Am I missing something completely obvious here? A nudge in any direction would be great. Thanks!
This cypher makes a great salad!

Thanks guys! I thought I had tried it before, but obviously I used every other cipher but that one. Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

3. Time to start working on this chapter.

Hey everyone !.....ordinarily I don't ask for clues.....but.....sometimes the simplest things baffle me. How about a clue to solving _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ? that would be the answer found in the cryptex.......I got several versions of the book.....can't make head nor tail of where......

there should have been spaces between those spaces! like this:

_ _ _ _ ****_ _ ****_ _ _ _

6. All right everyone, GET READY! Tomorrow our first clue should be revealed

What you mean the English of Tierra del feugo?

8. NEW CLUE OUT : ?Always? I am certain that this will be obvious at some point, just not now.

9. Hmmmm....yes this will take some thought! Any ideas?

10. This is so frustrating (in a fun way). Every clue makes sense in some way or another, yet my keys are not correct. . . . yet. Maybe tomorrow's clue will clarify the rest. 16/20 is not close enough. Need 20/20!!
