Featured Question and Weekly Words from Forrest Fenn: Neither

forrest fenn treasure poemDear Forrest Fenn,

    As in mine, Sir. Thank you for the Weekly Words Mr. Fenn, Ms. Kile, and The Count. I could sit there like “The Great Thinker”, all day… and I Might have to!

  2. LMN says:

    Reminds me of some of my -best- memories. To return, again, is not as special as the honeymoon of the very first experience and the company you enjoyed. What do you think about “that,” f?

    • Snider says:

      I don’t know why it takes me so long to understand.
      You are ever so right.
      Nothing can replace those memories.
      But, their is nothing wrong with many special memories in the same general location.
      Thank you!!!!

    .
    Thank-you, Forrest and Jenny,

    An interesting 24 words. Need to ponder on the meaning of a “hidden location”.

    • DPT says:

      Exactly astree! Hidden, that is a clue. Remember Forrest said to us that he did not want to say the chest was buried because he didn’t want to give it as a clue ( paraphrase). But he did say hidden. So hidden is then a clue.

      Hide means to keep a secret. Secret is to hide or separate. To separate is to divide. The great divide? Hmmm
      If you have a secret you already know the answer.

    • Joe says:

      Yes, an interesting choice of words. In the past, Forrest has used “hidden” when referring to the chest but, to my knowledge, this is the first time he’s used “hidden” in conjunction with its (the chest’s) location…. Probably just Forrest throwing guano against the wall to see what sticks. πŸ™‚
      Stay safe.
      Joe

    • Kedar's Mom says:

      Astree,
      I see whoa Kedar in your puzzle! lol! : )

  4. DPT says:

    Thanks Forrest, Jenny and the count.

    Interesting to me is how a person can be blind, but adapt and then be able to see. That’s what I have to figure out!
    Right now I am just blundering about trying to find the hide.
    Hmmm??

  5. Indy says:

    I’ve got a new, extremely vivid location…
    Gotta wait 2-3 months until I’ll be able to search it though… for reasons beyond my control.
    Just a little more patience is required, I suppose.

  6. Jake Faulker says:

    Thanks guys,
    So it’s a hidden location……
    That’s what I figured.

  7. cynthia says:

    Ah, “hidden location”…Valle Escondido…Spanish for “hidden valley”…12 miles east of Taos off Hwy64 (the Enchanted Circle.) One of my favorite search areas.

  8. Bailey says:

    Thanks Jenny, Mr. Fenn, and The Count. Very strong weakly words. Love em.

  9. JDA says:

    What stuck out to me was first of all “Count” One definition of COUNT is Important. Last week Forrest used Mark, and this week Count – both = Important.

    Second, what struck me was that Forrest is saying, I believe, that when the TC is found, the finder does not need to take it to Santa Fe so that Forrest can see it. He will know who found it, and when it was found.
    Just the mutterings of an old fool. Good luck to ALL searchers, and TRY to STAY SAFE. JDA

    • Strawshadow says:

      How could a person not go to Santa Fe and share a moment with Mr. Fenn? That would be mandatory, IMO. And your no fool, IMO.

    • nmc says:

      On your second point; I think it would be very disappointing to the finder if Mr. Fenn didn’t want to meet with him/her.

      • JC1117 says:

        Hello, All. I can’t fathom the finder not wanting to meet the Master Mind. Imagine enjoying a priceless commodity with a newfound Friend …Time.

        But time is a mortal experience…and only available for a limited time…or while supplies last. After that…the sky’s the limit. πŸ™‚

        BTW, I loved playing that game, Mastermind, when I was younger. You had to get the right colored pegs in the right order within a certain time frame…or number of tries.

        I should probably go back to playing that game…or Canasta. My mind has gotten very cloudy in the last 20 years. I could really use a refresher course.

        Thank You, Forrest and Jenny and Count.

        And…uhhh…Count? Won’t you tell me how to get? How to get to Sesame Street? πŸ™‚

        Sorry. Couldn’t resist.

