    If you want to post CRAP that keeps running through your unfocused spaghetti-filled minds, please create your own threads and quit contaminating the work of others.
    OK? How bout it: today's resolution----today is the day I grow up.
    As you skip over all of our spaghetti-filled contamination, just know that one man's 'crap' us another man's treasure in a way. You never know when a little rubber billy goat will appear!!

    Now to make this pertain to the thread...... topographical maps won't help to solve the poem IMO. GE works well enough for me.

    Who's to say it needs to be achieved...quantum entanglement, spooky action at a distance, double slits etc...I am not even here unless I am observed.

    I always ski the green slopes.
    That is MY color and besides they are so much safer and easier.
    I feel like a pro when I am going down the hill on the GREEN ones.
    Reminds me of a quote I heard somewhere.......

    THE MAP does indeed exist. Or should I say many versions of THE MAP exist. Several companies and the US Govt sell them on the web.
    THE MAP existed long before FF contracted cancer, survived it, and started planning his treasure hunt.
    I'm sure thousands of people own a copy of it, largely for reasons other than chasing treasure. Hunting for example---animals and artifacts.
    So the chase was hatched and F took out his chest of maps. He chose a safe location, then set about giving Alice in Wonderland names to the features he visited in years past.
    I've only had the one solution. The blaze was pretty stubborn but I hope to get to it this year.

    *Disclaimer alert! ***{everything following is just my opinion and can’t be proven because I don’t have a bronze chest in my possession}
    Clues within clues... absolutely 100%. The best trick Forrest has pulled is mastering the double entendres in the poem . He found a way for the clues to be straightforward , albeit vague , but at the same time-the dual meaning of certain words lead a searcher to the correct spot if solved correctly. When you reach a point in the search when you don’t know which direction to go or what landmark you should be looking for, try saying whatever line in the poem you are stuck at out loud. The poem is a map, but instead of topography, the words paint a picture of what you should be seeing IF you are in the correct location. It is brilliantly simple and incredibly complex at the same time.

    Bingo. There isn't one special, magical map. Many are perfectly adequate for the task. (Though the one at the back of TFTW is not one of them.)
