THE LAST RIDDLE
Perhaps riding a bicycle, perhaps not. But how he got there is important. He knew that, it changed a lot of things. If you are the first one to know, you'll find it. If you look that is.
Clue #1 January 2014
"It is near a sign of change,
somewhere South of 28th , in between Grandville and
Kentwood. Question: Why? Exclamation: Oh! Vase: Ming.
Everyone clear on that? OK!
Clue #2 February 4th 2014
"Eventually did come change but his end came first. It's
good to remember: Near means by, not at!"
Clue #3 February 18Th 2014
"You can get there either way. Number one and two
others between two and nine will help in two ways.
But, never all three together.
Clue #4 March 11Th 2014
Between hints in the riddle, it's there. Amongst the
clues, even closer to where. 156, but not all together.
To keep it fair: two mean him, two mean there.
