The folks at Groundspeak, who administer the geocaching.com website, have announced the 31 days of geocaching challenge. The idea is to go on a geocaching streak and try and find a cache every day in August. I guess it’s the equivalent of #blogjune or #commentjuly for geocachers. As a reward for taking part in the challenge, Groundspeak are giving away one of their souvenirs for each day that you find a cache. These are a bit like badges which can be earned in some online games. Some geocachers love them and try to collect as many as they can, whereas others (like myself) don’t actively try and earn them.
This isn’t something that we will be able to do, but we might try and break our current streak, which stands at four days. International Geocaching Day falls on 17th August this year, so we might try and include that day in our streak. I’ll let you know how we go.
