That post directed to Jake was quite the rabbit hole, was it not? More like Chess than Checkers.

      And as to Rousseau, here is another famous quote mis-attributed to another famous Queen:

      “Let them eat cake” ?

      While the phrase is commonly attributed to Queen Marie Antoinette, there is no record of her having said it. It appears in book six of Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Confessions, his autobiography (whose first six books were written in 1765, when Marie Antoinette was nine years of age, and published in 1782).

      She loved Rousseau, at least according to Sofia Coppola’s movie, Marie Antoinette.

      “The route was very rocky and my horses feet (he not being shod) were worn nearly to the quick which caused him to limp very much.”
      Journal of a trapper.

      How could 2 feet be a single object?

      Yes there are many references by F about walk, walking, walked & the one that finds the treasure will be the one who walked to it.

    yes Lisa, placement of the capital F’s. they are placed low in the drawings to direct your attention to the many feet in each drawing.
    Bessie and Me….the cows feet, young Forrest bare feet, the cats feet, the FOOTstool. and mention of wet socks.
    Teachers with Ropes….the teacher and childrens feet.

    according to scrapbook 23 a capital F on a tree is a blaze. so we find the capital F’s and then- look quickly down, to see feet. feet are the blaze.

    many of the photographs in TTOTC have photoshopped feet.
    this is how i analyze that great info.

    NO- Feet are not the blaze!!

  9. Lisa Cesari:
    bob – Now that we have that great info, has anybody analyzed what the placement of those capital Fs mean?

    Tied to a tail = tied to a tale?

    Below a girl’s bow = below an Oxbow in the river or creek?

    Anyone????

    Both Bessie the cow and teachers with ropes are @ the same location. I have pictures of both of them Forrest’s two FF’S are @ that same location and they are side by side!!

    Bart, it is a bunch of crap.Forrest Faux wants you or another dupe to go get wet in Folsom Falls.He thinks there is some hidden cave behind the falls or some other goofy thing he’s seen in a movie.He doesn’t want to spend the time and money to look for himself.

    Mitch,
    In my opinion, I don’t think there is a cave under the falls and I think that has already been stated as something not to look for?
    I think all of this is a starting point and not the end. It feels like this is where the puzzle starts and that the poem was wrote about this place?
    Direction is difficult and I don’t understand which way to go, but I believe that the eye, which is round, is the blaze and 100% coincides with what Forrest has said about what direction the blaze faces.
    You may be right Mitch this whole thing is a bunch of crap, but there is just something about what he has said that makes me want to at least take a look at this. As far as the area being dull and boaring, this horse head is far from boaring. I’ve never seen anything like it on a map. What a kool place. I’m sure it doesn’t look like much on the ground, but for a flyboy, this is the holy grail of flyovers if you ask me.

    • Jacob, sleeping is not allowed during class. you being here shows a desire to learn but your actions say otherwise Jacob. now have you found the two capital F’s in your book Jacob?

        • Jake- In TTOTC…. the first capital F is hidden in the chapter “Bessie and Me” look where the cows tail is tied to the footstool, just below the knot.
          The second capital F is in the chapter “Teachers with Ropes” look at the girl holding the rope just ahead of the teacher. Just below the bow on the back of her dress.

          do you see them now? they are the only two in the entire book.

          • Lisa- im at work now, no book with me to count feet…but remember the FF comment about links north of santa fe?
            interestingly a link is about 8 inches long. this is as close to a foot as you can come without actually saying “foot”.
            in terms of measurement anyway.

          • bob – Excellent! Walk a mile in my shoes and….

            If 66,000 links = 8.25 miles, then how many links is one mile?

            Someone pointed out at Dal’s that the difference between 5,000ft. and 10,200ft, which are the altitude boundaries for where the bronze chest is located, is about 1 mile = 5,280ft.

            Hmmmmmmm…..

              (Quote)

          • bob – Is this right?

            66,000 links ÷ 8.25 miles = 8,000 links per mile.

            8,000 links × 8 inches = 64,000 inches

            64,000 inches ÷ 12 = 5,333.33 feet

            Walk a mile in my shoes….didn’t Forrest say he had a men’s Size 9 shoe in that Scrapbook with Tesuque in the closet???

            Thank you Mister Shakespeare, but we didn’t ask for your opinion, and we’re not ready yet to retire. We’ll let you know when. Hope you’re taking notes.

            Yeah, and everyone over at Dal’s keeps ignoring my references to Shakespeare’s Epitaph and Forrest maybe using that to write his original Poem…

          • bob – Men’s size 9 foot = 10.25 inches. Does that help?

    I thought they had dynamited that area when they built the new road. I didn’t think they would have moved the road. Glad they did.

    How did you find this?

    Not sure how I initially found it. That was quite awhile ago. But, I found this in my files when I saw your question :
    www.nps.gov/mwac/publications/pdf/spec4.pdf

    I’m thinking those maps may have been what helped me to pinpoint it.

    Question:
    If I have a coordinate from GE and let’s say I want to go 118 miles north, how can I figure exactly what coordinate are at the end.

    So it would be a conversion of min and sec to miles?

