Announcing the October ‘Featured Geocacher of the Month’

More than a hundred geocachers from around the world weighed in to help name the Featured Geocacher of the Month for October. Each comment affirmed that the three nominees were all deserving. Each is a geocacher who goes above and beyond in geocaching innovation, creativity, respect for the environment and helpfulness. Each nominee should be congratulated as an exceptional geocacher and individual. We are proud that each of the cachers is part of our worldwide community.

The choice for the October Featured Geocacher of the Month was not easy. A panel of Lackeys, relying on voting and community comments, could ultimately choose only one.

coast2coast2coast has been named the October Featured Geocacher of the Month. More than 50 geocachers posted comments in support of coast2coast2coast’s humble dedication to geocaching, geocachers and his local community. According to one comment, “Tom and Heather are the reason why I learned about geocaching in the first place and ever since they have been an inspiration to all geocachers in our neck of the woods. They have hosted multiple events, hidden excellent caches, all at various levels of difficulty, and are always aiding fellow cachers when in need.”

coast2coast2coast will receive a collector’s edition Geocacher of the Month Geocoin, along with a Geocacher of the Month hat and certificate acknowledging their contributions signed by two of the founders of Geocaching.com. Those nominees not chosen as the Featured Geocacher of the Month receive a gift of appreciation from Groundspeak. See a list of all the Featured Geocachers of the Month here. The geocaching community is encouraged to renominate those not named Featured Geocacher of the Month.

If you know an outstanding geocacher who should be considered for Geocacher of the Month, send an email to geocacherofthemonth@groundspeak.com.
