I had been hoping I was alone in having noticed the #11 route! Shhh!

@alfabob
 

Here's where I think it could be, based on my google maps search. I don't have a car, so I can only search parks on computer at home.

I believe I am. I think I will be there by 9:30 or so

" Before it gets hotter" (Etna Street), "line three bodies water" (Frost Lake, Atlantic (street), and Lake Phalen). Stay within Frost Lake Park (it has the lake and ballfields and swing sets), in the bower (trees area) but not too close to Etna Street.

Best interpretation for Clue #6 that I've seen!


Re: Warning from StPaul Park & Rec

Well, Matt Bennett had picked Swede early on and has built up 210 points on it, but has since switched to Bruce Vento. Do you still want to switch as catching up is unlikely at this point?

So you have to dig around in a porta potty?! I think you would definitely want some rubber boots and a (hazmat) suit to do that!


Re: Warning from StPaul Park & Rec

@alfabob
 

Oh, and for grins, 10 on Frost Lake Park.


Re: Warning from StPaul Park & Rec

@alfabob
 

I wondered about this in post #263. I thought if the medallion WASN"T in IM park, and the PP wanted people to stay out of the sacred mounds area, the PP would announce that. But, since they didn't (at first) I thought that meant the medallion was there.

Re: Clue 9 2020

I wonder if "a park lit up some nights" is directing you to a small park that is lit up some nights, and not just a part of a larger park that is lit up. "Before it gets hotter" could just mean before that park is on everyone's list and therefore the  "hot pick", line (up) those (3) bodies of water and that park will be within that line and the site of the treasure.

Re: PPTH warning

Oh yea, that would totally work at Phalen too as you would have to go down to the most southern part of the park to take a swing at the tennis courts.

Near the tennis courts at Indian mounds (swing on down) there are supposedly three River Birch trees that provide quite a bit of shade... So I'm told


Re: Clue 9 2020

My interpretation is that in town means in St. Paul while swing down means go to the southern part of the park. Phalen has an outdoor hockey rink nearby with lights that would be on some nights. It could also be a reference to the Christmas light display they have hosted there, though I prefer a present tense explanation. Before it gets hotter, possibly suggesting it is already hot, could mean away from Frost Ave. in the north and closer to Burnquist in the south. Within Phalen there is a sign talking about the Phalen Creek watershed. If you look at the water flowing out of the first three "bodies", Willow, Kohlman, and Gervais, there is an arrow (line) pointing right at the SE corner of the lake. And then it says it will be in your "sites". Right where there arrow is pointing there is an "OnSite" porta potty.

I'm stuck on something with regards to Phalen:
While I agree that most of the clues seem to fit that southern area in the map above, in clue 7, the first two lines really sound like you have to go to lowertown and be near the Saints stadium (If you're in town, swing on down to a park lit up some nights). I interpret the second two lines as you have to line up the "sites" when there are not leaves on the trees (before it gets hot). I really can't square clue 7 with Phalen/BV.
