The geocaching community took note of three amazing geocachers from three different parts of the globe this month. Each contributes to the geocaching with world famous hides, nearly unparalleled finding ability and championing the geocaching adventure on social media. It was an incredibly difficult decision to name the Geocacher of the Month. Each of the other nominees deserves special recognition for their contribution.
Before naming the Geocacher of the Month, Geocaching HQ reviews community input and blog comments. After tallying the sentiment and reading the comments, Dr Evil. has been officially named the Geocacher of the Month for August 2013.
One comment shows Dr Evil.’s dedication to all aspects of geocaching, “His caches are fantastic for kids and getting them interested in caching but also in the great outdoors again. His vlogs on YouTube are always informative, upbeat but above all that you can see his dedication and his passion for finding caches and placing them. He’s organised some great events some for the family, some for the extreme cacher but he is always friendly, polite and always willing to help out a beginner.”
Dr Evil. will receive the earned, never for sale, collector’s edition Geocacher of the Month Geocoin, along with a Geocacher of the Month hat and a certificate acknowledging his contribution, signed by two of the founders of Geocaching.com. See a list of all the Geocachers of the Month here.
