I have to say, I'm impressed at how quickly this one was solved. I would have thought this one was a bona-fide stumper. For those of you who would like to know the solving steps, you can look below:
Start just past the “Monkey Center”: (this tells you which paragraph to start in)
(1,4) (1st word, 4th letter = S) South
(1,1) - 1 (1st word, 1st letter = T - 1 = S) South
(6,1) & (2,1) (6th word, 1st letter = S & 2nd word, 1st letter = W... so SW) Southwest
(9,3) (9th word, third letter = W) West
(16,3) & (21,1) + 1 (16th word, 3rd letter = N & 21st word, 1st letter = V + 1 = W) Northwest
(22,3) (22nd word, 3rd letter = N) North
(5,4) (5th word, 4th letter = N) North
So Clue #1 gives you some directions; S, S, SW, W, NW, N, N
If you start at the Monkey center on the grid map and draw a line between points based on the above directions, you get a shape that resembles a "U"
Following this and the other clues directions, we get; "U" "A" "B" "S" and "C"
If you rearrange those letters, you get...
So... that means that Nancy, and alternatively you, will get to go diving underwater in Ransom of the Seven Ships. Trust me when I say you're going to love it!
Thanks for participating, till next time!
