    Mine's about 30 mi away. I'm heading out there right now. I'll see if I can get a few extra flyers. They say if you are the winner, you have to show an actual flyer, received from a dealership, to qualify to receive the award.

    I picked up my map at the Volvo dealership yesterday and the treasure hunt seems to be a combination of a Myst game and at the end, a survivor type challenge to find the buried car. The other thing is that getting involved later in the game really doesn't hamper your chances of winning because at certain stages you can't continue until a predetermined date when an e-mail is sent with the next clue. It seems fun but it's gonna take some luck and good clicking to win it seems.

    John-- I'm with you on this hunt. Picked up my map a couple days ago. For some reason figuring out that first puzzle took me WAY too long. I almost gave up; there's a testament to reading the directions (in this case, in the first email) VERY THOROUGHLY! Ha. Anyway, it's pretty fun, but super easy. And the whole 'solve til this point, then wait for this email in a few days thing' take away a little bit of the rush and challenge. Guess that's the point.

    However, I didn't like today's email riddle 'clue' that was pretty worthless! I was so excited to see it at first.

    I also got the map today. I got the first solution right. This takes you to the next map. However, I am not sure what it is that they are saying to do. ANybody else got to this point
