    Cool Hello??? Anyone out there???

    Wow! It looks like we've all let this hunt fall by the wayside, or we're too stuck to budge, or ????? What's up ??? Team Meaner has decided to take a break because we were going crazy! Going to start over because it's driving us nuts! How about the rest of you? Why the long silence??????

    "we're too stuck to budge" sounds about right - I'm going to do the same and start over - re-reading the book, reviewing the additional clues (web-sites and e-mail clues) and reviewing the questions + answers - I think I need to do this to maybe get more of an overview of the whole thing rather than dwell on parts which all seem to lead to dead-ends.

    Having said that, all 240 answers found but I still haven't figured out a solve for the Ch12 anagram list yet - Caffine said there is definitely a solve for this but I can't fathom it. Anyone care to drop a hint or two on this? Maybe let us know if it is worth working on i.e. if the information gleaned looks of value or perhaps just looks like a red-herring?

    It was nice to see something new on this board.

    I've been plowing through Chapter 8 trying to figure out some way to solve it. I've noted some irregularities,but nothing more. Why that chapter? I'd like to visit NYC! I'd also like to go back to Edinburgh,but...no clue how one solves the anagrams.

    I think that someone needs to solve one of the chapters soon...if not,this hunt will never take off...

    WOw! Never have we seen activity drop at such a level on a hunt before!!! From frantic to NOTHING!!!! Interesting! Does anyone know if anyone ever successfully completed a map yet??? What about the periodic clues that were supposed to show up on the website? Anyone ever see any of them? This is very strange!

    Has anyone notice anything strange about one of the pictures in the Archives, or indeed the Archives themselves.

    Hi Shrek,

    Not sure what you are hinting at here. The archives comprise of a number of PDF files organised into Months except for 2 files which are JPGs - significant? Have spotted the golden eagle plaques on the engines of Linda Finch's Electra plane in one of the JPGs but nothing else has so far popped out as being strange - can you explain further?

    Hi Scotty,

    The actual picture is in the April Archive 'The season of the treasure hunt is on', you may need to zoom and rotate.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    OK...... nope, still not seeing anything strange. I've compared the archive version with the original and all "seems" in order. I guess I'm just not seeing what you're seeing.

    Ahhhh - wait a minute. I think I've seen it! Trouble is,these also appear in the original so can't be anything Ron/the Great Hunt has done to give a clue........ unless Ron has got the Paper on board............. yes, agree with you - certainly a little strange!

    Or maybe Ron saw it on there and found a use for it.
