    Default dragonfly token found (well, not really)

    I just never realized it would be that big

    It was right where I expected it...next to a sign that said: FUNNY FARM, 1 mile, free short-stays with copy of ATT
    and it had a crypic message on the back: (cryptogram?)

    IDLBEV ZSV VGFBHKBR MSWJ CSBFM LBH XLVIKBR MSWJ IKCF SB IDF DWBI ZSV GDLBISC ISEFBV. KB IDF KCCSJILY XSJHV SZ G.I. NLJBWC:
    "L IJFLVWJF-DWBIKBR VWPEFJ KV NSJB FAFJM CKBWIF."

    IDLBEV ZSV CLEKBR CF JKPD(FJ)....CV

    seriously, if I can't find a token in my own "back-yard" park I grew up in, with rock-solid clues, I don't deserve to compete on a National Treasure Hunt any longer...you can have all my useless clues & theories

    quitting the hunt, finished, burned-out, and closing the book for good,

    Does this mean someone vandelized the park sign? Poor Park Ranger.... I wonder what they're going to do with all these psycho people digging up the place. :c)

    It's rather sad that the sign got trashed.... kind of reminds me of the blaine hunt and the rock wall. Someone dismantled an entire rock wall looking for the prize, when it was actually only 3 feet away in a fake rock under a tree. HAHAHA.

    Well, if you go back and find the token, we want to be the first to interview you and we'll gladly host all the gloating pictures that you want!!!

    Sorry, I should have cleared the "air".
    The sign was NOT vandalized, neither by me or anyone else.
    I found it rotted and lying in a discard pile, a reminder of the severity of Mountaintop weather elements.

    Hey, there's a clue for you all...the rotting of that wooden sign (and MOST of the park signs are wood) would lead a token-planter to consider the short shelf-life of wood exposed to harsh elements. So, you ask yourself, would something be hidden in or on a wooden sign for 3.5 years?
    (These are not pressure-treated timber, and also, they need constant re-painting)
    Good Luck to All
