2011: Geocaching Year in Review

The final geocaching hours in 2011 are ticking away. But the year won’t be forgotten. The geocaching adventure grew like never before in 2011.

Just a few fun things that happened this year:

After Lackey transforms into a hamster

-More than 400,000 new active geocaches were listed on That’s quite a bit geocaching for your “to do” list in 2012.

-New maps, statistics and Favorite Points were added to enrich the geocaching experience.

-Geocaching Challenges were launched, helping bring adventure to every location.

-The community celebrated the first International Geocaching Day!

Check out the 2011 Geocaching Year in Review video for a fun overview of these events and all the other geocaching happenings in 2011. (SPOILER ALERT: You’ll also see a Lackey transform into a Groundspeak Hamster. It’s magical.)

    But I’m glad my 30,-$ helped.
    Beta Maps still doesn’t work on my iPad though.
