Casting call for Global Scavenger Hunt
Oakland Tribune ^ | 12/27/2009

Applications are due Jan. 9 for teams interested in participating in the sixth Global Scavenger Hunt. The "Amazing Race"-like competition takes 25 teams of two people each on an around-the-world adventure.

Teams selected from the entries will not know which 10 countries they will be traveling to. The event starts April 9 somewhere on the West Coast and concludes May 1 somewhere on the East Coast.

National Geographic has called the event "like 'Survivor', 'The Amazing Race' and the 'Eco-Challenge' all rolled into one, except with much more cultural interaction." Experiences include things such as swimming with baby elephants, learning to cook from a Michelin-starred chef, partnering on an authentic archeological dig and helping out at a Tibetan refugee camp.

As long as it's not a plane.

They don't know where they're going? Let's see, Tibet and baby elephants, oh, Canada!

None of which has anything to do with the actual scavenger hunt.
