Featured Question with Forrest Fenn and The Thrill of the Chase Treasure Hunt: Contrary

thrill of the chase treasure huntForrest, you’re different. Are you willing to admit it or do I have to point out a few things?

Mary Mary

 

Well Mz Contrary,

I don’t think I’m much different than most other people, but I wish I were. Who wants to be like everyone else? I watch men walking down the street in big cities wearing their copycat coats and ties. They all look just alike, like a bunch of penguins in a Macy’s parade.

I’ll tell you some habits that are ideosrancric of my nature and you decide if I’m different.

I can’t spell or punctuate, but that probably doesn’t make me much different. Maybe a little.

About mid-morning I need an astringent fix, so I head for the frig and look for something to sip. I like any kind of olive or pickle juice. Jalapeno pepper juice, yes, but I have to be careful. Worsecheshire sauce is good, but just a slight sip, certainly not a swig. That one takes training. There are others too, like Tabasco, but just a lick off the back of my hand. All I need is something to space me over till lunch.

Afternoons about 3:00, I need a salt fix. It’s hard to find salted peanuts anymore. The label says salted, but they really aren’t. Pretzels are good while I watch Fox news and get the straight skinny about what’s happening in our government. With salted things you have to drink a soda or beer. Water doesn’t work.

After dinner I sit and reflect on chores I was supposed to do, but didn’t, like take the trash out. I try not to reschedule those things because that’s tantamount to admitting I’m lazy. Other times I review the things I did, but shouldn’t have done, like forget to feed the ducks.

Life can get complicated if I get carried away so I try to let things smooth themselves out. Those things I can do in capacity as supervisor of my household, In that light I doubt that I’m different from most people. f

    Copycats.
    I like pickle juice and tabasco sauce too.
    And water just doesn’t work for me either.
    Still waiting on the fox to show me the straight skinny.

  2. OH Yeah! The search season has definitely started.

  3. LitterateOne says:

    All,

    Seems more like a rhetorical posed by someone very close to Forrest. (wink)

    I’m starting to think the treasure is hidden at the grocery store.

    Ideosrancric? Certainly spelling challenged on that one!

  7. nmc says:

    Will Mary Mary be “pointing out” her observations?

  8. Jdiggins says:

    Well that’s two Mary’s countered with a divorce and a contrary…..
    Oh what does it all mean??? Snort snort. Getting pretty spicy round here!

  9. Strawshadow says:

    Thank you Jenny and Mr. Fenn?
    Quite contrary Mary.

  10. cynthia says:

    Forrest, If I told you once I’ve told you a million times to drink margaritas with salt on the rim like I do. You’ve got the lime juice as a quasi-astringent, and you’ve got the salt to lick from the rim for your salt fix. Slap a slice of lime on the edge and you can call it a health drink and use it as a food group. Cheers!

  11. Sparrow says:

    I really like that logic:

    “What did you do today”?
    “I forgot to feed the ducks”. 🙂

    Thanks Forrest and Jenny.

  12. OH! says:

    🙂 🙂 🙂

    Mr. Fenn I am sorry to be the one to tell you this, but if you crave , you have a vitamin B deficiency. 😥

    Oh the ties that bind…and the contagious gray arenas of expensive condiments and snacks with their secret ingredients.

  18. JC1117 says:

    Hello, All.

    I reckon I’m not the only one who thinks this featured questyun is…uhhh…different.

    I intentionally misspelled Questyun because I had an idea to create a new snack food to give Funyuns a run for their money. Questyuns will be similar to Funyuns…but different. Instead of being shaped like onion rings…Questyuns will be shaped like question marks. The flavor of Questyuns will be a secret recipe of 9 herbs and spices. The flavor will be unique enough that when people put Questyuns in their mouths their first thought will be…”What the?”

    I’ll guard the secret recipe like Colonel Sanders…with an entire brigade.

    Indeed…the entire world will be flooded with more Questyuns…than answers. :/

    But seriously…I can always tell when I’ve had too much astringent when my lips start getting chapped. If I have to put on ChapStick every few minutes then I’ve REALLY overdone it. Next…my ears might start to ring. Then I KNOW I’ve had too much. The next step is the vision in my right eye gets a little blurry…even though my left eye is fine. Then I REALLY know I’ve had too much. There are a few more steps…but I’ll save y’all the time. LOL!

    • JC1117 says:

      That was strange. I thought all I did was hit enter to start a new “thought” and my comment posted.

      I didn’t think I was done…but the gods must have thought differently. :/

      Thank You, Forrest and Jenny…and Mary Mary.

