Dodge Journey Search (East) LIVE updates – Day 1

September 23, 2011

I’ll be updating this page as information becomes available leading up to and during the Dodge Journey (East) search, officially starting at Saturday, 12 noon. You’ll find the latest at the top of this page.

Be safe. Be courteous. Buckle up and drive carefully. Remember, there can only be one winner. Enjoy the adventure and make some memories. Cheers and Best of luck!

>> Day 2 coverage continues here

Slideshow Clues: Expanded Route (approx 110 miles)

>> Full set of pictures (Source: Dodge’s Facebook page)

  • Ticonderoga Ferry ->
  • Orwell, VT ->
  • Brandon, VT ->
  • Killington, VT ->
  • West Bridgewater, VT ->
  • Woodstock, VT ->
  • White River Junction, VT ->
  • Lebanon, NH ->
  • 4A South, Near Enfield, NH

Notes: This is probably the best match for the final picture of a 4A south sign in the Journey slideshow.

Slideshow continues Sunday morning, 9am

375-mile clue

Solution: Schroon Lake, NY (Adirondack Marathon)

Note: We also see, on the bibs 87 (a reference to I-87 and 74, the road that runs east past Eagle Lake and to the Ti Ferry.

Apparently, this is the final online clue. The “final” clue is essentially the physical sign, already found.

25-mile radius? No.

Also, after the 375-mile clue is solved, we see:

Correction by Dodge on Twitter: When you solve the 5th clue vid it gets you within 375 miles of the Journey, not 25 as was written. More to come. Stay tuned.

Physical Clue, across Ti Ferry in VT

As reported earlier (bejones, 2:24pm), across the Ti Ferry into VT on 74, just before turning south on 73, a sign that reads:

This isnt the end
Its only the beginning
We cant wait to share
Where we went next
the journey is within 350 miles from here

Picture of the same (provide by Doreen Lyon, @jaredlyon’s Mom, on the hunt)

400-mile clue

Solution: Friends Lake, Chestertown, NY

425-mile clue

Solution: Lake George, NY (Queen of  American Lakes)

450-mile clue

Solution: Saratoga Springs, NY

500-mile clue

Solution: Albany, NY

Other clues:

Wild West Ranch, Lake George NY

Notes: Are the (missing) letters a clue?

Google street view to verify:

Eagle Lake, NY

Intersection – 74 and 73, across from Ferry, heading toward Mt Independence (south)

Google street view to verify:

From the other side, moving away from the ferry, approaching the intersection (note fish on pole):

Advanced clues (9/23, 10:00pm)

Picture #1 – Malta Drive In Theater, Malta, NY

>> Higher resolution version

Notes: The Dodge Journey is north bound (and the bikes are there, just blurred because of the Journey’s speed)

Could this be a reference to Paradox, NY? Paradox Lake? Conflicting directions as a Paradox? Pair of Docks?

    That is the state flag of New York flying behind the Journey (pictured with the bikes and family) and the sign says No running on the deck…maybe a boat or ferry boat?

        Just throwing out another thought about the beef jerkey Dodge mentioned in a reply on the YouTube discussion board: There are at least three beef jerkey companies in Vermont, located in Orleans, Swanton, and Richmond. None are close by the ferry, but I guess it depends on the radius.

    How are we able to determine the direction they are heading on the ferry? Are you using the flags on the boat?

    • Steven Barley permalink
      September 23, 2011 10:58 pm

      I used google street view from both ends to confirm which shot Tinker provided (from panoramio).

      • DPNJ12 permalink
        September 23, 2011 11:02 pm

        so you believe that the Dodge photo depicts the car traveling from NY to VT, or is that just the direction you believe the panoramio pic is from?

      • Steven Barley permalink
        September 23, 2011 11:10 pm

        Actually, I need to give that a bit of thought … may have rushed to judgement. We have two aspects to consider: 1) Landscape view; 2) Blue flags are on the same side (south) …

      • DPNJ12 permalink
        September 23, 2011 11:14 pm

        i think the landscape is the best way to try to figure out this direction

      • ShannonandTim permalink
        September 24, 2011 9:57 am

        @Steve – The flags are not on the ferry today. But using binoculars, we looked at the painted signs next to them. In the pic, the top skinny sign is at a slight slope compared to the one below it. These signs are on the northwest corner of the ferry. So based on that, they Journey is heading east, to VT. Lady pointing in direction of cruise boat. Maybe telling child “look” or that they will be riding on it soon? Still thinking this might be a jag to the right, and then retreat into VT. You would have to drive past the roadsigns to get to the parking lot for the cruise. No other clues so far have been in VT. We sit now and ponder. But I can tell you this, the ferry owner is going to make a killing too. And if anyone gets the chance, PJ’s has the best ribs in the country.

