Who needs a medallion when you can have a potato?
The Golden Spud, a valuable potato family heirloom, was handed down from Spud McTater's great-great-grandfather. Once again, the fabled Golden Spud has gone missing.
Spud knows it's somewhere in Brooklyn Park, but he needs your help retracing his steps. He will provide weekly clues to guide you on your search.
I was walking along at a rather light pace
'Til I stumbled upon a wide open space
The fields, they were groomed almost to perfection
So I wandered on through to do some reflection
I was so close to home, yet so far away
Walking and walking, I started to stray
I was suddenly lost, so I looked back and forth
I turned right around and headed due north
