Planetary Pursuit Rescue Mission has launched

 

Planetary Pursuit Rescue Mission has launched.

To give geocachers more time to complete their missions, Planetary Pursuit has been extended for an additional week. Please make sure to log all your finds before Monday, April 16, at noon UTC to earn your Friend League points and Planetary Pursuit souvenirs.  

Since launching Planetary Pursuit three weeks ago, tens of thousands of Geocaching Explorers have blasted into space to log new geocaches and conquer extraterrestrial geocaching adventures.

But Signal, we had a problem.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of Planetary Pursuit, Geocaching.com, the Geocaching® apps, and API partners experienced intermittent outages. We know many of you were counting on geocaching and logging your finds, especially during peak weekend times. We hope extending Planetary Pursuit for another week gives you the opportunity to achieve your Official Space Explorer badge.

Thank you for all the stellar feedbackgood and badregarding Planetary Pursuit and accompanying technical issues. We received thousands of comments, suggestions, and questions from enthusiastic geocachers all over our planet. We thank you and wish you well in completing your mission.

Kids Shouldn’t Have ALL the Fun

Ever dreamed about finding hidden treasure that leads you to delicious and healthy food? It’s safe to say that most of us gave up on those ideas some time around adolescence.

Often geocaching is done by driving in your car to the cache closest to your location. But sometimes you have to do some preparation, research, and gather the right equipment. Our Geocache of the Week falls into the latter category.

Sky House is reached by undertaking a twelve pitch ice climb on the famous House of Sky Climb located in the Ghost River Wilderness Area in Alberta, Canada. While it is possible to hike to the cache during the summer, it is not recommended, as the trail is poorly marked and it is very easy to get lost. The best time to approach it is during the winter.
