msteffel I was going to guess that next!! Wink


I had a feeling that might be your next guess. Wink I figured if you and NOSNOW where in the same ballpark you two might be on to something.

So then your not guessing at all???

Woo hoo! I'd like to thank all of the little people: children, midgets, jockeys, dwarfs, hobbits, etc. Wink

Yeah, I decided to guess soon after midnight since I had a feeling that my guess might be close for two reasons...

1) pfalstad was guessing around there (basically the equivalent of staking our pfalstad's house [might be why he moved recently lol] after a puzzle cache comes out and following him to gz Wink ). I don't know how he always seem to find a way to make a random guess be close.

2) I decided to look at it like a puzzle. I figure the travel bug numbers for all of the ordered clings were probably close, so I checked out a few travel bug sites and hoped to find the klings and maybe a number or two for them. When that didn't work, I did a search for 'MNGCA' travel bugs and found two window clings already out there, NOSNOW had one so I figured NOSNOW would think the same thing (plus his guess was close to pfalstad's) so I went with K6... and that is the rest of the story.

Thanks for the fun EPMN!! I have a plain old travel bug magnet (clearly not nearly as spiffy as these awesome MN window clings!! *cough* *PLUG* Wink ) on my car currently, so I guess I'll know those that are discovering it via the forum if they don't discover the other travel bug as well. Smile

Too bad I can't just log the find now, while I'm thinking about it, instead of waiting for you to activate it! Wink Razz

Actually, that wasn't NOSNOW. That was NOSND, a couple Red_Devil35 and I met at the OTAK breakfast event in Mankato last Saturday morning. I think we sold 4 or 5 that morning so there should be more running around including Ramsey63's!

As for stalking Pfalstad...I know nothing, NUTHHHHHing about that.

Embarassed Oops, it's those little details that always trip me up on puzzles. I'm sure I was working on a puzzle where D=OW, or ah, just thought they were related cause the names were so similar... yeah, that's the ticket. Wink

So I guess it was just following pfalstad. Sounds like a winning strategy for so many things! Cool Thanks Paul!

Now if I can find the time to figure out what I'm missing on that Quiz... Wink
