Vegas: Tough Start

June 27, 2021 Brian Gondek 0

I’ve flown a lot over the past few years, and my flight to Vegas edged its way into my top 3 awful experiences. Story time!

Eight Under the Arch

This past Saturday, I topped my personal best number of escape rooms in a single day, changing that number from seven to eight. It’s a coincidence that both of those runs happened in St. Louis, but a fun coincidence.

End of the Journey: West Again

It’s hard to believe we hit the road from Stamford only two days ago. We only stopped at one escape room and one Geocache along the way, but we also encountered a few scenarios that prove life is ultimately one big puzzle to solve.

Exploring CT: A Full Weekend

It’s usually a good sign when I’ve been too busy to write, that I’ve had a lot of adventures in a short period of time. But on the verge of a trip back from CT to IL, I want to tell the story of last week, albeit briefly, before I start focusing on this next chapter!

Odyssey to the East: Day 2

I’m a few days late in completing this recap, but better late than never. Day 2 of our drive from Chicago to Stamford was just as eventful as the first, with one escape room, a few famous sites, and more rainy driving than I care to revisit.

Day 1: Illinois, Indiana, Ohio

I’m writing this update from a hotel in Youngstown, Ohio. So far, our trip has been a little bit on the harrowing side, but only due to the weather conditions on the road.

Odyssey to the East

Stamford Connecticut- I’ve been there once in my life, for about an hour and a half. And now I’m going back for a much longer period of time.

4 Days, 6 Escape Rooms

January 5, 2021 Brian Gondek 0

I can’t imagine a better way to start the year. By the end of the day on January 4th, I had already completed 6 escape rooms, with only one of them in my home state of Illinois.

On the Road: Springfield, MO

Jan 2, 2021 – Christina and I hit the road for the first time in a while to head down to Springfield, MO. In 2018, I passed near here on my way to Tulsa, but I hadn’t thoroughly explored the area.
