Seriously guys?!? I'm not the best puzzle solver in the world, but to just CTRL-C, CTRL-V someone else's solutions?
There's always asking the CO for help, for one.... But each to his own, I guess!

Half the fun is solving them. The agony is not solving them. There is a balance in creating a puzzle to gie enough information to get started. geowyz and Dreamcachers were masters of the puzzle cache. I like BigBender puzzles as I learn something in trying to solve them.

Back in the day, Geowyx puzzles were our favorites. I remember a longggg time ago, Chicken and i making the trip over to the Houston area with only one goal,,, to find his puzzle caches. Chance Encounter, Blue Blazes, USMorrows, Snoogans, and Dreamcachers also had some fun puzzles. As far as today's hiders go, it's hard to beat a Houston Control puzzle!

 

Like Dhaulaghiri, i hope that an email like this doesn't ever come out. That would be even worse than those travelbug lists that some people share at events.  :blackeye:

Part of the fun of a geowyz puzzle was to get a FTF so you could be listed on his board of honor. I haven't looked at HoustonControl's puzzles in a long time since one of his movie puzzles.  I should check them out before he retires and moves to the country.

I created this one with you in mind, Linden.  As payback, mostly...

Those are the kind of puzzles where I have virtually no idea even where to start (apart from seeing the "hidden" text--but what do I do with it?).  In my wife's home town, most of the caches in the area are puzzles, and with a large number of them I have no idea how to get started.
