GB ive been thinking about the same thing
ive had convos about F trying to stay/keep hunt in the public eye for
as long as he can,ie: contradictory statements,as he is 86 though he
seems like a stout dude and will prob make it into his 90s

i lost my book a few yrs ago never replaced it, now im wondering
should i.

Ive had 3 look see, 1 b4 lost book, i didnt do the look see,
something always came up, so got others to look see, and
everytime the report was negative, i asked F is the chest
still there, always yes. the last look see was 2yr ago
in sept im going and its from the poem and maps, and what
ive read about F, and what i remember and notes from the
book. here's hoping if nothing else, it will be big fun and
some good memories at 60+

Interesting cross-over with "A Treasure's Trove"

With "15" clue interpretations, not the standard "9" as perfectly stated in the book. And, no treasure.

Still new to this, so maybe this is insane but....
I can keep my secret where = I can keep my secret (w) here.
There are 23 obvious (w)s in the poem.
Finding a 24th (w) would fit a pattern many have discussed previously.
The hidden (w) is found when writing out the contraction: There'll = There will.
"fort will" can be seen in line 23, spaces 7-14.

cw0909,

I'm in the north end of the state, and we're fine, thank goodness. I appreciate your checking.

Astree,

That blew my mind. SO much to think about and work upon.

Unfortunately, 'blowing my mind' only requires a small puff of air into my ear canal cuz there just ain't much left....

Domino,

That '15' vs '9' sounds like something to consider. One's an 'O' and one's an 'I'.

DaisyMae,

I never counted the W's. Something else to add to the mix. I'd point out that counting letters usually involves some sort of code, and once again shows Mr. Fenn is using something coded in spite of trying to fool us into thinking otherwise.

I'm taking my crew on vacation this week to Shreveport and Dallas for food, fun, swimming, movies, and shopping--my nurse is visiting her husband in Minnesota, so I've been booted again. Heh. I've joined the legion of Pokémon hunters and am getting more exercise now than in the last three years. Oh, what I do for my games.

Planning on swimming twice a day and laying up--in other words, joining my walrus brethren,

Doc

I figured something out on my way to Shreveport this evening:

Fear of Bear trumps Love of Brother.

I learned a long time ago to listen to my office manager regardless of my reasonings--I like to think I have sense enough to listen when folks I trust try to guide me.

I'm so slow at this it might just be a recipe for tuna fish casserole, but I ain't EVEN taking that chance....

My hot tub needs me,

Doc
