I wish that I could post the official rules, etc. but for some reason I can't copy & paste from their site. I wonder if it's because I have dial-up? lol

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! Smilie

Clue #1 - Get rooted.
If you can find the tallest giant in the land, you'll find that the million will lie to the East.
Answer #1- Hyperion, Redwood tree, Redwood National Forest, California

Clue #2 - Where the West expands.
The million will lie somewhere to the west of a monumental gateway to the West. The famous landmark is represented in this equation.

y = A (cosh X over L C -1)

x = L over C [cosh-1(1+y over A)]

Where, A = fc over Qb over Qt -1 = 68.7672

C = Cosh -1 Qb over Qt = 3.0022
Answer #2 - The Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri. So, that puts the million East of Hyperion and West of the Gateway Arch.

Clue #3 Kick back in a peaceful place.
If you want a chance to claim the million, you'll have to head South of the first shared international, national park of its kind.

Answer #3 Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park in West Glacier, MT.

CLUE #4 - One Rare Critter -
This once endangered southwestern isopod is naturally found in only one thermal spring and shares its name with the county it lives in. Like this animal, the million will be found in only one spot. And to find it, you'll have to look further North.
ANSWER #4 - North of Sedillo Spring in Socorro County in New Mexico.

I believe, so far, that the answer to this week's Big Dig clue is the Giant Redwood trees in California.

In all honesty, this new contest seems to be much like the Outwit the West contest from a few years ago but BETTER as it has the daily instant win! Smilie

45K already? WOW! AWESOME! Nothing at all wrong with $1,000,000! lol Smilie

Sadly though, Tazula (myself), CaseysFather (landlord) and ChefKlause (ex) all failed on the daily dig. Bummer. Always tomorrow? lol Smilie

We were hoping for either the $100 or the Jeep! Smilie

I thought the answer was Hyperion - a giant redwood - that's what I entered.
it's 379.1 feet tall, besting the previous record holder, the 370.5-foot-tall Stratosphere Giant.