      Mary had a little lamb,
      And some Worsecheshire sauce…with minty jam,
      And some salty nuts in a Coke…to make it fizz.
      Now oh how sick our Mary is.

      Btw, I’ve always called it Bestershire sauce. 🙂

  19. SL says:

    Had me at pickle juice, (punctuation too), but if you add olive juice to that list; looks like you’ll have a drinking partner.

  20. ROLL TIDE says:

    Wow, the way I see it, f just gave everyone the answer to the meaning of two clues in the poem and no one has mentioned this anywhere.
    They are subtle and very clever but, there are definitely answers to two clues in the above .

    • anna says:

      Roll tide – are you brave enough to state your answers to meanings of two clues in the poem?? Would enjoy hearing your input. If you’re brace enough to share with me, I’ll go out on a limb with poem info too.

  21. 23kachinas says:

    I try looking for labels with Sea salt and Himalayan salt (84 trace minerals). Tastes better when it’s not so processed like table salt.

  22. Lifesablaze says:

    I like salted peanuts in my Dr. Pepper.

  23. ROLL TIDE says:

    Lifesablaze, haven’t heard from you in awhile, how’ve you been ?
    Hope things have been working out for you.

    • Lifesablaze says:

      Thanks Roll – spring brings new beginnings and a new home. Almost a year on the road. I am ready to set up home base, provision and get my but out there searching! Hope you’re well. Be safe everyone.

  24. JC1117 says:

    Forrest certainly is different…but in a Good Way…I think.

    We would do well to follow his example…I reckon.

  25. Zaphod73941 says:

    I just figured people would see the Worcestershire, Tabasco and Fox, and exclaim WTF?

  26. Mindy says:

    Everyone is different, in their own ways. We all got our quirks and quacks. What is “normal,” anyway? And why would anyone want to be black and white, when there are Skittles?

    Mary Mary Contrary sounds like a winner. She probably eats sprinkles on her vanilla ice cream.

    Forrest didn’t forget to feed the ducks. He reflects on the stuff he did (like not to forget to feed the ducks. Maybe he feeds the quackers, crackers, like Saltines. 🙂

    Thanks, Forrest and Jenny!

  27. BartT says:

    I don’t think Mary Mary was a winner, sounds more like a pain. The March of the Penguins is one of the coolest movies. Black and white are the color spectrums most classic and elegant colors.

  28. Evan says:

    Interesting post Forrest.

  29. Lifesablaze says:

    Maybe Mary needs to prepare her garden for a cold dry spell.

  30. Mindy says:

    Tabasco and jalapeño are pepper sauces.

    Despite being “different,” it’s all still salt and pepper. We are all humans, different skins, unique but similar at the same time. We all have heart and soul. 🙂

  31. Iceman says:

    Name them Roll Tide. Or just name one.

    • ROLL TIDE says:

      WATER DOESN’T WORK.
      Water has no job.
      Water is unemployed.
      Water is not employed.
      Water is not used.

      A beer will work.
      beer=alcohol= moonshine = bathtub gin, whiskey, firewater, red-eye, weak point(point of weakness, figure it out), blaze, blink, song and dance…

      I’ve talked about this over and over, anyone who’s taken the slightest interest in some of the things I’ve said over the past several months will recognize what I’m getting at.

      He needs a fix (how many remember that word?) around mid-morning, and then he needs a fix about 3 pm.
      I have practically screamed the word ‘fix’ for almost a year now.

      A fix is a ‘shot’. So, what do you see ?
      I see a double-shot.
      I see two shot glasses in a silverware drawer.

      And for those who asked, no, I will not just come straight out and tell you the answer to this.

      • Lifesablaze says:

        Yup

      • anna says:

        Also in past blogs and poem plenty of ff references to gin, gin and tonic, stills, moonshine, his little “juniper fire” which may be another ref. to gin. I have numerous ideas of where the treasure “lies” but unsure where it truly sits. Could be the end is a rum barrel encasing the treasure. No idea if ff has chemical dependency as he seems to imply in this post. All in all just confusing to me.

        • Sparrow says:

          Anna—

          I seem to remember a quote where Forrest says that once a year he fixes himself a Martini so he can remind himself why he doesn’t like them. Just thought I’d throw that in there.

  32. Iceman says:

    Anyone who can pick out the two clues from Mr Fenn’s contrary write up … knows the location of the treasure (my opinion).

  33. BW says:

    The nursery rhyme Mary, Mary was thought by some to be a political statement. Reading Mr. Fenn’s comment about watching Fox news for the skinny on our government has me wondering if we are to make a connection and if so, why?

