Blimey this was a hard one. It was fairly straightforward to do the "simple reading" but working out what the symbols were was surprisingly difficult. I tried working from both ends in turn but still ended up with a number of places where there were multiple symbol possibilities. So I set up a spreadsheet to calculate the checksums while I gradually resolved the ambiguities. After a couple of hours of work I managed to find the solution that fitted all the constraints and happily it passed the geochecker.
It took us a couple of minutes to find this one, as we'd been searching the wrong one to begin with. Another one for Bobcat so that puts him in the lead 3:2.
Oh and another FTF - I'll add a favourite point for this as its a really good puzzle.
