Revisiting a Travel Time-Killer!

 

NOTE: It happens every now and then — a few crazy weeks during which time you’re tethered to a tight schedule, leaving precious little time to write. For me, it usually involves a week of travel–like this one. So, with an empty suitcase staring at me from across the room and an early afternoon flight, I’m reposting this item from July 2011, a travel puzzle, in the off-chance you need to kill a little time waiting for a re-routed flight this week. Enjoy!

I’m on the road a good deal this summer for work, and finding the time to work on this project is particularly challenging when my schedule includes a lot of travel.

Like many people, I’ve got a love/hate relationship with travel. I don’t mind being in different cities doing different things, but I’m not crazy about getting there.

Still, travel days can offer large chunks of time to do some badge work, and this time I opted to spend some my time in that truly lousy, old, and uncomfortable American Airlines S-80 on another kind of task.

BADGE WORK UPDATE: PUZZLERS

A task for the Puzzlers badge asks scouts to create their own Word Search puzzle, based on a theme of their choosing, with at least ten words, and share it with others. My theme of choice? Travel, of course.

So if you travel a lot, or love word search puzzles, or want to kill a few minutes without turning to Angry Birds again, this puzzle might be for you. You should be able to find 41 travel-related words up, down, right to left, left to right, or diagonally in either direction. You’ll find all the words listed below the puzzle. If you want to save the image to print out, just right click on the puzzle and save to your computer.

And if you need help with this, you can find me this week at the following airports: Austin Bergstrom International Airport; Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport; and Ronald Reagan (National) Airport in D.C.