      • Steven Barley permalink
        September 24, 2011 10:32 am

        Always great getting reports from boots on the ground. Thanks for the update and agree they’re moving into VT … and I haven’t seen anyone tie the beef jerky reference to NY, but like you, esp with the Paradox reference, I tend to be on the fence (or between the pair of docs … LOL) Cheers!

    • MJA permalink
      September 24, 2011 6:20 am

      They are heading to Vt- the life preserver box and the signage on the guardrail match the photo with the Subaru wit Vt plates, and that photo also clearly shows the Vt signage. Notice the skipper house for ferry would be in the shot of the Journey were they to be headed to NY..

      • MJA permalink
        September 24, 2011 6:30 am

        There is also a large white box on the southeast corner of the ferry hanging on the guardrail that is absent on the northwest corner. There is no white box in the Journey photo. The NW corner has the ‘no running’ ignage, while the SE corner does not…

  21. Bigdizzle permalink
    September 23, 2011 11:11 pm

    hmm what to make of the whole beef jerky reference?

  22. September 23, 2011 11:13 pm

    September 23, 2011 11:14 pm

    i was trying to use the flags as reference too, but look at this picture (http://www.forttiferry.com/) it looks like the blue flags may not just be on one corner

    • Steven Barley permalink
      September 23, 2011 11:17 pm

      LOL. I’ve changed my mind & comment a couple of times. I have one shot with the blue flags on diagonal (which doesn’t help) and on the same side (which would). Switching to landscape …

      • DPNJ12 permalink
        September 23, 2011 11:25 pm

        any chance someone can dig up prevailing winds for this area?

        …so VT to NY?

    • Tinker permalink
      September 23, 2011 11:33 pm

      I think, though you all should probably run this theory through, that in the Dodge photo they are heading East. From what I can tell in the various identified-direction-photos (and what logic tells me) that the NY flag is on the NY side of the ferry and the VT flag on the VT side. So if the pulled onto the ferry from NY then the flag should be behind them. What do you think?

  24. Bigdizzle permalink
    September 23, 2011 11:15 pm

    geocaching.com

    I have an account and I am an avid geocacher. But there is no way to search for those pics on the site. Perhaps there is a clue IN a geocache… There are hundreds in the area.

  25. September 23, 2011 11:17 pm

    We are debating which way on the ferry they go WHEN in all aspects we know they hit the Vermont side of the ferry going east by the signs stating 3 cities in Vermont. Why are we 2nd guessing.

    • Steven Barley permalink
      September 23, 2011 11:20 pm

      Hi Ace and fair question. My take: 1) We have them driving west by eagle lake, NY (a contradiction); 2) because it is widely believed that the bike shot location was identified (and that it may have been the final location), they may have changed up things … so, direction may be relevant. For example, if they’re heading to NY, it would support a plan b. Cheers!

      • September 23, 2011 11:28 pm

        Adirondack makes a Mountain bike. My idea is the 1 clue is on the bike again BUT THE BIKE ITSELF Adirondack NOW I have 2 theories Your theory of Eagle Lake going back west on 74 to 9 and south There is Adirondacks. But dont like that 1 cause to much back track Number 2 Adirondacks Park South on Vermont side with a Dolph Pond off Dolph Pond Road is the view from video over water and into the park. JUST A THOUGHT. SOUTH 2 ways into the Park 22A on Vermont side and South on 22 on NY side

      • Nick permalink
        September 23, 2011 11:34 pm

        The ferry direction is easily determined. The New York flagged end of the ferry touches NY soil. The Vermont flagged end of the ferry touches Vermont soil. The Journey is facing away from the NY flag, therefore, they are headed toward Vermont.

      • Steven Barley permalink
        September 23, 2011 11:50 pm

        It is def an NY flag in the Journey shot.

      • Nick permalink
        September 23, 2011 11:47 pm

        Hello, DPNJ12. None of the photos in the link you provided disputes my assertion. NY flag on one end, VT flag on the other. None of the pics in the link provided show NY on opposite corners. Look a bit closer.

      • lmt permalink
        September 24, 2011 12:04 am

        1) If you look on this blog here:

        http://bikeformission.blogspot.com/

        This is from last year, and you can clearly see both ends of the ferry: on each end is an american flag, and a NY flag.