    One degree of latitude equals approximately 69 miles. So, you would have about 1.7° added to your starting coordinate.
    Or, you could measure 118 miles by clicking on the ruler icon in the GE toolbar (5th icon from the right), to get precise coordinates. Coordinates are shown in the bottom right of your screen. Be sure to set your option to miles.

    Hello Jake,

    Mummy Joe Cave is here : 44° 27′ 39.18″ N / 109° 44′ 12.47″ W

    Scrapbook 92 is a vintage photo taken when the highway followed the bend in the river. The two bridges seen on GE have been constructed since that photo was taken.

    If you go to street view and stand on the bridges, you can vaguely see the cave in the shadows.

          This “Forrest Fenn” is just another poster and that is that. He (she) is just inputting their thoughts and you can try to understand them or not.
          I for one could care less what they post because it does not relate to my solve of clues. So Lisa, don’t let them get under your skin. Into- I just don’t see them being the real Forrest but who knows unless the real Forrest video’s that this is not him.

          Not sure I can keep up with the conversations here because most seem to search other states. Into, I think your still keeping Colorado in mind too, right.

          No one I see has posted the reasons why the Denver Museum of Nature and Science that relates to why Forrest (a hint that Doug said) chose this place to park his car, on any blog. A lot of guesses but not the ones that matter. If they know they might not be saying and that just might be a good thing. A deep thinker would understand this reason, and how it would “help aid” in solving more then one clue in the poem, ok let’s make that eight clues if you have the TTOTC book hints too, if one is needing hints for direction.

          All poem clue solves are straightforward, but the “museum statement” can help lead the way if needed. For me this statement was just conformation on my solve.

          Well a long winter ahead and time to think, do I really have the clues to the poem solved correctly? or did I just somehow make everything fit by guessing or using false hints to guide me?

          All that is needed is the poem and a “really” good map. …… maybe understanding the TTOTC book and a some of Forrest thoughts in it might help.
          Good luck all,
          Bur

        • Into – I hope that doesn’t mean you are still playing into this delusion. Remember, I was the one duped at Dal’s, because I didn’t recognize the exact same phrases used here by Not Forrest Fenn. I have provided the proof, and if you or anyone else here is still not convinced, you need to look at that carefully. Why do YOU need it to be Forrest????

          p.s. By the way, why would the REAL Forrest be posting maps of his actual blazes and solutions here. Does that make sense to you?

      • WoodyBogg – Bingo. And since Not Forrest Fenn is on the East Coast, posting at about 4:28pm in the afternoon, and he/she is inebriated already, then a trip to the Lounge right about now could be detrimental. I also just want to enjoy my beer over there…

        Are you getting my ‘drift’ NOW, Not Forrest Fenn????

        After you get out of the Betty Ford rehab, maybe you will embrace your real identity and actually post here under your real name. You could start with:

        Hi. My name is Not Forrest Fenn. And I’ve been on The Chase, pretending to be the much admired person, who hid the bronze chest, for several months. Badly. But now I have the courage to admit that, and have come back to tell all of you. And I want to.join the A-TEAM!

        Really, Not Forrest Fenn, we’re all just trying to help.

    • Jake – That photo looks so different than the one in Forrest Scrapbook over at Dal’s:

      dalneitzel.com/2014/08/24/mummy_cave/

      The directions to Mummy Joe Cave are in the first paragraph. The light across the mountain in your picture is probably being generated by the ancient and elusive Little People, who have been reported by various tribes to be in area caves around those parts.

        (Quote)

    • jake that light on the side of the mountain is an electric arc between two poles. those poles are used to jump start the mountain if the battery goes dead. obviously that mountain needs serious attention. there must be a short circuit somewhere down the line to cause that arc. i hope nobody gets electrocuted.

    Janet – Here’s Not Forrest Fenn’s post here on Mike’s blog:

    Forrest Fenn on November 19, 2017 at 9:06 am said:

    32° is cold.

    It’s also an extension of the township number/line that must be equally divided. This is also my blaze line that passes through the actual blaze. Two meanings both being equal at the same time.

    Your effort will be worth the cold.

    This is SB32.

    Lisa, you’re not even close.
    ———-

    Please note the last sentence, Janet. It is exactly the same sentence that Not Forrest Fenn used when he posted a reply to ME over at Dal’s blog on SB 185. Goofy deleted it, because that was NOT Forrest Fenn. That poster was identified as being an imposter. Duh.

    Lisa if you don’t believe there is anything here, then why care at all? You seem like the kind of person who knows Forrest very well and wants to seek him out on every level. Maybe this isn’t for you. Maybe he was talking directly to me. He said your not even close, I would say that maybe you should try a different angle. Maybe it was Forrest being brutally honest. Maybe this is where Forrest wants to post and help the real searchers.
    Just because Goofy is an IT guru doesn’t mean that he isn’t trying to end this thing. I’m not going to rule out anything but you can if you would like. Just ignore Scrapbook 32 and chase something else. Duh.

      (Quote)

    • Janet – Unbelievable. Really. You can’t see the Forrest through the trees. So how do you intend to find the bronze chest?

