    Yes, it is long enough. It's just that you have to toss it just exactly right to make it work. I'm a keyboarder, not a mouse person, and it took me about 25 minutes to toss it correctly and release the keys. You need to pull down before you toss it up and release the mouse button.

    Every time I touch the rope with my mouse it returns to the backpack. And Robohost is no help - LOL! How do you grab it to do the pull down and toss toward the keys?

    Thanks, guys, I know I am not going to take the time to look up Morse code, so I guess I don't have to worry about the rest of it.

    Cheers

    Arielflies, did you attach the washer from the lab to your rope? It shouldn't return to your backpack after an unsuccessful toss.

    Harvest, after the lab you fly to Concord, MA.

    Thanks so much Kay113 - I would never have thought to combine the washer and the rope...but then, I've never had to break out of jail before. And thanks to those who discovered the slight pull down then push up to toss the roped ring. This was one that had me stumped (well - other than the stopper in the fountain last week)...though I did decode the message. Found a large print Morse Code Key on the Ask Jeeves site. I am discovering I'm lousy at puzzles, but I'll continue to play anyway.

    If you are stuck:

    You need to click left of the wheel to get a piece of paper.

    Rotate the pipes so they all connect. Use the valve that you took from the box, turn it and put the paper over the steam to reveal the writing.

    Hope this helps.

    It did, Kay, thanks a lot! My answer for this week is the same as last week. Makes me wonder if I am correct or stubborn! Do you (or anyone else) think they have it (without revealing it)?

    I don't understand where you got

    The scrap of paper found on the paddleboat is actually a remnant of the manuscript of one of his novels about a boy and his friends in

    The funny thing about this game is that when I submitted the correct destination, it took me to

    Kay118,

    I'm not sure where you got the place to tell the paddle boat to go (sorry, I don't know how to do that hidden text). I got the same answer as Primetimetommie. Can you explain?
