    Within striking distance…

  3. Mindy says:

    Thanks Jenny and F.
    All my x’s are justified and lined up. Won’t be long now til it’s overlaid and pounded out. Thank Moses for me.

  4. jonsey1 says:

    Sounds like a pretty cold war. Not surprised.

    • Jonsey1 says:

      *my guess is that this statement refers to a Cadmean Victory. (Victory against oneself) For some reason it reminds me of Pyrrhus words “one more victory, and we are lost” Losing all his troops in poorly executed and ill fought battles against the wrong enemies certainly was a victory for Romes military position.

  5. JDA says:

    Yes, victory will be worth the effort, for who ever it is that finally claims the prize. I, of course, am rooting for some old geezer that has only two working brain cells, and one of those misfires fairly often. Good luck to ALL searchers, and TRY to STAY SAFE ALL JDA

    • Jonsey1 says:

      Nice 23. When Concy was a shop teacher he had his students spend an entire semester trying to perfect a perfectly square cube of wood. Apparently there was LOTS of sanding…and frustration…I imagine by the semesters end there was hardly any wood left in some of their hands. Seems to be a couple lessons in there 🙂

      • 23kachinas says:

        Jonsey1 – It’s amazing how much we collectively know. I forgot about Concy until you reminded me.

        • Jonsey1 says:

          I can’t help but chuckle at how the worst students probably ended up with nothing but a tiny ‘loaded’ wooden dice. Maybe they didn’t get an “A”…but certainly the effort may have paved the way for some victories of probability, at least. Failure. In this case, providing much more victory to an 8th grader than a boring perfect 6” block sitting on a shelf. Haha.

    • Joe Sparrow says:

      23kachinas—– that is a cool youtube video.

      “Victory will ALways juStify thE efforT. f”

    • Point Foot says:

      Thank you 23kachinas. I enjoyed that video as well.

    • SL says:

      23kachinas,
      I am absolutely in agreement. Tesla’s theories and universal thought continues to captivate me! – ( I also posted a relat youtube video over at Dal’s awhile back ).

      I would urge others to seriously ‘study’ the information on the following link: (“Heavy loads, +” might make more sense?):

  7. Chris says:

    Has anyone heard from Forrest? How is he doing?

    • pdenver says:

      Haven’t heard, but I believe he’s doing just fine. Perhaps he’ll post and say hello to everyone and let us all know how he’s doing.

  8. pdenver says:

    Thank you for this week’s “Weekly Words,” Jenny and Mr. Fenn.

  9. Ramona says:

    Thanks Jenny and Forrest for the new words to look at.

  10. Joe Sparrow says:

    May I ask why, why, why there are four “f”s in that sentence? 🙂

  11. Chesney says:

    I laughed so hard when I read this one, the neighbors are probably thinking it is time for the pink helmet, straight jacket, and padded cell!!! Thank you Mr. Fenn and Ms.Kile for the Weekly Words. Mr. Fenn did respond to an email I sent to him recently about a possible artifact, but it was just that he couldn’t open the file… he is Chillaxing as he should be at 86… he deserves it! 🙂

  12. Chase Fan says:

    There is no victory without the try, and sometimes the victory is in the trying. But a victory would be very nice to go along with that try!….Thanks for these WWs Forrest & Jenny. They always make us think. And many here are still making that effort!

  13. HeadedDown says:

    I seem to “always” think the opposite of what others post. Winning at all costs isn’t a good thing.

    • HeadedDown says:

      Sir. Vietnam is an excellent example of this. Hiroshima and Nagasaki are 2 more. Divorced & financially ruined searchers are another. What does this f fortune cookie mean? As always I’m clueless. Still playing canasta by the fire. Tindley winks and such. Its nice being warm. Thanks Jenny and Mr. Fenn. Sir.

  14. Iron Will says:

    Straight from the authority….

    Victory will always justify the effort. f 😀

  15. Pacman says:

    I wish they were all this easy.

  16. Lou Lee says:

    The F Fort. My belief is he had a fort with a blaze…….nearby. A secret get away!

