The Blaze is Tarry scant
I'm using my imagination here so don't throw stones.

The chest is out in the woods somewhere in a hole covered with tar paper.

If you've been wise and found the blaze,
This is the only line in the poem in past tense, suggesting you should figure out the blaze before getting there. Or wouldn't it read
If you are wise and find the blaze,
Look quickly down, your quest to cease,
But tarry scant and marvel gaze,

"people are in tight focus with a word that is key" = tarry

Forrest has said:
"A blaze could be anything that stands out." = tarry scant stands out to me
I still don't know what it means. lol

" Is the blaze one single object?" = In "a WORD" yes. f / tarry being the WORD. = the blaze

Plus when I look quickly down, what stands out? = tarry scant does

Definition of bury is: 1.put or hide underground
2.completely cover;cause to disappear
synonyms: hide,conceal,cover
Forrest never said he buried the chest but never said he didn't.

Forrest quote: "Why don't you ask me how deep a hole is?"

Definition of tarry: of, like, or covered in tar
Definition of scant: barely sufficient or adequate

Primary function of tar paper is to keep moisture. This is how Forrest knows the chest is wet.

In conclusion, when you're out in the woods don't turn over any logs just flip over any tar paper you see.

Ok now you can throw those stones.

RE: The Blaze is Tarry scant
Why not just cover the chest in tar, like the wax he sealed his bottles with. Then it might not even look like the chest anymore. The tar could be removed fairly easily without damaging the contents.... Put it in a lava field and you may ever see it.

Or why are we assuming tarry is bitumen. Why not wood pitch, also called tar. So he could easily be saying there is a bit of pine pitch. Something he told us all that we would smell when we are where the chest is located.

lava field? definitely never see it again. Smile

could you imagine having to retrieve the tc if it was covered in tar. No thanks.

scantily covered in pine tar. (as if sitting under a pine tree? maybe.)

LOL, passing up $1M in gold and jewels because it might be sticky?

Didn't mean I wouldn't still do it, just what a mess it would be.
I'm sure ff wouldn't have done that anyway.
That's why I put the scantily covered in pine tar as the better(more realistic) alternative.
