DC Sights / Scavenger Hunt?

A couple of years ago, I participated in a very fun scavenger hunts run by the rocking girls over at Road Chix. The first concerned little (or at least lesser) known tourist spots in Washington, DC. The second was all about finding art in public spaces. We got an iZone camera in order to take pictures of team members at each site (no splitting up allowed), and tried to collect as many as possible within a specified time frame (feet and metro only – no cars, cabs, bikes, roller skates, skateboards, etc. allowed).

And now that spring is soon to be sprung, I was waxing nostaligic for those scavenger hunts, and wondered if that’s something anyone would be interested in doing again? I’d be happy to pull together a theme and targets, but only if there would be participants…

    I did a few of these when I was a teenager and some similar auto-challenges. More recently, I have been geocaching with my own kids which is a pretty good substitute due to the variety of caches and the places they are hidden.

    Have fun

    Count me in, too. When I was in high school, my youth group did something similar – we split up in teams based on our grades and had to answer questions about stuff in the city. Some of them were easy, like what phone number to call if a parking meter is broken, but some were really hard, like locating a specific painting in a museum.

    I would absolutely love to do this. It’d be an excuse to get out of the house lol.
