The Logical Cache - 6/28/24

Today's Rhode Island puzzle was passed along to me a little over 9 years ago.  I know I had looked at it more than once without making any headway, but since I may find myself in the area later this summer I decided to take another run at:

Geocaching Summer Olympics - 6/27/24

Although my own athletic prowess peaked very early (2nd place 8 and Under Backstroke in our City Championship meet in 1970-something), I have always been an Olympics junkie. As I look forward to this year's competition in Paris I've caught a little of the US qualifying for some of the events, including swimming and diving.  I never tried diving myself, and have only watched it in person at my daughter's swim meets (I have some fond memories of serving as the announcer at a number of home meets).  I had fun going through this Minnesota puzzle, and will probably return to more in the series:

Easy Haiku - 6/23/24

Today we're back in Ohio with a puzzle I shared 6 years ago.  Yesterday's was a toughie, so I thought I'd follow up with something a little simpler:

A note from the original post:  "I'm sure this is the first puzzle I've ever solved while standing in the CO's kitchen, just moments before going out to find it."  A fun memory!  I even wrote my own Haiku for the log:

Muggy summertime.
An enjoyable cache find,
after the quick solve.

Sudoku Symphony - 6/22/24

Today I'm taking you back to a puzzle I featured 6 years ago today.  At that time I had found the cache as part of a super fun group solve, but later on I did go back and go through them all.  I can confirm that you'll need a bit of time on your hands to get through this:

Going in Circles - 6/21/24

Today I have two puzzles for you, one from Pennsylvania and another from Oklahoma. It turns out, they both have the same name and connections to CacheSleuth and me.  I had reached out to ask him for help in implementing a new puzzle cache, and in talking about it I found out he was working on a new cache using his own implementation of something I'd used before (but he hadn't ever seen mine).  It was pretty funny when we also ended up independently giving our new puzzles the same name.  I guess you could say we were:

If you want something done ... - 6/20/24

Not long ago I came across some content that just begged to be in a puzzle, so when my friend CaptainMath asked me about writing a puzzle for a cache to launch in advance of his upcoming Tri-State Treasures event I was happy to oblige:

Size of the Box - 6/18/24

Today's Canadian puzzle had me dusting off some skills I first developed in playing an old adventure game in the early 1990's (I'm thinking it was one of the King's Quest series).  See if you can figure out:

I do too - 6/6/24

I can't remember if this Ohio puzzle was passed along to me, or if I spotted it myself.  But upon seeing the title I wanted to know more because when caching (and puzzling):

After reading the logs I am very curious about the field puzzle as well!