      Whatever Not Forrest Fenn said, about my proximity to the bronze chest, is a moot point to be ignored. Everyone here on the A Team on this blog knows that, but you just keep repeating and repeating the same illogical and somewhat deranged conclusions. This is the last time I’m going to answer your post, and I’m sure none of the regulars here will entertain your notions either. So hanging out here with Not Forrest Fenn in what you think is HIS non-important-because-it-never-existed Scrapbook 32 thread….the one Dal just decided not to give a number to…is going to get really, really lonely for you. Enjoy.

        (Quote)

      • Lisa, If there’s one thing I have learned about TC and F, is what’s NOT said is the most important.
        In my opinion, I think this unspoken SB32 has been the most important discovery to date. I think it should be deleted before someone who is smarter than me figures it out, and here’s why I say this:

        APRIL 2014
        Some searchers overrate the complexity of the search. Knowing about head pressures, foot pounds, acre feet, bible verses, Latin, cubic inches, icons, fonts, charts, graphs, formulas, curved lines, magnetic variation, codes, depth meters, riddles, drones or ciphers, will not assist anyone to the treasure location, although those things have been offered as positive solutions. Excellent research materials are TTOTC, Google Earth, and/or a good map.f

        I think “a good map” is SB32?
        No codes, no charts etc.

        Now let’s assume what HASEN’T been mentioned.

        NOT “curved lines” so ONLY straight lines and straight lines that are DRAWN on “a good map”

        NOT “Latin” but let’s go to the mother of all keystones, The Rosetta Stone. Egyptian and GREEK. I haven’t seen any Egyptian so I’m having the Gyro. Something on the “good map” that translates Greek.

        NOT “magnetic variations” but straight up, no nonsense point to point straight line connections drawn on “a good map”

        It’s all the stuff that’s NOT said that’s the most important.

        So, Dal shooting his mouth off about SB32 is F saying, that it’s the most important, by F saying nothing about the missing SB.

        Remember, F just released a whole book on Scrapbooks. Don’t tell me for a second, SB32 is unimportant because Dal says so. Scrapbooks are deliberate, and F’s baby. He knows exactly what he’s printing, saying, mentioning, hinting, slipping,and especially what he’s not saying or SKIPPING.

          (Quote)

          • What if Dal found the Bronze Box a long time ago, and for the sake of keeping TC going, they are conspiring to keep TC alive to write books, make maps…

            WHY would Dal say such things about SB32 and F say nothing?

            Now all of this here magically appearing with F making an appearance?
            Is this real? Is this F trying to end it all? Or stear someone, everyone to “a good map”?
            Lots of questions here, and still don’t understand the cryptic postings, but they are all related in some way. The number “32”s seem to match.

              (Quote)

          • Greg Mason – Forrest Fenn did not magically appear here. This imposter has tried to post at Dal’s in the distant past, here at Mike’s a little over a month ago for the first time, and then again just recently on this SB32 thread. That is his/her gig. To pretend to be Forrest so searchers will pay attention. Period.

            That’s why I said it would be nice if this imposter would join us in their real identity. My guess is they would be ignored, because whoever is doing this, is providing no back-up to their statements.

              (Quote)

          • Greg Mason – I liked your ideas about opposite aspects to those Forrest said we don’t need to know about. Here are my suggestions for your Greek and Straight ideas:

            Golden Triangle
            Golden Gnomon = Sundial
            Golden Ratio = Phi = f
            Double Omega
            Hephaestus & Pandora
            Hercules & Circe
            Echo & Narcissus
            Icarus & Daedalus
            (BIG ‘clew’ here!)

            Greek Heroes & Greek Gyros????

        • Greg Mason –

          I interpreted Dal’s statement about giving a number to Scrapbook 32, or, actually, his choosing NOT to assign number 32, meant that all of the Scrapbooks Forrest creates are given numbers by Dal,…what about that? So Forrest sends him a Scrapbook, and Dal looks to see which number he’s on, and then Dal gives it a number at the top of the page, and posts it for all of us to read.

    Maybe Not Forrest Fenn will go play somewhere else, now that Scrapbook 32 is a moot point. Its disappearance had nothing to do with Forrest, apparently.

    There is something here. I believe this is F.

    There is way more here than what meets the eye.

    I just can’t put it all together. Is anyone trying to figure this out?

    I know where the numbers come from, I just can’t find them. I think that this is the “good map” that F has said is need. This was from one of his very first post? Am I right that just the poem, GE and or “a good map” are need to find the treasure? Am I wrong on this?

      (Quote)

    • Greg Mason – Goofy came over here to Mike’s to verify that this poster is, in fact, NOT Forrest Fenn posting here, because I posted a link to one of Not Forrest Fenn’s posts at Dal’s. The IP address was somewhere on the East Coast. I would certainly appreciate it if everyone quits giving this clear imposter anymore energy. Although I feel it would be fun if they would identify themselves as who they really are and keep posting here. Then we will see if they have anything to offer…

          Why would Goofy and Dal have removed the posts over at Dal’s blog on Scrapbook 185, if that was really Forrest? Come on!!!! That poster used exactly the same verbage that Not Forrest Fenn has used here. bob pointed that out to me.

