10/10/10 – Be Part of a Worldwide Geocaching Record Attempt

10.10.10. - Geocaching under the Hills (GC2G1Jm) Plovdiv, Bulgaria

On October 10th of this year there will be an Event Cache on a Bulgarian hillside, a 10 minute, 10 second Flash Mob near a hotel in Tianjin, China and two geocachers in the United States will even make 10-10-10 their wedding day.

These are just three of more than a hundred geocaching events dotting the globe on 10-10-10.  Geocachers are taking October 10th, 2010 (10-10-10) to celebrate 10 years of geocaching and 10 years of Groundspeak in 2010.  You can join too and make geocaching history.

The geocaching community is attempting to break the record for number of accounts that logged caches in a single day.  Currently that number stands at 56,654.  Even one log on 10-10-10 counts since we are tallying how many accounts log a cache, rather than the number of caches logged.

One 10-10-10 Event Cache will be remembered forever by at least two geocachers.


Vader takes a Bride 10/10/10 @ 10:10:10 (GC2CXX3)

Lord Vader of the Mini Martin Warriors and Nozy RN are taking the 10-10-10 celebration to a new level.  Their 10-10-10 event is titled, “Vader takes a Bride 10/10/10 @ 10:10:10” The Virginia couple is exchanging wedding vows at exactly 10:10:10am on 10/10/10.

Portions of the 10-10-10 worldwide event will be captured in a Lost & Found video. You can play a part in the video clip which will be posted on Geocaching.com and its social media sites.  Take your video camera along on your 10-10-10 adventure.  All you have to do is simply record a ten second clip.

Tell the camera your geocaching name, the location (city, state, country) where you’re geocaching and one sentence about why you chose to geocache on 10-10-10.  Post your short 10-10-10 clip to the Geocaching.com Facebook Page by the end of the day on 10-10-10. Posting your video clip on Facebook grants consent for its use in the Lost & Found 10-10-10 video.  The best clips will make the video.

Currently ten Canadian Provinces, 17 locations in the United Kingdom, more than 40 American states  and even an outpost in Afghanistan are signed up to commemorate 10-10-10 by geocaching. Don’t miss out!  Explore the Geocaching Events Calendar to join an event near you. Log a cache that day and help break a geocaching record.
