I wrote previously about an “Analytics Treasure Hunt” organized by John Toczek. I have just heard from John that the treasure has been found:
Just wanted to give you an update on the 2012 Analytics Treasure Hunt. The treasure was found by two member team, Madineh Sarvestani and Shepard Wallace who successfully retrieved the treasure on Saturday, 8/18/2012 at about 10am EST. The correct coordinates were 40.07284, -75.21907. I’ve posted their pictures on www.puzzlor.com with a short note indicating that it has been found and that the contest is over for this year.
Here are the photos of the winning pair (Shepard looks quite pleased with the cash!):
