Geocaching Last/First Souvenirs

Celebrate the New Year with two new souvenirs

2017 has been a fun year for geocaching: we celebrated 3 Million Active Geocaches, went geocaching around the globe with Where’s Signal the FrogⓇ, and found pirate booty with The Lost Treasure of Mary Hyde. But it’s time to start looking ahead.

Let’s make 2018 the best year ever! To get us off to a good start, we’re announcing two new souvenirs: one to celebrate your last cache of 2017, and one to celebrate your first cache of 2018!

How can I earn both souvenirs?

  1. Find a geocache or attend an event on December 31, 2017 to earn the Last Cache of 2017 souvenir.
  2. Find a geocache or attend an event on January 1, 2018 to earn the First Cache of 2018 souvenir.

Can you earn two souvenirs for one event if it starts on December 31 and ends on January 1?

Nice try. To earn both souvenirs, you’ll have to submit two different logs for two different geocaches and/or events, one on each day.

Can I schedule back-to-back events to earn both souvenirs ?

Nope! The geocaching guidelines prohibit event stacking. To avoid event stacking, Event Caches should be separated by time, organized by different geocachers, have a minimum duration of 30 minutes and take place at a different location than other events. Please check out the geocaching hiding guidelines for more information about Event Caches.

The New Year is like a new log book: a fresh start! How will you end 2017 and start anew in 2018?

    Love it!

    IT’S TOO bad event stacking is prohibited these days. Those were the good ol’ days of sight seeing in your own county or state in a day by attending back to back to back to back events. Always thought that was what geocaching was about. Taking people to places.


    Not to mention an out with the old and in with the new situation is the perfect alibi for back to back events …

  • I already look forward to finding them and earning the souvenirs. I just love to collect them – also the country souevenirs. It should be broadened somehow, e.g. embedding scripts for own websites, better presentation on the profile page, etc..
