  • The Chest Was Moved.

    Hypothesis,

    Jack found the chest in 2019 and retrieved it. On the way back to the hotel, he decided to rebury it in a place he was familiar with. Forrest may or may not have given Jack an ultimate, so Jack finally retrieved the chest at the log we've all seen at 9-Mile Hole, where he reburied it. That log has decayed for more than two years.

    Jack never expected that log to be found, and now he's in a jam. The family knows the solution to the poem...

    How do you put in below a fish at 9-Mile Hole?
    The poem is contiguous, so how is there no paddle up your creek before crossing a river?

    No way, no how, is this over....

    NMH solves posted to date certainly are nonsensical. I disagree on the log, but why would he move the chest there?

    You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.

      Now this would be the answer one would need, to understand the big picture. By all means, everyone, keep looking at the little picture of your solution. Keep telling everyone it's your solution or nothing. Because everyone is wrong, and now nine mile is right, what a joke. Some solve pushed as truth, to hide the real location. Why ?

        Because he found it and determined to leave it in the park at a location he was very familiar with.

          So why would Fenn go along with it? Presumably Fenn would not remember details of a log in another location he buried it next to, but he might have a picture of where he left it. Or did Fenn just not notice?

            Beats me. The NPS wants to corral people to place they're already going anyway?

              Maybe Jack fed him BS. It could have originally been buried up to the lid with a stone over it, and a new photo with new-fallen trees would not have alerted f. Maybe even the story of the broken blaze is BS.

                Because Jack moved it to somewhere he was familiar with on the way back to the hotel.

                  There's enough BS around this ending to bury the chest 3 feet deep. What is the motive for leaving it out there, though? Are you assuming it was found in 2019?

                    You're looking at the ending through your solve. You think it was in Yellowstone, and you can only see the ending through that lens.

                      Yes, I am assuming...

                        Let's say, for example, Jack did move the chest, and the family releases the solution, and it is not at 9-Mile. The log is at 9-Mile, so what does that say about what Jack did? Is he responsible for everything that happened after?

                        He didn't expect that log to be found....

                          This fits with the auction site, but the problem, imo, with your theory is that I doubt he would rehide it somewhere that is a known search area.

                            Where he found it could have been a well-searched area. From his Reddit posts, it could be assumed he was very familiar with 9-Mile and knew few would cross the river. If it was initially on Firehole, he had some time to think about it driving back to West Yellowstone and may have decided to leave it in the park where he knew he would be secluded enough to bury it again and retrieve it. After all, it was probably his original search area.

                            The problem now is that we know where the log is, and if hypothetically the solution doesn't go to 9-Mile, we know it was found earlier.

                            What auction site?