  10. Strawshadow says:

    Thanks Jenny, The Count and Mr Fenn, If it’s in your heart it’s there to stay. As seen through another set of eyes, how could one not be so bold and so vivid. I guess it all depends on how, why and when you look at it, life I mean.

  11. inthechaseto says:

    Me too – Forrest – me too

  12. Diggin gypsy says:

    I see no hints in this answer hidden location is the same as he always has said . These questions are getting more and more uninteresting the thrill is dwindling.

    • Seeker says:

      DG, This is full of hints…
      eyes = tight focus of the word that is key. But we don’t need to see it.
      And of course the Questioner name must be a hint, right? We need to count something… or maybe the Count doesn’t really exist.
      Mind = memoirs, so we need to put lemon juice on the page to reveal the secret codes.
      Contents of the chest has to mean something inside in important. Right?
      Ok ~ my fun time is over… I’m gonna go along with your view on this one DG. Oh! Sorry Count… I know you’re out there somewhere in Chaseland.

  13. Mindy says:

    Super great question and answer. Thanks Forrest and Jenny!

  14. OH! says:

    At times, our minds Back Off, but not with Mr Fenn’s, he has a mind more sound than an elephant. I can respect that.

    Tea Tangent

    Since I stopped drinking coffee a couple of weeks ago I have come to appreciate tea. I’m not sure it will help me but I feel healthier which was one of my goals.

    • Buckeye Bob says:

      Yes, I’ve improved my health too. And I have a renewed desire to keep doing it. No matter what else, I’m feeling good enough to try to get the ol’ spirits dancing again.
      This is a “win win”.

  16. Timothy A. says:

    Forrest, Jenny and the Count also LMN
    First, Thank for another GREAT answer… I need not ponder nor seek the valley below the questions when asked
    always give the answer I know…Just another one that confirms that I can’t see the forest for the trees

  17. Joe Sparrow says:

    I really enjoy these weekly questions and answers. I think I need to take heed, and really
    concentrate more on what is being said. I don’t know about you, but exploring the poem,
    and looking at each word is really increasing my intelligence. πŸ™‚ At least I think so anyway.
    Thanks Forrest, Jenny and The Count.

  18. JDA says:

    Just a couple of more thoughts. The full question is:
    Dear Forrest Fenn,
    If you could only see one of these two things before you pass on what would it be, your special place where you secreted your treasure chest or the chest and it’s contents? I hope my question is not to bold. ~The Count

    “pass on” = to undergo or complete successfully: – “. What has someone completed, or is about to complete – successfully?

    ” to bold” – Grammatically it should have been “TOO bold” – shouldn’t it? So I assume that it was deliberate. – To BE bold or: “(of a person, action, or idea) showing an ability to take risks; confident and courageous.”
    Question? Does a searcher need to take risks, be confident and courageous? Forrest has said to go forth with confidence, but he has also said that where the treasures is secreted is not dangerous. What do we make of this possible contradiction? – JDA

    • Chesney says:

      It would probably be as big of a mystery as the ball of string, or yarn, that disappeared from his room!

    • Strawshadow says:

      Once again, every word has multiple meanings, one muddled word may bring about an assortment of misfits. The other night I looked up in the sky and wondered what if a sweet tooth might lead to a wise blaze of note. Maybe not here but there is a balance which may point the way. IMO.

    • Thomas says:

      Those are words from the questions by someone calling himself The Count, not Forest, I don’t think they mean anything to the location of the treasure unless The Count is Mark and Mark is Forest? Wait a minute, I think I’m on to something!!!

