1. ## New Clue: Letters

Only use letters from the story.

2. Thanks Lobster! Kind of confirms my general approach, although I am frustrated, because even though I matched the first 3 keys in sequence from what I thought was a simple yet elegant solution, my submission came back incorrect, so I must be doing something wrong.

Aargh!

I understand his clues, but I've made a mistake following the 'directions' for the second set of 10 keys.

The 'story' of chapter 1 is entitled 'D B Cooper'. The 'letters' from the story are DB C for DB Cooper. 24 3. X III.

4. Here's my answer to the letter clue and everybody please sing with me "
The home of the brave and the free,The shrine of each patriot's devotion......"

Hah!

I love his new clues--they're practice for what's coming in the map solution, and I can be VERY slow on the uptake.

Use letters from the STORY.
ST or Y.

ST = LAST TWO (as in last two letters from 1 - 20). Y = THIRD

LAST TWO THIRD.

A very clever way of presenting the three keys. The first.......is equal to the last.

Doc,

You are definately Not slow!

7. Is this "to be concluded" in a later post? Kind of in a jam in that I used other letters from the story and it led me to a very specific direction. So, yet another fork in the road for ole Rx.
