    Yippee!
    I would love to see one of these numbers in person finally!
    So the equation solution has been posted many places. Check out this trucker pdf listing all the exits and routes and you'll find it:

    Keep me posted

    I will keep you posted, if my cousins are up for the trip. I see the 136 "rest area" on the trucker site, but it concerns me that it's not listed on the state map:
    Utah State Rest Area Map
    Or am I just not clicking on the right dot?

    If this is just a turnout on one side of the highway, without public rest rooms, it may not be a strong candidate for a dig site. Unless the authors are trying to make this solution even harder.... In the past, successful digs have almost all been at "double" rest areas, with a presence on both sides of the highway at the same mile marker.

    But we shall see! The Utah and I-15 clues are super, so I may just have to look a little harder to feel good about the rest area clue.

    No, it is always good to be cautious. But doesn't that table eyeball look like the veins are in the shape of an S? Southbound?
    Do your cousins live near the spot? Whatever happens, a little treasure-hunting adventure will be nice for them, right?

    Default what if..?

    On the tenth floor, we had to add together the three
    animal ear-tag numbers to find the Hyw. number.

    What if we are supposed to add together the atomic
    numbers of the two highlighted elements on the periodic
    table..Uns and Uno...(107+108=215)? That might give us
    Interstate-215.

    In Nevada and Utah, I-215 bypasses Las Vegas and
    Salt Lake City. In both cases they are referred to as
    the "beltway"...We do have a conspicuous "belt" cinched
    around the yellow balloon.)

    Of course...this would mean having to find appropriately
    numbered rest areas in the vicinity.

    Default another thread

    I have started a separate thread for the
    state of Tennessee...and its possible
    Hyw. and Mile Marker.

    (Is anyone near Nashville?)

    At the risk of oversimplifying - spot #18 on the periodic table says "Mi." Maybe that's just short for "Mile?"

    If so, here's rest areas at mile 18 I've been able to find:
    Iowa I-680
    Mass I-91
    Neb I-80
    WV I-77
    CO I-25
    TX I-35
    NY I-90

    Just a thought, and likely a wrong one.

    Unless, 4 teas and 4 T's equals eight ts.... 80. Now, what points to Nebraska?

    The error on the periodic table that gives us "Mi"
    could be referring to Minnesota.

    There is a single-sided rest area at Mile Marker 215
    on Interstate 94. (We just have to be able to find
    clues to give us that Hyw# 94...hmmm)

    They haven't written back yet. I was honest with them that I wasn't yet convinced about the mile clue, so they may be waiting for more input.

    Also, mile 136 (or 135 on the state website) is pretty far for them. Did you see the comment I made on the other thread last night? (You can click on my name to find recent posts if you can't find it from the main TCWAF page.) The gist of it: One of the anagrams in the new clue from the Gus Twintig website seems to support a Utah solution, although it's not clear that it would apply to Floor 12. (And some of the clues on that site have apparently been red herrings or inside jokes by the authors in the past.)

    But the word "area" is in one of the solutions for the new anagram, and I believe that indicates that this part of the anagram offers info about something near the mile marker. If the area for the dig is near one of the landmarks I believe is referenced (Pillars at Devil's Kitchen), the location would be mile 261 at Springville. That would be less of a distance for them.

    I'll look at some of the other clues today and see if I can find more confirmation about the mile.

    On the other hand, I don't know if these cousins have access to a car or permission to drive on an Interstate....These are the young adult children of my first cousin, so I have gotten to know them only at Christmastime and through Facebook. I'll have to take my cues from them and maybe their mom. I hope they'll be up for an adventure! How often do you find pirate treasure in Utah?

    Fwiw, here is a quick summary of the Utah clue I found for Floor 12 some weeks ago:

    On the 11th Floor, Dodge sits down to read the "Ladies Home Journal."

    Ladies Home Journal = Lemonade + Jars + Silo + uh

    On the inside front cover, in what is presumably Gus' sketchbook, there is a clue that could be a general instruction for each floor. It seems to indicate a triangular strategy where there would be something Green, something Yellow and something Red (ruby + emerald + diamond) at the three corners.

    On the 12th floor, there is a yellow lemonade machine, a green jar and a reddish silo (the mini-cooling tower).

    When you draw lines to connect the central, yellow lemon to the jar and the silo, you pass through the Arch of the fireplace and the T-shirt rack.

    With the leftover letters from the anagram, this solution supports a UTAH location. I find that there are redundant clues like this - your find of the rope/ladder equivalency also provides a strong Utah clue that gives me some confidence. (To the extent I have confidence in anything in this game!)

    I'll keep you posted if I hear anything.
