You ready to hunt with the best?
When it was hot, did you rest?
It’s time now for hunting,
And that’s such a fun thing.
These rules will serve as a test.
Do you tromp on some lady’s nice flowers?
Or dig in some poor critter’s bowers?
No, don’t you dare!
The coin is not there.
We only use public land: Ours!
This gold coin won’t be in the water.
(We don’t want to scare up an otter.)
Don’t bother the fish.
How sincere is our wish!
Just walk where you can; that’s an oughta.
Do you need to be high as a kite?
Are you sure that the coin’s in plain sight?
We answer oh, no and oh, yes.
No dig and no water--good guess.
(For goodness’ sake, don’t hunt at night!)
No digging or splashing, no ladders, our land
These rules you should keep in your hand
One rule yet to go,
When looking for dough:
Have fun here in Jordan so grand.

First Clue – 8/8/2022
Got your rule list in your head?
Bottled water close to hand?
Beat the heat; protect your heart.
This damp heat is bad for health.
Once this clue is duly read,
Get out there to beat the band.
Each gold hunter plays their part,
Searching Jordan for some wealth.
No long trek need cause you dread.
Can’t go barefoot through the sand.
Gold’s in spot you shouldn’t dart,
Boldly go, no need for stealth.
Cozy homes surround the bed
Where the coin makes its grand stand.
Golden lure makes hunters smart,
Vision: lucre but not pelf.
