    Default Historical Hunt - Land Hunts of 2013

    Greetings Everyone!

    Our first Land Hunt - Lyon's Den - has been released in Connecticut.

    This is the first in a series of Land Hunts that will span throughout the summer, which will also include the states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Maine.

    All our Land Hunts will require some level of research, whether it's a simple internet search or visiting libraries and/or historical societies for example. All our Land Hunts require the recovery of what we call a 'Milling', which is a rock with code engraved into it. This code is needed to close that particular Land Hunt and redeem your prize.

    Complete information can be found here.

    For all our new players...our rules can be found here.
    Good Luck to everyone!

    Five days in and our first Land Hunt in Connecticut has yet to be solved. We must have really stumped you with this one.

    Who needs a clue? Comment here. If we get enough feedback, we'll post a clue to get this Land Hunt solved.

    The prize is a $1 1923 Silver Certificate (Large Note).

    I have also solved it, but it is just too far away from me as well! Still waiting for the Internet hunts!

    The land, hunts are nice when they are between, a few people looking some are nearer some then others but some of them take you to the rivers , while others take you on trails etc.. But I really like the Internet hunts best

    I'm surprised this has not been claimed yet. There must be somebody out there in CT with some spare time, a child who likes adventure, and/or an itch for the hunt.
    I wish I was closer or had more time to make the trip. I guess I'll just have to wait until there is a hunt closer to me.

    I have also solved it, in my area of Wisconsin, we have several fireplaces just sitting in the middle of fields. They were built by the same group that had a hand in the place where this hidden milling is. It's very interesting what the government did to keep young men out of trouble, I think we could use some of those programs today!
