  • Is it Fair?

    Let's say the lead searcher figured out how to communicate with Forrest and would email Forrest on various topics. Forrest would never email back the lead searcher but would make public postings, comments, articles, six questions, etc. In those public postings would be words that are key. Regardless of any coded communications the lead searcher had been fixed on their solve location but was still working out the exact science and decoding of the clues. Would this be an unfair advantage? Would people be upset feeling the lead searcher had an unfair advantage? In essence might people view it as a game of colder/warmer? But, what if only one public clue is what actually tipped off the lead searcher. A clue that contained no coded key words? So, when the searcher responded to Forrest giving his code word hints he now knows where it is, Forrest responded publicly to basically indicate you got me.

    Regardless of this communication, the lead searcher was still going back to their solve location and was going to look in the exact 10x10x6 location he felt it had to be. The only thing the communication did was make him smile. There is still the opportunity someone else could beat the lead searcher to the spot since many of these same clues are now more publicly visible. Some of these clues published are now a glaring spotlight on the area but not the hidey spot. However, once people know what the area is, they will go right to the hidey spot. From there, they will have to figure out the clues in short order to find the true location.

    The clock is now ticking and the lead searcher had better hurry before others zoom in on the area and figure out the rest of the clues.

    You are correct. They better be on their A game, and did their homework.
    I will watch them running around in circles from above, like Doug Peacock watched the grizzlies, just in range of near death.

      The main clue is “Why” if you are in the right area and figured out why, well then we have a race. My sensai used to always stress, “ A wise falcon hides his claws”.

        That Sir is just not going to happen and nobody is going to throw in any gas money for something so impossiable.

          Long wind usually helps with the gas, or that’s what my gut says. I thought you went into hibernation.... late?

                  I don’t see that as unfair, it would be no different then being the only one to figure out a cypher

                    I agree IG. As long as nothing was provided in private, it's all good.

                        I agree with ig. Everything f said is public and how someone interperts it is their own perspective

                          If there was a communication of sorts, it would of been 100% in view of the public, which in-turn makes it fair game for all. If it was me that was the lead searcher and caught on to it, I would never speak of it in the end anyway. I'm sure a good percentage of people would feel the same way, so as hunters, we'll never know.
                          "SSShhhh!. Be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting wabbits with my imagination", "huh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh".

                            What’s that saying, “alls fair and love and war”
                            I thought I had it figured out last year, I think I have it figured out this year. Still trying to figure out myself....
                            I will try and be like Rolltide and just settle in till Spring. Good luck to ya all. Hope we can shake hands somewhere over the rainbow or at least in the wilderness.

                              That is wrong thinking!

                              While it might be true that Forrest is cheering someone on, I do not accept or give the thought that it might be me any quarter. Nor should anyone. It is too slippery of a slope that will send you sliding down into that canyon deeper than you could ever dig out of.

                              Yes, everything that Forrest says should be applied to every solve.

                              But there are thousands of searchers with tens of thousands of great solves. And many believe Forrest is talking to them personally. They can't all be right. Which means most are wrong about that idea.

                              It is better to really be the mythical "Lead Searcher" Forrest might be talking to and not believe he is talking to you, than to not be the mythical "Lead Searcher" and believe he is talking to you.

                              If you really are the mythical "Lead Searcher," you won't need to receive his comments as directed to you personally to find the chest.

                              If you aren't the mythical "Lead Searcher" then thinking you are is going to compromise any real chances you might have otherwise had to find the chest.

                              Walking Among Lions, you resemble Scott Conway but I cannot tell for sure because of the sunglasses in your pic.
