  2. pdenver says:

    Thank you for this week’s Weekly Words, Jenny and Mr. Fenn. I greatly appreciate it. Once again, you give good advice, Mr. Fenn. Thank you. Jenny, I love the photo you have posted. It’s absolutely beautiful. I wish I could find a place like this where I could just sit and dream.

  3. Greetings says:

    That is sage advice. Btw, did you select that beautiful photo, Jenny, or did Forrest?

  4. William says:

    I’m going to assume you use imagination until you get into a mountain area

    These are Great Words from Forrest this week. They make me smile. I can see Forrest now… 🙂


    Nature can be a dangerous place. A man…or woman…needs to know what they can do and what they can’t do.



    Thank You…again…Jenny and Forrest. In Honor of St. Patrick I bid you an Irish Blessing:

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind always be at your back.
    (And in the sails of your Black Pearl…Savvy?)
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    and rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    ” Step on a crack and break your mothers back.” 🙂 Thanks for the reminder,Forrest and Jenny.

    What would it gain a man…woman… to inherit the World only to have lost themselves?
    The End of one mans…womans…Rainbow is the Beginning of anothers and that Beginning is not intended to be the END.
    No treasure on Earth is worth the cost of ones life, that is unless you have a wife?



  8. Lia says:

    Elmer Fudd advice: those not mindin common sense in the mowntains, will be sawy.

    Jenny, the painting looks like a Bierstadt,…if so, it may be a romantic compilation of several places rather than an actual place. I would enjoy knowing who painted it. Thanks for this entertaining post.

    • spallies says:

      I think you might be right Lia… This is what the picture is tagged as: 800px-Albert_Bierstadt_-_Rocky_Mountain_Landscape_-_Google_Art_Project

      It is stunning isn’t it! Did you see the Dear 🙂

  9. Lia says:

    Hmmm…43 characters if I counted correctly. Astree, I always appreciate your keenly intelligent puzzle solving skills since my brain doesn’t work that way, and my logic runs astray. I hope you weigh in.

    • astree says:

      Hi Lia,

      I was looking at that, even the 42 if the “savvy” becomes “saw y”.

      Using the beginning and end of the sentence, I was thinking it might have also been a tease toward Mindy, from the previous February.


      I looked at some different forms of the phrase

      Minding common sense in the mountains is good. Savvy?

      Minding “common sense in the mountains” is good savvy. That looks like a skip 5 letter, and gives NEET ENO / (or ONE TEEN?), or using the entire sentence, the skip 5 can yield


      and some other words

      And, the basic advice is sound 🙂

    • astree says:

      I guess if we cut it a bit differently, the “good sawy” form, could anagram back to

      GOODS WAY (weigh)

      which would tie the 42 letters to last week’s words.

    Foot steps ,in the sand is what our lives amount to but sometimes we encounter rocks that dare. Then we are left to sit and stare and contemplate something with flare….?

  12. Mark J says:

    Always an interesting turn or phrase.

  13. dizzy says:

    WOW!!!! my head is spinning round and round.
    *in a whisper* am I in the “twilight zone”?

    • oneway333 says:

      Hi and good morning dizzy , I feel the same way! although I’m new to the chase I’ve never been to this site before. I stayed up all night reading ALL the post and Man have I been walking in the dark. I had e-mailed a friend of mine a month or so ago and explained the journey to them but I don’t think they understood what I was trying to say.

    • Ellen says:

      Hi dizzy…Nothing wrong with being in Rod Serling’s “Twilight Zone”…but it sounds like you may need some of Forrest’s stash of Extra Strength Tylenol that he requested about 2 years ago when he was “dizzy” with only having one P.O. Box left and his hot water leaked on the cold basement floor.

    • astree says:

      ” *in a whisper* am I in the “twilight zone”? :”

      ” common sense ”

      I tried putting the word “comm” on “sense” – as in rail fence – and the first five letters are

      SCEON. This is Irish for “TERROR”. Found this a bit untoward, as St. Patrick’s Day was a day before these words were posted. Was it whisper comm from the Twilight Zone ?

