        If the trove isn't there, how will you know you're at that special spot?

          Don't know about a message for poverty, but it may have been "If you've been wise and recognized how vague and ambiguous my language is quit looking for this treasure and go about your life before you waste it."

          Or maybe there was a Blaze and a treasure box full of gold hidden in Wyoming and only Jack was smart enough to find it.

            That’s one helluva good question.

                  Because "I" believe that there will be a sign that one has come to the end, a new beginning.

                  If the trove is there, I will leave my contact information there so that those that closely follow and find that special spot can share in the victory of solving Forrest's plan.
                  I cannot imagine the disappointment of having a correct solve and coming away empty handed. In part, one of the main themes in Forrest's plan was a foundation of brotherly love.
                  We're all in this together. Being a mason, I will. use my trowel to spread the mortar (cement) between us.

                        interestingly, my grandpa had THIS EXACT Lauffin Head on the wall in his kitchen!
                        I now have it at my house ... only, it wouldn't work, so I mailed it to this dude out west ...
                        he's an ECCENTRIC ... freaking OBSESSED with LAUFFIN HEADS ... has MOST of them,
                        trying to collect them ALL ... so I sent mine to him on the promise he could "make it work" ....
                        this weird dude gets the thing, and he start coveting it's TONGUE ... I shit you not man ...
                        apparently he had a model of this one, but it was missing a TONGUE ... only, he couldn't
                        just say ... "Bro! I'm a freak, and I MUST HAVE your TONUGE ..."

                        Instead, he gives me a day by day, play by play progress report on my Lauffin Head's health,
                        each day, it gets worse and worse ... it's like he's the MD, and he's reporting to me from the IU
                        that my Lauffin Head's fate is looking grim ... then this looney tune tries to ... awkwardly ...
                        nonsensically ... leverage the fact that he "could" ... possibly SAVE ... nay REVIVE my
                        Lauffin Head, but he'd need to take its tongue ... no shit man. THIS.
                        he promises he could fashion ANOTHER TONGUE to take its place.
                        in a place of zero leverage I shirkingly agree.

                        So the eccentric takes his authentic OEM tongue,
                        and he mails me back my Lauffin Head ...
                        it's in what I'd call "barely working order" ....
                        it will work ... which is to say, it will laugh SLOWLY,
                        and distortedly, IF ... IF you pull the tie SO gd HARD
                        it feels like you are breaking the thing.
                        the action is so tense, man I can't even tell you.
                        it about gives me an anxiety attack every time
                        i try to yank on the thing.

                        this life ....

                              hahaha, hell yeah he could!!!

                              it gets so awkward when you're having in-depth 40 minute conversations about your precious "Lauffun Head"
                              with the only man in American who can save his life, and truly a mad genius, only ... as the conversation progresses,
                              you realize through the wilderness of meandering dialogue, the true price is ... his TONGUE ... and his little white tie ...
