Being part of the design team for ERChamp this year has been a unique experience- the annual online escape room tournament has been my favorite event to participate in every year, and now that I’m part of the design team, I can’t play along any more.
The last time I visited Escape.exe, in April 2021, Neon Tokyo was coming soon. After the experience I had in the first room, Site: 117, Neon Tokyo was a must-visit, and the next time Christina and I needed to drive to the east coast, we made sure our path took us past Escape.exe.
I’ve committed a serious violation of my modus operandi today. Nine hours in the car, zero escape rooms, zero geocaches!
It’s nice being back in the swing of things with travel. Only a few weeks after circumventing Lake Michigan, we’re hitting the road for a long journey eastward.
Today I’ve finally completed something I’ve had in motion for a long time- starting a business! It’s called Glowing Key, LLC.
With everything that’s going on, and with approaching my 600th escape room, I very nearly missed out on reporting about a neat trip I took recently- a big loop around Lake Michigan, including a trip to Mackinac Island!
Saturday, September 3rd – There was no guarantee I was going to be able to participate in the Great US Treasure Hunt this year. I was excited when Milwaukee was on the list of cities hosting the hunt this year, but on the day of the hunt my wife and I had a commitment to be hosting family at our cabin in northern Wisconsin- nearly three hours north of Milwaukee.
I’m currently smack dab in the middle of my busiest stretch of travel in quite some time, and between travel, work, and outside commitments, this may be the busiest I’ve been in my life. Not even factoring in trying to start a business and repair a barn.
This last week contained my biggest adventure in a long time. After spending a few days in Las Vegas, Christina and I flew to South Dakota and experienced several national parks, including Mount Rushmore.
Yes, this is the worst photo I’ve used on my blog. Blurry photo through windowshades with a too-visible screen. But it’s Vegas!
