    Have fun with Sherlock (is that the one where Lucy Liu plays the assistant?). Sushi sounds great about now!

    "Sherlock" brings to mind Mark Twain's story "A Double Barrelled Detective Story" that features Sherlock Holmes and a character by the name of Ham Sandwich.

    Astree!

    'Sherlock'--the BBC series that made stars out of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

    Get thee hence. Watch it now. It's the most enjoyable series I've seen in forever. The scene in a later episode where Watson asks Sherlock to be his best man is an absolute classic.

    Television done right. And that's rare as hen's teeth nowadays.

Without this piece of information it would be entirely possible to go to the correct location and fail to find the chest because the hole that one has dug not has not been deep enough.

    M,

    In case you're not aware, Forrest often says: "I didn't say it was buried. I didn't say it wasn't buried, either. I just didn't want to give that as a clue". He also teases "How deep is a hole"?

    There are several discussion threads related to this topic at chasechat.com (one has "metal detector" in the title, and metal detector is something that Forrest once commented on.)

    I have wondered around this same subject in the past, and have also noted at the end of the the 23rd line and beginning of the 24th, "D I G".

    Beyond that, I am now pretty well convinced that Forrest gives us what we need to know about the various aspects related to locating and retrieving the chest, in the poem.
    .
    Doc,

    Thanks for the clarification. I would love to catch an episode, and will be on the look-out for the opportunity.

    Michaelr,

    Good point.

    'Look quickly down, your quest to cease'. One of the myriad implications of 'Look quickly down' is to interpret 'quickly' as FAST. If that's the case, and we know that AS is the first word of the poem, then FAST becomes AS FT or 1 FT.

    Of course, that would transform the instruction 'Look quickly down' into 'Look 1 FT down'. That would fulfill the requirement of your observation.

    That also dovetails to what astree was saying as well. If that's the last instruction to locate the chest, it's a good indication the solution is going to pinpoint the location. When we 'hunt' for the chest, it's going to be a 'retrieval' process as opposed to a 'search'. At least that's the way I'm approaching it.

    Keep up the stream of ideas. You never know when something shakes loose.

    Doc,

    I like that interpretation of "quickly".

    I had arrived at the same conclusion as regards the depth, but arriving at it from a different line of enquiry. In the image of FF milking Bessie , the cow's tail is wrapped around "one foot" of the stool. Since tail=deep, I took this as meaning the "earth hole"(Bessie + milk = Lake heart = earth hole) is 1 ft deep.

    Forrest mentions both "Catcher in the Rye" and "For Whom the Bells Toll" in his book. These books have gotten quite a bit of discussion in the forums. Quite a few people read through the books, in hopes of gaining an advantage, yet Forrest says no specialized knowledge is required. I believe, that it's more about the mention of the books, than what's in them.
