it was never in the Children's Zoo.

I agree. And feel compelled to point out that I've been saying this for years. Not surprisingly, Mark does not agree with me either.

Houston is my main area of searching.
but there does not seem to be really anything to discuss.
For those who think that the casque was buried in the children's zoo then the casque is gone and the hunt is over

For those who do not, then there is really nothing let to do but poke holes.

For the other nine The Japanese version was a big revealer but most ignore those clues and seem to drift back to the old theories than incorporate the Japanese clues

now I only question some of the verse image pairings. Some image verse pairings are rather solid, almost too solid I say for those that seem solid I do question why they haven't been found.

but then I think verse 1 image 8 is solid and I have poked a thousand probe holes in Herman park.

It is mind boggling how massive a small patch of land can be when you try to probe every 5 inches 2 feet deep

Still blanking on those who want to monetize this hunt though...

Here's just one person...

Accordingly, Mr. Pivanka has instructed us to take the appropriate steps to protect his intellectual property and business interest.


Obviously Renner and Gates would be another pair.

Are you really confounded about what Renovator means or who is trying to "monetize" (i.e., accrue value or one sort or another for themselves) by means of the puzzle?

People have been trying to use the information (or the information others supplied for free) in a manner that will bring them value for a while now. Some try to aggregate others' information to build stature, which is valuable to selling oneself to a company for profit. Some use the puzzle in attempt to bring themselves value in a way that will open up other opportunities.

Just because someone tries to "monetize" themselves with the puzzle and it doesn't pay off doesn't mean they haven't monetized. It just means they made a bad investment or are a shitty businessman.

Isn't the 13th casque a method of monetizing on the secret hunt as well?

I'd be happy to discuss further if you'd like to, MF. Feel free to PM me.

I think the goal here is to figure out what these lines are referring to:

In the center of four alike
Small, split,
Three winged and slight


I looked and looked but either I was off base or these clues are gone. Maybe try to find old photos, or do some research in a local library.

For the record, I think this could have been 4 picnic tables.

I'm referring to Atropos Key as the focal point for several lines of the verse, and however the casque was hidden is completely dependent on the sculpture location.

I remember that now. 2 issues.

1. The hill was regraded.
2. There is limited visibility to the sculptue.

Limited visibility? I thought it would be prominent at the top of its hill.

Yeah, regarding of the hill really throws.a wrench into things.

The Atropos Key is not nearly as significant as you might be thinking. While it is a cool sculpture, it is tiny in comparison to the Miller Theater. You can see it in Google Street View, mostly from the north side of the hill.

Even the Theater is tough to see once you move away from it because of the trees. Granted the landscape has changed in the past 37 years, but there have always been trees.

I'll roll the dice and say you may need to take your four down to two.

I hadn't noticed that before. If it is intentional, I would say it has a different significance.

IS TWO looks real. 2 feet away, or 2 paces away from something?

Or there are two of something inside the 4 of something. This would give you a bisecting line (potentially) to nail down the dig spot.

Not sure of it's significance and the exact method of applying it to the puzzle. I certainly didn't mean to imply that the 4 becomes 2, although it could be possible. There are several potential options. I was simply pointing out that it feels quite relevant and riddlish given the four alike text.
