"They're contiguous. I knew where I wanted to hide the treasure chest. So it was easy for me to put one foot down and then step on it to get to the next foot. "


Ok, we have used this to justify how the clues must be followed in order, but put that aside for a second. The master puzzle maker always embeds a subtle surprise within the intended message. Something much more important but almost invisible until it use becomes obvious en-route to discovery.

This statement has always bothered me. Mr. Fenn is fairly good at articulating his points, but this statement is explained very awkwardly (kind of what I am doing right now ;-) ). IF one looks at it the way he intended, it will make perfect sense.

I mentioned the solution to this hint in my book (but I did not use this example to justify it). What I found interesting was that after Dal read my book, he started a new blog section, discussing the treasure chest and its contents from this theory I proposed. I believe this was later supported by Mr. Fenn's "get back in the box" statement.

Can anyone else see the significance of this awkward contiguous statement?
Is the answer printed on the treasure chest full of gold coins?
"Fortunately, I talked a museum friend into selling me his beautiful cast bronze chest that had three-dimensional female figures on its four sides and on the lid. I know I paid way too much for it but once in a while something comes along that is so special as to discount all logical rules of value."~TOTTC

Is it coincidence that we have "coined" a new phrase, form where those "coins" are hidden...
Let’s coin a new phrase. You can’t have a “correct solve” unless you can knowingly go to within several steps of the treasure chest. Otherwise you have a “general solve.” What do you think? f [MW]

Where are your quotation marks around the Forrest's quote? I cannot tell where your comments end and his quote begins.
Please be aware of misquoting and inaccurate referencing.
