    Default In Honor of National Puzzle Day, January 29th

    “But, don't be puzzled by today. National Puzzle Day honors puzzles of all size, shape and form. There are easy puzzles, and there are puzzles for experts. They fit the needs of every person, and every skill level. Puzzles are a favorite pastime of millions of people, young and old.
    So, what's with this fascination over puzzles? There are numerous reasons for the popularity. For many, doing a puzzle is fun. Some people just like the challenge of completing them, and graduating to more complex and difficult puzzle solving levels. For others, it is a way to kill time and to eliminate boredom. Others still do puzzles to keep their mind sharp, or to learn new words. Whatever the cause for your interest, spend National Puzzle Day doing puzzles.”
    “The Origin of National Puzzle Day? Who created this day and when, a puzzle still remains. There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a "National" day, which requires an act of congress.”
    … I give you Zzzz- Xi Social.

    Scrollquest disappointed and upset so many of you last year, so here is posted the Xi Solution as this particular Treasure Hunter can see it.

    Because it is truly believed that what I am about to post is the solution to the Solve, if there was only but a coin still to be found at this location, it has been created in a way to both articulate the thought process behind it and to in itself hold another puzzle mixed in there all together; one that reveals just who I am among us.

    About the location, let me state that going there once is no easy task. Getting there multiple times is simply down-right painful in so many ways. So, if you understand what is being posted here and have the dream that the coin is still in its original location, give the road, the local motels (note Motels) at the nearest town to here and this State Park with its unique trail system a chance; travel and start hunting.

    As for my identity, it is very easy I suppose, once I look back on how simply it is disguised. The moderators may have a heads up, but I don’t really think so in this case. Discuss away and keep a list of the usual and unusual suspects. It would be interesting to see just who goes or doesn’t go in the line-up of these suspects. All I ask is that if you do figure it out- that is my identity- that you shoot an email or pm to the real ME and we’ll celebrate some day over champagne and wine when our paths should cross.

    No offense is intended by posting this message and solve. A lighthearted mischief can often be taken too seriously, so I hope you have some merriment with this “puzzle.”

    Happy Puzzle Day – Enjoy!
