Dodge Journey Search (East) LIVE updates – Day 2

September 25, 2011

I’ll be updating this page as information becomes available for the continuation of the Dodge Journey (East) search starting Sunday morning at 9am.

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!

Physical Clues (in World Wide World)

Final location of the Dodge Journey (East):

16 Donut Point Ln.
Tenants Harbor, ME 04860

Final clue: Kenniston Realty in Rockland, ME

Message from phone call (paraphrased, courtesy of Spencer):

Good job, there will be no more clues.  You are within 15 miles of the Journey.

Main Street Prison Showroom -> Angeliques (Antiques) Thomaston, ME

(courtesy of Tobias)

Message from phone call (paraphrased, courtesy of Spencer):

Nice work. Be careful who share this number with. 99% of the people that are hoping to find the Journey, think they can find it from their easy chair. So, don’t undo all own your hard work.

The lands you will be traveling to will have many beautiful properties where you would like to park your Journey.  Look under the first rock.  One will stand out.  If you see it, give the owner a call.

Solution: Continue traveling north along Rte 1 to Rockland, ME and find Kenniston Realty.

Discussion: “The first (rock)” may be a reference to The First, a bank in Rockland along Rte 1, but before Kenniston Realty. This may have confirmed the direction. As this clue was paraphrased, it may have, in fact, been worded as “Look beyond the first rock.”

Red’s Eats at Wiscasset, ME -> Sign Store on Water Street for a clue in the window:

Message from phone call:

Nice work. First things first. Be careful who share this number with. 99% of the people that are hoping to find the Journey, think they can find it from their easy chair. So, don’t undo all own your hard work.

Blend in with the locals as you head north … check out some woodworking made by hard labor.

Or Better yet. We hear antiquing is huge around here, so why not do some window shopping. There’s one in particular that’s named after the owner whose name also rhymes with what she sells. In the window, you’ll find what you’re looking for.

Solution: Travel further north along RTE 1 to Thomaston, ME and Main Street Prison Showroom, then Angeliques (Antiques)

LIVE Feed Clues

  • The Dodge “guy” hangs a ME life preserver

Final Clue: Call 207-420-8706 (BLOg, coincidence? maybe. maybe not.)

Message: Congratulations on getting this far but we can’t hold your hand for ever. This will be the last clue you’ll be able to get online. The rest will all require you get out into the real world. Head north and stop when you see the red seats. A few doors north from there, look for a sign.

    On 4a now. Hoping they take this thing all the way south until it connect to 11. 4A is super long and mostly residential and private roads with no other outlet than taking it all the way to 11.

    Steve – Nice detective work. Do you think I’m right in thinking there are still some 265 miles of travel before the final destination? Everyone was looking for a barn in Enfield last night, but I wonder if the journey isn’t even close to over.

        Well, we decided to rejoin. It was too depressing to think our memory of the search would end with us getting home so late last night–defeated and miserable. So, count us in again, although we lost a lot of time this morning.

      September 25, 2011 9:11 am

      Hi Bob. I guess we can’t rule anything out. I also hoping they give us a better slide or it will switch to a … you have to be there to match up the road, terrain, etc as the guide to the finish. Note: they have not showed us any real landmarks yet, i.e. a road sign or building. Cheers!

    Had been on this race. However Dodge has turned this into a horrible game doing an awful job, showing really poor photos of places the journey has not been too. In sunapee, and actually going enjoy my day instead of waste it.

      September 25, 2011 7:01 pm

      That would have been so much more fitting than the actual location. If there had been a clue referring to ” from sea to shining sea”, it might have made some sense. I wish they would have done alot more educational/historical places instead of street signs. the first two ended up in national parks so I think they could have done a much better job.

    Hominy Pot

    In the vicinity of this marker, during the last quarter of the 18th century, were built the first homes and the original schoolhouse of New London. Along this brook, developed by several men at different times, were a saw mill, a grist mill, a carding and cloth-dressing mill, a hat factory, and a shingle mill. — all powered by falling water. This industrial area has been variously called “Minot’s Square,” Harvey’s Mills,” “Trussell’s Mills,” and most lastingly, “Hominy Pot.”