  17. JL says:

    *Victory will always justify the effort. f

    victory = to win battle
    justify = Latin iustificus “dealing justly, righteous,”
    effort= Vulgar Latin *exfortiare “to show strength”

    Do not win battle only to lose the war…………………………………..

  18. Snider says:

    I have learned,
    There are many ways, or things, to justify my efforts.
    What is victory?
    It is not just the gold at the end of the rainbow.
    It is all of the effort that got you to see the colors of that rainbow.
    Thank you Jenny.
    Thank you Forrest.

    Possible connection to current discussion at HOD?:

    Victory…Win…Gain

  20. OS2 says:

    False. Many a victory has cost way too much.

  21. SL says:

    pdenver,

    Please pardon me if I step away from the current discussion at HOD.

    By chance, have you heard of the ghost town, “Buckskin Joe” located in Colorado’s, Fremont County? It was built/designed by Malcolm Brown, (art director), to serve as a movie set for movies which included…. “The Cowboys”… and a possible candidate as the( Home of Brown).

    In addition, the Colorado town of” Canon” also has some rather interesting facets to it! Think “N”

    I respect your opinion, my friend.

    Florence (SB107), and the flag of Colorado, (C), shown on (SB107) on the bent corner of he Five Dollar Bill (referred to as a Fin), a long with those ‘5’ spots, which appear as the constellation of Orion.

    • pdenver says:

      Hello, my friend. I greatly appreciate the information. I had not known of the things you’ve mentioned. Thank you.

    • SL says:

      On second thought, that bent corner of the five dollar bill shown in SB107, might actually be the ‘arch’ found on New Mexico’s State flag! Water high being Watermarks? – Heavy Loads represented by the twisted telephone cord?

    • SL says:

      The Boy Scouts connection? – Hard for me to think of them without thinking of the Flyer.

      http://www.scouting.org/Philmont/Museums/SetonMemorialLibrary/lobo.aspx

      • pdenver says:

        I concur. I think he has a tender spot for children. Wants them to open their eyes and truly see the beauty of things and experience it.

        • SL says:

          pdenver,

          This was the theme I chose for my baby shower. Seems like yesterday:

          Remember?

          https://www.bing.com/search?q=the+greatest+love+of+all+lyrics&pc=MOZI&form=MOZSBR

          SL

          • pdenver says:

            I do remember, SL. It’s a beautiful song. This reminds me of something Mr. Fenn had said, but I can only paraphrase it. It had to do with the children and how things are today and they’re going to be our future. They’ll be the ones to make the important decisions. Teach them well, indeed. I think love really has a lot to do with it. Imagine if love is in one’s heart, wrong can’t come from it. Just yesterday when I went out to lunch, the waitress told us she lived in Wyoming and during that time everyone bartered. She said everyone took care of one another. “Need this? Come on over, you can have it.” She said it’s too bad things couldn’t go back to those times. We agreed with her. Love sure would take care a lot of things.

            • Wayno says:

              pdenver,
              Why can’t things be like that? It only takes a couple of willing individuals to start a trend, I’m ready to try and ante up! I will trade someone my “too far to walk” for “The thrill of the chase”!!! I bought tftw, but have used it, but not abused it. I did not purchase the thrill but wish I had, I heard there was a clue in tftw, “if you could find it”….. I have been looking for but to no avail. I guess I went for the gusto, backwards sometimes I know. But seriously if someone is willing to trade, let’s do it, I feel that the thrill can teach me so much… Any takers?

            • SL says:

              Love is the only reality.

            • SL says:

              pdenver,

              Other than history and stories relating to The Boy Scouts of America, I have found depth in anything….Earnest Thompson Seton.

              My son would have been over the moon to have been blessed with a mentor such as The Flyer, Fenn – One gets a distinct feeling that TTOTC is what Forrest is talking about when he has said to “start at the beginning.”

              SL

      • Wayno says:

        Not far from the Philmont is the St. James Hotel, pretty interesting history there. Frequented by Jesse James, he had a favorite room he stayed in, but I forget which one, going to have to look it up.

