I do apologize for the mistake of times. You have no idea how awful I feel, but all I can do is move on, apologize to my fellow Headquarter Agents and to you all.
Because I posted the solution, we have to just end it now and announce the winners up to this point. Which is done.
This first mission of T4T reminds me of the first MW Treasure Hunt Launch. At the Launch date of that hunt, the MW Website Crashed because of an overwhelming amount of traffic on the Forrest Fenn hunt. Hardly anyone could get on site to download 'Scroll 1'. I felt awful then too. The MW Launch date coincided with breaking news being reported on major media channels, which linked to MW, and brought it down.
However, from that time, all the other hunts went on smoothly....
So I expect the same will be for T4T as well....
I'm great at failing forward....lol and must just Treasure the Adventure...
Hope you all continue the journey too! It's going be awesome...
I about smacked myself when I read the solution. I had all the clues correct but couldn’t for the life of me figure out how they went together. After I read how they went together I felt quite foolish for not figuring it out lol. It was loads of fun. I’m going to enjoy these very much.
Thanks all! You all are awesome Agents and we are glad you are part of the T4T Team of Secret Agents. We have lots of missions and fun times ahead! Let's fill up the T4T Museum with retrieved treasures!

Congratulations to the winners and thank you for this hunt! I wasn't even close enough to get a prize lol. I read the solution very carefully, and I still think it is a little more ambiguous and difficult to ascertain a "precise" location, then I had anticipated, that is why there were so many submissions. I did find the Madam Butterfly thing almost instantly, but, after finding the pages from MW and reading all the stories etc, I began to have different ideas which created even more submissions! I believe, that the only way to really have a precise location, with little room for error, is to have a methodological solve. I also still think that there needs to be an answer box that we can submit our guesses with, and that would eliminate doubt about whether or not our submissions are going through, because I have sent numerous emails to others, without them going through. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy the hunt very much, and I learned a lot, I just think there should be "Solid Solves" Here is what I had, and why I was so sure that I had "SOLVED" it.
Jenny, you have to admit, this was a very strong and weird coincidence lol.
