  • Do I need anything special to complete the Treasure Hunt?
    • All you need is your instruction packet (sent to you when you register) and a pencil/pen to write down the stops (and maybe help decipher a clue or two). Some challenges will ask you to snap and submit a photo, so a phone (with camera app) will help. And all of the clues are within walking distance, so no car required. (Depending on how you get from clue to clue, you could walk up to 2 miles – so a wagon or stroller may be advisable, if you have little ones.)
