NOTE:  When you click the link below and choose print, you will receive a “pocket-mod”-style printout.The list prints on one piece of paper. After a few magical cuts and folds, you will have a small, portable booklet. In the above two images, I have bisected and reoriented the sections of the pocket-mod so that you can preview the content.

  1. Wow! I wish I had the time to join the hunt. I can’t wait to see how it all works out. Good luck to everyone on the hunt!

    • I’m glad you like the idea. If you happen to snap a few pics that would work, feel free to send them to me. A gallery doesn’t have to be complete to be fun. (Heck, mine isn’t even close … yet. I still have hope that I’ll find a whole day to go play.)