    • Jonsey1 says:

      The Trumps are related to the Heinz family. Though Im not saying its necessarily related to the posts of late. Just random knowledge. With a worcestershire twist for those into politics.

  34. Muset says:

    Somehow lazy and ducks are resonating with me right now..

    Many people have a target they want to search.. where is the threshold between a foolish enterprise and a plausibly successful expedition? I’m thinking it is no sooner than May.

  35. Snider says:

    Mary Mary
    Boy those girls can sing. They have a way of getting the point across. The lord will bless you. After you are a blessing.
    Thanks Jenny
    Thanks Forrest
    Thanks to everyone who post on this blog. Great reads.

  36. Iceman says:

    Thanks for the effort Roll Tide. I was expecting two different words if you knew where the treasure is. Best of luck with the path you are on.

    • ROLL TIDE says:

      I’ve never said I know where the treasure is.
      And, I didn’t say that is all I see in the above post.
      But, your comments are interesting.
      Do you see two clues in the above, and if so, does that mean that you know where the treasure is ?

  37. Inohury says:

    Wonder what the batteries are for? The moonshine?

  38. Lifesablaze says:

    I think we are getting a real-time chemistry lesson. I don’t think Mr. Sloane would be happy with the stuff that’s being sprayed in the skies these days.

  39. Madesquare says:

    I can’t spell either. And my epic struggles with autocorrect are like an episode of Battlebots.

  40. OH! says:

    Worsecheshire or Worcestershire ??

  41. Lifesablaze says:

    Worse Cheshire

  42. anna says:

    Roll tide, is the treasure chest at the Betty Ford clinic? Ha!

    • ROLL TIDE says:

      Ha ! Ya never know.

      One thing that seems obvious is that a redneck from Texas who just lost his job, would know what unemployed means.

      unemployed = idle(halt), inactive(halt), fallow(unused, halt), lazy(halting, lazy also used above), at anchor(halting, anchor=put in), fixed(chase that one, means halt and nailed-down, plus many more interesting words), held back(halted), limp(halt), loitering(halting), and many more.

      Water doesn’t work.

      Yea, surely I’m just insane in the left brain by associating the word unemployed to that, and it’s merely coincidence that pretty near every synonym of unemployed takes you to the word halt.

      Water is not employed.

      I’ll have a double shot of firewater.

      • ROLL TIDE says:

        Or, just make it a Dos Equis.
        I normally don’t search for hidden treasure but, when I do, I search somewhere in the mountains north of Santa Fe.

  43. Mindy says:

    Ducks and penguins….

    A bunch of penquins in water is a “raft of penquins,” but when water won’t do, a bunch of penquins on land is a “waddle.”

    And The Young Americans performed in the Macy’s parade dressed like penquins (all 60 of them) in the 1991 parade (I think 1991)…

  44. Iceman says:

    Roll Tide … When I first read the Contrary post from f, I saw nothing. But when I read your post, I looked closely and found two words that matched my solve, in a very subtle way. Until someone actually finds the treasure, I would not say I know where it is. I’ll say this … don’t be surprised if you find a Dr. Pepper can or a beer can next to the treasure chest. The word “can”appears three times in the poem (can, canyon, scant). BTW the word “can” is not one of the two words I had in mind. That’s just icing on the cake. Remember f hid the treasure in one afternoon. His fix would have kicked in the day he hid the treasure. Good luck.

    • anna says:

      The word “Canada” can be parsed out of ttotc poem stanza one. Spanish translation yields interesting meanings:

      cañada
      1 (barranco) gully; ravine; (valle) glen
      2 (Agr) (camino) cattle track; drover’s road
      3 (Latinoamérica) (arroyo) stream; (terreno) low-lying wet place

    • SL says:

      Iceman,

      I’d also be on the lookout for a can of Grapette.

  45. Lifesablaze says:

    And The Ducks just made the Nationals. Hehehe.

  46. Jeremy P. says:

    A famous art collector is walking by a feed store one day when he notices three ducks in the window, swimming in a bowl. He does a double-take and can’t believe his eyes. He knows the bowl is extremely old and valuable, so he walks casually into the store and offers to buy the ducks for $1 each.

    The clerk replies, “I’m sorry, but those ducks aren’t for sale.”

    The collector says, “Please, I really need those ducks. I’ll give you three dollars each for them.”

    The clerks says, “Sold,” and hands over the ducks.

