Why not stick it in plain sight by using only the capitalized letters that begin each poem line?
There are 24 lines in the poem, and therefore 21 different 4-letter codes that can be generated using consecutive lines (without wraparound from the bottom back to the top). That would work okay if Forrest had hidden the chest on January 1, 1991 (1-1-9-1) with the 1900 implied. Despite the long odds, there is exactly one date in our 121-day chest-hiding window that can be found using this system: 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.

Scrapbook 163 discusses the fact-checking questions that were asked of Forrest prior to publication of Taylor Clark’s story “The Everlasting Forrest Fenn” in the California Sunday Magazine (which appears inside the L.
