Forrest Said Solving Blaze Puts You How Close?
A couple of years ago, I vaguely remember Forrest answering a question about, if you have the right blaze it would put you within a certain amount of feet from the treasure. I believe something like eight feet.



Does anyone remember what he said or am I completely making this up and it never happened?

Imo when ff says the obvious "look quickly down" after you find the blaze, this indicates a large blaze... larger than 12' because of his comment you'd see it within that distance. My blaze is large, spectacular, and symbolic

Negatory on the if you had the blaze you would be a certain distance away from the chest. Forrest didn't say it. don't even need to search on that one, if Forrest had said anything like that, most everyone here would know and have mentioned it already a thousand times.



he did say one time that if someone was within 12 feet of the treasure chest they would likely find the treasure chest, or not likely to not find it, as it were.



im not sure how that comment would tell you anything about the size of the blaze, but i see Decall seems to think it does.



my blaze also happens to be very large. and it likes to smell things. animals, people, flowers, what not

I agree Chris, Forrest only said "if you were within 12' you probably could not miss it". Makes it seem clear to me it is open and obvious and not buried, (maybe hidden though). Not to mention currently "wet" seems to indicate to me it is in the open (covered with snow perhaps). I have a few blazes and like you and Decall mine is very large and symbolic. Not sure what you mean by smell things, another riddle-speak I guess?? I love this blog since most on here seem serious and deep thinking more than the other blogs.

If the poem were straight forward, then we should be able to (look quickly down and see the chest), meaning that the blaze can't be big. But then the poem can mean anything.

minotaur, I can't recall Forrest ever singling out any aspect of the Poem and stating that if it were identified you would be within a specified distance of the treasure..(but, WTH I'm getting older everyday!! Smile )....anyone else ever run across that???...deb?...Jason?...yates?...astree?...mdavis?...will1975?....anybody?
</div>
I can't recall Forrest saying anything about distance from the blaze to the chest but the closes thing was that he said if you was 12 feet that it wouldn't be possible not to find the chest ( paraphrasing )

He said if you were within 12 feet of the TC you'd see it.

I think Buddy may have it right. I don't think he said anything about a distance from the blaze.
