    Default I'll be interested in your TX rationale

    There is a Seat Spring, TX near a rest stop on I-45. It is the only thing I can come up with for the weird chair-spring combination. But there didn't seem to be any other indications for Texas, 45, or the mile, 160.

    Can't wait to see what you've come up with, Doc. I wish you the very best.

    I take the reference to be Springwood - but why and how, I do not know.

    I'm ready to trigger the next phase of this puzzle.

    Any luck?

    Default Anyone in South Carolina?

    Let's look at the STATE clues from each floor we've solved.

    Floor 1: The state is the ARTS that appear on the wall.
    Floor 2: The state is the STAR on the boxes, namely the 'Lone Star State'.
    Floor 3: The state is the ARTS that are on the wall.
    Floor 5: The state is an 8, namely the 8 times the number '21' shows up in the magic square.
    Floor 6: The state is the ARTS that appear on the wall.
    Floor 7: The state is the one under the balloons. How did you get to see that state? 'The clown plays her own game.' What game did she play? A game of DARTS.
    Floor 8: Not sure
    Floor 10: You can see the state hiding inside the FLORID ARTS.
    Floor 11: The state is the ART placed on the wall.

    I'll bet a buck that the state for floor 9 is the STAR of 'Logan's Run', and the IOO degree thermometer on floor 4 is an OHIO missing its '8'.

    This isn't an obvious connection unless we have the 'Star 8' as a clue.

    Why is 'STAR 8' a STATE? Why is 'STAR 8' a START?

    I don't know, but the 'Cannonball Run II', the second race across America, begins when the 12th location is found.

    Mile Marker 3 (from the 3 sprigs on the kitchen-table plant)

    Since there is no "eye image" with the upper and lower
    lid-crescents to denote a double sided rest area...
    (the eyeballs don't count) the # 3 rest area is one of the
    few single-sided rest areas in SC.

    If this is true...
    That means a lot of Red Herrings were used to distract us!

    Anyone in South Carolina near Landrum...at the Welcome Center?
    Our logic may seem convoluted...but if it is the "Number 12" at
    stake here...the clues may intentionally be more obscure.

    davehutz,

    Unfortunately, I don't have time to go on a hunt, and I won't have the time for at least two more weeks.

    I'm hoping these last three fall before then.

    The section in the text where Quello says "Pigs into pants. Firewood into laughter. Emeralds to eyeballs." is really sticking out me. Maybe a cryptogram or cipher? Firewood, laughter, emeralds, and eyeballs all have the same # of letters, but there's too many repeats for it to work as a straight letter for letter conversion.
    Not to mention, I'm not sure what text we'd decode, anyway.

    Default Lat/ Long?

    Pelican, Alaska is located at Latitude: 57.96 N, Longitude: 136.22. Is there a 57.96 anywhere in the book? LOOOONG shot, I know.

    Default Cherry Springs, PA

    Did you know that there is a state park
    in Pennsylvania called "Cherry Springs"?
    (In the bedroom...we have a "Chair-y Spring".)
    It is located on PA Hyw "44"...going along with
    all of the 4's, and 4T's on this floor.

    I know, I know...It is not on an Interstate and
    it is not a rest area....
    but I just couldn't pass up the similarities.

    Maybe my out-of-the box thinking will help
    someone else to see something new.
    AP

    Apparently there is also a very small town in
    Texas called "Cherry Spring"...

    My sense is that the 12 will be found using a mixture of the 12th and 13th floor and possibly the roof, BUT...

    Has anyone tried:
    State - North Carolina (state gem is the emerald! and the bowl of eyeballs may have once been emeralds?)
    Interstate - 40 ("four tees"/"four teas")
    Mile - 136 (from the approximate solution on the board, 136.22)

    Perhaps?
