    Except we have been misled by the tree cutter clue?

    You mean "missiled"?

    But you should be one of them being misled. Which means you should be getting "misled".

    Except, being misled is not a good thing. So one interpretation is "it's bad to get misled", and an equally valid semantic interpretation is "it's good to get misled". Seems to be impossible to determine intent.

    One thing I've noticed is, it feels like we must do everything twice in this chapter. Once you have been misled, you look behind you and realize all the ways we have been misled in the chapter clues. Having understood the meaning, you are no longer lost.
    Storytelling is ultimately a creative act of pattern recognition. Through characters, plot and setting, a writer creates places where previously invisible truths become visible. Or the storyteller posits a series of dots that the reader can connect. - Douglas Coupland

    Anyone still working on this?

    Havent submitted in ages, so took a fresh look. Found a new take on one of the clues that led to a new submission. Shrug.

    I am still not convinced that Ron will be able to continue the hunt, although he claims that it will continue on his FB page. If a new clue is released in September, then it will give me a chance to take a fresh look over the chapter and clues. Until then, I am enjoying a break from The Atocha.

    I review the clues about once a week looking for new insights and meaning. It is amazing how many paths you can follow, not know if you are going to find something or fall off into an abyss. I submit at least once per week just to keep the brain cells from atrophying.

    I keep coming back around to it, but I feel like there's so little hope of actually figuring out a chapter solution. I wish we had testimony from winners that explicitly stated "the answer is one that, when I got it, I knew it." Do we have that? Because I really would like to be excited about this hunt.

    You would be surprised (well maybe not really) how many times I "Just knew I had it", until I got the rejection notice....
