  • TS Eliot - Brave and In the Woods

    Did Forrest make "Brave and in the Wood" the last clue and use the quote from TS Eliot "We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.", as the hint to help searchers with the Blaze puzzle? The Blaze is not obvious and leads the searcher away from the chest. Only when properly deciphered can one now know the final resting place of the chest. Forrest said, "Whoever finds it is going to earn it". He also said, "It's not something someones gonna do on Spring Break or a Sunday afternoon picnic". I believe Forrest is implying the chest is not easy to locate, even after you find the Blaze and that once you do know the location of the chest, getting to it is not simple and will require a lot of effort. In fact, is that why Forrest says "I want sweaty bodies out there looking for my treasure". Forrest has said many times in many ways that "Victory will always justify the effort".

    In my opinion, Everyone misinterprets this quote. TS was an explorer. All that someone like him wants to do is go out and discover, all day, everyday. Ts wants to explore so much, that when the years have passed, and so much exploration, he would not recognize it. That's what explorers do.

      The LS will definitely have to earn it.

        It's actually "If you are brave and in the wood" if you are going to quote. I think I understand what you're implying but you shouldn't quote out of context.

            My opinion:
            "If you are brave and in the wood" - This line is useless if the previous line is not understood correctly and in the exact location of the "blaze".
            IMO Google Earth cannot help with these two lines, but the TTOTC book can.

                If you are brave and in the wood tells you what the blaze is. That is a freebie from my solve. I hope this helps someone out there.
                If you A re "BRA ve aN D in the wood"
                A brand in the wood.

                I might have said too much, ahh who really cares tho.

                  I found three blazes on GE, but when I got onsite- hot biscuits- I wasn’t prepared for that forth. Is hot bread in the book? I need to reread.
