Title to the gold
In the TTOTC, Mr. Fenn says that his parents (burned) there mortgage papers, once the loan was payed off. In the chapter Looking for Lewis and Clark, he says he and Donnie, (burned) the map. I think it's a clue.

Hi Jason, L+C, is also the only other chapter in the book, where he used the word wise, as in wisely and wisdom. I believe that wwwh and the blaze, could be one and the same place, and related to fire.

He also writes,



- "<i>...the dark visor on my helmet and the salty tears <b>burned</b> my eyes</i>" (page 82)



- "[The ejection procedure] <i>was <b>burned</b> into my brain</i>" (page 84)



- "<i>Those words <b>burned </b>in my brain and I can see them just as clearly now as I did then</i>" (page 94)



- "<i>George <b>Burns</b> was 100 years old when someone asked him how his health was.</i>" (page 133)



- "<i>After three more seconds and another nod, we each moved our throttles outboard to the after<b>burner</b> latch</i>" (page 79)



What is the clue? The word Burn/Burned?



Or do you mean that in order to find the blaze, you have to wisely burn your map? or book? or ??



Fenn says he and Donnie very <b>wisely</b> burned the map "<i>we very wisely wadded the map and hoped we would be forgiven that one small foible</i>"</div>
</div>


Burning the map was a foolish thing to do. Calling it wise is an example of irony or sarcasm. If the "wise" in the poem is meant to be ironic as well, then maybe we actually need to be foolish to find the blaze.
