    Default The Dead Zone

    As the tokens are being found, you can draw some conclusions from where the remaining tokens are likely and not likely to be. If you draw a "dead zone" on the map surrounding the found tokens, you can clearly see the likely geographical areas.

    This map indicates arbitrary 6-hour drivetime zones around Dragonfly, Snail, and the rumored Caterpiller location.



    Ignore the other pushpins. They are just placeholders, and I move them around randomly.

    Love your "colorful" map...

    Do you have a hidden code in your choice of colors?

    Default Great post!!

    Thanks for the help. I have an excel spreadsheet that helps pull letters if you place the coordinates in the spaces. It helps if you aren't sure your coordinates are column or row.

    If anyone wants it email me at tedlangley@bellsouth.net. I am not looking to claim anyone's find, and am sharing it openly in the spirit of the hunt.

    I would be happy to put other proposed token locations on there. Post suggestions or PM me.

    I used an arbitrary driving distance of 6 hours for that map. I could use other distances as well. Let me know.

    Wow, that's a pretty sweet resource. What kind of program will give you that shape based on minutes of drive time? Those are pretty sophisticated shapes to be only done by hand, and the fact that they're precise and not just circles is very interesting. I doubt Stadther did anything half as sophisticated as this.... so way to go Rusty, he just might hire you to map out his next book.
