Clue, August 2022 – I haven’t posted new clues, because dozens of people are so close, it’s as if someone is just minutes away from the realization that points to the proper location. To get you there, I offer three simple words. Use this new clue to find the location. It stands by itself. Then reverse engineer to find the thinking behind the original riddle, and share it with me (remember, to use the email address in the Introduction of the book). What three words? reactors pints unloaded. I’m sure there will be those who throw up their arms and say, “Yet another riddle!” Let me assure you, those three words are not a riddle. Good luck!
Solved in August 2022.
