THE TREASURE TRAIL....
THE NEXT WAY TO GO
"The 'Telling Spot' must be the place we just located - the spot where the 3rd 300 meter contour crosses our path as we head towards Leo's Tooth from the Cove! But what on earth is the Only Needle?!"
"Good Q, Lou! There's only one needle, and that one's magnetic! The compass needle! So what ever direction it points in is 'false'! So we want the 'false' east - which I guess is perpendicular to the 'false' north!!"
"So let's figure out:
- The compass quadrant bearing for Magnetic North - which is the 'false north'!
- The compass quadrant bearing for the 'false east' - which must be perpendicular to the 'false north'!"
INSTRUCTIONS: Where you are asked to enter a number, only enter numerals; do not enter any letters or other symbols. Where you are asked to enter N, S, E or W, only enter capital letters.
"OK! Now we know in what direction to go from the 'Telling Spot'! And the clue tells us how far to go in that direction: as many leagues as miles to leagues!"
"So, Lou, where do we end up?! Where is the treasure??!!"
"You tell me, Lou! Which grid intersection is the treasure closest to?!!!"
INSTRUCTIONS: Enter the answer in the appropriate box and then click the button to the right of it to find out if the answer is correct. Put the capital letter first and then the number, with no space between them - for example, like W2!
"Now we can go get the treasure!"
"IF YOU GOT THE LOCATION RIGHT, CARRY ON!!"
