Each month, the global geocaching community meets three outstanding geocachers. As part of this community, your task is to help decide which one will be known forevermore as a Geocacher of the Month.
These exceptional people stand out among others for their demonstrated dedication to the game we all love. If you’re lucky enough to someday meet one of them, give ’em a high five. Each of the nominees below will receive a prize package from Geocaching HQ in Seattle, but only one will be the next Geocacher of the Month. A panel from Geocaching HQ will use your comments, community input and other data to decide the winner.
Now it’s your turn to help us select the next Geocacher of the Month. Write a supportive comment below for the nominated geocacher you feel should be awarded the title.
With just over 2,100 finds, there’s no arguing that Mr Donut WP is already a force to be reckoned with in the UK geocaching community. But the username entered in all those logbooks isn’t the only imprint he’s made. The “Bike or Hike” geocache series he’s created has received a good share of favorite points and makes for a great geocaching excursion through two counties.
Best of all, his nominees can’t say enough about the fun, well-attended, and inviting Event Caches he regularly hosts. Through them he has brought geocachers to new and interesting places, fostered a sense of local geocaching community, and inspired new geocachers to continue with the game.
Team Geologynut is considered one of the founding fathers of the East Tennessee geocaching community. His geocache hides—over 400, including 10 EarthCaches—are well-loved and well-maintained.
Lostnspace says, “Team Geologynut has created a variety of geocaches, including exciting and educational Earthcaches, challenging puzzle caches, traditional caches ranging from easy park and grabs to difficulty/terrain caches up to 5/5s, and many other enjoyable finds for all of us.” Team Geologynut represents the best of this sport, and is “truly a wonderful diplomat of the Geocaching Community.”
“HikingSeal is one of those people who you just want to spend time with on the trail searching for caches.” So says a fellow geocacher, and we believe it. Her statistics may be impressive, but they’re nothing compared to her own geocaching events. Her monthly “Sunday morning Hiking Series” is a popular recurring geocaching event which draws geocachers from far and wide onto beautiful trails scattered with geocaches and good company.
According to Pip-Boy3000, HikingSeal “is always positive and encouraging on the hikes and goes out of her way to make sure everyone who comes has a good, safe and fun time. She has made many friends throughout the years sponsoring these hikes, some from other countries who have graciously taken her caching when she has visited their homeland.”
