I started off treating all 160+ counties equally likely. When I was finished there was one clear winner. I used 3 different methods to rank the counties. The same county came in first every time. Park & Fremont counties in WY run a distant second and third, in that order. There is no confirmation bias. All counties were treated identically. If my starting area is incorrect it is because Forrest employed large scale misdirection which is entirely possible, but I'm guessing he didn't do that.

Keep in mind that EVERY theory is ONLY as good as the assumptions that went into it. When your starting assumptions are based on Fenn's statements, it becomes even sketchier. Just my opinion - after 35 years of research.

Meanwhile, I got chased away from my search area by the bear again yesterday. The darn thing startled me while I was trying to be quiet. Then I stirred up a rattler on my hasty exit. Think I'll stay home for a couple of weeks.

I'm going with speculation and hope

Hey Bet, ever notice how when you walk into a room and turn on the light, all the cockroaches run around like crazy? Well, that just happened over at the Battered Men's Shelter. The cockroaches are scurrying!

Even if you knew where it is it still gonna be difficult to find,ive always said that and ive been working on this almost 7 years and even if i felt i had the right spot i would never be the one to say im gonna find it or i got it all figured out thats just foolishness, people just dont understand the woods and its vastness that's all!

Hey but it makes for great conversation and crow eating contests doesnt it keep up the good thread here its why i still come back to read it once and while!

heyoka if private land is involved id be pretty sure u need to look somewhere else!

Thanks Jac, I also believe people need to understand what they are getting into, and sugar coating the reality doesn’t help anyone.

"Keep in mind that EVERY theory is ONLY as good as the assumptions that went into it. "

"methods to rank the counties."

So is the assumption that the location, the name, or both in regards to the counties is significant?

I'm not seeing how counties will help since they can be changed, renamed, or removed altogether within the next 1000 years.

Could you remove all names on signs and maps and still find the treasure and Fenn said yes is something of a quote I can remember.

RE: This Seasons’s Braggarts
"The last sentence you wrote seems nonsensical and would make the poem impossible to solve. The capitalization of Brown makes the statement sound false. The only way it'd be true even with taking Brown out of the equation is if there was a singular warm water defined within the context of the poem which branched out to many end points (the Gulf of Mexico tributaries theory). Otherwise, you'd need a map with names or a more detailed map with temperatures."

Not true, see the Charlie Brown theory.
I'm sure there's other cases.
If you think it makes the poem impossible to solve, then its likely you are thinking of HOB in completely the wrong way. Most people probably are, hence no chest yet.
Let's not forget, by the time you are at HOB you are BTOG and not in India or on a computer.
I'm 100% certain HOB is the part that requires imagination, that a kid could help solve, but that's me. I don't believe Fenn gave people the easy way out by having it refer to Brown Creek or Brown Canyon or Brown Farm. (Of course excluding any reference to any person named Brown as that would be "specialized knowledge")

No, looking for a rock formation that looks like Snoopy or Charlie Brown. Or rock layers that look like Charlie Brown's shirt. Something along those lines.

How often do you think Fenn has driven or (as a kid) been the passenger in a car driving up and down the Rockies? How often do you think his mind wonders?

HOB will be discover while driving and using one's imagination in, around or through the correct canyon down. Not on a map, not on the internet, not with BOTG. At least that's my theory.

Which is the most likely scenario?

That an eccentric man hid a million dollars of his money and:
1) Gave us the exact name of something to go to or
2) Gave us the name of something he's labeled, in his mind, using his own imagination

what if Brown was the temperature and water had nothing to do with where you begin though?

you sound like a specialist
