My Juneathon Treasure Hunt List

Thank you all for your suggestions – I fear for the sanity of some of you.

UPDATE: I also fear for the sanity of me. Due to tiredness and being a numpty, I somehow missed a load of suggestions, so I’ve recalibrated the list to an equally untidy 79.

UPDATED UPDATE: Just spotted that we had two badgers in the list, I have culled one but we’re still untidy with 78. I’m not very good at this am I?

    What a list! Are you assigning a day to an item, or are you just hoping to see some of these things along the journey? The chalk one might be ticked off this weekend – seek out a street party, we’ll be giving out chalk for the children to draw in the road 🙂

    brilliant! I like Jules’ idea, we can all try to find hte ‘object of the day’ ?

    Is there that much junk in Lancashire !
    An Olympic torch sounds easy (local knowledge)
    Avoid the exotic animal…

    Hehe what a fab list. You’ll be doing some weight lifting as part of Juneathon then if you have to carry all that lot home. Especially to badger…

    Looks like you have your topics for your blog.
    I really struggle with some of them … Dr Who and a iguana where would you see that?

  6. Lisa says:

    I love your list of treasures, I will definitely be looking for some of these each day on my runs. Considering I’m in the states some may be hard to find. Rhinos are not native to
    Oregon, not sure what a Kentish orchard is, and are we talking a kiwi as in the fruit or the animal? Love the list!!!