  22. GEYDELKON says:

    Well, made to Santa Fe this afternoon. Had a delay and didn’t make it to what I feel is the first clue. Heading south tommorow, maybe a 3 hour tour.

  23. Passenger says:

    “*Victory will always justify the effort. f”

    Remember to keep your eyes open, listen good and ready to be guiled.

  24. Strawshadow says:

    Thanks again Jenny and Mr. Fenn for the peaceful weeklys. And then I read a comment.

  25. Wayno says:

    Victory would be in the eye of the beholder. Look at history of the battles in which the battles were one but the war was lost, mentioned above. My personal battle is a wood pile today that has to be cut and split, I’m glad that pile can’t fight back otherwise I’d get wrapped on the side of the head!

  26. lorna says:

    Your effort will be worth the cold?

    • Chesney says:

      If you are brave and in the wood,
      I give you tile to the gold!

    • Iron Will says:

      Chesney and Lorna, you two forgot the 25th stanza that you can only find with lemon juice and a hair dryer…..

      For those who knew love and want to win,
      You must find your Ex, and wait for reply.
      Stop dwelling on what was said then,
      It’s now under six months… Do or Die.

      • Iron Will says:

        lol oops ….7th stanza……25 of them would be one heck of a poem O.O

      • Strawshadow says:

        Ha ha ha, LOL, Iron Will you got me ha ha ha rofl big time. I just got in and read this, you are one funny guy. Who are referring to, its killing me, find your ex and wait for reply, what are you talking about? It’s do or die? This is funny, come on spit it out, who? Just what kind of reply do you think he or she will get. I’m still laughing. Why would you post this here why not just call them? Second thought I do get the dwelling part, like tarry scant;)

        • lorna says:

          Wonderful view, not far enough.

        • JL says:

          ya hes a real funny guy lol. but i dont get the dwelling part………….

          • Strawshadow says:

            As in timing; to dwell at a certain place; this hurts my rotor cups if I extend my arms at a certain angle; a temporary place of contact creating a connection; stop focusing on one moment in time; a mind blowing abode. All my made up definitions so pay no never mind, some things just can’t be understood.

            • Strawshadow says:

              Your probably safe if your within + or – (advanced or retarded) 4* (degrees) of tdc (top dead center). That is unless a gremlin steps in, in that case I would do a whifferdill and land.

            • JL says:

              That may well be, but it seems more and more I’m starting to get your drift. I’ve spent t much time tracking time, now it is time for time to star t tracking me. The place where dreams and fantasy alike meet.

      • Strawshadow says:

        Skip what I said, I get it, has nothing to do with a couple thing. After rethinking its not very funny but is clever and just sound advice.

      • lorna says:

        Call my ex? Huh?

      • 42 says:

        Not really Iron Will…finding the Ex is helpful only in uncovering the “big F and dele” (correct spelling) at poem’s end to understand f does and our dreams die upon discovery…and without reply.

        (i realize others will not comprehend my meaning thinly veiled in ink here. It matters not.)

  27. djjmciv says:

    What effort? You’re not suppose to go where any 80 yr old man would go right?
    It’s these kinds of comments that get people killed out there.

  28. lorna says:

    It ends where it begins

  29. JDA says:

    As I re-read Friday’s post, “*Victory will always justify the effort.” f I wonder if this was one of the posts that was on Jenny’s pile, or was this one given to Jenny to be posted Friday.
    Although it seems pretty generic, I can not help but feel that there is more here than meets the eye.
    jus·ti·fy
    1. show or prove to be right or reasonable.
    2. defend, answer for, vindicate
    3. be a good reason for.
    4. declare or make righteous in the sight of God.
    I wish I knew the answer to my question. If it is “off of the pile” – there is probably no “clue” here… If it is a new post, there might be more than meets the eye. Just a thought – JDA

    • Buckeye Bob says:

      JDA, go with “be a good reason for”.
      Then read it as this:
      “The location will always be validated by the work.”
      But remember, according to String Theory the chest is anywhere we want to look. Ya just have to be in the right bubble.
      So somewhere in existence, if String Theory is right, you have already found the treasure!
      Congrats, man. 😀

    • JL says:

      JDA, I don’t have to re-read them they just keep going around in my head counter clockwise till I find the location to file them.

