R u ready for this?

In honor of my fabulous husband whom celebrated his 34th birthday yesterday, we will be participating in a very unique race called High Trek Adventure. What in the world is High Trek Adventure you may be asking yourself...or better yet, what are those two up to NOW?

As stated best by the High Trek Adventure's website: Where brains beat brawn! Teams of 2 solve clever clues and face fun challenges all while navigating the urban landscape via foot or on public transportation! It's a scavenger hunt, with all the thrills of the amazing race, mixed in with trivial pursuit, throw in a mini road race and add a dash of cat-and-mouse. And voila! You've got High Trek Adventure!

This race is really a combination of many things: wits, speed, knowledge of mass transit, and socialization with random folks on the street (that's my job!). For my very smart, technical husband this is his game so we are so excited to pair up together in the crazy adventure.

So...while you are enjoying your Saturday afternoon tomorrow, cheer us on in spirit as we will be participating downtown Seattle in the hopes of fabulous cash prizes, a chance to compete in Las Vegas and the thrill of victory. But, I'll admit, we're mainly there to have fun and enjoy the company of one another as we race to the finish line.
