So hear me all and listen good, your effort will be...
Forrest Fenn’s treasure poem has six stanzas and nine clues.
The 6th stanza:
The sixth stanza contains one comma and two periods, making for two complete sentences.
This stanza appears to contain the last instructions you need to reach the treasure chest (or Stanza 1, perhaps).
Why does this stanza get two sentences, when most only get one? Does that mean that there are two important clues hidden within?
Worth the cold seems to be important. Are we getting wet? Going under a waterfall? A glacial cave? A place named after something cold?…
Why do we need to be brave? Do we have to go somewhere dangerous? Probably not. So, is it referring to a famous Indian Chief or warrior?
Is the treasure inside a tree stump? Under a fallen log? Do we need to go into the woods?
Hear me all and listen good:
The least important of the six stanzas. When Forrest recites the poem, he often stumbles on the Sixth stanza (and also a bit on the Fifth Stanza). Whereas, it appears he knows the first four stanzas perfectly, by heart. So, the clues in the 6th Stanza are likely only clues that help you find the treasure chest once you are already at the final location (and, to a lesser extent, you could say the same thing about the 5th Stanza as well). Only important once you’ve solved it all.