        2) There are no bikes in the Malta picture (going N) but in the TK bridge picture (going S) there is…

        3) Dodge stated that they sent those pictures to “various sites”. Has anyone found them anywhere else yet, except the geocaching site?

      • Tinker permalink
        September 24, 2011 12:14 am

        Those links you all provided are great! Look very closely. It is the American flag and NY flag on one end and American flag and VT on the other. Always on opposite sides.

      • Nick permalink
        September 24, 2011 12:18 am

        lmt, again, look closer. Yes they are both blue. Just like many other state’s flags are blue. But one is VT (red below the crest) and one is NY (white below the crest).

      • MJA permalink
        September 24, 2011 6:35 am

        Compare the other objects on the NW and SE corners of the ferry- the signs, the white box hanging over the guardrail. The jorney photo was shot on the NW corner of the ferry, suggesing the vehicle is facing East, headed for Vt..

  26. September 23, 2011 11:19 pm

    Would they have given the New Malta Drive IN pic as a layout to change the final destination as in miles Since the PJ BBQ is 2.5 miles from the Drive IN

    I think part of the ‘Paradox’ clue is that the clues are in paradox – you have to commit to going east or west to search and the ferry ride makes it very hard to change your mind. I also like the Paradox lake tie in.

  29. David Osborne permalink
    September 23, 2011 11:58 pm

    So the two clues are paradox and ferry docks.

    • Steven Barley permalink
      September 24, 2011 12:04 am

      Hi David. I would add just a bit to that. With the drive in theater, in close proximity to PJs barbecue, with a northbound direction. The same direction as it passes the Magic Forest (Uncle Sam). The paradox certainly connects with a number of observations in the east search: paradoxes in the commercial (perhaps), Paradox, NY. further west beyond Eagle Lake, NY. With the ferry, we don’t seem to gain too much 😦 Cheers!

  30. Tinker permalink
    September 24, 2011 12:05 am

    I’ve had a thought concerning,”‘Like being there,’ is not like being there,” that I thought of with the Midwest search (since we were out searching) and have read comments that seem to have relevance for the East search. I recognized OKC from the shot, I’ve been there a number of times, but I didn’t recognize the large black tower so it threw me off. I also couldn’t find the tower in the street view. Didn’t find out until we drove by that they were building a new tower downtown. It seems Dodge is sometimes using locations that you actually have to “be there” to confirm what’s real today.

  32. September 24, 2011 12:14 am

    I don’t think it matters which direction the ferry is going since the shot from the commercial is going into Vermont. There is no way to know which way they’re going even if you can determine the ferry’s direction. The fact that we have them so far west of the ferry and then going east presents the ultimate paradox. Pick one side, folks, and good luck.

    • Steven Barley permalink
      September 24, 2011 12:20 am

      Quite right. First the 2010 movie was called “Paradox” not the Paradox. So, we have the Journey going in three directions. That’s the Paradox.

  33. September 24, 2011 12:22 am

    Do you think the photo of them removing the bikes is Mount Independence and if so will they still leave the car there or go with a Plan B? (Seems like it would be a lot of extra work for them to come up with a Plan B at this point given their investment in the commercials they started making last year).

    • Steven Barley permalink
      September 24, 2011 12:26 am

      Hi Matt. I’d like to believe they have a built in contingency (the original shots show the paradox, i.e three different directions); the bike shot was wide, exposing it to discovery (and it’s been almost a week); and we’ve always seen the family exiting. Time will tell. Cheers!

    • Tinker permalink
      September 24, 2011 11:23 am

      I wonder if they are hiding two Journeys? The word is that there is “no need to redo the Midwest Journey search.” http://blogs.automotive.com/update-dodge-not-re-hiding-second-journey-ohp-releases-details-57707.html Maybe they are going to hide a Journey at both ends of the split-direction clues….

  34. September 24, 2011 12:24 am

    BTW- The film crew apparently told the press they had been in Albany NY before driving up to Saratoga Springs, this news article supports what you’ve already discovered: http://www.saratogian.com/articles/2011/08/30/news/doc4e5c53ba643e1756380159.txt?viewmode=fullstory

    I have a photo that will verify that they are heading toward VT. The sign next to the lifesaver circle is on the right of the circle. That one is on the cable side where the tug is. The other side, which is open, has the sign on the left side of the circle. If you’d like the photo, let me know

    The Dodge Journey is in Green Mountain National Forrest, Vermont… The other two were both found on the boarders of two states… California and Nevada (#1) and Oklahoma and Texas (#2).

