Today I have another puzzle for the community. I will warn that some of the hints are obvious while others are not. You'll need a bit of lateral thinking to complete this one! I hope you all enjoy it; and good luck to everyone!
Let's take a journey, an excursion well known; pay close attention, don't fall down the road.
The weather is crisp, invigorating and fresh; it'll help keep us calm, as we recover from stress.
First stop the river, at the rim of the coast; but we need money, for the marshmallow roast.
Grab the horse shoes, a game of pure skill; and listen to the creatures, croaking a will.
Gather by the fire, it's time for the roast; hand me that pamphlet, with stories of ghosts.
The ranger is posted, in his private shack; remember the tallboy, out in the back.
Hint: Maybe it was unfair of me to not reveal how to solve this puzzle since it is in two parts?
Each line carries a striking resemblance, yet a subtle difference.
Hint: Line six is rather difficult.
The word which you seek, is where the ranger sits; synonyms for tallboy, find me one that fits.
