I mentioned it in a previous post, but last weekend, March 23-24, I took a very quick journey to St. Louis and back. Between the morning of March 23 and the afternoon of March 24, I solved nine escape rooms. Even for an enthusiast, it felt like a lot, but I have no regrets!
July 29, 2018 – After staying just a bit too long in Philadelphia, I was on a tight timetable to solve an escape room in Delaware and catch a bus to Washington DC before the night’s end. Thankfully, Axxiom has a few conveniently placed locations along the nearby public transit routes, so we had an opportunity to complete the state.
May 27, 2018 – At long last, I had reached the final point of my road trip through the midwest. Chicago to St. Louis to Kansas City to Tulsa to Omaha to Sioux Falls, all before heading back to Chicago. My poor car had to get back to back oil changes with the mileage I put on it. But it was well worth it- both Escapades and the town of Sioux Falls were extremely memorable.
No, this post title isn’t an Antarctica-themed escape room. It’s a summary of my weekend. Christina and I hit the road right after work Friday and headed north, despite warnings of a serious snowstorm.
May 27, 2018 – I had a magical day on the way to Get Out Omaha. My route took me through a few small town south of Omaha, one of which (Plattsmouth) required a journey across a long, narrow toll bridge meant for only one car at a time. I grabbed a late breakfast at Mom’s Cafe in town, trying an omelet with gravy (very different!)
February 9, 2019 – There’s a lot to cover in this post. Not only was my visit to Escape Room Ensenada my 300th escape room, but it was also the first time I attempted an escape room in a non-English language. The rooms I completed in Singapore and Japan were English-friendly, so this was a completely new challenge for me.
May 26, 2018 – No time for rest as I headed onward from Kansas City. In a last minute judgment call, I decided to push forward to tick Oklahoma off my list of states. My original plan was to dedicate a trip to flying into Dallas and driving from there to Oklahoma City (cheaper than flying directly to Oklahoma City). But I had the time and relished the opportunity to get ahead of my planned pace for 2018.
May 26, 2018 – After staying overnight just southwest of St. Louis, I started early toward Kansas City, double and triple-checked my map to confirm Tick Tock Escape was in Kansas, not Missouri, and mentally prepared myself for day two of my whirlwind journey across the midwest.
June 9, 2018 – Tigard, Oregon was the last stop on a trip that started in Anchorage, Alaska. This was easily the longest trip I took in 2018 (the only one more than a week), but it was also a candidate for most memorable. Stumptown Escape Games was a fitting endcap for the trip, leaving me with some great memories and a wish to return to try the other rooms.
June 8, 2018 – The Celebrity Millennium dumped my family and me off in Vancouver, and after a hike across Vancouver and an eventful Greyhound bus ride (a story for another time, titled “Poodunit”), I arrived in Seattle. My plan was to grab a rental car in Seattle and catch an escape room south of the city, and Tacoma seemed like a great candidate.