  19. HeadedDown says:

    Mr. Fenn,
    Did you happen to make a deal with your special place, like the deal you struck with that special place with the waterfall in Vietnam? Just askin’. Horns up. πŸ™‚

  20. Washaufizzi says:

    Jenny,
    I truly admire the dedication and spirit of transparency that you hold yourself and your website to. I am a big fan. I do have one request that may be able to be satisfied over a period of time. Would you mind at some point (maybe over the winter) revealing which responses are ones that you can confirm were forwarded to Forrest. An idea would be adding quotations or an * to those that you are aware of. We are at a slight disadvantage when trying to interpret his comments. Obviously, if it is confirmed that the question came from a forwarded email or list, it affects whether the question itself is seen as a layered clue or whether the answer carries more weight. An example would be people going on and on about LGFI being from India and some significance to India. In all probability, since LGFI was suggested by the questioner (you), India has very little significance. That may be a bad example because most are well aware that you posed the question, but I’m sure we could all benefit by having the privilege of information on the majority of responses. Again, please do not take this wrong. I am a fan of your transparency and how you operate your site. I cannot say that of some, as some information gets delayed and not everyone’s posts seem to make it to the public in a timely fashion, if at all.

  21. Plato ll says:

    There are no clues to be found in his response unless he has also written the question. Forrest is just responding to the question. Everything he says needn’t be a clue. Anyway, there are only 9 clues and they are in the poem. Clues get you closer to the TC. He has repeatedly said he will not give out anymore clues. Hints are another thing, he has said that hints will help you with the clues (paraphrase) but will not get you closer to the TC. Do you think he writes his own questions?

    • JDA says:

      My guess is that it is about 50 – 50. When Forrest wants to get a particular piece of information “Out There” I am sure that he formulates the question and answer to meet that end. 50% of the time, people have asked interesting questions, and he has answered. How do we know the difference? We don’t. and in most cases, I would say that the answer to that question does not matter at all. Forrest saw a need to put something out there, and he succeeded. JDA

    • Washaufizzi says:

      Yes Plato, hints and clues are definitely 2 different things, at least 85% of the time. Lol That is something that is lost by most people that get wrapped up too much. I also am of the opinion that most of his responses (that are of any type of confirmation) deal with things other than the clues. However, there are some very crafty 1’s that are directly dealt to the left of those that are all in.

  22. Mike Forni says:

    Thanks Forrest, Jenny and Count,

    In addition to the above, I notice that Forrest goes out of his way to say his “eyes”. All he needed to say was “I don’t need to see it again”. No reason to add the word with my “eyes”. How many I’s in the poem. Should I Count…? Hmmm…

    Just an impression.

    • Washaufizzi says:

      I Like Mike!!!!

    • Chris_ASD1018 says:

      Perhaps someone sent him a photo of the spot…just a thought.

      • HeadedDown says:

        Or 2 drawings. One of the area and the other of the treasure chest.

        His answer sounds like it’s related to his appreciation of art. And how he needs to do more than just see it, but maybe touch it.

      • Mike Forni says:

        Thanks Wash!

        Perhaps our “eyes” should be “tightly focused” on the “drawings” in the book?

        Hmmm… And so the world turns. πŸ™‚

        • Mike Forni says:

          Have you ever taken a 3 year old to a restaurant? The only thing they understand is “drawing”….. Am I drawing nigh (closer)?

          Hmmm….

          • Washaufizzi says:

            Sigh, Oh me, Oh my, I can’t get that arrow out of my mind. What state do you live in Mike? I’m tempted to relocate (Lol). I’m bordering on moving back. Fortunately, when I lived close to the Rockies, jargon gave me somewhere solid to start.

    “Friends, Romans and country men, give me your ears! To bold or not to bold, that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler
    to heed what one does not completely understand, or to simply count on one’s own intuitiveness–alas, these are questions only the gods can answer”. –Plato’s cousin Wilma

  25. Snider says:

    Wow,
    It is amazing to me how fast people forget things around hear.
    Just on his birthday he said save your best smile for when you open the lid.
    Now basically he says don’t bring it to me, I do not need to see it.
    I think Forrest knows it will be found, and there is a searcher right on top of it.
    I am stuck in between a rock and a hard space.
    I wish I could help you Forrest.
    But I have to be patient.

  26. JL says:

    It seems that some think Forrest to be hinting that someone has neared the end, this has been going on for months with no end in sight, maybe the next millennium. There are many ways to interpret today’s words. First Forrest is satisfied with his memories of his spot, and he has no need to return as if they have said their goodbyes and looked deep into each others soul so that they may forever be remembered as they were last seen.

