Don’t miss this FTF!

In the geocaching world, adding an FTF badge to your Geocaching profile is a rite of passage. It is an honor earned through hard work and constant vigilance. Good news, wannabe FTF’ers! From October 10–16, you’ll finally have a chance to snag the FTF you always dreamed of.

Well, sort of.

Will you “Friend to Find”?

Geocaching is better with friends. From October 10–16, you may not be the first to find* a new geocache, but you will have the excuse you’ve been waiting for to take your “muggle” friends caching.

All participants will receive a prestigious Friend to Find (FTF) badge** to add to their Geocaching profile. Winning photos will be featured on the Geocaching Blog.

How to participate:

  1. Tell your non-geocacher friends to sign up for a Geocaching account.
  2. Between October 10 and October 16, 2016, take these friends to find their first geocache
  3. Photograph your adventure together.
  4. Submit your photo and geocache log no later than Monday, October 17 at 11:59pm PST.

Your friends can try Geocaching Premium, free for 30 days.

From October 10–16, your newbie friends can explore the game at its finest with Geocaching Premium.

Start your 30-day free trial.

*But by all means, please do go get a First to Find (FTF) on a geocache anyway. You can do it!

** Badges will be emailed to participants the week following Friend to Find week.
