    No, Lobsters never give up!

    My wife and I are, however, at the point where we don't think we can get a whole lot further with chapter 1 without more information to narrow the scope down further.

    We have discovered a whole pile of layers in this chapter, and have no idea which of them are intended as clues, validation hints, code markers, cipher markers, red-herrings, or figments of our imagination. Some of our discoveries are pretty incredible, and have you saying "that's GOT to be a clue", except, well... they don't fit in with anything else.

    It's funny, but in a way, the more we have read and researched, the more we have discovered, and the more we have discovered, the more intractable a solution becomes.

    I'm starting to get the uncomfortable feeling that the solution may be something completely unrelated to any of those discoveries and something boring like "take every 3rd letter from such-and-such-a-place for the first X keys, then every 4th word from somewhere else for the next Y keys, etc". I hope not.

    I hope someone out there solves this soon, because that will mean I no longer need to

    Good Luck Everyone,
    After 2 years of trying, my solution also seemed to click in place. Love to see those sevens line up. Of course I have felt this way before and don't have a very good track record.

    Gizmo, which clue are you referring to? The one I looked at on FB was fairly straightforward

    At any rate this is all very exciting and I think someone will win soon.

    Eagle as key #3 messed up my 7s theory a while ago.

    Curious to see if anyone is thinking the same thing. What is your 2nd last key?

    Ours is 10.

    That seems like a good spot for it, but my current solution has it over one space.

    Fits all the clues, eh? I like how "twelve o clock high was a little bit late" fits perfectly, in a rather neat sort of way.

    I take it that the new clues have made the V8 bitter.
