Preparing for 31 days of geocaching in August

by GPS4US 2013-07-11 17:08
The gauntlet has been thrown!

Geocachers around the world have renamed August “The 31 Days of Geocaching.” The challenge is to earn a calendar-style souvenir for every day you find a geocache. And the folks over at are helping you prepare for a month of epic finds.

The recently posted a blog with eight tips to help you keep your streak going, because a full month of geocaching isn’t quite as easy as it sounds.

Their list:
1. Plan ahead: Have a plan before you search.
2. Work geocaching into your day: Don’t be afraid to go a little out of your way to find caches when you’re walking your dog, going to the bank or doing any other part of your daily routine.
3. Learn to love the easy stuff: “When you’re working on a streak, the simple geocaches are your best friends,” says.
4. The 11:30 p.m., 12 a.m. trick: A nice little hint. Find one geocache around 11:30 p.m., and then another at midnight. That’s two days down in a half hour.
5. Save the easy finds for last: If you get the hard stuff out of the way, your month becomes easier.
6. Skip the FTFs: Fight the urge for a First to Find. Instead, save those as backup options later in the month.
7. Find a partner: Your partner will give you motivation and help you finish, even when you might be a little burnt out.
8. Plan your final geocache: Give yourself something to look forward to. Get the other 30 out of the way before you find your holy grail of geocaching.
