Use luck, chance or skill to breakdown the clues
And you'll be viewed as the medallion hunt boss.
One is open. One is closed.
And a chip shot away from several bars.
There's also a neighborhood in the vicinity,
But a five iron away from fast-moving cars.
$500 if you nail down these directions
And if your victory route matches perception.
A guy and his buddy named Ed can help.
It's finding the correct links to avoid deception.
No schools and nary a church to see.
Avoid hospitals and government employee throng.
But you can almost see an island.
Plus, a family business with it's named spelled wrong.
Jumpin' Jack Flash is a Stones refrain.
And yummy, yummy, yummy is more than a gastric delight.
Something posted as public is so very close
And a repetitive sports plea is just out of sight.
On Hillbillies they said, Y'all come back now."
On Seinfeld it's more a matter of a name.
There's lots of parking nearby if you're on this hunt
And a boulevard to cross for the fame.
A morning-after embarrassment
And a bus stop at this location.
If you can't see garages, you're lost.
Look around the corner for a money vocation.
Think of two numbers that add up to eight
And a year when Elvis wore green.
Search a place with a basketball hoop, in fact, two
And a Wrigley-like fence to be seen.
Something tall, big and slippery at this spot.
It's color close to a Navajo tradition.
Lots of things to climb and swing
To help keep kids in good condition.
Give me liberty or give me death.
That street should lead you to the right park.
Now find the steps and you'll find the flake.
That's it for another Winter RecFest lark.
