First FloorEdit

  • Number Found: 4
  • Found By/On: Catherine / May 24, 2010
  • State: Virginia -- The three photographs on the wall are Thomas Jefferson, Dave Matthews, and Missy Elliott. All three have ties to Virginia.

Second FloorEdit

Third FloorEdit

Fourth FloorEdit

  • Number Found: 1
  • Found By/On: cosmicjay /September 6, 2010
  • State: Maryland --the sheet music shows a 7th interval; MD is the 7th state.
  • Highway: I-95 -- the temperature of the thermometer
  • Mile: 81--- the carrots on the counter are braille for 8, plus the shape of the cupboard is a 1 = 81. 5 in wood chips gets you to turn the book upside down so the braille is right.
  • Mile: 81--- The octagonal clock with both hands on the 1. "Squaring the circle" clue fits because an octagon is somewhere between a square and a circle.
  • Mile: 81 -- the muffin pan in the kitchen has nine circles in it, "squaring the cirles" 9 to the 2nd power, gives you 81 as the mile marker. Gus's clue, "squaring the circles" seems a better solve than the braille 8 plus the cabinet top. Braille #8 refers to the slices NOT the whole carrots.
