This was the first mission after Skunk broke his nose. Skunk decided to not to ride so as he could heal. He planned a special mission. Small peices of metal with secret messages were locked with small combination locks around the city, each message giving clues to the next, with a prize at the end of the trail. Scratch was supposed to be the pilot with the answers in case the trail grew completely cold, however he did not show. Skunk wound up having to go in his place, but tried to stay out of the hunt unless things really started to fall apart. The battalion barely reached the last clue in time to get the key to unlock the box they were carrying to get the prize: money for ice cream at Luna Herrell's. Right before the last clue we lost Kung Fool, so she didn't get any ice cream.
