Treasure Hunt

By January 11, 2008#Life

We are less than ten days away from the St. Paul Winter Carnival Treasure Hunt!! For nine of the last ten years, Jill and I have participated in the hunt. If you find the medallion and fulfill two other requirements (carnival registration and newspaper clue clippings) you will win $10,000.

We have been incredibly close to finding the medallion. Last year was probably the closest we’ve ever been. We were withing a 100 foot radius of its hiding place. This isn’t the first time we’ve been close. I’d say we’ve been close at least 5 years.

The Pioneer Press will start publishing clues January 20th and will continue for 12 days or until the medallion has been found. It’s always a fun experience, especially when it gets down to the last day and there are a thousand people all crammed into a little wooded area looking for it.

We’ve already registered and we’re ready to go! We’ll give updates once the hunt is in progress.
