    I am not a math wiz, but I will try to see if you are right. Thinking this would create one hell of a math problem with the distance involved from the amphitheater to the location. I did use measurements of what I understood to be clues. All of the other finders got to dig multiple holes. At this point I don't have that capability without stirring up trouble. It is very hard to know it is sitting there waiting. As for now I'm just another guy who claims he knows where it is. If I keep bothering the city park authority they will probably ban me from the park. It is a shame that it is this hard to dig a hole that can be filled back in.

      It is simple math..... The 982 is gone but I figured out where it was located using old areal photos and transferring this info to google earth.... You see the amphitheater is one of few constants in the park.... So much has changed.... But it has 3 points to the roof and can be used to triangulate accurate measures... And once I accomplished that, then I could figure locations of other important clues, such as the location of the fountain in the lake.... Most of the lake has been reshaped over time except for northern points such as the mini train tracks over it.....

        good day.
        its nice to see people still looking for the secrets!
        1. theres a young lady on you tube who has a pretty good solve for the houston secret. she isn't lining up the perspective of the tubes however she has the idea. good stuff. check it out.
        2. i have imo, the correct solve for montreal. 99.99999 % sure. . 100%!
        3. this is an incredibly simple solve once you are on it. it took under 5 minutes to solve. true story!
        i will retrieve the box this summer. can't wait.


        any thoughts, feel free to share.

          Interesting, I will try to find that on you tube. Good luck on retrieving the box. With all of the years that have passed it is challenging to dig because of nature. Please give us an update on your find.

            I took a look at the video on you tube. I spent some time at that park but could not come to any conclusion. You can't go any further than she did. It sparks interest because of the columns. This was a trick by Mr. Preiss. Their are pieces of each popular park in Houston in the artwork. Unfortunately she is wrong. I like the effort she has, and the adventure is unforgettable. Each piece of artwork has a landmark map to each casque location. Once you spot the landmarks and look at the details the ah hah factor will set in. It took me a long time to figure out his pattern. It is also easy to make a mistake. I thought it was at Baldwin park for the longest time. The historical marker says it is the setting for a jewel. There is a very old oak tree with four large limbs that come down and touch the ground. The tree looks like it is falling gently. I did have a lot of fun there! My new location is a done deal. If I was to post a video like that of my location, everyone with interest would run there immediately. I have thought about doing it illegally, but my conscience won't let me. Still waiting and wondering how to get it. I have thought about joining a large search group in hopes of gaining some backing. I can take anyone to the location with the art in hand and I am certain they would agree.

              thanks dez.
              my solve includes a no longer existing site/clue and i just found out a newly landscaped box location.
              imo, for what its worth, is that the verses contain clever/historical, yet simple clues.
              first the state/province, then the city, then the theme (of both the historic elements and the location), then the route the clues take you, then final directions to the box.

              knowing the theme of the history of the location enabled me to skip the the first half of the verse for my montreal solve.

              for the houston solve i think the key is "perspective".
              the 7 i believe various sized tubes in the art installation around the whole park.
              you need to replicate (stand in) the exact perspective point that lines up all the tubes like in the painting.
              if correct, there is only one spot in the park that would have the perspective displayed in the painting.
              a google earth above view angled then rotated gives the effect. on site would be way easier.

              please note i am only going off their solve, but i think they are close.

              google "Our strongest tower of delight Falls gently In December night" , this is a leaf.
              i would suggest that big tree in line with the spout, and the bench is close to the actual perspective point. give it a try.

              keep you exact location a secret so YOU can find it.
              you are right to be honest and ask before digging however the riches guy i ever met once said to me " it's easier to ask forgiveness than permission" .

              thanks for your thoughts.

                Yes the perspective is the most important part and how I solved Houston. The looking back from treasure ground puts you in the right direction. If he didn't put that in the verse it would possibly be unsolvable.

                  i have revised the expedition unknown milwaukee solve and used another's youtube solve, and i think that one is under the lions paw, imo, however they had the wrong lion and the wrong " pass three".
                  basically the lion on the "west" side of the bridge closest to the "U" shaped viewing platform just after three trees in the center of the path.
                  this would be the fifth lion you encounter.
                  2 at the beginning of the first bridge, 2 at the end of the bridge and keeping west, the lion on the left ( just past the"U") of the second bridge on path. the proud tall fifth.
                  ?????? maybe not????

                    I haven't dove into that one yet, but you might be right.
