So fun to listen to this! and so weird because just yesterday I was thinking about The Muppet Movie Game. More specifically, I vaguely recalled a blog post about scouting locations and their saying it's good to get lost.
A couple of weeks ago I took a hike with my dog…oh yeah, it was during Blue Angels Sunday. I had parked my car at a friend's house in Sea Cliff the night before and walked home about 4 miles. The idea was, I'd walk out the next day and get the car. But then – the entire Richmond district was a parking lot as everybody was leaving town after the big show. So I turned around and walked home through the Presidio. At one point, I had a choice between taking a road I knew, or a little social trail that kinda meandered off sort of in the right direction, and which I vaguely thought I knew where it would come out. I took the social trail …and it didn't come out anywhere near where I thought it would, so I just wandered in the general direction of home. And on the eway I found THREE sites that would be great for staging clues – including one that is absolutely awesome. Totally made my day!
I plan to get lost more often in the future 🙂