    So based on the Malta, NY picture and the map showing the Green Mountain forrest off to the east and NY, VT & MA meeting at that location.

    GO GET IT!! I wish I was close to VT!!

    I have been following this thread rather religiously, and it is so much fun! However, the inconsistencies have been driving me crazy, such as the direction across the Twin Bridges and Lake view drive, Eagle Lake, NY. The direction seems as though it could be either way, as both N and S roads curve after the bridge ends and both have signs that match the photo. As far as Eagle Lake, NY I have looked on Google maps street view, and no matter how I look I do not see the same mountain on the south side as is shown in the street view on the images posted. Also it appears there is no where for grass to grow along the south side of the lake, and there are clearly grasses in the commercial. Plus, the fact that the bikes disappear in the Malta photo drives me nuts. I would love to hear your opinions!

      Hi Krystie and you’re absolutely right re: the inconsistencies, some might describe as a Paradox 😉 Just FYI, I believe the bikes are in the Malta shot (like the scene driving by Magic Forest, they’re going fast enough to create a blur … tough to see in a low-res still). Cheers!

    personally I think you all going on a wild goose chase up north. My bet is on a place called journeys end lake new york, its 42 miles from the world financial center in new york city. Although they were talking about beef jerky and all that, I think that is the scenic route. who knows, maybe theyll put it on a boat in the middle of the lake. It would be a nice twist. There are still kayaks in back of the journey. Maybe you have to kayak to it. LOL good luck alllllllllll

        Notice the NYS flag behind the Journey. This flag is not on the ferry. It must have been added for the shot. The Journey is definately pointed to VT (confirmed just now in person). Could it signify NY is “behind them”? Or could it be just a day trip excursion to the sight-seeing boat docked on the VT side along with the ferry? Remember, the family IS camping. But no camping equipment packed into the car. We have some idears (that “ideas” with a southern NY accent).

      • ShannonandTim permalink

    I”ve been following along this blog since the midwest hunt, and I wish good luck to everyone out there. I have a gut feeling that the car is in the Adirondacks, not Vermont. This is based on the photographs, the elevation of the photos, the trees, etc. I was up through the Adirondacks three weeks ago, visiting my kid who goes to school upstate. We will find out soon I guess. I look forward to helping out today. Good luck!

    I keep thinking it will be in one state, if for no other reason than it would cause a massive traffic jam at the ferry, and even more so, people with no patience. Either one could prove to be a nightmare for local law enforcement and/or locals, and I doubt Dodge would want bad publicity.

    • September 24, 2011 10:00 am

      agreed there are precious few crossings up there from VT to NY. Make the wrong decision, and your pretty much out of the running from the beginning.

      The definition of paradox on wikipedia: “A paradox is a seemingly true statement or group of statements that lead to a contradiction or a situation which seems to defy logic or intuition. Typically however, quoted paradoxical statements do not imply a real contradiction and the puzzling results can be rectified by demonstrating that one or more of the premises themselves are not really true, a play on words, faulty and/or cannot all be true together.”

      What clue looks to be true but really is not, but when combined all together makes it seem true?

      And the clues themselves have the Journey (literally) driving in all directions.

      • Michelle permalink

        Hi, Barbara,

        I have a theory on “What clue looks to be true but really is not, but when combined all together makes it seem true?” I don’t want to post anything until the search goes live and a couple of clues have been released, but I will post more then. Not trying to be coy, just don’t want to send anyone in the wrong direction if I’m off base. I will say that it leads me to think the Journey is not in the Mt. Independence area. But who knows? Damn, this is fun!

        BTW, I’m not in the chase, just obsessed like everyone else.

    The first two Journeys were hidden on very small, dead-end roads that looked like they went to private property. My advice would be to pick an area where you think it’s hidden, then search every small dirt road…..unless “no trespassing” signs are posted. Respect the local property owners.

        Yes, and both places were very obscure and out-of-the-way spots. Not places that have lots of visitors annually or that would be recognizable. Hadrian, Green Mtn.

