    What is the object of Canasta?

    The principal object of play is to form melds - combinations of three or more cards of the same rank - with or without the help of wild cards. (Sequences are not valid melds).

    What's a synonym of meld.

    Synonyms: go, conflate, amalgamate, mix in, blend, blend in, immingle, unify, compound, commix, intermix, flow, merge, combine, mix, commingle, flux, desegregate, aggregate, intermingle, unite, coalesce, mingle, integrate, ruffle, melt, liquify, fuse, immix, liquefy, shuffle.

    Forrest was telling you to stay home and blend words.

    In other words, he was saying to stay home and anagram.
    Forrest made the reference regarding the first clue... meld,to blend..maybe warm waters halt is the blending of waters.
    Canasta literally means the basket, or canister...maybe warm waters halt where they are "held"
    Maybe nailed down was a hint towards him feeling like an architect writing to poem.
    Or, canasta/rummy...he was hinting at Captain Kidd
    That's the big problem solving the poem,it can be made to fit any location we want it to.
    When doing anagrams,how do you decide which of the hundreds if not thousands of words created to use?
    The letters CONFIRMATIONBIAS is able to produce over 1600 english words alone, the whole poem is probably in the millions

    From my perspective, whoever went BOTG and didn't find the treasure had an incorrect solve. The correct solve should put the treasure right at your feet, no searching required. Or rather "the site formerly known as the treasure".

    If that's the case, then I'm not sure what if anything can be gleaned from it.

    I'm about as impressed with the anagrams as with interpretations of the "predictions" of Nostradamus, which seemed about as wise as nostrilmucus.

    I can see you imagining that as their OP is a confrontational post.

    CanadaKid,
    My computer skills are limited so I was not able to pull up your solve. What was your WWWH? From what I could see it appears that you are taking WWWH to be the second clue. I'm pretty sure Forrest told us that WWWH was the first clue.

    CanadaKid I wish you well in your quest, but I'm afraid you won't be able to get any kind of collaboration from the community. There's just too much disagreement about every single aspect of this hunt.
    I find your solve totally plausible and hope you find it.

    Best,

    Oh, ok, so you want to compile a list of failed search locations in Hope's of getting a general consensus that one of them is the correct place that chest was hidden at. Good luck with that.

    why dont you ask the person that gave you that location idea ?

    So why are we giving all of this power to the finder.? This is our chase. Let's take it back and solve the poem before he can capitalize any further. He is already rich.

    Let work together and defend Forrests honor by proving this was as simple as he said it was. He obviously cannot tell us the answer or I'm sure he would. We should be able to agree on the solution if we heard it.

    Many of you have spoke about us working together so could we try that?

    So I offer a solid starting point. A very literal solution curated from definitions and common sense. No stretching of anything. All clues easily married together on a map. I am not the finder but I have gone BOTG and might just be the solver.

    I believe the chest was in Lory State Park in Fort Collins, Colorado. It was beside a Shadowy Figure you can clearly see on Google Earth.

    40°34'46"N 105°12'00"W

    I have posted my full solve on Insta and tried to make it easily understood. I would hope our community and all of our 1000's of hours of research could add many more clues to this already solid solve . So again let's work together. We got this.

    Let's share this and bring it home. I, like you all, just want this to end.

    blineaheadpiwee? My solve has been cancelled/null/void. Goal is to have nine near, im sure it is contiguous in one spot. biwwwh= lgfi imagination I think its death, mummy cave in wy seems to be a big deal, indiana jones, done the digs (it) tired and weak, maybe the nimerigar little people are involved. Then page 133 the frog is on a quarter, never to be underestimated, the gold itself meticulously placed as the map of the secrete location, hint that it's on the map, blurred because it's not in NM. Back to death, dip your toe in it, maybe a reference to toe tag. He says lucky all the time, the frog totem, represents fertility, and 7's. Then 13, unlucky, you can always count on bad luck, The titanic sinks carrying the unsinkable molly brown, perhaps caused by the unlucky mummy. F wants to take it with him, to be more than an asterisk, then there's cryogenics like walt disney under the castle. Put in below the hob. A chest belongs in a castle, not a museum!!!

    So here me all and listen good your effort will be worth the cold (add ix) - Longitude thirty six, follow ash colored tree mallow beforehand
    If you are brave and in the wood I give you title to the gold - Latitude one o five eight, behold doorway intuit voyager.
    Yes
    No
    No
    No

    The last three do not work for the location.
