This is a geo-challenge. For those I’m laying it down for, just post a comment to accept or not. If not, we know you are yellow!
Geocaching has a strong community, as well as cachers who blog. There are a bunch I read, but only a true handful I read on a regular basis. This challenge is for them.
So I’m calling you out… on my blog. It’s time to see if you have the nerve, the want, the desire to accept a geo-challenge.
Hick @ Heart? Yeah, yeah, yeah, work/travel… whatever. Travel bug challenge.
How about you Gunny John? No, don’t hide behind that Ocean just because you are serving in Japan right now. You know you can still do it.
Kiss my cache? Ha! I’ll show you the cache to kiss! Drop the bug in one and accept this challenge!
Tonka_boy? Norm? I know you’re probably already under 37 1/2 feet of snow in Minnesota, but dig out!
How about our Canadian pals up at Geocaching Online? How’s it going, eh? I play hockey too! By slapping a travel bug to distances unknown!
OK, enough trash talking… what’s the challenge?
This is simple. I’m sure IF any of these cachers accept the challenge, some rules will be tweaked before the final date to start is finalized. After all, I’m all about equal opportunity talking.
Oh and if any of them accept, I’ll be introducing them on this blog before it all starts.
Here’s the deal:
This one is simple. You are releasing a trackable (at geocaching.com) item that will travel the world over the next year. The idea is to rack up the most miles possible in regard to the other participants.
The trackable can be anything â€“ which makes this more interesting. It can be small, big â€“ anything.
The only thing is that it has to be attached to an official Groundspeak Travel Bug — that way, we are all using the same travel bug and not a coin or something like that.
Doesn’t matter what it is attached to, just as long as you activate it the DAY that it is supposed to be released and put into another cache to release it to the world.
Here are the current (in-progress) rules:
- The trackable item must be trackable on geocaching.com AND be attached to something else. It can’t be released by itself.
- You must release the item somewhere near your home coordinates.
- A photo of the bug should be on the cache page.
I’m sure we’ll add more as soon as I find out if these people will accept… or if they’re yellow.
So respond here. Accept or decline. But realize ridicule will come either way.
