Andy Wenzel is the Herald Hunt’s No. 1 fan – This Saturday!

By Christine Dolen | Miami Herald


Andy Wenzel‘s Hunt experiences have turned into a family affair. He hasn’t missed an edition of the Tropic/Herald Hunt in 28 years, and is ready to do it again! He and his wife, Juana Villa, go each year with their daughters, and though they no longer are trying seriously for the win (he’s too busy documenting each competition), they enjoy trying to solve all the puzzles.

“Andy used to take the day after each Hunt off so he could update everything on the website,” Villa says. “It was hard enough for us to compete, and it became un-fun for me. We never win anyway — we’re losers! It’s a lot less stressful this way.”

Andy Wenzel, who makes certain he’s free on Hunt day each year, has won the Wacky Team Name Contest but never the top prize. He laughs as he notes that his record for the Tropic Hunt, the Herald Hunt and the Post Hunt is 0-24. So when is this happening?