        • Well, Lisa, I’ve read all the scrapbooks and SB-32 has always been the mystery. Every time I did a search on it, TTOTC always had absolutely nothing on it, then Forrest starts posting under this headding?
          Do you know that SB-32 headding has been on this web site for a very long time and has been dormant. Not one single post, now this is the talk of the town and it started with Forrest. When I heard that Forrest was posting here and what it was being posted under, it blew my mind.
          This is Forrest or Dal?

      • Not Forrest Fenn – Since my hillside Cartouche-like blaze sits on one side of Forrest’s face, just like the mysterious face on Mars, then for once I agree with you. The answer IS staring me and everyone else right in the face:

        photos.app.goo.gl/qEc27jSsGSekl4Yc2

        Note: how Dal and the REAL Forrest Fenn collaborated to create that photo using Photoshop, confirming my blaze on Forrest’s Resource Page for The Chase, after I shared it with him via his REAL email address.

        And I will keep hammering out the details of my solve, over and over, like Vulcan at his forge, here on these blogs, until the REAL Forrest can’t stand it anymore and agrees to go “in there” with me to my hidey spot. And believe me. I can be relentless.

        If you don’t like it, go back over to your “puppet”, Dal’s, site. But I don’t think you’ll get past Goofy again. I remember him saying, after he came over here to make sure you were the same Not Forrest Fenn poster, that he was thinking of hunting you down and making an example out of you. Maybe I’ll encourage him to do that. I just can’t understand why you just don’t post as yourself, if you have such original ideas to share…seems pretty wounded and cowardly to me. IMO.

    wow im seeing the same thing Forrest does….people conjure up ideas from something he never said……like this huge detail….forrest never said the poem would lead to the bronze box.and it doesnt. not now, not ever.

    Bob, Actually I got it right. I was trying to make a point with Lisa that I also think it’s ludicrous the treasure chest would be anywhere at the BB Museum. I am in agreement with you that the chest referred to in the poem is not the bronze box with the gold. I actually think the “Chest” Refers to two things the shape of the box, and a human chest.

    Hope the A team has a good week. I’m taking a break from the blog this week to get some work accomplished.

        • Blaze……after sending before and after pictures of what I feel is the blaze he came out with Scrapbook 105. The “before” picture was a small tree with a white top in a meadow in Red River, NM. There was an image of a chest on top of a white rock with three dandelions. The “after” shot (taken a few weeks later) shows the white rock with the dandelions, no tree and no chest. In Scrapbook 105 Forrest includes and image that looks like the blaze I noted. Pay close attention to the sentence where he mentions the dandelions. There were other Scrapbook comments (related to my conversations with him). He’s a real game player or should I say cheater.

    Lisa, do you think Forrest actually buried his treasure chest below the Buffalo Bill Center’s Teepees or what? Weather inside or outside of the center, any treasure left there would naturally cause the BBC to believe forrest bequeathed it to them, given his long association with BBC. Right?

    great find Lisa, do you realize that if that photo had been taken just fifteen minutes earlier the X shadow would have been on the front doors? oh so close. i can see the X on the lawn just in front of the bronze statue of buffalo bill. the X created by the logepoles that extend out of the top of the teepee. just like the Hardy Boys mystery novel, book 32 in the series. and it was the Hardy Boys father who always told them to “take a sandwich and flashlight” . maybe it’s about time I sent Forrest the winning solution and claim victory for the A-team.

    you are correct Bur, Forrest isnt going to put an X on a map for you, he cant because the X is always moving.

      Objectives:Students should concentrate on:Contour lines, slope, gradient, map scale, map legend, profile construction.Students will construct a topographic map using by walking a series of trails and recording elevations and counting paces. In addition students will create a map legend and place symbols on the map in correct locations. The students will then calculate slope and create a map legend. Using their map students will create a topographic profile.Procedure:Using the map above pace off the trail listed: BA, CA, DA, EA, FA.1.While pacing the trail, stop at the marked blazes and record the elevation at each location and how many steps you are from the trailhead on Data Sheet 1.a.You must keep a total count of steps from each trail (B,C,D,E,F) from the start to the tree which marks point A.2.While stopped at each marked blaze,record the slope in that exact spot as F=Flat, M= Moderate, S=Steep on Data Shett 1.3.Using your best guess based on paces you have taken and Figure 1, mark the blazes on Figure 1 above. 4.Make contour lines on Figure 1 using a contour interval of 10ft. Start with 460 (near the tree which is spot A).5.On figure 1 insert a Map Scale (a graphic scale), the contour intervaland a map legend. The legend should include: the Gravel Road, the Track & the Path…

            Look at a detailed map for description or locations symbols. Types of symbols topo, control, cultural, orienteering, street, geography, terrain, custom, universal……that have a X of some kind in the symbol.

            Like these- forest ranger house, patrol lookout, power station, windmill, site of battle, picnic site, camp site, mine, church, direction n s e w, tower / mask, special water feature, locked gate, fence, barbecue, collecting site, site of antiquity, badlands…….are a few of the symbols.

            So your teepee X does fall under the camp site symbol, and that symbol is a teepee and clearly it has a X in it. But is that the correct X on a map?
            There is a X in proximity of my final clue solve and it’s symbol is one of the above.