    There is an area that I found days ago on the Northeast corner of Paradox Lake with two clearings divided by a stand of trees. It is also near a mountain bike trail head. If you look in that photo you can see him taking the bike off in an open area, but in the right hand side of the screen there is another clearing through the trees. I believe the shot of them taking the mountain bikes off of the Journey is from this location. Since it is almost contest time, I figured that I would finally share with the group. I think the Paradox reference ties to this puzzle and not to the differences in direction that Dodge seems to be using to confuse everyone. Again, I’m an armchair player like many others, or am I….that’s a paradox. Are all my posts really just red herrings, did I really figure out the efix data and the lat/long of where the picture was taken??? LOL!

    I don’t think anyone has mentioned that the very 1st scene in the original video is at Eagle lake = and they are going east? The order in the 1st video is:

    1) eastbound at Eagle lake
    2) vermont sign
    3) new york bridge
    4) uncle sam going north on 9

    Does this point to a different start point, maybe paradox lake? They go down to NY city, then back up north. Maybe they end where theey started, paradox lake? Wouldn’t that be a hoot!

    Hi Steve,

    Yes, I see the car is blurry too. But, the spot above it is blurred at the same rate, if you will. Now, in the video, we can see the two bike shadows following the car’s roof line. So, either they are photochopped out or the camera resolution is not great enough to pick them up at speed.

    I get the feeling that the intersection at the end of the video is in the northern reaches of Vermont or New York…I know the guy was wearing an I ❤ NY shirt, but I've gone through northern Vermont to Canada before and the mountains kind of stop, leaving large grassy plains. That's what the intersection reminds me of. It seems that shot would be looking south-ish.

    well the 375 mi clue is going to be somewhere around Ticonderoga, either Eagle Lake or Mt. Indy. But that still leaves a 375 mi search area….. they could seriously be making the 100 mi and 75 mi and 25 mi commercials right now and they could all be in West Virginia with a horse theme for all we know! It could be a big screw U from Dodge like yep you thought u nailed it so we moved it 375 mi from the “know final destination”

    Hey Guys, this page was a HUGE help for me on the midwest trip even though it didn’t work out in my favor. Wish I could be out searching myself on this one, but MO to VT is a little out of the way for me.
    Anyway, I was thinking, with the engine being a “3.6L VVT”, might that mean it could be in a town or area in Vermont that starts with a V? Sort of like the 283hp lead to highway 283 in OK?

    Including a 32 mile round trip (side trip) from Ticonderoga to Paradox Lake NY (just west of Eagle Lake), that makes it very close to 125 miles from Albany all the way to Mount Independence.

    500 – 375 = 125.

    They must be releasing more radius clues after #5.

    Maybe 10 in total this time?

    • G. Carter permalink
      September 24, 2011 1:44 pm

      I was wondering if we are just going to get the 5 clues or if there could be 10 or 15 altogether. I’m trying to read the source code behind the YouTube site to see if that window scrolls. I can see where it invokes google maps and then the companion ad, but this script is complicated, and it turns out I can’t figure it out.

      Here’s another paradox: To get people to explore the world wide world, Dodge left three Journeys somewhere out there for you to find. You find one, you can have one. (WWW versus real-world)

    The reason it’s a 500 mile clue is because in the midwest search, they said that the journey could make it 500 miles on a tank of gas. I wouldn’t read anything more into it than that. They are sightseeing for a day, then headed somewhere. 😀
    Did someone find the neighborhood that the beginning shot was taken from?

    September 24, 2011 1:53 pm

    I am now thinking there might be as many as 15 MORE radius clues “in the can” and ready to be released.

    If they stick to the minus 25 miles each time (or less), which makes sense because they will not go back to 50 at this point, they’ll need appx. 15 more to get you down to the 5 mile mark.

    I would think they’ll need to have at least the 25 mile radius clue ready to present at some point if the search goes on longer than they expect. They’ll need to hone people in to bring it to conclusion at some point in the game. Same is true for the 5 mile clue (or, perhaps they’ll leave this one sitting out at 10).

    The point is, this could go on well into tonight and then, for safety reasons, they’ll probably not give out the remainder of the radius clues until Sunday morning.

    That’s how I would do it, anyway. A contingency master plan that covers a potential two-day “mega-hunt”. It’s setting up this way.

    What if it is a 500 mile round trip on one tank of gas and the family heads back home and it is in a barn outside Albany… they did the trip for a day on a single tank of gas and made it back to grama’s farm at the end of the day outside Albany… Or something along those lines

  204. David permalink
    September 24, 2011 2:02 pm

    Don’t rule this out:

    Heading south at TK Bridge might indicate that the family is heading back home to Albany after their day/weekend trip is over.

    I can see the side trip to Paradox Lake making sense but there is no logical reason for the vehicle to be headed south over that bridge unless they are making their way home.

