What did you learn from Forrest ?
Forrest was the Best teacher I ever had. He planted seeds and we chose how we would tend our garden. It started out with a story, the power of words that sent us all on our merry way down a path. We drove ourselves , all he did was say a few words and we decided what they meant. It stirred great debates and chains of thought in an attempt to be the first to figure it all out. Fun was to be had by one and all and all we had to do was to learn.

Thank you Forrest .
It is out there, somewhere .

RE: What did you learn from Forrest ?
I learned a lot from Forrest, but I think this was the most influential video:

FORREST FENN ON STUDY VS EXPERIENCE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlqHbKNy...e=youtu.be

I had to listen to it a couple times before I really started to understand his message.

Not to sound disrespectful, but I learned you can pretty much get away with anything if you lie well enough.

From Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice, 1596:

LAUNCELOT: Nay, indeed, if you had your eyes, you might fail of
the knowing me: it is a wise father that knows his
own child. Well, old man, I will tell you news of
your son: give me your blessing: truth will come
to light; murder cannot be hid long; a man's son
may, but at the length truth will out.

Can’t really get where Forrest was coming from with that response, but it always seemed that the difference between reality and perception was a significant part of this story.

Now which He was the authoritarian, his father or Shakespeare ?

I asked him if his family were campers. He said, “no, I never even spent one night at San Lazaro.”


Back to word origins again? The definition specifies one who lives in a tent for recreation. His family was not there for fun, they were working. Never spent one night.... at an Indian ruin with the dead people. I will think on that...



Seems to me that Forrest was an intellectual under the cover of his simple man/retired rancher persona. He always had some provocative angle to the conversation.

Remember the scrapbook about the masquerade? That followed one of our visits. It was exactly how we felt about it.

I like to tease my grandchildren with made-up stuff. My 7-year old granddaughter is starting to see right through me and counterattack with her own made-up stuff.

I think Forrest was a tease at heart, partly because his mind could think rings around most people he encountered. He was extremely intelligent, even without a college education. There are a lot of people out there like that.

It must have been really difficult for him to meet and talk with so many people, but avoid dropping his guard and accidentally give out an important hint or clue. He seems to have done it, even up to the age of 90!

If I had met him, I would have told him he had a mind like a steel trap -- old and rusty! Smile
(Shout out to my granddaughter and all the searchers who believed in Iron Spring Creek!)
What else is old and rusty? Santa Fe! (check your periodic table)

I learned what "hackles" are, ... & that mine are raised more often than I'd like to admit.
