    Has anyone ever come across Forrest using a 'hashtag' # anywhere in his other writings.
    This scrapbook is interesting as it is the only one to my knowledge that was released in 'realtime'

        Immediately after SB219 = #5 crock: in SB220 = #8 spider web turquoise chunk necklace
        A bit later, SB230 = lists #1-#7: rules/explanations of his game (interesting!)

          Here's the #5 Crock. It's also why he mentioned the Thunderbird with 255 horsepower.

          Here are the white pasta in the chili. Do you see the Tabasco? What about the lady with red hair? The green grass is for the lady with green hair.

                  This was that period in the scrapbooks when every single one made one’s heart skip a beat. Like all rare and wonderful things, one doesn’t fully appreciate the fleeting, seminal moment until it is gone. Miss them and their architect.

                    For sure!
                    Don’t whine because the Chase is over, but smile because it happened.

                      Hi Fenndery - The concrete post is the beginning and the end of the poem. Forrest was cemented to that special country. It's on the edge of the park he loves. The FF's on the wood ar ewhy he liked to sign as F or f. The U is for the halt and cease. The sign next to this post is shaped like an old bathtub. He incorporated words into his stories by using letters from the sign and also words on the bronze bench mark cap. He wrote about bronzes and bronze making umpteen times because of the cap. All the round things like pies, tops, yo-yo's, crocks and so on for the round cap. All the red and white things like Campbell's soup, red wax ff's, fire, pasta with chili, Time magazine, Babe Ruth candy bars, foxes, and so on for the red and white on the wood. Forrest hinted to this spot in hundreds of not thousands of clever ways over the years but most wanted it to be complicated and most people don't ever notice the things in front of them. Here are a few examples more examples of hints he gave for the horseshoe. In the Moby interview he said he was going to fling himself on tje chest. Later on in the same interview he said throw himself on the chest. And he said I'm gonna dare U to find me. He shared a couple of different stories about pitchers. For those reading that don't know about the game horseshoes, fling, pitch and throw are terms used in the game. Horseshoe are a game played at Sunday afternoon picnics and Horseshoe Bay is a popular spring break resort. You didn't have to be a genius to make the connections, just be an average person.

                        I think there's residue from the '60s still in my brain and that's why I'm able to remain calm while reading this forum .

                              Fenndery - Solved it in May 2020. I'll help you. Look at the sign. Do you see why Forrest said AS I have gone ALONE IN there?

                              Now why would he start the second stanza with a capital B? Well let's take a look see shall we?

                              Say cheese when you see it. As of of this posting, that stake has been in that very spot for a long time and is very precise. It's on the edge of Yellowstone, the edge of Gallatin National Forrest, the edge of Gallatin Canyon and is the right of way marker for the highway. Do you think I should get high marks yet? I hope nobody sends me any marijuana cookies. Take it in the canyon down leaves you only one direction to go since it starts here.

                              Since I'm not sure if you ever took Forrest's advice and got the only map he ever mentioned, this iis the Gallatin National Forrest map. The post is located where the red and greenines form the giant X. Anyway, you follow the road in the canyon down. Not far but too far to walk. This takes you to Buffalo Horn Creek which is the home of Brown. You probably recall Home on the Range where the Buffalo roam. And if you know anything about walking you might notice that from the beginning to this point, it's the back half of a leg. So now you are following Buffalo Horn Creek and you follow it to just past the word Horn. Do you see the foot attached to the back of your leg. Just heavy loads and water high is Hyalite Porcupine Buffalo Horn Wilderness Study Area which is above this spot on the map and you don't go that way. If you've been wise you spotted the big Y at the end of the foot. Follow that dashed line or the tail of the Y down. Amd found the blaze. The blaze is Yellowstone. Here's a better view of the giant chicken head standing out.

                              Now you look quickly down and you are back to where you started. when you are back at this spot pay attention to the sign becauae you've got the blaze, YELLOWSTONE, a wise OWL, and you can LOOK quickly down which takes you or U to the base of the post. A stitch in time saves nine. If one would have heeded Forrest's advice to pay more attention to the first clue one could have saved themselves the journey on the map but it would have been highly unlikely to happen that way. F gives U title 2 the gold. His riches old had a title and it was YELLOWSTONE. Forrest treasured words and writing amd he tried many times to get searchers to pay attention to the bold letters. That's why he mixed things up by playing around with words, fonts, using upper case in one book, lower case in another and other playful ways. Do you see the leg that is too far to walk now? Hope U enjoyed it because this is the solution that Jack didn't want revealed.
