This summer there are 3 new souvenirs you can earn (plus one for International Geocaching Day). Premium members will be sent a secret puzzle one week before the souvenir can be earned. Solving this puzzle will tell you exactly what you need to do to earn your shiny new souvenir. This gives the premium members a heads up and allows for a little extra planning that might be necessary.
Cachers could earn the first of the souvenirs by finding a geocaching with 10 or more favorite points on July 30 or 31.
My boyfriend and I had a trip to Cleveland planned for that weekend so I picked out a cache that was along our route home that would qualify for this. I chose “Auto Art” GCJ8M8, a virtual near Erie, Pennsylvania, which had over 400 favorite points.
When we pulled up I was blown away. There were 7 or 8 sculptures all made out of old cars or pieces of cars. There was a car that was turned into a bumblebee, one that was a gigantic spider and a dinosaur made out of various vehicle parts.
Did you get your souvenir? What cache did you find with 10 or more favorite points?
I made a short video clip of all the sculptures. You can check it out here.
