    Default TGAT solution

    I also have a solution for this puzzle. I almost hate to say that, because there are some mean-spirited people out there.

    However, the location of my solution has a road that is roughly shaped the same as the golden apples' chain in the picture in the book. The over and over again clue refers to an echo, but do not do anything dangerous because of this clue. The ALTO and S. Dakoda clues make sense in my solution. Also, there are two word clues in the pictures. FAZE has been pointed out, but has been misinterpeted. The other clue in a picture has not been pointed out yet.

    My problem is that I do not know exactly where to dig. The location has several rows of pinetrees. I looked for a boulder, but could not find one. One spot has three pinetrees in a row with the lower branches removed. The clue: a car has two headlights discard the dimist, suggests that you would discard the low beams(beam=tree branch?).

    There were other things of interest at the location. Tennessee was writen on the side of a bridge, and the initials JR were cut into the top of a tree stump.

    As I have said, I do not know exactly where to dig. I would be happy to take Cam up on his offer to go with him to the location, or I am willing to share the Golden Apple with anyone who does know where to dig.

    Do you happen to have a metal detector? Or one you could borrow? I wonder if after all these years if the clay apple that I always presumed it was encased in might be degraded due to the weather. It's a slim chance, but still possible. I wouldn't go out and buy one, just because if it's not degraded, you won't find it using one, but it's an idea.
    Anyhow, I hope you find it!!

    Good luck dp8.

    I like Jagular's suggestion of the metal detector. Heck, if Walmart has them, buy and return. Pack a picnic lunch, a camera, a shovel and a smile. Throw on your favorite music through an IPod and make a day of it...two if you need. Just try to Leave No Trace as best you can.

    Being on-location is always so exciting to find or not.

    Hunt Happily!- Domino

    Thanks for the encouragement.

    We do have a White's Spectrum XLT and we could go visit the location next weekend. However, the metal detector is only good to about 12 inches deep, and that is pushing it. But, nothing ventured is nothing gained.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    My reservation has been made. I have a mini suite so there's room to sit around and chat if needed.

    Was reminiscing about the last reunion. Below are the links. Hopefully it will inspire some of you to join this years reunion.

    I think there must have been about 35 people there which included Twelevers and their families. It was a great time.

    This years will include a lot of fun stuff. A weekend away by yourself or with your family enjoying quality time is worth it. Also a nice break from school at just the right time.

    If you are thinking of attending and need to fly I will gladly be available to pick up at the airport. Just PM me.
