Feeling Lucky?

If you're a regular reader of this blog, you know that I've been in search of the key for the Kia Soul in Our Wisconsin magazine's "Wisconsin Treasure Hunt" contest. You can read my previous posts about our progress HERE, HERE and HERE.

Every issue of the magazine contains basically the same content along with a new clue and the latest counties eliminated from the running. If you read closely in the August/September issue, however, you might have noticed that one word was a little different... perhaps illuminating an additional, hidden clue? In case you missed it, here it is:

Under the paragraph indicating that the key isn't going to be easy to find, the sentence ending in "...unless that person gets incredibly lucky," the word "lucky" was italicised, wherein the previous issues it was not.

My first instinct was to Google whether there was a city in Wisconsin called "Luck," which there is. But it's in an eliminated county, so that was no help. I did however start thinking that perhaps the key is located in a city or park with a name referring to a symbol of luck, such as "horseshoe" or "clover." Maybe the picnic shelter that contains the hidden key has a horseshoe hanging on it?

In any case, we will continue searching and eagerly await the next issue to see which counties have been eliminated and receive an additional clue.

Good luck searching!
