“Road Trip (Part One)” Recap [SPOILERS]

Posted on

And the correct answer to the Road Trip (Part One) puzzle was…

FIRETRAIL PIZZA! Firetrail pizza makes delicious wood-fired, artisan pizza from local and organic ingredients out of a mobile roadside kitchen. A number of teams this week submitted FIREHOUSE PIZZA initially before correcting their mistake 🙂

This puzzle combined geography and research with good old-fashioned logical deduction to narrow down where we visited each day from July 12th to July 25th. The final itinerary was:

July 12 – Fort Worth, Texas
July 13 – Indianapolis, Indiana
July 14 – Raleigh, North Carolina
July 15 – El Paso, Texas
July 17 – Richmond, Virginia
July 18 – Atlanta, Georgia
July 19 – Irvine, California
July 20 – Los Angeles, California

July 21 – Pennsylvania (PA)
July 22 – Idaho (ID)
July 23 – Arizona (AZ)
July 24 – Arizona (AZ)
July 25 – Washington (WA)

Reading the yellow squares in order we get the answer: FIRETRAIL PIZZA, the delicious pizza food truck!
