simple answer- forget about the towel. It will be there if you make it onto the Vogon craft.
If you wait it out (continue typing : wait) the program will state that you stand up. type Go south, then on next turn Go West,.
This will bring you to the pub where you type :buy sandwich.

Ford will buy the Beer and the peanuts.
I copied the following from the link you found
Wait two turns. Drink the beer three times, and buy a cheese sandwich.
Soon you will hear your house being knocked down.
Go east out of the pub, give the sandwich to dog, then go north to what's left of your house.

the bookmark on my computer http://www.douglasad...ns/infocom.html is labeled :that fiendish game.
Just a note about the way this is programmed. It took me a month just to make it to the vogon hold.

Thanks for the advice, love the autumnal photo.  Got as far as the pub then I both of us left our pub to go to my home, to see the remains of it and go and hit Prosser but then I put wait, wait, wait as I did not want to do and then I over did the waiting and ended up dead.

You don't want to wait to long here as the Vogons are demolishing the planet. Ford is going to drop his electronic thumb.
You need to pick it up and press the green button before the Vogons finish destroying the planet.
I may not be back to this forum. If you want further help let me know at http://h2g2.com/dna/...classic/U170775
