Looking for ways to earn that first shiny Fun with Favorites souvenir now that the Geocaching Road Trip ‘15 is finally here? Well we’ve got an insider tip for you: try a GeoTour!
GeoTours are special collections of caches designed to take geocachers like you on an awesome journey through interesting places such as a town or city, a park, or even the Kennedy Space Center. Not only do GeoTours guide you through a cool destination, but they will also take you to some pretty cool, highly favorited geocaches. In fact, GeoTour caches earn three times more Favorite Points than other geocaches!
Geocachers are awarding blue ribbons left and right for the Geocaching Capital of Canada GeoTour in Ontario, Canada. This GeoTour launched just over a month ago and has already racked up over 1000 Favorite Points, thanks to caches like GC5RC88. Geocacher whatandwhere says,“Thanks for placing all these amazing caches out there. They certainly took a lot of time to make and a great deal of thought. Still have a few more to find — can’t wait to get back up there to finish them.”
