    Talking i have a question

    has anyone found out anything about the pages with just the text on it??
    no just stuff about the illustrations

    it does say you can find clues visually and verbally, and i think we have a lot af visual things but not many verbal clues from the text itself.

    Dann,

    I've been using the text mainly when considering various paths that Fandango may have taken. I've not considered anything more profound than that, although I must admit, I'm overdue for some serious sitting-down-and-thinking with this puzzle!

    I can't say that I've found anything more than what others have posted elsewhere...and, again, I've only just dipped in to this puzzle, so don't feel I have any special insights.

    Personally, I'm curious about things like whether we can conclusively link the locations described in the story to the 'points of interest' (the cross icon) on the map.

    If I recall (and I don't have my book in front of me, so please take this with a grain of salt - apologies if I've remembered incorrectly!), there are five 'points of interest' symbols in the illustrations and six 'points of interest' on the map at the end of the book. We can link the text to the illustrations. If the text and illustrations describe a path between these points of interest, then we'd either have (a) a path between five points with one left out entirely, or (b) a path between six points described in the text, but with only five points shown in the illustrations. In either case, it is possible that the missing point of interest is significant.

    I believe all this has been said more eloquently in other posts, but I do think it's an avenue worth investigating.

    Default What are we looking for?

    I know we're looking for a key with instructions to a safe deposit box,but how do you think it will be hidden? In my mind I think it might be a little magnetic box with the key inside attached to a something metal like a sign. My other thought is maybe it's in one of those plastic rocks that people put in the garden to hide a spare keys. We already know that it's not buried, it's on public land, and nothing has to be moved to find it. Any thoughts on this?

    IMHO. I don't think the author would leave it to chance like hiding it in a plastic rock that any investigative 3 year old could snatch up and throw into their stroller.

    I think it's in a spot somewhat guarded. Like a geocache coin.

    The author needs to know it's not in some toybox as a coveted keepsake.

    I personally do not geocache but there are some members on Tweleve that do.

    I'm not saying it is hidden and clued like a geocache coin - but (I think) most that are hidden on national park properties need to be registered with that park. And they may be monitored. Don't really know enough but I am sure someone on Tweleve could enlighten us about it. But my point is that the author may have made sure this hidden key is monitored in some fashion.

    Here are two sites you may want to look at sean:
    Geocaching - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Geocache containers - CoinsAndPins.com

    Maybe it isn't in Acadia...
