    Default You know you're too into this hunt when...

    Last night I dreamed about going "on location" to find a token. I was in a group of five, but I don't remember any names - it could have been any of you. We were on the north Atlantic coast, probably due to a Moden Marvels episode on commercial fishing that my husband was watching yesterday.

    Anyway, we were down on a wharf, and there was a very large oil painting in the same thread of the illustrations in the book. It was hung on a large stone wall down near the water, and it was becoming damaged from the salt water hitting it all of the time. Our reaction was "shoot, now what? Another puzzle?" We were frankly irritated that we didn't just find a darn tree.

    At this point, I woke up for a minute before going back into the dream. Ah, the power of retconning a dream! Back to sleep, I realized that we still needed to reach into the tree's knothole. We cut the painting at the right spot, and found our token. I have no idea which one it was, though.

    I had two treasure hunting dreams last night, and in one of them I broke into the guys house that had created the hunt (although apparently this was something we were supposed to do)!

    In my latest Treasure Trove dream I'm hoisting myself up a large oak. I grab ahold of a decaying tree hole, lift my body like I'm doing a chin-up, and then I see it: something shiny and gold. It's glimmering inside the whole. As I raise my head up, eye-level with the hole, it gets brighter and brighter -- blindingly so. And then, like that scene from Indiana Jones, things start swirling around me and the trees are blowing as if a hurricane has descended. Something's gone horribly wrong! As I let go of the tree hole and try to cover my eyes, I'm lifted by the gale-force winds into the air, and the tree-hole sends out a gold-colored sonic blast.

    And then I wake up, sweating, and lie to my wife about the nightmare. If she knew that I was dreaming about this book, that might just be the end of it.

    Wow! Great dreams!

    I used to have some pretty crazy dreams about the last hunt, including DB, CJ and CJ's 'Mom"! But this one hasn't *disturbed* me enough to affect me that way... yet! There doesn't seem to be as much *urgency* to spend every waking (and sleeping) moment on it. Or, maybe I'm just a lot more relaxed and having a lot more *fun* with this one?

    I'm sure the night will eventually come, though, when something weighs on my mind about the hunt... And, y'all will be the first to know about it!

    Default If I gain nothing else....

    If I gain nothing else.... out of trying to figure out the puzzles in this book, at least I will come away with an ADD diagnosis.

    LOL! I have the same problem!
    The trick is to *stay focused* on one idea.
    Trouble is, I haven't figured out how to do that yet!

    LOL - I had it already. It's sure showing itself with this hunt. I bounce between 'theories' so quickly even my gnat-like attention span can't keep up.

    Okay, so I've been a lurker 'till now, simply because I don't have anything new to offer yet, but I am glad I am not the only one dreaming of this dang hunt!! That said....you know you've been spending too much time on this hunt when you start coming up with even MORE anagrams for the latest "hint: tackle repositorys" clue. One interesting one I came up with is:

    STOP HYSTERIC TOKEN LIAR

    Makes me think of our little "PARAsite" and his obnoxious and obviously hysterical claims! Glad that on this board, we have stopped him!

    Good luck to all!!
