Geocache Description:


THE CACHE IS AT THE LISTED COORDS.

The objective of this challenge is to find 50 caches on one of the any of the 3 unlucky days.

Superstitons are fascinating, such as Friday the 13th. Also similar superstitions among other cultures interesting. For example, in Spanish-speaking countries, Martes Trece (Tuesday the 13th) is considered an unlucky day. The Greeks consider the same day, Τρίτη τον 13ο, to be bad luck. With a slight variation, Venerdì 17 (Friday the 17th) is a day of bad luck in Italian popular culture.
