  • Ramblings of a Grizz...

    wondering...

    I wonder what was going through Forrest’s head when he hid the treasure? It must have been so exciting to know he was about to do something totally audacious and launch a thousand wishful dreams. What he did was crazy when you really think about it. Leaving such a treasure out there for a clever but complete stranger to find . I can see him driving to his special spot, Indulgence riding shotgun , Forrest grinning ear to ear. I wonder if he had on all of his fishing gear, waders, tackle box and fly rod to fool any onlookers ? Don’t mind me folks. Just another fly fisherman headed out with my pimento sandwich , Fritos and a million on the passenger seat. No one would have given him a second glance out there. I wonder how he felt after carefully planning all of those years , then making it finally happen . Taking a last look at his treasure in the spot he had always considered his alone and closing the lid must have been quite emotional for him. I wonder the memories those mountains, pines and rivers held for him in that moment. Some places are special like that and you can hear the voices of the past echo around you if you listen with the right ears. Did he hear them then?

    This was not just a story about hiding a treasure box . It was his life...and an amazing one at that. He really was one sly fox , but he was much more than that.

    One thing is for certain: There will never be another Forrest Burke Fenn.

    Nice rambling Grizzbait. He was, one of a kind, and the story will likely be a legend as time goes by.

      If you think time will end before someone else exists named Forrest Burke Fenn, I suggest you think again, differently. And use a dictionary to learn what words in the poem can be used as nouns.
      Almost every word in the poem is noun imo
      They are all surnames and there meanings is the key imo

        Could be...I am hoping Jack keeps his word and lets us know when the treasure is sold and hopefully provides some video of the chest. I think that would convince me to move onto other adventures. Okay, I have moved onto little adventures, but this will haunt me until then. I am looking for a new challenge to occupy my time.

            Grizzbait Hi
            you are right it’s not just a story about a bronze box full of gold it’s his life story and it’s in the mountain how else was it going to last a 100 or 1000 years Forrest said you can get close to it you had a general solution and if you’ve figure it out you can walk with in a few steps of where the bronze box was, the Blaze is still there ,that’s gets you to the few steps and the nook just below the Blaze I know I’ve been there and seen it from the beginning to the End and the double Omegas are close by too. Forrest’s life story fits right down to the Omegas at the End if you can figure that. Clint

              Or Bigfoot. Don't get me wrong, but I love that stuff. I know all the Bigfoot hoopla is fake, but it does fascinate a heck of a lot of people and often captivates my own imagination. I wish it were all true, but the realist in me knows better. Just a bunch of con artists, pranksters and tricksters. I mean really, so a couple of guys head into the Northwest woods hoping to find a bigfoot, and lo and behold they get lucky on that very expedition and happen to have a video camera in hand ready to film: Yeah, right,

              So, this lends itself to a thought experiment. Forrest was a bright guy and quite shrewd. If his story was truly all on the up and up, and as the whole story now stands, would he have not been able to project the most likely outcome of his enduring legacy? Which like all the other fictional mysteries spells F.R.A.U.D.

              One would think he would have had the foresight to lay some kind of groundwork that assures everyone the story is true, and that he was an honest man. Even if just for the integrity of the family and the Fenn name.

                I don’t think he batted an eye or shed a tear when he closed that lid

                  Legend, perhaps; It's already gotten quite distorted. For example, people believe that Fenn thought of everything. They also believe that the hidey spot was within a mile of 9MH.
                  Yes, perhaps Fenn himself is deserving of legendary status. I hope his name gets cleared of suspicion and accusations of wrongdoing related to the treasure hunt . . . the sooner, the better.
                  How soon, how’s that going to make anything better