            Just thinking out loud,

    • Anna – If you flip an F over and lay it on top of the other F, you get a E. If you reverse one of those Fs and flip it over, and lay it on top, you get a ladder, like the one that’s being used to climb the ramparts on the bronze chest. And as I mentioned in a reply at Dal’s, reversing a 4 and flipping it over, lining it up along the vertical axis, and then rotating the result 45 degrees, creates an angular 8 or the symbol of infinity (aka Double Omega = 88?). Or an hourglass of time….

      I like tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches, but I am willing to try Forrest’s favorite, with Pimiento Cheese.

  28. So now we know the real Forrest Fenn has read this post.
    Not the imposter below which most knew he is.

    Now, Lisa has to figure out which exact comment F was talking about.

    “Lisa, You’re still not close”
    dalneitzel.com/2017/11/22/scrapbook-one-hundred-eighty-five/#comment-394533
    “SB 32”

    Keep in mind the avatar matches pretty good but we don’t know the IP address to confirm, but I am assuming it is from SF NM considering dul or Goofy would have deleted them if they were not from his address.
    It is also possible to recreate & use his avater & change the IP address to where F lives & would fool most webmasters.

    The imposter stated below:
    “This is SB32.”
    “Lisa, you’re not even close.”

    Will the real Forrest Fenn show himself here?
    I hope he does, just so the fake can join us searchers for some honest entertainment.

    • Jake – Goofy has returned! And Not Forrest Fenn had been vanquished at Dal’s, so your links you just posted go nowhere. But all my fun replies to NFF were deleted also. When that happens, I think of my past life as a Tibetan monk, and how we used to use colored sand to make mandalas, and then we would take our hands and mix up the sand and erase them. 😉

  29. 32° is cold.

    It’s also an extension of the township number/line that must be equally divided. This is also my blaze line that passes through the actual blaze. Two meanings both being equal at the same time.

    Your effort will be worth the cold.

    This is SB32.

    Lisa, you’re not even close.

      (Quote)

    • Not Forrest Fenn – Didn’t Goofy at Dal’s say that he looked up your IP address, which was in North Carolina or New Jersey or somewhere on the East Coast? Nowhere close to Santa Fe. So how would you know if I am close or not to the location of the bronze chest?

      My hidey spot is between the townships 1 and 6…that kind of reminds me of the numerical equivalent of the Golden Ratio, namely Phi = f = 1.6….

        (Quote)

      • Not.Forrest Fenn – And my Double Omega Island blaze, which looks just like a circumpunct, the alchemical symbol for gold, is right near that border between the 1 and 6 townships on the topo also. That blaze is almost exactly 500ft. From my hidey spot up the hill. The value of Phi = f = 500. And that is the ef-fort that is worth the cold, that requires two creek crossings, and an off-trail, brave.and in the wood, uphill climb to reach it Oh, and Forrest’s thumb is in the meadow, right at that township boundary, as well.

        Don’t artists use their thumbs to estimate distance and perspective? I know architects often use the Golden Ratio…

    • Forrest, it makes our day (as Clint Eastwood would say) when you pay A-Team a visit. So if 32 is cold, what is hot? 22 for the win to match your Mesa Verde bracelet? Or the reverse of 32 being 23? I’m not sure 22 falls on the same line as 32 in most townships, but there are exceptions now an then.

      • Okay, Forrest – I’ll try to answer your question.

        Guess #1: members of your family and their friends have been within 200 physical feet. You once stated in an interview that you were surprised your family hadn’t found the treasure. (Paraphrased.)

        Guess #2: people searching on google earth have theoretically been close but didn’t know it.

        Guess #3: tourists near a public place, like downtown Santa Fe, but you said north of there.

          (Quote)

        • Anna – I like your #2, and rest assured, that I knew it. I emailed the coordinates to Forrest, so he knew it also. But since I have not yet been BOG to my hidey spot, I am not technically in the 200′ Club:

          Guess #2: people searching on google earth have theoretically been close but didn’t know it.

          Still wanna know the drill down tight focus distance capability of how close Google Earth gets to the ground…is it 200′ by any chance?

          • What makes you think that a searcher, or multiple searchers have not arrived at the blaze, but because they had not interpreted it as such, did not know that they had done so.

            “Searchers have come within about 200 feet. Some may have solved the first four clues, but I am not certain.f”

            “Can the blaze be pre-determined by the poem or can it only be determined at the search area?”

        If that was a verbal quote from an interview, maybe Forrest meant the guys working on the transmission line in my search area from PPL = PEOPLE?

        But seriously, folks, I think Eric Sloane and Peggy Fenn have both been to my hidey spot, years ago.

        • Not Forrest Fenn – And I think anyone, like Shiloh or Eric Sloane, maybe, that was flying with Forrest in his Piper Malibu plane, while circling to land at West Yellowstone Airport, may have been in the 200′ Club above my hidey spot also.

I first thought this was all a big bunch of crap but not so sure now. I don’t get excited or nervous about the chase but this definitely has my head on a swivel. Has anyoneone else looked at this? I’ve noticed lots of terrain features but can’t figure out which way to go. Up the creek? Down the canyon. Still working on that. I don’t get the Johny Depp thing either.

