Sense of Humor: Featured Question with Forrest

smileDear Mr. Fenn, 

Would a sense of humor be of value to anyone trying to solve your poem? ~ Amy H.


Well Amy H, probably not, but a sense of humor might help a few searchers who say the chase isn’t fun anymore. Fortunately, thousands who were out looking this summer had great experiences with their family or friends. Those people always seem to have a sense of humor. f

    I still enjoy reading some of the joys/humor that were found in the hunt and shared during the contest over the summer:

    And then of course all the new ones which come in….

    Thanks again, Forrest, for The Thrill of the Chase……it’s an awesome hunt!

    How could ANYONE think the chase is not fun anymore?
    As for a sense of humor, imo, you need one for life in general…

    I so agree, JD. Life’s not all grins and giggles, but why not enjoy the ride?

    Laugh or cry, Man. Laugh or cry.

    Begin it where…

    Wide World of Sports?

    The thrill of victory…and the agony of defeat.

    There’s more than one way to fall off a bar stool. 🙂

    Left a smile on my face 🙂

    I am still laughing, alone, it looks strange, people are staring. I am going somewhere else now.

    You’re kidding!!! Some people think the Chase is not fun anymore?? Oh well, there is no way to please some people.

    For what it’s worth, Forrest, I am having the time of my life!! 🙂 …Thank You Very Much!!

    You know Forrest I think some people exhaust themselves (they were so certain they new) they allow it to jade them. The whole point is a treasure hunt for adults to make them be like kids again. The real treasure is in the chase.

  10. 😉 🙂 Are you kidding? We had the time of our life! Two old housewifes on a treasure hunt, laughing, hiking the most beautiful country on earth, eating what and when we felt like it. No laundry, no family responsibilites for 5 days. It beat out a spa vacation, and we’re already planning our next search next summer. The only way it could have been better would have been meeting Forrest on the trail!

    Excellent topic for an article in this context.

    I myself love comedy, laughter and having fun. I also think that one of the reasons many people stop enjoying treasure hunts is because they take them too seriously. I’ve been guilty of this myself.

    People have to relax, have a laugh and enjoy themselves. I think a sense of humor helps with everything, and what’s the use of questing for treasure if you can’t enjoy the journey?

  12. Nate Beck says:

    LOL Jolly good! 🙂

    I posted my previous response before reading the responses above. I’m so glad to see that I was just reiterating in my own words what so many have already said.

    I thought that I have a huge advantage over the other searchers given my extraordinary sense of humor (I’m laughing at anything my wife has to say), but Forrest says that probably it’s not the case, and now with the advantage gone, isn’t fun anymore 🙂

  14. Moonshadow says:

    I believe a sense of humor is probably the most important part of searching.
    If you can’t find the humor in searching for a little box in a million mile radius north of Santa Fe, then you probably shouldn’t try.

  15. Ellen says:

    Being able to laugh at ourselves doesn’t hurt either. I know I have done that in this chase, but it is the smiles that I enjoy hopefully each and every day that mean the most to me. The chase is definitely still fun for me.

    As always, thank you Forrest.

    Would bringing your comics to class instead of your reading material be a sense of humor?
