Easy as Pi - 4/30/15

A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to head back down to Eastern PA (or, "CaptainMathLand" as my family knows it) and do most of the "Easy as Pi" series that was put out in celebration of Pi day.  My friend and I stayed overnight to make a little short vacation of it, and we had a great time.  You won't believe which room the hotel gave us ...

Anyway, it looks like I'll have to head back once more to complete the series as there was one late entrant into the geo-art.  Have some fun with

Easy as Pi 03: What's in a Name?

Tomorrow we'll be in Minnesota.

Shell we Puzzle? - 4/29/15

Today's puzzle from Pennsylvania is another one that was recommended to me recently.  The method is straightforward, but I enjoyed some of the unexpected answers and am looking forward to looking at the others in the series:

Tomorrow we'll be in Pennsylvania another day.

Going Postal! - 4/28/15

Today's puzzle is one that was recommended to me from New Jersey.  This is always a stressful time of year around colleges ... students and faculty alike find themselves crossing off the days and counting the hours until the end of the semester.  At least we're usually enjoying some warm sunny days by now.  We have had a few nice days, but this year winter just refuses to give up ... the view out my window at work last Thursday morning is posted below (fortunately, the snow didn't last).  Whatever the cause, my stress level seems even higher than it usually is this time of year.  Fortunately, the weather in NYC when I went caching down there over the weekend was wonderful.  It gave me enough hope that spring will get here eventually to keep me from:

Going Postal!

New York State of Mind, Part II - 4/25/15

Ever since I went to New York City and cached in Central Park a little under two years ago, I've been wanting to go back.  If all goes as planned I'll be there again for a day of caching today, which has me in a:

The Curious Incident - 4/22/15

I always enjoy hearing from cachers who have come across this blog, especially when they send me puzzles that others might enjoy seeing.  Part of the fun is looking up the caches and seeing where in the world they are ... hearing from folks in different countries is always a treat.  Today's puzzle from Croatia isn't the first one I've featured from there, but I enjoyed paying another virtual visit.  Have some fun with:

Don't Do Anything Rash - 4/17/15

With today's Massachusetts puzzle I'm going against some advice my dad was always giving, which was "Don't do anything rash."  I'm actually suggesting quite the opposite, that you do:

Basebile - 4/15/15

Today's Massachusetts puzzle is from a series I first featured quite a while ago.  The series is called "Barf," which somehow seems like an appropriate theme for "Tax Day."  I chose this particular one to commemorate the start of Baseball season last week.  Good luck with:

Tomorrow, another Massachusetts puzzle.

The Word Nerd - 4/13/15

I recently had a suggestion to check out the Massachusetts puzzles of JWCOREY .  When I did, I found that I had featured one of them before, but there were lots of other ones I hadn't looked at yet.  Not only did I find a bunch more creative and fun puzzles, I ended up discovering that this CO wrote the book (literally ... I bought it) on learning to communicate more effectively by having fun with words.  Try your luck with:   

Word Nerd #1: Scrambled Wolves

Tomorrow we'll look at another Massachusetts puzzle.

How Very Odd! - 4/9/15

I recently had an e-mail encouraging me to check out the puzzles by the CO of today's Hawaii cache.  I found that I had featured at least one of her puzzles before, and had fun rediscovering her work.  While working on it I happened to notice geocaching.com's new web page design (why, oh why do they feel compelled to keep changing things?) which had me thinking:

How Very Odd!

Tomorrow we'll return to Minnesota.

Just Do It:

Tomorrow we'll be in New York.

P.S.  Sorry for the broken links recently ...I was traveling all day Fridayand didn't see the notes that came in about fixing it until the evening.   Here is a corrected link.

Firs to Find: The Great Pine Tree Controversy

Saturday's was fixed quicker.  I think the "copy" function on my new laptop doesn't always pick up the things I want it to ... I'll try to check all these links before they go live.  A corrected link for Saturday's is:
