 Where do I end up? (Posted on 2005-03-04)
This riddle gives you examples of "journeys." Your job is to find the rule governing the journeys, or why you end up with a particular destination. I will list 5 examples below. If you figure out the key, please do not give away the solution, but instead, prove that you have figured it out by creating a journey of your own, as well as the Final Destination.

Journey #1:
Start in Denver.
Stay 4 nights.
Fly to Dover.
Fly to Georgia.
Stay 2 nights.
Drive to Raleigh.
Take the train to San Francisco.
Final Destination = Los Angeles

Journey #2:
Start in Delaware.
Stay 4 nights.
Go to Little Rock.
Go to Pensacola.
Go to Hawaii.
Stay there for 3 nights.
Go to New Jersey.
Go to San Diego.
Final Destination = Miami.

Journey #3:
Start in St. Louis.
Stay there for 5 nights.
Go to New Hampshire.
Fly all the way to Singapore.
Final Destination = Phoenix.

Journey #4:
Before you start, your flight is delayed 1 night.
Then off to Grand Forks.
Stay there for 2 nights.
Travel to Lubbock.
Drive to San Antonio.
Final Destination = Anaheim, CA.

Journey #5:
Start out in Cleveland.
Stay for 1 night.
Go to Richmond.
Go to Denver.
Stay for 3 nights.
Go to New York City.
Stay for 1 night.
Go to Lexington.
Go to Savannah.
Final Destination = St. Louis.

I wonder if "Go to", "Drive to", "Take the train to", "Travel to", "Then off to", and "Fly to" mean different things.

All the places are in the United States except Singapore (and possibly Lubbock.  I don't know where that is)

Journey #3 seems the simplest, with only four places, and could possibly be a starting point.

I realize I'm probably not posting anything you couldn't figure out, but the significance of the flight delay in Journey #4 has the potential to keep me up at night.  However, I didn't want to post that by itself.
