Get Started.

Sign up here, then visit one or more GOSH locations across seven regions of Texas. Each site includes selfie instructions, so grab your phone or digital camera and snap a photo of yourself as described in the entry. Upload your photos at the GOSH link, or post your photo(s) to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #GOSH2022. You can also check out a gallery of other GOSH participants here.

Conquer a Category.

Complete all the activities in a region and you’ll get a handsome, downloadable certificate commemorating your achievement, along with a shout-out in a future issue of Texas Parks & Wildlife, in which we’ll salute our GOSH participants.

For example, to complete the Dallas region, you'll need to upload seven total selfies, one corresponding to each of the tasks on pages 32–33 of the June issue of the magazine, or on the Dallas section of the app or website (see below). Complete all activities across multiple regions — but not the entire state — and you’ll have additional bragging rights, although the prize is the same.

Become a GOSH Guru.

Complete every activity on this year’s hunt — and upload all corresponding selfies to social media or our online portal — and you’ll win the ultimate GOSH bragging rights and the admiration of the Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine staff. You’ll also receive a downloadable certificate crowning you a GOSH-er par excellence, and will be entered to win one of three $100 Buc-ee's gift cards. Best of all, you can forever bask in the knowledge that you’ve truly enjoyed the best Texas summer ever.

For complete rules, click here. You'll find all the GOSH challenges (with driving directions) via the link below. You can also take GOSH with you all summer long when you download our magazine app for iOS or Android (it's free!). Since all good things come to an end, GOSH 2022 ends at midnight on Labor Day, Sept. 5, 2022.
