He says he doesn't know, and then people say that means he does know.

Dude, I get what you are saying. However, TENSE is very important to Forrest in his writing. He purposely used it when creating the poem. And I believe he uses it when replying to questions with prepared answers.

I think everyone who claims that they'll find the treasure this summer should post a photo of the hat they'll eat when they don't. Extra points if it's red and says "Make America Great Again."

solved?
The biggest indicator that the chase may be over soon is Forrest's comments on Jenny's site on Feb. 4. I don't think Forrest would say something like that without good reason; no one really knows his reasoning except him and maybe one other person. Most searchers assume he said it because someone is getting close to finding the treasure chest; I think that's a safe assumption.

A lot of searchers think the chase will be over soon; some because Forrest thinks someone will find it this summer and others because they think they have the solution. So many searchers have claimed to have the right solve and been wrong time and time again, believing any one of them that states they are right is a waste of time. There are people that will claim they know what the blaze is, some even claim they know the treasure chest is hidden at the blaze and they will be able to retrieve the tc there. There are a lot of seriously delusional searchers in the chase. The best thing you can do is take everything you hear from searchers with a grain of salt(sometimes maybe salt shake, a little lick of lime, etc. ... repeat) and work on your own solution to the poem.

dyes.

I don't think he will give out anymore clues or hints. There is enough out there to solve the poem and find the treasure. If he thinks someone is getting close, which at this point I'm assuming he does, I seriously doubt he is going to give out anymore hints or clues. He has done everything he can to try and keep this as fair as possible; I suspect that will continue, which means no more clues/hints.

Good Luck

I thought it would be easy from what I found online through researching google earth. In my opinion with 7 BOTG trips is when you get to the intersection of clues below HOB you have just begun. You can see things on GE but when you are actually at the area it looks completely different and you have to figure out which direction to take. The solve can be simple but to determine where and what the blaze is will be the tough part. An Easter egg hunt as a kid, you knew the general area but it was still hard to find the eggs. This is way harder, and only one egg, and a vast area.
I found out through research from an old time USF Ranger where the fishing guides don’t take their clients. The guides like Forrest won’t give up that spot, but a old Ranger did. Thanks Mr Forest Ranger, you put me in the spot. Forrest found the spot by accident when he took a short cut to his hole he was probably with Skippy or Dad the first time. Forrest knows he’s been had and bet he is anxious for the summer season as we all are.

"Forrest knows he’s been had ..."

Is that comment insider information(in other words do you think this because you told him your general search area at the end of October), or are you just inferring that from Forrest's comments?

2Q) For most, the physical search season is at a halt until the warm waters of Spring begin to flow once again. It’s currently a quiet time which offers opportunity for reflection upon past ideas, solves, failures, and thrills. Previously, you had mentioned a few searchers solved the first two clues, but weren’t necessarily knowledgeable of the fact.
Are you aware of any more progress made past the first two clues? Have searchers homed into other clues or words in the poem? Have searchers been closer than 200 feet to the treasure?

I am rarely told exactly where people are searching so I don’t know if they are getting closer or not. My gut feeling is that someone will find it this summer.

Thank you, Gilagin, I've read through it several times. Sorry if I wasn't clear, but my response was based primarily on the following comment in the OP:

"i think mr. fenn misoverestimates the folk searching and may be he can give more clues to help us all before he dyes? that is if he wants the gold found soon befor he dyes."

But if you DO find it, please post a pic drinking from the hat!! Use a life straw, please!

RE: the chase will be ending this summer?
Fenn master, I was referring to his newest comments, only because going from finding it in 100 to 1000 years to a gut feeling this summer has got to mean something. Earlier he said he thought it would be found sooner then he thought, not an exact quote. I think maybe a few searchers have told him the general area so it may be found in his thoughts, but sometimes the last egg isn’t found. I can only hope I was one of the few who sent him the correct general area, but I doubt it...

I hear Red Hats v2 will be available 11/7/2018. They'll say, "Made America Great Again!" Smile

The primary benefit most of us will derive from The Chase will be found well outside of finding the chest. Harsh, but so is reality.

Good luck to all searchers.

the use of the word "ambivalent" is an old comment and recent comments from f are saying something very different

Chris,
Can you cite sources? To my knowledge, F has been extremely quiet for several months until 2/4, and the two comments of interest are:

Q2 response:
"I am rarely told exactly where people are searching so I don’t know if they are getting closer or not. My gut feeling is that someone will find it this summer."
http://mysteriouswritings.com/six-questi...e-charmed/

Q6 response excerpt:
"Rocking chair ideas can lead one to the first few clues, but a physical presence is needed to complete the solve. Google Earth cannot help with the last clue."

I happen to find it difficult to infer from either of these that he is other than ambivalent about it being found. The Q6 response is new information at an unexpected time but, IMO, it's too much of a stretch to infer he wishes it found soon. Opinions will undoubtedly vary. Do you have something more concrete than what I've quoted to support what you describe as "saying something very different", or is that what you infer from the above comment(s)?

OO
