What will our sleepy little town do now?

 

Well, they say all good things must come to an end; I guess they are right. The scavenger hunt I have posted about a couple of times has finally came to an end. The Money was found. Now there are a lot of people left wondering: “What do we do now?” They have spent the last three weeks watching and waiting for clues and searching all night and day in some cases. 858122_558889080788992_332512874_o

It has been a wonderful experience for the most part.  Of course, there were some that weren’t paying attention to anything but the fact there was money out there somewhere.  There was some damage done, but over all very minuscule. Something almost magic happens when these guys get together and do their podcast and go live on Facebook. We are just a small town, but when these guys get behind a cause people respond.  They were receiving donations to several different causes and the money pot during all of this.  The money pot went up over $11,000 and someone was doubling it once it was found.  There were other goodies too, donated by the different business around the area.  They hadn’t done all the arithmetic at the time of the live announcement of the money being found.

Amid all the searching everyone got on board with picking up litter as they went along. Next thing you know, that became a contest as well; with a

1st prize of $500 for who picked up the most trash and $200 for the runner up. They had to post photos and videos of them picking up the litter in the areas they were searching  in any of the communities that were in the area listed in the search.  Now we are all waiting to see what they come up with tomorrow @Drive Time with DJ & KJ so we don’t go back to being a quiet little black and white town. If you join in tell them “Gecko” sent ya.

 

 

 

SMALL TOWN MONEY HUNT!

537429_260631040741138_1944516921_nLife in a small town can be so fun at times.  Our latest ‘hoot’ is a hunt for money. ‪ People watch the podcast HERE

They listen for the clues and then go searching where they think the clues are suppose to lead them. Our town has been “a buzz” with people hunting the stash.  Funny thing is, it hasn’t been verified that the money was hidden in our town.  There are several towns that the money could have been placed.

The pot keeps getting bigger as more and more businesses and individuals contribute. Last total I saw was $7850. plus all kinds of other goodies from local businesses.  It is truly hilarious at time watching comments on Facebook  Drivetime with DJ and KJ

It has been confirmed that the stash is not at our town’s Welcome Marquee/message board.  This particular area has been searched extensively and it was annouced on the broadcast today that it is NOT there.

If nothing else, the community has been getting a lot of exercise running around everywhere in a mad dash to find the cash.  Unfortunately, some aren’t listening to what has been said and have forgotten to be considerate of property causing some unnecessary damage to plants and other things about town.  It has been stated that the stash is in plain sight and you do not need shovels or any other tool to get it.  There is no hazard involved in obtaining it.  It is not inside a business, not on private property and definitely not in a dangerous place. That being said STAY OFF THE RAILROAD TRACKS!
