    Thanks once again to Jenny and Forrest for providing us with more “Weekly Words”. I know these sentences are fun, but sometimes I think Mr. Fenn might be giving us too much. I wouldn’t want to see the thrill of the chase come down to a “door prize”.

  2. Mark J says:

    It’s all about the poem.

  3. John Renner says:

    My wife says I get to go hunting this year!!!! I love in Ky, so it involves plane tickets .

  4. Belle says:

    Well, this is what comes to mind…Forrest has kept me entertained along this treasure hunting journey. By the way, I am enjoying the Weekly Words, Jenny.

  5. Carolyn says:

    Thanks Jenny and Forrest! I love this one.

  6. Iron Will says:

    Yes sir. I’m disappointed though. I really wanted that to be an anagram 🙂

    • Muset says:

      Maybe it is…

      don’t let logic distract you from the poem = result of trying method too complicated

      • Spoon says:

        Amazing, Muset! That actually works!

        • JC1117 says:

          I agree, Spoon. What are the odds of THAT?! Very slim I’m sure…and I should know. I used to BE real slim. 🙂 Now…it appears…I live in a world of fat chances! 🙂

          BTW, Spoon. I heard you ran away with a real dish…


          …while a little dog laughed…or something like that.

          • pdenver says:

            Hello JC1117. Thank you for the DIY video. My sister can whistle like those shown and I had always wondered how she did it. Oh, I’ve tried not knowing how to, with no success. Now that it’s in my head, my family is going to wonder what the heck I’m trying to do tomorrow. They’ll probably standby with a paper bag in case I hyperventilate. Blue is one of my favorite colors. lol

      • Iron Will says:

        how did you do that Muset? a program?

        • Muset says:

          I have been practicing for a couple of years now. Because there are so many source letters, it wasn’t too difficult to find something quickly. Of course my anagram is just a joke. I don’t think there is a message in an anagram of this week’s words.

          • Spoon says:

            I agree, Muset, that it’s probably not an intended anagram. But the fact that it works out to such a good one and that you solved it is amazing. Many years ago I put together a little anagram “solver” on Excel. It is not really a solver, it just keeps track of letters used and left as you try to test different solutions yourself. I find that there real aren’t any good programs to solve a long one like this – there are too many options if you include every possible word as part of the solution. That’s why I’m so impressed with your solution. Congratulations!

  7. I always enjoy the weekly words , this week they really ‘hit home’ !!!!

  8. 23kachinas says:

    Forrest thought of everything, sure would be nice to know what he was thinking. Bystanders don’t say much but sometimes they step up when the timing is right.

  9. Wendy Jo says:

    Things that make you go hmm….

  10. JC1117 says:

    Interesting. There are a great many things in life which scream for our attention…which make it difficult to hear the things that whisper.

    Sorting through life’s distractions into keepers and culls is a skill that takes a lifetime…and very rarely seems to be mastered…


    Also, logic is a poor tool for discerning matters of the heart…but it certainly has its place.


    Thanks again, Jenny and Forrest.

  11. PL288 says:

    Sounds like something Fenn would say to Spock. LLAP

  12. SL says:

    Logic often confuses me; no secret there. lol

    HOB = Brown Dwarf Stars in Space – ( There’s also a telescope up there with the name… “WISE”)


    • V10.4 says:

      I too would be interested in knowing more about his offer.
      Odd that he doesn’t have some sort of challenge stating. I Forrest Fenn will pay X amount for lost property upon return. Although I do recall someone saying he would give a small amount.

    • JC1117 says:

      Hello, Monkey and V10.4. If I was fortunate enough to find Forrest’s Treasure then I would honestly just give His bracelet back to Him with no expectations, whatsoever. Hasn’t Forrest done enough already?

      The monk picture made me think of the Christ in the Desert Monastery there in New Mexico.


      It takes some serious devotion to live like that. I couldn’t do it. I suppose I’m a little too rowdy for that lifestyle…but I have sincere respect for their work and their message…which is Peace.

