Shouldn't they have said "line (up) three bodies (of) water,
and you'll have it in your sights (not sites)"?
Anyway,. here's an interesting link on 3 bodies of water: https://www.rwmwd.org/three-creeks-in-one-a-meandering-mirror-of-the-past/


Re: Clue #7 - 2020

They definitely left out the words "up" and "of" which is odd. And they definitely spelled "sights" wrong which is also odd. Perhaps an anagram? It is found in a list of sites?

Clue #7 - 2020

Allison Wonderland
 

Clue #7
If you’re in town, swing on down 
To a park lit up some nights
Before it gets hotter, line three bodies water
And you’ll have it in your sites
 
Clue #6
Once at the summit, it did quite plummet
Before it got to the bluff
Starting and stopping, winding and hopping
It will eventually lead to the stuff
 
Clue #5
We will protect each clue from the GRU
Nyet hackers! Have you no shame?
They may fix our elections, but we'll spark insurrection,
If they try to interfere with our game
 
Clue #4
One patterned neat and trim, one salvaged life and limb
Did the two cutters who lived down the way.
Herringbones or sawbones?
You decide which will play.
 
Clue #3
This hunt’s guarantor settles that forevermore
Noodlers treasure noggins; keep that in mind.
So doff your warm cap, study dog-eared map
And genuflect in the presence of the find.
 
Clue #2
Though the times be quite peachy, we do so beseech ye,
To venture out of doors for a romp
As you traipse through the snow, your medallions aglow,
Careful of what flora you stomp
 
Clue #1
There’s just enough snow and temperatures low
To rouse us from our snoozing
And hide the MacGuffin, no we ain’t bluffin,
In a park of our very own choosing.
 
The Vikings are done, the Twins yet begun
What excuse do you have to dawdle?
Gather your kin, prepare for the win
And be sure to bring a hot bottle


Clue #7 Scrambled - 2020

Allison Wonderland
 

Clue 7 scrambled:

water it your Before lit a you’ll

you’re down it three nights have gets

town, And swing line on in some

park in hotter, up To bodies sites If


Here is my rough guess for the scrambled clue:

If you’re in town, swing down 
To a park in some sites lit
And it gets hotter, line your bodies upon water
Before three nights you’ll have it

Re: Clue 6 Info

Matt, I love your noodling on these clues.  And the Wild connection is perfect being the PP did a hunt there one summer connected with the Wild.

 

The map seems to indicate some herringbone pattern.  😊

 

For clue three, I have thought that the genuflect, being a mostly Catholic term (speaking as a recovering Catholic), would mean the view of the Cathedral from some parts of IM.

 

For clue 5, the stonecutters part – I had found that too.  I believe though that the stonecutters, which there were many, is a connection to the State Capital that is also visible from the park.   Frank St running parallel to Johnson Pkwy might be in play too.

 

This link shows a picture of the St. Paul Skyline that shows both the Capital and the Cathedral:  https://www.nps.gov/miss/planyourvisit/indimoun.htm

 

For clue 6, I didn’t know about the ski jump. Cool beans learn something new.  I wonder If the hopping would be too much of a stretch to bring the Hopewell tribe yo mind.  They are one of the tribes and likely the first to be buried in those mounds. The Hopewell is where my mind went quickly because I know the history.

My case for Indian Mounds. Most of these noodles are not my own, but at this point it's the best compilation I can come up with.

Clue 1: We aint bluffin - Sometimes clue 1 can be as obvious as it seems. They are in fact not bluffing that it's in a park on a bluff. Vikings are done, Twins haven't started so what excuse do you have not to be in the city of St. Paul, supporting the wild.
Clue 2: IMpeachment, Johnson parkway leads right to the park. Andrew Johnson was the first impeached president. There certainly would be flora to be careful of (the mounds themselves and also Thorn street)
Clue 3: I liked David's thought that it's in a park covered by Mappy's book (dog-eared means folding the corner of a page down to bookmark it so a physical map like Map Guy's). You also might kneel to honor the dead who are buried here.
Clue 4: This one might be a stretch, but here goes. There were two stone cutters involved in an accident while building the St. Paul capitol building. One passed away (Albert Swanson) but one survived and only suffered a broken leg (he definitely salvaged life and limb). His name was FRANK Thiery. Frank street parallels Johnson parkway leading to IM park.
Clue 5: GRU airport code for Sao Paulo (St. Paul) references clear visibility of the St. Paul airport and the airway beacon still stands.
Clue 6: The first ever Ski Jump in St. Paul was built in Indian Mounds, before being destroyed and rebuilt in Battle Creek. A ski jumping hill certainly has a summit and would obviously plummet. You would wind yourself up before hopping off the end of the jump. Hopefully you'll stop before you reach the bluff.

