Chasing Chickens

RE: Chasing Chickens
Over time, I see the W and the 23 being discussed. Sometimes, the 4 is thrown in for good measure...

Yes, W is the 23rd letter of the alphabet.
If you start from the bottom of the alphabet, W is the 4th letter.

And yes, there's the row 4, block 23.

4/23 ... April 23rd.
William Shakespeare.
His date of birth is unknown but, is widely accepted to be April 23, 1564. He died April 23, 1616.
His father John, was a glover. He made gloves. And as we all know, it's best to have gloves.

Now, for those who entertain the idea that 'I' represents someone other than Forrest in the poem, go research Shakespeare's Sonnet 23.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And just for sheitzengeigles, take a look at page 93, TTOTC again.

Lt. James Jamerson is using his pocket to hide something you might find of interest.
And, minimal research will show he was not a Lt. at the time this photo was taken.

It doesn't really matter *who* I is, just know what to do with I.

RE: Chasing Chickens
'Upjohn' was originally 'Ap-John', which meant 'son of John'.

William Shakespeare was the son of John Shakespeare.

Mr. Fenn,
There is a lot of talk about you backing away from the chase as evidenced by your lack of posting on the blogs. Some say your health is not good and that is why you stopped. It is lonesome without you. Do you have anything to say about that? Thanks,  ~Billy S

Well Billy,
Every day for the last few years I’ve told myself to retire, and I always do – for a few days. But just last night I finished the 39th story in my 3rd memoir. I selected what I think are my best Scrapbooks, rewrote them, added lots of new graphics, stick figures, and new/old photos. It is pretty much designed and will be printed next week hopefully.
Doug Preston wrote a lengthy foreword that beautifully sets the tone for what is to come. He and I will launch the book at Collected Works bookstore on 2 October. After that maybe I will retire for sure, but I secretly hope not. f

Portia :
"You, merchant, have you anything to say?"

Antonio :
"But little : I am arm'd and well prepar'd.
Give me your hand Bassanio : fare you well !
Grieve not that I am fallen to this for you,
For herein Fortune shows herself more kind
Than is her custom : it is still her use
To let the wretched man outlive his wealth,
To view with hollow eye and wrinkled brow
An age of poverty; from which lingering penance
Of such misery doth she cut me off."

He's blue Wink

BTW...it is a hint, but the hint isn't blue, although blue is Fenn's favorite color.

RE: The Forward in Forrest's New Book
Wasn't the story originally leaving his car in Arizona? In the university parking lot. Reported by Tony Dokoupil in Newsweek on August 20, 2012...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At first glance, one would seem to contradict the other.
But, think about it.

"The final clue would be WHERE 'they' found his car ..."

As has been stated already, his car would not have sat there but for a couple days at the most before being investigated and towed.
The statement does not imply that a 'searcher' would need to find his car there.

Okay, so he parks his car at either location, and the implication is that a 'final clue' can be found at either location. This is implied simply because the resting spot of Indulgence has never changed.
So, it doesn't matter which place he leaves his car, the location of the chest remains the same.

So, analytical reasoning seems to suggest that it doesn't matter if the car was found in the Denver parking lot, or the Arizona parking lot.
The only thing that would appear relevant that connects the two different locations would simply be that the car is found in a parking lot.
This would assure that the final clue remains the same wherever the car is left, as long as it is found in a parking lot.

The car is not the focal point here, the parking lot is.

Now, how does that help, clue-wise ?

To be helpful, it would need to hint at something that can be connected to both of the parking lots.

I smiled when I figured it out, as I had made the connection over a year ago, without knowing about any 'parking lot' connection until just now.

It also explains him laughing about it on the way back to his car.

RE: Chasing Chickens
I would agree with ROLL TIDE, at least to a point. I focus on the word "final" as being the last, maybe even meaning after death. Fenn has accomplices (not knowledgeable about the CT itself though) and can have his car parked for him anywhere he leaves directions for them to do so.