    Can’t explain why they leave from a row of townhouses and it ends up in a barn in relation to this theory, but that’s what we have Steven for. To explain the inexplicable. 🙂

    • Nick C permalink
      September 24, 2011 2:14 pm

      Steve what do you think of our theory? I think a barn so no one can spot it from the air or a helicopter, and like I said maybe they went to gramma’s house at end of the day which is a horse ranch outside Albany???

      • Steven Barley permalink
        September 24, 2011 2:24 pm

        I agree about the barn. With the west search, someone saw enough to know, just about, where it was … (after about 16 hours a detective work) But, so far the radius searches have just been as the crow flies, moving along or progressing along a know route (never extending beyond 20 miles). We do suspect they’re throwing more twists at us, the different directions, Paradox(es), etc. (And I think the Albany southbound shot could be a video edit error, like Sayre OK) Can’t rule anything out but I’d still have to go with somewhere with 20 or so miles of either Ticonderoga and Mt Independence. If they double-backed, that would be especially evil (even thought about them looping towards Green Mountain Nat forest area to be somewhat consistent with the last tow) … but for either of those southbound scenarios, a lot of people wouldn’t be very happy.

    Must have been typing while you were doing the same. Great minds ……

    Probably a two-day family trip though, with all the side routes, covering 500 miles. Sleep over in southern VT (Green Mountain area) and then back home on Sunday afternoon.

    This fits with my earlier conjecture that the clues will “drag out” over a two-day period.

    500 mile round trip might even mean a journey into New Hampshire for the night before returning to Albany.

    You’d have to go that far east, really, to tally 500 miles total.

    Or, they cross back over into NY on a ferry in mid- VT and explore the Adirondacks before returning back to Albany area. Poor kids. That’s a lot of time to be sequestered in the back seat.

    But we’ll probably be told how plush those accommodations are in a Dodge Journey in a future radius clue!

    I’m guessing the barn is pretty big. The live shot and video with jet ski look like different parts of the barn. Also, with this much secrecy they might want to store all vehicles and equipment inside since there was so much discussion about people renting planes or helos. You can hear the sliding barn door on a track when he comes in and out of the video, which is probably just another section of the barn. Just used efixtool on the third video and it had conflicting dates either May 11th or it was just shot yesterday at 1:28:42 in the afternoon. My guess is that some of the shots were done back in May, but because they had contingency plans, they just shot the barn with jet ski video yesterday and edited that portion in to prepare for the live game today. Editing was done on an Apple PC according to the metadata.

    Added 400-mile clue with solution: Chestertown, NY (Friends Lake) – Looks like they’re not continuing along route 9 and Lake George to Ticonderoga. Rather, they should move farther north, then take 74 east towards Eagle Lake and to Ticonderoga (and VT).

    Understood, Jenni, but earlier in the post we were examining the possibility of a round trip based on the fact that the Journey is heading south back over the TK Bridge.

    Circles could continually adjust and shrink throughout the trip, leading you back to the Albany area once inside 50 miles.

    Conjectures are based primarily on the idea that the vehicle can travel 500 miles on a tank of gas (announced in the Mid-west search) and the TK Bridge anomaly.

    It would put a fitting end to the entire contest if the final family made it home (perhaps to a nearby relative’s place) in a rural location.

    Enough conjecture. Bring on the facts!

    So we passed the intersection for 73 in VT right past the ferry off point. There was a sign on the side of the road from Dodge that said,

    “This isnt the End
    Its only the beginning
    We cant wait to share
    Where we went next
    the journey is within 350 miles from here”

    1. I will preface this with saying I am actually one of the ones in Vermont. However 2. Can you imagine the pandemonium that will ensue if/when people drive to the Dodge/Journey intersection, NH or somewhere FAR east only to have the “round trip” theory pan out? Maybe it’s the nerd in me but I get the mental picture of the Lord in Braveheart/the Orcs in LOTR/ when they get that look of TOTAL shock when he realizes he advanced too deep into the “good guys” ranks and now they’re royally screwed to make a retreat lol. Yea can you tell I got 2.5 hours of sleep last night? Lastly (and more importantly) please please please take this for what it is, it could be completely unreliable. But I’m sitting in a coffee shop in Middlebury right now and there’s a bunch of college kids with me. One of the employees and I were shooting the breeze (me not telling him why I was there only that I was from out of town) then he offers up that there’s been a lot of tourists around this way looking for a car. He said he hopes the car is nearby cause around 4:30 this morning (when he was on his way in for his shift) a large caravan of a f-150 carrying a 30ish foot unmarked trailer flanked by two black durangos came through heading north on 7 and took the exit to 125 east. AGAIN, this could just be a college kid thinking he can get a laugh at my expense, but I thought I’d share this with the forum as imo we’re all in this together 😉

