The lost treasure of Mary Hyde

Ahoy mates, the journey has begun. Join your crew on the Friend League and learn how you can find the lost treasure of Mary Hyde here.

Spanning the globe and the seven seas, we introduce you to the infamous Captain Mary Hyde. Her ship, The Golden Cache, was the fiercest, and the bearded buccaneers and sea legged sailors reported to her. Legend has it that she ruled the high seas for many years, and found no shortage of riches throughout her reign.

We’ve come upon a battered letter, found in a bottle on the shore near Geocaching HQ, with the infamous crest of Captain Mary Hyde. It seems there is one last treasure yet to be found.

Avast ye! Join us for a swashbuckling geocaching adventure through daring feats and stormy seas. Make yer way through a four week souvenir journey to find the lost treasure of Mary Hyde. Up to six digital souvenir moments are up for grabs, and on Geocaching.com is something new to be had…

Some days you’ll be up, and some maybe down, but the only goal is to have fun all around. You’ll want some friends and a desire to cache because this new feature may show who’s first and who ye could pass.

Arrrr you with us? Pledge your participation in the comments below and start planning yer events for July 15 or 16.

Don’t forget to visit Shop Geocaching for the lost treasure of Mary Hyde collection!

    Aww we missed the first two weeks, but still playing for fun!

    I’m still not sure how it works. Anyway, if I can be of use as a friend you can send me a request – I have earned 151 coins and got two souvernirs (Weigh Anchor and Smuggler’s Cove)

  • Matthew Williams

    When will geocaching/groundspeak make these challenges/souvenirs more of an actual challenge? They are very nice for new cachers or occasional but do not pose any challenge to someone who cachers daily or even weekly.
    Can we have something better next year please?

    My scoring is not right for Week 3! I should have 40 coins. The system gave me 7 for a multi cache and 5 coins for another multi cache

  • Patricia Alderhout

    You have the souvenir by now, right? Thanks for helping me these last weeks by being part of my crew. Such a pity we’re on our own again this final week. Good luck in finding caches!

  • Terry Wolf

    I am 76 and, when first reading about this activity, chose not to immerse myself. Then, yesterday, at a local event, friends told me about the success I had achieved with this challenge simply by going about my regular caching activities. Surprised me; pleasantly!
