    Default Before noon tomarrow?

    What is the point of telling us that he would find them before noon tomarrow? That is pretty fast considering he has a fortnight (two weeks) according to pg.82.

    Ok lets do some math it was well after midnight when he fell asleep and started dreaming lets say around 2 or 3 AM and he would find them before noon the next day
    thats roughly 33 or 34 hours later.

    I don't understand time cyphers but i think there might be one here. If anyone does could you please explain.

    One other thing that cought my attention, it is their one year anniversary and just by coicidence it hasn't rained in the forest for a year. Is that a clue or is he trying to make a statement about mariage. Just Kidding

    Hey Chris...

    12 is mentioned throughout the story... I composed a list of all the spots under the Text category. Maybe it will help you sort some things out

    I have thought about this, too. Another way to think about it could be that Zac needed to get to Rusful's cave/lab before noon... or in the a.m.

    A lab... a.m..... Alabama?

    Maybe we can only find the tokens between midnight and noon, then they're removed and put back again at midnight.

    Just havin' funsies!

    Hmmm, is that a possibility?

    Actually, after thinking about it all night, perhaps that is a possibility. This would explain HOW he's monitoring them and HOW he knows when one is found and can give you 30 days from that point. We already went over the possibility that SOMEONE has to go check the locations at some point, why not everyday?

    My son just said last night that maybe we need to look at night since MS tells us not to be afraid of the dark.
    Guess I need a big flashlight now

    Maybe he wants us to hunt when the sun is in the east.

    The phrase about "finding them before noon" keeps bugging me, also. I've tried to think along he lines of shadows as mentioned. I tried to think of any institutions, organizations, or businesses that routinely close at noon, but came up empty. Then, keeping in mind the themes in the book, I thought about trees or flowers. There are some flowers that open and close at certain times. There is a website for children that mentions this at

    http://www.smv.org/jil/mll/fivesix/M...ACG-bioclo.pdf

    where it talks about biological clocks, and the garden of Linnaeus where the evening primrose flower opens by 6 am and closes by noon. I don't know if a token could be placed in or near such a flower, but was struck by the connection. Are there any other biological systems that sleep or close at noon?

    Yes, I love these "kids'" sites. Note, the instruction to go out at night and find the North Star. Twinkle Twinkle. Don't be afraid of the dark. By noon tomorrow.
