    Pareidolia is the enemy of every searcher.

    I no longer have my copy of TTOTC. I left it at a search location in 2014. Forrest seems to use very subtle hints. If Bill can use that as a hint then good for him. I'm already privy to a secret fishing hole of way back when.

    OK, thanks for clarifying what you meant Apparently, you meant that a searcher on this forum postulated that the Denver Museum (parking lot) was the tenth clue. Just wanted to get that clarified.
    Neither Forrest, nor Doug Preston, ever claimed or stated that it was the 10th clue.

    No, This report does not use the wording 10th clue.

    So if you want to view it as postulating you are certainly welcome to. But this book foreword is seven years after the poem was released and Forrest has stated all along that there was 9 clues in the poem to be followed to get to the treasure. If you want to postulate that Doug is referring to clue 9 in the foreword than go right ahead as it is a further stretch than taking Doug's comment as being a tenth clue only reserved for when or if Forrest commits suicide. And BTW Forrest said nothing when Doug mentioned during an interview that Forrest "buried" the treasure.

    No actually, its not. I was talking about it being number 10 as opposed to number nine. And I'm not judging, just asking you to back that up since you presented it as probable truth. You could be right, but I don't think so. No need to be so defensive.

    Is that enough for you Judge ?

    I've been thinking worth the cold is saying the same thing

    I think we need to be careful here. The crucial line from the foreword is in a separate paragraph, "The final clue, he said, would be where they found his car: in the parking lot of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science." It is not necessarily connected to the prior or succeeding paragraphs in the way we automatically assume. Also, there is a "he" and a "his" and they are not necessarily the same person (i.e. Fenn). The whole thing is ambiguous (like everything else in this endeavor!). It may of course be all above board, but then again it may not.

    In addition, I think it would be unwise to think that the treasure is secreted anywhere near the museum, and so the "structure" objection becomes moot.
