I put an entry in of Eric Rommerdale who invented "Easy Hold" by trim...the worlds best toe nail clippers.
It was a reverse psychology look at what toenails were supposed to be used for.
Unfortunately, days before the deadline... Dal DELETED my entry from the contest even though the answer was EXACTLY 31 words. I emailed him and got no response from him at all as to why. So the hell with it. I guess I'm not authorized to partake in contests

. Thanks, grapette. I had thought about that, and variations thereof, over the years. (did you mean 2 4 2 walk?)
I guess 242 is really what Fenn wants us to think about.
Not (0) Far (4) but Too (2) Far (4) To (2) Walk
04242, so both 424 and 242 works, but in the context of full alphabet gematria “toe to toe” works with 424. If we pretend “to” is 2. “To” in gematria is 35, so tecnically it would be 40 35 40
24 and 42 are important numbers to Fenn but to figure out the context is hard...
All the talk of 22 to me hints to kabballah 22 paths and the 10 sephiroth. I think I am one of the only rosicrucian theorists out there on the forum. 24 is symbolic for 24 carats and gold, 42 of the angle where light becomes a rainbow in a prism.
The whole thing is a big mystery... my theory is that there is a straight forward map solution, the layers of alegory, ciphers, hidden clues and messages. Quite a few have been revealed between CC, Thor, Dals and MW, ut my feeling is that it is impossible to pinpoint a solution. That’s why Fenn says imagination is required, because there is no 1+1=2 solution to the poem.
. I think there is some strong information that relates the poem to the realm you mention, but it is a whole separate area for sonsideration and not necessarily along the path of the secular solution (that will lead a searcher to the physical treasure chest).
I believe the solution pinpoints a pretty specific spot.
This comment is mostly for fun, but may have some useful ideas.
Forrests friend, Doug Preston ( who wrote the forward to Forrest new book Once Upon a While ) has written a book called The Pharoah Key. It begins with the decryption of the Phaistos Disk. It discusses the meaning of its 242 ‘letters’ ( yes, 242 ). Part of the discussion relates to the need for five points to form an X. ( see somewhere around p. 38 ).
