I was in DESPERATE need of "new" inspiration. Coincidentally, a very bright young lady whom I met at a networking event needed the same. With that being said, we ended up at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, VA today with our cell phones and a scavenger hunt (that she created) in tow. Talk about an awesome experience!!!

I know I did.
