  • Quit the chase - do it with class......

    I had gotten a good friend (who will remain nameless) these books while he was a searcher. I received this today, returned and a discussion that he is over the chase. Officially. He asked me to keep him posted if I ever see any new information that might break this chase loose, but he is ready to move on. I want to thank him for going out with some class. He is frustrated but not going to be a punk about not finding it. He wished me luck and got some updates on my thoughts on this crazy adventure. Kind of a sad I guess. He is officially out of the chase. I tip my hat to you today my friend.

        I think we will see an increased number of searchers leave the chase during the rest of this season...

        Most of those self-proclaimed Lead Searchers and poem-solvers and overconfident wannabe-retrievers will be gone as well!

        If there‘s a Lead Searcher he/she worked on the last Clues for months now... obviously without success....

        So it does not seem to get progressively easier right? I can imagine this to be very frustrating as well!

        So here‘s to all those stubborn searchers, who will work on this thing til the end!!!

          Focus on the journey, not the destination.

              If it is found in our lifetimes, I suspect we will all remember this time of limbo fondly. Those who are overly focused on the end may come to regret not enjoying the thrill, a time when anything was possible.

                KPRO----Is your friend a college student? I ask because, with the appearance of the books you have pictured, it doesn't look as if the books have ever been opened. To excel at anything I believe you have to at least study the material. I predict, the books of the one who finds the chest will be marked up, well worn and falling apart.

                  No, not in college anymore. He actually went through and highlighted misspellings and aberrations, so I am finding a value in them. Some I don’t recall seeing before.

                  You should see Mike’s TTOTC, the pages are taped back together. And that was his second, the first one is no longer in existence.

                  We all have our journey!

                    Don’t think so, this is the second year with no BOTG, but he kept following the chase, now....... this is the final step. Maybe though.

                      Limbo. Good one.

                      By the way, I'm not particularly anti-"groove", myself.

                          Nature marches on. I wonder if even Mr. Fenn could find his chest now. Perhaps the spot has been found, but overgrowth or rock tumbles have covered it up.

                              I believe Mr. Fenn chose a place that's relatively stable re: rock tumbles, plant growth, human encroachment, and the like.
