Forrest Gets Mail – 9
http://dalneitzel.com/2015/11/02/forrest-gets-mail-9/

In this email from Forrest to a journalist in Italy, Forrest answers some questions you may have been wondering about yourself.

—————

Are there signs that people are getting closer to solving your puzzle? How many clues have people solved now?
Searchers have come within about 200 feet. Some may have solved the first four clues, but I am not certain.

You have told people to stay at home unless they have solved the first clue.
If you don’t know where you are going any trail will take you there.

Do expect that people will somehow *know* for sure once they have found the first clue?
No, many people have found the first clue but they didn’t know it. Until someone finds the treasure they will not know for sure that they have discovered the first clue.

Or they might have found it without realizing it?
Yes

Is it an advantage to buy The Thrill of the Chase and Too Far to Walk?
There are hints in my TTOTC book that can help solve the clues in the poem.

We don’t have sagebrush here. Is it a nice smell or a strange smell? Does it smell like the herb?
Sagebrush has a nice aroma that lasts a long time if you take a cutting home and let it dry. I used to put twigs in letters to clients hoping the smell will remind them, and lure them back to my art gallery. Please tell Italy hello. I love your country and its people.

"Some may have solved the first four clues"
this is the first time i've heard him say that
And
if you believe like me, someone has seen the blaze....
that logically seems like more that 4 clues solved correctly

Great, you won't know till the end, so really it's pretty arbitrary all the way to the end, find a Wwwh go to canyon, wander the mountains until you end up by chance on right trail,
So why would it 15 years to create shorthand directions that have no secondary level of solving?
Something is setting off my bullshit meter.

Italian: "Do expect that people will somehow *know* for sure once they have found the first clue?"

Fenn: "No, many people have found the first clue but they didn’t know it. Until someone finds the treasure they will not know for sure that they have discovered the first clue."

this supports my theory that the first clue IS the treasure location.
First stanza = first 2 clues
Second = 2 more clues (at least)
it's hard to say if the 9 clues are counted this way
I still believe the 9 places are between Halt and Cease in poem.

“Until someone finds the treasure they will not know for sure that they have discovered the first clue.”

This just goes to show that you cannot eliminate anything that is a coincidence. And my theory of a circle, or pi, or TT. It stops where it begins. You wont know officially where it started until you find it, leaving your entire solve a "hunch" until you actually find the treasure.

RE: Forrest Gets Mail – 9
exciting!
I wonder who has solved 4 clues, but more importantly, why is even F not certain that someone has solved 4 clues?

could it be possible that the last 5 clues are all within a small area? maybe it could????
maybe I came within a nats ballack this summer?

"If you don’t know where you are going any trail will take you there". he's a comedian.lol