    • George says:

      JC1117 – you said:

      (Hasn’t Fenn done enough already? And that you’d give him back your bracelet).

      I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, we pay for our thrills. As I see it 65,000 went out looking for his gold, all of them had some thrill but Forrest had more thrill then all of them combined, vicariously living through each and everyone of them.

      I don’t feel like I’ve given anything away. The person who finds that chest will have earned it.

      • pdenver says:

        Hello George. Mr. Fenn had placed a turquoise bracelet inside the treasure chest, but wishes he had kept it because of the sentimental value to him. If you found the chest, would you return the bracelet to him, knowing this? Or, would you keep everything, including the bracelet?

        • George Mason says:

          Sir or Mam, if I find that specific treasure you’d never hear or see me again, I’d disappear into the Ozarks. No one would be the wiser, unless a generous offer was on the the table I would not speak to anyone about it. And yes anyone includes Forrest Fenn! If Forrest really wanted that bracelet he could go get it any old time, heck he said last week to people magazine @ 85 he could go right to the spot. I’m not even sure the motherlode is still out there so this is all conjecture, fun to think about from time to time.

    • Little Joey says:

      Buy is a very general term. He doesn’t think anyone will get into his squirrel nest.

    • Jess says:

      I don’t have time to read daily posts, my server is constantly polling the three blogs to collect daily posts. I found this weird ordeal from along time ago.

      A man heard that I wanted the bracelet back and asked that I deposit $50,000 in his bank account to assure that I would be an honest man when he found the treasure.

    • I’ve heard through the grapevine of a 100,000 dollar offer for that bracelet, anyone know more? I think some forgot a zero. Ho Ho Ho and a bottle of rum 22 men on a dead mans chest.

    • Jo says:

      Seems like stalling without a proper offer, perhaps doesn’t want ppl to know

  13. Spallies says:

    Did you pick the picture of the map?

  14. HollyfromMN says:


    I found the Omega that tells me which Brown. I can see Tahre’s face if I zoom out of Google earth. I can also see a sow’s ear, and I found an old map which has old houses on it. Marvel is a horse, and the ones we are interested in are Fjords. There are two Richards. There is a Mr. Old and a Mr. New. The chest is in Ro Mo. No of San Felipe? North of the territory called Santa Fe, on a 8.25 mile hike. Put in is a rafting term. Water connects the families. Some water flows south, some north. Meet in the middle. Omegas are horse shoes, and a person. It’s impossible to trace his great grandfather’s line- and there’s a reason for that, I think. What do you all think of my ideas?

    • 42 says:

      Holly, you have interesting thoughts. I’m curious to see if I can chase down leads on two Richards and a horse named Marvel. What did you mean about Fjords?

  15. HollyfromMN says:

    And, I believe his relative is Westley, the running man. My husband recognized his face immediately from all those commercials. Since the dates are off, the only way to prove that is with a lock of hair! Well, who knows if I am right. I got stuck in one of the mirror areas that the poem seemed to be referencing. So I went three times to look for it. The last time by myself. It is NOT on private property, it is where you can pay to prospect for gold, though. I might get there before I die, but probably not. I was sure before, and so… If you see a treasure hunter, go for it.

  16. HollyfromMN says:

    *Are. If you are a treasurer hunter…. Oh yeah, and the “*” means calculated relationship in genealogical study, doesn’t it.

  17. Onuat says:

    Jenny, I see you saw the Alien,s. Good job,zapping them back to Mars. 🙂

  18. astree says:

    One of the interesting takes on these weekly words is that the skip 5 technique gives, starting with the first letter


    and skip 6 give a related


    and more so, as one of Forrest memoir chapters relates to his jobs while a youth at Yellowstone, the skip 6 also yields

    … TOT(E)M CAFE YS (“wise” / Yellowstone)

    which is where he worked and was the home of brown …. gravy.


  19. JohnR says:

    without that distracting logic – focus on the poem? Cuz Logic distracts you from the poem? So the poem maybe be solvable if you are illogical?
