Welcome to Week 4 of my five week Easter Egg Treasure Hunt! This real-life treasure hunt ends with a 27-pound chest filled with $1,500 in one-dollar coins. Of course, when it comes to finding a treasure, you need a treasure map. Click here to purchase yours.
Time to get Eggcited!
Here’s something to get eggcited about! The first team to find the Week 4 marker receives this miniature of my 3D printed egg. It comes filled with metal replica Spanish Doubloons and some of my extra life adventure tokens. So hurry! There’s no time to wait!
Week 4 Riddle

Hint: The password is in ALL CAPS with no spaces between words.
Update from Facebook. I wanted to add it here as well so everyone has access to it. Instead of a hint, I’ll offer some advice. Many of these clues (weeks 2 and 4) were designed to force you to visit a location to find an answer that might not otherwise be available from a simple image search. Next, do not enter the password how you think the answer should be written but how it is actually printed. Finally, the riddles aren’t the only clues. I’ve left hints in other places.
How it Works
A new riddle is revealed every Saturday at 7 am beginning April 9, 2022. Its solution unlocks the page with that week’s second clue. Finding the answer to the first riddle will likely involve you visiting the hinted upon location.
The second clue will have adventurers visiting various spots in the region as they gather segments of the treasure’s GPS coordinates. Those able to successfully complete the five-week quest unlock the resting place of my Easter egg that redeems for the coin-laded treasure chest.
How to Play
Playing is simple. Purchase your treasure map from the Trust and check Uncharted Lancaster’s website every Saturday at 7 am beginning April 9, 2022, for that week’s challenge. Next, solve the riddles and decipher the clues to unlock segments of the treasure’s GPS coordinates each week. Participants will be unable to claim my Easter egg until the final weekly clue is released on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at 7 am in this first-to-find winner takes all game of skill.
Find a treasure. Preserve a treasure.
When you purchase a copy of the map, you also get a year’s membership with the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County. Profits from this year’s treasure hunt are being used to kick start the Trust’s digital archiving project. This ambitious undertaking involves scanning their 160,000 artifact collection, including many one-kind items that highlight Lancaster County’s rich architectural heritage. The project is expected to cost upwards of $200,000. So while you are busy trying to find my treasure, you are helping the Trust preserve theirs.
