Let me get this straight. You want me to leave my house, go outside and run around like a bunch of Barenaked Ladies? And you'll give me $1,000 toward a cool camping trip if you like the picture I take? In so many words, this is the 8th Green Music Group Challenge. Members of the Canadian band Barenaked Ladies want to help decrease a terrible statistic: Most people spend 90 percent of their lives indoors. So they're encouraging fans to get outside for the latest challenge.

To compete, you'll need some feet and a camera. Walk outside and appreciate nature. Take a lunch break on a park bench or pitch a tent, for instance. You can find hiking trails by using the handy dandy Sierra Club trail-finder.

Once you're out in the elements, and enjoying that feeling, take a photo of your adventure, upload the photo to the GMG site and tag it with an "EIGHT."

The top entry in this (eighth) Green Music Group Challenge will take home (and then outside) a $1,000 gift certificate for a Sierra Club Outing, which can be used toward hundreds of cool camping, hiking and kayaking trips. The deadline is noon July 30.

Every entry into the challenge also gives you a chance at the grand prize ... a Honda Insight hybrid. Perfect for driving to the campground.
