Not alot of guesses for this pic. Although the 'Fountain of Youth' comment was a non-serious guess since it has a picture of either a tidal borehole (the plants don't match a sal****er or even tidal environment though, a waterfall, or some kind of natural geyser. Plus the whole tropical picture of it just gave that kind of image.

Some people probably PMed thiers and/or are taking their time since there is more time than typical for this game.

What's a sal****er?

Anyways, my guess is Africa.

Will, guess the Bonus when I have a clue to what it is.

Thats Salt Water. The filter blocks it for some reason when you say it as one word.

It's a four letter swear word.



Hong Kong.



As for the bonus, the Dead Sea.

I'm guessing Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida. It reminds me of that, like the Hippo pond or something.

Bonus: I'll have to work on that one. Will edit later.

edit:Bonus guess is Mount Kilimanjaro

This should be updated tomorrow so better get your guesses in. We can work together on the bonus you know. I have no clue except maybe it's coded and we have to figure out a key.

We need at least a place to start.

For example, I find quote cryptograms in the newspaper impossible until I look at even one letter of the answer, and then I use logic to figure it out from there.

Bonus: The Appalachain Mountains (or just The Appalachains)???? Just an out of the blue guess based on Eastern Monteus thing there in Kenotai's post. Anybody else can join in and use my guess as well. Better hurry, no idea when Ovi will be back on, this afternoon most likely.

Being that Ovi is a math wiz he probably did do something like that with the numbers. He'll be back after work today so maybe sometime between 7-9 pm. I actually was thinking something with mount or mountain before.

My guess will be Mount Kilimanjaro for now.

*Good job with the dissection Kenotai, even if it's not right, that's pretty impressive.

My thoughts were maybe along the line of a number corresponding with the alphabet.

A - 1
B - 2 and so on. That would be too easy so maybe he started on a different letter/number combo.
That would make it CHIGIBGFEHIGDEIIIDFI... doesn't make sense

What if the 7's were spaces?

Notice that the 9s go in a row of three at one point, I don't know of any place names (at least in english) that have three letters in a row like that. There are some places with native american names that might have it like that. I'll assume that it is in english or at least the english spelling since it wouldn't be fair otherwise.

Anyways, Kenobro is right, we need a starting place, but then again, that would make it too easy would it? It's something that Ovi isn't expecting us to actually get, so.....

38-7-27658-745---46-

3 97927 5 97 5999  9 (no even numbers) c igibg e ig eiii i

 8   2 6 8  4    46 (no odd numbers) h b f h d d f

...and those are the simple ones that I know.

what if it was a corresponding letter down the keyboard.. like under 1 is qaz so 1 could be either of those 3. That would make 9 and o or l.

The 3 9's are confusing to me too.

edc - ik - ol - ujm ...

eilu...
dilm...
cim...

edit: other thoughts.. the number is divisable by 3 and the Octal number is 163621530461540507155.

I think you might be onto something.....

Also just noticed that it only has numbers from 2-9, which may or may not be related to my thought.

2= abc
3= def
4= ghi
5=jkl
6=mno
7=pqrs
8=tuv
9=wxyz

38979276589745999469

dtwpwapmj............
euxqxbqnk..........
fvyrycrol..............
  zszs.................

......I think that idea of mine might be a dead end, I don't see anything recognizable there.

quphklbqqtasjjbnro

j--ro appears when I apply the second rule (under the binary).

What if I use the binary on the oct code (with zero's meaning to discount).

163621530461540507155
0011001100111000001110010011011100111001001100100011011100110110001101010011100000111001001101110011010000110101001110010011100100111001001101000011011000111001

With LadyM's code:
cfecfaeaee

No good.

With my rule:
eofjvbero

No good again.

Next to each other
cfecfaeaeeeofjvbero

Three E's?  And we have three 9's?

9=E, so a rule of +4 seems to be at work.  Let's subtract four from each.


38979276589745999469

(-1)4535(-2)32145301555025

4535321453155525

LadyM's: dececbadecaeeebe
Kenotai's:rosjzcvqyopgznqy

First one looks legit, second one not so much.

LadyM's, only vowels:eeaeaeeee
Kenotai's, only consonants: rsjzcvqypgznqy
With vowels in appropriate looking places: resejazecaveqeyepgznqy

Not enough vowels, it seems.

The number, my rule, only vowels: aeoouoaoouiiiiaa
The number, my rule, only consonants: tfjcnqwphlzntfhx

I'll let you look at that and see if there's anything else I can do.
