Clarification for something said on HOR
Just so everyone knows, I don’t have the authority to approve anyone for the group. I believe only Stephanie does, and she has been extremely busy on some other major projects (NOT chase related—she has moved on), so please have a little patience.

Maybe she can give BT the ability to approve new members, as I am also extremely busy lately because...

...we sold our house and are extremely excited to be moving to a new place!

Where, we don’t know yet, but are looking closely at many states and trying to find the perfect spot where we can experience all four seasons without extremes of temperature and with great places to hike!

Right now we’re looking at acreage around the Cumberland Gap area! Looks beautiful!

Maryland is beautiful Mindyand only a couple of hours from here. Don't go by a lake with the fees. Big Bear over in that area has raised maintenance fees sky-high. It has lots of snow though. Moderate temps would be Tenn, NC, etc., lol.
I am in eastern OH as you know and diligently looked at elevations around 1000'. The last pole shift shows water about 800' elevation coverage. You would like Shenandoah Forest area of NY on the Ocean side as it is warmer. Stay a bit on the southeastern portion because of the major fault. Cumberland Gap has a tiny fault coming up from western VA. Pay attention to those on USGS. WV would be ideal but not many jobs. It is very economical in WV if you have income and don't need a job. The mountain areas on I-79 just north of Charleston, WV are beautiful. I worked for Dept. of Highways when I-79 was built from Charleston up to Clarksburg/Weston area.
Good luck with the search; I spent 5 years searching while living in my 1902 1200sf apartment. I now have 3000 sf finished with 800 sf garage in basement (and it is actually mostly finished) and a 30 x 40 detached garage. We have a small pond, fruit trees, vineyard, berries and 1 1/2 acre 7 1/2' tall wire fenced area to keep out the deer. The deer eat every plant you have. Just warning you about the deer in that area. I am windy; sorry. Good Luck.

LOL

Mongo never found the treasure, so how could he give it away? Slick was the first to point out the Folsom Falls solution long before Mongo did. Mongo supposedly just investigated other people's published solves with his (supposed/imaginary?) panel of experts and decided that Slick's was the best. It doesn't take a lot of brains to do that, but it does require a "leap of faith" that the correct solution is among the ideas you are comparing (all of them "failed" searches to begin with). Slick also never found the treasure.

They/he are among the class of searchers who always claim that Fenn moved the treasure, never hid the treasure, or put in new roadblocks to get access to the treasure when they don't find anything at their solve location. Or they claim someone took it and is keeping quiet. They can never admit that their solution is wrong. I am not a psychiatrist, so I don't know why certain people adopt this line of thinking. I guess they don't want to admit that their intelligence fell short in the task at hand.

Of course, we all have fallen short in that regard. Most of the rest of us admit it and continue the chase in hopes of figuring things out, or we give up graciously. We don't claim to be right while standing there holding no treasure in our hands.

Which type are you?

Folsom just goes along with the Johnny Cash song, but it's not the right Johnny, imo. Agree, Mongo did not find the treasure, he just went to where he THOUGHT the treasure was, which, again, imo, was not the corret location.

RE: Clarification for something said on HOR
Nutjob, all we ever asked is that if anyone so convinced of Mongos truth in the location, why doesn't he post the solve. That could be the convincing. Give out the nine clue answers, beginning with wwwh, and why it is correct. How was that clue determined. Then go from there. What all the secrecy about? I never enjoyed, "Because I said." In fact, it kinda pissed me off. The "I know something you don't know," is just as bad. And that is all we get from anyone who stands behind Mongo. Sorry, this retoric has not convinced me, and I plan on going botg at first opportunity.

Well, Mongo did have his "in-house assets" he queried with his "Computer Analytics" last year:

I think he has posted a little of his solve. But he is really just confirming Slick's solve, which included Folsom Falls as where warm waters halt (goes underground?), and a nearby area that appears to be a Google Earth visual of a horse's head with a headdress. Apparently "headdress" is an old definition for "halt". There are a few other Google Earth visuals close by that they tie to the poem. As a confirmer, Folsom Falls is exactly the same mileage distance from Forrest's house in Santa Fe as the numerical number of his street address in Temple, TX (with a decimal point moved). In my experience, it is very difficult for a searcher to abandon a solve once they have found what they consider to be an "Easter egg" in TTOTC. They don't allow for the possibility of coincidence or some other meaning in TTOTC. YMMV