      BB, a valid point.

      As for me, effort is directly correlated to ones opponent. When does the effort surpass the door prize is my question.
      I would build a fire under that puppets toes then maybe someone will get some answers here, but that puppet will never talk therefore there is no victory in that effort.

    • lorna says:

      Maybe someone is close and his weekly words as of late, are clues.

      • JDA says:

        Lorna;

        I hope that you are correct – JDA

      • Buckeye Bob says:

        Lorna, I don’t think so. Jenny has said that she’s releasing these things from a package that Forrest sent her a while ago, in the order that Forrest listed them. She said she’d state if a new posting isn’t that case.
        An example of this would be the previous posting titled “Special Featured Question with Forrest Fenn: The First Clue First”, where it’s obvious by the title that this is a separate thing from the normal “Weekly Words.”

        What I think is happening is that Forrest set out a line of “hints” in his package of postings he sent to Jenny.
        From there, lots of us are getting those feelings that there’s something in all that that’s related to previous articles.
        It’s like those ideas on the tip of your tongue, in the back of your head, buried in there somewhere that you can’t quite put your finger on.
        So it just seems that way. I think the reality is (in my opinion) that many of us are very close to realizing the meanings, but we just haven’t quite had the light bulb go on.

        That’s just my opinion, which may be as muddy as a Fenn “hint”. lol

  30. lorna says:

    Will Jenny answer if these are resent words?

    • Stubber says:

      These are from 2015, Jenny has said this a thousand times. If it wasn’t, she would say something like she did last week.

      So no, the comment was not directed at a single person/team. LOL

  31. OS2 says:

    Oh, i think i get it! “Victory will always justify the effort” … Victory (Eunice, Nikki, god-mask of the temple priests, the politician, the profiteer, et al) will always “justify'” (rationalize) the effort spent for a victory that benefits them. FF is making a derogotory statement about those who justify wars — because for the collaterally damaged, (the bigger picture) there is no such thing as a just war. Relates to the mix-up of Hemingway plots in Imp Lit. Wrong wars.

  32. astree says:

    .
    Excellent, “victory will always justify the effort”. It is “finnish” for “Book, conclude, lodge”. What better language for an ending?

  33. Michelle says:

    Everything else makes sense until the wood. Do you possibly mean on the wood?? I get the in the wood part. Just not the wood part. There’s only one thing in close proximity to wood and you’d have to be on it.

  34. Chesney says:

    You don’t really know that you have solved it, until you have Indulgence!!! 🙂

  35. SL says:

    In the Wood; a possibility:
    “Retreat into the timber”…. ( Military order given by a General during the Battle at Little Bighorn).

    WWWH:
    Another possibility: http://military.wikia.com/wiki/Thomas_Weir_(American_soldier)

    War is indeed…..hell ~

    SL

  36. Onuat says:

    Victor victorious !! Or is it Victoria. 🙂
    Hi,Forrest. How you doing? Thanks Jenny,you the best.

  37. IN1564 says:

    I do respect all spiritual and religious beliefs, and I know Mr. Fenn is spiritual (in his own words). Maybe the 33 letters in his words this week refer to victory on the cross. John 3:3 “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” Also, maybe the clay ball means Colossians 3:23-24??
    “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”

    • JC1117 says:

      I think/believe you are to something there, IN1564.

      To Peacefully respect others and their beliefs is a Lofty Ideal…and seems to run counter to “human nature”.

      A belief in a Higher Hand greatly empowers behavior which is beyond our natural selves…

      …which is clearly His intention.

      Matthew 25:40

      And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

    • astree says:

      As Jesus died at the age of 33.
      I had looked at the 33 letters. In connection with the even divide by 11 (“one” “one” in line one of the poem), there is a skip-11-letter sequence in these weekly words.
      Beginning with “R” of “victory” and a second the second “L” of “will”

      (O)RSE LIT

  38. IN1564 says:

    JC, Thank you for sharing those words. I also recall seeing these words: For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
    Thanks again JC. Got to go read more now…good stuff!

