New hiking trail series and a Scavanger hunt.
There has been much happening in the last few weeks. Some interesting and some not.
Groundspeak has added a few new features and a few things have happened locally to make things a little interesting.
bikephotog finished a power trail. One up in the mountains north of Vernal and Roosevelt. You will not have a regular time at it however. All 150ish caches are a hiking series on the trail up to Eccentric peak at 12200 feet. Quite the experience it looks like
BlueRajah's Scavenger hunt
Those who are interested in waymarking, there is a new game available. Waymarking has instigated a scavenger hunt. You can run a little program that will create list of waymarks from an area that you define. 5-10-15 mile radius, and then send people on a hunt to find them.
You can select a start day, and everyone can start the hunt together. A fun game perhaps for activities. As people complete the scavenger hunt they can upload pictures online to prove that they completed the hunt and giving them a running total.
I created a 50 waymark scavenger hunt and will be giving a prize out to the winner. I will start with a geocoin, and add one every so often here. We will see how long it takes to get a first to complete the challenge.
You will have to upload a picture of yourself at each waymark. So make sure you plan ahead, and if it is yours, you will have to revisit the location, and post a photo.
Make sure that you sign up on the waymaking site and track the progress of the others.
