A Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt

I forgot about Valentine’s Day this year, until Rocky wondered out loud last night if anyone would get her a cookie this year,  Typical – I never remember holidays or special days like anniversaries and birthdays.  I’m a terrible companion and friend, unless folks remind me to look their way.

Prompted into action though, I remembered there’s a Holiday Challenge too, as well as a slew of February Choose Your Own Adventure challenges to be mimicked.  I put together a list, threw in a few personal errands, and set off on my 1st annual Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt.

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    Very good job at finding all those treasures on your scavenger hunt Scott — that is if Suzanne does not take issue with ‘trunk’ vs. ‘stump’. ;’-/

      Oh, I’m sure she’ll be fine with it. She owes me one to atone for her recent rudeness. And did you see that I unwittingly captured a triple M too? Bill Shaneyfelt, who knows everything, had to identify it. I have a plan for the sheep too, once we get a break in the weather. That darn snowman though. Blast that Gregblood, anyway!

        Sometimes you just have to use your imagination, like Lednar, Suzanne, and Emily have done. I know for a fact you have a very creative mind.

    Don’t forget some street art now.

      Oh, right. If only I’d looked into the future a bit, I’d have known that.

    Scavenger hunt indeed. On more than one occasion while snapping Challenge photos I have explained to innocent bystanders, “It’s kind of like an international scavenger hunt on bicycles….”

      That just happened to me for the first time on my Martin Luther King Day ride. A guy came out of his house in a t-shirt and pajama bottoms (on a pretty cold day) and said, “Is there a problem here?” I was taking a picture of a metal rooster sculpture in a yard across the street from him. I explained that I thought the rooster was pretty cool and said that I wasn’t some kind of intruder and I praised him for keeping an eye out on the neighborhood. He seemed to understand–at least he didn’t call the cops or beat me up himself. The worst part of all that is that I never even included the rooster sculpture in my post.

      Ha! I can imagine you telling some worried parents that when we had the ‘kids’ challenge!

    Your list scared me at first because I couldn’t figure out who belonged to some of those challenges… until you made it known it was your to-do list. The cookies looked delicious, too 🙂

      Looks weren’t deceiving, either. My resident taste-tester was appreciative and gave them (I took back two, as a hedge against breakage in transit) the highest rating.

    I’m playing a little bit of catch up here, so just getting around to reading the Valentine entries. Love that large elephant statue. Is that maybe a little subtle hint at your upcoming trip’s location? At least that was what crossed my mind. Wherever you and Rocky are headed, I’m sure we’re all looking forward to reading about your journey and seeing the photos. Glad you got the replacement SD card so you’ll be set to take plenty of pictures! Oh yes, thumbs up for your choice of cookies. They looked delicious times ten. Cheers & happy pedaling.
