While I spent a ton of time figuring out the poem, I also spent way too much time building a fantasy about what would happen when I found it. Giving up that fantasy is way harder than accepting that I'm not, and will never be, the finder. Knowing a few details about the solve would be enough for me to get closure about the chase, but it'll take another goal, quest or pipe dream to supplant the the fantasy of bringing Forrest the bracelet and telling everyone on the blogs that they should have listened to me .

Yeah, I am having a real tough time letting go. The CHALLENGE ITSELF was addictive. Ever thought of how little of a reward it would have taken to see it thru? 10, 20, or 30 thousand? Why couldn't Fenn have settled on a much lower prize like say 100,000? Then I feel like our odds might have been better.
Yeah, it sucks. I didn't mind so much not finding it when the summer's were over, there was always next year's search. But now there's no more next time.
