Round up all your seaworthy raiders and get familiar with Geocaching.com’s newest feature: the Friend League.

The Friend League is a leaderboard that shows you and your friends’ geocaching activity. If you log a cache, or attend an event you collect points in the form of gold coins.

To earn the souvenir with the first map piece you have to collect a combined total of 30 gold coins from July 17 to July 23 together with your crew.* You must individually contribute at least 5 coins to your crew’s total. So, the more friends you have on Geocaching.com, the easier it will be to keep sailing on…

When I'm outside I'm happy. Besides geocaching I love gardening, hiking, cooking and spending time with my wonderful two and four legged friends. Got eight legs? Sorry, but please stay far away from me!