      • Steven Barley permalink
        September 24, 2011 4:22 pm

        I agree David but I think they were trying to control pace by 1) release each clue on the hour vs unlocking as they’re solved; 2) keeping all options open with the (very) large radius. However, we still have a pretty predictable progression, from Schroon Lake, east along 74, past Eagle Lake, then to the Ti Ferry, into VT, and then to ?

  283. NJ Deb permalink

      Hi Nick. It’s possible but in addition to the welcome to VT shot we had, they gave us the turn south on 74 (after the ferry) to 73. So, we would have two clues pointing in the wrong direction … but, you can’t rule it out 😦

  289. September 24, 2011 4:25 pm

    ok so Schroon Lake is where they run the marathon….. paradox lake is near there….. but also after you solve the 5th clue it says this is only the beginning….we can’t wait to show you where we go next…..So do ya’ll think the next clues will be in the twitter #journeysearch feed…. the did say on the chalkboard earlier that they would share photos of their trip tonight…..

      Perhaps. We will probably see pictures along the route we already know (like the two advanced shots they gave us) then continue to add a few more that do not extend beyond where “on location” hunters are … probably going as far as the Ti Ferry (we already have that)

    So, Steven, do you believe, then, that it will indeed be found within a 25 mile radius of Schroon Lake?

    How does this fit in with the “it’s only the beginning” claim, in your opinion?

    Would seem like a major faux pas on their part if it was a mistake:

    faux pas – A SOCIAL blunder. 🙂

    • Steven Barley permalink
      September 24, 2011 4:59 pm

      Hi David. Yes. They’ve been pretty consistent on that … they give us route (and don’t add too much with the radius clues) and we’ve been left no more than 20-miles from the final location (but that’s still a lot of ground to cover, esp in area like NY/VT) I think by stopping at 25-miles, they want to more fully engage the “boots on the ground” – a new beginning for them, new type of clues (physical), not online, in the real world

      I’m hoping some of our community, who are on location, continue to send in updates. I’ve been in touch with about 20 or so, but they’ve gone quiet … and I fully understand why 😉

  308. September 24, 2011 4:54 pm

    • Nikki jones permalink
      September 24, 2011 5:10 pm

      It’s definitely past that because they get on the Ferry heading East on 74. Then they take a right onto 73…I believe the barn is in the background.

  315. Nan permalink
    September 24, 2011 5:08 pm

    I took a photo of the car at 1:30 and now looking at the ‘live’ at 5 PM, there is no change in the reflection in the headlight so I think that is interior lighting. The only change is the ‘windows on the bumper’ that are growing dimmer as night falls up there.
    Also my guess is that it is a packing house for apples,etc and not a animal/hay barn unless it is a ‘museum exhibit’, just too clean. Hay is a distraction…maybe black box is more of a clue…

        That would be a fitting, final location 😀 And North of Ticonderoga, along route 9, not east or west along 74 – but that means they gave us several shots related to VT as misdirection (video: VT side of ferry, video: 74/73 intersection, turning south; picture: on ferry, heading to VT) Regardless of the outcome, that’s a cool find.

        I think the 25 v 375, change to the ground game is starting to confirm a plan b 😉 However, I do like them extending this (to tomorrow). It was kind of silly to see the Midwest clues last Sunday, during the games, when it had been found. However, for those in the physical hunt, they have to make plans for the night and be prepared for a new hunt tomorrow.

    For the record, it does say within 375 vs. within 25. Since the final video clue said the 26.2 miles (obviously a reference to a marathon), that still fits within those parameters. Also, Steven, you should start a hangout or huddle on G+ to keep up with this lol.

    I’m looking forward to the slideshow.

    Part of me is wondering if the “this isn’t the ending, this is only the beginning” paradox is actually referring to the ordering of the clues. Maybe that sign in Vermont was the beginning of the Journey’s trip en route to Albany (and as it traveled to Albany, went through the video clues in reverse order)?

    That would be incredibly deceptive, but fit the paradox. It would also extend the search since a lot of people were already up in the Vermont area last night.