  39. Inohury says:

    No need fight the effort alas, it has all become suddenly clear. Much effort applauded, graateful. Over soon. Maybe I can beat the upcoming bid….what we really need is a Royal Flush!

  40. Inohury says:

    Will the mouse sit the palm? cheese!

  41. Inohury says:

    Can’t sleep cuz Bueller how long ago affects us now? Gotta sleep….

  42. Michelle says:

    Can anyone tell me that we are all sure no one has found indulgence yet? Once you solve the poem as I believe I have; seems easy enough for someone to have figured this all out and found the chest. I haven’t been at it for 6 years. Only stumbled on the chase a couple months ago. Maybe I’m being smug.

  43. Point Foot says:

    My experience has been that the chase is much harder than it appears at first. When someone does in fact figure every step out it likely will not have been easy. It would not surprise me if it takes years for a person to completely solve it. But at the end in my humble opinion the solution will become clear and the seeker will walk confidently to the spot and find it. Who and when is the only question in my mind.

  44. lorna says:

    Where can one keep a secret?

    • ROLL TIDE says:

      Where can one keep a secret ?
      Under one’s hat, of course . . .

      • ACE says:

        Hey roll Tide you must be a big sports fan. Do you say the Pledge of Allegiance or sing the Star-Spangled Banner often?

        • ROLL TIDE says:

          ACE,
          Actually, yes, my gson participates in basketball, track, and baseball. Here in our little corner of the world, we still stand, remove our hats, place our hand over our heart and face our flag while some young girl sings the Star Spangled Banner over the p.a. system before each game.
          We don’t always agree with those who lead this country, but we are all proud to be where we are and who we are.
          And we’ll still stop and help you change a tire on the side of the road.

          • pdenver says:

            Hello ROLL TIDE. I may be wrong, but I believe ACE was trying to offer another suggestion to where one keeps their secrets…the heart. What do most people do with the Pledge of Allegiance or Star-Spangled Banner. What gets covered? 🙂

            • pdenver says:

              You’ve stated it yourself in your post. 🙂

              • ROLL TIDE says:

                pdenver,
                Yes, I believe you are correct. Thanks for pointing that out. I’m getting slow in my old age. Today is one of those days.
                My “under one’s hat” will lead you to a scrapbook if you follow it correctly. Don’t recall the number, it’s the one with f and the photoshopped Brad Pitt.

                • pdenver says:

                  Hello ROLL TIDE. I thought it was a duplicate photo of Mr. Fenn. I didn’t see Brad Pitt in that one. 😉 It’s Scrapbook 115 you’re suggesting with the photo of Mr. Fenn and Brad Pitt. Are you sure this is the scrapbook you’re looking for and not another with a hat? Scrapbook 115 has Mr. Fenn and Brad Pitt, and also has the toothbrushes.

                • pdenver says:

                  It’s strange. Just a day or two ago, I was thinking of Scrapbook 115, too.

  45. sMiLe says:

    Coffin. Maybe in art.

    • ROLL TIDE says:

      pdenver ,
      Yes, that’s the one, 115. Couple of subtle hints in that one, in my opinion. Keep it under your hat though, mum’s the word. My lips are sealed.

        • ACE says:

          Now your gettin it pd. The remainder is amped up a bit. But that is why we are all here yes? To play the game! Your kindness is witnessed by many. I have said it once before ” your one of the good ones”.
          Here’s another thought. I remember seeing an interview with Forrest where he says along the lines that many people have touched him and he wishes he could intervene and help but alas cannot. Forrest has lived an amazing life and I’m sure his heart holds many secrets.

          • pdenver says:

            Hello ACE. Thank you for your kind words. I greatly appreciate it. Gosh, I wish I could remember the interview you speak of. I believe, as you, that he has lived an amazing life. I believe the statement of how he’s been touched by many people also goes both ways. As for his heart holding many secrets, only he knows.

