  • Hey BW,
    I wish the quote was up here...a river, a wash, an arroyo, and a creek. The cover of his book with the shadow on the water....What is the "shadow of the water?" Cheers.

This is 100% FACT that you indeed need to cross a river. If you didn't have to, FF would have been an absolute reckless asshole not to rule out a river crossing. So yes you had to cross a river. 200%. I'm sorry if you can't see that, it means you are beyond help.
      Blazingwaddles your post above gives the impression that you quoted me, when in fact you were quoting trueyeti. Can you fix that please? Thank you.

        Hey V,
        I think that he did try...maybe its too late. Anyway...does Olga go with your German Brown somehow? Cheers.

          Hey yeti, there was no specific tie-in to Olga in my solve. As for brown trout appearing in many places besides 9MH, you are correct. However, I wasn't concerned with all the other places, because the preceding clues in the poem had already narrowed my focus to Madison Canyon. I felt that 9MH was the most significant fishing hole in the canyon, and also the best fit to the subsequent poem clues.

            Hey V,
            Yes yes yes. I understand what you mean and I appreciate the effort you have put forth to show viability for Wyoming. Valiant IMO. But what does Wyoming say of Richard Wetherill, Byron Harvey, the Navajo Silversmith and the turquoise bracelet? Where is Brown tied into Milay's "palace in the sand" that Forrest used to describe the place where he felt the most comfortable?

            Where is the frog, the cats, the dragon, the "riches," the cow "Bessie," the W/M's, the "word that is key," the pies, the tail (tale), the blah, blah, blah, blah, blah....... So many things? Does the "quest to cease" lay in the "east?" Does the word "trove" go with "grove?" And what about the "shadow of the river" or the "shadow on the river?"

            Despite "Wyoming" the "winning solve" must answer the above items/questions. I laude your efforts but remind you about AC Doyle's quote, “When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” Cheers.​

              Even if true (which I'm not addressing), you certainly don't need to get wet or put yourself in any danger crossing a river. Bridges remove those issues.
              If you didn't have to, FF would have been an absolute reckless asshole not to rule out a river crossing.
              He couldn't (or at least shouldn't) have ruled out river crossings if one is an absolute necessity for success. But again: bridges. Consider the cover art of "Seventeen Dollars a Square Inch."

                Hey Zap,
                No biggie...but that quote is labelled under my name...something got crossed up in this thread and it seems to have started a couple of comments ago. It wasn't me...

                Anyway....I add that a bridge over a river is not necessary if the river in question is seasonal. For example, a dry wash. Oh sure, when it rains it pours, and the wash now becomes a river....but after it carries the "heavy loads" from "water high," then it becomes a shadow of its former self....a dry wash...once again. Cheers.
