  • My Blaze...

    For many years now, I have hoped the blaze was something like this (minus maybe the Staff of Ra):

    Am I crazy?

      The Wolf wrote of this concept too, https://www.findingfenn.com/sample-chapter
      except he used Khonsu instead of Ra.
      "I took out the crystal skull, fixed it to The Staff of Khonsu, inserted it into the hole and twisted it until it locked in place. I checked my watch — 3:42 a.m. — and waited as the moonbeam entered through the large window- like opening in the cave wall. The crystal began to glow and shot a rainbow out the of Crystal of Thoth’s left eye at a 222 degree radial across the raised ledge onto the irrefutable blaze."

        Hahaha, fair enough!

        Apparently, that is my special spot and not Mr. Fenn’s. That said, make no mistake, that place is in such a whimsical place that even Alice from Wonderland would be jealous.

          Though I think @The Wolf is very intelligent and I liked debating with him on the message boards while he was around, though I didn’t read his book, my argument with a moon solve would be that I don’t think it’s possible that the sun doesn’t play some important roll to the correct solve with how often Mr. Fenn speaks about it.

          Just my opinion.

            I am relatively new so pardon my ignorance, but can you explain where this butt crack rock is? It sounds plausible, "but tarry ..." lol

              Back before he ruled out tunnels/caves, I imagined (without reason) that the clues would lead you into a tunnel, and that somewhere deep inside there'd be a hole in the ceiling that would let light through, and that maybe you had to dig around in the floor of the cave where the sun shown. Maybe less like the Map Room from Raiders and more like the trigger for the spikes that came out of the wall in the temple where the Fertility Idol was. I thought that'd be a cool way to hide it because if you weren't specifically looking for a "blaze" you wouldn't know to poke around in the floor there, and something like that isn't going change much over time unless the hole got plugged.

              Over time I came to believe that searchers got themselves off-track thinking up all the random things various words in the poem might represent and that most likely the blaze is more like a trail marker in the traditional sense. People think "blaze" and his quote of "anything that stands out" and just go nuts. Or they get stuck on things related to the sun or fire or other word associations. Out in the woods a blaze is a blaze. It's not a laser beam.

              Speaking of Indiana Jones, it's an off-hand line in the book where he invites "Indiana Jones types like me" to come find his treasure chest, but I don't think it's a throwaway line. He does identify with Indiana Jones. He's compared by others to him, but he also associates that moniker with himself.

              Most of the Indiana Jones movies came out in his formative "archaeology" days, late 70s through the 80s, when he was running around being Indiana Jones. Heck, Last Crusade was about Indy's relationship with his father, and came out just after Fenn lost his own father to cancer and was battling it himself. It literally came out in theaters the year Fenn says he came up with the idea to hide the treasure chest.

              I think whenever the treasure chest is found people might look back and see that the whole thing was styled very much like an Indiana Jones film.

                  I didn’t click on the link but from the staff of ra I’d have to imagine you’re talking about Indiana Jones?! Lol

                  the blaze is small and simple, has a little bit of tar on it either by design or to hold it in place... maybe that’s why it’s not feasible to move it?

                    What kinds of things do you believe Forrest has "given us to find"?
                    Have you found any or all of them?

                        False modesty; we all know you're hot on the trail; it's okay; you don't have to tell us what you found.

                          Your clever use of words is impressive (not necessarily favorably).

                              "Small" is relative. I think the blaze Fenn had in mind when he published the poem is longer than a Tesla (car, that is, not rocket or hyperloop).
