Sammy Hagar (the Red Rocker)
The sun started to come out in the mid-afternoon, and as players left Lake
Mead and began heading northward along its shore, the terrain became more rugged
and lonely. Cel coverage began to wane and facilities were
scarce... the desert mountains beckoned.
Redstone Dune Trail - The Setup
The drive to Redstone was long. Tiring and desolate. For the first
time in hours the teams were in their vans and operating in normal game
mode: solve a puzzle with all facilities at hand, and move to the next
At Redstone Dune Trail the participants arrived and found next to nothing
except literally a solitary track through the hills, looping back to the parking
area. Silent and eerie, the Shelby-seekers mostly encountered no people,
no animals, nothing. And in fact, a quick run around the trail loop left
many teams empty handed... where were the clues? No envelopes were to be
Difficult to reach Game Control because of poor cel-coverage, the secret to
Redstone required one to listen carefully to the sounds of the hills...
rounding the trail between distant bird caws and the crunch of gravel underfoot
echoed the sounds of music in the distance... music!? In the desert? A
runner panting for breath could never hear it... but one who was attuned to the
surroundings could zero in on the source of the sound, and there among the
honeycomb were hidden the next clues.
All senses are necessary in the Game.
Many teams ended up leaving location just a bit before sunset, as the magic hour
happened. Nothing in particular stood out as an individual story-- that we
know of-- although it's true that the first team to arrive at this location got
here before Game Control.
Behind the Scenes
A minor snafu occurred with the clues at this site... we forgot to mix up
the Rubiks Cubes! (oops...) Still made for an interesting
puzzle.... just not quite as ironic in the end. Solve the
puzzle to see what we mean....
