Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Ever had a busy caching day? Ever had a busy well-rounded caching day? Here's your chance to tell your fellow geocachers about it! The Cache is at the posted coordinates but there is an additional logging requirement.

This is a Mystery with requirements that must be fulfilled in order to find and log this cache.

On the same date you will have to find 6 different types of caches (ex. Traditional, Multi, Event etc.) and 1 geocoin with an icon that you don't have on your profile.

All finds must be in Maine. There are no date restrictions for this Challenge. Previous finds DO count, so you may already qualify.

If you can’t find a geocoin it can be your own,- if it is released on the same date in Maine.

This Unknown (Mystery) cache does NOT count toward the six Cache Types needed for the Challenge.

Your log on this page must include the date of your finds and the names of all the required caches (including the type) and the geocoin logged.

Note that you may NOT use caches you own (even if you found them some time ago and have since adopted them) and that all caches must still be active at the time you log your find in order to count towards the requirements of this cache. The exception to this rule is that you may count your own event cache which may or may not be active.

Bonus points for finding a benchmark on the same day, but benchmarks do NOT count toward your six. This will make your find that much more impressive and for that matter you don’t have to stop at six.

If you have questions regarding the requirements, please contact us.


Now tell us all about your One Busy Day! In your log please tell us about your adventures on That Busy Day. Please remember that the purpose is to tell everyone how busy your day was, and how you were able to find all the caches in one day.

Wow, this cache turned out to be a very busy day indeed. After the event we realized that we had all but one or two caches types we wanted. Back in PQI to find them and we had our list of not 6 but 8 different types with two new coin icons complete. On the last one trouble came, it was close to the border and a letterbox, approaching we noticed a green and white parked next to the location. Stopped and talked for a bit he did not know about geocaching and was not interested in our explanation so we moved on. After returning home from the event I noticed that there was a new letter box cache hidden the day before the event. If I had know this list would have 9 caches!
