The Great Outdoors Scavenger Hunt: Day One

Tune up your compass and dust off your hiking boots … it’s time to escape to
The Great Outdoors!

I’m so excited to announce that The Great Outdoors (a 1NS story) releases tomorrow! To celebrate, I’ve devised a digital scavenger hunt that’ll take you from the wilds of my native North Carolina to the diverse forests of the Appalachian Mountains, with stops in Charleston and Atlanta to meet our two main characters.

From the air-conditioned, mosquito-free comfort of your living room you can search for clues for each day’s question. Post your responses in the comment field, and on Saturday, March 24 I’ll announce the winner. One entry per question, though I’ll also post a bonus question each day that will give you the opportunity to double up for the day. Good luck, and have fun!

And don’t forget to get your copy of The Great Outdoors!

PS. Spread the word. 🙂

    Ooh, Kathryn. Gold star for you … but I’m not going to confirm (or deny) your answers until I announce the winner on Saturday. 🙂

    Thanks for responding! The next question will be up tomorrow, and will take our focus to the lovely Antebellum city of Charleston, SC, home of Mitchell Weaver, our hero in The Great Outdoors.

  3. Rita says:

    1. How long is the Appalachian Trail? Very long.

    2. How many species of Fir tree can be found? More than one.

    I’m afraid Kathryn is much more informed than I am but my answers are probably right in a twisted sort of way. Good job Kathryn.

    Oh, Rita. So silly … but thanks for taking the time to respond. I’m guessing that you’re not likely to hike the AT?

  5. Michelle says:

    LOL Rita. Kathryn is correct from what I found. The trail is 2,179 miles long and runs through 14 states and there are 2 different species of Fir trees found in the Appalachians

    • beckymoore says:

      Again, neither confirming NOR denying correctness … but maybe I should up the difficulty of these questions. Just sayin’. Thanks for stopping by, Michelle!