    THIS MARKER ERECTED BY THE TOWN OF NEW LONDON AUGUST 1974

    In the vicinity of this marker, during the last quarter of the 18th century, were built the first homes and the original schoolhouse of New London. Along this brook, developed by several men at different times, were a saw mill, a grist mill, a carding and cloth-dressing mill, a hat factory, and a shingle mill. — all powered by falling water. This industrial area has been variously called “Minot’s Square,” Harvey’s Mills,” “Trussell’s Mills,” and most lastingly, “Hominy Pot.”

    I was one of the many people who went out on this search yesterday thinking it would actually be somewhere near the final clue, in the Schroon Lake/Paradox area. drove about 5 hours from NYC in the afternoon after the final 375 mile clue was given out. by the time I got to around the area, night had already fallen. unfortunately, on top of that, I forgot my laptop charger and my laptop was dying, so had to find a 24 hour Walmart and hopefully find a charger that worked for my laptop. unfortunately the one I found didn’t carry one. I had been tethering my phone to my laptop to keep on top of the latest information from the Youtube page and this blog.

    long story short, as soon as we saw that this was going into New Hampshire, while I was busy getting lost in Ticonderoga around 9-10pm, I pretty much gave up. made that long trek back to NYC and got home in the middle of the night. I have to say though, it was a fun ‘journey’ either way, this is something I won’t be forgetting for a while. to think that I had a chance of finding this once I got to the general area was pretty exciting.

    That call sign is on the Time and Temperature building in Portland Me. It is for winter parking regulations. You are supposed to call and find out if you are allowed to park on the street.

Steve has a good point: Why 2 pics, and why the middle of the biggest city in ME where there are no barns? Maybe they have a “staged” barn set up in a parking lot nearby?

    Just a thought related to the FB pics. Although I’m puzzled why they would have taken two shots of the same landmark (CALL sign), they album could have just published prematurely, e.g. instead of loading a few more pictures, they pushed the wrong button. Hard to believe that Portland (inside a large city) would be the stopping point, while we hold for additional clues.

    They obviously care not about those who have to make a return trip to NY or VT or anywhere else.

    They have their own agenda now, and it is to approximate the 500 mile mark or reach the furthest point possible w/o crossing into Canadian territory.

    Those who drop off this Trail of Tears are of no consequence to Dodge. They are after the larger internet audience (i.e., us) who outnumber the boots many fold.

    This may well backfire on them, however.

    • Steven Barley permalink
      September 25, 2011 10:57 am

      I agree with you David. If on one hand, everyone knew well in advance that they would actually be traveling along a route, discovering it as it unfolds (vs figuring out clues and getting close to a final destination), then you could choose and plan accordingly. I do like the notion of really exploring the World Wide World (execution hasn’t be perfect though) and they are getting more mileage out of this one (it IS a marketing campaign) … but they are also missing the practical aspects for the boots on the ground. If this concludes around, let’s say 4 or 5pm tonight, it’s a long journey back (no pun intended).

  203. September 25, 2011 10:52 am

    I think Dodge wants their “its stil there” commercials during football today to be accurate this week. Hence, the long, drawn out aspect of this search.

    My biggest fear is that all the “work” we did yesterday was absolutely for nothing and Dodge played out the NY/VT scenario just to appease people who came to the area. They gave them their search and used a slide show to bridge to a totally new game (new day, new clues) beginning with a 200 or 300 mile clue noonish beginning in ME. I hope I’m wrong.

      This new game does address some of the criticism from the last two … so much online detective work for the search engine of the real world, no exploring the world wide world, just a radius of about 20 miles from a predicted end point. For those that saddled up, and went with the change up, I have to take my hat off.

      To the folks who said Dodge punished us for figuring out the plan ahead of time…

      Yup – exactly! They punished us but good.

      I wasted an entire day and a couple tanks of gas driving all over the NY/VT ferry area… where the journey WOULD have been if the armchair sleuths didn’t figure out the final destination 5 days before the contest ended.

      It was fun riding around wasting gas and trying to get a wifi signal strong enough to open these mile long websites and hidef videos… but… I am a little PO’ed that they moved the journey all the way to freakin eastern Maine!

