[70/365] Bruin Jetsetters, Great Urban Race, Los Angeles, California, USA

A one day Amazing Race - what fun!

Team name: Bruin Jetsetters. Mission: Solve & complete 11 of 12 clues all over Downtown Los Angeles and West Hollywood. Rules: Only use public transportation and foot to get around. Phones, computers, GPS, phone a friend googles all allowed.

This past Saturday, Connie and I, along with our team counterparts: Dances with Wolves (Myha and Jon) set out on an adventure that took us around LA! We dressed up in UCLA gear, and these necklaces (shown in picture). At noon we got the envelope of 12 clues, and got started on figuring them all out with the help of Blackberrys, GPS, and friends. We then mapped it out and headed off! The clues required us to take pictures of various things or collect different items.

We roamed throughout Pershing Square, Staples Center & Nokia Plaza, Santa Monica Blvd. & Highland Ave. in West Hollywood. We utilized bus and subway to get around, and a whole lot of walking/running. Tiring, but definitely a great adventure!
