    If you've been wise and found the blaze
    just take the chest and go in peace.

    Your effort will be worth the cold
    If you are brave and in the wood...

    Note how the verse goes from blaze to cold, when seemingly referring to the same place.

    So, you've been wise, now comes the question 'are you brave', and it is assumed that you have found the blaze and are in the wood.
    Having met all of the above requirements, you are now told to just take the chest and go in peace.
    So where does cold fit into all of this ? More on that later. Right now, I'm focused on the wise and peace.
    ================================================== ===============================

    'go in peace', is a salutation addressed to someone who is departing,
    a salutation is an invocation.
    It is also used as a prayer for the departed.
    As I have gone alone in there.

    Wise, and peace. How do they tie together ... wisdom and peace.

    Solomon was wise.
    Solomon means peace, in Hebrew.

    ( doyen works well )

    If you've been wise, go in peace.

    If you nail that one down, you've made it to the dean's list.
    ================================================== ==========

    There are wigs of a persuasion that believe Solomon never existed.
    They believe this, because no hard drive has ever been found.

    Sounds not too unlike the chase. One won't know they have the first clue nailed down until they find the chest ...

    Solomon
    Hercules
    Atlas
    Zeus
    Achilles
    Mercury

    nice keyword ...

    Subtle hints.
    Here is the key !

    Stanza 2

    1. Begin it where warm waters halt and take it in the canyon down
    2.1 Put in
    2.2 below
    2.3 the home of Brown
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Stanza 3 - 5

    3. From there it's no place for the meek
    4. The end is ever drawing nigh
    5. There'll be no paddle up your creek
    6. Just heavy loads
    7. and water high
    8. If you've been wise and found the blaze
    9.1 If you are brave
    9.2 and in the wood

    I have a thing for connecting words and word meanings, and how they might relate to the poem.
    My approach shows that "look at the big picture" might possibly be connected to a line in the poem, as I 've shown above.
    Do you feel that page 99 is relative to words/lines in the poem ?
    "Look quickly down your quest to cease" is not a clue in my solve.
    When Forrest had said "to get back in the box" he was directing to use method in solving the first 2 clues as they are illustrated in picture on page 128.

    What, exactly, is the big picture ?
    And, where is it found ?
    Is this a hint ?
    Will it help with a clue(s) ?
    How ?

    Is it hinted at in the poem ?

    Look quickly down your quest to cease.
    take a quick look
    To look quickly, is to catch a glimpse.

    First thing I noticed was the spelling on the jersey. “Knights” looks like it is spelled as “Xnights.” Gee whiz, seems everything has a Chase connection...lol

    This train of thought makes me wonder about wood being struck by lightning. In the “Natural,” Roy Hobbs’ bat was carved from a tree that had been struck by lightning. It had a lightning bolt carved into it and he named it Wonderboy.

    There is a book and a movie which differ in their endings. I prefer the movie version with Robert Redford nailing the final home run. I have to imagine with the Robert Redford link that Forrest feels the same way.

    Final Home Run:

    “”To say that someone is brave, might be to say that they have grit. When I look at the word 'grit', I smile when I see that one of the synonyms is 'oak'. Hmmm, now I have brave and I have wood.
    https://www.classicthesaurus.com/grit/synonyms/2
    I then find that oak gives me 'stout-hearted'. Bingo
    .”

    Interesting...I just recently learned that there is an association between Thor and oak trees. Oaks explode when struck by lightning....so there you have it...this year’s “explosion”...lol

    "Besides walking, did you use any other methods of transportation to get back and forth between the car and the hide ?"

    other methods of transportation
    different means of transport
    different transport modes
    kinds of transport
    various means/forms of transport
    multi mode
    intermodal
    multimedia
    https://www.classicthesaurus.com/intermodal

    So, why didn't F answer the question ?
    Answer . . . the wording of the question.

    New Zealanders refer to crossties as sleepers.

    Which makes me realise, if you're stuck inside a box, you can still be going somewhere.

    So long as you are still on the main trunk, and not sidelined.

    Tooooowwooooot!

    And btw, a box is a method of transportation.
    And, if you are "in the box", then you are boxed-in.
