Become a “Gosher” this Summer


No matter where you live in Texas, you can participate in the Great Outdoor Scavenger Hunt.

This is Passport to Texas

Through Labor Day, The Great Outdoor Scavenger Hunt—or GOSH—inspires you to discover the natural wonders, wildlife, water, history and fringes of Texas.

I would want to make sure everyone knows that no matter where in Texas you live, there’s at least one thing on this list that’s close to you. And probably more. So we want everyone to participate. This should not feel exclusive, this should feel very inclusive.

Nathan Adams is art director for TPW Magazine; along with the website and magazine APP, it provides the GOSH guide, which includes 30 tasks to encourage exploration and discovery of Texas’ best.

If you complete all of the tasks in any given location, then you’ll get a certificate that we’ll email to you that you can print out; and if you’re crazy enough all the way—get them all—then you’ll get a different certificate [you’re a “Gosher” par excellence] and you’ll get a two-year digital subscription to the magazine.

To participate, go to the sites, take selfies of you and your crew and then upload the images to social media, or to a portal on the website with the hashtag: #GOSHTX.

So, I’m hoping people will discover things didn’t know existed in Texas. But mostly I’m hoping that people will just have a good time being outdoors.

Find complete details for the Great Outdoor Scavenger Hunt in the May issue of TPW magazine—on newsstands now—and the TPW website.

We receive support from RAM Trucks: Built to Serve.
