  • Almost Umbilically

    Almost : 1. very nearly but not exactly or entirely 2. very near but not quite
    Synonyms : about, all but, borderline, fairly, more or less, more, much, near, nearly, next to, nigh, practically, somewhere, virtually, well-nigh
    Umbilical : extremely close
    Synonyms : omphalic
    If you ask me this sounds like the searcher is within 12 feet. So why don't they retrieve it? How about those synonyms for almost? Borderline, nigh.

    I would say it’s the weather conditions, this person probably knows it’s them and is just waiting for warmer weather

        A Memory Runs Through My Family

        Lightning struck me today in the form of an email from someone I never met and do not know. But the history of our respective families is so entwined as to be almost umbilical.
        Good find. This demonstrates that he likes to use the word to indicate "tied together in spirit". It's another indication of how special the place is to him and how much he liked being there.

            Using a dictionary will get you nowhere in this chase.

              I dont mind cold. I paid to play in below zero today. The snow accumulation is an issue however, so it's going to be a couple of months until I am able to get the treasure.

                Yea, because each and every one of us knows exactly what each and every word in the poem means.
                That silly old man was probably just pulling our leg with the many, many, many times he has emphasized the importance of knowing the meanings of words.

                  Did you happen to run into GuyFromDenver out there on the slopes today ?
                  He was headed out about 9ish this morning …

                        I don't want to feel this overwhelming hostility.

                          Yep, and so he was pulling our legs when he said he makes up his is own meanings too.

                              Back to what I was saying about the dictionary. Attached is a link to an interview with Fenn (ALWAYS check your references with any Fenn quote. There are a lot of fake quotes out there. Video interviews are very reliable). The video is fairly short, so please take a moment to watch it all. At about 1:40 into the video Fenn explains what he thinks about dictionaries. He says that they retard free speach. He pretty much feels the same way about the rules of grammar, and he makes this point very clear in the video as well. I do not think that Fenn could be more clear on this point then he is in this video taped interview: he makes up his own words, definitions and rules of grammar. This is the reason why I said earlier and I will say again now, using a dictionary will get you nowhere in the chase. Dictionaries lie. They tell you what some editor wants a word to mean and not what you mean by a word. Fenn checks the dictionary to be sure that his word is not in a dictionary. Instead of citing chapter and verse from Webster, read into Fenns words what you think that he means by what he says. Many searchers will tell you that Forrest Fenn says one thing when he means another. If you stick to the literal definition of the words in the poem you are crippling your search.

                              Let me know what you think.