    The next part is he is passing this place on to someone who has found or will find it and knows it for what it is. He has made a gift of this special place to those who can find it and cherish it as he has so they may go to the special place whenever they need to.
    Thanks, Forrest

  27. Joe Sparrow says:

    Snider—– To be exact his words were:

    β€œSave your best smile until after you raise the lid.” f

    And I gave them a shot. But I’d rather go to Enterprise. But I feel your pain.

    • Joe Sparrow says:

      Snider—

      Sorry about that—just kidding around, and being as weird as I possibly can. I think you may be
      right–sounds like someone is close.

      • Snider says:

        Joe
        can you tell me were he said,
        I gave them a shot, but I would rather go to enterprise.
        I know I am not as fast as others, but I can not find that being said by Forrest. I know I read it somewhere, but not from Forrest.

  28. Joe Sparrow says:

    Snider—

    As I said above—just trying to be weird. Forrest said nothing about Enterprise or giving a shot. He did
    mention giving your best smile before you open the lid—-which lead me to believe there may be a camera
    in the chest, or something that alerts him it is being opened. πŸ™‚

  29. Joe Sparrow says:

    They’re called Duracell Gold.

    • Chesney says:

      And they last 6 years? Did they even have them 6 years ago? Give it a break. Almost as bad as the folks who think it has a curse or a bomb in it. Sad!

      • Joe Sparrow says:

        Duracell gold last ten years. Unfortunately the camera takes blurry pictures of those with no sense of humor, so don’t bother removing the lid. πŸ˜‰

  30. DPT says:

    Lid and Eye. Eyelid.

    An eyelid is also called a clamshell. A clamshell is the tail of a jet airplane. It winks link in TTOTC war for me.

    A dragon fly is a needle. Eye of the needle. Hmmm.

  31. Ramona says:

    Whoot! Whoot! Featured Question and Weekly Words. I’m a happy camper. Well I’m happy anyway, just wish I was camping. Thank you Forrest, Jenny, and The Count. Now what to make of it? Because I know there has to be something to make of it. I better read everyone else’s comments because I got nuttin or sumthin…maybe. What business is it of yours what I got? Seriously, he doesn’t need to see either again? That’s cool. Carry on.

  32. JohnR says:

    Needs and wants. Needs and wants.

    • Spallies says:

      Yup…. I still believe he would WANT to see his bracelet… needs and wants…. “Neither” “In there”…

    • Strawshadow says:

      You could be right JohnR, but that’s like showing a woman a picture of a wedding ring and she replies that she loves it. Now does she mean she loves the picture of the ring or, more importantly, the meaning of the ring itself? I think someone will need to understand not just the word meanings but also the emotions that inspired the words.

      • Spade says:

        I think the emotions that inspired the words are the backbone of their meanings.

        • HeadedDown says:

          Poems are words that draw emotion. Anyone find any gesturing towards emotion from the words in the poem?

          Was it a constant emotion, or life cycle of emotions? Directions and. Directions and.

          • JL says:

            I found it to be reminiscing, which is an emotion but I have no idea how to label it

            • HeadedDown says:

              I think the same for the book. πŸ™‚ the poem I don’t know. I read it one way feel like we all gonna die and it’s over and frustrated no mo. Read it another way and think we got a chance for this guy to live eternal. Read it another way and I’m driving down hill through a canyon or something like that, then parking and walking somewhere out there. Waiting to look down at something that freaking winks. πŸ™‚

  33. Onuat says:

    Forrest,
    Would you a least accept the bracelet,which is rightfully yours. I think that would be the right thing to do. It wouldn’t be right for the finder to keep the bracelet in my opinion .
    Shake. πŸ™‚
    My father turned 87 on the 24th and he too thinks he’s 13yrs old. What’s up with you guys. Old school, I guess.
    Always looking forward to next Friday. Thank you Jenny,the Count and Forrest.

