The Visual Thesaurus Crossword Puzzle: June Edition

Yesterday, June 28th, was the 180th day of the year. (It would've been June 29th, but this is a leap year!) In honor of the day, you'll have to do a "180" to solve the puzzle. If you can figure it out, you might win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt!

This crossword relies on how the Visual Thesaurus links from one word to another to form a chain of synonyms. Use the Visual Thesaurus word maps to figure out how one step links to the next. You'll find that the first and last steps in the chain, when taken together, form a phrase related to a 180-degree turn.

Think you can figure it out? Once you've solved the puzzle, submit the ten links in the chain by clicking here and you'll be entered to win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt! In the body of the message, please include the ten links, your mailing address, and your preferred T-shirt size. Ten winners will be selected at random. Deadline is July 20, 2012. Have fun and good luck!
