    Thanks! Custard is going to post the full scoop in the next few days. The funny thing is that my wife is the one who ultimately found the stone. She was taking pictures and spotted it while I was digging around. The best part is when we got home and I reviewed the pics... you can actually see the stone as it's hidden in one of the pics she got of me! The pic was taken before either one of us spotted it, so I thought that was pretty cool.

    Travis, THAT ROCKS! Way to go. I am sure you have some stories to tell too. Looking forward to your recap. I have not worked on these much but I imagine they are tons of fun. Coooooolness. so good to have a solve on Tweleve. 2013 might be a great year with Trav leading the charge!!!!

    Get cracking!! They are tons of fun. I like that each story seems to have a theme possibly related to the hiding place. And then more specific clues to get you there. No ridiculous ciphers or anything so far, so they're pretty accessible. Unfortunately I have a feeling that number III was the easiest of the bunch. I think Twelevers have made decent progress on I, but I don't know where to start on II.

    Congrats! I am glad that one of the Custard Quests was finally solved! And by someone on tweleve too! That is great! I will be anxious to hear how you solved it, as I have made attempts at all three, and failed.

    Here's the infamous pic... can you spot the stone that I didn't??


    There's the bugger! (Spoiler alert!)

    Wow! I am guessing that the clues must have sent you straight for that particular monument...? And yes, I can see that stone...It is under the large one, right where you set it out to dislpay it on that second photograph. It would have been difficult to find, but if you knew what you were looking for, almost obvious. It looks so smooth and round compared to the other rocks. Again, congrats!

    Thanks! Yep, the clues were pretty direct. I don't want to steal all of Custard's thunder since he's going to be posting the full solution, but when you see the full monument you'll understand the connection. In the meantime, here's a little spoiler:

    The first ever CustardQuest winner has been paid his $350 reward, and his adventure has been posted at CustardQuest. Read it. It's pretty interesting and entertaining. I hope it inspires some and re-inspires others to read CustardQuest I and II and work on solutions. I will reveal all of the clues in CustardQuest III in a few more days after everyone who wants to has read Travis's account, in which he reveals a couple clues he discovered that helped him win the reward money.

    Thanks for reading the CustardQuests.

    Sincerely,

    Custard

    Nice story! Nice photos! Sounds like a lot of fun. Now I can't wait to hear about the clues and how you figured out all the details.
