    I still can't get the pipes to connect.
    Do you use all the pipes?

    Thanks,

    Yes, You do use all the pipes. It took me about 10 minutes to manipulate them all!

    You can also choose

    Hannibal
    as the place to go. The clue to that is the

    Either one will take you to the next place.

    I found the pipes rather easy to connect, but it took me a while to figure out what to do with the piece of paper.

    I've been racking my brain trying to figure out how in the world you came up with

    Here is what I found odd. When I did test the destination as

    In Tom Sawyer, St. Petersburg is the fictional version of Hannibal, MO .

    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
    Click to see Spoiler:
    Hannibal
    and then to test your destination, I submitted that and instead of telling me that we could not go there--the boat took me once again to

    Hannibal
    .
    I never went to Hannibal. After I typed in St Petersburg, the boat took me directly to the cave.

    I want to test what happens if I enter Hannibal but the game wouldn't load for the last 10 mins. I'll try again later.

    The scrap of paper contains text from the Adventures of Tom Sawyer. As cricketeen pointed out, Hannibal is the hometown of Mark Twain and the fictional town of St Petersburg is where the novel took place.

    Where is the early symbol....?

    I replayed by using Hannibal and also arrived at the cave. Either destination works, I didn't know I could enter Hannibal as well.

    Do you mean National Mall? The puzzle pieces we've been collecting seem to point to this answer, but is this the correct and final one?

    I don't know what to submit this week. What early symbol do you think they are referring to?

    I could be entirely wrong, but for two weeks now I have been convinced they are referring to the U.S Flag. I don't think the final answer is the National Mall - I think the focus is more narrow.

    Well, so far the puzzle pieces we are given by completing each challenge are clearly representative of the National Mall in Washington DC. So far we have received pieces for the White House, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Memorial, National Gallery of Art/National Air & Space Museum and this week's piece was West Potomac Park. And those pieces fit perfectly in the grid provided.

    In the next challenges, we should be getting the U.S. Capitol, Jefferson Memorial and The National Museums/Smithsonian.

    That being said...I doubt that the answer is the Mall. Surely the clues will pinpoint one of the specific locations on the Mall...but where?

    Where is the early symbol...?

    Challenge 1: Rush to where the Treasure stands

    Challenge 2: Look on water for it is inspiration

    Challenge 3: In dark times, the words form

    Challenge 4: Match the tune with an early drinking song

    Challenge 5: Mist half covers the symbol

    Do you think we should just use the circled words and ignore the rest of the clues?

    Earlier someone suggested Fort McHenry as final answer. Since it's not on the National Mall, I guess we can rule it out?
