In his new book he mentions that it is about 10 miles. He also says this (reads it) in the Moby Dickens vid. It can be a question that is as ambiguous as anything else in the poem. No doubt there is some driving and walking involved, but yeah, just how far? Might be "blaze" dependent. How far is your blaze from a trail, river, etc. Don't go where a 79-80 yr. old man can't go - with a box of gold on yer back.

I think you might have to peddle and not paddle!
Hi Scott, The way I read the poem, "too far to walk" is the distance between WWH and HOB.
What if it's only too far to walk because you don't actually need to walk form WWWH to HoB?
I've always considered it to be a clue to use your imagination.
I believe you've got it Tomwhat...To me it means you are stationary and not traveling anywhere... Smile



EDIT: In my solution you cannot walk from WWWH to hoB...Not places on the landscape or a map IMO... Smile
Hey there digger...Let's see if I can do this without giving away to much...Realize though this is as the lines pertain to my solution only and are not being stated as the correct interpretation by any means...That is yet to be determined... Smile



I've stated enough already in posts about my interpretation of WWWH, so I'll skip that part for now...More at a later date when I begin to divulge my solution on the blogs for all to play with... Wink



For my solution the line "Put in below the home of Brown" has a dual meaning and purpose...In one instance I "put in" by doing something else as you suggested...And, in the same instance, my "home of Brown" is most likely not where anyone else would think it to be...In the second instance, this line indicates an action to be taken at a specific location...Both instances will also be fully divulged at a later date... Smile



BTW, this line of the poem for me has nothing to do with the preceding line, "Not far, but too far to walk"; it's purpose is as described in my previous post and these two lines are parts of separate clues as I see them... Smile



I hope this helps assuage your curiosity?...And thanks for asking, don't mind answering when I can do so without giving away too much to too many...As I have stated, my solution is way out of the ordinary from others I have read on the blogs...Just a different method of reading and interpreting is all I can say... Big Grin
Sure thing digger...Plan to spill all the beans once I'm on the way to my spot...Won't make a difference then how many people know what I did and how...I'll be right and gone quietly by then or wrong and sick from eating crow, six of one and a half-dozen of the other to me...Good luck also digger...
You may not want to spill the beans too soon there samsmith. What if you miss something while you're out there and don't figure that out till later? You might want to go back?, that of course being that your benefactor doesn't leave your bones there instead of Fenn's, if it is not found or decides to leave you in peace and goes in peace. Could very well be certainly no place for the meek. :-) Be brave samsmith!! ........ be brave!! ........in those there woods!!
