    Thanks to moscow for the great puzzle and Twollars. I'm fairly new and still not sure exactly what they are, but much appreciated.

    Thanks for the congrats from all that have worked on this.

    For those that are still playing around with triangles while waiting for the official solution, here is a hint (this might give away to much though so be warned before looking):



    And to introduce myself, my name is James and I'm from TN. You should see alot more of me on here in the future.

    Got it!

    Once I finally got my table set up the way I wanted it, the answer was there. Go figure.

    Here is a link about info on the map moscow speaks of:

    http://www.loc.gov/today/pr/2001/01-093.html

    Interesting thing is, according to article, that Martin Waldseemüller was using data collected by Amerigo Vespucci and and used the name America mistakenly thinking he had discovered the new world instead of Christopher Columbus. Makes you wonder...if he had gotten it right, would we be called the United States of Columbia?

    I don't think the puzzle was too hard, but it depends on the timeframe you had in mind for the solution. Obviously, the online clues can be used to speed up the progress as needed. I think clue #2 was pivotal, and could have been used later than it was. I would have preferred to have this "ah ha!" moment myself without such a strong hint.

    Interestingly, I did not need graph paper for the transposition. I found that working with the text in an editor was sufficient:



    Also, I attempted a "known plaintext" attack on this cipher. I had a good suspition that the phrase Tweleve Hunts was part of the solution. I tried circling these letters and looking for the pattern. I may have been successful with this attack given more time.

    I loved this hunt. My time was limited so I was only able to give it a small amount of attention. Wish it lasted longer and look forward to more!
