    Last seen down the meat row of Walmart, sporting an expensive headdress.

    I wouldn't lose your head over it, duck(s) are a global thing.

    I believe you ARE tired.
    No -- the ducks were all swimming. But the little flat rock I found was denser than water. I plan to keep that rock as a souvenir.
    I think you're a pretty good artist, and I'm glad you are alive. I hope you stay healthy for at least a few more years.
    Best regards to you and your family.
    OP- Are you feeling OK? You never answer my questions and generally tend to ignore me.
    ...and then to top it off, you complement me. If I were you, I would immediately take my pulse to see if I was alive. Presuming you are, I would schedule a check up with your physician for a complete physical. Something is wrong....I just know it, ........ the place wouldn't be the same without you.

    Anyway thanks for your complements;
    Your friend,
    1f Billy

    Is there any thing else, (of commonly used attire), that you don't wear that you want to tell us?

    This does not compute. The people may be gone, but the walls, etc. aren't.
    Yes OPie, it does. Those walls you mention are virtually gone but it’s the history that remains. The train stop at Osier will remain in history regardless of its operation. There are other historic railways in Colorado and around the country that have been gone or abandoned for many years but many are remembered in history. Some are converted to bicycle paths and many old right-of-ways are hiked by rail buffs each year. An example is the “Chili Line” branch of the old D&RGRR that ran between Santa Fe and Antonito and was abandoned in 1948. I drove the hiway in June 2020 and I could see an old water tank and sections of the rail bed from the road.
    So yes, the geographic location that today is the train Halt at Osier will be there into perpetuity baring some catastrophic change to the area. But even in that event, it will remain alive in the history books. But I suspect you already knew that. Who are you trying to fool… and why?

    Thanks for sharing.
    Yeah, I'm not certain on how to place/size it. This is sized off 10 below HOB radius(as in build a pirate map. With wwwh, pibhob, npfm, hob. Location isn't relevant this is the blaze you are trying to found and then marry to a map). A placement that seemed to have some correlation with poem and 9mh. I still think it uses 1/6/7/12 section boundaries via weak = flagging.

    His crack?

    I saw some ducks in water high near heavy loads, near the location of the spot that my solve led me to. Every time I see the mention of ducks posted, I think I'm being teased by someone "in the know" about the correct solve. Well, maybe not 100% "in the know", but enough to know that duck(s) as a subject for consideration could help solve the poem. As always, all part of my opinion.
    Op- Good one ..Tired.
    Say, when you saw those ducks, were any of them diving?
    Now don't duck answering my question. Thank you in advance for your answer.
    I have lots of questions. Lots more.

    Please start sending out some want ads.

    As for a thousand-year-old treasure poem---hell no. It'll be forgotten in the bleak future of pandemics and climate change disasters.

    And here's a reasonable rational ending for the C&TS steam train.
    It may end for financial reasons, although there are lots of profitable steam train operations all across the country.
    But even if the company is dismantled and the track and the rails removed. its path through the mountains, chiseled out with sledge hammers, pick axes, and dynamite, will remain visible and usable for a very long time. Heck, future hikers and explorers will seek out the "Toltec Trail" for a 62-mile challenge through New Mexico & Colorado.
    They'll point out the treasure site as they pass through Osier and put in below the home of Brown.
    Lars, you are exactly right. The San Lazaro Pueblo has been “gone” for a few hundred years yet it’s still there.

    Right next to heavy loads, where it's expected to remain for many centuries to come.
