Have you heard, geocachers from around the world helped to decipher the intergalactic communication that HQ received the week of June 17th, 2024.  The message said:

Hello, earthlings! We have come across a reference to “Geocaching.com” on a metal creature roving the planet Mars. It seems this ‘geocaching’ is an activity meant to further exploration and community. We would like to better understand this interesting human activity and we are traveling to Earth to learn more. We only hope we’ll have enough fuel in our spaceship to keep exploring!

HQ is excited to take the opportunity to further intergalactic friendship!  The friends from outer space are here and having a blast geocaching, but now they need our help.  Their spaceship is running out of fuel, which they need in order to continue exploring other planets and galaxies.  Luckily for us, we’re able to help them by doing what we do best: GEOCACHING!!  The fuel their spaceship runs on is positive energy and what better way is there to build positive energy than getting together with friends and finding geocaches?

The Cosmic Quest starts on July 22 and goes through September 1 as we all help our friends fuel their spaceships.  During Cosmic Quest, different geocaching activities will generate different amounts of fuel.  If we reach 15 million units of fuel, the spaceship will be all set to launch our friends to their next cosmic destination.

Come join us to kick of your Cosmic Quest at the local library.  We will have a meeting room open for all to join us start our special mission.  To kick of everyone’s Cosmic Quest I will have food & drinks for all those that attend.  Please log your WILL ATTENDS and include head counts if you are logging for more than one individual. 

I will also have trackables to give away to the first 18 geocaches that attend the event.  We will activate these trackables and see how far they go during the Cosmic Quest.  If you want to attach a special hitchhike to your trackable, please remember to bring that with you to the event.
