One of the things I love about having a Garmin is looking at the maps it generates when I’m done with my workouts. However, I don’t usually share them here since many times my runs start and end at my house. I wanted to share a little map fun since we were put on technology blackout during our day yesterday – no phones, no pictures… I may find some on their website later to share.
Yesterday with our fun Mouse Adventure day, I clocked our mileage. I only stopped my timer when we sat down to figure out puzzles, so it tracked us for most of the game that we played. We were going for about 4 1/2 hours including walking back and forth from the parking lot – totaling over 7.5 miles.
Here’s a zoom in of California Adventure. As you can see, we did a lot of back and forth and back and forth.
The weather yesterday was pretty hot. I think we all managed the heat pretty well and no one seemed to overheat. Apparently there were two players who did need medical attention because of the heat.
While the day was fun and the quests were challenging, we didn’t win anything. We probably weren’t even close, but it was a fun day (with only a little bit of arguing – seriously, how do people on the Amazing Race do these types of things and not argue). The people who create this game are so creative and the quests are so detailed. One of the quests involved little tile stickers and we had to recreate two different murals in the park and there were letters on each sticker that then spelled out a question. That was one of the most original quests – and my favorite.
We’re finding that we’re pretty good at solving the initial puzzles and then the outcome of the first puzzle is usually a question and then we struggle with figuring out the answer to that question.
Next Mouse Adventures is set for the Spring. No official date yet.
