Leave Clues by Lincøln

April 13th, 2008 12:57 PM

INSTRUCTIONS: Leave clues.

So I left clues.

I went and buried something for my friend (it was Yellowbear, who I've never met, but that is what is required of the task, but anyway), and I didn't just tell him where it was, I left clues to tell him where it was (check out how he followed the clues he found). So I had to jump over a fence and tape a clue onto his front door.

To protect his secret identity, I took no picture of his actual place. But here is me with the first clue.
The beginning of the quest

This is what that first clue said:
The first clue. And challenge.

It led Yellowbear up to the top of Grandview Park. And the view from Grandview Park is, actually quite grand.
Grandview Park

And this is the stairway under which the next clue was taped.
The stairs

And this is the next clue.
The next clue

It led Yellowbear down to that Washington Mutual right down there at the bottom of the hill. I hid the next clue in a deposit envelope at the ATM.

I didn't take a photograph of the ATM, because I wanted to get in and out of there quickly, and I didn't stop to take pictures.

But it was in there, and the note within was this.
A clue

Which sent Yellowbear to this bus stop.
Bus stop

Where he found this note.
A clue!

Which led him to a park (where he got a little bit lost, but called the ACME detective agency, and luckily they were able to help him find the correct park. And out in center field of that park was this grate where the next clue was.
Center field
The clue!

Which led him to this mailbox outside of a Chinese video store.
Mailbox

The next clue was behind this fire alarm near Golden Gate Park.
The fire alarm

This was the clue!
Last clue!

Which led him to this tree stump.
The trees

On that tree stump was another clue.
A yellow bear!

To see where that clue led, you have to read the next task.

Yellowbear, you are being called out, if not out of SFØ retirement, at least out of the house. Before you lies a trail of clues. At the end of which lies a gift made just for you. First you'll need to go to the top of Grandview Park and find your first clue under the top stair landing of the wood stairway. Good luck.

There is a park with a misleading name, because it's there even when the sun isn't setting. There is a baseball field in this park, in the deepest part of center field there is a metal grate in the grass. Next to that grate is a capped pipe. Behind this pipe is the clue you seek.
