SCAVENGER HUNT: Major Bore Has More That You Can’t Ignore For Round Four

Towering over The Reckless Mr. Bing Bong is a WATER TOWER.

Lake/Pond (Here’s a little theory of mine: Minnesota counts ponds like this when it claims to have 10,000 Lakes.)

Red Flowers

Sports Scoreboard

Road Hazard (I used the hazard as a launching pad. Sweet jump!)

Not only is this a WATER FEATURE at the swanky golf & country club, but it is also likely to be one of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes.

Electric Substation

A Service Vehicle that takes “Pride in Service.”

Post Office Deposit Mail Box (and a fleet of service vehicles that “Deliver For You.”

Three Dog Houses, presumably for each of their three dogs.

Foot Bridge over the Vermillion River.

They don’t make Teeter Totters like they used to. Seriously? Springs?

I’ve still got three more items to find for Round Four of Rich’s excellent Scavenger Hunt – – a brick street, a mini liquor bottle, and a stack of bricks. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to find them here in MY Town. Therefore, I’m thinking I’ll have to make a trip over to Wisconsin again. That state only discovered pavement a few years ago, so there is sure to be plenty of brick roads among their many miles of dirt and gravel roads. And Green Bay Packer fans love to swig and litter mini liquor bottles all over the countryside. Stacks of bricks should be no problem in Wisconsin either. You can find stacks of all kinds of things in backyards over there — firewood, beer cans, deer carcasses, appliances, etc.

After I find those final three items I can start looking for the extra credit stuff.

Bonus Coverage From MY Town’s Weekly Newspaper

MY Town’s Local Weekly isn’t exactly Johnnyon-the-spot when it comes to timely reporting. This article showed up three weeks after the event, and two weeks after Scott & Rocky stayed at the very same motel in the article. (highlighted in yellow) When I sent this to Scott, he replied, “What kind of town are you running there? If we had known that, we would have moved on to the next town.” I don’t blame him. That would be seriously creepy — especially if it turned out they stayed in the same room as the deceased. I sincerely hope, on the entire way to Rome, that they don’t have to spend a night in any other hotel in which a suspected murder has recently been committed.

Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

    Good luck on Final Three! I’m betting Wisconsin will come thru for you. An excellent collection of photos!
    That is pretty amazing about the motel — turns out, the motel Bill DIDN’T stay at here, had a homicide a little while later. And the thing is, the guy who was shot was NOT the intended victim!

    There are so many shootings around here (not right here, thankfully) (Champaign, Danville, Decatur, Springfield) we have completely lost track of them all.
