3PJs4Gold #6: Forrest Fenn’s Treasure Clue #6: Trove for all to Seek (PJ’s PJ 4 PJs & Gold)

The sixth clue-“So why is it that I must go and leave my trove for all to seek?”: This

PJ's Treasure Trove

A Trove of Gold and Precious Jewels. Now that is PJ style.

clue starts to answer why Forrest is leaving the treasure.  We know he had cancer and we are thankful it’s in remission, but why did he leave the treasure where he did?  We will find out in the next sentence.  This is 2 lines of the poem so why does Forrest add this to the poem, why is it written in first person, and why do I think this is a clue.  Well I believe this is a transition sentence/clue.  Forrest hasn’t used first person since clue#1.  This change in style, provides even more credence to the cypher of Yellowstone.  It gives a breaking point to end the clues for the cypher of the old treasure and indicates that the rest of the poem will only give final guidance for the new treasure.  Clues #2-#5 relate to the old and new treasures, from now on the Poem continues in present voice and hints of only the new treasure.

Sentence Clue Discussion of Meaning
As I have gone alone in there
 and with my treasures bold,
 I can keep my secret where, and hint of riches new and old. 1. The clues are hinting to both old and new secret riches.  A cypher of old riches, (Nine Mile Hole in Yellowstone) hinting toward new riches: The treasure.
Begin it where warm waters halt and take it in the canyons down, 
not far, but too far to walk. 2. Start your search at the bottom of a canyon of a hot spring fed river (or any river) flowing into a river (or dam) and travel some distance in the river [likely defined by clue #1].
Put in below the home of Brown. 3.  Launch your quest below the home of Brown. (also start any cypher [Clue #1] measurements here)
From there it’s no place for the meek, The end is ever drawing nigh; there’ll be no paddle up your creek, 
just heavy loads and water high. 4. You will find rough and rugged rocks at a bend in the river, while traveling up steam passing large rocks with water above you.
If you’ve been wise and found the blaze, 
look quickly down, your quest to cease, but tarry scant with marvel gaze, 
just take the chest and go in peace. 5. Wisely find the marker/path, the treasure will be below this blaze, don’t wait, grab and go.  Tell folks once you and the chest are secure.
So why is it that I must go and leave my trove for all to seek? 6. Transition clue which indicates the end of the clues for the cypher and the rest of the clues only relate to the new treasure.
The answer I already know, 
I’ve done it tired, and now I’m weak. 7 Next Post
