How Did Your 31in31 Go?

August was a challenge–31 Days of Geocaching, in fact. Cachers across the globe were challenged to find a cache a day throughout the month of August.

I was hoping to make a run for this one, but life intervened! My dad had a stroke at my parents’ home in Alabama near the end of July, so the first week or so of August, I was with my dad in the hospital, where I needed to be. Then my grad school class started a couple of weeks ago, and it needed some time and attention. Meanwhile, there’s FT work and all the day-to-day stuff that gets in the way. I did manage to find a total of 37 caches on 15 days in August, so it could’ve been worse!

How did you do in August? Did you complete the streak?

  1. I am so sorry to hear about your dad having stroke . My father passed away in May so by the time this 31/31 rolled around I was ready for a diversion. I actually completed the month and got all the souvenirs. I recently started caching so now I want to get my numbers up. I think I will try another month after that I don’t know. My goal would be 365 straight .

    • Congrats on completing the month! So sorry to hear about your dad. Yes, geocaching is a great diversion, whether with other people or alone. My longest streak so far is 28 days. One of my goals is to fill in all 366 days with a cache. We’ll see how long it takes. 🙂

  2. My partner and I both managed to complete the entire month’s streak, sometimes finding the same caches together and sometimes finding different caches separately. Along the way we also attended several Northern Virginia Geocaching Organization (NoVAGO) events and ran into several of our fellow cachers on other days. All in all it was a great caching month for both of us.

    Best wishes for your father’s full recovery.

    • Glad you two has a fun (and successful!) month! I attended my second event ever during August, and it was a good time. I’ve found it often helps to look for caches with other people, but it’s a great feeling to find one alone too. 🙂
