    hi well after trying everything i could to figure out how amy came up with the solve from a goup of letters with few vowels, my last resort was
    make all the words i could out of the letters, of course i got golden gate
    so i thought google that, i did but three pgs later, none of the info on those
    pgs led me to the rest of the solve ie;prayer book cross,and that is with knowing the answer. so thinking she just didnt happen up on the
    solve. just hate knowing an answer and not knowning how to get it.

    Default solution

    CW,

    Could it be merely "familiarity of a 'local' with a nearby tourist attraction?"
    that gave Amy the ability to see PRAYER BOOK CROSS in all of those consonants?

    animal painter not to sure about that
    a; she doesnt live that close i think 50 miles or more
    B;if she grew up there and spent a lot of time in the park
    C; someone was working with her and knew park well
    when i googled golden gate park i never ran across prayer
    book cross as a listing for an attraction there in a listing of
    25 sites per pg.

    I read a post at ATT that stated Rusful's finder used colored pencils to color the shaded areas of certain drawings/photos in the book to produce her solution. I swear! I am not making this up... I read the post.... I don't know how truthful the post was....

    it is so nice to have you on this forum.

    Have you tried to color in with colored pencils the pictures in this book? Try it pick a page and see what you get. It is called shadowing. There are other pictures on these pages beyond what you see. A whole new insight to Treasures Trove. I did the cover. I suggest you make a copy of the page before you start. You will see a lot of new faces when you start to color in use a magnifying glass as you color.
    I did this because Amy said in her interview her and her sister used colored pencils as they did not have sophisticated computer equipment. I believe that is why they have not shown a 5x5 or that type of answer I believe she got the answer from the shadows she colored. You not only get words and pictures you get numbers too.
    try it

    No wonder I couldn't solve it!!!! Fart*blossom

    The real reason I couldn't solve any..... I don't have any sophicitcated computer equipment to solve the 5X5's....! I can't trust myself to color within the lines, so I was doomed from the start!

    Default The location...

    Hi guys...long time no see! Got grounded off the 'puter for a while. Anyway, I just wanted to share that remember way back when the parentals got someone to go search a location for us? Well, it was another guy from here on this board. Anyway, the location was Golden Gate Park. And we got it from anagramming the first block clue's letters, then each additional clue's letters to get more info. They anagrammed perfectly with no left over letters, but it said things like (not word for word cuz I don't have it on this computer and I don't remember) "in park near where jewels were loose late January" and other things. If you go back and search my posts you can see when I was frantically trying to find out where the jewels had been on display in late January....

    The poor guy and his family searched for two days in the rain but didn't find the token. Oh well. He tried very hard, which is all anyone could ask for.

    Mondo congrats to those who found it!!!!
