    Put that with- "That fake blaze was less than 1,000 feet from where I eventually found the treasure. And that’s not even the half of that story." and Jack is practically spelling it out.
    I have to agree with this.

    Does this mean that whoever made and or damaged it new what he blaze was beforehand. And so did Jack. Or is the searcher that made and or damaged not a treasure box searcher. And how is it known that that searcher is cruel. I don’t believe the poem intended blaze is damaged, I think protected. Likely another. It was probably a blade of grass stepped on walking in the wrong direction. That was just for fun.
    I do. While this may be a community, people are inherently out for themselves. Human nature would push the people to do what it took to throw others off.

So yes, now how do we solve for that. Jack says there is a hint for the blaze in TTOTC.
    I'm not too concerned on what Jack is saying, but I agree that the poem is designed in so that we would know the blaze before we got there. However, I believe we have to solve the first clue and then let the poem lead us through the blaze and to the spot. No to picking out a blaze randomly, no to finding a blaze and backward-engineering to WWWH, and no counting clues. All IMO.

    The clues are contiguous lines on a map.

The existence of a fake blaze so close to that area wouldn’t throw off a searcher but be some confirmation of group think (or error that it was related to F at all and not, say, indigenous peoples.) When he found the ‘damaged’ blaze why wouldn’t he assume the treasure was already taken?
    IMO he didn’t. (Keep looking I mean)
    If we are to believe Jack’s story at all, I think we have to view it as suspicious bait. I don’t know his angle yet, but I’m 99.97% sure the true path is still viable and eludes group think. I wouldn’t use the word isolated- maybe sequestered.

    Additionally, Jack said in hindsight it was foolish or not prudent to go in 2018 looking with only 8 clues and not having the blaze. So a lot of solving to be done here....

But looking at the prior stanzas there is nothing that stands out as a clue or hint to the blaze. Unless…..the Blaze is also another one of the clues. Maybe the creek that you follow IS also the Blaze or goes through the wood with the blaze? Or something to that effect. It has to be something you’d need to spend 25 days searching, so maybe the tree is near the creek. I don’t know.

    I personally alway imagined something more durable. as an example I was all excited about Slough Creek because I knew that area was an old glacier area with large chuck of granite lying all around in the woods and I thought that’s the perfect location for a gravestone type blaze. But I can’t see a searcher going to that kind of effort. A tree would be much easier....who knows.

His dads burial location and the number of missions he flew in Vietnam. Kinda wierd huh, and Jack found the treasure???? Bull
    That would definitely rank in the freakiest/wierd top 5. I can see why you would be all over that area.