    The collector continues, “Hey, for an even ten dollars I was wondering if you could throw in that old bowl. The ducks are used to it and it’ll save me from having to get a new one.”

    The clerk says, “Sorry, buddy, but that’s my lucky bowl. So far this week I’ve sold thirty ducks.”

    • Sparrow says:

      Nice. 🙂

    • Jeremy P. says:

      Three explorers set off on an expedition to be the first to arrive at the South Pole, only to find a thriving civilization when they get there. The chief of this community told the explorers, “We have but one law here. Don’t step on any penguins.”

      The explorers looked about them, seeing penguins everywhere. It was almost impossible not to step on one. Sure enough, almost immediately, one of the explorers accidentally steps on a penguin.

      The chief passes swift punishment: “For your crime, you must marry one of our ugly women!”

      The very next day, try as he might to avoid it, a second explorer accidentally steps on a penguin. Again, the chief arrives and forces him to marry one of the tribe’s extremely ugly women.

      The third explorer observed what happened to his fellow travellers, and not wanting to be forced to marry an ugly woman, is VERY careful of where he steps. He manages to go for months without stepping on any penguins. One day, the chief arrives with the most beautiful woman he has ever seen, and tells the explorer that they are to be wed immediately.

      The explorer turns to his new bride and says, “You are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. I wonder what I did to deserve being married to you?”

      The woman replies, “I don’t know about you, but I stepped on a penguin.”

  47. Lifesablaze says:

    Ha! Mindy I’m at a cafeteria for brunch and a bus load of kids just came in behind me. The Rocky Mountain Children’s Choir. There are 60 of them and they just serenaded the line with “Put a Little Love in Your Heart!

    • JC1117 says:

      That would have been fun to hear, Lifesablaze.

      I sang in the Utah Valley Children’s Choir when I was in 5th and 6th grade. The choir was part of the curriculum at American Heritage private school. I learned a lot there. Great school.

      I sang first soprano. :/ We even performed in Symphony Hall in Salt Lake City.

      (Clearing throat and speaking with a low voice) That was a LONG time ago. LOL!

      • Lifesablaze says:

        Haha! That could be why you like and appreciate music now. I don’t think they offer choir in public schools anymore.

        • JC1117 says:

          Hello, Lifesablaze.

          I think most…if not all…of the public high schools here in Utah have at least one choir. My daughter’s public high school has a several choirs all the way up to the Concert Choir…which is mostly seniors.

          I do love music. It fills a void in my soul and adds depth. I listen to lots of different types of music. Of course…many genres of music I don’t listen to…and I know little about.

          Music helps me to feel alive.

          That video makes me wish I was going Treasure hunting…which, unfortunately, I am not anytime really soon. Hopefully in the summertime. I guess there’s a very small chance I might make it to Fennboree…but I’m almost certain I’ll be up to my ears…12+ hours per day…in a project at work by then.

        Good morning pdenver,
        I’ve been wondering if and when someone would make that connection.

        Here’s something else to add flavor to your very impressive catch-of-the-day…

        “Other times I review the things I did, but shouldn’t have done…”
        Confession.

        Read it all again, there’s more.

        Have a wonderful day. You too SL. You two are the best.

        • Jdiggins says:

          Interesting, Roll. I get ‘confession’ from a line in the poem.

        • pdenver says:

          Good morning, ROLL TIDE. Nice catch you’ve made. Hope you have a wonderful day, too.

          • ROLL TIDE says:

            More from a word-nerd…

            ‘holy’ = warm.

            Holy waters ‘halt’ in a ‘font’.

            font = black-and-white, amongst many other tasty morsels. go check it out, I think you’ll like what you see.

            • pdenver says:

              Not sure how you made the connection of ‘holy’ = warm.

              • ROLL TIDE says:

                If anyone here has the means to share that with pdenver via private message or email, please do so.

                • pdenver says:

                  No one has my email address. I may have to continue to think about how you made this connection.

            • anna says:

              It’s crossed my mind many times that ff may have placed indulgence at his “church” in the Rocky Mountains…where he came to the end of himself and personal realization dawned regarding how precious his family and friends are. When monumental illness like cancer strikes, just to live one more day in the love of family and friends is a treasure for which you would surrender all earthly wealth. Precious are the moments we share with those our hearts love deeply.

            • Jonsey1 says:

              Would holy waters coincide with a virgin bloody Mary? Because the first thing I noticed was that his morning fix is exactly how I make a true from scratch Virgin Bloody Mary. Minus the tomato juice in f’s description leaves him with a “Virgin Mary” (no blood/tomato juice). Its the old school recipe…I had many old guys come in the bar for nothing but that. Ppl don’t make me like they used to. I imagine it was hard for him to leave a little celery salt err…lemon pepper out of the equation. I learned a lot about drinks being around those guys. Thanks for reminding me to tip one high and to the sky for the ones that aren’t around anymore f. Cheers.

