A simple solution

A simple solution
This is my first thread
I have been lurking this forum for a little while to see if any headway has been made on deciphering the poem in an attempt to verify any of my solutions.

I enjoy puzzles and riddles and just like House I have no feelings or interest regarding the cache if there even is one, just the riddle.
Knowing the author seems to be paramount.
I recently viewed a movie “Ready player one” and I believe the solution process would be very similar, the author of TTOTC motivation was to be remembered and his accomplishments acknowledged just like the movie. I recommend the movie to any chasers. Hopefully Dal Nietzel doesn’t turn into IOI’s Nolan Sorrento(lol).

I have a few different solutions that may be helpful to a new searcher or possibly even a veteran (doubtful), I will be posting them one at a time until I run out of ideas.
This seems to be a better way than waiting for news to verify a solve and I would love to help anyone, even if it’s just a spark of imagination, to safely search and enjoy his/her trek.

This is solution 1

FF will tell why does he have to follow someone elses rules.
Ok why do we have to follow ff rules
By not massing with his poem.
How many times did forest change the way ff wrote the poem.
This poem can be rewrote in other ways to take you to the same place within a few feet from the TC.

Great solution, logical well researched and thought- out. It is a simple take on the poem. Many threads I've seen recently are quite complex. Impossible to know at this stage what is correct.

As they say it's as good as any to date until the chest is found. Crazy to see how many things can be made to fit this poem, but i suppose that was part of the intention. Leaving out a HOB and blaze of course is troublesome. But, it's a nice solution.

RE: A simple solution
Really good solve. Let me throw you some ideas about poem. Found the blaze, build a fire; melt the blaze, it was poured/fired/built. Hint of riches, meaning subtle illusion or ref. to riches. One important one: nfbtftw is telling you that at this point if you walk, you've gone too far. Your there, it's almost over, you've been wise and looked directly down and it's almost over. He asks us a question and we must know the answers. Leave the trove, leaves. Trees, ax, hew. What's cold? If you can't reconcile "two can keep a secret if one of them is dead" then it's wrong. It is the second best litmus test to a solve. I have to thank CrazyFamily for unsuspectingly pointing me in the right direction from an old comment.

Love it! Keep up the great work, @House!

Very refreshing for this site to get back to the chase.

RE: A simple solution
Did you know obsidian blade edges can reach as little as a single molecule thick? Some medical specialists still use them for this property.

I know that because I researched it for a book about Mesoamerica, not just because I wanted to perform ad hoc surgery on friends and neighbors.

Nice one. Well done. Porcelain Basin and Obsidian Canyon are interesting. Looking forward to reading your other ideas/solutions.

Did you know that guys who buy hookers are called John's and that candy corn was only made once, 65 years ago. When I fall, I fall backwards. Bet you didn't know that J ):
