    Not sure how much everyone has invested in this hunt, but I will confess. I have been at this for exactly one year. Last year I purchased 14 books to give as gifts for friends and family. Two of those books I kept for myself, one to mark on and place notes and another to keep pristine in hopes of having Ron Shore sign it after winning one of the silver eagles(wishful, positive thinking on my part). Hundreds of hours attempting to solve chapters one and two. Time spent trying to solve chapter three-very minimal at this point. I feel as if there is no use in that there are either multiple solutions or each one is so obscure that only additional clues will finally solve it.
    I'm not sure how much folks like Lobster and Shrek and many others have invested, but it's obvious from the early posts on this website from two years ago that many have left this hunt. Is is because of the difficulty, that it may not be legit like Alchemist Dar or a combination of both?
    Roger said that Ron is a very genuine person committed to the hunt and his charity and I take him for his word. But, burn me once, shame on you, burn me twice, shame on me and I'm feeling a bit warm right now.

    It's almost my anniversary too, having picked up The Great Global Treasure Hunt in Asda (Walmart), just before Christmas last year. It was perhaps not the best introduction to treasure hunting, but despite the lack of solutions it was great fun and even educational.

    I now find myself hooked by The World's Greatest Treasure Hunt, and what a prize! I don't know if there has ever been such a reward, but the point I was trying to make earlier, was anything on this scale is not going to be easy to win. Vince... you doubtless have far more experience than me, but I would rather make my own mind up about people's sincerity. jedloah claims to have discovered something hidden within the chapters, and until proof to the contrary, I accept his/her comments in good faith.

    Anyway, back to business. It would be great to have the third eagle flying across the Atlantic!

    This Christmas will be my two year anniversay for this hunt. My signature sums up my feeling about any hunt.

    When I started this one, all I was looking for was some challenging puzzles, a few "ah ha" moments and good company. Winning a prize, being heralded as a winner... that's never my goal.

    To me, it is not the prize or the end that counts; it is how great the journey was.

    It's Ron's hunt and Ron's rules. His thinking and logic are his own. I find the puzzles challenging and I've learned a lot about history while I sauntered through this hunt. I think I'll hit my 240 solve count by the spring, but I am in no hurry. I like to take some time and enjoy the hunt; not blast through it looking for cash.
    The true prize is the hunt itself.

    Two and a half years in.

    A few things about the hunt bother me. Am content I understand a good portion of C2's internal solution, and while I still don't in any way like it (for a number of reasons), I've moved on.

    On the other hand, some things about this hunt amaze me. There are cool things in this book. Keep looking. Use your right brain. Even if you end up finding things that are totally unintended or not part of the hunt (pretty much everything I found in C1 and C2- - lol), you'll be learning some fascinating things.

    In the end this is a very complicated book. Almost certainly there are logical or consistency errors that weren't intended just because of the complexity of it all. Maybe even lots of them.

    Every day I'm peeling away more layers. Trying to tease apart some logical paradoxes. Initial feeling is that we will be a lot happier with C3's solution. That's all I want for Christmas: interesting solutions.

    Cipher is right: the prizes don't matter.

    Having fun, and that's what counts.

    Like every typo in the FAQ, do you remember when we thought these were clues, we spent months dissecting them, only to be told a year down the line that they were typos. By the way, has anybody got a new book with out these FAQ typos yet!

    Yes, particularly since we were clearly told "there are clues on the website". How foolish of us to look on the website for clues.

    p.s. chunks of the FAQ still make no sense 3 years after book launch. It talks about Ron hiring military teams to fly around in helicopters, getting out 250 miles from a destination, walking around in the dark with blindfolds on, and stomping around with GPS units, all to hide pieces of paper.... which we are not, by the rules, even allowed to look for. Illogical stuff in the official FAQ like this really doesn't help credibility.

    Well it's almost 8pm west coast time and no clue this Friday. Maybe Ron put an end to it.

    Great article thought I would share... I love to see people with fortune & fame helping out there... Good job Jon! Natali

    She didn't say this wasn't a clue for CH 3.

    Doesn't she usually add "It is NOT meant as a chapter clue or anything... It's just something I found that was worthy of sharing... Natalie"?

    Doesn't she usually say "It is NOT meant as a chapter clue or anything"? And she doesn't for this one.
