What, exactly, is the fourth question looking for as an answer? Originally, when this hunt came out, we were supposed to be looking for a buried object, but the author changed that so that people from anywhere in the world could have an equal chance at winning. So now, the answers can be input into a computer, and the winner does not have to travel to the location to retreive the object.
For the third question, when you input an incorrect answer, you were given the prompt, that read something like, "that is not the location you are looking for". But this time, when you put in an answer, you do not get a reply that it is a location we are looking for. So what is it that we are looking for as an answer to question four?
Also, perhaps the author will tell us, is the answer one word, two words, or even more words?
So am giving fandango a break and decided to come back to stare at ‘Map of the Dead’ in puzzlement. I thought I would post some thoughts to hopefully get others thinking and encourage discussion. ...when Bailey says there is a ‘church’ connection is he being literal...I.e it’s at a church somewhere? ...or is it something else like a ‘church’ street. I never did the Church parade so wonder if this somehow has me at a disadvantage for the last question?
The last clue he gave of April 5th and Oct 10th obviously hints towards the same reference in chapter 21. Incidentally these are real entries in Carter’s journals. You can see them online....I spent a few days reading through the journals as they were interesting in their own right though they did not elucidate any answers for me. So no matter what I guess I can thank Murray for the history lesson! If I remember correctly the numbers were actually referring to monetary amounts.
So back to my main point...that the original number code is from the original journals. I think this is very important. It means Murray had to integrate them into his book vs. having the word/location first and then coding it. E.g it can not refer to a GPS location (as he has already said) or something simple like a Cesar shift of the letters.