      I dunno if I should be thanking steve for keeping up with the journeys journey or mad at him for being a big part of the reason it ended up in far Eastern Maine instead of NY.

      Here’s my pics from my limited search in VT/NY.

    @KaaDeg: The building, being one of Portland’s tallest, can be seen for many miles around. Many Portlanders depend on the Time and Temperature sign, as it has become a popular landmark on the skyline. Over the years, different sponsors have had messages flashing from the sign, including Portland Savings Bank, WMTW-TV, and most recently, The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein (with the message “CALL” “JOE”). Also, when there is a snowstorm, the words “PARK” and “BAN” flash to remind people not to park on the street during snow removal.

      Not OCD, per se, just conscious that a qazillion viewers are scrutinizing his every move. Would you want to eat in front of that camera? Not me. He does seem a little nervous about the chickens though. Being from LA, he might not know that chickens don’t attack you when you eat lobster.

    Dodge has really messed this up. Both of the prior searches stayed in the same state. Going as far as Maine appears to be a reaction by Dodge to the online sleuths who figured out many of their clues. The 5 slickly made commercials are a far cry from these random pictures they are using. They could have hidden the car somewhere else in NY or Vt. Still don’t understand the 25 back to 375 thing.

    It could all be a set up. This is what they have shown us. As soon as you think you are closing in, they sent you running in the other directiion. Will they send you another 350 miles when you find that sign in Maine? I hear the planes pretty constantly, perhaps near an airport? or are they the sounds of boats going by?

    As has been pointed out, there are a number of places to pick up Lobster rolls on the main trek. Red’s is very well known however.

    North from Red’s from there would be Water street, you have (from what I can tell: Wiscasset Old General Store, 49 Water Street, 207-882-6622 – I did call to confirm that they were next door)

    After that: Water Street Antiques: 207-882-9700 – no answer.

      I’m right there with you, Barry. I flew into ME yesterday, drove a gazillion miles, flew out this morning on 3 hours sleep and still had fun.

      I would have been a lot more disappointed if they hadn’t switched things up.

      I also think the live feed dramatics are brilliant. Sort of an “un-subservient chicken” digital event.

      Now that I’m back to being a digital voyeur, I especially like the fact that they’re playing with real clues on the ground. Anybody who made the drive from VT or NY really deserves the advantage.

        I think the chickens are so they don’t have to have the timer to show that it’s a live feed…And it’s probably not truly “live.” I bet there’s a 10 minute delay – since that’s the amount the timer was “off” last night when they set it up.

    Journey’s End Marina, 120 Tillson Ave., Rockland, Maine, has buildings on the docks (pair of docks?). As we’ve said before, it could be a fake barn as a prop. Maybe that’s part of the paradox.

Google street view (near there, on the water, a little shack (red sign) and red seats?? http://maps.google.com/maps?oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=Portland+Lobster+Co&fb=1&gl=us&hq=Portland+Lobster+Co&hnear=Portland+Lobster+Co&cid=0,0,14412865014580894912&ei=ZGp_TojOH4r10gG08ZHoDw&sa=X&oi=local_result&ct=image&ved=0CAQQ_BI

    ok i need coffee, made a type wicasset is before rockland, taking the route from albany to rockland it is only 430 some miles give or take a few.

    i have a feeling that are messing with us, as i recall on the last leg we drove to elk city to get a clue further from where we needed to go only to pull us away from Black Kettle Grassland. If anyone noticed in the last video he was peeling potatoes which could have referred to kettle potato chips. so what the hell do lobsters and chickens and barns boats and horse drawing equipment have in common

    My thought was that he was sitting in a red seat AND eating Red Eats because the real clue, the red Jeep, was out on the street a couple of doors away from the sign.

  473. September 25, 2011 2:15 pm

    What if it is not an actual building. What if it is a stage – like a set – that they have put up for this? I mean could that be possible?

    The other two were out in the open – so this would have to be right? Kind of hiding in plain sight?

    I wouldn’t think they would have it on private property. Would have to be something with at least public access?

