Looks like he needs to strengthen those leg muscles!


I make him take the bus when he needs to be someplace that's on a bus route (which is not too many places), but he should have his license by the end of the summer.

The Bird Dog has been working on one for about 2 hours-intermediate level. He says after he finishes it he is going to retire from doing them-this is after he refused to even look at it this morning- we will see what the future holds---

I do this one also, and I blame s4xton (can't think of a reason to blame Kitch here). I've also purchased his Sudoku program from his website, and it's quite a nice little program. I've only been stumped twice by the Times puzzle, and both were fiendish puzzles. Been doing them for almost 3 months now, and I'm hooked - kinda like caching!

I also have to agree, s4xton's cache is reallyyyy nasty! Took me 3 times to find the darn thing!

I'm working on a "fiendish" level Su Doku now-- the easy/mild ones are getting too easy!

The Guardian now has "Sudoku Classic" puzzles on their site:

The difference? These are hand-made puzzles, unlike the computer generated ones in the Times.

I'm already finding that the "Difficult" one is much harder than the more difficult ones in the Times.

Here are the other two S4xton is referring to in FL:

I had to make GCN072 somewhat more difficult that the rest. All three of ours are within 15 miles of Clearwater Beach, so they are easy to get to while on vacation in FL.

Well thanks to all. I had forgot that this one existed out there since I had pretty much cleared the area of all other caches. Not having a reason to go back there I hadn't pulled a query in that area.

Took me about 7 minutes to figure out the puzzle:lol:. From reading the list of finders, I have a feeling it's going to take me longer to actually find it.Mad
