Did you notice that the described locations in the text of the book
are frequently incorrect? For example, in the book, the Road House
is described as being on Highway J, but in the map, it is located
between Main and Highway 21. Another mistake made was that, although
in the show, the Road House and the Book House are clearly shown
to be not 30 yards from each other, the map shows them to be quite
aways apart.

So, where's the Black Lodge Gate? I noticed that there are several
small runes inside circles strewn all over the map, and one of them is
encased inside what appears to be flames. I haven't checked my tape yet,
but these runes bear a striking resemblance to the ones on the
mysterious black box that Jones gave Catherine.
