15 Years of Geocaching
18th June 2015 by MarcusMaximi
If you found a geocache on May 2nd this year you would have earned a souvenir to celebrate 15 years of geocaching and to unlock your challenge for this summer. The souvenir text read as follows …
Thanks for celebrating 15 Years of Geocaching with us! On May 2, 2000, the United States government disabled selective availability—increasing the accuracy of civilian GPS devices. The very next day, May 3, the first geocache was hidden. Now it’s time to discover your Geocaching Road Trip ’15 mission. Between June 19 and September 2, find five souvenirs to unlock a special sixth souvenir. Check out the Geocaching Blog for details: http://www.geocaching.com/blog/
Over the next few months, we’ll all be going on a geocaching journey to celebrate 15 years of geocaching. You’ll have the opportunity to complete five geocaching quests, each of which will earn you a special souvenir for your geocaching profile. Complete all five and you’ll earn a sixth, extra special souvenir.
After each quest begins, you’ll be able to complete it and earn your souvenir until September 2, 2015. So pack your bag, load up on snacks and set your road trip playlist, because here are your quests and their start dates:
- June 19 – Sept 2: Find a geocache with 10 or more Favorite Points
- July 3 – Sept 2: Attend an Event, Mega-Event or Giga-Event
- July 17 – Sept 2: Find a T5 or D5 geocache
- July 31 – Sept 2: Find an EarthCache or attend a CITO
- August 14 – Sept 2: Find a Mystery Cache
Well, tomorrow is the first active day of the challenge.
