    That was one of the hints in TTOTC. The poem was a map to the treasure. Forrest burned his map while Looking for Lewis and Clark. Burn the poem and follow a horse.

      Well it turns out that Forrest didn't really know how to create a poem that led you to a precise spot so he didn't give a damn if the the poem was precise and/or accurate, and what you didn't think of until you made it there was that the reason the Chase could last 1,000 years was that the clues were lame and haphazard: nobody was going to "solve" the poem.

      That's what we're left with if the above layout is correct.
      I hope this is sarcasm. This is not the correct solution. The correct solution is the Mona Lisa of treasure hunt solution's. He really did spend 15 years crafting the poem solution and it is beautiful. I think scholar's be studying the correct solution for the next 1000 years. When the solution is revealed, I wonder if the people who are proponents of the NMH solve, will admit that they were wrong?

I’m with it so far!

        Our next step is to imagine that “there’ll be no paddle up your creek involves neither a paddle nor a creek. Fair enough, but now we have to go in reverse because “just heavy loads” means logs that fell in a forest. “…and water high” either means nothing or refers in reverse to something you already did, which is cross the Madison below Mr Brown, the fish’s, home?

        what in the hell kind of sense does this make? Did Forrest have brain damage? Is that the secret? You don’t even use or need a creek for this solve. I guess we can basically throw away the poem at this point.



        You need only enter the poem into your autopilot, and it will be "followed precisely", but input the wrong starting point and...

This solve has no personal meaning, it's not about a secret fishing hole, not about seeing the Osprey dive, no overlooking the mountains or valley's. Why out of everything Forrest saw in his life would make him walk into this area and say "I'm going to die in this place"
            There is a very touching scene in Let's Throw Momma from the Train: Danny DeVito shows his coin collection to Billy Crystal, and none of them have any numismatic value. They are meaningful in much deeper ways. We all projected our inner landscape onto Fenn's cartography, and we forgot that only his inner landscape determined the legend of the map that the poem delineated. kpro

              It's funny that you should mention "Throw Momma from the Train." I always envisioned Ann Ramsey playing my mother in the movie version of my book. "OWEN"

                Jack didn't find it, so folk have been riding a dead pig.

                  You got it. What's being proposed here is just as bad as the GPS solve, IMHO. No offense to the true believers, but the fallacies need to be pointed out.

                    They only need to jive with how FORREST interprets it.
                    I would have never, ever said I interpreted the poem. Because I allowed f to guide me, interpretation was not necessary. Just follow the clues precisely, as Forrest said.
                    You and everyone else believing this log story have greatly underestimated f, it’s insulting to me and most certainly to the memory of Forrest.

                    Now, as I said: “The GPS coordinates do not jive with the poem, but who cares!?!? We have closure!!!!”

                      During those 15 years I think he spent a lot of time on Google maps just looking at things and also playing with the distance measure feature on Google maps. Being a pilot and seeing things from the air was also a factor. When he noticed it was 32 miles from the Entrance of Glacier Park to the turn off to the Put In that is likely where he got the idea for Warm Waters Halt, 32 miles being symbolic of 32 degrees when water begins to freeze and thus the distance of too far to walk. And worth the cold a reference to Glacier (park).

                      He noticed Mount Brown inside Glacier Park, that is how Glacier Park became the home of Brown. He could have chose any other Mount inside Glacier but went with Brown since it's a much used name and to not give it away too easily. To get from Glacier to Yellowstone all that was needed was to look quickly down the Continental Divide. Call the CD a blaze and Viola you have a poem.

                        I once asked Forrest if you remove ALL names from maps and streets would you still be able to use the poem to find the chest.
                        Forrest said, "Yes, I would still be able to find it."
                        I made the mistake initially thinking he was talking about any average searcher could, but he was talking about himself. Of course, HE could.
                        Now Forrest said to follow the clues precisely. Question is if he was referring to the average searcher or himself? I've done a lot of research in Forrest's quotes and I've found he may have tricked searchers by knowing we would relate his comments to us, but really he was only referring to himself. It's not lying. It's our fault for making assumptions. Be careful you are assuming things about Forrest that aren't true. You believe what you want to believe, but Forrest insulted himself and his memory. This whole thing got bigger than he could handle.

                          Be careful about what you assume about what I assume. I used the poem only, a map wasn’t needed. He spoke in dualities, which he cleverly made part of the Chase, and spoke this way, more to confuse than to help those who didn’t understand. Which has turned out to be about 100% of searchers.

                          I know Forrest and I know how he wrote the Poem and I hold both in very high regard.
