Morse Square - 2/24/21

I had noticed today's California puzzle when it came out, but didn't take the time to go through it until it was passed along to me recently by someone who enjoyed it. See if you can sort out this:

Sarah's Game - 2/17/21

Today's new California puzzle is posted in honor of a good friend of mine. We don't see each other too often any more, but keep still keep in touch regularly.   We've had some very fun geocaching experiences together, and I would love to plan another grand adventure with her to some place fun (and warm) after this pandemic is behind us. When the time comes I sure hope:

Bee Mine - 2/14/21

I shared a puzzle similar to today's featured one from Oregon back in 2015, but it wasn't exactly the same.  One thing I think is really fun about this one is that, unless I'm greatly mistaken, you can get a good view of the in-theme container on google maps street view.  I love it when that happens.  Today is Valentine's Day.  I hope you will:

Following Directions - 2/12/21

I always admire puzzles that seem like they were probably challenging to construct, and I'm betting today's example from Virginia falls in that category.  I had a couple of false starts, but once I got going I found it quite a fun one to sink my teeth into.  It's just a matter of:

Rolling Stones - 2/11/21

Today's Georgia puzzle brought to mind a figment of one of my earliest puzzle-related memories which thanks to google I was able to flesh out.  This is a photo of a 60 piece jigsaw puzzle I had way back in the early 1970's entitled "Frankie and the Rolling Grave Stones":


Apparently it was based on a cartoon called the "Groovie Goolies," which I don't remember, but I did remember the "rolling grave stones" bit and the goofy picture. Try your luck with:

America's Ribbon of Highway - 2/09/21

Today we'll visit a New York puzzle that was passed along to me recently.  Please do keep those recommendations coming! I really appreciate them. Today marks the first time since last March that I'll be teaching a class on campus (albeit masked, and distanced).  It will feel good, but strange, to be heading up the road to campus in the morning.  I can't wait until things get back to normal and we can really do some traveling all across:

Adventure! - 2/8/21

Today's puzzle takes us to Oklahoma, and will send you on a little adventure.  I was either just a little too young or not quite geeky enough to have experienced this type of game in its heyday, but I have had some fun with them over the last few years (in one very memorable non-geocaching example, it turned out that the goal was not to avoid dying, but find all of the different ways that you could die and figure out how to accomplish each death in the minimum number of moves).  Try your luck with:

Super Bowl Sunday - 2/7/21

It's Super Bowl Sunday and while I don't have a dog in this fight, I'll probably watch the game to check out the commercials and just to celebrate the successful completion of the season.  While you're waiting for the game to start you can have a little fun with this Delaware puzzle:

OAK 2305 - 2/4/21

After I complained about having roughly 15 inches of snow on the ground yesterday, mother nature decided that we deserved 6 or 8 more overnight.  So I guess I'd better keep my thoughts on that to myself.  Today's puzzle takes us to downstate New York.  See if you can solve the mystery of:

Troublesome Territories - 2/3/21

Today we'll hang around for another day in North Carolina, following up on the yesterday's "State of Confusion" with a puzzle from its companion series.  In case anyone's wondering how we fared in the big snowstorm, we've got at least 15 inches on the ground right now, although some of that was definitely there before this particular storm got going.  Fortunately none of us had to be out and about today, so we could take our time getting the driveway cleared in readiness to go out tomorrow.  This is about the time of year when I decide I'd really like to live somewhere without hard winters ... maybe some place like:

States of Confusion - 2/2/21

Happy Groundhog Day! With the big weathermaker that's making such a mess of things I'd say there are a lot of states that are in a "state of confusion" today.  So I figured it would be a good time to pay a visit to a North Carolina series that was recommended to me recently.  I'm sure I'll be looking at more of them in the coming days. Today let's try:

Twisty Trails - 2/1/21

Today we have a brand new California puzzle that I enjoyed solving on Sunday afternoon.  Ever since I started trying to write my own puzzles, I always admire ones where you can tell that it took a bit of work to put them together.  This one clearly required following some:
