Status Acquired

The coordinates were discovered on December 10th after a message from the agent system (202_999_3335) which indicated the location and the clue "BL/HOLE". The drop site was visited twice, after which a CD was found; the clue turned out to be referring to the color of the disc, its name, and its contents.


The first visit to the drop site was by coastlines, Akael Djx, B_Elanna_Torres and ElPaso Citizen. Despite their efforts, the drop was not found.

The drop site was visited again by porchemonkey, borg484, echimp and anon. At the same time as their visit, we decoded strange SSTV transmissions from agent code 16041. The group was eventually able to locate the drop tucked underneath one of the trailers in a position that was identical to the SSTV images.
