In the wood / bullseye / target / crosshairs
On hoD, I recently read a suggestion that "in the wood" means "bullseye". And I remembered that I used to have a dartboard with a wooden bullseye
that was painted red. The rest of the dartboard, where a dart would stick, appeared to be a big tightly-wound spool of paper.

It was fairly recently (perhaps within the last few months) that I first saw
any mention by FF or anyone else that the concept of "X marks the spot" might be applicable in this treasure hunt. I believe that FF said that (paraphrasing) although there is no real X marked on a map, the X is
there "in spirit".

A rifle scope typically has CROSSHAIRS to align with one's intended target. This fact tends to support the idea that an X (even if not literally visible
on the ground) could show where the TC is. The important thing is to
determine how the X is defined.

Good luck to all searchers. Please believe that FF did more thinking
(while creating and fine-tuning the poem) than one might otherwise
believe. I kid you not.

How many times do you think he has posted the 'X'¿ Several.

he said various times "I'm not going to put an X on it" ..... that was on the Today show elevation clue (where he blundered and said 7,000 ft)

I love the dart board analogy...

IMO he's drawing attention to the Omegas. What's wrong with an "O" on the map, it is HIS MARK you know.

I also think he likes to say the opposite, like wwwh not associated with a dam.... (but hoB is imo) So I like to look at any mention of "NOT" this or that
