Scavenger Hunt - Isla Style

This is a combination of two lists that Kip(p) had on a while back. Some of these things may no longer be applicable. I may have added one or two of my own. ļ

Let the games begin!

Depending on the size of your party break into group or do as a whole.

Your objective is to find as many of the following items as possible. A digital picture, or the object as deemed appropriate, is proof of your find. Please do not disturb the environment as you go through your hunt unless it is to pick up litter. You set the time limit. Some of this stuff is tough!

Ready, set, go!
