    Default Cash Hunt - August Part B

    Second puzzle of month is up. I'm stuck at the hair straightening line. Any ideas?

    What can one use to straighten one's hair? And remember, those Brits call their places the strangest things. You are probably at the hardest part concerning linking things together.

    Well I was trying some searches with "flat iron" but to no avail. Let's take one step back. Which tree location are we dealing with? Where it was replanted (The FG of W) or where it originated (AO school)? I thought the latter, since it was a girl's school and the hair straightening was just a confirmer.

    Just out of curiosity, Molnar, you seem to get these so quickly and so easily. What's your secret?

    The tree location is neither of the two locations you mentioned. Remember my advice from above, and take the last two words of line three literally.

    As for my secret, I drink lots of Brawndo (It's got what plants crave!). I certainly don't get them easily, it generally takes lots of searching and turning-around at dead ends. In this particular case, I happened to be up at 3 am when the clue was released. So I got an early start!


    P.S. You are not interpreting 'straightening hair out' quite right, but you have the right general idea. Think of it perhaps as 'straightening up hair'?

    Can we at least agree that the type of tree is famous for Christmas Day 1, or have I completely messed this up?

    Yes, that is the right type of tree. Consider that you aren't looking for an actual tree.

    Ironically, I found the next step without the tree but by simply googling hair straightening implements. I'm all the way down to the last line, but I can't connect PC to the name of HF. It's not in the photo and I can't find much history that lists actual people. I'm still really curious how the tree lead to the hair, because even knowing the end result I can't backpedal to find the connection. Oh well, doesn't matter now. Also, I'm assuming the mistake in the spelling of highlight is simply that as it didn't pertain to the next step.

    Never mind. I figured it out. These puzzles frustrate me so much I want to throw my pancakes into the ocean, which is just what I'll do with this answer. Still have no idea how the tree connected but didn't need it. Good luck everyone still struggling with this. (Which seems to be pretty much just us three or four.)

    Been working hard on WibbleFishBanana - need to get moving on this one. Am I searching for RH as highwayman?
