    I could probably figure that out of I knew anything about the area.

    And the verse is in iambic pentameter. :)

    I wonder if you could search for it using Google maps?

    The clue reminds me of this...

    Ex Keraptis Cum Amore
    3 were taken, 3 I'll keep
    From the fiend who rules the north;
    Stolen far and hidden deep
    In lands where fire issues forth.

    Seek ye out the melted fane
    Standing west of fiery stack;
    'Neath the god of blood and pain
    Bravely step and don't look back.

    The gem is held with stony eyes
    By the beast in the burning pit;
    The wand beyond hot geysers lies
    Left where the undead sit.

    The magic stone you've yet to find
    In tripled-double pyramid;
    All the fixed, and you are mine
    To serve or perish, as I bid.

    I care not, mortal king or fool
    What men you deign to send;
    As slaves they'll heed my darkest rule
    Or meet their fiery end.

    I wonder.....................do the people of USMB think they can crack the code?

    If so, I volunteer to travel to the place designated, and split the winnings evenly with everyone that helps on this thread.

    But then again..........................maybe someone will read this and get it for themselves, and not sharing with anyone.

    However, how cool would it be to figure this out?

    Been done before. There has been one out there for years. No one has ever been smart enough to find it.
