Using a Reverse Alphabet Cipher, Body Decodes to:



hello again,

struggling with evaluating mortals and harem meeting?

Clue: the first contains three words, one of which is ‘get’. The second contains m-three

To find location of bike rack: apply the solution to the code in the subject of this email

To unlock: turn right two or more times and stop at 16. Turn left one full turn past 2. turn right and stop at 7.



Solving Anagrams:



Evaluating Mortals = Get Naval Simulator

Harem Meeting = m-three enigma (m3-enigma)



two together = "Get naval m3-enigma simulator"



so, i/we got m3-enigma simulators, and put in the subject code, didn't make any sense. so we set the rotors to "ABA" - a previous confusing new song name, and we got:



college of architecture near gerald hines = Near Gerald Hines College of Architecture



which is in Houston University Campus.



We couldn't afford to fly out there, so we asked people if they would be willing to go treasure hunting for us if we told them where it was, MuseMom's sprang to our aid in their infinite brilliance and wonderfulness.



MuseMom Mary drove a good 3 hours from Austin to Houston to find the signed mountain bike - seemed to have difficulty fitting it in the car though!


awaiting pics!

Congrats to them all!
