Drop your anchor and set sail with two new souvenirs

After an exciting journey on the open ocean, it’s finally time to return to port and step onto dry land. What an adventure it’s been! 🌊🧭

At long last, the voyage we call “2022” is reaching the end of its itinerary. Every year has its rough seas, high winds, and perhaps even moments where you must batten down the hatches! But after each storm comes calm and tranquil waters. So, no matter where geocaching has taken you this year, it’s time to drop anchor and reflect on your travels.

Tie down your vessel and embark on geocaching adventures in the new year with two souvenirs! As the year ends, you can “Drop Anchor” to close out 2022; at the start of 2023, launch your geocaching journey with “Full Sail!
