still having a hard time leaving como, going back to possible boxing references from clue 3 and 4. Especially bomb cyclone which is a winter storm.

Jeffery Warner (AKA j.w. Storm) who used to be a professional wrestler and boxer owns the biggest house on churchHILL. Overlooking the park

There are sections of Central Park identified as Dale-East and Dale-West. Perhaps another way to interpret Clue #2

Clue #8
Not with cape, but maybe rake,
A hero, by another name,
With studious guys, searched for the prize
And up north the puck did claim.

You are right - there are strange pauses in this clue. A comma is used to separate ideas or clauses. Are these pieces all separate and not as related as they seem?

Yeah, now with clue 8, I have to go NORTH to Central...makes complete sense to abandon Como at this time.

I think you are right. Central Park fits the Queen clue so much better than Como and as others have said, Central Park has that New York connection. There is also a Brooks Ave that goes around the Southern portion of the park and Chatsworth, Churchill, Oxford and Lexington all run in to it.

Any thoughts on why more commas were used in this clue compared to how prior clues have been punctuated (or not)?

WBL is also the HQ site of Hockey Day in MN this year.

I think this clue is about Jake - ryhmes with rake. A "hero" for finding the puck with only 3 clues and causing a second medallion to be hidden - in Central Park.

The 2001 treasure was found at Como by 2 teachers (studious).  One was named Cathi Hogan (maybe hero = Hulk Hogan?).  Just a thought.

Yeah the part that gets me with that clue is it says buddy where I feel it's a person. So phalen could work, hamm for swede hollow?

I think PP is referring to Ellingson and crew who found it in WBL and the year before in Highland Park! Two time finders!

A hero by  another name could be a sub if we are talking sandwiches. That could help the case for como - or maybe I’m hungry. 


Re: PP Medallion Hunt - Clue #8

"by another name" could this be a reference to Shakespeare? "A rose by any other name" Rose Ave. is right near the grouping of streets previously mentioned.
The Queen song would be Victoria 
"
Killing it" would be N Kilburn

Also, parking the car, street references in the Queen song, and the sidewalks of New York all make me think they are trying to get us to look at street names. Maybe I'm just too zeroed in on Como though.

That is amazing!  I found the Treasure Hunt by Roger Barr from 1992 but not Map Guy's latest book.  UGH. 


Re: PP Medallion Hunt - Clue #8

That seems pretty obscure about Ragsdale. Map Guy makes sense as the person they're talking about, but do they really mean to give us the park this way? And you're right that it doesn't seem to fit the other clues very much. Maybe the park isn't the clue but rather his name, though I can't connect it to anything.

If so, how would any of the other clues fit this area? In earlier clues, when I thought the present CW sounded like Jim Ragsdale, I went to the Cooler Crew site to research past hunts and saw the 2015 hunt as a tribute to him. Is that what we are supposed to get from Clue 8? Some sort of tie-in to Jim?

We wondered the same thing. He sells his books in parking lots. Is he killing it down where they park the car? 😂

Are they talking about Map Guy in 2015 at Snail Lake?
