Much better! Take you chill pill. Might need help lifting it!

No disagreement with anything stated here. I was simply making a distinction between a clue and shit. Wasn’t attempting to distinguish the importance of said clue/shit either. It’s very possible that I just worded it incorrectly. My bad.

No, no, no... don't apologize. Argue. If you think the clue is shit, say so, but be prepared to defend it when somebody asks why.

I completely understood what you were doing (i.e., trying to make a distinction between a clue and shit). I think I was the one who was misunderstood (as is often the case). I was pointing out that there are many different types of clues in these puzzles - something that anyone from any particular proclivity might be able to find. Some sports fan can find a Bears logo, some Classic Concentration fan sees a rebus, an architect sees a building, a coder finds some coordinates, an English professor finds a lit clue, and an art major notices a painting...

Just because YOU don't see the clue and somebody else does doesn't make it shit. A theory that makes sense to you may make little sense to somebody else. There's a lot of arguing about one theory being "a better fit" or a "closer match," but don't you realize that the rationale depends on YOUR proclivity?

Who's to say that JJP wasn't instructed by Byron to make some stupid rebus of Car-O-Line-A, and that is how JJP worked it in? Certainly not me. I have no idea. If someone sees it, they see it. If Erexere is the only one on the board that sees a rock in Oregon, does that mean a casque isn't there?

The point is, most every interpretation of any clue that has been offered on this board is subjective. How can you venture to argue with ANYBODY'S interpretation of a clue when your own is just as subjective and based on your own bias?

I don't care how outlandish sounding a theory about a particular clue or a puzzle in general is, there is no amount of argument that can settle whether it is shit or not - that is, when both sides are arguing using subjectivity.

Consensus doesn't equate with truth and, well, in truth be free.

Heading to OBX/Roanoke for a family vacation for a few days and to dig for a casque with permission (most likely early morning Friday August 16 or Saturday August 17)! Have a solid ‘solve’ that is neither Elizabethan Gardens nor Wright Brothers Memorial. If I have learned anything from prior digs for other casques, it is that I will need help digging (and, as noted below, possibly need a lot of help for this casque)—BINGO can vouch for me in this regard!

If I am correct, the specific object ‘under’ which the casque was buried in 1981 is no longer there. I should be able to get to the right spot based on other objects still there from 1981, but we may need to dig up a broader area to make sure we don’t just miss the spot. Let me know if you will be in the area and willing to help—the more, the merrier.

The best of luck to you. Having vacationed in the Outer Banks for over 20 years, I know that you and your family will have a wonderful time, regardless of whether the dig produces a casque.

Always thought Pear Pad was an odd name for a road in North Carolina.
Apparently there's a pretty good reason for it.

I bet there was a sign somewhere in the park in 1982 that talks about this plant. Maybe it's still there even now...

We have those here in Sonoma all over the place. They're called prickly pear cactus and the leaves are called pad.
I think that whole spoon, pea and teabag is the confirmer of Fort Raleigh area. The 'teabag' being a dogtag.

Hmm. Never thought it was much of a teabag.
My interpretation is that it was a pear pad. That in combination with the spoon is a reference to the name of the road shaped like a spoon. Pear Pad road.

Your pear pad may have a hole on top of it with chain running through it.
In either case it gets us to the same Fort Raleigh area.
