    By the way, it was a phalange they found when they raided f. He made that clear. It was just a toe.
    Nah. Just a finger... to go with my nose. A cast replica will do.

      I’m honestly quite surprised that this thread hasn’t gotten more serious attention. This could be the closest thing to ‘the truth’ about this ending that we’ve received to date. Instead people are too focused on photo manipulation, which may be shown to be inconsequential to the outcome of the chase overall, and likely will be forgotten. We may not be seeing what is hidden in plain sight.

      Forrest’s goal was to get people off the couch and into the mountains. So, here’s a crucial hypothetical question. If no one was ever close to solving the poem, would it even matter if the treasure chest had already been placed there? Would that have made any difference to searchers who were married to an incorrect solution (like me). What if it was a failsafe built into the chase to not have the goodies in the wilderness prematurely, so that it wouldn’t be stumbled upon? Would the huge numbers of people who actually went into the mountains BOTG have gone if they had known that it was not there yet? Probably not, and many of those people, families, would not have discovered the real treasure of this experience - the Rocky Mountains.

      I get it though, knowing if this scenario were true it would piss me off as a searcher, especially if I was someone who never emailed Fenn my solution. I think that at first, the chase was small, he gave out his email and probably assumed most would use it. But then it grew into an unruly monster, with unforeseen consequences. Many more searchers than anticipated.
      But, from the other side of objectivity, I can also see the wisdom in this treasure hunt design. Of course, this is all IMO, and contingent upon the hypothetical “Death Theory” being correct.

        I think this scenario would seem sound to most, except for the rumors that Forrest was to be cremated and he and Peggy’s ashes would be placed in the same urn.
        I have thought, many times since this all “ended”, that the possibility that Forrest took sleeping pills and took his own life in September is very high. Apparently he had a “do not resuscitate” order signed. Who knows. I recently went back to the site I always thought the chest was located; the site that I searched MANY times. I guess I was always wrong.

          About the time the death toll numbers for searchers "buying the farm" was rising, Forrest was pretty adamant about not calling off the hunt. This fact tends to have me believing that there was, at the time, a real (decent) trove available to be found. I said "tends to", as I have no proof of this. I can also imagine that the real (decent) trove was never out there. I never e-mailed Fenn with my solve, but did a lot of teasing about it on the blogs. He would have understood the teasing, but perhaps most (or all) other searchers would not have. I think he knew that someone was getting close to finding the trove. I also (speaking of death) believe that the lawsuits by Erskine and by Baboon hastened Forrest's death . . . and I'm pretty pissed off about that.

              Is this supposed to be funny, "man with a sick, very sick sense of humour" ?
