Good luck Diane, and what a lovely idea to design a new hunt if you find the owl! I plan to do the same if I get lucky and find it.
I’m interested to know what everyone thinks of the ‘super solution’? Obviously, no one will give away their answer, but I find it interesting that Max said there were secret directions from the general area giving an exact place to dig… (perhaps a secret sentence like ‘3 metres from the path’ But, at the same time, no one is supposed to be able to find this without solving the rest of the clues. I found myself very stuck on all this, although now I have an idea for it. I’ll have to wait to see if it’s right. 🙂