    • Sparrow says:

      pdenver— Very good point. “I’ll tell you some habits that are ideosrancric of my nature and you decide if I’m different”.

      The strange word (ideosrancic) draws you away from “habits”—but that does match the “penguins” just above. Good eye!

      Gosh, thank you so much for your kind words. I hope you know I consider you likewise, my friend. You have a good heart in you, and I know others have seen this, too.

  52. Buckeye Bob says:

    Forrest, how many years did you work on this?
    15 doesn’t seem like enough anymore.

    • Passenger says:

      Yup… and I hope you are organized. The thing is, I’m guessing that Forrest thought it might be solved too quickly and so added in a bit of spice along the way. Trail and Poem mojo. Bluff, Bluf or a bluff? Like life, only the experience in totality realizes perfection.

    “…I need an astringent fix…”

    astringent = sharp = quick.
    I need a quick fix…

    quick-fix = catholicon, answer, solution, recovery, and dope.

    A mid-morning fix and a mid-afternoon fix.

    Astringent = by the book, correct, cracked, firm, green, strait-laced…
    F’s first paragraph above is a perfect description of ‘strait-laced’.

    My crazy brain suggests that maybe someone has a good solve but, as BW pointed out above, it probably rates a B- at this time.

    • anna says:

      Roll tide, your posts are clever. Thanks for sharing. The conundrum for me is how could anyone possibly know for certs if Forrest is throwing out hints or simply helping his readers understand his personal philosophy. If you can answer that question…you must be fenn

      • ROLL TIDE says:

        anna,

        Everything I post is nothing more than my peculiar way of looking at things. I’m really screwed-up when it comes to that, I analyze everything, not just those things connected to the chase, I mean Everything.

        It is either a life-long passion for playing chess that causes this or, it is this, that created the passion for chess. I’m not sure which is the case.

        Anyway, all I say is nothing more than my opinion. The nice thing about Jenny’s site is that we aren’t required to say that after every comment. We are all adults here and therefore we know this already, without being told.

        I don’t see hints and clues in everything but, I do indeed analyze every bit of it and if I think I see something then most of the time I tend to comment on it.

        If anything I say sparks a thought for you, then go for it. If it doesn’t, then just keep in mind that it is nothing more than the thoughts of someone who drove all the way to Dallas right before Christmas because Santa needed a bit of help delivering that one-of-a-kind American Girl doll. She had the very curious name of ‘Number 33’.
        The tears of joy rolling down the face of a six year-old girl on Christmas morning made every single mile worth the trip.

        There’s nothing like a little magic, to get things done.
        All it takes to believe is a bit of imagination.

      Left-brain thinking would put a B- at clue #6, with F being the beginning where we start, and A being retrieval of the chest.

      F, D-, D, C-, C, B-, B, A-, A…

        Rolltide, as you analyze Everything, I overthink most things and take apart words to minutia. My confusion is often self induced. It’s very endearing that you would drive so far to make a little girl happy at Christmas. We live in the DFW metro area, if you ever need me to do some shopping for you let me know. Thanks again for the creatively perceptive ideas you share here. My next trip to search New Mexico will be predominately a fun trip for two best friends. My treasures are my friends and family .

      Hey RT, I was serious about the vitamin deficiency……. Don’t know about the B- stuff.

      • ROLL TIDE says:

        BW,
        Yes, I know you were. I even researched it a bit after reading your comment.

        Then, my funny way of seeing things told me that deficient means short, or minus.
        So, a vitamin B deficiency could be seen as a B-minus.

        To me, that seemed typical of the clever way that Forrest likes to hide things right out in the open.

        How’s the weather down home? We had no winter to speak of here, 75 and sunny tomorrow. I’m lovin’ it.

          RT, Mz Daffodil and Mz Redbud tried to start the party early and Mother Nature slapped them back into place. So, the word for weather is fluctuating. Thanks for the nod.

    Did ff have purpose in his misspelling of “ideosrancric”? If he did…what is significant? A few ideas:
    Id – identify e,o’s
    Ran cric – a creek that once ran, now dry

    Just thoughts.

    I prefer cranberry or grapefruit juice.
    Interesting that he said: “admitting I’m lazy”. Seems like he is saying the chest is not in as remote a location as most people think.
