    Default Anagrams in the Pictures and Text

    .
    This thread is to explore the use of anagrams in the text and pictures.

    Two examples will be given, to start, without follow-through as to further application.

    On pp. 44-45 is the border text “TO THE HIGHEST POINT”. The highest point on the signpost (above it) is YELLOW, and Fandango is shown YELLing.

    There is one yellow sign which shows BAGE MTN 16. This is an anagram for BENT MAG, and the sign points to the Cadillac wheel, which is indeed bent . “Mag” is common shortening of magnesium wheel , and also means “idle chatter”. This use of “mag” is confirmed by the border phrase “yakity yak”. Thus, two examples shown to confirm the use of the highest point meaning “yellow”. As mentioned, further explanation will not be added at this time.

    The second example is from p. 26, which contains the border phrase “DUSK TO DAWN” at the top, and at the bottom “A MOON SHADOW”. The fairy is using a “WAND”, then line of which extends to pick up the “W” and “A” in the border. “DUSK TO DAWN” indicates a span, and the span of the phrase begins and ends with “DN”. The letters combining to arrange to DAWN / WAND. As well, the two phrases mentioned begin and end with the letters for DAWN / WAND.

    So, two examples of structured use of anagrams in the puzzle.

    To add, the two phrase beginning / end letters, when read backwards, spell

    WAND

    This aligns with the on-going conversation re: EAST on p. 17, and the beginning / end letters of

    T (radition carrie) S
    A (ll in a nam ) E

    spell the EAST backwards.

    Good luck with the computer, cw, they can be quite frustrating. It will be interesting to see whatever you can retrieve.

    Forgot to mention, of course, that the red/blue border letters are anagrams.

    As well, many of the border words, without the red/blue letters are anagrams, example:

    SCEPTRE IN HAND, and retaining only the white letters

    SCE_TRE I_ HA_D

    SECRET I HAD

    Hi astree...another snow storm here...so, I found my login for tweleve and feel lost a bit. It's been just under 2 years since I logged in. I have to read through a lot of my notes and maybe check out "sixer's" Mysterious Writings on Fandango. I have to say, having worked on Forrest's treasure for so long, I recently wondered if he ever tried doing Masquerade or even Fandango (2007-2010?)

    When I see your "SECRET I HAD"...I can't get Forrest's "My Secret Where" out of my head.

    Thank you DLester. I won't be checking everyday....but found, after working for 2 years on Forrest Fenn's treasure, my thoughts are changing on where I should be looking for the key on MDI. My husband, dog and I have visited Acadia 4 times so far, looking 3 times in the quieter (west) side and only once on the east side.

    I'm heading out West to the Rockies in a few months for my 5th search , and then I hope to put more effort into Fandango. It' hard to believe there isn't more interest in it.

    Thank you again.
