Naught far but 2 far 2 walk.
Three numbers in one clue. Anyone else notice that?

Many searchers have focused on the far=4, and too far to=242, but you are the first that I've seen to point out the not=naught=0.

(I don't read the other forums or blogs, so my input is somewhat limited, however.)

Excellent work!

What’s funny is that 242 is 2 for 2. So once you’ve solved BIWWWH and TIITCD, then you are 2 for 2.

Also, the OP says there are three numbers but 0, 2, 2 is still just two numbers - 0 and 2.

Thanks, not sure I've seen it either. Any ideas on what 022 would mean? I think it could unlock the poem. I'm going to analyze for other numbers in the poem now.

I consider 0, 2, and 2 all separate. But who really knows.

RE: Naught far but 2 far 2 walk.
Doing a quick search of this forum, I see discussion of 242 and 42 as far back as October 2013.

An example is this one by dreamcatcher on October 26, 2013:

"I believe NF,BTFTW is a distance indicator although I have toyed with chis Yates' not x but y. (I even found Far Canyon, but I think it was in Arizona.). I remember making treasure maps as a child and we always used "18 step to the left, the turn right 32 steps"... I think it came from bugs bunny. (In fact, it was my very first thought when I heard about this adventure last January) So, finding numbers to replace the words, I came up with Not far, but 242 walk. (Maybe supported by the "42" pound chest. ) So in my mind, the HOB is 242 steps (maybe yards) from WWWH, in the direction of the canyon down - whatever that means - maybe south on canyon st. "

John Brown responded to that post with more discussion of "42", which has been an extremely popular number to discuss in the search. It is also the meaning of "life", etc. in the popular Hitchhiker's Guide series by Douglas Adams.


A search of "242" lists more than 250 earlier threads of potential interest. This forum is missing many earlier posts, however, due to a software/host change, deletion of 3,000 of her own posts by admin (which resulted in deletion of hundreds or thousands more if the admin post was the lead/first post in a thread), and deletion of posts by other participants.
