  • "...you start by getting in your car and driving to the first clue".

    What a great idea, so I drove to the shop, bought the book, which contained the first clue and...Wait a minute, no-one asked him how we arrive at the answer to the first clue! Darn!!!

    Although the hidey "spot" is in the Rocky Mountains, and the poem eventually leads us there, Forrest never told us the answers to all the clues are to be found in any of the four states.

    What if the search area is much bigger than the Rockies...???

          What if the search area is the whole western society which then leads you to a precise location but only after figuring the poem out once in a much more vast area.

            Why limit it geographically and not also open it up temporally? Maybe we get in our sedan and visit the ice age or some age before warm-blooded mammals?
            It could mean anything really; I'm trying to think of everything.

              I’ve seen the similarity’s that Briggs seen. Briggs was thrown all over history of the western society and things fenn adored the most and it was literally all over the Rocky Mountains. So many things he mentioned connect back. The man was a history buff for sure. He knew his history and literature. Damn near everything he said was borrowed. It was all in the back of his mind the whole time.

                    Big -I believe you are correct. I just thought about this yesterday. The reason the girl from India could not get past the first 2 clues. Is because she only has a map of the US Rockies. That is how the question was presented. There would be no other reason besides that, that she would not be able to...He didn't realize Canada was not on the map was a major clue most overlooked. I am now thinking you need to start with a world map or North America. But he also contradicted himself by saying all clues refer to one spot. Sorry I don't have the exact quotes on hand.

                            I cannot remember the quote, but was the question specific to the girl using Google Earth and the poem? So maybe unable to solve the third clue with only those tools?

                              Lmao, the first clue is the search state. No shit?! Get in your car and drive to wwwh. You can’t find the treasure if you don’t go to the state that it was hidden in, duh, that’s literally IMPOSSIBLE! That’s why he said “if you don’t have the first clue nailed down, you have nothing”.

                              What’s crazy is the hob is another state, but found inside of the search state. If you don’t know wwwh then hob wouldn’t make sense because it’s not in the Rockies.

                              it’s like if I started describing Paris, people would be like “those building don’t exist in Paris.” But the connection is in Paris, on one hand, the majority of people will think Paris, France, on the other is Paris, Texas. There’s even an Eiffel Tower there too. The point is,!things aren’t always as they seem, but they don’t need to be as long as you understand what is trying to be said.

                              The phantom knows, and now he’s here in spirit.
