    Default Andover

    I have just been quickly reading over this forum, and briefly glanced at the book. I don't want to throw anyone off but maybe this might help. Someone referred to a town in Maine called Andover. Well here in Massachusetts there is an Andover, and it is also home to the oldest public apple picking orchard, Smolak Farms. Surrounding Smolak Farms are pine trees and there are hay stacks everywhere. There is also a huge barn there as well. Just seemed too coincendental. Liek I said I haven;t studied this closely.

    This may just be hopeful speculation, but there is an Andover in Virginia in Wise County very near the Blue Ridge area. This area is also famous for apples. There is a very famous estate here that grew apples to export to England a long time ago and were specifically requested by the queen for use in the palace. They were the only apples she would eat! Also, this area is full of native american heritage, including the tribe/ type mentioned in the book. These mountains were the "boundary line" in colonial days, and even later, to the indian territories. Fits very well with the "sun may rise in the east but lowlands will have frost" bit and pine trees are everywhere. Also, The apple farm/estate was started by a man and run with ( later on ) his two sons. Looking for a little more info but this sounds very likely to me. Perhaps just wishful thinking since I live off the Blue Ridge parkway only a few (2 -3 tops) hours from there.
    Why can't they say "Go to this place and here's the treasure. Spend it wisely"?

    The Birthplace of Twing!
