Clues by Number
Crazy catch deep too, it's like Ff never does anything like SB stuff without a hint if you know how to get the hint. Numbers surly are relevant but how to pick out the right ones ?

I don't think anyone got this joke about Val Kilmer playing the part of the TC in a movie. HA! I crack myself up sometimes. Smile

And yes, I quoted myself. lol

28. Twenty-eight.

I'm curious as to why you think 28 is significant. 22 I understand, but why 28?

I don't necessarily think 28 is significant. I'm just going through a sequence of numbers that start at 22, and then I add the last 3 digits of pi to get the next number.

Thanks for your question.

If you got the last 3 digits of pi you don't need the treasure. Congrats

29. Twenty-nine.

I-29.

Turn the page (Bob Seger, 1973):

On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha
You can listen to the engine moanin' out his one note song
You can think about the woman or the girl you knew the night before

But your thoughts will soon be wandering the way they always do
When you're ridin' sixteen hours and there's nothin' left to do
And you don't feel much like riding, you just wish the trip was through


The long ride home (TTOTC, 2010):

It was on a long, straight stretch of road with no cars or people around anywhere.

The way I read it, we have two long and lonesome highways here. One them is east of Omaha. That's Omaha, Nebraska. Omaha, NE.

As I have go NE alone in there

Which highway east of Omaha is long and lonesome? Interstate 80 is the primary east-west highway that goes through Omaha. As for smaller US Highways or state routes that can also be found to the east, there are probably 50 or more.

The primary north-south highway, Interstate 29, skirts the eastern boundary of the city. If you drive south from Omaha on I-29, you go southeast towards Kansas City, making you east of Omaha the entire time. East generally, if not exactly 90 degrees east.

I-29. Bingo.

30. Thirty.
30 days in the Hole.

One of Humble Pie's most well-known songs. Could it also be instructions to the Eventual Finder, to keep the treasure in a safe place? Or to keep your Pie Hole shut? Treasure hunting is not all smiles and grins.

Instructions or not, I think it's a feeling many of us can relate to during these challenging times. Of course, I don't mean to suggest your home is a literal hole (or jail - although it may feel like solitairey confinement for some us). It's just that after a few home-bound weeks, it sometimes feel like the walls have moved in a little tighter. We'll get through this, everyone. Keep your eyes on the prize.

Unless you're a hobbit, haha. Your home would be a literal hole in that case, I mean. Actually, does a hobbit live in a hole, or in a hill? Or a hole in a hill? I suppose if you were to ask a hobbit where their home was, you may hear, "The Shire," in response. I can also imagine a crossword puzzle clue, "Home of hobbits," for which the correct answer may be MIDDLEEARTH.

Anyway. How deep is a hole? - anybody's guess. Or, as deep as you want.

How deep is the Hole? - that seems like a question that could be answered, but we'd still have to know which Hole. What can we learn about the Hole, that may help us identify the kind of Hole in question?

For example, do we know what is (or goes) in it?

Gold or silver - it's a mine.
Golf balls - it's on a golf course.
Water - it's a lake, a spring, or a [well].

This still feels like too restrictive of a question, as it doesn't address moth holes, wormholes, or black holes [edited by moderator to delete racist url] in a satisfactory way. What if, instead, we question the nature of the Hole. The reason for existence, of the Hole.

Why is there a Hole? What led to the Hole?

What leads to the Hole. That's it! There must be something that leads to the Hole, maybe a road, or a trail, or a bridge.

Follow the swallow to the hollow.

Some excellent points and/or hints by Thrillchaser. I deleted one minor link that could be construed as racist.

Do you have an idea on how this translates into a search area? Will you marry these clues to a map?

Thanks for sharing your work

RE: Clues by Number
I tink that using any non-irrational numbers in solving the poem will slow the solving process.

Use of a significant irrational number won't help much but could provide a small hint if a solver has made
some significant progress in solving the poem.
