The Chief of CONTROL needs your help!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is The Chief, head of the counterintelligence agency CONTROL, based in Washington D.C.

Geocachers and Waymarkers, the U.S. Government needs your help! About two months ago we sent Agents 86 and 99 undercover on a mission to track down a KAOS agent. News was that the agent was last seen in the Southwest, disguised as a University of Arizona professor of genealogy. It has been a little over a month since I’ve heard from my top agents, and I need your help. Knowing Max and 99, surely they left a hidden message for me, but even with all the resources at CONTROL we can’t find it.  Bruce and Lloyd have hacked into Max and 99’s account so we could send this message, but the highly trained duo cannot find any pertinent information on their whereabouts.

The first geocacher or waymarker who sends me the complete translated message will be awarded the rank of CONTROL’s 3rd best agent. Private messaging is required, and the Cone of Silence is my preferred method of communication. The first five geocachers or waymarkers who send me the complete message translation will each get a gift. You must state that you did not get help or hints from anyone. Please do not post any hints or spoilers on social media or here in the forums until Max and 99 are safely back at CONTROL HQ.

CONTROL appreciates any help you can offer. We need our top agents back! We are counting on you, geocachers and waymarkers!

The Chief

If Max and 99 don't make it back to CONTROL HQ, is there an artist out there who can paint a mural in their honor?

Take the night off and enjoy a show at the Bricktown event center. That'll take your mind off things.

P.S. I'll be opening a field office soon in case anyone wants to stop by.

Breaking News from CONTROL.

Since the U.S. Government has ordered all non-essential businesses to close, we may need to close our field office. I am waiting for clarification if the government is shutting itself down. We will cross that bridge when the time comes.

If you failed your agent code breaking class, no worries! Max and 99 would have considered that when sending me a message. They mostly use the same 3 codes

I know a lot of you are required to shelter in place these days. Family members are getting on your nerves. Put an end to your family feuding and work on some puzzles together.

Congratulations to vulture1957 for decoding the message from Max and 99 and sending that information to CONTROL. You have been assigned the title of Agent #72 on the CONTROL roster.

 

Our top agents are now safe and being debriefed about their mission. The KAOS agent has been detained. Great job, vulture! You are now officially the #3 Agent at CONTROL. The U.S. Government thanks you for your service!

I got lucky. This project took a lot of patience and a little bit of creativity. A lot of patience! (that's a big hint!).

I don't know if anyone has been following the latest news from CONTROL, but we are safely back at HQ. Great news for us, and The Chief, who was preparing to promote the #3 agent if we didn't make it back. Good news all around!

I hope everyone is still working on the hidden message. You can't be the First to solve it, but since I declined the prize, you could still be the First to get a prize.

If The Vulture don't want it, I'm beginning to doubt that it may be worth the effort. :D

There is no need to open a waymark page and read it. Although you are certainly welcome to!

Good News Vulture! I Can Tell From  The "Waymarks" TabThat Someone Appears Close To Solving!

In addition to  Vulture's good hint, I'll add this: I didn't get help from anyone, despite what it may look like.  We were alone, undercover, and sent the message without any help from anyone.
