To understand this post become familiar with earlier posts of hunts in the Lamar Valley. The impression in a hollowed tree convinced me I had found where the treasure was hidden. Only now have I concluded that it is not the imprint of the fabled treasure. The print was perfectly smooth with a flat bottom. I now believe the roman chest would leave a different print than the one I found.
Another place now has my attention but I am not looking to get hyperthermic so I will wait till summer is here once again. This place is at least worth looking into and at best the most supported site (by the poem) I have come to find. So how do I share this new revelation and still be the first one there? Well, I’ll give out the ideas that lead me to this new site but the site itself will remain unwritten.
There our blogs that for me were too far out to consider but the truth may be in the world of the metaphysical. Women on the top and sides of the box does point out a possible place when combined with some of the strangest tells of losing your sole if you open the chest. The bronze box is also a hint. A Ranger’s claim about a trail going behind high waters really tweaked my interest. How the poem maps out a way to the treasure is very important. If followed the clues will lead to the treasure but this doesn’t mean the clues are linear. Forrest says follow the clues in order but that does’t mean the clues take the reader in a linear route. Example would be the clue put in below the home of Brown. You may not need to go by the Home of Brown to put in below the home of Brown. I think the Home of Brown is an area not a spot on the map. Forrest says he made the poem like an architect would, maybe he built the poem around the chest not to the chest. ” Begin it here warm waters halt” but don’t walk from there, you walk from the blaze quickly down. Maybe the blaze is a trail that leads to the last two clues. Maybe to begin it refers to an area as does the clue home of Brown. The ideas I have shared took me to the place I will explore next. I have included these ideas in hopes of warming a vary cold place.
How about your trail any comments are like wood on the fire so warm our winter months with a word or two.