  34. litterateOne says:

    All,

    Quote from My War for Me:

    Why do the yellow and purple flowers flourish where no one is there to see? The answer is at last obvious to me. No one has to see what is there. The grass sees and the trees and rushing waters of the spring creek also see. What has made me think that I had to see the beauty that is there in order to confirm its existence?

    LitterateOne

  35. Joe Sparrow says:

    Onuat—

    My 46 year old brother still thinks he’s 26. And his 13 year old son acts like an 86 year old in a child’s body. He’s smart as a whip — whatever that means. 😁

  36. Lou Lee Belle says:

    Thank you Jenny and Forrest! And I just want to say Forrest Thank you for being born! You have been a great teacher to me. I see the way in as a very hidden and secret place, It may not look like much from the car…..and we would be surprised! How was your birthday Forrest?

  37. Chris_ASD1018 says:

    “…hidden location…don’t need to see them…”
    “…lumbered along feeling our way…”
    “…sometimes it is wise for the fox to dress as the hound…”
    “…The grass sees, and the trees and rushing waters of the spring creek also see…” (Spring creek may refer to both the season and “spring fed”)

    MUD http://mysteriouswritings.com/featured-question-and-weekly-words-mud/

    Piecing these quotes and MUD together, I believe Mr. Fenn is hinting that the chest is hidden in or around a fallen (possibly petrified) tree and that he packed the chest in mud so it would blend into it’s surroundings.

    Solving the poem and finding the chest at the hidden location are two separate actions that one must take…some might refer to the double Omegas side by side here…the end of one omega leads to the beginning of another; it is at the end of the second omega that one will find the chest. But that person will have to work for it, patiently, systematically and thoroughly, to ensure the possible hiding spots in this small location are eliminated (or validated)…

    • astree says:

      .
      “Solving the poem and finding the chest at the hidden location are two separate actions that one must take”.
      I’m not completely following this comment, Chris, based on Forrest’s words that, if you solve the poem, you can walk up right to it, or words to that effect. Do you have any additional comments (understood if you don’t want to give any more detail).

      Thanks,
      astree

      • Chesney says:

        Chris, you are so spot on, that it is scary, IMO. I believe the searcher will spend a great deal of time looking in the general area. I believe it is in something that will withstand the test of time for 1000 years or more. Already been there at least 6, and I believe personally 13 years! πŸ™‚

        • Anna says:

          Chesney, how sad for Fenn’s family to worry about their personal safety for years longer. Why wish for 13 more years of daughters and granddaughters wondering if they will be abducted by a weirdo.

          • Chesney says:

            I hear that Anna… what I mean is that Indulgence has been there or was going to be where she rests today since 2003. When he stated his mind only being 13, that was what he was talking about. There have been a lot of crazy people, and I suspect that he will be happy when it’s done.

            • Anna says:

              Right Chesney,, I pray for my friends and family daily and have included the Fenn family’s safety as well.

              • Chesney says:

                He had one guy recently stalking one of his adult grandaughters in Santa Fe. He was a Spanish Fellow with a nickname of Paco, from what I remember when I read the article. Sounds like those girls need to “pack some heat”! πŸ™‚

                • JL says:

                  Everyone should, it would make for a more polite society. I know some rednecks who can show people like Paco the errors of their ways and be more than happy to help out.

                • Chesney says:

                  I heard that, JL. I am one of em, Paco would be a “Jimmy Hoffa Taco”…
                  Pigs eat anything! Poor Jimmy!

      • Chris_ASD1018 says:

        I don’t mind sharing, as I’d like this to be located AND retrieved.
        Action 1) Solving the poem: will take you to the location.

        Once at the location, the focus shifts to

        Action 2) Identifying/finding the chest

        Searcher must focus on identifying/finding the chest…it won’t look like the chest in the photos…it will have been camouflaged, with mud and, perhaps, stones. The chest is not buried…it is hidden. How is it hidden? I believe it is in a crevice of some sort. I do not believe it was set in a hole in the ground and buried, per se. Rather, it was set in a crevice and smeared with mud and, perhaps a stone or two were placed in front of it, from view. This would make Mr. Fenn’s statement, “…if you solve the poem, you can walk right up to it…” accurate and truthful. BUT, one could also walk right up to it and not know it if the chest were disguised to blend in with the surroundings.

