I followed that one for quite a while and knew many of the places. I even left work in the middle of the day once to try to go find it, but all I found was the note indicating that I was too late. People who don't have to work daily usually did a lot better than the rest of us.
Anyway, you might consider including a physical object as part of this.
Sounds similar and fun, We had even contemplated leaving an ice cold beer but too many drawbacks (like heat) but if its all the same to the locals rather keep it to the way I know it. May change in the future with agreeable active players though. Making it a rule to post a fresh tag immediately after getting one would help keep it going, because it prevents waiting on one persons action.