    • September 25, 2011 2:21 pm

    hope this helps with the chickens…lmao

    After World War II, however, the Belfast economy was driven by its poultry industry, including 2 of the state’s larger processors, Maplewood and Penobscot Poultry. Waldo County farms supplied the factories with up to 200,000 birds a day. The annual Broiler Festival became a popular summer event, attracting both local people and tourists. But the poultry business collapsed in the mid-1970s during a national recession, devastating the city and surrounding towns. In the early 1980s, the defunct chicken-feed silos that once fed millions of chickens at the foot of Main Street were demolished.

  495. September 25, 2011 2:30 pm

    If you go to Rockport, Maine which is 25 miles East of the last clue (which was Journeys End boat narbor which is in Penobscot Bay (website actually says its not the end of the journey, its the beginnign) then go to Reds Eats (famous Lobster shack in Rockport) – then head a few doors north and look for the sign you’ll see “Route 1”. If you go North on route 1 and go 300 miles you’ll just barely be in canada… but at the end of route 1 is Fort Peck, and Monument Park (287 Miles away) so its approx…. Along the way you’d see another “Eagle Lake” and another “Acadia park”. It is the “beginning of the end” of the longest East Coast highway that runs all the way to Key West (the furthest southern point in the US). If thats not it, then I would be surprised – but it sure sounds logical. Wish I was near maine, but live outside DC and have no hope of getting there. If someone else actually finds it there because this happens to work out it will be 2 days of searching “well spent”.

    Still in the game here but I’m stuck. Not heading to Journeys End because there’s been no connection to the phone clue and going deeper 40 mins to be one of hundreds wandering around looking at this blog on their iPhone for the next step doesn’t sound like a great idea.

    • Tinker permalink
      September 25, 2011 3:00 pm

      I think going to Red’s Eats and then the red seats is the right thing to find the sign. It include’s the phone clue and the red chair clue. Just to the east of Red’s Eats (maybe 100 feet) across a little road, not paved and (not named )and RR tracks are red hexagonal bench/table seats. That little road goes north and it’s not paved so street view doesn’t follow, but there’s only maybe five individual places on the west side of that little road.

      Gotcha Paul – don’t jump to a barn. You need to find “the red seats/easts/whatever” then a few doors down, find the sign – the sign may tell you where to go next … but if you can find the red seats/eats, and then a sign, you may not be in the right place. Best of luck!

    The barn looks staged to me, but I think it really was a horse barn at one time. Look through the life preserver. See how the vertical wooden post looks chewed on the edges? When horses are locked up in stalls, they get bored and chew on wood. It’s called cribbing. The damage looks just like that. The stall fronts are gone, but the Journey is backed into a stall.

    Okay – that is about as light and clear as I can get the capture of the live shot with a screen.
    Does not reveal a lot on the reflection in the headlamp. Are those buildings out there?

      im not sure we are getting a good reflection from the actual headlight…could be distorted by the light used to highlight the car, or distorted by internal shape of headlight reflector…might be better to use the reflection in bumber/fender area

    @big dizzle why did you bring up the clue..”the first…..east of the mississippi”? That would lead to Acadia National Park.

    Does anyone know the answer to this? I thought it was the physical clue sign … down from the red seats. Am I wrong?

    The reflection in the headlight is the light prop not an open door.

    • September 25, 2011 2:58 pm

      Yes – Agreed. As he was cleaning in the live view, it did not go away. So that reflection is not anything at all.

    The sign shop on Water Street, 3 doors down from Red Eats, is where the sign should be. Can anyone confirm that they are actually around there? Im armchair quarterbacking now after driving homw from New Hampshire with serious road burn. I was convinced they would take the route all the way back to Albany….Im seeing Im wrong…trying to help anyone at this point I just need the agony to end!! Someone has to read that sign

    • September 25, 2011 3:09 pm

      Yes, I agree. The clue should be at the Fairfield Sign Shop at 51 Water Street #C, just up from Red’s Eats. Look in the window, under the mat, on the door, on the sign for shop, if they are open today, go in and ask. I believe it will be there.

  548. September 25, 2011 3:04 pm

    ok we are about 20 miles north of wiscasset, the reds eats. behind the slowest people in the world. any ideas of chicken farms in the area? any ideas on the “clue sign”? thanks for the support. we owe you guys a drink, or a few! 😉 if you are riding around and see us we’re are the exhausted couple in the really dirty acura with mass plates.

