I have been plugging away at this puzzle for a week now. I thought I had a breakthrough just now, but found no city exists with the name I found. I arbitrarily assigned numbers 1-5 to the 5 kinds of acorns and went through the process tons of times and ways. One of those times got me leaping out of my seat... I got:

N A P A Z I H W N H

Which I took as Whizapan, NH which does not exist.

In my million times of plugging in numbers, I obviously tried to solve backwards using 'SP' but got nowhere. Then I tried 'NAT P' and actually found a way it can work - but the rest comes up jibberish.

I should give up the fight but I know I will be back pouring over the book again in no time.
