Gallup Gallop

Difficulty: ????
Exploration Badge
Part of the SummerGame2016 Game

Okay it’s late July no one expects you to gallop anywhere - except from Art Fair traffic! Head over to the northside of town to visit Gallup Park. Before you head out you might want to print out this handy map http://www.a2gov.org/departments/Parks-Recreation/parks-places/Documents/Park%20Maps/Gallup%20Park%20Map.pdf

Start by parking in the lot off Geddes road. You will know you are in the right spot when you see the canoes recycled into River Art and the “Park Rules” sign. Find your first gamecode on this sign. Look at the last rule list: this one word after NO plus the # listed as the maxiumum limit is your gamecode

We’ll be traveling along the paved path to the left keeping the canoe river art to your right. Walk a bit, cross a bridge and then look for the bench on your right. The first and last name of the person this memorial bench is for is your next gamecode

Continue along the now woodchip trail and look for the bench coming up on your left (it has a little spot to look at the water behind it). The last name of the person this bench is for is your next gamecode

Keep going along the shady path and look for the big rock near the bench coming up on your left. Look at the plaque on the big rock. The last two words on it are next gamecode

Walk along a ways more - crossing another bridge - and look for the bench on your right. The last name of the woman memorialized is your next gamecode

Follow the path along and cross another bridge - you will find two benches on each side of the path. Your next gamecode is the last name on the left bench plus the last name on the right bench together

Now cross the last bridge until you get to the fork with the large red eared slider turtle in front of it. Follow the path to the left - you will pass a picnic shelter with a white cover and the grills near the water on the left. Follow the curve and find the bench on the right. The last name on the memorial plaque is your next gamecode

Keep along the path (you will pass Arthur’s Rich’s memorial bench). Be on the lookout for the bench on the right sitting under the lovely tree. The last two words describing the woman on the memorial plaque is your next gamecode

At this point you have some choices based on construction. You can continue along the path (going around the small Gallup pond) if the path looks safe. The day the gamemaker went the path looked mostly open, but once on the other end of the path it had been closed with a barrier. Use your best judgement. With this in mind you can either travel back to find your last gamecode or find it when you go all the way around. The bench to the right of the large turtle at the path split has a last name on it (hint it’s the same last name as other other bench) - this is your last gamecode

Pat yourself on the back gameplayer for you have just completed another Arbor Explorer badge!
