What in the Hell??? How can someone sell a treasure hunt telling people to look for clues.... knowing that some clues are false... and other clues which are true will cause people to spend huge amounts of time and money traveling only for the treasure NOT to be there because there are 3 different hunts embedded in a book... where he never even told anyone about this craziness until months after the book was sold and people's money was spent?? How can ANY ONE OF YOU be tolerating this by continuing this hunt? Even if you solve it you have a 2 in 3 chance of wasting a lot of money traveling to go find it. This is OUTRAGEOUS and I cant believe you people are ok with it. Ive seen A LOT of armchair treasure hunts and NEVER anything like this. There is something VERY WRONG here.
Simple. Once this and a few other things came to light, I have a book only. No hunt exists. Not worth it. It is a good lesson for me to examine the hunt before I jump in. I dont think outrageous,, just "buyer beware", I got duped. Shame on me.
But I respect others if they want to continue but seriously don't get it.

I'm backing off too; have been since the long interview came out. But I'm not going to get angry about it, I've wasted enough energy on this wild goose chase. Maybe if some clarification comes out I'll jump back in.
I don not see how it could improve (understanding clues) by adding one new chapter to Activate one of the other hunts, What about the list of jobs Nelson had that the clues for Nelsons hunt was made, what about the sunshine tree poem, so many Red herrings would still be there. Running down the hill when he sees Quarry girl. The ball peen hammers, the new year eve party. I posted else where, but would he not have to all ready hid the objects for the other two hunts, if not, how does he know the area, park, or what ever will still the was it was, they may have paved paradise, as the song goes. I think he would have to hid the objects in 2014, well b4 the book was finished in 2015,, else when he got ready to hide them, the areas could be totally different. For example, A storm could take out a tree.
The other point is that the three hiding locations were chosen at "random" (by blindfold picks on a huge map), so they should bear no close relationship that could move from one location to the next, using a slight twist on the clues.
For me it depends on the solution. Of course that won't come out until the end so do I work on it or not?
Well, you could look over the video promised at book purchase of him hiding the treasure wait...... that was not provided.
Maybe you can begin buying the various products to ensure Pete makes a profit. In the one video he has said he edited his other products to create hints outside of the book, get your credit card ready.
Maybe you can do what Pete suggests and get more people you know involved to buy his book and products so it lessens your chances but increases his revenue. He actually said this in the video.
Maybe you can try to get OFF the spam list, like I did and the spam continues to come. I have emailed customer service as well as Pete himself. I am now even getting mailers.
I got involved due to your very cool vblog (though don't blame you at all!) but I do think you should find some new hunts, do a vblog and that will get you even more of a following as your vblog was the only cool part of this hunt.
