Logical thinking is important, and can be helpful.

Logical thinking is important, and can be helpful.
Is there anyone here who isn't yet convinced that FF is a very clever master of trickery? Please remember that a person can be tricky without actually telling a lie or being unethical.

Here (in quotes) is an example of trickery:

"I went to a bookstore and got gas."

Please note that the above line (in quotes) is actually a true statement.
I DID go to a bookstore. (Probably many of you have done this.)

I DID get gas. (Probably many of you have done this.)

Please note that I didn't in my above example claim to have acquired gasoline at a bookstore.

Read the blogs if you want, but please try to use logic when you are thinking about what you read. FF is not the only clever person involved with this treasure hunt.

I agree, and think that most searchers have no idea how smart he is. How many self-made millionaires do you know? He knows a lot about manipulating/outsmarting people, some of whom are likely quite intelligent and shrewd themselves.

He wrote about being "in love" with Yellowstone, and even used the
word "marry" in his writings/postings about solving the poem. These seem
to support a possible connection between the hidey spot and YNP. But
he can't fool EVERYONE (especially logical thinkers).

I can't validly speak for every searcher. I only speak for myself. And I'm
not going to jump down a YNP rabbit hole. My search trip will take me
to a place several hundred miles SOUTH of that silly 43-degree parallel
that has been hyped so much lately; I consider it as just another "rabbit hole".

I don't want to give too much info to anyone who I consider to be a
"serious competitor" in this hunt, but it's likely to be over this summer.

It took hundreds of hours to solve the poem, so I don't think that this
posting will make the difference in leading someone to my search location and wrecking my chance of finding the TC. I don't mind, though, trying to help others avoid spending money on an "expensive vacation" they can ill
afford. Even though this "search community" sometimes (okay, frequently)
has more silliness and drama than seems sensible to me, I don't harbor
any actual hatred for anyone who's a part of this "community".

Regardless of the continued gusher of hints that I believe are from
Forrest, I think he is clever enough to have plausible deniability about
who posted them. In other words, I can't prove that they are from him.

Some of the hints are little teases, and very subtle but telling; I don't
think anyone else (besides him) would use some of the specific words/phrases that I see in those postings.

Okay, enough for now. I hope you all benefit from using logic.

Maybe he had one of those burritos at Collected Works.
