    Question New York?

    Anyone in New York, preferably New York City, working on "The Whistle Pig"?

    Thanks! I will hold off for a little while longer (about a day) and see if anyone else is interested. So far, except for you, it has been the sounds of crickets chirping concerning New York.

    Whistle Pig is a very good book in any case, and I heartily recommend you get your hands on a copy so you can see what I am bonkers about when not involved in Dar, MenegeriE, or the Secret . . .

    "To my loyal troo-- ooops, wrong website!"

    (I am wayyy to much cold medication and far to little sleep at this point -- though I did manage to doze without coughing between 4 and 8 this morning.)

    "To everyone else besides Corgi who expressed any interest, I have come to a decision . . ."

    (sound of crickets)

    "To Corgi, for her great patience, vision, and foresight: I am extremely grateful that you expressed an interest in seeing what I have. I will pm you with something hopefully co-herent."

    Seriously, Corgi, thanks for volunteering to have a look and maybe a go at things!

    I was thinking New York because of using a particular cipher method, especially since one of the more obvious clues we were given said "Bare the cross. Leave the center. Find the fruit." I thought the 'fruit' might be the "Big Apple", and the center, the NYC Center, with the cross being what I still couldn't satisfactorily pin down.

    So, when in doubt (and I was), I resolved to be a real stickler for rules I was going by, and instead of "L. Center, NYC" for an anagram of information on page xi, got a different bunch of letters that could say, "Last Pretty Egg at PDC" -- which could be "Pennsylvania Dutch Colony" or "Potomic, D.C." or something else that would make sense in context. The main point being (besides the fact that without the rest of the puzzle it is nice but useless info) that this fragment possibility was a closer subject match than the Lincoln Center, for which there was a guided public tour...

    Sigh...

    Are you out of your mind? I watched an episode of CSI last week that offered so great advice... "Follow the evidence..." so profound. I see your post as making evidence out of nothing at all. I mean, that book is loaded with stuff and no one thing pointed me in the direction you stated or to make something out of what you did. No, I am not usually this big of a skeptic but I just read a RUSTY post and I have been working on The WP...so I am motivated to say so. I mean...if you just took the hours traveled by someone in a particular story...you' be way out of NYC. I fthe "fruit" was that obvious...woulnd the cross and center be as well?

    I am sorry meow, and with all do respect, I post this wanting to know...what "cipher method'?

    If it takes this to stimulate this thread, so be it. For that matter, why couldnt the key be HocKEY, TurKEY, KentucKY, or OrlowalsKI?
