Park Pick Pool Update

Allison Wonderland
 

So as we close in on Clue 8, here is where the pool picks stand on Clue 7. There is a definite lack of a favorite.

Some of the random names and parks you see on there are left over from last year as I didn't want to recreate all of my formulas in Excel.

Ahh, sometimes you get a countdown on some of those newer cross walks, mostly near the city though, but maybe out in the burbs areas? But would those start at 11? I've seen them count down from 20 and then actually get audible with spoken numbers for visual impaired. So just a thought to look for some advanced cross walks nearby, and across the street, your heaven...or ie.. the part of the park your looking for?

After being out today and reflecting on the clues again it’s obvious to me now ( fool me once , won’t get fooled again) that the clue seven is imploring us to hunt from our homes and then get out and hit the snow.

Basically asking us to go on google maps (flying high eagle look down = birds eye view) and find stuff that fits the clues. Folks will remember they used this type of clue last year with the three bodies water clue.

I guess they get points for telling us to do it now. The evolution of the hunt I suppose.

I noticed eagle street above Harriet as well. There is a plaque there that has a statue of snoopy (beagle) and Charlie Brown. However gatsby does fit WBL therefor I’m going to put 5 votes on matoska and 5 on Harriet

I think you are correct about WBL, however there are other 11 streets around. I found one downtown that connects with eagle street/parkway that points to Harriet across the river. I will put 10 down on Harriet clue 7 since there is little interest in Harriet on your park pick. There are also 11 sport fields in Como so that has me kinda wondering. The Gatsby fits WBL though.

Sniff out like a beagle----First Flight Finishers?? Take it with a maragita and grain of salt. I was convinced it was at Boyd Park until clue 4.  :)

There are groups you have to pay for? Most of the other discussion I have seen is on Facebook.

The parks in White Bear Lake are kind of small parks. It seems a little odd they would point you to those this early. I kind of wonder if it could be on public land not in a park. Like if you were to count the streets down to a theoretical 0, you'd be at the intersection of 96 and 61. The one way Lake Ave also comes out there, and Bald Eagle Parkway dead ends there in a little loop with a little bit of green in the middle of the loop. So maybe something like that or along the railroad tracks there.

Clue 7 Guess

I'm feeling like it has to be White Bear Lake and now I'm thinking West Park in particular. It is right next to another park which is basically a beach. That would make sense as to why they would say "avoid the shifting sands". There's a couple of things I can't quite fit but that's ok because usually if all the clues fit perfectly, you're in the wrong park. So I'm moving all 10 guesses to West Park in White Bear Lake.

Would they blatantly give the park in clue 7? Especially if it's the same clue writer as last year?

Think this clue and no oncoming dread is specifically Lake Ave - the closest road to WBL.

Part of Lake Ave runs as County Road 96 but a stretch from Memorial Beach/ west pro runs as a one way street starting at 11th and going past 1st.

Parks passed along the way are Memorial Beach/West Park and Matoska. This is actually very informative since it would seemingly tel you to avoid the other large park on the shores of WBL : County Park.

See you all out there

Well this definitely has me thinking White Bear Lake as the streets on the east side of 61 go from 1st St to 11th St. There's a McDonald's on 10 (lovin' it?). It's next to Rudy's Redeye Steak House which I suppose a beagle might love to sniff. There's a few parks close to there on the lake. Or a little farther is Matoska Park with the White Bear Dog Beach. Somewhere in that area sounds promising at the moment.