    Regarding the missing “C” – Adirondak Loj at Heart Lake? Check these driving directions out – Take the Adirondack Northway (I-87) to Exit 30. Turn left on Route 73 toward Keene and Lake Placid, continue on Route 73 for 26.5 miles. Turn left on Adirondack Loj Road (High Peaks Trailhead sign). It is five miles to the Loj. 26.5 miles referenced in the marathon clue. ??

        350 miles from 73/74 has me…

        it’s only 300 from that intersection to NYC….

  392. September 24, 2011 7:02 pm

    Been in this area all day. Definitely drove 73 to 30, but then turned north onto 30 (passed the church). That was at 1215 or so after first clue. I got lost trying to backtrack to the ferry. I also ended up turning left onto 73 from 74 missing the sign (but I noticed people near the pole – didn’t think anything of it)… Hoping its turning toward my current stakeout.

    If that’s the final picture, it’s downtown Brandon, right side of the road, just before the church tower that’s on the left. Hard to see the highway signs in Street View.

    If that’s where it is, someone should be there shortly.

    • Mostly Crazy permalink
      September 24, 2011 7:13 pm

      I agree with David. I think I matched the house at approximately 20 Conant Square, Brandon, VT. Go to street view and move up the hill to the right away from the back of the truck.

  396. September 24, 2011 7:09 pm

    OK, so I was trying to figure out is the letters on the Wild West sign mean anything & I noticed there are different letters missing on the other side of the sign, but I can’t make them out… can someone get a high res still from the video?

    If it actually is 500 miles from albany, and they didnt just change the distances to throw people off from vt, its probably northern maine on the coast. The guy in the live feed is prob sailing on the atlantic.

  399. September 24, 2011 7:19 pm

    i think that guy was right earlier about the cafe waiter in middlebury…. he said they went 7 north to 125

  400. September 24, 2011 7:19 pm

    45 Conant Square, Brandon, VT is where the 7 & 73 sign is. If you look around the sign area you can see the fence.

    • Mostly Crazy permalink
      September 24, 2011 7:22 pm

      That’s just the address that Google maps tries to associate the view with. 45 is on the wrong side of the street. If you type in 20, then go to street view, it puts the marker on the house. Try this and confirm if this is the house that you think it matches, too. Thanks.

    September 24, 2011 7:34 pm

    This is turning out to be much more of a challenge than the other two. I was watching on Sept. 10th when the first Journey went live at 9am California time, and I tuned in again just in time to see the winners drive away in the car. They found it about 4 pm California time….so the West search lasted 8 hours. Everyone keeps saying it lasted 16 hours, but the 16 hours is from the time the winners first saw the commercial on TV Friday night, until they found it on Sat. afternoon. See http://www.foxreno.com/11at11/29268067/detail.html
    The “live” search on 9/10 only lasted 8 hours. And the Second Journey search, on 9/17, lasted about 5 hours. So this one is definitely the hardest!

    • Ben permalink
      September 24, 2011 7:41 pm

      it’s not harder… they are just intentionally dragging these new clues out longer than the first 2, because we figured it out before the damn thing even went live….

        Not yet.

        Not if it’s 500 miles round trip.

        250 puts them comfortably in NH for the night. Perhaps even ME.

        This family is putting the journ in sojourners. Mark my words.

    I’m happy as long as they don’t stop at the historcal park in Woodstock. Researched that place for too long last week until I found out that they had an event today. Then I started wondering if the noise we kept hearing was the saw display.

    This could be far fetched, but…

    I bet we’re on our way to White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire. It’s a large area with a lot of places to look. Judging from where we are in the slideshow, Bridgeport, New Hampshire is on the way. There also happens to be an Woodstock and (my favorite) Albany right next to the forest.

    If it is a working farm/barn, it might explain there being no sound. The horses might now be in for the evening.

    According to Google Maps, exit 19 is 2 hrs and 30 mins from the ferry and it’s taken them 2.5 hrs to go thru the slideshow. I don;t think your really supposed to “Guess EXACTLY” where it is, I bet they lead you to its’ shiny red 4 door yumminess.

    Clearly…this is a very poor plan ‘C’,,,most likely contrived by the crew a couple of days ago. There’s no way they could have filmed anything new…but driving around and tking pictures, that would be no problem and not noticed by anyone. At this point following the slide show, one town at a time, is ridonkulous. The video clues were not connected at all to this search. The fun part was watching the video and deciphering those clues…not watching a crappy slideshow and figuring out which way they go based on road signs…really!!?..any 5 year old can do that!
