  • Under appreciated part of the chase.

    I think what is the most under appreciated part of the chase is the education those of us who chose to solve the poem attained. For example what is the difference between a canyon, a ravine, a gulley and a draw. I have a geological draw as part of my answer and had to look up what it meant. I had an idea but wasn’t exactly sure. This is just an example of the myriad of things I had to look up and learn about. I am sure everybody has their own.

    Good point. I agree with this.

      Very true! I homeschool my kids, and we've used the chase to teach history, geography, geology, orienteering, map reading, vocabulary, etc., and they enjoy it too!
      To be right for someone, you have to be willing to be wrong for someone else.

        Education vs knowledge.
        Is there a difference?
        I learned me alot about so many things - it has been simply amazing.
        So much so that what I have learned in the past has been running out of my ears - I simply have run out of memory.

          I’ve learned more than a little about the history of the Southwest including Spanish colonization. Oh, the Land Grand thing is fun also.

              Great post OP! I think f would be smiling to read that. For two reasons, 1. the face value and good vibes - he wanted to enrich other's lives and 2. I think he designed the poem so that you learn a specific skill in the process of figuring the solution. I suspect orienteering but it could be several things.

                Don't forget box canyon, slot canyon, blind canyon, valley, bluff, etc.
