Space Coast Cachers Facing A New Challenge

     The folks from Space Coast Cachers are rising to the occasion.  They are taking on a great challenge - a cache a day for the next year.  You may be thinking this may be pretty feasible but I am not talking about finding a cache.  I am talking about placing a cache a day.  That sounds pretty wild to me.  I am anxious  to follow them and see how it is going.

     Here is a description of the 'plan', direct from Dale.
     Geocaching Challenges, love them or hate them they are here to stay. We have decided to embrace them and see what we can do about generating more interest in them here on the Space Coast. When you visit the Space Coast Geocaching Store you will not only be able to grab the #1 favorite traditional cache in the entire state of Florida, you can complete a challenge as well as capturing two different Munzees.

      Barb and I have decided to attempt to place one challenge every day for 1 year. Not sure we will be able to find that many places but we are going to try. We plan to host an event that will be challenge related. We understand many people do not like the challenges but if you put aside the fact that they do not count in your numbers they really can be a lot of fun and bring you to some really interesting locations that just cannot support a geocache. Besides, they do show up on your profile for everyone to see how many you have completed. So if numbers are what you are interested in then why not grab as many challenges as you possibly can? The other thing about placing a challenge is the fact that there is no impact on the environment, no maintenance required, for the most part no permission needed, and you do not have to be in your home area. You can place them anywhere of interest. The community will decide if you challenge is of good quality or not.

     So why not join us in embracing Groundspeak’s latest idea and place a challenge of your own. Or if you are not interested in that at least go out and complete a few of them to see just how much fun they can be. Sometimes we just need to step out of our comfort zone and do something goofy. You will be amazed at how good it will make you feel.

     You know that I will keep you updated so check back to follow this brave team.
