    DP's foreword to OUAW doesn't mention how many stanzas were in the poem when Forrest read it to him.

    Speculation, I thought I had read that it was originally 4 stanzas, and Forrest had added to it, I guess i am mistaken, my bad.

      Hello Sister, it’s not an anagram. It’s right there in black and white in the first line of stanza four. If you’ve been wise and found the blaze. The ‘wisemen’ were following a star to Bethlehem. So if you are ‘wise’ you are searching for a star.

        Now there are already two „rules“ made up by searchers I find irritating because they simply do not exist as rules to the game! Please try to convince me or prove that the following statements are true and can stand as rules to the game:

        1. The blaze (and probably all other sites referring to clues) has to be durable to exist for 100 or 1000 years.
        2. The blaze can‘t be manmade.

        I will not be convinced by „just logical thinking“... I want rockhard proof, please!

He showed the original first four stanzas to Doug Preston, and Doug’s concern was that it would only take a few weeks to figure out. So Forrest went back to the drawing board and added two stanzas. I guess the question is how durable does a blaze have to be if you think it will only take a few years to figure out?
          Anna-- I think the statement, "it hasn't been found" is incorrect. I believe Mr. Fenn KNOWS it has been found. Yes, I'm positive, he knows.

              I believe it’s still out there. Fenn is a man of his word and has promised to notify THOR and the major media outlets when it has been found.

                That quote you are referring to was made in reference to finding the chest. I thought that you were referring to the blaze.

                  Oh in that case I agree the blaze has been found

                    Thanks Anna... You just made things click.... I have avoided a spot at my solve because I felt that ff could not have put it there... My flaw is that I have always thought of it as a marvel gaze and it is too difficult for an 80 year old man to climb to.... As a blaze.... the chest would be quickly down or below that spot... and there are 2 cold ones on top! And oddly it looks like a J

                      You‘re right MD! But sometimes it sounds like I have to live up to others‘ rules... the durability thing should definitely be taken with a grain of salt... don‘t you think?

                        I agree, up to a point. The wise men had 'seen the light'.
                        However, I don't believe it means we are searching for a star.

                          In German we say something like „The wise man walks with a crooked back“....
