  • So I go to the middle of nowhere based on my solve...

    And there's a scrape mark that looks like a deep, double-width bootheel mark around a 5x7 foot area, 12 feet from the gps spot I had.
    but you are not allowed to dig in the park... no, I really mean remote.

    And there's a view. In fact, about 20 feet away, a thousand foot drop. Mountains around. Pinyon, sage, juniper. A little, twisty, dry juniper at the head of the box.
    I can go back soon, but this is going to bother me awhile.

      It could have been a ten year old mark, too. No litter around.

              Do you live in the area or is this your annual BOTG?

                Sounds like you are deliberating whether to dig. Please do not dig in a national park. You don’t have to dig it up with a shovel. It is HIDDEN, but it is not buried in the dirt. That wouldn’t be any fun, IMO.

                Thanks, and good luck. Also, watch out for grizzly bears.

                    Actually you can dig in National Parks.

                    https://www.nps.gov/glac/blogs/poop-out-side.htm

                    " So how do you properly poo in the outdoors? For starters, step at least 100 feet off the trail, closer to 200 feet would be ideal. Make sure that you’re at least 200 feet from a water source – more on that in a moment. Dig a cathole 6 – 8 inches deep when going number 2 and bury your poop, but NOT your toilet paper. You should put that bloom in a plastic baggie and pack it out with you. Not sure what a cathole is? Think of any kitty you’ve known. Cats dig a hole before they go and then bury it. This is exactly what you’re doing, but since you don’t have claws and tough foot pads, I would suggest a small trowel. "

                    Is there any helpful info there ?

                    Begin at WWWH and go 200 ft
                    Gotta put "it" in below the home of Brown
                    Then it's no place for the meek (packing up the TP)
                    Just heavy loads and water high (Then fill it in)
                    If you are wise and found the blaze (cat hole)

                      Wow. WOW. Brilliant way to look at that.

                            Quite far from home.

                              I did not know that; that’s neat stuff, and yes, that IS very helpful information. The procedure, correlated with the clues, is a great memory aid. There seems to be no end to the unexpected bi-products of being involved in the chase. Thank you for that.
