    All of the clues require very lateral thinking for me and it still does not help. Just too many possible sequences. We need key placement clues to validate our alpha and/or omega sequences. Only 4 clues until Ron breaks for the summer, so I do not see anyone solving this until next fall.

    The first part of any treasure hunt is always easiest to solve
    What is this clue telling us?

    Head east perhaps...or maybe west is best? Grab a new compass. N<-->S E<-->W

    I like that Gizmo. Chapter 4 had no reverse in it. Left to right for Q14 then head west and again go left to right for Q8.
    That may be the strategy for chapter 5 except instead of questions, we use pages.

    Yep. We're going to need some sort of reliable validator for alpha.

    Boy I sure hate being right, and especially being right about one or more of the clues could be a red herring. My top 3 suspect clues are the sun set in the east, the senior brother is 10 years older..., and one of the perfect square numbers remaining will help you on your way.

    Hmmmm..
    I'm using all three of these in my solution. I think Ron's statement is just saying that some of the clue has multiple meanings, some more subtle than others.

    I think it means that some of the clues have primary meanings that are misleading, but more subtler secondary meanings that are correct.

    So, they act as herrings, but do fit a valid interpretation when you've got it worked out.

    Stall tactics. Too hot in Houston in summer, so we will not get a winner until fall or later.
