click to search using Google MapsIt’s Friday. Truly, TGIF… Anyhow, Steve M. sent in this really cool large writing find (nearly a month ago, egad) and I had been wanting to use it for a long time because as far as I know it hasn’t been found yet on the other google sightseeing sites. I could be wrong… and don’t you go looking in case I am! You’ll spoil your own “fun”. =)

Well, I didn’t use it until now because I was stumped as to what kind of clue to give, not to mention what exactly is it? It is 3 enormous letters spelling out “CTC”, hence the name of the clue (By the way… no, it does not have anything to do with the Boston Tea Party). It has a maple leaf on the top, so I guess that’ll tell you what country it’s in at least. But I still might need to give a region drop. The lettering is a bit faint on the contrast, but otherwise is visible quite far out at 9/15 to 10/15.

I am somewhat at a loss to give a clue. Steve M noted that he had difficulty coming up with a clue and I did too. After some searching on google, I think I know what it refers to now. Emphasize on “think”. After agonizing on a clue for some time, I am just going to give you:

“Colonel Thomas Gage”

I need to finish up some other stuff so I can’t dwell on the clue any longer: whether it’s easy or hard is outta my hands. I have a feeling it may rank a bit on the hard side. As always, expect clues. I have dreams of clue drops sometimes. Clues, clues, clues!

Happy Friday…

[Edit: 10:19 PDT - Region drop time: New Brunswick… and keep in mind that maple leaf. I’ll be out for a few hours so behave yerselves.]

[Edit: 12:02 PDT - A quick hint: don’t go looking in the place where Gage was governor of…]