That’s when they bring out the massive Ore Wagon, which is pulled by a 20 mule team. They call that the Big Hitch.

          Come on Faux Fenn….. really? The the scenery is mundane, the mountains are wimpy foothills, there are hardly any trees, just scrub junipers and sagebrush. The Dry Fork of the Cimarron and its dinky falls? With the entire Rocky Mountains to hide the treasure in, you’d pick this area, 500 feet from a road to rest for eternity? I was bored when I set out to find your 200′ club picture, it was easy, I have no interest in that area.

      • howdy Forrest Fenn. i am a member of the 200′ club. years ago, i worked at a shoe store with no air conditioning. talk about hot. even in summer! i sold shoes. and when i or any other sales person sold 100 pair of shoes we got a day off with pay, a coffee mug and a key fob as reward for excellent work. funny thing is i dont drink coffee because its too hot. so i drank tea from it in stead. at the time i didnt own a car either so i only had the front door key to my apartment on the key fob. was easy to get in at night not having to fumble through many keys. those were good ole days. and of the 10 employees or so at the store only a few got our picture taken as having sold 100 pairs of shoes, we jokingly refered to ourselves as the “200 foot club” ha ha.*

    Steve –

    I think you should write a book called my opinions and sixty four questions about Fenn.I’m sure it would be a best seller.

    Is that an attempt in humor?
    Aren’t we supposed to ask questions and form opinions?
    I find this very interesting, and like I said, don’t look up from your solve, you may miss something important. After all, isn’t this the group that knows everything and agrees on nothing? From my opinion and reading through this site, it seems to me that everyone here has a different solution and everyone is waiting around for something to drop in their lap so they can confirm that they have the right place. Forrest Fenns comments might just be pie in the face for everyone here. Or it could be an imposter. I tend to think that something here seems real with this SB32. I thought it was a key, and as of this moment, no one had an answer except this Forresr Fenn? There was a bunch of BS that Dal had said, but I wonder if or who asked him to say it? I personally think that this SB32 is has been the most informative and interesting thing to surface in over 4 years be it true or not, it is interesting and worth a look.
    If Forrest confirmed that someone was very close at the beginning of the chase and went right by it, and it seems that no one else has been close since then, I would think that going back to the beginning is a great place to start.

    • I am sorry Steve – and apologize. I thought that perhaps you thought we were not serious searchers here. There are a few who are not, but we can’t help that. As far as what you wrote – I sincerely agree with you. I am just so sick and tired of everyone calling me a posser – and having written that. I promise I did not. So, as far as I can tell, and this is just my opinion, I believe that it really is FF who posted here. He knew something that I know and talked about it. I don’t believe it was a message to me personally – althought he has in the past sent messages to me in this form on Dal’s blog. Perhaps a way for me to tell everyone else that it is really him. What I would do is copy it without all the gibberish – and use it to your advantage. There is one other thing you may not know – Page 32 in his new book is about Fred Harmon…..If that means anything to you, as it does to me , I wish us both luck.

        Go ahead and email him & ask Forrest Fenn if that’s him on this blog. I am sure it’s not.

        I will not email him & ask him cause I know it’s not the real deal, so pull your rod & reel out of the water & stop looking for personal messages to help you with the treasure location. That goes for anyone looking for personal info supplied by F to a searcher including JDA who thinks every post & email from F pertains to their solve.

        Hahahahaha.

          Is it hurting you in any way that I happen to think it’s him? Just avoid my posts – that ought to work.

          It has always been that we have a freedom here on this blog – that we don’t have on other ones. Do you wish to take that freedom away me?

          For years, and still I put up with listening to people here that I disagree with. Perhaps you could do the same.

    I might see the town for the book signing.I’d like to meet Forrest and some fellow chasers.You only live once…they say.

    Santa Fe is beautiful! I went to college there back in the 70’s. It certainly has change (Grown) quite a bit since then but it still has the story book atmosphere. I have a brother and several friends that live there.

    You should send Forrest a note and ask him to have coffee with you. He likes the place Downtown Subscription. We’ve met there before.

    • Hello, Tom.

      Well…I’m going to the book signing. I’ve been watching so much of the excitement from a distance that I figure I should live a little.

      The kids are in school and my sweety is taking care of them so I’ll be travelin’ solo…kind of a quick trip.

      It’s kind of a spendy thing for me to do…but I’m doing it. Flight…rental car…(MYSTERY rental car. I hope it’s not a Gremlin. LOL! Actually, I kinda hope it is.)…hotel…all booked. Now I just hope there’s still a seat at Collected Works or I’ll be sittin’ on the curb outside. 🙂

      I won’t have much time in town…only 4 hours or so before the event…and only a few hours in the morning before driving back to the airport. I don’t reckon I’ll trouble Forrest for a special sit-down. I just look forward to meeting him and listening to what he has to say and getting my hands on his new book(s)…SIGNED!

      That’s good enough for me at this moment.

