About Me...Meet The Guru

Hi!  I'm so glad that you've found my scavenger hunt website and I'm hoping that you enjoy this free resource.  Now, a little bit about me and why I'm creating a website...

Why am I into scavenger hunts?

That's a question I'm asked a lot; and it's a good one. 

I've had a pretty eclectic background of experience including being a naturalist, directing summer camps and working with youth groups. I'm a sucker for fun group games and activities. You won't see me sticking anyone in front of the television.

Over the years I've made and used scavenger hunts in a variety of settings so this site has been really fun for me to put together. I've gotten to use my creativity and imagine all sorts of fun clue ideas as I've attempted to gather this collection of hunts.

But wait. Back up. Why a website?

Well, that's an even better question since I have absolutely no background in web design or anything HTML related. Did you read "outdoor educator and summer camp director" in the about description about me? In fact friends and relatives are still skeptical of this journey I've embarked upon!

About a year and a half ago I found myself in an off season between outdoor education and summer camp jobs and I was bored. While surfing the internet I came across a company called Site Build It! that presented me with the idea of building a web business about a hobby or passion. "Everyone knows something about something" was what caught my eye. 

Since I had the time I decided to look into the idea. I started brainstorming my ideas, hobbies and passions. The 100% money back guarantee was a huge selling point for me because who knew if I'd be able to actually create a website? 

I decided that scavenger hunt site would be a lot of fun to put together and it would allow me to be creative while still learning a new skill so I took the leap. I must say, it's been a learning curve! But Site Build It! takes the technical aspect out of it so I can build my pages "block by block" and spend my time focusing on creating more and more fun scavenger hunts. 

So why am I sharing this with you?

Simple: Because I've been so impressed with Site Build It! And don't just take it from me. Check out these videos of other folks who Love SBI!

Site Build It! is far more than a web hosting service. It takes you step by step, via the way of the tortoise their mascot, through the process of determining your niche, putting together a site blueprint and then creating your website page by page.

If you've ever wanted to explore the idea of working from home, creating a website, getting your brick and mortar business up on the web, or just learning a new skill set, I'd encourage you to check this company out. I'm so happy with them that I'm starting my new site Favorite Inspirational Quotes with the help of SBI.

Still more questions? I had them too! Talk to a real live person and ask your questions here.

That's me in a nutshell! And that's how this free scavenger hunt site has come about. Thank you for finding me here in my slice of cyberspace. I hope that you enjoy using these scavenger hunts with your group, your co-workers and your family.
