Better late than never?
Hi, everyone. I realize that for many of us, we're competing for the same goodies. And probably not many of us want to share too much of our solve(s) with all the other searchers. But that doesn't mean we can't have a friendly competition, right?

First, I want to wish all of you good adventures in this treasure hunt,
including lots of fun and memorable times. And safety and health in
the mountains and other places.

A little about me: I've been searching for the trove and posting on this blog for a while, but haven't told many other searchers about myself. So here goes.

I'm not what one would generally call a "young" person. In fact, by some definitions, you might consider me a "senior citizen", based solely on my chronological age. But like Forrest, sometimes I like to think of myself like a teenager. It may be partly because certain biological things (that typically occur in the teenage years) have quite an influence on the way we think about many things. Big stuff that affects attitude, behavior, relationships with friends, family, and strangers, etc. But I don't want to bore you too much with the details right now. The
biological things are fairly typical in my life.

I live west of the Rocky Mountains, and have been on a few search
trips. More than 3 but less than 7. Each time I think I have gotten
a bit closer to where the trove is. I don't want to disclose too much
info about my interpretation of the poem, but am willing to give my
opinion about the general area. It's very scenic, and I think I have
a bit of an understanding about why it might be quite special to Mr.
Fenn.

On my first search trip, I went alone during one of the months of spring.
The ground was muddy and slippery, and I wasn't wearing decent
hiking boots. Since that trip, I have been better-prepared. I don't
recommend anyone go BOTG alone on a search hike, if it is more than
about 1/4 mile long one-way. Safety should be strictly emphasized.

I will have more info to post after my next search trip, which is planned
for this summer (2019). Thanks for reading.
