When I mouse over the sign, I get a blank popup. I couldn't figure anything out with that.

Is that what you are talking about?

That's the spot. Look closely at it. (I actually had to rightclick --> save the picture and view it zoomed in a separate image program.)

I saw that before, but didn't think anything of it.

Thanks for the tip.

Somthing HEAD. I'll zoom in.

Hey YellowBolt, something interesting I discovered, probably means nothing, but the pattern of letters starts over at the beginning shortly after the white JA.

YellowBolt 06-17-2004 04:02 PM

Really... I'll keep a note of that. You never know what is useful in here...

If you noticed, on the truck page there's the number 73 in the bottom right corner, and the email link is different.

And on the black letters page, there's nothing interesting in the source except for this:

Zardoz

Hey Clodfobble,
I can't seem to read what that first word is. Can you tell me what it says?
I've tried FINTH, FIXTH, EIXTH, etc. etc. With the first three letters pretty much illegible for me, there are scores of possibilities.

The first letter looks like a E or a F
Second letter looks like a I or L
Third letter looks like a K X N
Fourth letter is pretty clearly a T
Fifth Letter is pretty clearly a H.

Maybe my Irfanview just isn't up to the task.

Edith.

Thanks. I was going batty.

Here's Zardoz.

Wierd flick.

Clodfobble 06-17-2004 04:42 PM

Also, the only letters represented on the page are A-J, which would correspond nicely with 0-9, but I've tried a bajillion number-for-letter substitutions trying to pull an ASCII message out of it, and I got nothing.

FWIW, I highly suspect this one is like the IJsselmeer page, where you must type in your new location in the address bar.

YellowBolt 06-17-2004 04:44 PM

Methinks it's a cipher. Since the Z is all by itself, it's safe to assume that Z->A or Z-I, right? Now we've got to figure out the rest.

I wonder if this has anything to do with zardoz?

EDIT: Oh oh oh! Guess what! The only letters used on that page are A thorough J! The first 10 letters of the alphabet!

Clodfobble 06-17-2004 04:52 PM

:) I was just about to post the cipher bit, it reads

"A one armed skeleton awaits" backwards.

edit: it's a straight reverse-correlation, a=z, b=y, c=x, etc. I checked it with some other nonsense from previous pages, the building page read "whereisthesheepman" at the bottom.

YellowBolt 06-17-2004 04:52 PM

Sweet. Thanks for that.

Not, it's not, handmade ciphers can be remarkably complex.

There is a description of the resort as well, i might look in that direction first.

Googling up "one armed skeleton" gives me this interesting book:

Senner's Gold
Helen Corbin
Historian Tom Kollenborn and former attorney general Bob Corbin finally reveal their search for the Superstitions other treasure.

A diary found in an attic trunk told the story of a cowboy-miner, his search for forbidden gold and of the other lives forever changed because of it.

The Mammoth - one of Arizona's richest mines - broken lives - lost treasures and a skeleton in a shallow grave.

About the Author:

After the success of The Curse of the Dutchman's Gold, the lore of the lost treasure compelled the author Corbin to write Senner's little known story. An exciting factional account based on a true story that occurred in the Arizona Territory over a hundred years ago.


The Map found in a faded diary led to a lost camp, a hidden cache
and a one-armed skeleton.

Corbin, winner of awards from the National and Arizona Press Women, is married to Bob Corbin. They reside in Phoenix, Arizona.

I'm gonna investigate about Senner's Gold, hold on.
