    So, if you were to reveal said location what would that do to the prestine environment the treasure lays in, with thousands of people trampling around.
    Do you have the link to a quote that Forrest made such a request ?

        THE Location --

        Finn said TC aint associated with "any structure"
        He said to LISTEN to his poem
        an he said tuh LISTEN GOOD
        Cause ... The End is DRAWLing Nigh --
        Hear me DRAWLLL an Listen Good
        Think Texas DRAWLLLLLL
        an "any structure" = N.E. STRICTURE
        what a 'stricture'?
        a TIGHT SPOT.
        whas the dictionary definition of a 'stricture'?
        a spot that DRAWS tight.

        Keyword?

        DRAW!

        Not Straws, not Pictures,

        Thank STRICTURES!

        Whas a Stricture?

        A TOMB. A SEPULCHER -- both words ff has said he *mighta put TC in.

        Finn's spoken Texas DRAWLLLL holds uh AUDITORY KEY (Hear me drAWLLLL an listen GOOD)

        Finn's use uh the word ... DRAWL holds thuh DENOTATIVE KEY --
        DRAW = STRICTURE = A TIGHT SPOT = NO PLACE 4 MEEK = NO PADDLE UP UR CREEK (when u there)

        an thas why Finn had tuh went in ALONE --
        cause it's uh TIGHT SPOT

        an thas why Finn says -- Git IN, git IT, an get the heck OUT!

        He ENTOMBED thuh thang an he don wan u tuh get STUCK

        thas why u gotta be BRAVE tuh go fetch it.

        Think FETCHIN.

        An thas why there's a blood spot in the left eye -- cause it'll SQUEEZE YA till yer eyes pop

        he give us uh DRAWIN bout the FETCHIN tuh illustrate that point.

        an whuht is DRAWIN thru a TIGHT SPOT an comin out the other side a METAPHOR fur?!!

        Livin thuh GOOD LIFE, which is whut Finn wants for ALL his Chase Chillins (worth the COLD)
        (also the COLD uh facin death)

        How is DRAWIN thru a TIGHT SPOT a METAPHOR for the GOOD LIFE --

        What the Bible say the PATHWAY to HEAVEN is like?

        DRAWIN uh CAMEL through the EYE of uh NEEDLE!

        Finn say LOGIC gonna help ya.

        WHY?

        LOGIC = LOG I C = LOG EYE SEE ...

        Cause tuh live the GOOD LIFE, its all bout making the LOG U SEE be the one in yer OWN EYE
        an not thatn uh yer BROTHER.

        The LOG I. C. is MY OWN. EYE ALONE.

        I aint cass no judgment awn my BROTHER.

        Judge not less ye get it right back atcha.

        Lookin on yet Brother with Judgment is the SIN that'll cause a STRICTURE in yer own eye
        soins u blinded tuh Truth Love, all the GOOD STUFF. Yer Eye get DRAWN SHUT TIGHT
        when u look at world thru JUDGMENT EYE, so ye gotta cass that OUT tuh truly see what GOOD.

        Think: DRAW. Thinnk TIGHT SPOT. Think STRICTURE. Thank GOOD LIFE. Thank EYE.
        Eye uh God always watchin, EYE uh NEEDLE is whut ya gotta DRAW thru tuh get there
        an break awn thru to thuh other side.

                I think if the finder has spent enough time thinking about this so as to actually, you know, find the thing...they won’t be able to complete the after tasks alone. They will have to observe strangers and pick a winner to trust and for assistance. (Or a few.)
                It would be cool if there was a way to 100% verify you got the correct end spot after the tc is removed to give peace of mind to those that still want to know. But to each that went to this spot and knew they solved it- that they were standing where the tc was found- each would also have the choice to make it public or knot. Eventually Someone wood. Maybe the verification should be hidden too(?) Some secret that takes a lifetime to master and a wily windy whisper to communicate(?)
                I did find a funny rehide spot near my own search area (...seriously rotflwwabs funny...) I’d consider a parallel adventure but have nowhere Near F’s marketing skills. Probably 100 people would read about it and 2 would think about the 1800 mile drive and say, nah,,,

                edit- also realized it wasn’t clear, but I don’t believe you can Not remain anonymous (within the previously mentioned trusted strangers) and keep the spot a complete secret. The two are intertwined. Otherwise, you’re always going to be looking for the suicide door van that swoops you up from a daylight street like an owl a mouse in the night. Or not. Would someone swoop ya just for a secret F tc location when it’s no longer there even?
                Take me to prison. I ain’t talk’n. What tc?
                I agree Rose, at first it may be wise for the finder to remain anonymous, but eventually, it would also be wise for the finder to come forward. Maybe after the book is written?
                If the finder were to, as you say, "search for a stranger" that would be one lucky person to have this dropped on their lap. The finder had better have a good understanding of people before and select someone that would be trustworthy.

                Money, is not everything. But it helps.

                  Not even close to being the same as finder making public the treasure location. Best method thru a book.

                    Why not ? How can you say that with certainty ?
                    Does it not seem a bit odd to you, the placement of that statement ?

                    "There are also other subtle clues sprinkled in the stories. It was vital that nobody share my knowledge about the location of the treasure."

                    How does "clues sprinkled in the stories" have anything to do with nobody sharing his knowledge about the location ? Unless, there are clues in the stories that answer this question ?

                    I can argue this comment from both sides, like most everything else F says.
                    I'm just curious as to your thoughts on why that sentence follows the preceding one.
                    If there is no connection between the two, doesn't it seem such an odd thing to say, at that point ?

                      The word "was" tells the meaning as being past tense or of people from the past. Would you like the names of the people that know the "general search location" ? Everyone would. That's why.

                        I'm sorry, but you just do not understand.
                        The location is sacred to at least one person, that is all that matters in my book. To have thousands of people trample this location would be an abomination to me.
                        For this reason alone, I would never reveal the exact location should I be so fortunate.

If I’m right about the location I’ll never tell anyone, period. (Ps. I’m 99.9 % right! Cock a doodle dooooooo! Lol)
                          What's the big deal about where you found it? Are you afraid of taxes? I can see remaining anonymous for obvious reasons, but what's the big deal about the location? Are you concerned with legalities, or you just want to be mean and deny everyone else resolution?

                            That is before the chest is found. Of course, he didn't want to blab about its location before the poem was solved. Good luck finding the chest. Your reasoning seems a little off to me.

I think it would be very difficult to know where it was but not able to travel there and retrieve it for any number of reasons. Thereby there could be a second place, a third and so on. We all have worked hard to crack this nut and there just shouldn't be one winner. Then I would want Forrest to publish one more book with the clues and interpretation of the poem and the back story. I believe it is a remarkable story, fascinating, illustrating Forrest's love of knowledge and for his fellow man.

                              Finding the box and keeping the solution a secret should be a crime, and possibly a capital offense if I was the law. Hang um high!

                              I agree, a finder who wouldn't share the location seems to be a very selfish, uncaring person in regard to other searchers getting resolution. I don't understand their reasoning. Perhaps someone can explain more fully? Do they think it is Forrest's wish that the site not be revealed? Then why would he choose that location in the first place. I think he actually wants the spot to get recognition. The people who don't want to reveal the location ever, can you please explain more fully? Are you more interested in self protection or spot protection, for instance?
