****runs in house,.. closes and locks all doors,..draws all curtains and blinds,...****
****takes phone off hook,...peeks outside for any suspicious looking 5's,....****


***and commences to dance and sing and run around rooms in underwear!***


Well, I am officially allowed to, and finally glad I can announce that,

I HAVE FOUND THE FIRST RING !!


YES, these Rings ARE REAL, and are Real AWSOME !
( and yes, there IS a WORD WITHIN ).
(I will be borrowing a cam and posting an image or two in the next day or two to show it off.)


***again peeking out the window for suspicious 5's***


I really need to thank the board admin and hunt admin for allowing this, for without them, none of this would be possible for any of us. Those sneaky guys also over at www.SportzTawk.com for hosting this stashed ring in their threads in the Billiards Room. My Mom & Dad, the Neighbors Dog, and my washing machine for supplying clean clothes now and then.

Last but by far not least, ALL the members of ATS. Without the members, several of the clue's would have been much much more difficult to solve. (If I could have solved them all without your help). And the hunt would not have been near as fun without many of you. For this reason, I will avidly reciprocate, as the hunt continues. (Sorry 5 this does not include you
)


This was quite a month for this hunt, as I'm sure you will all agree. These clues were not all that easy sometimes, and I suspect they are only going to get harder. Yes there is an interesting and a bit funny story on how it all went down, and am thinking about resurrecting my blog for this purpose.

I will tell you this,..when deep.access stated I was a winner, I was afraid to touch the mouse for fear of accidentally making it all go away. But I did, and it didnt.

And a phrase comes to mind over and over from Rare Earth,..

I just want to celebrate, yeah, yeah !!!
A ring 5 will NEVER see!

****sits down and rests from doing the Irish Jig and the Icky Shuffle at the same time****


I tell you this, it almost didnt happen for me. Seemed like everything was going wrong for awhile. My PC HD crashed, losing some hunt data I had stored, as well as taking me offline for a couple of days near the end of Phase I. Also the fact that I didnt know of the automated method of decoding the codes, and resorted to figuring it out on a pile of paper manually, like theMatrix did. (You should see the stack of printouts, post-it's, and hand scribbled notes on my desk.) I tried tracking so many directions and thoughts that I found myself suspecting EVERYTHING was a clue or related to the hunt.

A couple of times I had to just sit back and clear the brain from overload. A cold one now and then seemed appropriate too to keep me from banging my head on the keyboard too much.

***still smirkin' broadly***

Hey, great job, Smirkley! Congrats! Just don't forget us little people, you "captain of enlightenment!"

One question, though: did you get the mail in your underwear, or did you take your clothes off after going inside? Just curious behavior either way.

Good job smirkley!

Did I help you much with the blue balls?

That ring might be even nicer than 20,000 points!

Can I have the word as a consolation, like you got your 2,000?

(In jokes).

You know, I really dont remember now that you mention it. I had my ring on my finger also though.

I forget nobody of any size, and there are three more 'captains' out there somewhere waiting to be discovered still.

It is well worth more than the 20k points to me, and thanks for remembering.

Our first Captain of Enlightenment has been rewarded. Quite a pleasure considering the intelligence and pleasent nature of our first Captain I might add.

There is MUCH to be done however, much remains to be had, discovered and thwarted.

Who among you will be our next Captain of Enlightenment? Who among will win the day and hold the gold?

Interesting times within which we live to be sure.

Oh, ME ME ME ME ME!!!! I want to be a captain of enlightnment too!

Hey, Smirkley should get that as his member status! Forget being a scholar/fighter/writer - "Captain of Enlightenment" would be cool!

Sorry, just thought I'd bump it once again before calling it a day.
