    The author released two clues that say: 1) What doesn't belong 2) Look for the Jeep and a recent one that says Look before the Jeep. In the book, the chapter about DB Cooper, the protagonist drives a vehicle referenced only as a Cherokee, which of course was made by Jeep. There are four separate mentions of the word Cherokee throughout the chapter.

    However I would have to reread the chapter to see if there are hidden words that "bridge" from one word to the next, either Jeep or Cherokee. Or the reference could be to one of the 20 questions at the back of each chapter, which are supposed to be placed in order 1-20 to win the instructions on how to find a silver eagle.

    Good luck

    So do the words directly before these Cherokee occurances have meaning when put together? How about the first letter of that word? Last? (I am a Jeep owner so this intrigues me slightly).

    Wow! What can I say? Wow!

    I love reading the comments and speculations. I hope that the folks who put all the effort
    into this game reap a financial reward, cause you deserve it. Me? I'm just hoping the inside of my head explodes into a 1-20 can't miss sequence.

    Consider the following:

    1. The first two keys for chapter 1 Treasure Map are 1, 20. Labelled as GOLD EAGLE EYE and found by clicking an 'eye'.

    2. Some of you have already solved the first six numbers to winning the first silver eagle. Found in Invisible Ink.

    3. 12:00 high was just a little bit late.

    4. The ghost Cooper past holds your omega key.

    5. Look before the Jeep.

    6. At least 20 people have the first half correct.

    Guys, there's more to each of these clues than meets the eye as it were. It's these sorts of puzzles that we encounter on our way to the silver eagle. The problems are that there are more than one interpretation and we have no blank to fill in at the web site to tell us if we're right or wrong.

    I completely overlooked the first clue and only considered its literal information. 20 people do NOT have the first half correct and people didn't solve the first six numbers. These are all CLUES and they have a secondary meaning to help nudge us towards the silver eagle.

    Hallelujah! Did I finally explain the concept of the three keys in a way that folks could understand?
