whoever posted the job notice for Watson Scavenger Hunts, thank you.
I got an interview yesterday and HOPEFULLY I'll be helping set up the Chicago branch of the company. knock on wood.
for the record, has anyone ever gone on a scavenger hunt as an adult? I never got a chance as a kid, but apparently they're fun.

They are fun. I was once an item to be collected in a scavenger hunt. That was even more fun.

I saw this on the news a few weeks ago. GPS users can go here to hunt for around the city. It looks really fun and seems to be good way to explore the city

I've been on a couple of scavenger hunts, but I haven't done it since my teens.
Both of them were organized by a youth organization my friends and I went to on occasion. (Among the activities and events, this place in East Joliet put up the BEST haunted trail every Halloween).
The first scavenger hunt was fun, but the 2nd one we did was different and decidedly cooler.
Here's how it went;
-Each small group would start by picking something from a box filled with things of little value. A comic book, a used pair of cheap sunglasses, a deck of cards, ..etc.
-Groups break off into the neighborhood and try to 'trade up' their object for something else. It could be from some lady working in her garden, to a local store, ..the main object was to keep trading up each consecutive item as much as possible within a defined time period. Like 2 or 3 hours. NO cash could be exchanged.
-At the prescribed time everybody brings back what they've traded up to.
-Judges can decide on the best item found, but most of it was just seeing what people came back with.
The one time we did it turned out great. People were coming back with things like an old bag of golf clubs, a bicycle, a Lazy-boy recliner, ..if I remember right I think we brought back a nice coffee table that night.
