Mother Of All Scavenger Hunts


After a short break from the Big Kahuna scavenger hunt, we're doing a similar length hunt (100 points total!) but shortening the time to two weeks. This should be challenging for any Globetrotter to get a perfect, but we wouldn't be suprised if someone does!

There will be no cash prizes this hunt, only bragging rights.

Good luck!

The (n) numbers in the categories correspond to the notes below:
(1) On a highway. Bumper to bumper traffic that appears to be at a stop.
(2) Shamu, state flags, etc. http://www.southwest.com/about_swa/photos.html for photos of these planes, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southwest_Airlines#Livery for details.
(3) Looking for real flags, not paintings of them on buildings, etc.
(4) Wikipedia entry as a More Info link
(5) More Info link required for verifiability
(6) Either digital or analog accepted
(7) For details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chick-fil-A
(8) The intention is to find a 'real' submarine not an amusement ride or non-submersible. In other words a military or scientific research vessel in open water rather than one in a closed pool.