      I’ll be staying just northeast of the plaza…so I figure I’ll be strolling around downtown quite a bit. If you know of a nice, authentic Southwestern cafe or diner near there that I MUST try…then by all means…please let me know.

      Thank you, Tom. I’m really looking forward to meeting Forrest (and Friends) and seeing Santa Fe, New Mexico.

      Now to work my tail off so I can finish a project before I go.

    The grave will be at the paw PAD – the nucleus of the poem. I have no intention of saying more than that unless I decide to tell all. Take care not to invest your heart in this chase after Fenn’s gold. Not all is as you may believe. Naivety is only your friend if your goal is to have fun. I had fun, and always looked in beautiful places so that I wasn’t disappointed. The poem is a map, in grid form, and the solution is far simpler than believed.

        I like the area’s above Hebgen & below Big Sky. The only reason I stretch it to below Big Sky is his writing in L&C, something like we came out about 50 miles from where we started.

          It was on sale. :/

          • JC1117 – I love Joel Osteen. I used to watch him every Sunday.
            And I am so glad you went on another excursion…no matter how it turned out. Just keep getting out there and keep hope alive.

          • JC1117 -I enjoy you and lisa being here also . You both seem to have your head screwed on with a thought process I can relate to thoroughly . You both would be good to have as a treasure hunting partner. And lisa I just love you dearly . I would be thrilled to meet you or JC . Maybe we could go get FF treasure together .Trust is the key.

  40. Final and last clue.
    You have the starting place.
    Remember it’s 80 miles and 100 miles from my home and 8.25 miles South of the border.
    You should really change your title to something other than the A Team.
    Everything you need is in this scrapbook.

  41. To set the record straight.

    I gave the Canadian boys the correct area in private and they dubiously corrected many years of misdirection. Listen to what they have to say prior to my interview.

    My original statement on the direction of North and location, still holds true.

    Although it seemed like I purposely was misleading, my map was honestly a big mistake. I had to change my narration on the location. I have as yet, to get it straight, so this will straighten it all out, if I can keep it straight myself. My old timers is starting to show.

    Here is the actual sign. You will only see this after you return to town and not on the way out to the treasure. f

    • Dear Forrest – so nice of you to post that info for us. But, I was thinking since just a few people read this particular blog – I am wondering in the interest all fairness why you are not posting this same info on Dal’s blog or Jenny’s blog?

        (Quote)

      • Forest is not Forrest Fenn . This ELEV sign is a huge misdirection and this so called Forest can’t even answer one simple question I asked that would make it crystal clear it is him. He claims to have all the answers but refuses to answer a simple question that is non bearing on anything to do with the treasure or the hunt. The comments here from this forest show lack of Intelligence and education or sophistication that forrest has acquired .

    • I just found this searching for a clue. I’ve never been to this site, and frankly, it’s difficult to navigate and keep a single line of thought with this forum.

      1. Is this really Forrest Fenn?
      2. I was wondering why Forest said he thought the treasure would be found way to soon? I have noticed Forrest had abruptly changed the search location from the original being “In the mountains north of Santa Fe” to the Rocky Mountains. I was suspicious when the map came out and all the furry that went with it, and finally Forrest bungling the Rocky Mountains. On several interviews, he really messed it up. He was having difficulties between the two statements as if his mind was torn between the truth and the lie. Now it’s back to the original “In the mountains north of Santa Fe” as said by the latest interview from the Canadins.
      3. Is this Forrest making this right?
      4. Has anyone put this together yet? I don’t think I have all the parts or do I have them in order yet, if there is an order, but something about this screams Forrest Fenn and I can’t put my finger on it. I need to just extract his quotes and get rid of all the gibberish and commentary from other posters.
      5. Did anyone notice that the 456 picture is a NM highway marker?
      6. What’s the Johny Depp connection?

      I think that everyone here has their own solve location and just sits on it thinking it’s the right place, instead of looking up from their solution to seek out new locations or understand all the clues. I’m sure many here have a lot of their clues figured out and can make most of the hints from the books match their solution. The question is, is there a place that all of the clues match and all of the hints match up perfectly, in order and confirmed by the books? A simple solution, without floating hats, cyphers and bible quotes and such?

      Is this really Forrest Fenn?

      • Steve –

        I think you should write a book called my opinions and sixty four questions about Fenn. I’m sure it would be a best seller.

    Either the pond in FF’s Santa Fe backyard or someone trying to emulate such. Either way, it doesn’t help me.

    The wise men share a joke;
    I run to grasp divining signs
    To satisfy the hoax
    The yellow jester does not play
    But gentle pulls the strings
    And smiles as the puppets dance
    In the court of the crimson king

  46. Hello mr.fenn , I’ve been to your white bottom bird bath with your 32 under my toes . I took the wrong way but still could take a soak after all the sweating . I know from what we see it’s nice and neat but in real time it’s been taken . And I know the ones that like warm toes can still have a heavy load 1 to 2 times a year it’s just I’m not gonna take that box of poison. I’ve love Crome just not in a can and that box is very full now. I love to be where the record is standing and to dream that dream and your time had more chance then ever will happen in this time. I also find it funny that everyone talks about the Hardy boys but that all we see when we have breakfast. I’m a slow reader so I’m still reading my pages. I’m just not good with proper English. I’m trying to get rid of my readers elbow. I definitely need therapy, I wish I could get it everyday. All I do is think about my next appointment. The semitry around 32 and the big bird bath just isn’t the same while bathing then from above any more. It is no longer there . The shadow is gone , no longer. Mw.

