    All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

By the way, my guess is that the LS will respect FF and the location enough to keep it a secret. Meanwhile, good luck to ALL searchers. I think the trove will be found this year, by the same
        person who found "the shadow man". Remember him? It's not a huge deal, but indicates the ability of someone to figure things out.
        Old Pilot,
        I believe the "shadow man" refers to the shadow picture on the cover of TFTW and the stick figure man on the cover of OUAW. I doubt that you'll tell us who found the shadow man, but maybe you'll tell us when the shadow man was found.

        • Someone has been closer in my opinion. I love that they haven’t said anything because it adds to the mystery and drives others crazy. Good for you, LS! You are up there in status with unicorns and Bigfoot!

            Well, who knows? I think the LS just needs to get a final pair of eyes on Forrest's vale. It has to be solved BOTG and must be imminently more complicated than the community realizes. I don't think the LS has it completely solved iether but Forrest is trying to handicap the race. Each time the LS makes some progress he posts something. In a way the LS has a Hobson's choice let him know of the progress and receive confirmation...but that information is subtly shared with the community. I think he/she sits home waiting for the coffee to confidently boil and the search "season" to begin.
            IMO If the LS or anyone else does make some progress Forrest may post something. If he does then in addition to a hint his post may also contain an anti-hint. For example if there's a hint to head north from a certain location there may also be a hint to head west. One of the directions leads closer to the treasure and the other leads to a rabbit hole.

                Closer since 2016 or closer than me? Because now you're scaring me.

                    • “If” you subscribe to the Lead Searcher theory, then you should know that they will be retrieving at the earliest window that they possibly can. Can you imagine sitting there all winter, KNOWING where to go, just waiting on your chance?And you better believe that they know that they were close and Whatever was missed, has been realized. It probably has driven them a little insane imo. Their revenge will be Forrest wearing his bracelet and the knowledge that the rest of us were the true slugs.

                            • Here is a picture of the shadow man. I don't claim to be the lead searcher, but I do claim to know the general area. I am stuck at the last few clues. Have been for 2 years. I don't post much, but I thought I would share this. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm not. The fun is in the pursuit! Would love to hear opinions.

                                I believe the "shadow man" was seen about 2 years ago. Using GE. Don't get me started talking about belt buckle(s).
