“Heck yeah. Out at my dad’s house when he had a farm, my parents would set them up for us with clues and candy to find new toys or just for fun.”

“I did when I was in middle school for our church. I don’t remember much about it except that a lot of people cheated when we had to take a picture of a mannequin.”

Scavengers are easy to hunt.All you need to do is put little shiny broken things in your trash out and wait.They will swoop in and begin to pick at the refuse.Hit 'em with a spotlight and watch them run.Kinda unsporting to bait them that way, but still funny to watch them scamper away with broken junk tucked under their coats.

Anyone here remember the scavenger hunts the radio station used to put on back in the 80's? Can't remember what they were called, but I participated in a couple....I think one year the final clue was located in Dad Perry Park?

Hey Carol: I used to own a really old Dodge Dart...but I don't remember a scavenger hunt, but again there is very little I remember back then...the timing is right though.

Anybody remember the move "Midnight Madness" from the 80's? It was awesome, not like the crap they try to pass off as movies today. Now there was a scavenger hunt (of sorts).

I went to school in Pittsburg Kansas and we had to find the rat. I found it in LeRon's window.We had to find Young Guns and it was in a pair of Travis' pants. We had to find Jake's inflatable banana and it was in a room I never found. We found Amber's panties in a bag of doritos. And we found Patty's stuffed dog in the laundry room.However we never found Mr. Jamiez's socks. We also never found Earl's grill.

We have raccoons, and we try to kill them. Does that count as a scavenger hunt?

I was too young for kiddos back then. I was still in HS. But I have heard of a lesbian mama who had a car like mine. She dated had dated someone I knew. She was not a kind
