Katya- Here I AM, again. Somewhere north of SantaFe in the stormy Rocky Mountains. Metal detector is useful for poking around those dens, little caves, crevices and tall grass. Walking stick with blasting whistle and compass, helpful for keeping snakes at a distance, whistling away bears and battle with Mountain Lions.

Not Obsessed- As we were walking toward Firehole falls, we found this goose egg next to the road.  It was "empty" just like how my searched turned up.

      • Well, I guess Dal needs to update his list then. Evvvvreebuddeez writin a book.
        Capitalization rules, I guess.
        🙂
        I’d rather find it first…but that’s just me. 🙂

        • I’m publishing a book as well. It’s nothing to do with the chase though, so I doubt anyone will buy it. Although there is a chase scene in the book… if that qualifies. Hey, free advertising would hurt. Right? How many hits is the sight up to 5 mil.?
          with that kinda number I may get a sale or two.

          LOL.

          • Seeker,

            What’s the point of advertising your book on this blog if it’s not about the chase? Even if it is about the chase it’s a hard sell. You would do better advertising on Facebook. Besides, everyone has their own ideas on the chase and not willing to pay for other’s. Can’t say that I blame them. Good luck with your book.

      • I don’t get it, buy a book with no complete solution?
        And you’ve even got the Kahunas to say you’ll provide “enough information to prove your location is the solution”….so where’s the chest big guy?
        I’ll make you a deal, i’ll buy your book when you showm me a pic of an object from the chest placed on todays paper, or even better for you, any newspaper from 2015.

      • F.R.O.G. ? You mean F.R.O.G.S. !!
        Fleecing Relies On Gullible Searchers !!

        I’m not proud to be from Illinois right now. The ghost is in your solution. I’d buy it to distribute to everyone else here for FREE.
        A solve that might yield the gold won’t be shared. If I had the treasure in hand, I would not even want to share my solve because the monetary gain would disappear…

  1. I believe I’ll wait to publish a book until after I find ff’s treasure. Not counting those golden hens eggs 00 prematurely.

  2. Everyone has a story. So everyone should pay $21.95 to the person on their left. That should be about what everyone’s story is worth. The treasure is still safe. 🙂

  3. Everyone is working on a book except me! 🙂
    Who is going to buy all those books, I wonder?

    I just bought a pristine new copy of ttotc and noticed it was a fifth printing of 3500 copies. Were all the printings 3500 copies?

    • Hi Deb,

      I have looked and looked for an answer to your question about how many copies – there is really IMO no way to tell other than to ask the author. No one at this time, keeps track of that info – some have tried to – but it is never correct. My copy, which I appreciate from you, is fourth printing and does not say how many where printed.

      I’m with you on not writing a book –

    • I’m considering writing a book about how to write a book on the chase. It will draw from many historical resources such as “contemporary 19th approaches to the formulation and distribution of snake oil” and the “basic how to guide for acquiring and distributing a deed for a New York City bridge”. I think it’s going to be a huge success. It will only be $499 on Amazon, but I think you will be able to get it for $497 with an Amazon Prime account.

  4. Micheal,

    In the art world that is called complimentary lines. I’m sure you know that since you pointed it out.

    Even before I read the caption, it was the first thing I noticed. This photo should win simply for the composition. Especially the fact that the tee pee wasn’t in the middle of the photo. 🙂

  5. Whew feel like I have been all over the Country looking for the chest. I feel like I’m one of Forrest’s great thinkers 🙂
    I’m thinking Wood is not really Wood. 🙂
    Because there is so much of it everywhere I look. Yes I searched the July 4 weekend but I’m not ready for a Crow Burger. Because the summer is not over. At times I think I might have tunnel vision, or I’m in the twilight zone. 🙂

    Forrest I’m not really good at sign language, the picture of u with your hand up to your ear, tells me that it’s a hole and its inside. An opening to something.

    And the picture of you with the map. Let’s see u said your lips were sealed.
    Otherwise if they were not sealed they would be open. 🙂 I think u have to bend down to get inside. It will be dark and cold. 🙂

    The map is upside Down. Hhmmmm

    We had another awesome adventure thank u.

    Reminder: whoever eats watermelon don’t forget the salt 🙂

  6. Over the weekend it rained here and there I felt like we were searching in a rain forest. I started singing ” welcome to the jungle” 🙂 its not fun going thru the woods with water on everything then a branch will slap u around a little and then your wet and cold. 🙂 I should have taken shelter 🙂

    • Hello, Amy.

      May I suggest swapping “welcome to the jungle” for this lovely, little ditty? 🙂

      I’m going to bring some tap dancing shoes with me to New Mexico…instead of hiking boots…the next time I go there. On second thought…if a cop saw me “dancing” with tap shoes he’d arrest me for sure. 🙂 It would be hard to get off the hook I reckon. He’d think I was drunk or high for sure…a public nuisance at the very least! 🙂

  7. Amy, nice that you enjoyed another great adventure. I agree that wood at the final hiding spot may not be wood. Just my opinion, but perhaps in a small copse of pines and then you follow the letters of the poem in pictograph form. So maybe ‘wood’ looks like wo(stop) (at) od (two rocks with a fireplace poker sticking up as a fulcrum lever to move the rock. or Forrest left his old Ford there and the tc is under the rusted out car (home of brown) LOL. He placed his bet on Diggin Gypsy because she’s a go getter, and looks at old things.

  8. Anne. 🙂 I think I have had enough at looking at wood. So I’m going in a different direction with the word Wood:)
    One more search later on. I promise I’m not tease. I keep saying one more time 🙂

  9. @ Michael H – cool photo with the double triangles. Is that a “bobbed” wire wreath at the base of the tepee poles?

      • q1 – you caught me looking at the photos of forrest hoping for clues. I didn’t pay close enough attention to the teepee photo. you have a keen eye for detail.

        • My uncle, a superb professional artist, taught me all about composition and complimentary lines. I liked the photo so much I sent it to him.

          The only thing the photo was missing was the golden rule. Two out of three is awesome. Getting all three is near impossible.

          • Michael, I like your Tao Te symbolic meaning. It aligns architecturally with “void” or Tau Ө which the Greeks used for resurrection and life after death.

            Your teepee or triangle reminded me of something in my notes. The Greek Delta or triangle is symbolic of a home or abode – cool that it matches the teepee and wickiups of the Native Americans.

  10. Now, for the fibonacci spiral…does the placement of the barbed wire spiral complete the composition? Or, am I missing a natural one?

  11. Great pics all! Got to go through mine of latest chase last month near Anzick site and other Clovis areas near Wilsalll Montana. Got lots of red ochre! Forrest, that small town needs a good doctor!
    Heading out near same area next week. €]Peace ¥

    • You gettin jumpy Diggin Gypsy? Takin a gander at yer competition’s photos. Just kidding you! It is fun to see other’s photos. Are you searching again soon? I hope to, but don’t like those Madison rattlers enough to join you there.

      • Hahah lia Nawwww I just like looking at what everyone else sees too I get bored in my down time. I’ll always keep searching Montana with my pokey stick in hand to fling the snakes 🙂

  12. Inthechaseto, where is your pic of the tree with shoe?

    Diggin g and sweettea, one of you has a rather peculiar shadow… 🙂
