    Default Jigsy Squonk?

    The Squonk is a legendary creature reputed to live in the Hemlock forests of northern Pennsylvania. Legends of squonks probably originated in the late nineteenth century, at the height of Pennsylvania's importance in the timber industry.

    The legend holds that the creature's skin is ill-fitting, and covered with warts and other blemishes, and so it hides from plain sight and spends much of its time weeping. Hunters who have attempted to catch squonks have found that the creature is capable of evading capture by dissolving completely into a pool of tears and bubbles when cornered. A certain J.P. Wentling is supposed to have coaxed one into a bag, which while he was carrying it home, suddenly lightened. On inspection, he found that the bag contained only the liquid remains of the sad animal.

    Funnel cake or funnelcake is a regional specialty food originally associated with the Pennsylvania Dutch region of the United States, popular around the U.S. at sporting events, carnivals, fairs, festivals

    Things seem to be Pennsylvania-oriented so far for this room.

    Just bouncing ideas around...

    While looking around the net for info on the squonk I came across this interesting tid-bit:
    A 2002, short story by Glen David Gold entitled "The Tears of Squonk, and What Happened Thereafter" alludes to the myth and gives the name to the deceitful clown of the story, who cries "heedless crocodile tears."

    and:
    Finally, he is also an active member of the McSweeney's publishing house, and his short stories have appeared in a number of the issues. (one of which was the above-mentioned "Squonk" short story)

    hope this helps, G

    Default Varin's Number?

    Until Varin confirms where she found her number, here is my guess (for what it's worth).

    The only area uncovered by balloons on the map is generally near Chicago/Indiana. There are 80 balloons. The ketchup bottle has a 56.

    State: Indiana
    Highway: I-80
    Mile Marker: 56 (Rolling Prairie Rest Stop)

    This rest area is about 30 minutes from where Varin lives.

    Maybe??

    Varin just posted at Unfiction. Here are her photos of number 7!

    Floor 7 is correct. Number and floor match on this one.

    Cool, "30 mins. (or less)" really worked for her in this. Way to go V!

    Default Hidden Word

    Port-a-potty

    "L" by rug and tire pump
    "A" playing card
    "N" wall paper in sign language, middle and index digits curled
    "D" shower/bath shape.

    = PORTLAND

    We know this floor's hidden number was found in Indiana at 90.89 but there's something very purposeful about the way this hidden word pops out.

    Any theories tie in with this?

    Something seems significantly more special about this floor since the No.7 corresponds to the 7th floor. Are the multiple flats only telling us to track the popped balloons? What's the rake about? I'm theorizing that the rake is just clue for the word "garden" or "gardener"

    I just thought the rake was there because it is funny when you see a clown step on the bottom of a rake and the handle comes up and hits the clown right in the nose.
