GBTH III: Mitternacht

Today I came up with a great new name for my cane. It was once Roger McCaney (after my Lowell School pricipal (remember, kids, the school "pricipal" ends in "pal," because he's your pal!)), but a chance intersection in my pictures folder of an image of the cane and an image of a certain Miami-based lion of justice has given birth to the cane's new title: Horatio Cane.

I will now be 8X more badass when using my cane.

Treasure hunt thoughts (my brain seethes with them!): I saw some of the reality show "Treasure Hunt" today, and it was okay. The parts where they actually located and figured out clues was cool, but the show focused more on all the petty drama and alliances and deception and that sucked. My point: treasure hunts should be about the clues, not the people. Also, black light clues look awesome.

And a sneak preview at The Third Great Brainerd Treasure Hunt: Who's up for a midnight start time? Get your glowsticks and maglites ready!

Well, that's the name of the man. The name of the cane is Roger McCaney.

Hortio Caine became Horation Cane in much the same way.

ok the midngiht start time would be sweet if:

1. there wasn't a thing called drunks driving at around 2 am.


2. there wasn't a thing called cops being out more at night. what would it look like if there were 5 teenagers sneaking around someplace looking for a clue and then telling them that we were on a treasure hunt in the middle of the night. hmmm. . .

but it sounds kind of exciting tho. but it doesn't sound like the smartest idea out there.

It should totally be a two-parter. One section during the day, then a few hour break, and then a second shorter section after sunset.
