Thank you Jenny for posting this!
I will be busy this morning, so I will respond to any email submissions after about 1pm this afternoon. If you have the answer, send your email and I will send out the next puzzle in the order I receive the answers.
I'll have my phone, so I will still be able to answer questions or PMs here on the forum.

I have an update for any non-US-based treasure-hunters:
I do have a separate, different, prize for any non-US hunters. For this prize, the hunt is completely armchair. Just send me the location of the proxy to win the prize - no BOTG required. This prize will be awarded to the first non-US hunter to submit the correct answer.
If you are a non-US hunter, this is an armchair hunt. Do not send someone to retrieve the proxy.
This non-US prize will be available only as long as the hunt remains open. Once the proxy has been found and retrieved, the hunt will be over. If I have not received a solution from a non-US hunter by then, this prize will be withdrawn and used in a future hunt.
This update does not affect the US, boots-on-the-ground hunt in any way. The stated rules still apply for any US-based hunters and the hunt will remain open until the proxy item has been found.
I can't send the original prize overseas, but wanted to be able to include non-US residents in the hunt. I am trying different options to do this, and if this works out I will continue to offer alternate prizes to non-US treasure hunters.
Good luck everyone!
Let me know if you have any questions about this update.

I have received a few correct answers so far to the first part of this hunt, so congratulations to those who have moved on to part two!
I plan to post the first clue to part one tomorrow afternoon(Wednesday), and I am looking for suggestions on what kind of clue you would like me to post. Send your suggestions to me via PM here on MW or to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org

I'm ready for another clue to this first part of the hunt.
Quite a few people have now received the clues to part two, the directions to the buried proxy item. These treasure hunters have a head start on finding the proxy, but it remains safely buried so there is still time to get in on the hunt.
This is a free hunt and the prize has a value of about $50. The buried proxy item is kind of cool, too!
Here is the next hint to the first part of the hunt:

Next week, I will post a clue to part 2, so get in on the hunt today! It's not too late :-)
