    Default Cash Hunt - December 1

    Anyone else here doing this hunt?

    I'm pretty sure I got the first four lines but am stuck on the 'circle for a'.

    I am still pondering what line one means.

    This is a cryptic clue. The 'A' stands for a name. Think of something famous associated with 'A' in the location you're at.

    This is a straight cryptic clue! Come on, man!

    Having worked on The Professor's Journal seemed to have helped me with this month's hunt.

    Thanks Molnar. Worked it out now. I had the wrong decedent before which didn't help.

    I am in a cathedral town now and think I am looking at the right A. Trying to go left to a hag now.

    I believe I found the hag and it seems pretty obvious that I need to find a farm but I just can't seem to connect it. So close...

    Wrong Hag. There are two possibles. Found the right one and have finished. This hunt wasn't that bad this month. See you next month!

    Finally have a chance to look again. I was greatly wrong on the A, but have come round to the right one I think. Going left 8 seems to be oKay, but on to the hag from there is where I am stymied.

    This is where I am at too. Thought I had an author using a pseudonym, but cannot find any more info on her.

    Thanks

    What I have is a little reminiscent of an updike Novel with a farm attached. It seems to be sort of a charade to a placename I think.
