Okay, here goes my take on the treasure. I have lots to say, but I intend to take this slowly & attempt to back up every statement I make. No one has to agree with my conjectures, but based on my numerous conversations with FF & emails that I rec'd that I have only recently read, I am 99.999% certain that a FF treasure is STILL hidden somewhere in the wilderness & corresponds to the poem clues.

I have been alternately angry & sad since FF died. The reasons are many & varied. There are emails that I have yet to read & videos that he sent to me that I have NOT yet watched. He would write me several times daily with all sorts of attachments. I couldn't keep up with it all. Anyway, I'm just now getting around to analyzing his statements & what it all means.

I am convinced that FF took his own life due to a major illness. He had lost excessive amounts of weight & had become very frail. Last winter took quite a toll on him to the point that he did NOT think he could face another one. FF told me he was tying up his loose ends & getting all his affairs in order. His emails to me became increasingly despondent & discussed his failing health.

So, from what I have deduced, FF needed to have the treasure found before he died. I do NOT know much about this Jack Stuef person ... NOR do I care. He's unimportant. As I said, if FF planned this out the way I'm certain that he did, he could "have his cake & eat it too". Whatever treasure FF claimed was found, it was definitely NOT his legacy one. Of this fact I am certain.

The poem has yet to be solved & the "other" treasure retrieved. NO way whatsoever is the supposed "find" of Jack's the one hidden by FF that matches the poem. I tried my darnest to get FF to admit to me that the treasure he "supposedly" hid in WY is the one that fits the clues in the poem. He finally admitted that he could NOT honestly tell me that. Many times I asked him flat out, yes or no, but he ended up by pleading with me to drop the matter & just be patient. He said there was more to come soon.

I believe that FF ended the Chase the way he did in order to protect his family, & that he did NOT want us searchers to carry on without him. He stated that he "hid the treasure to be searched for, ... NOT to be found."

FF also said many times that: "The person who finds the treasure will have studied the poem over & over, & thought & analyzed & moved with confidence. Nothing about it will be accidental."

I believed FF then, ... & I believe him still.

More later. G'night, everyone.
Your previous posts say otherwise.
So, Forrest needed the treasure found before he died, but “his legacy treasure” was not meant to be found, only searched for. So, he quickly compiled another treasure with all the same stuff in it except the frog and the emerald ring and took the thing to Wyoming and hid it in a place where he thought the book, and the poem, and all of his interviews would lead Jack Steuf to find it? Then Forrest tells you there’s more to come, but instead takes his own life to cheat nature.

You say you believe what Forrest says, but when he tells you that he can’t honestly say that he did what YOU are claiming he did, you don’t believe him. He can’t honestly say it because it’s not true. Simple.

If Forrest actually did all of that emailing that you claim, then you should know him better than that. That is how he talks. He said something very similar to Steph over that DB Cooper book. He said something very similar to me over my solution.

Lastly, you need to post the emails if you want someone to believe you. Anyone can claim whatever they want and virtually no one will believe it whether it’s true or not. That’s how you back up your conjecture, show the emails that you base your opinion on. Otherwise, I don’t know what you think you’re resurrecting, and for whom.
Nice deduction line there. I'm getting rather frustrated that so many believe it's still out there. We haven't had a direct promise from anyone that it is. We all saw a meeting that happened over 8 months ago that appeared to be a dirty chest and rusty contents getting counted and put in a bank vault. We must break delusion.
Just waiting until the snow is gone. More to come...

You definitely have my attention. You've always been one of the credible ones on this forum.

I'm envious on how Fenn took such a liking to you, and others. I rarely ever got more than a sentence or two from him whenever I emailed him; and I was always respectful and never poked for hints or anything. Kudos to you!

The problem with Becky is that she never responds to questions. She just preaches. Kinda cult like.
I am willing to give Becky the benefit of the doubt on this one. I, too, believe that Forrest came to the conclusion that the chase had to end before he died. He gave out a flurry of additional hints to push it along during the winter, but then something got triggered in May/early June.

I can't speak to whether there is still something out there, because I haven't seen the correspondence Becky has. But I do believe the chest (or a duplicate chest) got moved to a "findable" spot by Shiloh, or someone else, and then Jack Stuef was encouraged to "keep looking" in that area (or possibly he was more heavily involved). My opinion might change if Jack can ever link the poem clues to a path that led to the location.

In any event, I will be interested to see what Becky has to say about this. Please be civil in your comments as this plays out. This is her thread, so let her add to it with minimal criticism until it is all out there.
Maybe someone will ask 8bitkachina what she knows. She seemed to have advance knowledge that the chest was found. In the days prior to the announcement she was active here with strange comments alluding to something coming. She said to get your cease and desist letters ready, or some nonsense like that. Then she told me that “the last time was the last time.” I assumed that meant that she was in direct communication with Forrest who was pissed at me for railing on Dal, and the last time we visited would be the last time.

I saved screen shots for a while. 8bit has deleted all of her posts.
I’m afraid you (and many of us) did not have the correct plumbing to warrant such affections. Don’t hate the playa, hate the game.
