    My plan when i had what i thought were reliable friends, was to meet at the town's local gun range. And leave a note, if plans changed; in a inconspicuous location.

    Seeing armed people at a gun range isn't out of the ordinary...plus a last minute zero check and gear check might need to be preformed.

    We have several locations which are agree upon alternatives to returning home. Notes can be left at each site if they are not safe places to remain while waiting, NOT conspicuous notes, but coded directions to another location.

    20190114_193905.jpg It functions as a cipher.

    Each quadrant has information and substitutions can be made.

    If i say i am planning on traveling in the direction of 180 degrees, over radio that could be intercepted, we may pre arrange direction to be a month instead. The 6 month is June, etc. June could be used as a substitute for a name.

    If you cut each circle out you could give instructions over radio to rotate the circles into a completely different pattern, creating completely different information.

    Rotate the innermost dial 1/4 turn clockwise, and the outermost dial one half turn counter clockwise, that will create a complete changeup , you can add letters, names, seasons, or other instructions to a specific dial.
    Have i lost my mind or am i making sense?

    A blaze on a tree in this manner may mean i am moving south east, or i am moving to cache location, with a designation of 135. You probably get the idea. You can play with it and create your own cryptography as you like.

    No, that is an excellent approach to code. The more common approach is using two of the same books or book cipher. Your approach would probably be harder or less likely to be broken, unless they've read what you just posted!

    We have some warchalking type symbols in our plan. I think that is a good way to go for leaving messages.

    Ot resembles the clock, the calender ,the globe and the compass rose. It can also be used to find lattitude and longitude with the shadow and stick method if drawn on the ground, similar to the ottoman sun compass.

    It doesn't matter if the person who has it reveals information or is captured, you can create a completely new cipher, every time you use it if you like.

    I like the corsswords books for that. I skip to the back of the solutions pages and formulate a sentence. First number is the page, second number is the letter string across, third number is the verticle string. Then send an image with the file name to your recipient. 48481983736637838384789398938384.pdf ...

    I like the image coding as well. You can get tricky with that.

    Absolutely man, how many people ever take the time to read a file name? It only appears like system storage. You can do it with printable QR codes as well. Pretty much anything you want. Kinda ridiculous, the amount of information you can put on a QR code and put on a billboard at the grocery store.

    My favorite is the stacked deck of cards...
    8K3102795Q416J

    And it has a memorization poem.
    Eight
    Kings
    Strives (three)
    Ten
    Two/to
    Save
    Ninety (nine)
    Five
    Queens
    Four/for
    One (Ace)
    Sick (six)
    Jack

    Alternate down the list:
    Diamonds
    Spades
    Hearts
    Clubs

    The cards will have no apparent order, this system allows you to predict your opponents hand if you want to count cards (stacking the deck) and still works even if the deck is cut.

    Values such as numbers and letters can be added to create a message, list, or instructions. A game of 52 pickup destroys the message.

    It is both a magician's scheme for predecting a selected card (while quickly glancing at the face of the card you are holding to find the missing one in the sequence) and a dirty poker player or black jacks trick for winning every hand.

    You don't even wanna know the person i learned that from. Pretty slimy dude.

    Beware the Red queen is all i have to say.... just kidding.

    You're a smart fella. I'm glad we're on the same team, just remind me to never play you at a card game!

    Whatever made the marketing department choose blue as the color for Viagra pills?

    I could make some crude jokes around this color choice, at the expense of both US political parties... There is probably a law against that now.

    Too bad the reds and the blues have combined to make a pink trans-gender jackass.
