    Leave my bones. Could be directional... just as go in peace could be. Making it the 6th or 7th clue.
    I've done it tired- clue 8. That seems like the easiest one.

          "My Bones" has special meaning that is derived from "making one's bones"

          So my response is related, you just was blind to it.
          Forrest would know these terms for sure.
          so take my bit of soul, and leave the ones i wronged. Side Note, my dad got a job with jimmy and was all excited and shared the news with grandpa who hit pop in the head with a baseball bat.

            Some people really don't like the military.

Some of those bones are a thousand years old.

              I'm not trying to nitpick. I just think it's fascinating how we deal with the inheritance of our ancestors' remains.
              San Francisco did the same thing in 1900-1912. They moved them to Colma California, just south of San Fran. The official motto of Colma is :
              "It's great to be alive in Colma." Being that the dead outnumber the living by about 1,000 to 1, I believe this is a very fitting motto.

                      My best guess is it's either if you've been wise and found the blaze or worth the cold?

                        There is a whole stanza "before" the first clue, therefore it seems logical to me that something ended before we "begin".

                        "I don't know that anybody has...has.......has told me the..the clues...in the right order" ff - The Lure

                        "....you should start with the first clue and follow the others consecutively to the treasure. Hints in the book are not that organized." f (2014)

                        To the best of my knowledge, FF has never said the clues in the poem are arranged/written in consecutive order in the poem, only that they should be followed consecutively (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9)......

                          The clues are consecutive! Most people think they’re the 9 lines starting with Wwwh. Some think they’re the 9 sentences, but I’ll tell you what they really are!

                          9 but tarry scant with marvel gaze, just take the chest and go in peace.

                          and I’m 100% tarry scant is the last clue. 100%.

                            I follow your thought process, but it just doesn't work for my understanding of the poem. I'm not exactly sure I ascribe to the 9 sentences = 9 clues, or to any other clue order scenario, other than the clues are consecutive. IMO the blaze should be found in the on the map after "the end drawing" and before "no paddle" simply due to the fact it is written in past tense, and that is where I find it on my own map. I know that doesn't make me correct, and more than once I have switched sides after thinking about things other people have said. I'd like to have that level of certainty that you do about the end, but I've looked at the poem and have been botg enough to know that is hard to come by (for me).

                              I don't know if there's anything I'm 100% sure of, especially when it comes to the Chase. I'm not saying I think you're wrong. In fact it does seem reasonable that BTSWMG, JTTCAGIP could be the 9th clue. I'm just wondering what makes you so sure that it is.

                                I understand tarry, but what do you consider ‘scant’?
                                a. Lacking time for adequate observation/ inefficient
                                b. Lacking matter for adequate observation/ inefficient
                                Rose,
                                I am a firm believer that the last clue is "tarry scant with marvel gaze".... At sunrise when it is still dark and the sun crests above the horizon, the sun causes a light reflection that can only be seen in the morning and only during the summer months due to its more northerly ascent... I know of this place at my solve! It saddens me that I cannot walk without a peg leg and cannot go back!
