Anyone else working on this hunt! I felt like I was breaking this really easy until I hit a wall and no matter what I try, I cannot seem to move forward! Anyone else working on this, I would love to compare notes and see if we can move it forward!

Is this hunt even still happening? I decoded the majority of the book one night at a bar and found it completely straightforward and simple (hint: even without the clues, all but one section could be solved as a simple cryptogram) though I found the writing itself tedious, so once the book was decoded, I stopped working on the hunt entirely. That decision was also influenced by the writer disappearing from the internet, the purchase site being deleted and no new clues emerging, though the author does give out his personal phone number (?) in the last chapter of the book.
I don't have any burning desire to solve/win the hunt, but I am more than happy to share any ideas or thoughts I had if folks are still working on it. Also, I live in California now, so once we can go BOTG again, I'm happy to go and fetch the key -- was it even a key? I can't remember what we were even looking for -- for whoever solves it. And no, it's not in Los Angeles, from what I can tell. If it were, I might've stuck with it out of convenience.
