      I like 'in the right order' - interchangable

        Yes, and 'layered'.
        And, how about 'cycling' ?
        start-stop, start-stop, start-stop … begin-halt.

          The directions to the "treasure" (please note that I didn't say TC this time) are in the poem. Not in the blogs.
          Wasn't "Stan Lee" part of Livingstone's name, or am I presuming too much? Do you see a small hint in this message?

              Maybe the clues weren’t sent to him in the right order

                Stan Lee will be sorely missed.

                  Wait... are you saying that Stan Lee had something to do with this treasure?

                    Well, and this is just IMO, there is the chest (which is a treasure) and there is the treasure....the poem notes both treasures.

                    The thing to figure out is what, in Fenn's mind, is a treasure?

                      It's likely something Fenn considers a treasure, not something we'd look to take home; it could be a view he treasures, a fishing hole he's fond of, or a rock formation he finds funny when he looks at it - anything really that he holds dear....or it could be something else, but as treasure, something you cherish would work as the second "treasure" the poem speaks of.

                        Which one are you looking for?

                        The chest, of course.