        It may take two, or more, trips to the hidden location to identify the chest. I wish I had taken more photos when I was there in July.

        • Chesney says:

          Chris,
          I greatly appreciate you helping searchers. I like the way you think. If you look at the 2 lines of ye poem, do you think it could possibly be in a concrete culvert? He always said “a redneck”! πŸ™‚ Anyway, I “put in” a heel of a loaf of bread in the river at my HOB where Trout minnows flourish. Having a ball watching them eat it up. This is where I love to “Steal away to in nature”. πŸ˜€

          • Chris_ASD1018 says:

            I am happy to help, if this does. I do not believe the chest is in a concrete culvert, or in any man made or synthetic structure (excluding Mr. Fenn’s entombment of the chest as I described, for those who may want to consider that a man-made structure, of sorts)….focus on the many references to graveyards by Mr. Fenn and even how Skippy was found…Study – as an archaeologist (Like Mr. Fenn) would – the burial customs of American Indian tribes and see if any may fit what Mr. Fenn described as his plan for his final resting place…hope that helps!

      How about this:

      neither = in there

      Now, what if someone sent Mr. Fenn photos of the spot and the chest, camouflaged as I had indicated in a reply to Astree?

      When Mr. Fenn writes, “…Both the treasure and its hidden location are so vivid in my mind that I don’t need to see them with my eyes again. f…” could he be signaling that the location AND the chest could be found in the photos (“IN THERE”) if one new to look for the camouflaged chest?

            Interesting analysis! How do you reconcile your comments with Fenn stating that a searcher that comes within 14 feet will more than likely find it. My interpretation of this weekly words is Fenn’s special place is well hidden and the treasure may not be hidden (although I think it is very well hidden too).

            Thanks!

            • Chesney says:

              Mr.Fenn atated that “he could not imagine someone being within 12 feet of the chest and not find it.

            • Chris_ASD1018 says:

              I believe it was 12 feet, but no need to quibble. Someone coming within that short distance would likely be a Searcher as the location is not one where a non-Searcher would likely find him/herself. The Searcher would then need to shift focus on the Second of the two Actions I described earlier. Too many (myself included) may, in their minds, think of seeing the chest in terms of a scene from a movie, where it is revealed in a more open way with an aura of light around it and music playing as the Searcher/Finder lays eyes on it for the first time. This false image could/has caused some to leave the area too soon, before “…turning over every rock and looking under every log…”. How likely the Searcher is to become the Finder depends on that person’s ability to focus intently on the task at hand and not become disappointed before that last log is looked under…going forward with confidence should give the Searcher that resolve to stay focused, but it’s just not that easy.

              Oh…one more thing…geography has changed a bit…and those “newer” logs may be pretty large and tough to move by oneself.

              Not sure if I answered your question, but it felt good to get that off my chest, so thank you for asking.

    Time,
    Why do you punish me?
    When the directions are figured out, and one has learned to be content with there life. We must still find the time.
    Oh, by the way happy birthday you 86 year old young stud!!!
    I hope someday I can learn to teach as well as you have.

    It’s really quite simple. Following the clues leads you to the blaze. When you correctly identify the blaze look downstream and you will see two clump of small pine trees (tarry scant…….pine tar……small pines). From there look in the area immediately between those small trees. There is a circle of river stones set into the ground that cover an area made of small boards that measure 11x11x5.

    • Snider says:

      11x11x5 feet or inches????
      This is very interesting to say the least.

      • Snider says:

        Brady,
        I don’t live to far from your search area.
        I would love to team up with you and complete my search.
        Is it still an option to meet you there?????
        The search season is not over, yet.

        • Brady says:

          My 3400 mile journey is complete. I spent an incredible time out on the search. The key for my solve was my interpretation of “look down” and what my “marvel gaze” of the “tarry scant” needed to be. The fact that the river rocks and vault made of small boards was at that location made it all the better. The key to remember is that the successful solve of the poem HAS to lead to a very specific location. Any solve that doesn’t lead the searcher to an area of just a few square feet of searching is an incorrect solve.

