Hidden hints and clues
I believe Forrest hints at the location of the chest all the time.
for instance, the post below were Forrest mentions a rattlesnake and a griz.
There is nothing uncommon about a rattlesnake being found in
New Mexico, in fact New Mexico is full of them.
However, there is one species of a rattlesnake that is rare in New Mexico.
So rare, it’s on the indangered species list.
It’s only found in SW New Mexico. So, why mention it?
Could it be hinting at the snakes habitat,
describing an area the chest may be hidden.
