Two Trips?

Two Trips?
I've seen it written that Forrest took two trips to hide the treasure. Is this something he actually said somewhere? Or is it just another unfounded rumor?

I've wondered that very same thing. I don't think he ever stated that he made two trips, but he has made remarks about it being somewhere an old guy could carry 42 lbs. Would be interested if there is a quote to the contrary somewhere.

It is just a rumor.There are alot of them with this hunt.Some people make it their habit to spread rumor and get subtle assistants.

They create their own reality.

And others make believe with them.

If he did do 2 trips,I would say he buried a bell on one trip and hid the chest on the other.

So if you find a bell don't forget to ring it,ding a ling.

@ knowitall,

I thought you would have done a little better research considering your name.

Hi, Goofy. I remember FF saying that in an interview also. Might have been with Lorene Mills, but I'm not sure. I do recall wondering if he meant 2 trips from car-to-treasure & back twice or if he meant from home-to-treasure twice, maybe on different days. It wasn't really clear to me. Do we know which is true without assuming?

C’mon knowitall……..he said “maybe that’s why”. So maybe that is why or maybe it’s not why……… “<i>a 79 year old man had to make two trips to hide the treasure</i>”.



Fact according to Fenn……. <i>a 79 year old man had to make two trips to hide the treasure</i>.



Seems like a simple statement to me. You can certainly choose not to believe him, but that is what he said.
