While you’re waiting….

Let’s reset my little contest from last year.

It hasn’t happened yet but I can definitely see the potential. Guess the date when JohnBoy will get bitten by something (other than something common like a mosquito, chiggers or fire ants). $20 goes to the person who makes the closest correct guess. Double or nothing IF you also correctly guess if the offender will be bigger or smaller than a breadbox. Snakes, other than anacondas, count as smaller.

Ties are broken by time of day. If one person guesses the 6th of a month and someone else guesses the 8th, and the event occurs on the 7th then if it is before noon 6 wins, otherwise 8 wins (unless either or both are negated by a size wager). Specific dates or scenarios only.

One entry per person, no purchase required, void where prohibited, you need not be present to win, no age restriction. Pets, children and Airbnb hosts don’t count as the offender. Once a date or scenario is chosen it is not available to others.

I believe “comments” are open for 14 days after I post this. I am in Southwest Utah for 4 nights, then Pahrump, Nevada for 4 (when I will be spending most of my time in Death Valley), then Joshua Tree in southern CA for 4, then I alternate between the coast and inland at various National Parks in California.

Contest ends if event occurs, or when I show up in Cincinnati to visit my nephew (probably mid to late September). Click on Comments to see what other people have guessed.

Closest CORRECT guess (not negated by bigger/smaller if you elect to take a gamble and weigh in on that) wins.

Good luck!!

  1. Emily – July 19, smaller than a breadbox. (her guess was actually July 18th, but sadly it was the only date already taken). Dave- pecked by a bird (smaller than a breadbox, I hope) June 24. Kendra- Ever the optimist, and having been the big winner last year. I repeat my guess of no incidents.
