    I'm giving this fourth hunt ("Gone surfin'") a try. Deadline is 3/14. Anyone else working on this? I would love some help sorting out the cyphered text, if anyone has expertise with that:

    Here is the website for this competition, if anyone had trouble finding it: World Wide Treasures Competition

    Apparently there is one of these competitions for non-members once every couple of months. The correct solutions are thrown into a hat and one winner is drawn. The prize is a membership in this group, allowing access to more hunts with valuable prizes. I think this group is based in the UK but they have hidden real prizes (silver eagles, for instance) in the U.S. in some of their members-only hunts.

    Thank you to the Twelever who found the solution to the cipher, just in time, and to others who offered input. This was a vignere cipher, and the key word was "sandstone." Sorry I didn't provide enough information in my post a few days ago - I am new to the world of ciphers.

    The Armchair Treasure Hunt group has indicated that there will be a 5th World Wide Treasures Competition posted soon, so keep an eye out if you want a good, relatively quick workout for your brain.

    This "World Wide Treasures" is new to me. This new one is number 5. Can anyone say if they sort of continue, as a story? For example, the guy in this story (#5)found the clue to #5 in a cave. I am wondering if World Wide Treasures #4 had the solution being the cave... Does anyone know? If so, is there a place where one can go and look at the previous solutions?

    Thanks.
