    Meaner - Even if someone was, I think per the rules they cannot say as it could disqualify them.

    A better question would be can the map sequences be solved at this point?. Meaning are all of the clues needed to complete a map available NOW?. Can a map be solved with only the book, the companion book and the website?. I did a back of the envelope calculation and concluded that the author needs to sell a LOT of books to cover the costs of this hunt, ie: website, publications and prizes. It would make fiscal sense not to award any prizes until the costs are met. With that in mind has anyone received a definitive answer to any of the above from the author or his employees?. I held back on this until I completed all of the chapters but now I am as baffled as the next guy. I am considering putting away all concerned with this hunt and waiting until someone actually claims an Eagle before spending anymore time on it.

    Default Additional Thoughts

    According to the "official" rules in the front of the book. The author can at any time decide that no one will solve the clues and claim a prize and can therefore decide to end the hunt, with no refund I might add. If the author has made the hunt impossible to solve it would be properly described as a SCAM. And some wonder why it's not a recommended hunt.

    Hi, I just received an email(after I posted my comments) that my map submission for chapter one was incorrect. I thought as much as I submitted a random pick. The problem is that I submitted the picks in Feb. and the email gave a date of Mar. 13. Has anyone else received an email telling them their picks were incorrect?. I was under the impression that you would not be notified if your picks were incorrect. Are the rules changing as we go along or is it if you bitch you're rewarded with a response. The hunt is only viable and fun with a level, fair and honest playing field. Would'nt you agree.

    To be fair.... each Silver Eage is $10K and the Gold Eagle is $1M. Would you expect it final part to be as easy as the Chapter questions?

    Its less than 60 days after the book was launched. I think its a little early to be bashing the author because we are all scratching our heads on what to do after the Chapter questions.

    Save the kicking and screaming on the floor for a little longer

    Mike, I was posting a few comments that I thought others might consider. I asked a few questions and was awaiting any responses to those questions. Please reread what I wrote and if you have any answers to the questions please feel free to share them.

    Kit,

    You used phrases like "viable", "scam", "not fair", "putting away all concerned with this hunt", "not a recommended hunt", etc... To me it came off as alot more than "comments"

    I didn't answer your questions because I don't think there are definitive answers to your questions - or at least none that I have
