National Puzzle Day - 1/30/23

Today's puzzle takes us to Utah.  Since the holiday was yesterday I'm a little late with this one, but I stuck with my idea of a weekend rerun and took the extra time to finish up:

Let it snow! - 1/27/23

I know many folks have already seen today's California puzzle, but I enjoyed it since I've been contemplating making a similar one myself.  Not to mention that for the last few days around here it's like someone all of the sudden decided:

Welcome (again) to Walton - 1/22/23

When I worked on today's West Virginia cache (now archived, but featured here 11 years ago today) I thought it was such a hoot that it inspired one of my own puzzles.  Enjoy:

Biplanes - 1/20/23

Back in the early and middle years of this blog I often tried to post nice and juicy, tough puzzles on Fridays.  I haven't had the time to invest in solving as many of those lately, so that has slacked off in recent years.  But I tested this one recently and found it to be pretty neat so I figured I'd go ahead and share:

An AI Generated Puzzle - 1/18/23

Today's puzzle takes us to Texas.  Monday was the annual wrap up of the MIT mystery hunt, which I've participated in the last several years.  Although the hunt was in person again for the first time since 2020 (I'm so glad I went to Boston for the hunt that year!) I decided to contribute remotely this year.  I was concerned about weather-related travel problems and knew from experience that I'd find the hunt itself exhausting.  Part of the theme for this year's hunt was the premise of:

My team ended up winning the hunt (I played a very small role ... there were >150 people on the team) so that means we'll be tasked with writing next year's hunt.  I'm not sure what my role in that will look like, but I do hope to be able to contribute.

I don't have my own copy yet, but this is what the coin looked like:

(Probably Not) A Final STNolan Puzzle! - 1/13/23

Minesweeper - 1/12/23

Today's puzzle takes us to Oklahoma.  I'm not going to say how many tries it took me to get through the non-handicapped version of this game ... but it was ... a lot.  And I think I had my first ever literal head-slapping moment (it's still smarting as I write this post).  See if you can beat the clock in:

Shields of the First Age - 1/7/23

Over the last few years I've considered making reruns a regular feature, and now that we're in year 13, I'm going to go ahead and do it.  Weekends have always been the most lightly read posts, so for this year on Saturdays and Sundays I'll be picking a previously featured puzzle to share again.  I expect many, if not most, of these will be new to people who are current readers.  From North Carolina, here's one I shared ten years ago today:

Happy New Year! - 1/1/23

Twelve (!) years ago today I started a little experiment called Geocaching Puzzle of the Day.  In the next few days I'll reflect a little on how it's lasted this long and my hopes for the coming year, but today I'm just kicking off 2023 with a pair of puzzles.  From Canada's Alberta province:

and from my good friend in Pennsylvania (although the cache is in New Jersey):
