  • "The final clue, he said, would be . . . in the parking lot . . ."
    https://mysteriouswritings.com/dougl...-upon-a-while

    That's so close to being helpful it makes you wonder what Forrest's exact words were. One thought I had was that his car would be found in "Park". 3 of the states have a Park county in them. Unfortunately, if that were the "Last" clue, it would be pretty broad. I'd expect the last clue would be more direct like Look Quickly Down or some other specific instruction.

    • Something to think about . . .

      Without knowing all of the details that Forrest discussed with his lawyers, I really don't think that a national park can be ruled out.
      What seems to be a little-known fact, is that the NPS does indeed have the authority to lease property within a national park.
      (Google ~ leasing land in a national park)
      Knowing that, I'm reminded of the comment Forrest made in the Playboy interview.
      Starts @ 46:15

      Another interesting article . . .

      And, although he's talking about planes, I found the following comment intriguing . . .
      "If you violate a rule, that's okay, as long as it works. If it doesn't work, then you'll answer for it."
      @29:19 in the Playboy interview.

      He was going to make it work, no matter what.

      I am not suggesting the treasure is in Yellowstone or any other national park.

        A NP seems like the most likely place to me

          The Denver Museum hint(?) has always bothered me. Is Douglas Preston in on it or is he not? If ‘two can keep a secret...’ is really how Mr. Fenn feels, why should we listen to anything Preston says?

              • High noon, oh I'd sell my soul for water
                Nine years worth of breakin' my back
                There's no sun in the shadow of the wizard
                See how he glides, why he's lighter than air
                Oh I see his face!

                Where is your star?
                Is it far, is it far, is it far?

                We build a tower of stone
                With our flesh and bone
                Just to see him fly
                But don't know why
                Now where do we go?

                Hot wind, moving fast across the desert
                We feel that our time has arrived
                The world spins, while we put his dream together
                A tower of stone to take him straight to the sky
                Oh I see his face!

                All eyes see the figure of the wizard
                As he climbs to the top of the world

                Look at my flesh and bone
                Now, look, look, look, look,
                Look at his tower of stone
                I see a rainbow rising
                Look there, on the horizon
                And I'm coming home

                Where is your star?

                ~Rainbow~
                Stargazer
                ==============

                marvel gaze sounds like starstruck, to me.
                just like Forrest was when meeting DD.

                I've gone down untold paths looking at the poem, keeping in mind, the motive that fueled the very beginning.
                It all goes back to a rebel who refuses to color within the lines, a maverick.
                He would take it with him. That'll teach them !
                Now, where would he hide a body ?
                ===========================================

                A genuine treasure map shows a mark where you'll find the treasure.
                If the poem is the map to the treasure, then the poem is marked.
                Where is the poem marked at ?

                The blaze, in association with light, is an attractive view.
                The blaze is the real star of the show.
                Where is the star of the poem ?

                The star of the poem is the capital Brown.

                It stands out. It is noticed. It is questioned.
                It is curious.
                Brown is the star, that makes it a Brown star.
                A brown star is a dwarf.
                Brown dwarfs the other characters.

                dwarf - "A legendary creature resembling a tiny old man; lives in the depths of the earth and guards buried treasure.

                    Douglas Preston and Mr. Fenn are like two peas in a pod, they both wear there character on there sleeves. So to the end, who else would you rather ride the trail with?

                      We all wear our merits in different ways. Some may choose to share accomplished ideas while others may choose to share accomplishments. If I were to listen good it wouldn’t be gauged by the size on the ears. Perhaps the lesson best learned is number 5...lighten up and don’t get carried away by your importance.

                          • Geography.

                            It seems that there are those who assume that they know exactly what Forrest means when he stresses the importance of this subject.
                            They'll tell you that it means this, and that it doesn't mean that.
                            But at the end of the day, they leave themselves open to skepticism.

                            Has Forrest Fenn ever defined his use of "geography" ?
                            If not, then how can anyone say that he favors this branch of geography over that branch of geography ?

                            Forrest said "a comprehensive knowledge of geography". To my knowledge, he never spoke of any particular branch of geography in relation to this comment.

                            So, which branch of geography, or which sub-discipline of those branches does he endorse over any of the others ?

                            Human Geography
                            Physical Geography
                            Regional geography
                            Cartography
                            Integrated geography

                            On a conclusive note, geography is a very wide subject and this is why it is comprised of numerous sub-disciplines within it. There are other branches within this science that have not been discussed and some of the notable ones include: Geographic education, historical geography,
                            GIS (Geographic Information Systems)
                            ,
                            remote sensing
                            , and quantitative methods. There are some branches in geography which are generally interrelated very closely to others but there are others that have very different principalities in place.

                            Rocks, ocean currents, waves, tides, mountains, rivers, climate . . . take your pick.

                            And lest I forget . . .
                            "
                            Linguistic geography can also refer to studies of how people talk about the landscape."

                            Now, please feel free to choose a branch that fits your narrative and show me how your choice has yielded any more results than my choice has.

                            • Aspects of linguistic geography are most interesting from my pov, but it goes further than that. I've always thought in itself TTOTC was aberrant. It's a textualized oral tradition. There are elements in its vignettes that are clearly not factual but certainly could be considered non-literal truths to the teller. Whether this hybridized representation of place through poiesis occurs in the poem, however, is anybody's guess. I tend to think it does not.

                              • Forrest is a nature lover. That much can't be disputed.

                                Seeing it this way gives me a comprehensive knowledge of geography.
