    Not yet. I'm trying to work out his Xi solution.

    It now occurs to me that the bone-handled knife is supposed to look like an ivory-handled six shooter from the old West.

    His, huh? Do you know something we don't know? Couldnt BlackDragon be a lady? That looks like a lady's tattoo in his/her avatar? But the siloutte and user profile lends itself to a "him"...hmmm

    Clever anagram...you think that is what BlackDragon is...and anagram? To much DAR influence on these boards.

    I Like:
    Coarse Gulch Path
    Rough Canyon Trail

    and these "Dots" are generally trail markers...though on the Appalachian Trail they are White Blazes and Blue Rectangular Blazes....So I am gonna call the Blazes...

    ooooo Laffite..Good N Plenty...nice..very nice.

    Cheers, Domino

    One hikers description of trail. Note blue dot trail.





    There are several trails in the park. I've actually never been to
    the 1.5 mile loop on the east side of Highway 2. The trails tend to
    be one person width trails, rocky at spots, and have some change in
    elevation including some good climbs (and they tend not to be gentle
    grade climbs). There are small (less than a mile) yellow dot and red
    dot trails around the cave area (the dots are usually found on trees).
    The head of the longer trails start to the left of the parking area
    for the caves. This the blue dot trail. After a mile, you'll have
    your choice of heading towards the Lost Lake or the Mountain
    Trail/Deep Ford. The Lost Lake trail will loop you back to the cave
    area after 1.9 miles. By taking a left on to the Mountain Trail,
    you'll be following double blue dots for half a mile (keep an eye out
    for the sharp turn off the trail down into the "canyon"). Then you
    are presented with a choice of taking the 1.8 mile Cattail Pond Trail,
    which intersects with the Lost Lake trail, or continuing on the
    Mountain Trail. The Mountain Trail continues for a long, long time -
    the map says 4 3/4 miles. The trail ends at a low wet water crossing
    where you have the option of turning around and taking the trail back
    or crossing the creek and walking the road back (it's a little shorter
    and not much elevation change). I rarely encounter other people on
    the Mountain trail. It took me 2 1/2 hours to hike from the parking
    lot to the low water crossing and 1 1/2 hours to hike the road from
    the low water crossing back to the parking lot.
    Area:
    Forest, rocky, mountains, lakes, and green. I've been to the trail
    many times and the weather has ranged from cool and rainy to perfect to
    hot, hot, hot. I've seen the occasional deer and tons of lizards and
    frogs. The only time I have had trouble with bugs was the hot, hot,
    hot day. If you take the Mountain trail, be on the lookout for spider
    webs across the trail (there usually aren't too many, just enough to
    keep you on your toes).

    Well, Gagas...hello ladies...if this isnt one of you it sure sounds like Mimi is regionally located to investigate it.

    On another note, maybe jason could sell off all those "high valued" jewels and buy Belle Starr's place that Lafitte posted above.

    And yet on another note, maybe we should explore how this "solve" parallels the GA solve? We know that they both had a historical figure represented...Brown and Starr, what else? And, did we ever delve into the real reason why they did two different versions of the scroll? I have always thought that one revealed more than the other and therefor the need and opportunity presented itself for them to do another...dilute the factors with more factors.

    Lafitte, I figured you'd have a running list of these "suspects" posted on here, have you actually emailed someone as BlackDragon said? I think we should deciminate what he/she posted that is Xi related and what are simply clues to the indentity. As was said, there are odd capital letters on there (very GG'esque).

    Cheers and On On, Domino

    "Course Gultch Path" = "Rough Canyon Trail" really nails it and puts to rest any theories we had about the scrolly text.

    This feels like a festered mind splinter being pulled, finally.

    Thanks, BlackDragon.
