Families, Corporate Groups, and Community Outreach Programs are all looking for ways to use this activity to have fun outside. I recently played with an international finance company, in Houston, Texas. Laminar Direct Capital had me come to 'map the city' with GPS units for their off site team building activity. I roamed the city setting up Points of Interest that brought the teams to answer questions at the specific spot, or locate a hidden cache in the area the GPS told them to go. While visiting Minute Maid Park at about 6:30 in the morning, to create a waypoint to visit, I realized that a marathon was just beginning. I spent hours dodging their route to get to the places I needed to go. That was the challenge, for me.
The corporate team building with GPS event went off without a hitch despite the freezing temperatures and flooding that was predicted.
Team members were from all over the US and a an office in the U.K. This event gave them opportunity to get to know each other, learn about Houston, and spend 4 hours locating the Points of Interest areas that I had created. One of the favorite spots was the Beer House, but Cavender's Boot Store was the most photographed by the groups.
