    Well, my fellow Steinitzians, this is how I spent my last Sunday. It wasn't an oak tree (Yorah is for sure an oak),,,,,,,but,,,,it was definitely worth "looking over". Already, this treasure hunt has had real fruit....my family and I together on a journey to the coast....to search for a token. You should've seen them scrambling in the branches.....with me at the bottom, yellin' at 'em...."hey, I REALLY don't think he hid any tokens UP THERRRRE !!!!"

    I had a great time with my family exploring the "Octopus Tree" and anything NNE of it that we could look at....down at the Oregon coast this past Sunday.

    What the pictures don't show is the "Overlook" that will take your breath away that is within 50 yards of the tree looking south high on a cliff above the Pacific Ocean.

    I had been to this spot many many times, and this particular place has always held a special mystical magic for me. It hit me the other day,,,,that it was definitely a place to go exploring for treasure.

    I do invite you to look at the pictures on the URLs below.

    When I "remembered" the tree, found these pics on the net, and showed it to my grandaughter, who loves the book, she gleefully exclaimed, "Grandma, it's YORAH !!"

    In the end, having found no token, I thought to myself,,,,,,well, MS darn well SHOULD have hidden one there !! Matter of fact, the big wooden sign at the tree says it grew that way (altho the Indian legend would tell us another tale) because of the sheltered nook it is in. I'd say that describes a sanctuary to a "T".

    especially look at the 2nd pic on the following page:

    Not a doubt in my mind, that any hunting you do here will be:

    Happy Hunting !!!![/b]

    Hunnytree,

    When I saw the picture of the O Tree, I know why you had to go check it out. It does look like a perfect match to Yorah. I'm glad you had such a great time with your family. I spent my Sunday watching my daughter almost hit an over the fence homerun in PSU's win over 13th ranked U of O softball team. Her hit was a stand-up double and she scored the winning run. Although neither of us scored a token, it sounds like we both had a great time.

    Pam, Hunnytree, exanor, amatwrestler, everyone else from steinitz - soooo good to see you. Already a bit of nostalgia, eh? I just realized that this puzzle began in the middle of the Steinitz rage - we could have been doing both, though I don't think I could have maintained my pace on the other board if I had been posting here as well. As you can tell, I am not as eager to post here because everything seems to have been covered fairly well... so far.

    Hello fellow Steinitzians! Good to see a bunch of the old gang here. I changed my handle from Slim Won to Huge Scarab for this search. It anagrams to A BUG SEARCH and has the obvious scarab reference back to the urn search. Debz, I didn't realize that was you (weave), PM me with your e-mail address. I've got that word frequency analysis in an excel spreadsheet. Also a big hello to amat, dots, hunny, enaxor and michael!

    Default Any Leeds?

    I keep wishing Natalie, Michael or Peter would send us a journal about this hunt!!! My eye over there is blinking like a firefly in distress!!

    I've been spending lots of time in the text and away from the pictures, codes and 5x5 boxes for a bit. Trying to get my bearings on how the story is laid out.

    Hope all you other brain-crains can help us crack this search. Where the heck is Norman when ya need him??? hahahah

    This is weave from Steinitzenville.
    The only token I found was SQUAT!!!

    I guess I should've thought of this earlier, since I noticed a few familiar names.
    But I never got around to joining SPA, too busy getting back to my LAS
    (life after steinitz)
    I was Clueless there, and now I'm Clueless here, so on it goes.
    Good to "see" you all.
