The home of Brown
Ok. I give up! I guess I am just going to have to come out of retirement and prove this crazy continental divide theory wrong. Mark this moment in time as the tipping point where everything changed!!!!! You have all been warned! LOL

Did f say to think big for the HOB? I have heard that comment thrown around but I am not sure....
</div>


Hi Jen! I remember hearing that as well back on Dal's blog. I thought it was in response to an e-mail from a searcher, so I went through all of the ones there and nada, zippo. I definitely remember it though. It must have been one of the bloggers who posted what Forrest said to him/her but I don't remember who it was. If that's the case, might be hard to take it as fact. I'll spend a little time searching Dal's old 9 Clues sections and see if I find anything.



It reminds me of the 85% thing. I've heard it repeated a million times as Forrest saying only 85% has to be the truth, when what he says in the book (pg. 14) is "non-fiction writers only have to be right but eighty-five percent of the time". Big difference between being right or wrong as opposed to telling the truth and lying, yet it circulates.

The solution to the sentence - clue "Put in below the home of Brown" seems hyper-obvious to me. I think it means exactly what it says--- and why the word is "home" not "house," and why it's "Brown" not "brown." The sentence in front of it explains what is meant. People applying massive amounts of mental effort on the sentence "Put in below the home of Brown" are perhaps "over-thinking" what it means.



Perhaps I will have free time from my employer in August to go and look. :-)

To answer your question about thinking big, this is Forrest's comment about that question in an email.

Stanley,



I don’t remember saying that related to the treasure and can’t imagine why I would. f

The home of Brown is simple, fitting but the second most difficult to solve (last for me).

LOL! Thanks Wolf! After about an hour combing through the old 9 Clues section on Dal's site last night (Parts 15 thru 24) BAM! There it was this morning on a new post on his blog. If only I'd waited until this morning! LOL All I found last night were several people repeating it, beginning around the middle of May, but with absolutely zero to back it up.

I hear that a lot about how someone heard this or that --- after a few go arounds the story is all screwed up. I hate seeing people go off track because of what others incorrectly quote.

Hey Tim weren't you giving me advise on using to many man made objects? Well it is my turn to return the favour ... it is time to drop the continental divide and cloud theory. Even if we were to accept it - it goes no where, it is be a non-clue because anything could be linked to it, thus it is meaningless.

You can thank me later - LOL

But but wait wait its only the start so does it not go everywhere?

You have to start somewhere and if you just use the poem it narows down the world.

Advise on this site is like trying to get sobering advise from a drunk. Maybe take my advise

as more of a question because we are all drunk.

Well at least you liked that advise so I feel I have done something good



so ignore the CD, oh so you must not be searching in the CD then?

I say this only because forrest told us it was in the Rocky Mountains about 1 year after the book came out. So one thing I did and may still do is that I searched for the chest

in the foothills. So maybe you don't like the foothills as well since it sorta goes with the CD theory.



So really to me wwwh is needed but really isn't HOB is the one when we must have

agree or solve on to get the prize. So like some say if you know the blaze and where the chest is and then work back to HOB do you really need to know the canyon or wwwh, This is the backwards theory so if so take the canyon that comes down from the hot springs or CD to your HOB maybe.
