Gamer Kyle D. drove from Atlanta, Georgia to Charleston, SC in a rain storm to snag Clue 3! Kyle arrived at the meeting spot about an hour before 11:11PM and hung out. We all watched him on the College of Charleston's Webcam. It was kinda great. Tons of Gamers were on the GO IV board talking and watching together.
Below is KYLE O.'s GO IV Charleston Adventure:
"First, after I realized that the next drop was in Charleston, a city I've never been to, I checked how far it was and thought "329 miles isn't that far I need some adventure in my life" so I planned it out and decided I was going to go. I didn't know anyone in the town but I sent out a message on Myspace to a nice young lady and she told me she had a spare room I could stay in so most of the logistics were taken care of. I left my house around 4:30, got caught in a lot of rain and had to deal with a lot of drivers that feel the need to slow down to 20mph in a 70mph zone because it is raining. I made good time getting to Charleston even though I did end up going down a wrong interchange halfway there. Google maps told me it would take 5 hours and 27 minutes but I made it in a little over 4 hours. When I got into town the directions to College Way and Green Way were wrong so I ended up taking a wrong turn and found myself in the parking lot for the Aquarium where I got yelled about by some security guard. I explained the situation to him and asked where the college campus was and he told me to find it myself. Nice fellow! I found a parking spot by what I thought was the campus but found out I was wrong. I called my friend Ashley up and she pulled up google maps and pointed me in the right direction. I arrived at the drop point an hour early and I guess the board and bunch of people were watching me on Webcam the entire time! Which is kind of creepy but kind of exciting. I talked to my friend on the phone to pass the time and I would occasionally forget that I was being watched by God knows how many people on webcam but would quickly remember a moment after I would pick my nose or something equally as embarassing. I was glad the rain had subsided to a slight mist. Arriving at the drop point I didn't really want to leave thinking that someone would run out of the darkness at 11:11pm and steal my glory haha. A security guard kept looking at me funny and remained in close proximity to me at all times. Around 10:30pm a man showed up in gray slacks and a tan jacket. He was carrying a blue and white golf umbrella and had a black duffel bag. The man shook hands with the security guard and they talked for the better part of ten minutes of which I couldn't make out anything they discussed. The man walked off going in the opposite direction of which he came. 11:05 came around and I decided to go ahead and light my candle and have it ready. At 11:12 the man I had seen earlier talking to the security guard approached me again. I greeted him with "Haha I thought it was going to be you" in which he displayed a candle, asked for a light and suggested that we move into range of the webcam. I lit his candle and he told me "I have something for you" handed me the box and envelope than said "Go forth and thank you for playing" As he walked off I looked at the metal box and it had a key hole in the front. I asked him "Do I need a key to open this box" to which he replied "You'll find out. Go forth" and he disappeared into the night. I called the person I was staying with and met them at a bar/restaurant down the street to examine the clues only to get a phone call from my friend saying that they had already posted the fourth clue online and I had to call someone else to solve it online via the phone. I had intended to leave the next morning but found the company of the ones I had befriended that night to be quite wonderful people that I prolonged my journey in the style of Grayson Ozias and decided to Go Forth on my own adventure and was very glad that I did so. I had a great time, met some great people and got to see a city I had never visited and upon leaving I had wondered why I never had."
