The Dark Place - 4/30/19

I'm stepping away today and providing you with another post from my back-up puzzle
picker Ol'Fogie:

Today’s Tennessee puzzle is a tale of horror around the small town of Reliance.
The description is creepy, but the cache itself is downright freaky!
Be sure and take a look at the image gallery for this one and, yes, the spiders and scorpions are real.
We made a point to do this one at night for full effect and it was one of the most bizarre finds
I’ve ever had. If you ever get down around the area and want a truly spooky cache, be sure and visit...

The end? - 4/28/19

Today's puzzle takes us to North Carolina.  If you're following Game of Thrones on tv, tonight feels like a pivotal episode. I'm worried that for more than one beloved character this may be the:

End of the line.

Let's Start at the Beginning - 4/22/19

After solving the Australian Easter puzzle I featured yesterday (which I know that I had failed to solve in at least one prior year when I looked at it) I decided to look at some of the others in the same series, and found a fun variety.  I've only just gotten started but I expect I'll be sharing quite a few of them with you.  It all starts here:

Happy Easter! - 4/21/19

Today I send you to Western Australia for:

If you prefer a Passover -themed puzzle I can suggest checking out Passover Trilogy #1 in Israel.  I gave the whole trilogy a look on Friday but haven't sorted them out myself yet.

Paris - 4/17/19

After the terrible fire at Notre Dame this week, Paris has been on my mind a lot.  It was my mother's favorite city and I was thrilled to be able to pay a visit there a couple of years ago, my first in almost 35 years.  Despite the destruction, there is a huge sense of relief that no one was killed, and that rebuilding is possible.  I had a great time caching in Paris and have featured a number of  its puzzle caches in the past.  Here's one I had on my solved list that I wasn't able to get to while I was there:

Forward March! - 4/13/19

Yesterday's puzzle was a pretty tough one, so I'll make up for it by posting this one from central New York today.  Having served as a member of my school's marching band, I am quite familiar with the music of this composer/band leader.  One thing I've never forgotten is our director always telling us that the highest paid member of his band was the bass drummer:

Game on! - 4/11/19

If you're anything like me you're super excited about the upcoming final season of "Game of Thrones."  I've been madly binge-watching the previous seasons trying to get ready for Sunday's premiere.  I'm not sure if I'll make it through all seven in their entirety, but I'm giving it my best shot.  I expect that over the next few weeks I'll spot a number of new themed puzzles in honor of the big finale, and I might even write one myself to cap off my own "Game on" series of puzzles here in New York.  I hope you'll indulge me for sharing one of them today.  If you haven't tried my series, there are a lot of different kinds of puzzles, and no knowledge or research into the TV show is required, and it won't spoil anything should you decide you'd like to see what all the fuss is about.  They can be done in any order, except for the last two (#10 and #11). Have some fun with:

Think Spring - 4/8/19

Today's puzzle takes us to Rhode Island.  This weekend felt like the end of winter's hibernation in Ithaca.  Green shoots of flowers are starting to make their way out of the ground and everyone in my neighborhood was out taking care of spring yard cleaning chores, many of which had been postponed from months ago when our winter got off to an early and vigorous start.  I took my Christmas lights down (don't laugh ... my neighbor still had a browning pine wreath on her door) and we got all of the dead ornamental grass hacked back so that it can be replaced by new growth.  It felt good to be outside, and I'm hoping the decent weather is finally here to stay.  I'm ready to:
