Hi, my name is Adam. Growing up in the 80s I enjoyed watching movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Goonies. Later it was movies like National Treasure and the epic video game series Uncharted. When I wasn’t watching one of these movies, I was cosplaying it. An old bicycle wrench was my Copper Bones. A surplus WWII gas mask bag became my Indiana Jones side bag.
I’ve always wanted to experience an adventure similar to one of these characters, and that got me thinking. Why not? Why couldn’t I have an adventure like one of my favorite characters, learn some local history, and maybe even find an artifact or some treasure along the way?
Maybe I couldn’t, but I could definitely create them for other people. From this, the idea for Uncharted Lancaster was born. The elevator pitch sounds like this: National Treasure meets letterboxing meets Lancaster County history.
Armed with a basement full of maker space equipment, volumes of Lancaster County history, classic movie prop replicas, and a bunch of smart friends, I began constructing various adventures for Uncharted Lancaster.
If you haven’t experienced an Uncharted Lancaster adventure yet what are you waiting for? You can start anytime. Who knows what you might find. The Copper Bones. Headpiece to the Staff of Ra. Take a loved one, and you might even find illumination.
Lancaster County history discovered through epic adventures.
