We tried it once and our GPS location put us in a Ruby Tuesday's parking lot. It doesn't always work.
My particular favorite real world quest is High Pointing.
At the top of every high point in every US state is a brass marker. Some of them are easy, some of them require major mountain climbing skills (or a heliocoptor drop off.) Some have beautiful state parks (or even national or federal parks), some have the brass marker stuck unceremoniously into a cement block in someone's backyard (I'm looking at you, Mississippi.) Either way, it's a good way to ensure you visit every state, and you can collect badges and pins for achievements and eventually a leather bomber jacket once you hit 50 states.
