5/25/05 | 9:00 am | Hershey Kiss

click to search using Google MapsWhat’s up. And all that good morning business. I would like you to check out this tiny Hershey’s Kiss that Jeremy R sent in. When I was a kid I would often accidentally eat some of the metal foil wrapped around those Hershey’s Kisses in my haste to cram 3 or 4 in my mouth. If you have metal fillings, this can provide a distinctly unpleasant feeling in your teeth. Ugh!

Anyhow, the connection seems to be back at my house so I can most likely update as we go. The Hershey Kiss is visible from 12/15 out, though 13/15 is a better bet for most. Funny how the shoreline around this little pond is greyish so it could almost be the silver wrapper on the kiss.

I’ve once again mangled Jeremy’s word clues. I added to his clue, because I thought it might be not enough information on its own. With trepidation, here you go:

Word Clues: “Simple, Ought to lead you to the potato king”

Man, I am extremely nervous about this clue. It’s hard to see from the outside in, if you know what I mean. I am just not sure if this is enough information. Add to that the fact that the clue is fairly small and… we will see I guess. Expect a region drop early and probably more cluedrops to come.

So what do all have planned for Memorial Day? I’m probably going to skip the daily clue on Monday, since many will be out, but hopefully when we get back I can start figuring out this larger Scavengeroogle Hunt we’ve been brainstorming about…

[Edit: 10:11 PDT - This one is proving to be a bit tough so I’ll drop the region clue early: Idaho]

[Edit: 12:15 PDT - A hint: It’s not near Declo. ]

[Edit: 12:28 PDT - Another: It IS near Boise. ]

    I know I’m in the right area, but damned if I can find the image. I like the clue, but I don’t know if it pinpoints the area enough.

  2. Mike Z Says:

    I was already in Idaho before the region clue was dropped, but I can’t seem to find the thing!

  3. Ted Stickles Says:

    Same here, been in Idaho the entire time. I’m having trouble figuring out the clue. Maybe I’m missing something but it’s almost too vague to pinpoint, especially for a 13/15 image. Of course I’ll probably feel like an idiot after the solution’s posted and it ends up being “simple.”

  4. Mike Z Says:

    I’ve run out of time on this one. I have a job to do, you know. I didn’t find any Hershey’s Kisses, but I did find a few interesting shapes, some really cool looking land formations and a nice duck. The duck might actually be good enough for a future submission.

    Golux, Ted, Mike - Sorry, yes I had a feeling that the clue was not enough. Though, wait until you see what Jeremy was going to give you for the word clues…
