    I read the article. The woman missed the trail on the way back due to bad weather, but retraced her steps the next day, and was on her way out...Search parties had already been dispatched. But what about the loser boyfriend who let his girlfriend travel alone, searching for the treasure?

    Yes, but did she find the treasure?! What's with journalists these days? Inquiring minds want to know.
    I drank what?

    Begin where warm waters halts

    A geyser- warm waters "halts" at apex of a geyser

    fountain
    1 font, fount, jet, reservoir, spout, spray, spring, well
    2 (figurative) beginning, cause, commencement, derivation, fount, fountainhead, genesis, origin, rise, source, wellhead, wellspring

    A geyser might also be thought of as a "fountain". The word "fountain" may also be understood figuratively as "beginning".

    Old Faithful?

    The author was kind enough to "add" another clue for the GMA crowd earlier this morning --> "Don't bother to search anywhere a 79 yr old man couldn't carry a 42 pound box".

    Of course, a "serious" treasure hunter would have already realized this fact, but, it keeps hope alive for others. By the way, they also mentioned that 5,000 copies of his book have been recently purchased ...

    The author of the mysteriouswritings website recently discussed the meaning of the double colophon in the book

    The Thrill of the Chase Ending » Mysterious Writings
    .


    Some other possiblities
    The city's name comes from the word κολοφών, 'summit', which is also the origin of the bibliographic term 'colophon', in the metaphorical sense of a 'crowning touch', as it was sited along a ridgeline. The term "colophony" for rosin comes from the term colophonia resina, that is, resin from the pine trees of Colophon
    Colophon (city) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    colophon usually contained facts relative to the text such as associated person(s) (e.g., the scribe, owner, or commissioner of the tablet), literary contents (e.g., a title,

    From the poem - "I give you title to the gold"

    Omega and small "w" ... omega omega = ww
    Other more personal meaning, such as the horseshoe shape or symbol as resistance to the Vietnam war (as he was a pilot there)

    OLD FAITHFUL = WARM WATERS HALT

    Billabong, Bourn, Bourne, Branch, Burn: Origins, Forms, Histories of Words Meaning River, Lake - Yahoo! Voices - voices.yahoo.com

    Bourn (17th century), bourne (14th century), and burn (before 12th century) are used in Great Britain to refer to a stream, brook, or creek. They are akin to Old High German brunno ("spring of water") and Old Norse brunnr ("spring of water").

    In Old English, burn (also burna and burne) originally denoted a spring or fountain; later, by extension, it also referred to a stream or river. Eventually, however, the word came to be applied to a small stream or brook. The spelling burn is used mainly in northern England and Scotland.

    BROWN HOUSE= BRUN HOUSE =BURN HOUSE= STREAM HOUSE= BEAVER'S LODGE?

    Begin it where warm waters halt
    And take it in the canyon down,
    Not far, but too far to walk.
    Put in below the home of Brown.

    Begin at Old Faithful
    Take it(canoe?) in the canyon down( canyon= can you = can u = canoe?)
    Not far, but too far to walk( too far to walk imply some other form of transport= canoe?)
    Put in below the beaver's lodge?( beaver's lodge consistent with trip on river?)
