jakeinge's picture

This was the first of the mock hunts to run two clues per day, over the course of a single week.. The coin was found by Marley King, Ares, Me2, and TMK in Cherokee Park near the high bridge, wrapped in a chocolate filled baby diaper. We were not impressed.

Now "Old Hickory", if you studied history
Was General Andrew Jackson's informal title
Another Jackson may help solve this mystery
But keeping sight of the General's moniker is vital.
Explanation:
General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson was the Jackson who would help you solve this mystery as well as being the general whose moniker you needed to keep in sight. Which is to say that a stonewall was very near the treasure's hiding spot.
Our Thoughts:
This clue sounds strangely familiar.

There has been treasure
In this park before
But there are only three ways
For one to keep score.

Thirty to forty, forty to thirty
This clue may seem confusing
Remember that in the end
We'll think this hunt was rather amusing.
Explanation:
The first line about thirty and forty are referring to speed limits, and depending on which direction you are traveling on Smith Ave., you will either go to one or the other. The last line about the hunt being amusing was all you were going to get in regards to what the treasure was hidden in!!!

Roll the dice
Its one in six
Box it out
And you'll have your sticks.

This big dark cloud
It has you pinned.
