Join που with καὶ σὺ (‘thou, too, doubtless knowest’): cp. 948παρουσίαν μὲν οἶσθα καὶ σύ που φίλων, κ.τ.λ.” Since he has a definite spot in mind, “που” would less fitly be taken with “θάμνοις”, as=‘somewhere.’

The v.l. μοι is inferior. As an enclitic, it could not go with the following partic. (‘hidden by me’). It could only be a kind of ethic dat. with “οἶσθα” (as nearly=“σύνοισθά μοι”).