          • Snider says:

            Well
            Thank you for the help.
            It’s nice to know that when someone needs help in this day and age there is a stout hearted man that will give the help that is needed.
            A big thank you from, HAS!!!!!!!

    Thank you Forrest and Jenny,
    I feel honored that my question got answered. Interesting response but what comes to mind now is we know how you feel about your needs when it come to the chest and it’s location, how about your wants?

  42. Joe Sparrow says:

    Whatever he WANTS, Forrest NEEDS restful time alone. Keep away from that
    computer sir! Limit it to two hours a day at least. πŸ™‚

    The poem has been solved!!! My spot was wrong, I was 110% sure too but was 110% wrong. The question is, did I come out of their with something to treasure? Yes, yes I did, my memory of that crazy adventure with two friends from Missouri to New Mexico. THE REAL SOLVE; ” As I have gone alone in there and with my treasure’s bold, I can keep my secret where, and hint of riches new and old”. ( The first four sentences mean, THOUGHT’S and DREAMS.) “Begin it where warm waters halt and take it in the canyon down, not far, but too far to walk, put in below the home of Brown”. ( The next four sentences mean, HEART and SOUL.) ” From there it’s no place for the meek, the end is ever drawing nigh; there’ll be no paddle up your creek, just heavy loads and water high. (The meaning for this, one word DEATH.) “If you’ve been wise and found the blaze, look quickly down your quest to cease, but tarry scent and marvel gase, just take the chest and go in peace”. ( meaning, This part means to look at YOURSELF and EXCEPT WHO YOU ARE.) ” So why is it I must go and leave my trove for all to seek? The answer I already know, I’ve done it tired, and now I’m weak”. ( This part Forest tells you why he had to lie to you about a treasure chest, it’s because he could tell you till he’s blue in the face to go out and enjoy LIFE and LIVE LIFE, but would you of, if he didn’t sweeten the pot? ) “So hear me all and listen good, your effect will be worth the cold, if you are brave and in the wood, I give you title to the gold”. ( This means, just hear him out before you judge him, listen, you and your family getting out and enjoying life and living it, is worth the cold hearted lie he has told us. I call it a lie because Forest does to! If you have seen Pinocchio god fary god mother said; BE BRAVE MY LITTLE PINOCCHIO BE BRAVE.) Yes, their iis a treasure out their for all of us, go out LIVE LIFE, it’s to short, Fenn is still alright in my book!!! Thanks

    • Chesney says:

      Thomas,
      There is a very Real Indulgence that is full of everything he has said is in the chest! I guarantee that I can spot a liar from 100 miles away! Master Fenn is not a liar, it is there. .. so go find it and don’t be an idiot! I knew this guy was “a loaded gun”! πŸ™‚

      • Thomas says:

        Now don’t lie Chesney, when was the last time you have gotten out to search for the chest? Or are you just talking nonsense on this blog, look back on your comments in the last week, what does it all mean? Just bull to me, are you any close to solving anything compared to your comment last year? Time fly’s by doesn’t it, all those comment’s and you haven’t got anywhere. What a waste of time and life! This idiot has a life to live. Oh good luck with Master Fenn ten years from now with your comment. LOL!!!

        • Chesney says:

          Thomas,
          Don’t you worry about my results since 5/30/2015 when the wheels started turning. You don’t have a clue where it is, so you take jabs at people who do, trying to get closer. I will tell you that I am in Montana somewhere, within a mile walk of where I believe she rests. You don’t know how it is positioned or protected, so you never will understand! But it is real, and still out there! Don’t slander Mr. Fenn!

    • Joe Sparrow says:

      If Pinocchio hadn’t beleaved he wooden have become a real boy wood he? Who nose where he wood have wound up in the end? Of course the chest is real. The person running a marathon doesn’t care who drops out of the race. He’s too busy looking for the finish line and the trophy.
