the weather didn't keep us from hitting up a CORN maize yesterday. a couple girlfriends and I went to the Zarpentine Farms corn maize. The theme of the maize was Noah's Ark. I wonder how the heck someone 'mowed' the animal shapes into the corn?! I can hardly write my initials with the lawn mower....
anyways - the objective was to find the 10 colored 'sticks' - if you answered each one correctly it gave you a clue to the next one. the maize was a LOT larger than what I expected and tough for a 'totally-bad-with-directions' girl like me. they told us some people take 3+ HOURS to get through it all. it really would be a TON of fun if you brought a large group and broke up into teams.
here are some tips for first-timers:
1. wear crappy clothes n case it is muddy outside
2a. bring a FLASHLIGHT
2b. if u forget ur flashlight, bring ur CAMERA and take a photo of the map to review when lost
2c. if u forget ur flashlight and your CAMERA runs out of batteries - ur out of luck
3. don't be shy to ask for directions from kind strangers
technically - Lanie and I lost Krista & Kimmer. somehow they emerged with all 10 sticks in less than 45 minutes. i'm pretty sure they were yawning during the rules when the race judges said 'no bartering with strangers for sticks'.
