Who is this Brown guy, and why do we put-in?...
Home: permanent residence, an institution, the place where one lives, targeting, an end point
Old English for home: Ham
Places named Brown:
Brown House - right at the bottom of Browns Hill Road - near the banks of the Little Snake River. Cemetary upstream (end is ever drawing nigh).
Browns Park National Wildlife Refuge - Warm Springs Cliff - Sand Canyon - Brown's Hole - Steamboat Rock (paddle?) - Canyon of Lodore (load ore?) - Hell's Canyon (death) - Echo Park Rd. (hear/listen)
Mt. Sheridan used to be Brown Mountain
Point Sublime named by Beulah Brown, right by artist point on the grand canyon
Norris Geyser has a trail which leads to the park ranger museum - Ranger Brown. End is ever drawing nigh - could mean on the left. could mean death. could mean where a stream ends.
Could mean Tanatalus Creek (which does end here - and go up to the left - 'heavy loads' could be the weight over Tantalus' head)
Brown Mtn. Campground -> Kirwin (abandoned mining town - blaze on mountain right above)
There is a Highway 237 (line # of odd-syllables) in Wyoming - right where it meets Highway 89 (lines 8 and 9 are put in below the home of Brown and from there it's no place for the meek)- and it just happens to be called Grover Auburn (Brown).
Brown Trout - any creek with brown trout
A location with a brown-related name
The Home of Brown appears to be a very important clue. Forrest has said that, if you knew the House of Brown, you could walk right to the treasure. So, it appears that WWWH is the first ‘clue’, and HoB is the second. So, if you can locate the Home of Brown correctly, the treasure can be your’s in short order. Supposedly. Therefore, we consider the HoB to be one of the most important clues in the entire poem.
