Jo, after playing around with the image, color, exposure, bumping up to HDR effect, etc... only thing I could say with any degree of certainty was that I thought I could make out "Susana Pass" middle top. Where are all the Pshop wizards when you need 'em... my system is too slow to save it, or I would have posted it here. But I'll try to go back to it again.
That's what I was wondering. I was going to look over this thread again, when the news broke that Davy Jones had died, and that event had some impact here locally, as he had a farm near Williamsport, and had played in Wilkes-Barre just two years ago. I didn't have a chance to look this over, but who knows, maybe we missed something.
hey, that's BONUS points for using a iaap registered Charity® game piece, right?

I remember when you were leaving for the quest, 65IF. I dropped you a note concerning taking with you survival supplies, as we were all concerned for your safety.
Turned out all you had to do was waddle over and grab the suitcase, right?
Look at that record company logo.
"Packman with a "k".
My waddling days ended in mid-2007.
Before February 2007, I was inclined to pretty much eat and drink whatever I wanted -- then in February of that year, diabetes struck, and I had to lose the gut that I had been carrying around or face premature death/disability.
I wasn't exactly a triathlete in late March 2008 -- sheesh, almost four years ago! -- nor am I one today, but I could/can maneuver a lot better without the extra 25-30 pounds that I managed to chase away in 2007. What's that, the equivalent of two bowling balls?
So I could move around all right -- no waddling necessary. I probably wouldn't have undertaken the great phoney chase in my waddling days.
Yes, I appreciated the concern for my safety, and I remember the advice about the emergency supplies, but I had my cell phone and this wasn't an isolated area -- cars passing by on the road and a number of residences overlooking the area. You can see this on the RA videos.
I wasn't seriously worried about hunger or thirst -- as I said at the time though, if I'd heard a single hiss or rattle, I'd have gotten out of Dodge. Snakes were my biggest worry.
The briefcase wasn't that easy to find though -- from RA 101 I could determine the general area but not the exact location so there was some hit-and-miss searching over a fairly wide area.
Again, not something that I would have undertaken in my "waddling" era.
And of course, after almost four years, I still have a 3-word request that I would like to deliver to Iamaphoney:
"You didn't LISTEN, St. Paul. St. PAUL. You didn't LISTEN St. Paul. You didn't LISTEN, St. Paul..."
On a similar vein, if you google the postcode SA48 8RL it comes up with Cilcennin, Ceredigion in Wales. Coincidentally, I am sure, also in Ceredigion is a ramblers trail called 'Mal Evans Way'.
Mal Evans Way takes you from a place called Borth to Devils Bridge. According to Wikipedia 'The bridge is unusual in that three separate bridges are coexistent, each one built upon the previous bridge'
Also, 'According to the legend the original bridge was built by the Devil, as it was too difficult for mortals to build. The agreement stipulated that the Devil would build the bridge in return for the soul of the first life to cross the bridge. The Devil built the bridge but was tricked by an old woman who threw bread onto the bridge. Her dog crossed the bridge for the bread, thus becoming the first life to cross the new bridge.'
Finally, 'The bridge is at a point where the River Mynach drops 90 metres (300 ft) in 5 steps down a steep and narrow ravine before it meets the River Rheidol. The set of stone steps leading down to the lowest bridge at the waterfall are known as Jacob's Ladder.'
Jacobs Ladder is inspired by the original Bible tale from Genesis in which Jacob had a vision of a ladder reaching to heaven
Jacobs Ladder was a song recorded by Doris Troy and released on Apple records.
Aleister Crowley wrote a poem called ‘the ladder’. The poem quotes the Bible from Psalm 24:7 and Luke 15:18. It contains the line, "O may the Four avail me." It contains another line that says, "Dire chaos; see! these new-fledged wings."
Originally Denny Laine of Wings was commissioned to write six songs for the soundtrack of The Magic Christian.
