    I am not sure if this has been mentioned, but the sign seems to have been inspired by a road sign from Barrow, Alaska (highest point in US). I posted an image of it in the following link:

    It's great to see some activity on this site again!

    As far as the Alaska sign, I think this was probably based on one or more signs in Maine. There are signs like this all over the state (and in other states?), the most famous being this one:
    MAINE'S FAMOUS SIGNPOST | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    pointing to many of the place names in Maine that are in other countries; Peru, Mexico, Paris, Sweden, etc. (unfortunately, there is no Nepal, Maine) There are other local signs posted at people's camps (summer cottages) pointing in all directions, are multicolored, and resemble the Fandango signs.

    This one is also in Maine (scroll down the page to get to the picture): “North to Alaska, North to—–” No Wait its Maine | On the Road Again

    I remember in the interview I heard with Pel Stockwell he said everything you need to solve the master riddle is in the book, that he and his brother were not internet people, and that the only thing that might help you is to know a little island history. I'm trying to keep that in mind as I work on the book.

    .
    I think it has been previously shown that the white and red pointed signs on this page, give the acrostic (reading top to bottom)

    YELLOW BO(n, not pointed)OK

    If I recall, putting the red signs in numerical order gives

    LOW LEY

    where a ley is a line connecting things of importance, and there is a

    YELLOW LOW LEY on the page (the information it gives is backed up by other codes on the page).
