Remember Thror's map? [In reply to] Can't Post

The map had directions to a secret entrance into Erebor. In moon letters, it is written:

"Stand by the grey stone when the thrush knocks, and the setting sun with the last light will shine on Durin's Day will shine upon the key-hole"

Luckily, the company got to the Secret door by Durin's Day. As the sun setted, the thrush cracked a snail against the stone, and the key hole appeared.

I hope that makes sense?
