When my friends and I got out of college, we wanted to go see some of the local area.
One of the things we all decided to do was discover the Adventurous Scavenger Hunt we had read about in the brochures we found for Lakeland, FL.
Since we had spent most of our day time inside the college, we weren’t aware of how hot it was going to be. The scavenger hunt was a walking hunt that was said to take two hours that you did on your own time. It was a guided tour where we used our GPS as the guide. We had to find different things along the way, and because of how it was set up, we never crossed paths with another group. Halfway through the adventurous scavenger hunt, we were all panting from the heat and humidity that was part of Lakeland. Had we been in a car that had air conditioning, we may have been having fun, but we weren’t. We were having some fun, but it wasn’t what we expected. We didn’t want to give up on the scavenger hunt, so overheated and exhausted, we still continued on with our search. By the time we completed the adventurous scavenger hunt, we were ready to get back to the car and continue on with our discovery of the state we were now living in. What was to have taken two hours, ended up being over three, because whenever we got a clue, we stopped and got a cold drink while enjoying the air conditioning.
