There are all sorts of numbered "things" in parks, such as markers for fire roads, water tank ID's, etc. I suppose you could make a riddle where you had to visit all the sites, find the number, then enter the numbers from various sites into a webpage in sequence. Still, it sounds kind of lame. Half the fun is looking at the junk in the stash. I've worked hard looking for weird stuff to put in stashes. For instance, I came across some Star Trek Voyager bandages at McFrugals. I got a model Razor scooter (pocket size) at Fry's Electronics with (oh boy) real moving wheels. Now wouldn't you climb a hill, risking poison oak and ticks, to get such treasure?
