  • Analysis of Cynthia and Crew's Cache

    After Cynthia's show the other night about the mysterious cipher poem this picture of the cache was provided at the end of the video. I screenshot it and have been studying for a few hours.

    Initial observations
    1. There is one forgery of the bracelet (1)
    2. Silver Searcher Coin #24 (1 or 24)
    3. 14 Jacks (14)
    4. 1 Rooster Coin (1)
    5. A pottery Shard (1)
    6. Six bottle caps (6)
    7. 2 keys (2)
    8. 1 lure (bass fly) (1)
    9. 1 miniature chest (1)
    10. 4 stones (looks to be quartz, yellow jade, jasper and not sure about the gray one) (4)
    11. Leather bag (1)
    12. Letter (1)
    13. picture of Kachina doll (1)

    Did Forrest put this collection together? Why coin 24? Why 14 jacks? Is he poking fun at someone with the Rooster coin? What are the keys to? Does anyone know what types of stones are in the picture? If one stone is a Jasper is it a clue for Casper? Are these clues to the treasure's solve location? Is there a bigger meaning to these numbers? Why did Amy receive this email? Am I reading too much into the photo and items in the cache? Ironically, all the numbers of this cache, 1,2,6,14,24 are all divisible by 2... aside from 1.

    I see mostly random items but without more details, that's all it looks to me is random items Forrest may have thrown together. But still, I can't help but wonder if there is a hidden meaning to the poem and the cache contents.

    The Poem is very bizarre! Did Forrest write this? Are we for sure?

      This in combination with the "Death Theory" posting makes me think there is much more to this poem.

          Item #8, the fishing fly. Forrest calls it a Bass Fly, but for Largemouth Bass I always thought that fishermen used lures not flies.
          I don't know much about fishing, so maybe someone with fishing knowledge can speak to that.
          I googled Bass fishing and got back mostly info on lures, not flies.

          Also, this video cover photo has what looks to be the same fly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHEMJpQ8HsE
          Maybe kpro , can ask Mike Cow if there was a caption (if any) from where he got this photo.

            You can fly fish for bass - both small and largemouth bass rise to dead-drifted dry flies, much like trout. On rivers and lakes where there are mayflies, caddis, and other aquatic insects, bass seek out drifting adult insects and sip them from the surface. You can use the same flies and the same presentation strategies as you would dry-fly fishing for trout. The biggest difference between bass and trout feeding habits is that trout often rise to extremely small food items. Mature bass tend to ignore small aquatic insects like midges and small mayflies.
            To be right for someone, you have to be willing to be wrong for someone else.

                Maybe someone who knows Morse code can see if there is a hidden message in the direction of the jack layout.

                  hmmm spitballing here...
                  2 keys for 2 treasures you need for each clue
                  6 caps = 6 openings.. 6 is the interval
                  Removed a bunch of jacks nonsense for the totally correct 14 jacks interpretation.
                  14 jumps are
                  Quirt, Procedure Turn, Quirt, DNW, DNW Holding Pattern, DNW Glacier, 1-8 Schumann resonances. Pretty self evident. sniff
                  I guess the elf chest is for the bell ring from the 8th ELF wave.
                  Confirmation bias is a helluva drug!

                    I have a question about that pair of coins, if anyone is able to help - the silver one appears to perhaps be one of a run of 50 that I think I understand was created by Cowlazars, but that there was also some contention around, so possibly there was only the one run? Am I correct in that, or were there additional runs after the first? (It's very much before my time, sorry).

                    The copper coin looks like it could have been perhaps produced by the same manufacturer, but I do not recognize the design - the "searcher coins" I've seen before, but this one seems new to me.

                    Does anyone recognize it?


                    Other than that, I'd offer that the four stones are reminiscent of the colours you'd see in a medicine wheel, though if that was the intent, I'm not sure why someone would choose a grey stone in lieu of a black one, when plenty of black stones do exist. But the colour combination certainly stands out.

                    The small key looks like the type used on tiny locks - I used to have one for my luggage. Perhaps the other will prove to be a locker key. Certainly quite the mystery! I hope the searchers have a grand adventure solving it, whatever it is. I'd love to know who thought to put this together for them: it must have been quite a bit of work, and, I imagine, a welcome kindness in a year that has otherwise wanted for a bit of that old Forrest Fenn magic.
