Some of you might have heard of pfalstad. He lives in the Twin Cities.
I have been looking at Magic Mirror for awhile now and he even gave me a clue when I first started. The set up to this cache is Magic! I hope to stop and nab this cache on my way to Sprinfield, Mn next Friday.
For those who enjoy a challange, try this one.
Magic Mirror

PS.It.s Near Hopkins Min., off of 169. The fake coords that is.

Dang Cheezehead! Got me looking at pfalstad's puzzles now--spent half an hour doing one on the spot. Now we need a trip to Minnesota AND to Hayward. Add that to the trip we need to make to the Fox Valley and farther NE. Puzzles, puzzles, puzzles!

Am I that stupid or what? All I see here is not at listed coords, go find it. Hint says click on the links but there aren't any. Am I really that bad? I guess so.

No, furfool, you are not. Puzzles just aren't for you. Now with your unplanned vacation, maybe you can work on some of the solves. You already have the solve on one we put out.

"Magic Mirror" appears to be one of the harder ones--the "huh?" kind. Skip it and go on to a nice sudoku (I know, you probably can't do those either). "Click on the links" means any link on the page, not necessarily in the body of the text. Could be the cache owner's profile, could be on something in the "hides" listing, could be anything.

There are enough puzzles out there that you can drop the frustrating ones. Cheezehead even has one out there that no one seems to want to find. Evil or Very Mad

Let's put it this way, furfool . . . you are a first class FTP player!

furfool, you are not alone. Believe me, I clicked on everylink I could think of, and if you look at his profile, there is a link that will send you to a cache that pretty much a Puzzle cache for Dummies guide. And by the way SL, he figured it out in about 2 mins. Rolling Eyes He told me that some day, he might come and get it.

So he watched the same TV show as you. It seems that his puzzles can be just as bad as yours. Guess that headbanging character is moving into my house permanently!

Congrats to Cheezehead on finding this cache over the weekend. Sounds like the hide had a bit of a challenge to it, too. Will you be trying more of pfalstad's puzzles?
