This guy is a great writer and marketer. How many new copies were bought due to this? I'm guessing more than I care to know. Good luck and I am totally a believer if you find the loot and care to share.

Lots and lots of excellent ideas. I keep thinking! ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED!!!

Here's the deal, and I'm totally giving my game away, but whatever ... YOU drive/hike there and start digging if you want.

A famous author in his new book gives 8 clues in 8 illustrations leading to a buried cache. He even posts a photo of it. So far no one has located it yet, despite his millions of readers.

I don't know if the clues are in order, but I know they are correct. (For example, in one illustration, there is Morse code on a tiny piece of paper, which spells out BASIN).

The clues, in the order in which they appear, and in brackets my best guess at meaning are:

1. California VESA 99-S [If you take the 99-S from the Oregon border, you will hit Vesa Creek Trail]

2. DFG [Department of Fish and Game--have searched fruitlessly for a station around there. Maybe there is a map or pamphlet or license I need to obtain from the DFG?]

3. 8-5 [I have no idea. DFG is open from 8-5? Interstate 5? 8 miles down from I-5 (which is also 99-S) is where you'd go to get to Vesa Creek Trail].

4. 45 POLICE [.45 police revolver? What would I need that for? To blow the cache case open? There's no exit #45 anywhere near there, and the nearest police station is in Yreka, but I can't figure out what 45 has to do with POLICE.]

5. 42nd St., Locker #135. [Vesa Creek Trail is at 42N longitude. Still trying to figure 135 out.]

6. 25 PACES EAST

7. BIG

8. BASIN [If the clues are in order and I've gotten this far, then the cache is 25 paces east of the big basin. And there is one around Vesa Creek Trail.]

Any takers? I am totally obsessed with this

I don't know if this helps but there is a fruit inspection station on I5 about 8mi S. of the Oregon border.

I've been looking at this for about 10 minutes and I my only guess is to look at plot number 135 at the East Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Sacramento, head 25 paces east and you should see a large basin possible a bird bath or something (Basin: a bowl-shaped vessel; usually used for holding food or liquids)

Oh. Mah. Lands.

I saw this thread resurface a couple days ago and I was seriously thinking, WHAT KIND OF AN IDIOT CAN'T FIND 42N 135W on a map? Stupid CoJers who want to know how to boldface text, what the Excel shortcut is, any number of instantly Googlable questions ...

uh ...

Whoops.

I hope jhartman isn't my ex-boyfriend ... but thanks for the confirmation and additional clues!

I need to check on Strauss's website to see if anyone's found anything.

Also, his book Emergency is actually a very, very good read in light of recent threads about disaster preparedness.

Hopefully your ideas include plans for a time machine.
