Last week I participated in GISHWHES 2013. This is the 'Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen.' It's an event organised by Supernatural actor Misha Collins, for the charity Random Acts.
Basically it's an international scavenger hunt formed of online teams who go out and complete the 150-odd tasks on the item list.
Sounds simple, right?
Not when you look at the items. For example, one of the 2012 tasks was to get a photo of "a fully dressed storm trooper cleaning a pool next to a sunbather." Yeah, I know.
So why would you join up to take part in a seemingly impossible hunt?
I joined not only to donate (registration requires a donation of anything from $10 upwards), but also to have fun. And I did. I met some lovely people during the hunt, did things I never thought I would do, and most of all had a great time.
I definitely plan to register again next year for another go!
