    Unhappy Surrendering

    Team Meaner has voted to end our quest for the eagles. When we began this hunt, lo 2 some years ago, it looked like such a great time. We really enjoyed the trivia question quest and had looked eagerly forward to the next step, the arrangement of the keys on the map. The instructions in the book told us that"The clues to getting the correct sequence are hidden in the book, at the The World's Greatest Treasure Hunt : Quest for the Golden Eagle, and the sponsor's website." (page xix-book). We are all disappointed that the hunt has spiraled into this abyss of what comes down to everyone guessing, or coming up with theories that are so complex that you need to be Einstein to understand them. We are just plain exhausted with the horde of additional clues that mean next to nothing. The younger Simikkles hate this hunt & have refused to do it, the veterans are frustrated that we can get no further, and are making excuses NOT to show up to work on it. The fun has gone. And now so are we. To save the team, we are off to find another adventure that hopefully, will pan out in a more timely manner. Good luck to all!!! Thanks to all for their "nudges" & support, it's greatly appreciated. Can't wait to see who finally can figure this baby out. Will pop in once in awhile to see how things are going. You're a great bunch of people!

    Good luck to TMS! I think a lot of folks are thinking the same thoughts as you. I have ordered the book on the Hunt for the Golden Key which just came out and is posted in the new hunts section. Its funny that when you stop banging your head on the wall, the pain stops too!

    I can understand your frustration as well. In one of his interviews, he also says when you find the right sequence, you'll know it. That's what happened to me twice so far in this hunt. Once for Chapter 1 and once for Chapter 2, yet both times, they were incorrect. I think I know where the latest clue for Chapter 1 is supposed to lead you to, but I would have never gotten there without the clues, and when I submitted my sequence, I didn't know that I was correct, it was just another guess.

    I am in the sme boat, Gizmo. I am still going to keep plugging away because I love the thrill of the hunt.

    Of course, someone's recent guess was correct! Don't think it was me... Ron didn't call me.
    The true prize is the hunt itself.

    I have never understood why someone who wins powerball for say 300 million would give up 140million over 20 years to get 160 million now. Never understood that. Never will.

    Hate to see you go meaner but glad there is one less competitor out there!

    I'm not going to give up.we are ultimately talking about one million dollars!

    Btw you can take 160 million now and if invested wisely you can have we over 300 million after 20 years.thats why it's smarter to take the cash now
