    Default Rusful token in Milwaukee?

    The results of this solution pro-duced, no token for me.It is the wrong place, or it is missing. I’ll explain pro-duced later! Some of these ideas might help you in your hunt. I wish you , “The best of Luck”.
    Page 56 is the instruction page to turn the clue page upside down.The letters and crosses mean nothing!! With one hand he tipped the pouch (page) into his other hand. With the page now upside down. Now look at the backward Z symbol, and you will see the bow, just the bow of a rusty ship ( if you magnify it, you will detect orange pixels ,rust )and the oily sea it sits in(the globs at the bow). That is Rusful approaching Copernicus grotto. At the very mouth of the grotto he stood.. This tells us where to find Rusfuls tree.
    On the clue sheets you have, complete the triangle as MS has given you lines to do this. From “g” to “p” to unknown dark circle. Actually the dark circle is Copernicus, the crater north of Tycho(the big one on the bottom of the moon which is south). Try and be exact drawing the triangle. Lay a transparency over the clue page. Now copy the triangle to the transparency including a mark in the center of the bow of the ship symbol. Label the angels p,g,.
    Now, the trick was to find a page in the book with “g” on the right margin and “p” on the left. Page 56 is that page. You will notice the third line down ends in a hyphen. It is the word pro-duced ! Move the Pro- to the left margine on duced and it matches the “p”on the transparency triangle. Matching “g’s” and “p’s”now, the mark you made on the backward Z sits on the line of text that explains, rusty ship plowing through an oily sea.(See, I told you).The angle at Copernicus rest on the line of text that says, At the very mouth of the grotto he stood.(Copernicus). The last line on 56 says ,they caught him, and rose with him into the sky bearing Rusful, the Blight Spreader, they swarmed into the night. That line matches page 68 as a continuous, The Darklings swarmed up from the grotto.
    Page 68 tells us what city. Checking where Copernicus is in the states, Milwaukee is the best choice because of the big M to start with. See Insert. All pages with a moon are the clues to Rusful. P 21 , black boiling clouds filled the sky. This sends you to P68. P31 shows us what the Rusful tree looks like and also the surrounding area. The text is also important as the trees really do talk there. Heavy limbs rubbing together make a terrible noise in the wind. I know, I was there on a windy day. P56 is the instructions for the clue and P 68 tells of the city.
    P31 explained that Rusfuls tree stands at the edge of the grotto just inside the forest at the first light pole of the lower trail of Copernicus Pk, Milwaukee.It is across from the baseball backstop. I will try and attach a photo. Two twisted trees with an opening in the back just enough to get you hand into. The rocks are there,the Linden stump complete with the long blades of grass we have been looking at. It is a low area, and there is a drain pipe under the black top trail,(hardened like cold ,black glass).
    I did not use a metal detector around the area. If someone would like to try that, be my guest. It has been a great hunt not to mention the costs.
    Again I wish you all well and I hope if I am wrong, some of this is exact and that it helped you. At a book signing MS stated. If you guys are going to continue to use the internet I will turn up the heat. Well, the kitchen is too hot now. For me, it is denouement.
    I tried to post this earlier, but it did not show up! Forgive me if this is redundant. I have pictures of the trees, but they are too large for the server.

    Default WAIT BEFORE YOU STOP!

    You should look in the drain pipe - or somewhere near the ground. Pook wasnt found in a tree! I think he was supposed to be found NEAR a tree! Please go back and look! I dont want you to lose your treasure!
    That's me as a SIM!

    Jholi,
    Great stuff. I spent last night going over it and trying to put it all together.
    The brain stalled at 10 p.m. I did find that the page you listed as 56 was 58. I didn't come up with anything else except that there are tons of
    Copernicus related places including D.C. with statues etc. named after him and even a park in TX but it sure looked barren as far as trees go and flat land--no grotto there. I'll get back to it today unless you looked in that drain pipe or by it and found the token. jj

    The drain pipe was checked. I really did not expect to find anything there as the water would have washed it away! Poor hiding place. The knot hole and around the tree was the major interest of the hunt.

    Jholi,
    Don't give up. Try again later. Maybe something will have shaken out by then. Sure looks like a good solution. It is a very small token. jj
