International EarthCache Day 2013

ImageMark your calendars, it’s almost that time of year again! Every year there is a special event know as International EarthCache day, this year it just so happens to be held on October 13th 2013, in honor of Earth Science Week.

EarthCaches teach us all about our favorite place to geocache – earth. An EarthCache takes adventurers to a unique site showcasing geological features like a century old cave, or rare rock formations. Simply discover and log an EarthCache, or attend an EarthCache Event, to take part in the worldwide movement. These types of caches can help the adventurer learn how odd rocks were formed, or to teach about plate tectonics, and so much more!

There are more than 14,000 active EarthCaches around the world. Comment below and let me know how you plan to spend your EarthCache day! I am organizing an event here in South Korea, where all the geocachers in the country meetup at the Onyang Hot Springs!

International Geocaching Day 2013

Image

Get out your GPSr’s and download some caches, It’s that time of the year again. Every 3rd Saturday in August (this year its August 17, 2013) there is a worldwide event known as International Geocaching Day.

This is a day devoted entirely to getting out and participating in the greatest and most addicting game out there – geocaching. 

Geocachers who log an “Attended” at an Event Cache or a “Found it” for another cache type on International Geocaching Day earn a souvenir (pictured here) for their Geocaching.com profile page.

Also, if you are participating in the 31 Days of Geocaching event, you will double dip on that day’s souvenirs, just FYI. I have gotten the last IGD souvenirs the past 2 years, gotta keep the tradition going!

31 Days of Geocaching (continued)

Due to the upcoming event for the entire month of August, I decided to map out exactly what caches I plan to get for each day, with both regular and premium member caches. This map is based on the fact that I get at least 1 cache a day. Too bad I don’t have a car here in Korea.. this is going to be a lot of running back and forth on my bicycle! This map also gives me some alternative caches in case I happen to DNF any of these.
