    I've tried this link several times since the original post, but haven't been able to get it to work.

    just checked out the link and got all caught up on the clues... if you could call them that. I dont know about the rest of you but I am having a hard time picking out anything that remotely resembles a clue. Sure, there is the phone number and "Anderson..Sky high" but the rest (especially the desert shots) seem clueless....no wait, maybe that is just me that is clueless.

    Cool! But other than the phone number and the Anderson thing, I don't see any clues either...

    Actually, FYI...you have to click the thing that says click here or something...then you can get codes and stuff...pretty cool! But are they supposed to spell out anything?

    Where did you find something that says "click here"? All I saw was the video and the picture of the car. There is that icon in the bottom left, but all that seems to do is restart the video.

    Seems to be quite a bit of confusion on this one. To start off the main site only shows the clips previously aired on TV. There is text box below the video that explains what is happening and if your having a hard time seeing the words from the phone and such. To actually get to substantial clues it seems you need to click on the 'Enter the Courier' with the omega symbol and register (put in all your personal info, kids make sure you get your parents permission!)

    Once registered you are granted access to another part of the site. Along the bottom of the screen are 7 tabs. Clicking on each one produces a mini movie that when reaching the end will allow you to drag and drop a clue from the last frame of the movie onto the descrambler on the right. Dragging and dropping all 7 clues (the last one has yet to be released) and using the descrambler allows you to chance to win the Pontiac Torrent.

    So far this doesn't seem like an actual hunt, just a matter of exploring the website and entering with a mass of others for a drawing for the Torrent. I haven't seen anything and the impression that I get is that the person who wins the Torrent is going not going to be anyone who cracks a secret puzzle but is just a random winner from a drawing.

    My .02 on the matter.

    thanks for that info C3....was sure I was going to have to start trying to spell out words with the dust being left by the fleeing ATV and helicopter.
