Read around a bit...this seems the most appropriate place to discuss...
I hid stuff in the backyard as a child. Put a quarter into one of those plastic ring holder eggs that came out of kids vending machines. Made a map...tried to
forget where it was...and a month later look for it. To this day...there is one still out there. I think I know roughly where too. Day dreaming about breaking codes to solve
the mystery of the lost __________ was a favorite idle time activity then and apparently is now as well.
I am now building a website as a little fun diversion from the daily grind. I am a Art Director by trade...so it's not really
too hard for me to whip up a site...it'll be 100% ready in about 2 and a half weeks or so. (I'm doing a very little bit here...there) Anyhoo, it'll be a puzzle, riddle, cipher, clue
web site. Solve everything correctly (and fastest) and there will be a real treasure at the end.
Do you guys like mind games? (Games that one needs a mind to play?) I've had a ton of fun making up the puzzles. I mean a ton of fun...if nobody shows up to
play my site...it was still time better spent than watching reruns of a cheesy sitcom.
But I do want people to play. I'm not charging a penny for anyone to do so. Is it spammy to give a link to the site here?
You guys tell me.

Sounds interesting. I'll take a peek. If would rather PM me the link that would be fine.

I'll just put up a link...I choose the least visited part of the site...if I was a hardcore spammer I'm not very good at it.

Send a e-mail to me through the link on the front page. I only use this to tell people exactly when launch date is.
You are not going to see a sudden influx of p3n1s cream e-mails or whatnot. ;P

I love puzzles and mind games. One of my other hobbies (which is still kind of treasure hunting related) is geocaching. Many of the caches can only be found if you figure out all the clues. I'll definately check out your site.

Cool. I did geocaching too. First few were absolutely GREAT fun. 3rd one was planted right in the middle of a large swath of poison ivy. UGGHH! That was not a fun 2 weeks afterwards.

Yeah, I've gotten more than my fair share of poison ivy over the years while out looking for stuff.

Yeah...kinda would be nice if people considered such things when hiding these geocaches...
Decided to launch the site on 6.18.12 fyi...

I will def check it out. I like the, "What is it?" section of this site and loved The 11th Hour computer game, so it sounds like a lot of fun for me.
