QUEST: The Mosquito HostEdit

Gus: Ee-youch! That's the third time a 'skeeter's bit me this mornin'! And I know where they're a-comin' from!

There's an ol' stagnant pond that's gotten all scummy 'n overgrown. 'Til we get it cleaned up, we're gonna get bit!

Find the stagnant pond!

Tap the Canyon to Explore.

Pickaxe med: 2
Clean off the pond scum.

Tap the area to Clear.

Clock med: 04:00:00
Gus: Yuck! I'll be needin' lots o' help to get this here bog cleaned up; it's been sittin' there festerin' for awhile now!

I'm sure everybody'll pitch in, 'cuz they ain't gettin' bit any less'n before!

“This project will have them have them all swamped with work!”

QUEST: No-Flow StoneEdit

Gus: We can't start un-scummin' that pond 'til we line it with somthin' that won't let the water get all muddy.

Way down deep in the mine's some rock we used to keep out the damp. Some of that'd work jes' fine!

Search the old mine for some impervious stone.

Tap the Old Mine to Explore.

Pickaxe med: 1 - 3
Retrieve the impervious stone.

Tap the Impervious Stone to Collect.

Gus: I'm gonna get these stones back to the pond, but on the way I reckon I'll call on Miss Ruby.

She's the smartest lady I know. If anyone has good ideas about cleanin' up that pond, it's her!

“Water that seeps out of the pond would be a 'lake leak.'”
REWARD Silver med: 100 Xp med: 25

QUEST: Defining the LiningEdit

Gus: You shoulda seen how happy Miss Ruby was when I told her 'bout cleanin' up the pond. Seems they've been getting bit too!

It sounds like little Norma Jean's been havin' a real tough time of it. Fer her sake, let's get this done!

Line the pond with the impervious stone.

Tap the Water Purifier to Upgrade.

Clock med: 02:00:00
Gus: Now that the water's gonna stay where it's supposed to be, we've got the makin's of a pretty little pond on our hands!

Whatever Miss Ruby's got planned, I bet it's got somethin' to do with some lady named Flora she says she's lookin' fer!

“Not only is it a Great Lake, it's Superior!”

QUEST: Marine GreeneryEdit

Ruby Mae: I'm delighted Gus has decided to restore that pond to it's natural state of balance! Those mosquitoes are intolerable!

We need to tear those rotten plants out and replace them with some healthy bulrushes 'n cat tails.

Explore the canyon for some healthy plants.

Tap the Canyon to Explore.

Pickaxe med: 2
Retrieve the aquatic plants.

Tap the Aquatic Plants to Collect.

Clock med: 01:00:00
Ruby Mae: Once these are in, the water should clear up quite a bit. And what a pleasant task it will be, getting these planted.

Norma Jean might want to help! The chance to wade around in a pond on a hot day, getting all mucky, might appeal to her!

“Bulrushes can be dangerous, so don't wander near the sedge!”
REWARD Silver med: 100 Xp med: 25

QUEST: Miss Fancy PlantsEdit

Norma Jean: Somethin's up! Momma told me to get my old, dirty coveralls on 'n meet 'er down by the barn.

She sez we got some kind of chore to do, 'n it's a surprise. I hope it ain't the kind of surpise I don't like!

Help Norma dig up the pond!

Tap the Water Purifier to Upgrade.

Clock med: 08:00:00
Norma Jean: Aw, that wasn't a chore at all! Me 'n Momma spent all day playin' in the pond 'n digging round in the mud!

We planted some reeds 'n stuff, but Momma did most of that. Now outta my way, Momma sez I gotta get myself cleaned up!

“At the end of the day, a good grime was had by all!”

QUEST: An Absorbing TaskEdit

Gus: Ha! Didja see Norma Jean? Splashin' around like a river otter, she was!

When I saw her movin' the water 'round like that, I had me one of my clever ideas. To see it work, I need some charcoal.

Search the old mine for some charcoal.

Tap the Old Mine to Explore.

Pickaxe med: 1 - 3
Retrieve the charcoal.

Tap the Charcoal to Collect.

Gus: From all my minin' days. I learned that this fine charcoal is real good at cleanin' anything that passes through it.

With a little of Mr. Carson's help, I think I can rig somethin' up that'll take the dirt right out of the pond directly!

“It'll go in a machine that's built to clean!”

QUEST: Filters in KilterEdit

Gus: What a cozy lil' spot this is turnin' out to be! It makes me wanna have more thoughts, jes' so I can be alone with 'em!

Miss Ruby's are sure doin' the trick; the water's half-way clear already! These filter's'll help even more!

Begin filtering the pond water.

Tap the Water Purifier to Upgrade.

Clock med: 02:00:00
Gus: I've put a few of these filters into the pond, but they can't do a lot sittin' there like that.

This is why I need Mr. Carson's help: I need him to make a wheel that'll git the water all agitatin' about.

“We'll continue until we've had our fil-ter!”
REWARD Silver med: 100 Xp med: 25

QUEST: Scrubbing TroublesEdit

Carson: It's 'bout time someone got that mosquito breedin' ground cleaned up. I was wishin' I had a tail to sweep 'em off me!

Speakin' of which, Gus wants me to build a wheel to move his filters through the water. That shouldn't be much trouble!

Search the canyon for a wheel.

Tap the Canyon to Explore.

Pickaxe med: 2
Retrieve the scrubbing wheel.

Tap the Scrubbing Wheel to Collect.

Clock med: 01:00:00
Carson: This here wheel's a lil' bulkier than I thought it'd be, 'n it might be tougher to wrangle than I thought.

But when I think of all that calamine lotion I won't have to buy, I'm happier than a heifer in hayseed!

“The water's motion will make him not need the lotion.”
REWARD Silver med: 100 Xp med: 25

QUEST: Convection DirectionEdit

Carson: This pond sure is a beauty! Miss Ruby did a real good job of landscapin' with those reeds 'n rushes!

But this is a lot of purifyin' for one small pond. We might be able to put it to better use!

Begin scrubbing the pond.

Tap the Water Purifier to Upgrade.

Clock med: 06:00:00
Carson: Now that we've got it built, we can run some pipes from it and use it to purify whatever dirty water we might have.

The dirty water goes in, the clean water comes out, 'n just like that, we got ourselves an all-purpose water purifier!

“A water treatment plant is a work in processing!”
REWARD Silver med: 100 Xp med: 25

QUEST: We Built Our Filter!Edit

Gus: Great shakes, my idea's even better'n I thought! I was plannin' on cleanin' up a swamp, 'n I ended up makin' a purifier!
Continue purifying the pond water!

Tap the Water Purifier to harvest. (1x)

Gus: Mr. Carson's already run a pipe to his place, n' fer once, Miss Ruby's happy one of my ideas don't have no downside!

And the best part is I ain't gotta scratch any of them itchy skeeter bites no more!

“This particular fixin's nixed the itchin'!”
