Think that could be intentional? If so... how?



Possibly because most of the stuff is historical references and no longer exist. The park is mostly devoid of physical markers.

I actually also looked into Hampton Park when I joined the hunt last year-- that area's gone through a lot of changes in recent decades, but back in the 1980s it would've been a dark, secluded place, perfect for BP to have buried a casque at night. I didn't personally find any clues which might indicate that a casque is buried there, though.

Fun fact: the late, great Pat Conroy, a Lowcountry author, included a few scenes in his novel "The Lords of Discipline" (1980) which mentioned how Hampton Park used to be home to a small zoo... including a lion. Oddly enough, the book also had a scene which discussed how Chief Osceola's body was stolen from Fort Moultrie in the dead of night...

There are no tangible clues in Hampton Park, unless you count the Wayside Inn and the Fountain, maybe the bandstand.

Hey premiernc, Not sure if anyone active here lives there, but I've been all over that area, so I am pretty familiar with it. Post your theory and we'll see where it takes you.

Thanks!
What do you mean it's not there? It has to be there... Unless it is somewhere else.

My apologies. We went almost two months without a Charleston post, so I had been playing around with New York and San Francisco. (And then there was the JC debacle.) I guess I just forgot about our Charlestonians. Sorry about that. I went back a few months, and I recalled actually having a conversation with graceandhayes who is also nearby down there. Hopefully, we can get this going again!

Thanks!

I have an alternative solve that works with the verse and the image. It is not in whitepoint park and I can point to a very small area for the probing.

Let me know. Thx a million.


Wow, Charleston AND NYC!!

Tried sharing the attached via Facebook and email with burnstyle and James Vachowski yesterday.
Not good with technology and loathe social media.
Facebook account got disabled and no response from email.
Thought I'd try to post a link instead.
Link is to a *.docx file which I believe lists around 5 'new' insights into the Charleston casque location

《Snip》
Link removed on request.

If the link from my google drive is not functional, I would appreciate some guidance on how to post

Hi EvelynMDog, welcome to Q4T! Sorry, I'm a little behind on emails at the moment-- I'm still on the other side of the world, my day job is a little busy right now, plus I'm putting the finishing touches on my latest book, due out in February. And oh yeah, Christmas!

I'll be sure to keep everyone posted if there's any kind of movement from NPS on my I2/V5 "solution" -- the contact I worked with seemed very open-minded, so I'm convinced that some sort of proper dig will happen... someday. Please be safe with your own explorations in the meantime-- Sullivan's Island PD doesn't mess around!

Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays!

Just an odd coincidence, picked up period encyclopedias and when looking through "D" pamphlet fell out for animal park in Charleston. The books were 1978 edition, links should be public , cheers

Ooh, nice. Please share more from these encyclopedias in as much as they might apply to each of the puzzles.

I noticed something on the image and I could not find any reference on the board so I thought I'd share. If you look under the pear there is what appears to be a stand of some kind reminds me of a water tank but I can't find one like this in Charleston.
