Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – A Summer Trip Around the World, originally blogged [HERE].

The Around the Grid 2 Hunt is now in full swing with a long list of participating merchants.  It’s loosely based on the Jules Verne classic Around the World in 80 Days, and so is lasting a total of 80 days, through September 30.  This hunt is a little unconventional in that you won’t get the LM to the next store on the hunt when you find a prize; you have to use the LMs on the AGH2 website.  The other twist to the ARG hunt is that in addition to a $1L hunt prize, many of the stores also have a $25L Gatcha with hunt-themed gifts in them (the gatcha is optional for the merchants).  I won’t be showing you stuff from the Gatchas, but here’s some pictures of some of the fun $1L prizes you can get from the regular part of the hunt.

Not all the shops are adhering strictly to the historical aspect of  Around the World … but even those who are giving more modern prizes are sticking with the idea of summer travel.  I start out my summer trip in the Skull Pump Ride red and black roadster, the AGH2 prize from NR Designs.  It’s a drivable vehicle that comes equipped with some smoke and fire when you hit the accelerator.  And, man, can this baby fly!

Finding it a little chilly up here in the northern mountains I whip out the mesh hoodie and t-shirt I scored from the AGH2 at Short Circuit.  It captures the around-the-world theme nicely with the world map on the front of the tee.
