Between Journeys

September 1, 2022 Brian Gondek 0

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.

Puzzler Hunt – Enter the Passphrase

May 29, 2022 Brian Gondek 0

Most of the puzzle hunts I’ve done recently are for bragging rights only, so it’s cool to finally be diving into one with a $10,000 prize. Enter the Passphrase is an active puzzle hunt that will wrap up on June 4th with the huge prize going to the first solver.

End of the Journey: West Again

April 27, 2021 Brian Gondek 0

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.

January Project Update – Final Design

January 24, 2019 Brian Gondek 0

I’ve been somewhat quiet lately despite not traveling all that much in early 2019.  I’m still feeling good about the twelve projects in twelve months goal for this year, and I’m more than excited ever about my January project.  The final delivery might be a bit later than Jan 31, but I can kick off the February project while waiting for the finished items. Christina and I have finalized our design for the January item, and while I want to keep it a little bit of a secret, I’m also eager to tell everyone.  The January product will be my […]

Puzzle #30: Busy Times

I have to open off with a serious congratulations to Scott S., who solve last week’s puzzle almost immediately after I posted it.  I was afraid the puzzle might be a little unfair, but Scott didn’t seem to mind!  With a recent holiday in the books, today’s puzzle is holiday themed.

As I’m approaching my own deadline for putting together a riddle this week (Wednesday before midnight!), a colleague and puzzle enthusiast sent me a big list of rebuses (rebi?) to tackle.  Deadline for my own submission is tomorrow, so wish me luck.  When I finish, I’ll report on how many I was able to solve and you can try your hand at beating my mark.

Major apologies, but I’m caught off guard today and don’t have time to post a puzzle today.  I will be posting a new puzzle Thursday or Friday this week instead!  This week’s puzzle will be for a special prize to make up for the delay.

Tucson, AZ: Escape Room Tucson – Inside Job

September 18, 2018 Brian Gondek 0

August 26, 2018 (flashback) – I didn’t need to solve an Arizona escape room on my visit thanks to my earlier visit to Gray Matter Escape in Lake Havasu (on my Vegas trip).  However, Adil and I had some time before my flight and figured why not add a little to our adventure?
