International Geocaching Day 20th August, 2022

As part of International Geocaching Day celebrations geocaching HQ have set the geocaching community a challenge, to break the record for most cachers to log a find in a day. The current record is 126,833 cachers which was set way back on August 11, 2013. To join the challenge and be counted, log a ‘Found It’ log on a geocache, complete an Adventure Lab location or post an ‘Attended’ log for an event taking place on 20th August. If a new record is set a souvenir will be awarded to everyone who took part in creating the new record.

Have you ever wondered how ideas begin at geocaching HQ?

Take a look at this
