RE: steamboat mountain maybe?
Through the mountain, over the woods, under the bridge, to Steamboat Mountain.

Sounds like an episode of Dora.

doodlebug, I recently posted about logic, and will try to use some here.
I don't know how much it will help you or anyone else.

Your above question might logically be soliciting one of the following (in quotes) answers:

"Yes." or "No." or "I don't know."

If someone honestly answers "Yes." , how would this help you solve the
poem?

If someone honestly answers "No." , how would this help you solve the
poem?

If someone honestly answers "I don't know." , how would this help you solve the poem?

I think a serious searcher should ask a more-specific question, that if
answered honestly and logically (even if the answer is brief), helps inform
that searcher of something useful related to this treasure hunt. Even
asking "Who has used this in their solve?" -- and please note my use of decent spelling, punctuation, and spacing -- might not get a useful
answer. Somebody could honestly and logically answer "I have." This
could inform you of the poster's "handle" but not much else. If a bunch
of posters answer "I have.", then perhaps you'd know how many posters
are claiming to have used that item in their solve(s). But even so, how
useful would that information (that is, the number of responding posters) be to you?

I suggest that when you construct a question, you think about how folks
will answer, and what info the answer(s) would provide. For example,
you might want to consider asking something such as "If you have used
Steamboat Mountain in your solve, what did you learn or achieve by this?"

As the end of this treasure hunt seems to be "ever drawing nigh" -- even
if it may be hard to adequately explain how or why --, some people
posting on this blog (and other blogs as *well*) appear to be a bit uptight lately. So you might want to think about not frustrating this type of person, as not all people are easily able to deal [well] with frustration. I read about FF calling the police due to stalking or harassment by someone (perhaps a frustrated searcher wanting to find the TC). Maybe you could tend to avoid/minimize frustrating folks on these blogs. Here are some things that I believe could help you in this regard. In your postings, you could/should

1. Use proper spelling

2. Use proper grammar

3. Use proper punctuation

Doing this shows respect, compared to simply "throwing together" some
carelessly-constructed message. People will be more impressed if they
know that you invested time and effort into being polite and civilized
toward them. If folks think you're an "uncivilized dummy", they might
tend to treat you like one. (At this time, I'm not going to go into a long
description, definition, or discussion about what "uncivilized dummy" means.)

I don't like to assume things. Assuming is, at least sometimes, not logical.
So I'm not assuming that you are serious about finding the TC. And I'm also
not assuming that you are generally incapable of learning to use proper
spelling, grammar, and punctuation in your postings. Motivation to do so, however, is another issue. Good luck to you in your solving and searching,
and also in not being uncomfortably frustrated . . . or uncomfortable due
to anything else. It's good to be *comfortable*.

1. I do what I want.
2. Your logic sucks.(flogic)
3. How does your comment not contradict your own logic?

I'm no ecdysiast, but this could be the best post/reply on any blog in the history of mankind.

Hey Doodlebug,
Me and my little team, or should that be 'my little team and I' (sorry AJ) have given Steamboat Mountain some love. It has some potential (IOO - In Our Opinion), but would require a visit to flush it out a bit.
