Leap Outdoors on February 29th

What are you doing with your extra day this year? Geocachers around the world are planning on taking advantage of this 366th day of the year. has even provided extra motivation to get outside and geocache – a Leap Day souvenir to all accounts logging a cache or cache event that day.
I’ll let tell you more about their Leap Day efforts:

“You'll also help in a record-breaking attempt. Last Leap Day, way back in 2008, some 36,696 distinct accounts logged an "Attended" or "Found it" on a cache. We're aiming to double that number this year with at least 73,392 distinct accounts logging a cache on February 29. In order to count toward the goal, people only have to log a single cache.

“More than 900 Event Caches are already planned for Leap Day. If the 25,000 adventurers expected to attend these events log their attendance on the 29th, we'll be more than 30% of the way toward our goal. But we still need your help in order to reach 73,392! So talk to your fellow geocachers, your friends, and your co-workers; tell them about going geocaching (and logging their find) on February 29. We will be reporting our progress toward the goal on the Latitude 47 blog and the Facebook page.”

Even Flat Stanley is going to geocache on Lead Day!

Whether you’re a geocacher or not, get outdoors and enjoy this extra day of the year.
