    The clues were posted yesterday
  • kazyazy
    I saw the clues...they were there
  • bt34
    Really enjoying this nod. Bout time I put my gray matter to some use. Looking forward to the rest of the clues.
  • MamaK
    so if we miss a day we can't join in any more?
  • kazyazy
    I'm probably not going to be near a computer Sunday :(
  • donna6197
    I missed day 2 also - had a look at about 8.30 this morning and there were no clues.
  • craftykiwi
    They were on my PC donna6197 so not sure what happened. I agree it is lots of fun. Thansk nod.
  • nod
    The clues for day two were posted around 6pm EDST yesterday and were removed early this morning. The clues definitely were put up and as advised - at a random time. I am sorry that these were missed by some. You do need to have all the clue answers and know the destination for each day to continue to play. mmmm do we need to break the rules and post day 2 again? :D
