    Don't worry !

      Haha, you certainly are confident.
      On a scale of 1-10, how confident are you? Based on your finds that support your solutions to each clue?

        10 But that does not even matter to me. I know how to make enough noise that any finder would hear the idea.

            In one sense, perhaps you could say the final object is the by-product of the process.

            In TTOTC, the retrieval of the chest is the by-product of the discovery of the Thrill of the Chase...or would you say, vice-versa?

            The treasure chest is still out there waiting to be found. It is not easy to find, but the fortunate bi-products of searching seem to come from all directions. f

              No, Forrest has made it quite clear that finder can keep bracelet but he would like to have first consideration if finder wanted to sell it. Now Forrest does have a cool Ancient Egyptian Cartouche that may be worth trading for.

                I believe in giving it all back to Forrest , after all this is The Thrill Of The Chase.

                  I'd consider horsetrading for the peace pipe -- maybe over a game of pool or Canasta. And then let him win. ;-)

                    I would give it back to him too but if he wanted to slip Minerva into the chest that would be pretty cool! Love that Bird!

                      Actually what Forrest seems to have there is an Amulet with a Spell from the Book Of The Dead inscribed on the back side.
                      It's not a typical Heart Amulet as it would have Spell 30b on it.
                      There are even other possibilities.

                        Another option might be to copy his autobiography and sell that, unless permission is required and declined.

                        Are 3D printed things more brittle than the real item?
                        Forrest has already publicly confirmed that he retains the rights to his autobiography in the chest and does NOT grant permission to the finder to publish it.

                        • What if the lead searcher wants to go but can't yet. What if lead is waiting for ????
                          what if lead has vehicle problems hmm. What if lead wants to be sure sure for sure. What if lead has all the bananas and rabbit holes and tc location mixed up. What if lead wants confirmation on 1 thing no one else thought of. The way I see it is the "lead" is cautious and wise. And probably has an imagination that is playing tricks on him or her. What if lead wants 10 more possible locations "just in case". That person has I'm guessing 25 to 50 spots to check. How would us mere mortals understand the lead. What if lead is good at thinking but missing the hints that supposed srapbook, doodle, 6 questions. Heck if it we're me I would have been out to hiddy spot couple times by now. LEAD SEARCHER GO GET THE PRIZE F#&@ WORK, FAMILY, AND RESPONSIBILITY. What are you waiting for some secret junk email account to magically appear like some parlor trick. Whateves sorryazz wimp(bad word that starts with p).

                            Or the lead is geedy and wants ALL the bananas. I hate greedy ppl. But not in treasure hunting, you go on with your bad self.

                            • Actually does anyone think that the lead has seen the location or even done botg. For all we know the lead has already been out there and something may have happened to prevent the end of the chase (snow, mud). Or the lead maybe in jail or at a facility. Who knows. All I know is I'm ready for this one to be over and maybe FF started a new one.

                                Have faith in a legacy that uses bronze boxes as figurative form. You want to move on- how are you restricted here? What would move your main objective forward?
