  • Gloves, Flashlight, Sandwich

    Interesting that the word "love/loves" is present in the first item.

    Why a flashlight? Treasure Codex recently mentioned the concept of a black hole. In the photo of FF drawing his XX on page 99, the cap of the very prominently displayed "Sharpie" resembles a deep, dark hole of some sort. Like Forrest jumping off the bridge in the middle of the night, do we have to make a leap of faith into that black hole?

    Sandwich? You won't get me talking about that one!

      The flashlight may be already there!

        It is, but I did not know you would say that. Lotta candlepower in that flashlight and some pretty strong batteries. I like the X Forrest drew like an Egyptian hieroglyph. It's pretty abstract, but the important features can be made out.

            The sandwich is the most important thing you'll need.

              I like to think the flashlight puts me on top of things. I can see now that forrest has already laid claim to that spot

                Can I bring a tamale instead of a sandwich? They tend to be yummier, and they come in biodegradable packaging.

                  "– People have become fixated on you telling them to bring a sandwich and a flashlight. Are they just
                  wasting their time focusing on these things as clues?"


                  FF: "They certainly are not clues."

                    I don 't care if flashlight and a sandwich are clues or not. I like light in the dark and food in my belly. Fenn has been asked a couple of different ways if you could find the treasure during the day without a flashlight. He has said yes, but nobody followed up and asked if it could be found at night without a flashlight. I did a geocache once that could only be found at night with a flashlight. There were reflectors in the trees that pointed the way. Who knows, Fenn could have done somethign similar, and since nobody asked if you need a flashlight at night to find it he could be laughing at their questions. I set a geocache up once that could only be done at night with a laser pointer, but the site got overwhelmed with stray cats, so we had to take that one down.

                      Noooo it's not a clue in the sense of a clue .. in f-speak I'll call it a "sniffer"

                      Take the word "alone" there is an idiom for that word... look at it like this.. if you get in the back of a cab, are you alone in the cab.. in one sense yes you went in there alone and your still basically alone..
                      your just a passenger...

                          I'm guessing it wasn't peanut butter.

                            Lol, wouldn't surprise me if that started getting analysed too.

                              Gloves, Flashlight, Sandwich and now apparently a come-along (hand held winch), it surprises me this didn't get more attention when it was mentioned in scrapbook 201
