    I've heard him say he would tell Dal so he could announce. But not solely Dal's blog but also 3 major news outlets. So if your the winner, better be prepared for that !

      I had their show on earlier and mistakenly thought I heard Kpro say Forrest would announce here.

        Fenn has a relationship with NBC. They paid him to give a clue a week for 9 weeks I think it was.

          Don't care where he announces but care about which find he is referring to. There are three.

            There's only one "find" that searchers care about: the spot the chest lies ... or once laid if that time comes.

                kpro has routinely stated that Forrest would announce the find here on THOR, but she can answer on her own behalf of course.

                  And after Fenn passes away? Of course people will be demanding photos, but even those will not convince many. As far as photos, I would be very selective in when and what photos were released and to whom because all images of the chest would be my intellectual property, and I would closely protect my copyright.

                    There is the bronze box which is not at the end of the poem.
                    There is the treasure of gold at the end of the poem.
                    There is the story of the one who solved the poem.

                    The bronze box IMO will not be found as it is not in the wilderness and available.
                    The treasure at the end of the poem - chest was found, lid was raised, artifacts taken and gone in peace, but the taken may have been awkward.
                    The story is ff's take.

                    So wish one is the treasure/it that will be announced? He said do not discount the 'nouns'. It is the pronouns that are the problem. Treasure, chest, it - unless they accompany specifically a bronze box, they do not refer to the bronze box. It is a pronoun but each individual decides if the bronze box is the noun to which that it refers. The use of treasure and chest is like the pronoun, 'it'.

                    IMO until one suspends the bronze box, one will not figure out the riddle. This is one reason why Dal's bloggers are lost. It is forbidden to even assume that the bronze box is not at the end of the poem. If one entertains the idea and suspends the bronze box, it is considered calling ff a liar. That logic does not fit in with a riddle. There is a way that ff did not lie and yet the bronze box is not in the wilderness. It's a riddle - how can it be true and not true at the same time? Shrodinger's Cat - that is the riddle.

                    Basically, what is the 'it' that will be announced when it is found? 'Found' discovered or taken . . . Thus far 'it' as is announced is not the chest at the end of the poem nor is it the artifacts there. It is not the bronze box that is the fake fly or lure. That leaves the riddle found or ff has the rights to the solver's story.

                    A lot to think about I know. How can all of this be true and yet ff has not lied - as far as I can tell from the limited blogs and media I viewed.

                    Solve for Shrodinger's Cat - solve for the bronze box. If all you need is the poem and a map - think about it - how do you know you are searching for a bronze box? When you can answer that one, it would be of great interest because I don't see 'bronze box' in the poem or on any map available in the public. If the bronze box is at the end of the poem, does anyone have a proof from any media that ff specifically states, "The bronze box is at the end of the poem." and does not replace 'bronze box' with treasure or chest or it or bounty. The 'Sherif should have been the first one to have discovered this dilemma since law enforcement when taking a report does not accept pronouns and requires the name repeated throughout the report. IMO the bronze box is his finest false fly or lure.

                    This is IMO as it is not all confirmed. Does that help Pilot?

                      Agree. I wrote a comment somewhere on this blog that the map gave points and that each point involved an adventure. But I am not tech savvy and don't know which thread that was on. Personally I don't expect to find a bronze box filled with gold and jewels once I arrive and have not found such a bronze box.

                        That's all interesting but, it would seem to become irrelevant if one is focused only on finding the destination that the poem leads you to.
                        Forrest says the poem should be treated like a map, because it is.
                        Maps are for showing you how to reach destinations.
                        Even treasure maps take you from one point to the next until you eventually reach the final destination, which is classically indicated by the X on the map.
                        Only then, after reaching the indicated destination, does one begin to search for the treasure.

                        So to me, it doesn't really matter if the gold and jewels is in a bronze box, or a burlap sack, or several mason jars.
                        Knowing exactly what the boot is packaged in doesn't help me figure out how to get there.

                        The poem is not describing a bronze box, or a burlap sack, or several mason jars.
                        It is giving directions on how to get there.

                        Therefore, it doesn't matter that you know/don't know you are searching for a bronze box.
                        It matters only that you follow the directions given.
                        If you follow those directions precisely, you are going to arrive where you were instructed to go.
                        Bronze box or not.

                        Personally, I expect to find a bronze chest filled with gold and jewels once I arrive there.
                        But what is an X ?
                        An X is a + known as the Tau and has many meanings of which includes numbers

                        It all depends on "context".

                            Yes, the where is more important than the what.

                              During Irene Rawlings' lunch with Forrest in Santa Fe on Tuesday, July 13th, 2010 (give or take a day), Forrest tells her he has " ... hidden a treasure box -- a box full of gold -- and was just finishing up a memoir of clues and how to find it."

                              In Report from Santa Fe with Lorene Mills (May 13, 2011): "There are nine clues in that poem. If you can follow the clues to the chest, you can have it, and the poem says that." Later: "Well, in my book there’s a poem, like I said. And there are nine clues in the poem. And the clues are in consecutive order. If you can read that – if you want to find the treasure chest, you have my book there, I’ll tell you how to do it. Read the book just normally: the poem, and the rest of the book. And then go back and read the poem 6, 8, 10 times. Study every line, every word. Then after you do that, read the book again slowly with the idea of looking for clues or hints that are in the book that will help you follow the clues. You can find the chest with just the clues, but there are hints in the book that will help you with the clues.”

                              In Mysterious Writings Six Questions from 2013, last part of Forrest's answer to Question 4: "One thing is certain, when a person discovers that beautiful bronze chest and opens it for the first time and sees the bracelet with hundreds of rubies, emeralds, sapphires and diamonds, and the 265 gold coins and hundreds of placer nuggets, he will be in awe. It is easy for me to predict the expression on his their (sic) face."

                              I could post dozens more quotes from over the years that are consistent with these examples, but to me it's pretty clear that the treasure is not separate from the bronze chest -- it's within it. And since the clues lead you to the location of the chest, the clues lead you to the treasure.
