Clue No. 8 Monday Sept. 27, 2021

Dating back decades to a humble start in Eau Claire and La Crosse,
quickly the company would not be at a loss;
Now a Midwestern staple for those on the road,
no matter if the trip is by truck or carload..

My take on Clue 8: when time allows...

HO HO HO !!! Santa has come early this year...

Now where do the other 7 clues tell us about which KWIK TRIP to begin digging around for that elusive Medallion ???

Stay tuned...HAPPY HUNTING !!!

Finally a Medallion Hunt that had well written clues...that misled some of us who had done well in past hunts...including yours truly who misunderstood some early clues which led me, and some of us out to dry...

Looking foreword to the next Oktoberfest Medallion hunt...about a year from now...