    Am I wrong or are those horse collars on the wall?
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horse_collar
    That would mean working horses, right?
    Like here:

    in Wiscasset.
    They also have chickens.

    • September 25, 2011 3:13 pm

      Yes, those are horse collars. All the props are consistent with working horses. Yesterday, the guy on the feed also made a big show of cleaning up “manure” behind the vehicle, like it took a dump on the floor. The manure fork is still on the back wall on the right.

    • Ryan permalink

      yes, those are horse collars… albeit old ones but definitely horse collars

      • September 25, 2011 3:22 pm

        Buckwheat Blossom Farm (156 Gardiner Rd, Wiscasset 04578) uses their horses to plow. But from the looks of the photos on their blog, it would seem like the collars are too small. There’s a barn in Google maps that might match and shots of their other outbuildings show similar post and beam construction.

        According to the rules, if you tamper with a sign you could be disqualified. They should have someone sitting there watching those signs, and when someone takes one down, they should write down the plate number and nail a new one up.

        I’ve been looking at that damn Time & Temperature building, (the last visual clue), out my apartment window, two blocks away for 17 years. I just dragged myself back into said apartment after traveling about 625 miles round trip; driving up dirt roads in Paradox and Schroon Lake, and sleeping in my car at Ticonderoga. I feel like I’ve just been made the butt of a cosmic joke! Regardless, I enjoyed your blog Steven and the contributions made by other bloggers. Nice to see the generosity of souls without a chance of winning the vehicle. BTW, With nothing but a U.S. atlas, an old, awkward laptop, (with a dead battery), a basic cell phone and a 1997 Subaru Outback with a non-functioning odometer, (MY search engine for the “World Wide World”), I missed an exit on the way and ended up in Bethel, VT where I witnessed some of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Irene. Thinking of those people tonight. (Sorry for the double post, the other one went in the middle of the page, maybe that one can deleted? Thanks.)

    I think someone needs to backtrack – go back to monument square at the CALL JOE Time and Temp building. Find due north and get on foot! Find some red seats, go two doors down, look for a sign.

    We are missing something here – that sign has to be located. It is crucial!

    Hi guys,
    I’ve been following this forum for awhile, but this is my first post. My boyfriend is on the ground. He read the the sign in the window of the sign shop a few doors down from Red’s Eats- “Life is a journey, not a destination 1-888-xxx-xxxx”

    When we called the number, it said to go north, look for woodworking and windowshop at an antique store that’s owner’s name rhymes with what they sell and in that window “you’ll find what you’re looking for”

    There’s a store called Shady Lady, but there’s not much in that window.

    Any help is appreciated 🙂

      Hi Chelsea and yes!! Confirmation of the sign … and near Red’s Eats (they just spoke it wrong).

      And Chelsea. We’ll get looking … so that should be continuing on Water Street, yes?

        Chelsea. Can you confirm his route from Red’s?

        From Red’s, the sign shop is one block north.
        The Shady Lady is on the south side of Water St, but he couldn’t find anything meaningful in the window.

        OK. Here’s the full message (because of the first part and to be fair to your boyfriends progress – I removed the number from your post)

        “Nice work. First things first. Be careful who share this number with. 99% of the people that are hoping to find the Journey, think they can find it from their easy chair. So, don’t undo all own your hard work. Blend in with the locals as you head north … check out some woodworking made by hard labor.

        Or Better yet. We hear antiquing is huge around here, so why not do some window shopping. There’s one in particular that’s named after the owner whose name also rhymes with what she sells. In the window, you’ll find what you’re looking for.”

        I like Shady Lady … but if that’s south on Water Street, it seems like the wrong direction … “blend in with the locals as you head north” is curious … there are a lot of antiques shops, will start to check. Worth mentioning: Dodge said someone was 15 miles away. I believe the only way they could know that is my getting the phone call and this location is within 15 miles (unless there’s another one :()

        It may not be near Red’s but further north … that’s a personal call. Switching over to search now.

      Is there a reflection in the window?

        He said there isn’t. Dodge was really serious about taking this search into the “real world.” I’m at HQ in Illinois and this marks the first time in my life Google couldn’t help me o_O
