# Thread: Pages 44-45 To the Highest Point

1. ## Pages 44-45 To the Highest Point

The red and blue letters in the border can be anagrammed to spell "MOUNTAIN" - the car in the picture is a Cadillac (haven't tried to pin the year down yet). The highest point on Mount Desert Island is Cadillac Mountain.

It will be interesting to see if there are connections like this in the other pictures and border anagrams.

2. On common dice, the 6 is never beside the 1. They are at opposite ends.

The dice hanging from the mirror on the cadillac shows a 6 next to a 1, which could be considered an anomaly and a hint to look at these dice more-- concerning the numbers that they make by adding, subtracting or other ways.

3. ## RE: Dice

Sixer is totally correct. The values on the opposite sides of the dice always add up to "7".

If you position the dice such that the side with six dots is facing you, and the side with five dots is facing up (12 o'clock), then the side with four dots will be in the 3 o'clock position, the side with two dots will be in the 6 o'clock position and the side with three dots will be in the 9 o'clock position. The remaining side (which has only one dot) will be facing directly away from you.

maybe the dice have 2 meanings
the caddy looked like a 61, after looking
at a few pics maybe a 62 caddy, see what
you think

5. Good one CW. We're not very good with Caddys. 1960 and 61 look pretty similar but this was a great thought.

Hi Guys, just started reading whats here and looking at the book today so forgive me if this has been talked about already. I was trying to measure out the distances on the waymarking signs on pg. 44, I have only done the short distances so far but it seems like something is off.....or I'm doing something completely wrong lol
The car is on a paved road, Bar Harbor is 3 miles from it. The only paved roads on the map 3 miles from Bar Harbor are Rt. 3, Eagle Lake Rd. and Otter Creek Dr. Sieur De Monts Spring (4 miles away) could match up with Rt. 3 but thats it. Jordan Pond (4 miles away) would not match Rt. 3 though....but Otter Creek at 6 miles does. Basicly I can't get all the locations to match up with a spot. Am I way off on my measurements? Has anyone else tried this? Maybe it's not important?

I think it is important - have to look back at my notes later - I had thought that
the sign post (while not matching up as such) were 'Wind Distances' (as the crow flies)
(we are looking for 'the key to the wind')

The license plate of the cadillac, 131491, is a simple number substitution for ACADIA.

Wind distance would make sense.....how would you go about measuring wind distance though?

10. If wind distance is as the crow flies (as Tron mentioned) it would be a straight line from one place to another, rather than the distance by road (which could be curvy or not direct).
