# Thread: CHAPTER 4 - discussion and clues

1. Personally, I have no problems with Ron or his decisions...

Just getting a little bored over here, that's all.

2. Someone will eventually get it.

3. As I sit here looking out at yet another Canadian snowstorm, I cannot help but think how nice it would be in Arizona instead. Has anyone else noticed the strange wording of the paragraph on page 75 which mentions "a ribbon, yellow". That paragraph has all 26 letters of the alphabet except X (which of course, marks the spot). Hope someone wins this soon. I have already started working on the next chapter.

4. Yes, I have noticed that also. No navajo.

Can't say I have too much confidence in a paragraph that is tucked into RED quartz. But then again, assistance in identifying and avoiding herrings has never been given, so... who knows.

Doc, I believe this is the right idea.

We have clear indication that we have enough clues and it is easy. I'll toss out a few ideas. I've always held certain clues higher on the list. Some of those ideas have held through every clue, some clues are the same message.
1) Kryptos clue. Two parts. Flicker. You figure out the second part.
2) Judge a man by his questions. The man's questions..."IN quotations"
3) two numbers went on a hunt of their own. rhombicuboctahedron puzzle. There is 18, 2 missing and 6 more to use them all. The answer is divided into equal parts.
4) substitution cipher...you will have 2B twice as lucky to guess this one. it took the peralta family two times.... The number two. Be.
5) navajo code

6) and the biggest mystery...i'm almost on it now... to start, skip over then go back.
7) wouldn't be the least surprised to see the beginning = end theme linking to the other chapters. Those two numbers missing on the hunt may link up to other chapters

Awesome!!! Just submitted a promising answer!
If I'm right this is nowhere closed to "easier than you think."

Here is for those who interesting how I came up with my promising solution:
I gave up (no submission) for about a month until 2 nights ago I decided to click on the Eagle's eye. I made a mistake! I couldn't sleep that night thinking how closed I was and trying to solve it. I couldn't make it. The night was wasted.
I worked on it all day yesterday and last night, couldn't make a head or tail out of it. With 2 nights not sleeping well, I became a dreamer, just like Mick's father
This morning suddenly everything came out clear as crystal. Here I'm repeating what has been said:
- Review all the FB clues of this chapter.
- Look for 2 friends, a partner, or a couple.
- Make sure not to double up on it.
Those are what has been said, this is from my experiences:
I noticed long ago there are 3 words that repeat 4 (chapter 4?) times in a sentence, a paragraph. Those words are: Gold (pg. 67), Same (pg. 67), & As (pg. 6. Those words arrange as "Same as gold."
Also, at the end of the chapter it also said "Don't go out there looking for gold.", "They are bait."
So, you might want to look for something "same as gold" and more importantly "this" could keep the Thunder God away.
Happy hunting y'all!

I just enetred my final guess. I think its a pretty damn good guess. If its incorrect, then I am completely tapped out of ideas. Please Ron, call me next week! Lol
