I am back this week with Puzzle #78, “Where Did You Go?” ***UPDATE: One aspect of the puzzle wasn’t well-enough researched; I have altered one clue (for 61-across) slightly, which will hopefully make things a bit clearer.
The answer to the metapuzzle is a something you might say after being abandoned (as you’ve been by the vowels in some of this puzzle’s clues.) Submit your answer using the contact form by 11 pm Pacific Time on Monday, October 5. I’ll post next week’s solution – and maybe a new puzzle? – next Tuesday.