  47. In Scrapbook 32, my initials are the very first clue needed to start the puzzle.
    It is also “where warm waters halt” and “water high”.

    Remember, there are no coincidences.

    Everything else I said in Scrapbook 32, will make sence once the starting place is found.
    You will need a good map and/or Google Earth.
    Only a USGS Topo map will get you to my scrapbook 32 and not GE satellite view.

      • Forrest:
        Notice how bird keep eye on Tonto? Same for Wallapatookunks horse.

        Forrest, Is the raven named Quoth?

        My friend…if I come back to visit you, may I have the honor of seeing the collection in your vault and hearing you play the piano? Not asking you in April is a huge regret. Or perhaps you could tape a video with Dal touring the vault for all to enjoy. The best things are always hidden away.

        Your treasure box will never be mine, I’ve given up that dream..,but you are such a delight to visit with:-) The best treasures are friends.

      • Yea right Forrest! You know better than that! I had it figured out long before now. My wish has nothing to do with you telling me anything! Quite frankly I’m surprised that you would make a comment like that. Are you really who you say you are? If you are this whole treasure thing has changed you. The Forrest has to much beetle kill!

      • Ok, Janet Landgard, we know you or Dan are posing. You do not write like F at all, you don’t lack his intelligence either! Lol. P.s….no one believes you are Forrest!

    Can’t we all just get along?

    I would hope so.

    “I reckon so.” If America’s original bad a$$ could get along with 10 bears.

    Just have to say how much I love Clint Eastwood. I was able to shake his hand many moons ago when he was filming Thunderbolt & lightfoot at the Gates of The Mountains, Montana. He was a class act.

    Hey, maybe if you’re in the wood…you’re east of the divide.

  49. “I am Chief Wallapatookunk”
    I am scrapbook 32.

    I left my horse there as well, on the BINGO card under 0-32. That way my horse can keep an eye on me.

    I keep my own eye on square 0-05.

    My BIG “i” “As I”, is over one mile long and holds my “saddle”, on my cheek full of chew. “Crazy 8’s or is that 08?”

    Your “I” is here too.
    Each and every seeker/”reader” is a willing participant when you seek me.
    Ask yourself, “the answers I already know”.
    This is where you, become a part of my masters, poem.
    This is your “I”.

    “answers” is supposed to be plural because it is more than 1 answer you will need to know to progress from here.

    This is the riddle of the 5 “l’s”.
    figure the last “I” out, and the title is yours.

    • Brevity…check…could be Forrest Fenn

      Bravery…check…could be Forrest Fenn
      (Anyone claiming to be Forrest on these blogs is brave).

      Numerically…check…could be Forrest Fenn
      (32 is important imo)

      Cryptically…check…could be Forrest Fenn
      Why the heck would he be posting here without clairifying it’s him?

      Confusingly…check…could be Forrest Fenn
      I have little understanding of who he is, after 4 years of studying for my degree in Fennology.

      Coincidentally…I’m not actually Anna…I’m 42. My birthday is 4-2 and the chest weighs 42, and I’ve skied the Blaze. Nothing is coincidence…right?

  50. It’s a goddam conspiracy by dal why 32 is missing!!!

    Just kidding. I think dal is the one who numbers the scrapbooks & doesn’t want to elaborate in detail why he skipped that number.
    He has commented on it in the past without deep detail.

    No clue or hint here until Forrest comes out & says he told dal to skip it but I don’t think that’s what happened here.

  51. Once upon a while

    Trace the 4 stars on my cover and mark only the three large dots that form a triangle in the middle of the four stars.
    Flip the paper over because I’m fishing from the other side, and transfer those marks through the paper. Rotate exactly 90 degrees Counterclockwise.

    This is your guide.

    Now only use the three dots in the middle and the large star. The other stars were clues. The large star is my treasure.

    This will align with only one solution that is,

    Some where out there…

    Use this with all of the other information I have posted here.

    Only one man knows, and no one else believes, but it is true.

    You can only know the truth if you purchase my book, and follow.

            And I was very sorry to hear about your husband’s passing. My deepest condolences to you.

            I feel good that I made a brave attempt a week ago Thursday to go “alone in there”, despite the many grizzes present. It was a lovely overnight trip.

      1. Fun that you ironically posted at exactly 4:24.
      2. Looking forward to your new book, but not able to be in Santa Fe for release.
      3. Tried posting a photo of my comical ‘marvel gaze’ but the site won’t upload it.
      4. Thanks again for the sip of J.K.’s brandy.

      • i posted this years ago on Dal’s blog…..the reason there is no scrapbook 32 is because of the Hardy Boys Mystery novels. it was the boys father who always reminded them to take a sandwich and a flashlight. and book number 32 of the Hardy boys series is about hidden treasure. featuring indians, gold, and a shadow at night. but what do i know? a lot of nothing.
