The Case of the Missing GeoDrone - 7/31/16

Today's puzzle from western New York State landed in my in-box recently, and it gave me a grin (accompanied by just a hint of motion sickness).  See if you can help the poor CO who cried:

I Want My GeoDrone Back!!!

Tomorrow we'll be in North Carolina.

Where the Bones Are - 7/29/16

I've recently been getting well acquainted with something I hadn't spent any time with before, and in the process I had a vague memory that I had done a puzzle about that theme a while back.  So here it is, from California:

Guardrail Specifics - 7/26/16

Before I started geocaching I never spent much time around guardrails ... of course now I feel quite well acquainted with them.  I was recently driving along a stretch of road where the guardrail was being replaced (I wondered if a cache had disappeared along with it) and it was interesting to observe the process.  All of the upright posts had been laid out along the side of the road, and you could tell they were going to go along and set each of them before putting in the "rail" parts.  It was kind of neat to see it in action.  Today's Tennessee puzzle will give you a little more insight into:

Views From Orbit - 7/13/16

Today's puzzle finds us in Michigan again, where  I'm hoping my friends and I will be able to make the find on this cache while on our long layover there next month.  The solve was a joint effort ... I was lucky my friend did the hard part going through all the:

Oh no! - 7/12/16

Today's puzzle finds us in Michigan.  In about a month I'm planning a trip with some fellow geocachers out west.  We worked very hard getting our flights arranged, and were dismayed when the airline dropped the mid-day flights to and from Ithaca.  They rebooked our flights and all our careful work went out the window ... we ended up with a particularly long layover in Detroit on the way home.  It's so long that we should have no trouble getting out of the airport and adding Michigan to our list of cached-in states.  That will be cool.  So I guess in the end our reaction ended up being:

00ooo00oh No ? Oh yes!! 

Tomorrow, another puzzle from Michigan.

Tanks a lot! - 7/7/16

Today's puzzle is from Minnesota.  I always enjoy it when people send me puzzles ... either their own, or ones they've come across and enjoyed.  I'd like to put out a special call for clever, fun puzzles that are relatively quick solves.  It helps me greatly to have a stable of those lined up in advance, and my queue has gotten down to almost nothing.  I hope you'll consider sending something my way.  I'd really appreciate it, and in advance I'll say:

Tanks a lot!
