Great Escape 2004

GLOBAL SCAVENGER HUNT

For three weeks between April 16th and May 9th, 25 teams of two people each will be competing in the annual around-the-world adventure competition sponsored by the GreatEscape Foundation to win the coveted crown of "The World's Greatest Travelers". I am part of this year's competition with my partner, Harriet Brodsky of Jacksonville, Florida. You will be able to follow our journey around the world visiting more than 10 countries across 4 continents in 23 days. The most interesting element of our challenge is that we have no idea where we are going. Once we arrive at a destination, the teams will receive sealed envelopes containing a list of travel riddles, cultural clues and cryptic passages that, when solved and completed, will lead us to lost cities, sacred sites, cultural festivals, bustling bazaars, ancient ruins, exotic eateries and eventually to prizes totaling $100,000.

I will not only be taking a Blind Date with the World but will also be helping to raise $1,000,000 for great organizations like: Doctors Without Borders, UNICEF, CARE, International Special Olympics, Mercy Corps, Habitat for Humanity International, and the World Monuments Fund.

Check back to this site as frequently as you wish for the latest updates of information and photos of our adventure.
