State - Highway - Mile
A copy of The Clock Without a Face can be seen on the Fifth Floor. Residents Vera Mazel & Josie Grey are self-described puzzle people. When discussing the book, Vera asks for help saying that she had found the state and the mile, but can't find the highway. This has lead to the speculation that each buried number can be found by deducing a state, highway, and mile for each floor using clues found on each floor. The following section can be used for documenting any speculation as to which state, mile, and highway to which this floor may hint.
- The eye, mouth and oval mirror (?) on the wall could be a rebus for Idaho (Eye + duh + O).
- Most of the artwork by the sink links to California.
- The mirror could spell out OHIO (oh+hi+oh)
- Interstate 5
- The eye painting can stand for "interstate". There are five teeth the in the paintning of the mouth. This can mean the I-5. Or if you count the missing tooth. The Pacific Coast Highway is 1.
- 445, under a tree in the parking lot of the southbound rest area (on the west side).
