    Default Map of USA

    If you rotate the picture counter-clock-wise 90degrees it looks like a map of the US. The location of the eyes are the cities in which the jewels are located?

    Is this posted somewhere else?

    You look like you may be on to something there. I need to superimpose a map over the top to see where treasures may be, but it looks like there may two within six hours of me.

    I can't see how that would give you an exact precise location.

    It wouldn't but it could be a validation to someone that has solved one or more of the puzzles

    Someone posted something similar to this. How would you know how to overlay the image? You would need some sort of reference point.
    ok.. I can see I won't get anything done until 2007!

    Along these lines, anyone think that maybe Pook is somewhere in Ohio, that being the dark area on the picture, and not an area with one of the other TWELVE faces?

    Default rotate clockwise seems better

    rotating counter-clockwise would seem to deprive the East Coast of a sufficient number of tokens (as a generality you could say one is in Maine, one in Georgia based on a counter clockwise rotation).

    rotating clockwise gives a more representative distribution: 4 on the east coast (almost seems to be the Eastern Seaboard), 3 midwest/southeast, 3 in the rocky mountain states, then 2 on the Westcoast.

    any eye (presumably a location) is easily reached in a days drive from somewhere, and the count of 12 just seems too coincidental. Obviously it's not directly helpful in finding a *precise* location (nobody would expect him to give that much in a single drawing), but perhaps useful in theorizing/confirming a 'region' (50 mile radius?) within a state. I know i'll be reluctant to consider a central california location, it appears the two west coast eyes are SoCal and perhaps Oregon. Time to make a scaled down USA map.

    Default forget the east coast

    after a bit of research, i realized my geography knowledge of the US was severely lacking. A counter-clockwise rotation fits much better.

    a google search using "map of usa" gives this as the 2nd hit:

    www.50states.com/us.htm

    i traced over the map (19" monitor) and it does fit pretty nicely 'as is' over the page in the book - all the eyes are within the U.S. But then it dawned on me that a 14" monitor or a 21" , combined with different screen settings would give wildly different sized maps. So this whole idea is probably moot ... but a roughly 8" long USA map does fit over the eyes, giving a good distribution. The large black spot hits the Great Lakes pretty well. In this scenario, the East Coast is severely lacking however, with one in Maine, one in Georgia. Still, i'd say a location could be reached in a days drive from anywhere.
