Sandy Wolf​youth is wasted on the young

amy smith​if you don’t struggle with your identity your whole life, then you’re dead

fossilman123​hello all, did i miss much?

kinsol​Does Forrest believe in reincarnation?

Dale Richards​Jack Higgins in The Eagle Has Landed, “I realized fear one morning, with the blare of the fox hunter’s sound. When they’re all chasin’ the poor bloody fox, ’tis safer to be dressed like the hound. ”

Mary Green​AGK always thought Fenn thought of Sloane as maybe grandfather

amy smith​Let’s get Tobey more drunk so he’ll tell more secrets!

B Cross​Welcome. a little late.

David Olson​”I wish I could be clever like that.”

fossilman123​lol@amy smith

amy smith​hmmm the delta huh?

Mary Green​Dale Richards, great to know i remember the movie but not the line

B Cross

Sandy Wolf​that was a good movie

Mary Green​AGK good points shelly about the fox and hound

Denise Bagley​Except that he said “two”people can keep a secret if one is dead. Who is the “one” who is dead?

AJ 21​AGK The front cover does it have any hints or value in your eyes?

Susan Heckenliable​I think the one who is dead is Olga

Tom K​Is it possible that Eric Sloane was actually the person that introduced Forrest to his special place?

Denise Bagley​Susan, it’s interesting that most people discount his quote about the “one” who is dead.

Asset Marketing​call an Uber for a ride home Toby

Man In The Barn​Kacir = The one who is dead

Dan Kirk​Since Forrest mentions embellishment in TOTC, how much do you think he embellishes in the poem and how much imagination do you think is required to solve the clues?

Joey Pero​AGK hi! Sorry I’m late!

Denise Bagley​I wouldn’t discount anything Forrest says. It’s all important.

Susan Heckenliable​I don’t discount anything he says over and over like the two can keep a secret quote

Sandy Wolf​[message retracted]

Matt​AGK, any thoughtd as to why Fenn changed how Sloane died? I dont see how changing it would be embellishing or need to change.

Ashley Bergstrom​AGK: Page 4, paragraph 1… Forrest admits he embellishes… Do you guess the clues could be “embellished” or should we be able to see the logic in the nine clues? — why the poem is difficult?

Joey Pero​Kacir = okay sir?

jeepgirljody​Watching while I’m working – the notification worked!

Cmonkeyification​AGK: When doing research on Sloane, I believe I came across that he was married more times than what Forrest stated in the book. Is this correct and/or relevant?

Dale Richards​AGK: Fox hunts are outlawed in the UK, but they have been continued under the disguise trail hunts in the Lake District through the National Trust Charity

Adam Foddy​8.49pm. How many empty bottles do you have in your kitchen? 😂 Shelley is definitely more giggly today 🤣

Denise Bagley​AGK, everything he says is a clue.

Joey Pero​“My church is in the mountains”

amy smith​You can be spiritual vs. religious

phil​What part of FEnn do you think wrote the poem? Pilot, author, explorer, anthropologist etc…how would this frame the clues…flight plan, foot path etc…

Denise Bagley​AGK, thanks for the book club. This is fun.

Renee Slarve​Hello and thank you for your vlog. Can the Treasure been seen during winter (snow) months.

Richard Hunter​[message retracted]

Michael koen​I will give you 2 clues from the book that I have found, RR tracks 1/2 mile south of his home and fire circle that the 5 or 6 girls danced around

Sandy Wolf​thank you for your service

jeepgirljody​AGK Do you guys think Forrests whats to know who and how the chest was found in his lifetime? Or do you think he is over it and is fine if no one finds it for 100 years?

Eric Schmidt​Michael Koen – how are those clues?

Richard Hunter​[message retracted]

Michael koen​they are an actual place about 1 mile apart

Michael koen​the cemetary he mentions is right with the fire circle

Man In The Barn​IRT the fox and hound line… keeping with the “think simple” mindset. It makes since to me that it means when your on the hunt, dress/act like the people around the treasure as to not draw attention

Ashley Bergstrom​AGK: Forrest says his mind “stays 13″… since I follow your vlog I am aware of the locations you feel fit WWWH, however, have you ever thought about the special place relating to his youth?

RedneckExpress​AGK: What do you think about some kind of hint on the cover of TTOTC?

Denise Bagley​AGK, imagination is huge! To figure out his poem.

Matt​remember, the two people secret, is a lifted quote used as his own

Tom K​Sloane suffered heart attack while holding onto a parking meter according to Wiki

Bryan Eagle​It was only a few days after his birthday and Forrest said 2 weeks

amy smith​he died waiting on the light to turn green……right?

