Hopefully these will turn up something interesting... I've mostly been lurking, but if anything shows up in/near DC I'd be happy to go check it out.

If anyone is going out to a location, be sure to bring a digital camera if you have one. You never know what you'll find or how easy it will be to take with you or write down.

Also, if it's something specific to a book, I think it's probably a good idea to just leave it there instead of checking it out. That way, others can come look at the clue, too. I'm sure Unfiction isn't the only group of people playing and it just seems like the polite thing to do.

I noticed that Murpha had a project in Pleasanton, CA. I'm from there, so if anything pops up there as well, I can cover it.

BTW, this is my first ARG. I'm finding this whole phenomena totally fascinating.

If anyone else plans on going there, please let me know (post here) so I don't waste a trip up there. Wink

nice work again, yeahyeah. Shame he didn't have a camera with him, really... would've given us all something to argue about. Very Happy

See if anything comes out of the other locations...

Anyone else have any updates/leads? We got some pretty good stuff from the Cafe in Chicago (the Emerson CD)... Which pretty much proved this stuff wasn't just to send us on a wild goose chase.

Have we had any more elaboration on the Boston Parking Garage clue? I live rigth in that area, I could go down and check it out.

I can see a reference to the Blue Line subway, but I can't read the street. I'm gonna try and enhance the image and get the rest of that text.

I'm very interested in this.

You probably need to go into the garage. That looks like a level and and area code. Level 8 area 23.

But Which one.

Here maybe: 8th street?

There is something else there after 8-23 but I can't make it out.
