I'm going to need a hint to solve. I'm done with line and color logic, have placed a few dots on the 6 C1 and others on the 5 C13 R24.

after line logic
i used edge logic on the 3 clue in r1 to dot c37-38 (you only need the dot in c37 though)
more line logic
at this point r1-4 and c15-45 should be completely filled in
edge logic on the 6 clue in c1 to dot r11-15
more line logic

i am sure there is something i am missing to solve the rest of this but i felt stuck
i will try later when i have another minute (hour) to spend on this puzzle

that did some time to solve, no guessing :)
#13: bugaboo (bugaboo) on Feb 22, 2012
thanks for the tips
i was almost there
you are one of the best at figuring out those not-very-well seen two-way logic steps
how do you do it?
#14: David Bouldin (dbouldin) on Feb 23, 2012
I think I just obsess over it longer than most people...looking for the next move...

"what are the possible ways this can go?"
"what are the results of each?"
"were any of the results consistent?"

i assume it's the same as everybody else...i just pick at it for longer than i should.

Well that took a long time to solve. But so worth the effort. Nice image and wonderful memory-story.
#16: David Bouldin (dbouldin) on Feb 23, 2012
Thanks Teresa.
