F putting a message in the poem such as "byg layke, he'd suth n luk unda rok" is taking the piss. F is way too clever for that. It would be embarrassing to do that, and embarrassing to suggest that is a solution. He is an imagination type of person, not a code/ coordinate kinda guy.

I don't blame wk for posting his ideas as he may believe in them, so good luck to him. If ppl want to part with their money the fair play. I reckon my solve would go for $100 apiece, but I wouldn't sell it for $10,000 because anybody, and I mean anybody that reads it would know its right, I have morals and wouldn't want to spoil the chase. Its such a masterpiece that it deserves better.
My solve is right too. No one has read yours.

Which state did you search in? It's not a difficult question.

If the question will never help solve the poem then why are you avoiding answering it?

WTF MrMagica....Look at my post here..RE: Your post ???!!!

OMG! le Chef, thanks! He asked the same question that he said his bottom set year 7s would ask. HAHAHHHHAAAA! Like I told him, they should solve the poem for him.
Fundamental Design I'm not sure what part of your question is your words and what part is Forrest's. If you can give a reference I'll check it out.

Recently Forrest said that someone had solved the first four clues. Presumably to solve clues 2, 3 and 4 that person would have to know they'd got clue 1 right? Yet that person hasn't found the chest. This seems to contradict the assumption in your question.
@White Knight, it's no assumption on my part. It's in the same interview by ff of what you write that he said someone might have figured the first 4 clues. Just read the whole interview. It is listed in the start of the current "re:Forrest gets mail 9 " thread. It's all Forrest's words.
Read it then reply. Thanks.

Here it is White Knight.

Are there signs that people are getting closer to solving your puzzle? How many clues have people solved now?
Searchers have come within about 200 feet. Some may have solved the first four clues, but I am not certain.

You have told people to stay at home unless they have solved the first clue.
If you don’t know where you are going any trail will take you there.

Do expect that people will somehow *know* for sure once they have found the first clue?
No, many people have found the first clue but they didn’t know it. Until someone finds the treasure they will not know for sure that they have discovered the first clue.

Or they might have found it without realizing it?
Yes

Is it an advantage to buy The Thrill of the Chase and Too Far to Walk?
There are hints in my TTOTC book that can help solve the clues in the poem.
This is illogical. If someone has solved the first four clues then they must know they’ve solved the first clue.

Only if they used the first clue to get to the 2nd 3rd and 4th clue. That would create a better picture and visual that you are on the right path.
But if you have them separated from one another, then there is really no way to see if you know what you are doing. Even ff wasn't certain. This means that, there are several ways to get to the chest, but all of those ways add up to the specific location. And no shortcut, because you have to use a clue to find another clue. You don't necessarily need to do them in order if they all coordinate with each other. The 9th clue is hidden because you have to have 8 clues to find the 9th. The 9th will give you the location, and all of the clues will tell you what to do when you get to that location, as they are all redundant.
Just take the chest and go in peace. A "Y" is in a Circle for peace. Go in circle.
Y is it that I must go. Go in circle.
The answer I already know. aNSWEr. All directions equal a Circle.
Tired= Tire= Circle
Circles are everywhere.
You end where you started. Whatever state fits best with the poem and stories, then that is the state you will end in. Throw out the map in too far to walk. He made the letters in the title "not capitalized" on purpose. Because ITS NOT IMPORTANT!

Yes your solve and story is illogical when put up against Forrest's most recent interview. Looks like I debunked another story by using tight focus. Sorry all, that's what it takes.
You haven't tried to counter the logic that I've given above, so I don't quite see what you've debunked with your superior intellect.
A good place to start would be where warms waters halt, doesn't mean it's the first clue. You have to find the first clue in order to start. So that could mean the first clue is not warm water, but something describing what warm water is. And it could take 9 clues to describe something that isn't a clue.. Warm waters may not be a clue at all if its where you stop at. You don't need anymore clues once you have finished.
