    Hmm...maybe the story idea needs a little vampire romance and an heir inheritance twist.

    I don't really write much. But I do watch a lot of sci-fi.

    So CB II is starting to having some significance now that I have added up the miles for all my driving for this hunt. Not counting the 2800 mile flight to Maryland last July, I've driven 2986 miles in Oregon! I'm not exactly proud of this, but at least I got 30+ mpg in my 2007 Honda Fit.

    Just finished perusing the Blunt Chisel and seeing how things are related to the Reunion Rally in Raleighj I'm relizing that real treasure hunters drive Mini Coopers...*sigh*, I'll have to get a different car if I expect to achieve any success around here.

    Also learned another important lesson: don't leave cell phones on strong magnets. Not good.

    I forgot to say my point was that I drove enough around the state that I may as well driven across the country.

    erexere,

    Yeah, we should all add up our miles; we've probably driven to the moon and back collectively! I have to sit down and figure out how many miles have driven over the summer. I, alas, do not have a Mini Cooper either, but did get 50 mpg with my Honda Civic Hybrid, so it didn't hurt too much.
    Plus, I just had a lot of fun! Now that it seems obvious there is no number within drivng distance for me (especially now that I'm back at work), I'm doing the armchair sleuthing thing - and being about as successfull!

    Can't wait to see the final solution to all of these floors, but in the meantime, I enjoy all of ideas being posted.

    When all is said and done, i think there was a very good reason to reference this film.

    I wonder if there's an Arkansas reference in this film. I may have to give it another look.

    Found exactly 2 reasons why Cannonball Run II is mentioned in the mystery/history video.

    Anyone want to take a shot at this?

    I just watched The Spirit of St. Louis with a very sleep deprived Jimmy Stewart. It was awesome to feel like a copilot in the first trans-atlantic flight. You could say the little fly keeping him company is the audience. Talking to the fly keeps us informed. The fly was our Wilson (Tom Hanks in Cast Away). Anyways, the reason I'm mentioning this film is something caught my attention about this really anal-retentive military person on an airfield in one of Charles Lindberg's flashbacks while he's inspecting his men and their planes when a drop of black oil lands on his nose, which sets him off on a tirade about garbage and filth...just when Lindberg shows up with his grungy tattered mono prop. I thought it was brilliant. The thing is, as the guy to whom is responsible for the oil-dripping plane is being yelled at, his superior repeatedly utters his name, which is "Bib". I believe this is something worth considering if anyone has payed attention to Gus' early tweets about Bibs.

    You think this movie has a connection to TCWAF?
