Contest: Easter egg hunt

This past Sunday I spent Easter at my grandma's house with family.  As we do every year, there was an Easter egg hunt throughout the woods and path around my grandma's house.  So the question is: How many eggs were hidden this year?


Facts to keep in mind:
Comment on this post with your guess (a number) by the end of the day on Monday, April 15 to be considered.  Contest winner will receive a letter on either my new Letter Writers Alliance stationery or one of the cards I acquired from my grandma on Sunday.  Family that were present at grandma's on Easter Sunday are not eligible for this contest.

  1. In the other blog post there's a picture of a yellow plastic egg with a bunch of what look like little chocolate eggs. I suppose we're only supposed to guess how many plastic ones there are?

    1. Yes, just the plastic eggs -- it's not intended as a trick question.

    1. How about this - any entries posted before I wake up (CST) on 4/16 will be counted.

    2. I suspect Caroline wants take advantage of the fact that everyone's vote is public to wait until the last possible minute to guess +1 one someone else's vote. As such, my guess is whatever Caroline guesses +1. If that number is also taken, keep +1-ing until a free number is available.

    3. Okay, changed the rules a bit -- closest number to the correct. None of that "without going over" business.

    4. Hah, take that Caroline!

  3. I was either going to +1 or go with the classic low bid (traditionally 1, but based on the available information, I'd have to go a bit higher). I'll have to think on it a bit more now!

  4. My guess is 10 eggs/acre for a total of 70 eggs.

    1. It wasn't my intention to be sneaky, I just didn't have internet yesterday.

  7. So, uh, it's been a week since the deadline and still no winner announcement. I feel scammed.

    1. I know, I know -- I'm currently in a hotel in Iowa, doing some catch-up blogging. One of my to-blog list items is the contest answer/winner post!
