    There are two books....all the stories are the same except chapter 2.

    Now this is interesting. I thought I had stayed on top of everything involved with this book, but have never heard that there are two versions of this chapter. Where was this discussed so I can get some further information. The code sequence in question in my book starts at the beginning of the last paragraph on page 31 with "shE TOld Us abouT"

    Yes, the first book I bought was hard copy that I purchased from the website in June 2010. This is the book you have. I then bought a paperback copy on line last year from an Amazon vendor and received the second version. When you buy a book online, you don't know what version you're going to get. When asked about it, Ron said it was 'part of the hunt' or something to that effect. The Chapter 2 questions and answers are the same, but the story line is different. I think there was discussion here about this last year, but not much more was said. Interesting eh?

    That's good to know! I have the "shE TOld Us" version and haven't been able to figure out the code. Oh well, I'll keep plugging along Thanks everyone!

    @jmgirl, something you may be overlooking, is that bacon comes in more than one flavor. If you're using the original bacon, it'll throw you off on the 4'th letter.

    I'm also stuck on this chapter, and I'm wondering what clues are provided by the alternate version of the book. They posted earlier on the official Facebook page that they encourage questors with each version to work together.

    They say the way to distinguish the two versions is by the first 5 words of the chapter, in my book those are, "We went to help a"

    Message me or reply here if you have the other version of the book and you'd like to work together on this.
