October Scavenger Hunt

Sunday, November 04, 2012

Last month on one of teams I'm on they added a scavenger hunt to our monthly mileage tracker. I must say it was quite fun. Normally I do all my walking on a logging trail, so not much to see besides nature (and the occasional WILD cows). This hunt got me out of my comfort zone and out riding my bike more. Ended up on several trips to the gym on my bike just to make sure I could get in and see all the items while getting in fitness minutes.
Here's the first list.
A mailbox
A yellow car (OK, it's a truck)
A playground or park
Speed limit sign
City or school bus
For sale or lease sign
wildlife (decided not to use the cows)
Ended up skipping a week, then I went on vacation, but since I had so much fun , I decided to continue on, even though the list got harder.
your neighbor
your countrys flag (and of course my Teams flag) GO DUCKS!!!
a fire station
something orange (I walked to the store to take a picture of this package)
A fence (and something orange)
a 2 door red car
fire hydrant
a school
a political sign
a stop sign
a delivery truck (do you know how hard it is to take a picture while riding your bike of a moving vehicle? LOL
someone being active (this one made me feel kind of creepy, taking pictures of other people)
The one I did not get a picture of is a black cat. Saw them twice, but once they saw my dog, they were gone!! The one I never got to see while being active was a firetruck.
Thank you for this great idea. It took me out of my comfort zone, and had me being more active than usual to get out there and find these things. Great idea!!

LOL you took my scavenger hunt to a whole new level with adding pics!

Good work! I'm glad you liked it & pushed yourself out of your comfort zone.
