FF after the Fact statements...
100 links = 1 chain

66,000 links = 660 chains (66,000 ÷ 100)

1 chain = 66 feet

660 chains = 43560 feet (660 x 66) = 8.25 miles



Here is Fenn’s complete comment:



"Since Richard mentioned the olden days lets harken to 1620 when universal land measures first became law in England and America. As you rode your horse into town you had to pass 80 telephone poles in order to reach a mile because they were 1 chain apart, or 66 feet. And each chain had 100 links, if you wanted to break it down further. Road rights-of-way also were 1 chain wide. And 80 square chains made a square mile, or 640 acres – and that was 1 section of land.

But if you’d rather count fence posts you had to pass 320 in order to reach a mile because they were a rod apart, or 16.5 feet. And since everyone knew that an acre was 10 square chains (43,560 square feet) it was easy to tell how many acres were in your neighbor’s farm.

Some aspects of those measures are still in use today in the horse racing business because a furlong is 10 chains in length, or 660 feet. You should feel smarter now because that’s so easy.

If you want to apply those important figures into the thrill of the chase I will give you an additional clue. The Treasure chest full of gold and precious jewels is more than 66,000 links north of Santa Fe."

So why are those Figures important? and how would you apply them to the chase?

I'm attempting to make a list of all statements relative to the Chase that FF made after the release of the book, TTOTC. In hopes to get some logical discussion going on the meanings and reasons for those statement. as well as how they maybe interpretative. I would ask that anyone who has a statement they would like to discuss, try and link the Quote for accuracy. Or if others can help as well. I'm sure Santa Fe or Jason, would be very helpful as well as others.

A log hooooo a log whaaaazzzzzzzz a logi FFFFFFwwwwwwwwweeeeeee!!!!!!!Wwwwwwwwaaaaaaahhhh*&^&%!!!!hhhh!!!!! a logica whaaaaa??????????????????



Here's a direct quote of Fenn from the Lubbock Avalanche Journal dated January 7 1969: "My last flight was number 305 on December 22nd". How the hell many flights did he fly???</div>

LOL, too funny. was I asking to much using the word logical.

I was at first tempted to dismiss all this as unimportant to the chase and just more of Forrest's usual aimless banter. However, almost by accident I discovered that there could possibly be an important connection to a line in the poem. Can't tell you which one, or I'd have to kill you so you can help keep the secret. There are only 24 lines though, so it shouldn't take you too long to figure out which one and what the connection is. It could also be sheer coincidence. So I take it with a grain of salt.

From TOLEDO, OH to CHEYENNE, WY in the ROCKIES is 1,102 Miles which is "<b>more than 66,000 links west of Toledo</b>"... 1,102 Miles WEST as a matter of fact 8O



Yet the statement is STILL TRUE...

I think all the statements have truth to them.. ok not all, I don't think every word the guy says is related to the poem... I think most of what he says is confirmation to what a searcher should already know. if you don't understand the statement {IMO} you have missed something in the poem. do you think there is any use to the calculation he presented?

Dang! just put a 16oz. T-bone, Mash potatoes, gravy, with all the fixins including NY style cheese cake topped with cherries for desert and a nice bottle of red wine to wash it all down, in front of us and then pull the table cloth off the table!!

<b>Yes, I think that Forrest wants you to get out of "HIS TOWN" before you start search'in, at least 8.25 miles out of "HIS TOWN" (where he pays taxes for services)... which INCLUDES his IMMEDIATE NEIGHBORHOOD and HOUSE...</b>



If you should think of Forrest 1000 years from now, you can ring his bell...

100 links = 1 chain

66,000 links = 660 chains (66,000 ÷ 100)

1 chain = 66 feet

660 chains = 43560 feet (660 x 66) = 8.25 miles



Here is Fenn’s complete comment:



"Since Richard mentioned the olden days lets harken to 1620 when universal land measures first became law in England and America. As you rode your horse into town you had to pass 80 telephone poles in order to reach a mile because they were 1 chain apart, or 66 feet. And each chain had 100 links, if you wanted to break it down further. Road rights-of-way also were 1 chain wide. And 80 square chains made a square mile, or 640 acres – and that was 1 section of land.

But if you’d rather count fence posts you had to pass 320 in order to reach a mile because they were a rod apart, or 16.5 feet. And since everyone knew that an acre was 10 square chains (43,560 square feet) it was easy to tell how many acres were in your neighbor’s farm.

Some aspects of those measures are still in use today in the horse racing business because a furlong is 10 chains in length, or 660 feet. You should feel smarter now because that’s so easy.

If you want to apply those important figures into the thrill of the chase I will give you an additional clue. The Treasure chest full of gold and precious jewels is more than 66,000 links north of Santa Fe."
<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


So why are those Figures important? and how would you apply them to the chase?






</div>


Every time I see this I have to chuckle about harkening to 1620, and riding your horse into town passing telephone poles. But I am going to admit that this post gives the most valuable clue of all of the posts that are on all of the blogs sites, in my opinion.



Big Grin There, I've said it!

... But it is "ALSO TRUE" that it is "<b>more than 66,000 links west of Toledo</b>" ?

.</div>

From TOLEDO, OH to CHEYENNE, WY in the ROCKIES is 1,102 Miles which is "<b>more than 66,000 links west of Toledo</b>"... 1,102 Miles WEST as a matter of fact 8O



Yet the statement is STILL TRUE...

The words "Toledo, OHIO" were never uttered by Forrest Fenn. Now, historically speaking, where was the very first city named Toledo, located? Definitely not Ohio.
