Jeremy Messersmith launches pre-tour scavenger hunt

Have I ever mentioned I love a good gimmick??? I thought so.

I also enjoy scavenger hunts, although I don't know that I've ever completed one....

Jeremy Messersmith has a Twitter based scavenger hunt organized. Of course to take part you've got to be in/around Minneapolis, but if you like good ideas, check out Messersmith's website.

The hunt is coinciding with the release of his new album, The Reluctant Graveyard, due out next week (comes w/ poster pictured below)

I'm also slightly confused as to how it's going to take him 9 days to travel 45 miles at the beginning of his tour (Omaha May 1 to Lincoln May 9 is about 45-50 minutes at the speed limit) - and yes my "confusion" is a figure of speech
