    Default 1st place - chapter 2

    grandfathers office.

    From the description, there is a black star on a calendar of 31 days. The black star indicates a capital. So we look for a state capital on 31, which is Indianapolis, IN. Which is located on US31.

    I like where this is going. Does it set up a triangulation or mutli location situation where you draw lines to see where they intersect? The thing is, trying to find a key involves a percise location and clues to get to that spot on foot. This is where the book has eluded me in revealing something tangible, not contrived from the words in any section based on my own twisted mind.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Hunting.

    Default Clues

    "Bare the cross"

    Chapters 2 thru 5 reveal the 4 cities that create what I call the major cross. This identifies a state if I am correct. Chapters 7 thru 10 reveal the 4 cities within that state to refine the position.

    Chapter 1 reveals more detail about the trail to the location
    Chapter 11 reveals a clue that helps you identify the center.

    This is all my opinion at this point.

    I have twice been to where my solve leads, but either I am completely wrong, or I am right but just missing the final piece, or right and the pig is no longer there.

    If you like where this is going, you should see my solve for Fandango and the Fenn Treasure

    Default 4th Place - Chapter 5

    Chapter 5 - WinterLand

    Song "It must have been the Roses", the Rose City - Portland Oregon

    That concludes the major X, which marks the state if my solution is correct.

    For those of you viewing this thread, there is a website called scribblemaps that you can use to draw lines and such on maps. That is what I used to draw the X to determine the state it is in. I will wait a few days before I start posting what I have for the solutions to chapters 7,8,9,10.
