Are you by chance unemployed with a truck load of kids? Big Grin



Welcome to the site!
Well Dalpretzel……..It would make sense that a Texan would have an advantage in figuring out what’s in Fenn’s head……..But alas, it hasn’t helped yet. My wife and I are both from Texas (we live in California for now); and all of our kids live in Texas now…..I’m still looking after starting the chase not long after Fenn released TTOTC.



Welcome to the insanity.
well what about a guy from Tennessee kinda we are Texans at heart. we volunteered to help at the Alamo, I hope that makes me Texan enough ,now would one of you Texans be kind enough to volunteer to help me cause nothing else is working.just kidding. go texans

It will be a purple!!!
Agreeing with tyounis regarding "Know the man, know the treasure", I also apply that to my treasure location solution. If you can mentally and emotionally visualize what it would be like to "sit" at your location, ask yourself if this is a location that Forrest would choose as special and important to "all things" Fenn, a place that incorporates all that you have learned about this unique man. Then, if it meets that "test", can you work the Poem backwards and understand the masterpiece of woven threads that Forrest created in this Poem?



I also agree with Stephanie that "It might take a girl.."!



I've never been to Texas (as yet), but who knows, you can't count out "New Yorkers" or any other state...

Interesting, the statement ff made about the place being special. I'm not really sure how to take that. He has mentioned a number of places that were/are special or have special meaning or special memories. So would the special place the chest is hidden be a small local or an over all area? could he mean his favorite fishing hole or an entire mountain range? or even an entire state? Just a puzzling thought to the "knowing" of the man.
Seeker, if you follow the Poem, interpreting his clues along the way, you will realize how much the words, phrases and lines and stanzas all are chosen as an expression and extension of the person that he is. To answer you question about small local vs overall area, my area is semi-specific and is fine tuned by knowing what and where the Blaze is.



I am comfortable (and quietly confident) in my location, especially as it does relate to what I have learned about Mr. Fenn. That doesn't mean, in any way, that my solution is better than anyone else's.



My husband and I did go to our location in August and, like other searchers, wished we had gone one step further. I can tell you, however, that there was a "feeling in the air" that we were indeed someplace special. We will fine tune our last thoughts and return there next year.

RP,

I agree the "spot" of the hidden chest will be in a small local or "semi specific" ( I like that ). I guess what I'm referring to is: the spot of the chest THE special place he has talked about. Or the area ( possible 60,000 acres more or less as an example) just of it's natural or memorable location. I personally feel it's the latter of the two.



But one more question for you if ya don't mind. Your blaze... not asking what or where... Is there just one?
Seeker,



Your first question is difficult for me to answer without possibly saying too much.



Regarding my thought on the blaze - there is just one.
