It's about time to start thinking about whether I'll be continuing this blog for a third year.  I would like to continue, as I enjoy it and I think there is a small contingent of folks out there that are following along daily.  However, I would like to enlist some helpers for next year, as it takes quite a bit of work to scout out a nice variety of puzzles.  If you'd be willing to be a guest puzzle-picker next year, please contact me via geocaching.com and I will let you know what I've got in mind.  If I can get a few helpers on board, I'll be happy to keep going into 2013.  Remember, I cache as part of teamajk (I'm J).

Mountain Dew - 11/18/12

It shouldn't surprise me any more that there are geocaching puzzles with just about any theme you can imagine.  Today's puzzle from Canada's Nova Scotia province is the result of my searching for a puzzle about a beverage I relied on to get me through graduate school ... not coffee, but Diet Mountain Dew.  My limit was 3 cans a day, though, or I got pretty jumpy.  Recently I spotted the gigantic cans pictured below in a minute mart, and couldn't resist getting some for old time's sake ... perhaps I've rediscovered some new fuel for long days of puzzling?  Maybe after this puzzle you'll be inspired to get yourself some:

Triptych - 11/2/12

When I was growing up, before we took any big trip my parents would order up a Triptik from AAA showing just the route we would take.  I loved flipping the pages as we drove along and got closer to our destination.  With GPS machines and google maps/mapquest, etc., the old paper Triptik seems like ancient history.  Anyway, today I have for you a different kind of Triptych:  a trio of interconnected puzzles from not just one state, but three.  I give you:

Yes, it's Snoopy! - 5/16/12

Back in December I posted an entry titled "Snoopy?" with a puzzle that was part of some geo-art in New Hampshire forming what I thought looked like Snoopy's head.   I recently found out that the artwork has been completed, and wanted to share with you the final puzzle, which includes a great map.  You'll see now that it's definitely Snoopy!
