## "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: |

## "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!" |

## "What's a 'league'!" | ||

## "An old unit of distance measurement! This graph shows the relationship between leagues and miles! " | ||

## "So what's 'as many leagues as miles to leagues' mean?!" | ||

## "Figure out how many miles to a league - and that's how many leagues!!" |

## "So, Lou, where do we end up?! Where is the treasure??!!" | ||

## "You tell me, Lou! Which grid intersection is the treasure closest to?!!!" |

## "Now we can go get the treasure!" |

## "IF YOU GOT THE LOCATION RIGHT, CARRY ON!!" |
