March Featured Geocacher of the Month, Alexschweigert

Alexschweigert is recognized for sharing his love for geocaching and the sea with others by inviting them to experience a geocaching adventure like no other. Alex chartered a ship for nearly 300 geocachers and led the Allerhalligen-Cruises on March 24th.

According to one geocacher, Alex “is tremendously engaged and so much into geocaching that he is putting up great caches in his surroundings and besides that, he has the capability of putting on outrageous events.”
