Scavenger Hunt update
OK, we're into August now. How's the hunt going? Have you found more than half of the items on the list for the 2012 Road Trip Scavenger Hunt?
If the answer is "huh?" it's not too late to join in and catch up.
Here's how it works: All travelers are encouraged to enter -- from solo travelers to groups of friends and extended families. We give you a list of 20 items to find during your summer travels. You take a photo of each place or item (with one of your group members depicted with the item).
Go to www.mercurynews.com/travel-hunt to find the checklist of items, plus rules on where you can hunt. You have one month, until 5 p.m. Sept. 5, to submit your entries. Make sure you include an email address and daytime phone number.
