    I thought about taking Parting of the Waters as the end point. Often people say they want their ashes to be scattered at the headwaters of a river, and Parting of the Waters is unique in that you have both the Atlantic and Pacific Creeks right there. The problem is that it's 20 miles from the nearest road in Moran WY and is only accessible by horseback or hiking. That's why I thought it might work better as WWWH. Maybe Atlantic Creek is the drainage to follow since it heads to the Gulf of Mexico.
    Yes, it is pretty remote. I found out about that place during the Chase. It's not too far from my search area. I wanted to go see it, but it's a bit of a hike. Maybe someday. I seem attracted to odd geographic places like that, ha ha. My search area has a triple divide (Colorado, Mississippi and Columbia River drainages), just south of there. It's a fun hike.

    The "Continental Divide" is a C of sorts ... a CD in fact. Hence the "listen good" remark.

    I think your plane is in a stall, old pilot - the Colorado
    and the Mississippi both empty into seas. As strange as it might be, gulfs and bays and straits can be seas.

    La Mar = The Sea in Spanish

    woah, for a "Redneck Girl" your waters sure run deep. I like the way you think RG. And Fenn did previously live somewhere in the Emerald Coast ... MeXico Beach, was it?
    Thanks Tyke.
    Atlantic Creek flows into the Yellowstone River. It's just under 20 miles as the crow flies from Parting of the Waters to Yellowstone Lake. That fits with NFBTFTW, but what is "Put in below the home of Brown"? The CC cabin is right there, but I think that's the one that Cynthia asked about.

    I do now. It's a very Forresty solution, imo. For what it's worth, my WWWH is the Continental Divide. For that, I assume warm waters are the seas. Some old books refer to seas, especially the Gulf of Mexico as "warm waters." I think pirates used the term. Then you have to use your imagination on a map and see rivers like the Mississippi branching out like a tree and halting at the CD, including Two Oceans Pass. The phrase "ever drawing" can also be taken to mean ever dividing or ever parting. All of this works with Two Oceans Pass as well.

    Did you see my post above about Parting of the Waters? It's near Two Ocean (Two Seas) Pass in Bridger Teton NF. The water splits into the Atlantic Creek drainage and the Pacific Creek drainage. I think it's conceivable that "parting waters" might mean "halting waters" but I can't get "warm" to fit in. If you follow the Pacific Creek (Pacific means peaceful) it's about 22 miles (NFBTFTW) to the confluence with the Snake River. There's a boat put-in at the confluence.

    How does cease mean seas? Did you just pick a word that sounds like it? Why not sees, or sease?

    And how does "to" become "two?:
