A big CONGRATULATIONS to Larry G. for submitting a correct solution and GPS coordinates that came within roughly 125 feet of where I hid the cache. I'll be posting a full solution later this week. But, as of 02/10/2018 at 11:15am EST, this hunt is over!
A good number of people worked hard on this hunt and I thank everyone who did for giving it a shot. It my attempt to emulate Forrest Fenn, I've learned a great many things about hiding treasures and crafting clues to get people to the right spot. I've also learned quite a few things about what it takes to successfully solve a treasure hunt. One key thing is persistence. Like Larry, don't give up. If you feel you've locked in on a promising location, keep at it. In some instances, your instinct may be more trustworthy than your logic.
I plan to continue hiding treasures, both real and virtual. So please stick around or check back from time to time. I'll be sure to post on Jenny's site (Mysterious Writings) as well so keep an eye out.
Keep on seeking! Well, not for this one. Hopefully you know what I mean.
