    The West Thumb was created by a massive volcano,
    I figured he was talking about millions of people disappearing from a big blast. It happened once before, 60 million years is an awful short time in the life of a rock...

      Quite possibly, Forrest wasn't telling the whole story. Maybe his plane went down somewhere and the only way he could get back home was to thumb a ride from some passing filly with a hot car. I'll bet she had a Ferrari harnessing a horse emblem on the hood and rocket boosters in the back. Forrest always did like to fly.

            I'll bet that Philly was so bright, it threw Forrest for a loop and he knocked off half of the lady's sunglasses. Still. I'm thinking she was classy enough to keep her lipstick intact.

                Billy Joel sang about it. Some liked living in Allentown.

                  Way too many coincidences to think that Waldo isn't in there somewhere.

                      From the Mistake-by-the-Lake (Cleveland rocks!), take interstate 8 zero east until it intersects the Hershey Highway. Continue sliding deep east until you arrive at your destination: Wyomissing. No sh!t... its tucked in and surrounded by Intercourse, Schwartzville, Hockersville, Blue Ball, Reamstown, Fritztown, and Plowville. Yes, these are actual places. Kissin' kissin', Hershey kissin'... take a ride to Wyomissin'. I'll pass

                        What is the astronauts name that put up his thumb? Jim Lovell. Now look for a town in the Rocky Mountains with the name Lovell. You will be in Wyoming.
                        A good forger attempts to deceive the naked human eye.
                        It's part of the challenge in the game he plays.

                        Deceiving science in expert hands is however, practically impossible!"

                          OH!!

                          To add another crazy thing, OH! posted a thread about the pic of the chest with the metadata that read 1887. That was the year of the first Groundhog Day, and yes, it began in Punxsutawney, Pa.

                            Forrest was using his left hand, he had been moving it in and out, and then he moved his thumb (left hand) close to his left eye and blocked out Philadelphia.
                            Philadelphia is home of the first US mint, and we're after a "mint" in the chase.
                            Then he removed his glove to check to see if his fingers were turning purple. That's another hint, I think.

                            Don't read this if you're tired of my solve.
                            I pointed out that below Brown's Grave is the pond that looks like a hand holding up a thumb.
                            Forrest had another hint to this in the nickel he wanted to push in the dirt under the pineapple pie lady's grave.
                            My treasure spot is below Brown's Grave.
                            As far as the color purple goes, I have the line from Huckleberry Fire Lookout to another spot that goes through Brown Meadows, the HOB, and near Brown's Grave.
                            And another line from Huckleberry Fire Lookout, right through the Thumb (pond), through a spot that looks like a thumb print, and to Glover Peak. (More verification.)
                            And ripe huckleberries are purple.