  14. grateful says:

    Destiny, for who it smiles apawn,
    shall be greeted with a sun, each passing dawn
    because just as time , it shall soon be gone

  15. Bobby says:

    If snowmobile season is in full blossom in the RM’s , then why is it everyone is saying wait to Spring/Summer? I don’t understand , I have read all I can find on Forrest Fenn and he said “if you know precisely where it’s at , then you can probably go get it in any weather” or something to that effect.
    any idea’s?

    • Indy says:

      Searching in the snow is tough work and given the cost of a trip I prefer to use my search time to the maximum benefit and go when it’s easy to drive and then hike to my favorite spots.

  16. Breath says:

    I need to step back and take a break from the “Thrill” for a minute. I’ll definitely be back for next Fridays Weekly Words with decoder ring on hand! Until then , walk in peace everyone…

  17. Tru says:

    Stories are told some misleading and some not some in rhythm some in rime but the best stories told are the ones that are TRUE and make you feel blue

    Electric Light Orchestra
    Secret Messages
    (concept album version)

  19. me says:

    I love ELO time after time is my fav but blue bird fly away is good to. Hell i like the whole dam album! I think people should sometimes take things said literaly….my thinking is the more someone suffers in there live the better they become *does that make any reason* watching a loved family member die is the hardest thing ever . its like divorcing to it leafs a empty place down deep that no mater how bad you try u cant feel it never goes away. that is were compashing comes in to feel the black hole. that do not total work but it shed light so it is not so dark HELL what do I know it is 1:05am in morn and I had a few beers to wash the black hole down haha im use to it I guess if u can get use to maybe just comfortably numb is better shit the beer is kicking in the reason I posted is because I think searchers should keep in mind Mr. Fenns mindsit when he did this. I like no way out song to

  20. Hope says:

    I have been a fan of ELO since the 70’s , this album got me through a lot back in the day!
    thanks Bobby! brings back memories…..

  21. Hope says:

    I forgot “Time after Time” always reminded me of Marching to an Anthem both in beat and word
    a bit ironic I suppose looking back

  22. rod says:

    welcome.. come in, take your shoes off, get comfortable;
    can I get you something to drink?

  23. John Brown says:

    Did Forrest give you this quote recently or is it one of the many he gave you all at once?

    John Brown

  24. rose says:

    common sense is a “”wisdom”” that’s hardly acknowledged.. “It’s the glory of God to conceal a matter, and it’s the glory of a king to seek out a matter””… For the circle of life starts as a child, becomes a young adult, matures to manhood, and returns back to a child . For in humility, the eyes can see, and the ears hear. For destiny is calling my name, and grace is accompanying her. five years, and still, no reply, yet alittle while, the veil will be removed, and all will know that the hand of God moved ALL, every gift, every talent, every breath, every stone, is all in creation and it sings in all matter. For all matter, all substance, vibrates and sings to the tune of a new era where glory will come forth and shine, every knee will bow, all will confess His name… Every smile, every kind gesture, every good will, are a string woven with each good act of goodness, “is a piece of cloth”, and we make our heavenly gown worn eternally and forever more… INFORMATION PLEASE, THE child sings, and I replied, yes, yes your right on track, and all you done Mr. Fenn is recorded in the hall book of records connected with the “sphinx”, the story in the heavens, beginning with the face of a woman, and ending with the body of a lion… IF only, people could hear what I say, IF only!!!!!!!!

      Ecclesiastes 9:5
      For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even their name is forgotten.

      ◄ 1 John 2:17 ►
      And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

    Hi all, I decided to share some more information on my blog about how “savvy” connects to the Sundance and how it is related to The Chase. You can read it here bit.ly/2aTRpxF or visit my blog at http://www.findingfenn.com

    • JL says:

      Read it like what I saw……. I like how your ivestigation led you to places outside of the search area.

      Couple of questions though,
      The banned Sundance Ceremony, is that the one portrayed in the movie “A Man Called Horse”?
      Where did you find the information about the returned Sundance skull and how did it come into f’s possession?
      In your opinion, just how is the Dragon fly going to be compensated?
