    Default Final Answer

    I now am pretty sure what city the golden apple is in. From here though its starts to get sketchy. Need to go back through the story to see if I can pick out any street names, etc. The constellations and poem verses lock down the town and even the clock confirms the highway intersection.

    Problem of course is who or where to send the guess...

    maybe this city has a 33rd and a 222nd streets
    or on 33rd st addy 222
    or maybe use the i think it was
    3rd row second tree, then 2nd row 3rd tree. ie streets
    with tree names
    just guessing
    if you think you have nailed it, id go see if its still buried
    since the po box is closed, to the fantsy press co.

    Haven't quite go the street yet. The 2-3's and 3-2's in the poem refer to the constellation.....

    Default Here is what I have - can anyone add to this?

    I believe that the starting city is Jefferson City Missouri as some others have stated. The clues in the poem and the map yield the constellation Cassiopeia. There are 5 major stars Three are magnitude 2 and two are magnitude 3. discard the two dimmest magnitude stars. Looking on the map there is a representation of Cassiopeia using the capitals in the midwest states. Discard the two and pick the omphalos (center star) left. This represents Jefferson City. Get on the highway and go 3 2/3 leagues (11 miles just past St Martins).

    OK - from there? We have pine trees (Pine Street?), place in order (or Red Iron Place)

    Any thoughts from here?

    This is a good theory. Not too far west of Jefferson City is a place called Centertown (Omphalos?). In Centertown is a place called "Apple Creek Farm."

    The PLACE IN ORDER bit I think refers to ordering the state names in such a way that you can extract CASSIOPEIA from them.
    "...it may well be doubted whether human ingenuity can construct an enigma of the kind which human ingenuity may not, by proper application, resolve."
