    Default Delaware

    LurkerM,

    If the other rest are you're referring to is Smyrna, I visited the site to have a look approx. 6 weeks ago. The site itself is perfect, LOTS of trees...so many in one area that I'm not 100% positive that I looked at every single one. But I gave it a good search. Lots of people there, too.

    The only thing I don't like about this rest area is that it's a memorial site to our fallen military men & women - makes me wonder if the authors would place a number there. On the other hand, it's kind of fitting, as these heroes are our own national treasures. Good luck!

    Default Other rest stop in DE?

    LurkerM, what other rest stop? The only one that the interwebs show is I-95, exit 5.

    FWIW, I think it's gotta be this one. Y'all are right - we're being hit over the head with this clue. ("Dig-dugger" might also refer to the fact that this rest area's been, y'know, freshly dig-dugged.)

    I should read more carefully: I see that the other rest area is in Smyrna, although it's not off an interstate like all the others have been, nor are there any compelling clues as of yet that would lead us to Route 13 (right?)...

    Also, it occurs to me (and others, I see, on the "Non-Book Clues" thread) that the "Delaware" clue might be telling us that it ISN'T Delaware -- i.e., "What's bigger than a red (h)erring" = Delaware, a humongous red herring/whale.

    I'm more enamored of the notion that it might be that re-opened rest stop, though. Even though I can't possibly get there any time soon.

    Default Well the other "rest stop" that i was thinking about..........

    If it is in Delaware, I believe that it is probably the exit 5, I-95 solution....so there is no reason for me not to mention the other "rest stop" here.

    The other rest stop is not even technically a "rest stop". It is a Harley-Davidson store, museum, restaurant & public bathroom.
    Mike's Famous Harley-Davidson Roadside Rest Stop

    It is located just south of the Delaware Memorial Bridge on I-295 (aka Rt. 40). This road connects the NJ Turnpike (I-295 at this point) and I-95.

    It is just like any other rest stop and I have stopped there for a drink, to use the facilities and to rest. The only difference is all of the motor cycle memorabilia.

    Really I think it is exit 5, I 95 or a red herring, but if I am passing by I might as well check it out.

    According to the references I've seen, the memorial garden is to people who have been killed on the highways. The Korean Veterans highway is nearby. But you've been there, I haven't, must be a military memorial too?

    Default Smyrna, DE rest area

    Jay, you're right. The Smyrna rest area IS dedicated to the memories of those killed in auto accidents. I was confusing this rest area with another. Thanks for the correction!

    I have to disagree with this backing animal painter's comment. The chalkboard has been the key to the on-site find, the treasure map of sorts on not where but how to unearth a number. I assume that at the very least numbers 1 through 11 will be found that same way, as the ones to this point have been found as such.

    Being on the fence that number 12 will be the same, thinking that maybe the other chalkboard holds a secret to how to unearth it, 12 may not be a marker on a tree. You have that sideways 8/ twisted tire shape and an arrow pointing away from it to some hash marks.

    Default Mobius strip

    Domino,
    I have been looking at the Mobius strip on the blackboard, too.
    (Since the blackboard on the first floor held an elemental piece
    of solution-finding information.)

    The arrow after the strip, with the attention-getting lines around
    the tip of the arrow, are drawing attention to that image..or maybe
    the molecular symbol after it.

    A Mobius strip has no beginning or end...Whatever is written on it
    would be able to be started at any point. If we look at the numbers
    in the molecular symbol in their different possible positions, we get:

    335, 353, 533 (this does not include the "1" which is understood for N)

    Just throwing this out there for consideration.

    After Domino called attention to it, I was looking at that blackboard arrow again yesterday, too. I concluded that it was pointing to the grouping of items in the corner of the bedroom. If you draw a straight line from the arrow, it goes through the cake, cups, curtain and cover (or lid) of the toilet. Nearby is a chair and coil, and the cake could be a covered chocolate cake. Lots of the letters in these words are also in the C3H3O5N formula. Don't know if this is significant or not.

    Default Chalkboard arrow

    could this just be telling us to count the arrows in the picture?
