IZEA Fest 2008 – IZEA Hunt

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I signed up for the IZEA Hunt at IZEA Fest 2008. This was claimed to be the craziest scavenger hunt this side of the Mississippi. The hunt is a timed event with each team of five competing to earn as many points as possible within a 45 minute window. The scavenger hunt include taking photos, videos and finding physical objects. The winning team wins $500 in Home Depot Gift cards. I guess you can use the cards to buy plywood to board up the house in case of a hurricane.

The list of items to get and things to do during the hunt was a mile long. Each item/photo/video was worth a certain amount of points. The team with the most points win. Our plan was to go after all the high point items first and then work our way down to the lower point stuff. Here’s a video of how we did.