Cheers.

It could cross Summit Ave. or go by Summit Brewing as there aren't a lot of true summits in the county. I will say I heard a theory that I think is likely correct, but I didn't hear it somewhere I can post publicly. But do note that the clue is written to sound like the past tense.

It assumes the medallion was found yesterday on Clue 5. So your guesses from Clue 1 get multiplied by 5 (for 5 clues), so 50 points. Your clue 2 guesses are multiplied by 4, so 40 points. And then 30, 20, and 10 for your guesses on the day the medallion was (theoretically) found. That's a total of 150. Now on clue 6, all the previous guesses bump up another 10 in value (10x6) + (10x5) + (10x4) + (10x3) + (10x2) and you have 10 more for today, so now you have 210 points total. Tomorrow it will be 280, and then 360, and then 450 if the hunt keeps going.

Clue 1: We aint bluffin - Sometimes clue 1 can be as obvious as it seems. They are in fact not bluffing that it's in a park on a bluff. Vikings are done, Twins haven't started so what excuse do you have not to be in the city of St. Paul, supporting the wild.
Clue 2: IMpeachment, Johnson parkway leads right to the park. Andrew Johnson was the first impeached president. There certainly would be flora to be careful of (the mounds themselves and also Thorn street)
Clue 3: I liked David's thought that it's in a park covered by Mappy's book (dog-eared means folding the corner of a page down to bookmark it so a physical map like Map Guy's). You also might kneel to honor the dead who are buried here.
Clue 4: This one might be a stretch, but here goes. There were two stone cutters involved in an accident while building the St. Paul capitol building. One passed away (Albert Swanson) but one survived and only suffered a broken leg (he definitely salvaged life and limb). His name was FRANK Thiery. Frank street parallels Johnson parkway leading to IM park.
Clue 5: GRU airport code for Sao Paulo (St. Paul) references clear visibility of the St. Paul airport and the airway beacon still stands.
Clue 6: The first ever Ski Jump in St. Paul was built in Indian Mounds, before being destroyed and rebuilt in Battle Creek. A ski jumping hill certainly has a summit and would obviously plummet. You would wind yourself up before hopping off the end of the jump. Hopefully you'll stop before you reach the bluff.

Cheers.

I kind of thought that, but a waterfall would only plummet after it got to the bluff. So it would make more sense if it was referring to the creek itself. Phalen creek for example winds around, it stops and starts as it hops above and below ground. It does descend and eventually empties into the Mississippi so it must reach the bluff. The only thing is I'd hesitate to say it reached a summit, but I think you're looking for something like that. It's a line of some sort on the map that winds around and gets to a bluff at some point. Though the treasure isn't necessarily at the bluff. I think the treasure is where one end of the line is. It could cross Summit Ave. or go by Summit Brewing as there aren't a lot of true summits in the county. I will say I heard a theory that I think is likely correct, but I didn't hear it somewhere I can post publicly. But do note that the clue is written to sound like the past tense.

Yes, this year it was on Tuesday. I think that's about as far into the hunt as it gets and next year it will be before the hunt maybe.

When the medallion was at Conway, it's wasn't found on the boulevard. It was a little further in, roughly in line with the bench behind the backstop.

I've been thinking about the tracks in the video (the video seems to have been removed now) and I still think they are cross country tracks. Not from a single skier, or groomed tracks, but if you have multiple people forging their way through over time, the tracks can widen. Regardless, once you get to the park, look for some tracks!
