    Default Hidden Keys

    Does anyone want to share their count of keys in each picture? I dont have the book right now, but I think that in most of the pictures, there is not more than 2 or 3, except for the picture of Fandango in the beginning, forgot what page, there are many keys on the tree.Still trying to figure out the signifigance of the number of keys.

    I am leaning toward the hidden key to be on the "Quietside" of the island. How about anyone else?

    Default Sea Cliff Drive

    Does anyone know where Sea Cliff Drive is near Seal Harbor? I have seen it written in old books, but dont see it on a recent map.

    Given the info here, the fact that George Cooksey had Sea Cliff Drive constructed in 1896, and the fact that it was about 1.5 miles in length (according to this), I'd say that Cooksey Drive is probably your best bet.

    Hi, I just picked up a copy of this book about a week ago. I am really hooked on this one. I have noticed that there is a lot of history of the island built into this. I am not sure how it all fits but it is fun discovering all of it. The one thing I have not seen mentioned is the fact that every first letter in every row of the story is capitalized. There are also several places where the first letter is capitalized but it is indented as to suggest not to use that letter. Page 13 is an example of this. There are also a lot of words that are capitalized that should not be. I ran an index of coincidence on all of the firsts that are capitalized and the number was extremely high. I have also looked into a simple sub cipher with no positive results. I am currently looking into some type of transposition cipher. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on this.

    Welcome ibjones. I don't think there has been much talk yet about the text. Could very well be a code in there. A transpo cipher sounds a bit difficult for this type of hunt. But possible. I was thinking more along the lines of Morse.

    Good observation on the indented lines, ibjones - I hadn't thought much about that until you pointed it out. And funny you should mention Morse, Rusty - I was just playing around with that last night. But I must admit I spent a lot of time trying to find Morse in ATT and SQ text to no avail, so I am wary of investing too much time in it again!
    Whatever I feel like I wanna do. Gosh!