Michael koen​the street corner in manhatten is also a major clue

Dale Richards​AGK: Forrest claims he is an environmentalist more than most. I’m making note of that statement. Do you think it may be relevant?

Denise Bagley​AGK, he says to ask kids, this is why imagination is important. I had this as a comment and I think it was erased.

Eric Schmidt​AGK: He died from a heart attack while walking down the street to a luncheon held in his honor. The luncheon celebration marked the publication of his memoir, Eighty: An American Souvenir (wikipedia)

amy smith​celebrities get married 5-6 times……

Matt​sloane died from a heart attack walking down the street, to a luncheon in his honor, vs waiting on a street corner waiting for a light

Susan Heckenliable​Matt I think the quote was two “men” can keep a secret and he always says “people” makes me think about Olga’s ashes location

Denise Bagley​AKG, my last comment wasn’t erased my mistake .

B Cross​Great Program

Matt​similar, but different to stand out

Ashley Bergstrom​AGK: describe what you think Forrest finds as peaceful… (ie. fishing, finding arrowheads!?)…

B Cross​The wine is a hit (at least for me!

Matt​susan, its from Ben Franklin, 3ppl can keep a secret if 2 are dead.

Mary Green​AGK,wonder when it was changed to,two people Three may keep a Secret, if two of them are dead.Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard’s Almanack (1735).

Beth Weathers​Have you thought about discussing the inside cover in a book club?

Cmonkeyification​AGK: “Dreams and Fantasies”. Interpretation?

Denise Bagley​[message retracted]

phil​AGK: The preface mentions river bottoms are where dreams and fantasies go to play. Does this tie into Captain Kidd?

Michael koen​Out west a 2 track road is a dirt road is rr tracks

Joey Pero​@AGK in this first section he seems to make a deal out of meadowlarks – I believe he is referring to Western Meadowlarks. He brings this back throughout the book.

phil​Tequila > Wine

Michael koen​4 meadowlarks actually means 4 of something else

amy smith​mountains and the river bottoms, dreams and fantasies are a huge hint

MagneticUniverse​Forrest may be hinting at a belief in reincarnation when he says, “…if any readers over the age of twelve don’t see a little of themselves in THIS MIRROR, then maybe they deserve another turn.”

Eric Schmidt​AGK: the dreams and fantasies comment for a long time made me think the treasure was on a river bottom… until he said it wasn’t under water.

steve remple​AGK Forrest talks with great admiration of Eric and his Dad in the preface. Do you think there is a clue in the fact he doesn’t mention his fathers name until the end of the book??

David Olson​What do you make of the juxtaposition of Forrests image of himself and his wife installing a sky light In the bathroom that draws attention to his aging body.

Michael koen​his burial location is hint of a location for a clue

amy smith​Agent Tequila is smoking hot!

Denise Bagley​[message retracted]

Michael koen​it’s four meadows not meadowlarks

Joel Lewicki​AGK: A river bottom, is not the bottom of a river, it is the low-lying areas next to river! The TC could be in a river bottom, and NOT be under water.

Paul Ammons​Shelley, I agree with your take on dressing like a Hound..Thank you, At odds with life can be a “Lonely” place.

AJ 21​Should do a book giveaway 😁

Matt​add Fenn thought of “who knows how long he might have lived”… if not for light. if he died while walking vs halting?

Michael koen​I also found a 18 inch rusty pipe overlooking this vally

David Dow​AGK Do you think he was close to his mother? No where near as much about her in TTOTC.

JanKirb​agk Ever wonder why it is “Thrill of the chase” and not “Thrill of the hunt”? After all the treasure is not moving so there is nothing to chase in the normal sense of the word.

B Cross
Did Forrest ever mention he went to one of the “healing springs” in N M when he had cancer? Can address in other session if more appropriate.

Asset Marketing​.I have read or remember a reference to a hat FF had or someone he knew and the nickname was Brown…could this be a lost item or placed item that is now “The Home of Brown”…?

Denise Bagley​AGK, what do you think of his “church “ being the “riches” in his poem?

Nikolai Strov​Would an underage finder be exempt from taxes?

Matt​no, parents would have to claim it, on theirs, to prevent tax naughtyness

Nikolai Strov​Ok 🙂

Denise Bagley​AKG, look up the definition of “riches” it’s remarkable,

Eric Schmidt​thank you!!

B Cross​Fantastic show!

Tom K​Great meeting, guys!
