Marlboro Big Dig Answers:

  • Clue #1  If you can find the tallest giant in all the land, you’ll find that the million will lie to the east. Redwood National and State Parks, California
  • Clue #2 Where the West expands. The million will lie somewhere to the west of a monumental gateway to the West.   Gateway Arch, St. Louis, Missouri.
  • Clue #3 If you want a chance to claim a million, you’ll have to head south of the first shared international, national park of its kind. Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, West Glacier, Montana
  • Clue #4 This once endangered southwestern isopod is naturally found in only one thermal spring and shares its name with the county it lives in. Like this animal, the million will be found in only one spot. And to find it, you’ll have to look further North.   Sedillo Spring in Socorro County in New Mexico
  • Clue #5 One cowboy put this song in his book.  But he gave another man the credit for writing it. As you’re looking for the million the confusion doesn’t matter. Just go west of a historic route that shares it’s name with the credited songwriter. Chisholm Trail
  • Clue #6 On the other side of this greenback, you’ll find three famous figures that roamed across the West.  Only one of them, however, ever set foot in the territory where the million will be. Bison (states where bison herds are found today:  California, Montana, South Dakota, Utah)
  • Clue #7 On a night, when the weathers right and you’re settling down by a campfire where the millions located, you might be within earshot  of this toad’s call.  His feet are as good for digging as his voice is for singing. Spadefoot Toad
  • Clue #8 Pull up a seat in the diner pictured above. You’re not looking for a meal. You’re looking for official symbols from eight western states. And in one of those states, you’ll find the million.  California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana,  Oregon, South Dakota, Utah.  I took out Nevada & New Mexico, because they were eliminated in other clues
  • Clue #9 Watch the video to start a major road trip around the location. Pay attention to where you are, complete all four legs, and you’ll have the spot boxed in. Part 2 is coming up next week. Meantime, let’s ride. (POSSIBLY the Million Dollar Highway,  Colorado, or  Highway 12 in Utah)
  • Clue #10 This town started near the turn of the century with the discovery of quartz.  It quickly grew to have a stock exchange, hotels and even an ice cream shop with Alaska in it’s name.  The town’s gone.  You could visit where it was to take pictures, but do not for the million because it will be in a different state. Rhyolite Ghost Town in Nevada
  • Clue #11 It may look like there’s a whole lot of nothing out here.  But keep making tracks to complete the second leg of your journey around the location. (watch the video) starts in Colorado, then into Arizona, then ended in Utah
  • Clue #12 Either You’re Here, Or You’re Not.  True story. This Southwestern town celebrates its name change every year – a name that poses a choice.  You could pick  a side, but you’re better off walking away.  You won’t find the million anywhere in this town’s state.  Truth or Consequences, New Mexico
  • Clue #13  Stay Awake.  You may be riding shotgun, but you don’t want to miss the scenery.  The final leg of the trip is coming next week. Possibly in Utah
  • Clue #14 How the West was named.  Two were named for a river; one was named for a mountain and a river.  And one took its name from a count/  All four of these western counties share the same saintly name.  But only one contains the million. Possibly San Juan County Utah, or San Juan County Colorado
  • Clue #15 Road Trip 4. Watch the video. The trio around the million is ending, but if you’ve kept your eyes on the road, you’re that much closer to closing in on the location.
  • Clue #16 Find the rock and figure out the route to get close to the spotIt seems as though someone once tried to chisel an entrance to this rock, even though the whole thing is made out of the Entrada (Spanish for “entrance”). Use it as a landmark to guide your exit from the highway onto the road toward the million. The Abajo (Spanish for “below”) will be above you – which is another part of the big Paradox you’re in.
  • Clue #17  It’s the end of the road for clues, but your chance to win the million still awaits.Between an ancient newspaper and a pair of pistols, find the start of a route that leads to a sink full of steak.  A quarter mile west is where you’ll find the location of the million.  For a chance to win it, give us the GPS coordinates of that location.

New This Week:


  1. I went with 38.08 and-109.57 on mine and 38.07 -109.57on my husbands account. The dugout ranch and reservoir are round the second choice. You can google for longitude and latitude maps to home in on which coordinates you like best. I agree with Gena’s area. Our coordinates are very close. Good luck P.S since Iocked in final answer I can not play instant win game Rules say it is still open. If you can play I would play that and wait on final answer, you have until august 10 to submit final answer

  2. I also agree with Don

  3. Deprived4toolong says

    .the clue says find the START of the road that LEADS to sink full of steak. Utahs Hwy 211 is the road that “LEADS to” a Basin Beef Rd a.k.a. (sink full of beef). Says its a half of a mile from the START of that road (211) that ‘leads” to Beef Basin Rd. So, instead of the intersection of 211 and Beef Basin, are they saying its a half of a mile off of THE START of the road that LEADS to beef basin, or the START of 211, then half mile off of it, “it” being 211? CONFUSED. Suggestions? Thoughts on the word play from clue 17 anyone?
    Just sayin ….. could be half mile off of the BEGINNING of 211 which leads to beef basin. We have only ONE shot folks, lets get it right.

    • It also says to look between two pistols and an ancient newspaper…so the start of 211 is NOT in between those two landmarks.

  4. Just won the Premium camping set!!! woohooo happy dance!!

  5. Todd johnson says

    I entered an answer to every clue but when I check my responses it shows that I have only answered two clues. Why is that? I did a lot of research and came up with clear concise answers only to have two of them be counted, even though it said thanks for your answers we will add them later, or whatever it said. I really want to know why my answers to all the other clues didn’t count.
