‘The answers I already know… I’ve done it tired and now I’m weak.’
Are ‘tired & weak’ the ‘answers’ that he knows?
And, why does the next thing we are supposed to do involve listening? Why is Forrest giving a speech now that he’s so tired and weak? What’s so important that we need to listen and hear?
The punctuation seems to be important in this clue.
Most people take this sentence to mean that whatever Forrest has done (hiding the treasure), he was tired and weak afterwards.
But, if that were the case, there should be an extra comma after ‘done it’.
‘I’ve done it, tired, and now I’m weak.’
But, there is no comma, which means that tired is HOW he did ‘it’, not how he ended up. He did it tired, not un-tired. So, tired appears to be an important clue. What is something you have to be ‘tired’ to do? Off-roading (which definitely needs tires)?
And, why would you be weak after you’ve done something ‘tired’?
Weak: lacking strength, deficient, infirm, illogical, lacking proficiency, [WEEK]
Answers: I’ve done it tired, and now I’m weak.
Why is the first part of the line set in the past? ‘I’ve DONE IT tired’… Whereas, the rest of it is in the present - ‘and NOW I AM weak’
Weak = Week
Tired = Tired vehicle
We cross a road made by tracked or tired vehicles (tire-tracks).
OF MINOR IMPORTANCE
Our best guess is that ‘I’ve done it tired and now I’m weak’ refers to a location with a name that means or references being weak and tired.
So, it won’t be of much use to you in coming up with a solution for Fenn’s treasure hunt, but it will be useful to confirm or reject potential-solves.
Don’t ignore, but don’t focus all your time on it either.
