FIRST TO COMPLETE THE PUZZLE IN UTAH, USA.

Hi all.
We are a small family group from Salt Lake City, Utah. We started working on the puzzle sometime in February and just finished the puzzle after nearly 7 months of working on it on and off!!

This really is exciting for us, as the largest puzzles we had done before this one were only about a thousand pieces. We have yet to mount the puzzle, but we have been using sheets of contact paper to keep the pieces together once we finished each section. Thanks to everybody who posted tips online for this puzzle!! You all really helped us out! We plan on mounting it in the coming weeks and will be posting pictures soon.

We did the puzzle in four different sections, as our working space was not big enough to allow for the whole thing. If we ever did it again, I would consider doing it all at once though.

We had help from a lot of family members in small amounts, but the vast majority of the work was done by my brother, Christopher, and me.

After finishing the puzzle, we've just found that we had one piece missing. We are currently in the process of obtaining a new piece from Educa to replace it and will let you know when we 'officially' have all 24000 pieces!

This was very exciting for us to finish. Thank you for all your help.

- James Huffman
