How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

This Cache is NOT at the Listed Coordinates. You must successfully complete the “Challenge” prior to finding and logging the final cache. Finds on this cache, which do not have documentation of completing the Challenge will be deleted.

The challenge is to Find and log 100 Travel Bug/ Coin/ Trackable Hotel Caches (Not 100 Trackables), anywhere in the World.

To qualify the Cache must include the designation of being a Travel Bug / Coin Hotel/ Motel/ Lodge/ Hostel/ Convention Center / Port / Rest Stop/ Wayside/ etc either in the Name of the Cache or the Cache Description. (Regular Caches that just happen to have a couple of trackables, do not count.)

You must have found the Travel Bug Hotel before or after the publication of this Challenge.

You may document your completion of the Challenge in an appropriate manner of your choosing (Bookmark List, List in Log, GSAK Query, Send us a spread sheet etc.) The documentation should allow us to determine the cache and when you found it (without looking though all the past visitors to that cache)

We encourage you to tell something about your adventure and favorite Travel Bug Hotel in your log (but not required)
