    If all you had to do was find a waterfall you could skip the whole damn poem and go to every last waterfall in the four states. There is no waterfall Anna. Not a natural one anyway.

      Verb tenses tell readers when events or actions occurred in time—in the past, present, or future. Your verb choices can also indicate aspect, which expresses the completeness or effects of an action.
      Are you kidding? You're dismissing my statement based on the tense of the following sentence? At the beginning of TTOTC, Forrest, says he makes up words. In scrapbook 73, Forrest makes the argument for ending a sentence with a preposition. Since when did Forrest, pay any attention to the rules of grammar? You of all people, (if you believe that the solution is an anagram), should know that Forrest was hamstrung by the words of the original poem.

        That's an idea, look for pictures of every waterfall in the four states. "There is no waterfall Anna. Not a natural one anyway." Never say never, are you sure you want to stand by that statement. What was it that Forrest said on August 9th, 2016 in surprise words at Mysterious Writings.

          there was the. -why is everybody caught up on waterfalls. i took that as no waterfall. I don't remember what the Thunder-rose stuff was about. But i remember it caused a stir. And what is the thing Forrest did hundreds of times tired. But is know to weak to do? Pull out his own plane and fly it long distances. How does aviation angle mesh with the poem locations. I have no idea? When i asked where were the 2 spots Ff crash landed in the Rockies Complete Silence. ( suprising he's only metioned it once) What was one ff's favirite thkngs to do. Jump in his plane and go to small little towns. And what's to stop him from just throwing his bike into the high water Physics. He can't. That's the sarcasm of it. If it was going up a actual creek with boulders.. To Dangerous. As vast of streams, creeks ,& rivers. in my opinion.

            I agree that the sudden change in very tense seems to be an aberration (and thus potential cookie crumb)

            Didn't Mr. Fenn own a FOUNDRY?

            Isn't this a type of Blaze?

            You're right about that! I think I might go cool off in the rain before I start to change colors.

              Dismissing? I was merely asking a question. But since you've brought it up, the sentence is a double past tense sentence, so it was obviously created that way. Unless you think he ignored both of them, then I would dismiss your answer to my question. But it appears I will get an offensive answer no matter what?
              Sorry to come across as offensive. Like I said, he didn't pay attention to the rules of grammar. So while you would expect the answer to a sentence in past tense form to be found in the preceding lines, you wont find the answers beforehand.

                If you read through My War For Me you find several story lines that have been torn apart and then put back together in a haphazard style. I was trying to set down the story of the flight when he was shot down and found that he would bounce forward in time and back as well as bounce from one story theme to another. What I took from it was that the poem is not in order at all. What I hadn't thought about until just now is that maybe if we figure out the the exact order of each story in My War For Me and then apply the pattern to the poem maybe the re-organized sentences would describe the real path to the treasure. I think I'll check into it, and as an added thought, maybe there are 1 or more stories in the poem and this will organize them properly. Just thinking out loud.

                    Good luck with that, Anna. There is subterfuge. It was created/invented/developed decades ago. Geez.

                    Oh, I almost forgot to say "good luck" to y'all. Good luck.

                          In some regard the former could be the latter thing.

                              There's much wisdom in you, Anna.

                              We could all benefit from just sitting and staring at this statement for 3 days straight and thinking. (I love statements this is true of -- not a whole heap of them out there, but this is one. I know another about "Questions." Every time I peer into it, i see deeper ...)

                                I would say somtime around 1989 the development really came to light.
