    Thank you for providing that K.

    A few things about this statement caught my attention. First, when I first heard it, it felt like a last scrapbook that was never released. The writing and the story just seemed like it should have been called SB 254. Second, the tone seemed strange, especially to a group of people gathering to celebrate and say goodbye to The Chase more or less. It was like he was trying to tell us something but not directly, the story really had nothing do with the end of The Chase.

    I've got more thoughts on the statement but I want to hear what others have to say. What do you guys think?

        Maybe we should let Fenn's last words to us RIP and enjoy them without trying to decode them. I know the temptation is strong, but it's a recollection of his. Sometimes I think he was was just telling stories. They usually make me chuckle. He got better with age, making the smallest incidents an enjoyable tale.

          Wetting down things and on (or in) things seems to be a topic I have seen referenced in several of Forrest's writings.
          But he is in heaven now and it is a pissing shame that I never got to meet the man.
          We would have talked for hours.....
          KPro - I do believe he left you and all the others who were there to celebrate the ending, some words of wisdom - Fenn style.

            Rain/borders, water on boundary. Yup, that's the Forrest I remember, throwing hints until the end, lol.

              I agree. The story about him wanting to pour warm water over the roots of the tree where his mother passed, watering his trees after Edard passed, now this one about wetting down the dirt road. It seems to be a reoccurring theme in his last writings.

                    Last words to us, I think, unless I'm mistaken.

                      lowkey I agree with you. It does read like a scrapbook, and fun fact: Ellert Kosky was mentioned in SB 253. Maybe we missed something important in that last one? Anyhoo... my interpretation in his words are this - maybe we should all have a little patience and wait for the dust to settle. I’m sure things will be much more clear.

                        Was his message 'wait for the dust to settle?' It's a nice story to send his keenest fans, a scrapbook just for them.

                          Forrest brought out the happiness in me. The chase was fun....and probably the best game I ever played. He said you gotta get in your car and go...I’m willing to do it now.

                            Yes, I believe so. That’s why he asked those at the finale to help wet down the ground, to help the dust settle. There will always be an “Ellert” that likes to stir it back up though. ( Sorry Ellert, RIP sir) it was just an example.

                              Forrest seemed proud of some of his "mischief". How do you know he is in heaven?
