“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.”

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 woman...lol

Hey wifemotherslave,Did one of your kids fall out of the car while it was moving near the haircut place by where Alvins used to be but The Merc is now? I went to help pick the kid up but someone yelled at me not to go near her. I was walking back from Alvin's with my groceries and the girl just plopped out of the car and skidded half way across the pavement to the haircut/ motorcycle place that used to be there.Boy, I saw that woman twice afterward at least. I do not think she took very good care of her kids.

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).

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.

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?

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.

I was part of one back in 1992. I found a monkey painted on a mailbox. They said it was named after some dude a long time ago in Lawrence. They called it Mickey. I am not sure but it looked like the Donkey Kong character. I was not sure about what all else I was suppose to have found but there was this girl driving an old green Dodge Dart and she had real questionable behavior. It was almost like she stole something from our scavenger hunt.

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.

My whole house is a scavenger hunt, since the workman moved everything a year ago.I make of list of what I need to do, and I spent the next two months looking for the things I know I own that I need to do the task.Anyone seen my electric curlers? The mop? My other pair of sweats? I've been able to find 1, count it 1 pair of long pants for this last winter.

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