    Default Reverse Engineer Time: PRAYER BOOK CROSS

    Hello again from an absolutely beautiful afternoon at 65 degrees in the Bayou Country!

    Just returned from vacation in Lake Tahoe--Rusful now redeemed.

    Perhaps we can now reverse engineer a solution?

    1. It's not an anagram of the Starz centers. Apparently, something had to be done with them.
    2. Good place to begin is probably with 5 x 5 coordinates and see if anything looks useful from clue 4 or 5.

    Congratulations again to the Rusful token finders!

    Out of the (24) center letters, can we, in part, get "Golden Gate"?

    Interesting, Q.

    Very possible. I don't think he intended for us to anagram 24 letters. If this is the case, the should have been some method to the madness.

    Looks like that park may be a treasure magnet. The leading theory for a location of one of the buried casques in The Secret is none other than GOLDEN GATE PARK.

    hope MS didnt unearth the casque while hiding Rusful


    .........time to add a DAR ring to my collection.........

    Congratulations Amy! The report says they looked for three hours in the rain and were about to give up and go home!

    Animal Painter, good work...I guess I am hoping like Doc that MS wouldn't have expected us to anagram those 24 letters! Also, I've never seen "gn" used anywhere else as an abbreviation for garden. Is "gn" really an abbreviation for garden?

    Like Doc I'm thinking there might be something else to pinpoint this location, or to order these 24 letters. That seems like just too many to anagram, because using abbreviations one could get hundreds of different messages, how would they ever know for sure which one is right? I see where you can get "Golden Gate Pk". MS hadn't used abbreviations that much before. What do you think?

    So do you think that MS will post this as the solution for Clue 5?

    Default Park?

    Here is a link to the park

    http://www.lightight.com/GGP/mem_images/MapMem_Rd3.html


    Here is a section of the park where the cross is



    I also noticed that in this area there are 18 dots represnting memorials



    This is the entire park with all of the gardens marked.

    and here is a picture from the same site of a large oak



    Hmmm I wonder if this could be the tree?
