Yeah I actually messaged Pete about this one bc I thought maybe it was a legitimate typo, but of course, he replied with an "I can't comment on that". At least he responded to me lol. My initial thought was that since the first reading was north of this old town, that after arriving at the city location via either the hodaddy or nada clues, the final location is north of this city. Then when they're actually at the gnarled tree, the poem reads west as in the sun sets in the west. Since they're different lines I can't tell if the north or west line refers to the sun or the tree. Is it "as the sun shines down just west of this old town" or "just west of this old town, the eyes they look ahead"?
I just tried to figure if the lines are referring to the sun or the tree and I keep thinking the first time around it's referring to a northern location but then I read the second appearance of the poem and I'm really not so sure about it now. What would be the thinking behind changing the directions like that?
I'm assuming "this old town" is the same old town in each case.
Well when sue first reads the poem, they're not at the treasure location, so north tells us to head north. Then once sue is at the location, the poem reads west as in setting sun and/or the direction that the tree's "eyes" face. Just a possible reading of it.
