Ok guys... This has to stop. Razz It's getting way out of hand now. I am having a hard time keeping up with SOLVING the puzzle caches, much less visiting them all. Wink

Another one was just approved and I am aware of two (I believe) that are in the works still...

Maybe we'll end up being some sort of puzzle capital...

You haven't told me if you have solved "Lap of Luxury" yet?

I've looked at it before while caching in the area, but haven't invested much time in solving it yet.

Just great... ANOTHER puzzle to add to my list.

Wow, Duluth is only 491 feet from my home coordinates? That'll make getting to the Breakfast on the 31st easy as pie!

I've had it solved for quite some time. Trouble is I can solve lots of puzzle caches, I just never get the time to always go to the areas they're at.

I think with the longer nights, it's giving people more time to think of new puzzles....but the longer nights aren't helping me solve these puzzles! Or, it can be a one-up-man ship going on...who can create the puzzle that no one can break??? And, where do you get these decoder rings people are supposably using to solve some of them??

What it is (I've talked to some of those involved) is a form of getting even with one another. One puts out a puzzle that is hard, so the next guy has to get back with a harder one.

We just get to experience the side effects of this (good or bad). I'm enjoying it so far - it's keeping my brain active.

Duluth is loaded with some great caches. It's been a busy
Fall for me so I haven't been able to spend much time in
my fav. city. Last night I spent some time in the wee hours,
working on one of the puzzle caches. Pretty rewarding when
one figures it out. Indeed it keeps the brain active. You
guys & gals are a lotta fun! Wink

also depends on the type of puzzle. I've enjoyed the encryption ones I've done. Shoot one of Eskoclimbers I managed to solve and drove the 150 miles to get FTF on (Haven't done that since though).

There's one in town here I helped create for one of KB's caches. I'll admit it's extremely tough to do without a hint, dare I say impossible? I actually had a different motivation at the time it was created as to why it was so hard. I've found myself appologizing to any cachers that have attempted it.

Even with the hints, that one's close to impossible, especially when using dialup internet and a laptop's standard keyboard. But I did it!

Getting out of hand? Well, "color" me sad. Actually, the trick is to come up with a different puzzle. IBcrashen stole two of my ideas before I could implement them. Well, maybe I was lazy AND I don't like admitting that IBcrashen is more clever than I am.
I really enjoy stretching my mind and trying to come up with something that hasn't been done, well around here anyway.
