Geodyssey 3

Bennett Grossman

I don’t remember exactly when I first met Bennett, but I know it had something to do with mystery geocaches. For some reason the names “oraclebennett,” “Serge A. Storms,” and “… and Coleman” also come to mind. I’m not exactly certain, but I believe that they once may have been cojoined triplets.

Bennett is an attorney, and when I asked him to be a part of this puzzle he offered to take the clue sheet to the highest court in the land. In the image at the top of this page, he’s at the Supreme Court of the United States.

What I most enjoy and respect about Bennett is his creativity. He seeks out the wild and wacky and unique, such as the One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest (one of the last few surviving geocaches that are allowed to move), or the Southern Bowl Project A.P.E. cache (a type of which there is only one geocache left, and it’s in a park off the beaten path in Brazil). The caches he’s hidden are equally creative, and all have a good answer to the question “Why did you bring me here?”

Plus, he’s got a knack for witty log entries. Here’s one of my favorite examples: his Found It log on my (now-archived) Treasure Hunt cache: Part 1 and Part 2.

Note to solvers: in the image above, Bennett is holding the same clue sheet in two different locations. Use the four trigrams only once in the solution.
