As a amature treasure seeker like so many, I decided to share something on Dal Neitzel's Site. Shortly after it was removed... why? dunno Go ask him... but see what I posted on it on Sept. 9, 2015... Maybe its worth looking into..

Here is the link that I posted before Dal removed it: Dal.pdf


(Introduction Verse)

Key elements in the first verse: Gone Alone, Treasures


(Fishing verse)

Begin at Canyon Lake and take it down (also references time of year Sept to Nov. to search)

Not far but Farley Creek.

Put in below the rusty brown soil and home of the grizzley bear.


(Pioneer Verse)

From there its no place for the weak (Joe Meek)

The end is drawing near left. (Nigh = Left of the animal i.e. Left of Fox Lake)

There'll be no going up Russell Creek (your creek = Osborne Russell)

Just high water above the load. (In Fox Lake)


(Location Verse)

If you've been smart and found the blaze

Look quickly down and your quest will end.

But stay awhile and enjoy the view.

Just take the chest and don't disturb the wilderness.


Misc. Notes:

References Treasure & Trove. Treasure Trove is defined in the Forest ByLaws. Interesting read.

Your effort will be worth the cold. (Either cold water (sept) or Cold temperatures (Nov.).

If you are brave and in the wood. Wood = Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness

I give you title to the gold. Gives legal right to the finder. Legal agreement to the treasure. Look up the Forest Bylaw and you'll see why he say's this.


So after you figure out all the poem has to offer... what is really the blaze. And how is someone wise enough to figure it out. Now Dal himself has dismissed this... why? well Forrest has ruled out somethings to assist you in the location of the blaze. But things Forrest hasn't said are Longititude & Latitude, numbers are in the poem or the location is indicated in the poem.

So what makes this so important?

I BELIEVE, the poem contains the precise location of the blaze as the intro to the poem describes. How? The NINE clues.

If you THINK about the poem and focus enough it will lead you to the treasure. (THINK in caps was responded in an email by Forrest before).

In the poem there are exactly NINE CAPITAL I's. I is the 9th letter of the alphabet. Coincidence? Maybe but like many agree Forrest architecturally designed this poem and everything is in its place for a reason. But what is so important?

Well.... you take all the Capital letters in sequential order and change them from letters to numbers.... it turns into a second puzzle. A numbers puzzle. Why numbers? The nine clues in the poem. This is the key that tells you to changes all the capital letters into numbers.

Now wheres the blaze? That is something of approximately 2,000 possibilities once you've determined this. And this is why I believe FOX LAKE is the location. Figure the numbers out and it will lead you to the lake.

The poem merely describes the location and the numbers give you the precise location as described in the introduction to the poem. Otherwise how can he precisely give you the location. Think about this. If Forrest says the treasure is in Fox Lake. Is that precise enough? I would say close but no. So there has to be something more. And this is what I think it is.

For any that are interested, I will give you the exact location that I belive it to be. Or determine yourself where the location is with the numbers.


Here is Forrest’s poem with nine clues that will lead you precisely to the treasure and to end of his Rainbow.

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.

Begin it where warm waters halt
And take it in the canyon down,
Not far, but too far to walk.
Put in below the home of Brown.

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.

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.

So why is it that I must go
And leave my trove for all to seek?
The answers I already know,
I’ve done it tired, and now I’m weak.

So hear me all and listen good,
Your effort will be worth the cold.
If you are brave and in the wood
I give you title to the gold.
