International Geocaching Day 2023

Mark your calendars! International Geocaching Day 2023 approaches!

Ever since the 2011 Geocaching Block Party, geocachers worldwide come together for a day of celebration and smileys on the third Saturday of each August. This holiday is just one of the many quirks that make the global geocaching community so endearing. This year, we celebrate the amazing biodiversity of our planet. Can we count you in on the 12th anniversary of this special occasion?

Log any geocache, Adventure Lab® Location, or Event on August 19 or August 20 to earn the International Geocaching Day 2023 souvenir.

Don’t Panic – It’s Towel Day!

A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.
– Douglas Adams

Geocachers enjoy celebrating geeky holidays, and Towel Day is no exception! It is celebrated on May 25 every year in commemoration of the life and work of Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Hitchhikers carry a towel with them on this day to celebrate.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide is well-represented throughout geocaching. The HQ GeoTour, Trackable Towels, and Towel Day Events are just a few examples.

How will you celebrate Towel Day? More importantly, do you know where your towel is?
