    Dictionary Smictionary.... The architect is a master trickster. IMO, one can get lost in the "definition," especially inside of a riddle....which is like a "maze/labyrinth."

    IMO.... "From there it's no place for the meek" is a riddle in itself. IMO and for my location, the Bisti "Badlands" are no place for the meek. See, the "Badlands" are a seldom explored area by the masses. It takes bravery to "boldly go" (treasures bold) into an area such as that. Heck.... they named it the "Badlands" for a reason. You need to be "bold" if you've not the experience of trekking into such a formidable place such as that.....hell, that place fits an excellent answer to the riddle of "it's no place for the meek." Meek and brave and bold oh my....the riddle of the poem.... IMO.... uses operating metaphors that do indeed depart from the verbatim definition given by the dictionary for a "word."

    Remember when Forrest answered the question about the blaze being a single object.... he said "In a word, Yes." But what is in a "word" when his answer is a "riddle." Are we to go and look up the definition of the word "yes" in the dictionary and thereby loose the string through the maze and be devoured by the Minotaur? No thanks. I will take many....if not all of the words/sentences/etc....in the poem and in what he said.... as riddles in and of themselves. Cheers.

    PS. IMO.... anything coming from the finder or the Forrest camp since the treasure was recovered should be viewed with a high degree of skepticism. Cheers again.
    Skepticism, why do yo say that

    Forrest also used careful, precise wording. “No place for the meek
    Jack said it was in the safest place it could be.

    If you look up the word meek. It is defined as “quiet, gentle, easily imposed upon; submissive.”

    All these statements scream restricted area. A place YNP says is a “no go”. Certainly not NMH, as it’s not restricted at all. But several areas on the Firehole are indeed restricted. No fishing or treading there. Sure makes you wonder….

    Yep.......you are clearly a "suinej"....

    You are better off with just not writing anything.

    Hello. I'm sorry if this has been discussed and I just missed it but these two statements are contradictory and seem to indicate that Forrest intentionally lied:

    6/16/20 "but the poem in my book led him to the precise spot." - Forrest Fenn
    9/23/20 Medium post: "I figured out the location where he wished to die (and thus, where his treasure was) back in 2018, but it took me many months to figure out the exact spot." - Finder

    Has this been discussed somewhere I can watch/read about? Everyone generally agrees that FF is incredibly careful and deliberate with his words so I can't believe that in his written statement about the treasure being found he just made an error. Do most folks agree he lied about the poem leading the finder to the treasure? Am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance!
    Many people look at Forrest different. A lot of people thinks he lied occasionally. Me on the other hand I believe he was ambiguous but always honest.

I've enjoyed fennutiae for over a decade now and I still don't confuse it with where to focus my treasure hunting attention ... but it sure takes thinking.
    Put me in your not "smart enough" category, then, on all counts.

I can't understand how anyone would think Forrest waited ten years, and somehow missed telling the person who solved it. Ask Jack, as he looked at that area trying to understand the real solution, what happened. He sure did not show to Forrest, did he? I answer that, NO. People want it to be in Yellowstone or where ever they think their solution is. They are all wrong as were the finders. People are looking for a HOLE in the ground and you can't see, the artwork that was the chase.
    Like my pappy would say “they don’t know they a** from a hole in the ground”

    Don't waste your time asking Jack anything, IMO.

    Forrest fell on a sword for the finders and so did the solver, they have nothing to give, they even gave and took it back, because no one F N cares. The truth of the chase. Now everyone fight over the solution and the girls and see who wins.
