Hints to the Puzzler - 3/4/12
This will be a short post. I just want to give a hint or two about the puzzle from 3/2/2012. I'm talking about the puzzle concerning a certain Mustang and a motorcycle traveling on I-80. If you didn't see this one, go back to your Facebook page and look for that bad boy. First though a short recap. The motorcycle is going 65 mph and leaves New York at 12:00. The Mustang is going 85 mph and leaves San Francisco at 1:00. It's this one hour difference that seems to be confusing folks. Truth is (here's hint#1) when the two vehicles meet (and they do so in Nebraska) the Mustang will have traveled one hour less than the motorcycle. (hint #2) What this does in effect is shift the journey a bit to the west.