      • Passenger says:

        Roll Tide….Did you notice Sonja’s eyes looking to the left?
        -C

        • ROLL TIDE says:

          Passenger,
          City girls just seem to find out early
          How to open doors with just a smile . . .

          She wonders how it ever got this crazy
          She thinks about a boy she knew in school . . .

          My, oh my, you sure know how to arrange things
          You set it up so well, so carefully . . .

  46. djjmciv says:

    You are perfectly welcome to do your own research to confirm, but I just had a buddy take a look at the “recent” picture Forrest uploaded of the chest. Some alarming evidence. He says the picture was doctored. One of the main reasons is that its origin is listed as “Date Taken: 4/1/1887 11:05AM” “Program name Photo Meta Edit 2.1.7” So someone took great detail in covering their tracks with this picture. In conclusion, you can’t trust it’s authenticity. Or maybe Fenn can explain this?

      Perhaps you might like to check out Scrapbook 158 and look under: E.C. Waters, Sept. 30, 2016 at 2:42 p.m. for further information. I’m not sure how your friend got the information that he/she did. I don’t know much about technology.

    The 4/1/1887 date confirms my suspicions that a time machine is involved in the hiding of the Treasure. I have said before it is not “where” it was buried in the Rockies that is important, but “when”. 🙂

    • djjmciv says:

      Another interesting thing to consider is we all know Dal does a lot of photo editing for Forrest. So, more likely than not, Dal has the original photo. And since he knows how to change the meta data he knows how to access it. So Dal has information we don’t have in when the picture was taken. Important clue to rule out when Forrest hid the chest.

      • pdenver says:

        Hello djjmciv. I truly believe Dal posted the photo of the chest as given to him. Perhaps reading Scrapbook 158 and reading what Dal had to say may help with your thoughts.

        • djjmciv says:

          Then someone else edited the photo. The obvious is adding the text, but I was told this ran through an edit and saved three times. Could jewels have been added that weren’t in the original photo, the answer is yes. Since we weren’t given the original picture it’s safe to say we don’t know if what we are looking at is real.

          • pdenver says:

            In the scrapbook, the heading reads “An Early Arrangement.” Mr. Fenn was still deciding what he wanted to place in the chest. The treasure is real. If you want to know what’s inside the treasure chest, listen to the interviews Mr. Fenn has done. He tells everyone what’s inside.

  48. djjmciv says:

    “That photo has not been doctored. I took it myself, years ago, and I don’t know anything about photoshop. No one had seen it until I sent it to dal, and he had no motivation to change anything. There is nothing there that would help someone find the treasure. I am not trying to fool anyone. f”

    Well that is the end of that. Dal has the original photo with meta data that could help him (no nobody else since it’s obvious now he was the one who changed the created date) create a timeline.

    • Evan says:

      I would take Fenn at his word that he didn’t Doctor the photo, but it definitely looks photoshopped by someone.

    • pdenver says:

      How can this photo help Dal? The photo is an early photo taken of the chest. It is not what it looks like now. Have you compared the photo from Scrapbook 158 to the photo in the book, “The Thrill of the Chase”? The date will not help anyone find the treasure chest as Mr. Fenn has stated. Just for the heck of it, let’s say he hid the treasure one day before his book was published. How does that help someone find the treasure? It doesn’t.

    I seem to have a post lost in limbo. I tried to resend it and got a notice that it was a duplicate post.
    Mainly I want to see if I’m locked out by some bug, so here goes this post….

  50. Buckeye Bob says:

    Ok, still can’t post what I wanted to post before.
    I guess the stars aren’t aligned for that. lol

  57. Andrew Jef says:

    “Victory will always justify the effort” looks to me like some kind of a pep talk for military involvement . . .
    perhaps given to soldiers prior to sending them into battle. I think here that FF may be making a subtle
    reference to his feelings about war. He has already told us that “My War For Me” is the most important
    chapter in TTOTC, and I also believe that the path to the TC contains a reminder of the harsh reality of
    war. I have good reason to believe this.
