It is something we have throughout the day fantasized around eventually in our lives: taking place a the real world, straightforward to benefits witch hunt. Well many thanks to the Cline Family Members (@the. cline.fam) and also John Saying (@onthejohn) most of us in the Wasatch array reached endure that desire.
The 2021 Utah Treasure Hunt obtained most of us thrilled for a various sort of searching than we are usually discussing right here at Bakcou. This witch hunt was uploaded on instagram and also would certainly lead the fortunate champion to a timber breast full of $10,000 in cash money.
Like any kind of great witch hunt we were provided ideas to the area of the 10,000 reward. The mian hint was given up the type of a rhyme uploaded on instagram. It broached black birds, bears constructed from rock and also the stunning sights you will certainly come across right here in Utah. Nonetheless, it was quite puzzling and also left me damaging my head at where to also start.
With many prospective locations it was a challenging job to trek the myriad of routes that criss go across the hills in our location. Which’s when I kept in mind where I function … It’s difficult to think about a lorry much better fit for this search than a harsh and also challenging, sturdy eBike. So I obtained 2 of our bikes from job and also headed out to hit the road with my good friend, and also with any luck strike it abundant.
My good friend Zac and also I chose we would certainly begin the search by increasing Ben Lomond, the highest top right here in Utah. We did it using the sky line path, a 16.3 mile out and also back with 3,755 feet of altitude! We laid out all packed with hope, with our eyes peeled off searching for rocks that looked anything like bears.
that’s a bear right?
Utilizing eBikes for the witch hunt made it extremely simple to obtain all the materials required, a lot of food and also water and also huge bags for when we needed to carry back the $10,000. The eBikes likewise made fast job of the high and also technological path. Permitting us to make strides promptly and also effectively.
When we made it to the top of Ben Lomond, Zac and also I looked amazed at the valley under us. We are so fortunate to reside in such a gorgeous area with “sunlight kissed reds and also salted blues”. Sadly we had actually not located the prize on this path. However we were currently conceptualizing where to browse following with the bikes.
We were both combing maps and also asking every one of our regional buddies their viewpoints on where to go following. And also equally as we were completing prepare for the following prize searching experience we saw the blog post … the prize had actually been located. On a route simply southern of Salt Lake, Andy Swanger (@ajswangblades) had actually located the breast.
Unquestionably I was quite bummed in the beginning, yet simply having the ability to belong to a witch hunt was such an enjoyable experience. I reached research maps of the location with buddies, top a beautiful top, and also imagine concerning what I would certainly make with $10,000 (get even more bike things undoubtedly). And also hello in 2020 the reward was $5,000, this year it was $10,000, following year the $15,000 will certainly be mine!
Many Thanks once again to John Saying and also The Cline Family members for developing such an awesome experience. Also to all us vacant handed people, I understand we enjoyed obtaining outdoors and also discovering even more of this stunning location of the globe. Currently I simply need to encourage the one in charges at Bakcou to place on something comparable …
