A few things I have found:

Password hints for the "Images" folder of each page.

Sal's
Spoiler: show
"hotel tango tango papa. stop. bravo india tango. stop. lima yankee. stop. two oscar Papa uniform five Victor lima. stop.|" which of course leads to [spoiler]"http.bit.ly/2oPu5Vl". This gives the numbers "33.7456, -116.2707", which I believe are coordinates, but I can't figure out the significance of them yet.

Encrusted Crust

The answer to this one likely comes from

a Facebook video about the sauce
on their page, but it, too, is password protected.

the coordinates lead to a rent a car close to a gliding adventure business.

i've tried "rentacar" "luxury" "gliding" "airstrip" but none of them worked

I am having trouble reading the doghouse. Are there keystrokes you can push to zoom in on it?

it's www.hackthisbillboard.com/resources/shamir

i don't get it

also i found something for Sal's car business again

there are a whole bunch of cars for the Luxury Rent a Car, and since "Sal" specializes in scissor doors

i think if we find a car on there that does/can have scissor doors, the name of it is the password

just a theory

a cAR THEORY

THX 4 WATCHING XDXD /s


EDIT: has anyone called the numbers on any of the HTB sites? they might have clues. (my service ran out, so I can't  :-\)

EDIT EDIT: and of course there's another business at the coordinates

"Bermuda Dunes Airport"

fuuUUUUUUUUU

EDIT EDIT EDIT: STOP

I FOUND THIS ON THE LUXURY TWITTER



AND THERES A LINK TO

http://www.desertrac.com

I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE EASIER

Sal's number and the Wheelfree number are both dead ends. I just called Luxury Rent-A-Car, and it went to voicemail.

OK, so we can just take a whimsy guess and say the numbers probably aren't going to be any use to us (at least for now)

also, just asked Dice (the game-masters) on twitter if desertrac.com is just a business, and not any significance to the game

They have 26 yelp reviews, so I feel like they are at least a real business. For the Spaniel+Setter clue, the symbol on a pharoah's crown is known as a uraeus (the cobra), but I have tried "uraeus", "cobra", and "viper", so I don't really know what it should be.
