    Default Looking for Hunt to Join

    Hi, everyone,

    I am looking for a "new" treasure hunt to join, as I have not been involved since DAR. There doesn't seem to be a lot of people working on this one, although I recongize several names from past hunts. Should I jump in, order the book and get busy, or is there another one that you know about that has not been running as long as this one? I think Fandango sounds interesting, and it takes place in such a beautiful part of our country, I thought it would be fun to try. I wish I had known about it earlier. RARBOWEN

    A friend and I work on The Alchemist Dar sometimes (even still), but for Christmas I got us both a copy of Fandango. It's a nice variation, and it's also much easier and "new" in our heads than Dar, so we kind of use it as a warm-up before plunging into the toils of Dar.

    Honestly, it's a good read and could be worth $10,000, so I recommend picking it up.

    I have not had much time to work on it, but so far it is fun. There is a lot of interesting history on Mt Desert Island to learn about.

    Happy hunting!

    Thanks, guys. I did order the book and it arrived Friday. I spent several hours yesterday reading through it, lookin for obvious clues, and searching out keys, and lettering around edges. Today, I have been reading through the posts so I would not be so far behind. I am ready to begin looking in earnest now. I hope there is good interest on the forum. I think that is what has made the other searches so much more fun than working alone. I will definitely post anything of interest I find, but won't waste time posting other things. Good luck to all those playing.

    I'm also looking for a hunt to join, but I'm having difficulty sourcing the book in the UK. Does anyone know of any UK outfit that sells it? Amazon.co.uk has let me down! I'd like to avoid overseas shipping, if possible....

    HI. I, too, was looking for a hunt to join. My book arrived yesterday. I have visited MDI every year for the past 13 years (minus one year that we missed). This book looks like a lot of fun, especially with my interest in the area. I am excited.

    Thanks for the info, cw0909.

    I suppose Maine is a bit far away, but my curiosity got the better of me!

    I attempted to order a copy, but wasn't prompted to add extra overseas shipping, so they may not be expecting international orders...we'll see how it goes.

    Let us know if your book does not get to you and maybe we can try to help you get one.

    The book arrived in perfect condition - hurrah!

    I'm absolutely delighted with it; it looks like a great deal of fun. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that the author was also responsible for Bridge to Terabithia, a book I remember fondly from childhood.

    I've had a quick read-through, but there's lots of catching up to do, I suspect!
