Today is August first, which means that today is your first day to start working towards the coveted Achiever Souvenir at Geocaching.com by participating in the 7 Souvenirs of August! This month’s theme is exploring the geocaching universe by finding six different types of geocaches. So break out of your comfort zone and go and find those caches! It is going to take some planning on your part though, so don’t procrastinate until the last week! Besides, you don’t want to be the last one to log it, do you? Didn’t think so.
So, on to the challenges! Here are the six souvenirs needed to unlock the seventh:
- Explorer Souvenir: Find a traditional geocache! Nice and easy.
- Puzzler Souvenir: Find a mystery geocache or a puzzle geocache
- Sightseer Souvenir: Find a multi-cache
- Nature Lover Souvenir: Attend a CITO event or find an EarthCache. Don’t have one nearby? Organize your own!
- Socializer Souvenir: Attend an event cache, a mega-event or a giga-event. You can even host your own and log that as a find.
- Collector Souvenir: Find a virtual cache, Wherigo, Letterbox Hybrid or Webcam cache
Once you’ve logged all six caches, then the mysterious seventh souvenir will be unlocked and you can stand proudly knowing you are among the lucky few!
Sounds simple right? Well, then get out there and start geocaching! Here’s a video from geocaching.com to help you get in the right mindset. Happy hunting!
