Well if you want serious...

It's typically difficult to get hints for puzzles from people other than the puzzle owner.

Although if you look at the hint, there's a pretty strong hint in there... that now I want to use to solve the thing Razz


As stated here, it is typically considered bad form (talking in general). The responses would have been much more off the wall if you would have asked in the Groundspeak Forums...

But, as Qwerty stated, send the owner an email for a hint...state what you have tired and I am sure they will offfer something...

Puzzle masters around here are all good. I lay out what I have done and what has happened and what I think the problem is and often times they will confirm or deny just enough to shove me in the right direction. I have never asked another cache finder for a shove unless I write the CO a couple of times and do not hear back from them in which case I might take the same approach with an experienced cacher and see if I can get a shove in the right direction from them.

I'd just hold out for the puzzle event.

Fair enough. How about "People other than the cache owner are typically reluctant to give puzzle hints in a public forum" Smile

Yeah...you need to check in a dark alley and look for the distinct glow of a GPS screen that has crossed over to the Dark Side...

Or, just find pfalstad during the day...either way it is the same person...

I'm gonna have to move, but I don't think I can afford a house in that neighborhood. I wonder if Pfalstad could lose a tail!
