    A quick search reveals an I-335 in Kansas with only 1 rest area (at mile marker 132). Don't see how that fits. In Oregon, there is a rest stop at exit 335 on I-84. Don't see how that fits either.

    It's been mentioned that this floor may work a little differently. If so, maybe this number will have some user after all.
    Or since the diagrammed molecule is C2H3O5N, maybe 235 is supposed to be highlighted, rather than 335. There is at least a mile 235 in Ark. on I-40, though no exit with that number I guess.

    I was looking at this one last night as well and something clicked for me. I think that this is a good solve. Quello, as an alchemist, turns stuff into other stuff. You have to work backwards a little to get the original SHM.

    Arkansas (Ar) was turned into another 8-letter state Michingan (Mi) off the periodic table

    4 teas were turned into 4 T-shirts (I-40)

    C2H3O5N (molecular formula) was turned into C3H3O5N (empiric formula) (235 into 335)

    Arkansas I-40 MM 235 eb rest area at Forrest City. Good Luck!

    I come to that conclusion by counting the different
    colored eyeballs on the "kitchen" table:
    2 green
    4 brown
    3 blue

    It may be worth a look.

    Stercox,
    I came up with the same area but exit 243 using the eyeball colors.
    Someone should check both exit 243 and 235!

    Nice job, stercox! I really like that solution. If I had more time, I'd go check it out myself.

    FWIW....

    The periodic table was produced/printed between the years of 1988 and 1994.
    This is based on the years of element discover and naming of newer elements.

    I do not know if this fact is relevant.

    Default The wall paintings

    Perhaps the hangings on the wall near the entrance suggest the ordering for the eyeballs in the bowl: medium-sized brown meteorite/rock, large-sized green Helium, and tiny-sized blue rings of saturn. Going from big to small gives you 2 4 3 when you put the eyeball numbers together the same way.

    Wouldn't you use the 'He' as a 'zero' or ' 'two' within this logical framework.

    Just another point to ponder....the bottom of the Periodic Table, as we all know, says Unp, Unh, Uns, Uno, Une, Unn...and has different coloration to draw our attention. An easy anagram of the last letters after the "Un" spells out "phones". Perhaps the dig site is by the phones or by the tree by the phones or because of the "un" is opposite the phones or something to that effect. I'd check it out myself but just can't. Hope this helps someone find it!

    No unusual coding there. Those were the designations of the elements
    at that time - between discovery/creation and the naming.

    I was studying Chemistry at the time (see comment above) and it was not
    unusal at all to call the unknown/unamed Elements by those place holders.

    The notations used on the periodic chart were put there before the elements were named and stand for the atomic weight numbers 105-110, with one exception.

    105= Unnilpentium Un(one) 1 n(nil) 0 p(pent) 5
    106= Unnilhexium Un(one) 1 n(nil) 0 h(hex) 6
    107= Unnilseptium Un(one) 1 n(nil) 0 s(sep) 7
    108= Unniloctium Un(one) 1 n(nil) 0 o(oct) 8
    109= Unnilennium Un(one) 1 n(nil) 0 e(enn) 9

    The one exception I mentioned above is the symbol they used for 110 they used Unn which would actually be 100 Un nil nil, it should be Uun Un-un-nil.
