A Million More Pages - Hogwarts: Backpacking Around The Globe: Finished

Backpacking Around The Globe hosted by A Million More Pages on Goodreads.

ANother challenge that was part of Hogwarts. It is possible to continue this but I have decided to end this with 2015 over. It has been fun but also sometimes difficult to match books to the tasks.

It is basically the same as Amazing Race but just alone and no race. We go to locations and do the tasks required and then continue.
My Goodreads thread is HERE and that's where I will be recording everything. In this blog I will add a list of books by month.

Information About Points for Backpackers

As of right now, it is just .25 per book read for the tasks. We are still discussing how we want to handle FF words and points for them, if any.

So, points breakdown:
Round One:
State: Book read = .25
Country: Book read = .25
Transportation: Book read = .25
Detour (Choose ONE): Book read = .25

After Round One, there will no longer be a state location, only country.

Backpackers can skip any task they want, they can do them in any order they want.
