    Default for those who are certain the hunt is over.

    share your ideas/solutions NOOOOOW!! lol

    seriously, a lot of people have been stating its "obvious" the hunt is over.. or "we need to face reality".. which is expected.. if youre sure the hunt is over, theres no reason to hold back information.. If youre one of those people, then lay it all down in this thread, so we can all work together and get this thing figured out.

    on a side not, if anyone is still actively searching for a solution and has something to offer, pm me, if i think it holds water, I can give what i believe is the first step in solving the hcb.. it may or may not be right, but we can work on it.. I want people who are still interested in finding an answer to these puzzles, not someone who is just upset about the bankruptcy proceedings and has given up...

    everyone else who has given up, why not post youre ideas here.... theres no reason not too.

    Why would you want or ask for personal pm's regarding HCB info in the same post that you are asking everyone else to share all?

    I smell a rat!

    Why don't you start by sharing how you think the HCB will be solved?
    Offer something to get something.
    Or are you affraid you might post something forbidden?

    If I had something to offer I would post first but I never found anything worth posting.

    No question is a stupid question if you don't
    know the answer. Stupid is not asking.

    i had a feeling someone would read that wrong.. i was asking those who are sure the hunt is over and have already given up to post publicly.. personally, i think those who have given up have nothing to offer anyway, otherwise they wouldnt have quit. If i sincerely believed that the hunt was over, i would post... there would be no reason not to post i they had something.

    i only asked those who are still working on it to pm me.

    Ive already shared with a few people who had nothing to offer in return.. I gave my info to another who shared with me first, but we were off base with each other as far as our ideas.. and another person who had some of the same exact ideas as me who i dont believe is working on the hunt anymore either.. i want people who are still willing to give time to this hunt, thats all....

    This is excellent scepticism. Kudos to you, lindenmi.

    I see nothing amiss with kappy's requests. They are nicely conditionally worded. No rat odor, no need for any more skepticism than usual at this point, imho.
    If you recognize my avatar or know about shard V or "RUN...STEAL", please pm or e-mail me re possible partnering.

    Kappy,
    My appologies. I think it was more the way it was worded than the intent.
    I know all of us are very frustrated with this hunt.
    I myself don't want to spend much time on something dead in it's tracks.
    There is a nagging need to discover the solutions to the book no matter what the prize but the lingering hope that the hunt might not be dead is stopping those who are left from sharing all they know.

    I would be willing to put some time into the puzzles if I had some solid leads.
    I don't want to follow dead ends and hunches and clasp at straws.
    My time is better spent elsewhere.

    If you have something solid and need some help then yes, pm's seem like the best option right now.

    Checking in until the end.

    Default Keep it Simple

    Although a lot of people believe this is over, I really do not think it is. For me either way I plan to continue, not for the prize but for the thrill of the Hunt. I also wanted to share a simple secret...read this book to a child and ask them what they think about where the treasures would be hidden. Beyond all the complex threads in this forum site, sometimes the most simple things have the answer. The imagination of my childen provided me with answers that all the time were right in front of me, no english, no mathmatics

    Default The Hunt is Still On

    What I know and have always known:
    1. the Hunt is Still on and has never been off. Thousands of things show this
    2. all the legal wrangling mumbo-jumbo was part of it from the beginning
    3. just read what michael said in his most recent interview...it's pretty obvious that he's saying it is still a live hunt
    4. there are hundreds, if not thousands, of clues outside the book
    5. there are a number of organizing principles, programs, books and websites
    6. I am, apparently not bright enough to figure it out.
    7. I'm not sure if I am missing the Forest for the Trees or the Trees for the Forest, but Ohm's Law makes a crazy kind of sense.

    I probably just need to start fresh, but I have just grown tired. Oh well, one more year. I haven't been actively working on this since April/May 2007. I have other things to do...running, hang-gliding, etc. I brain-dumped to a couple of people. Hopefully that has kept them in the hunt. I may actually pick up my shredded books again since it is cold again in AZ.

    Its amazing that after coming back to this hunt after over a year, it is basically in the same state it was in...no rings claimed or even close.....maybe there is a chance after all.

    personally I have pulled out my Whistle Pig and am re-reading that - though with the holidays upon me - not much time even for that -
    I want to hunt the solution just for the sake of knowing! but probably wait a few months for fresh perspective - second - or third wind on this one
    I still love the book - the story and the illustrations
    I don't HAVE any clues or any ideas that are worth pursuing or I would definitely share at this point
    em - luanne

    imagination is the only weapon we have in the war against reality!

    success is simply getting up one more time than you fall
