July 31 – GeoJaanipäev 2016 Mega Event Trackable

Hello, Mrs Hg137 here.

GeoJaanipäev 2016 Mega Event Trackable

GeoJaanipäev 2016 Mega Event Trackable


It’s been a while since we found a trackable, and here was one to be rescued from an uncertain fate … we were out geocaching in the woods of the Ashridge estate, following groups of geocachers from cache to cache. Something glinted underfoot, and we looked down. It was this geocoin, dropped and alone on the path. It was already partly hidden by leaf litter, and would have soon been hidden from view. But it was spotted, and saved!

Once retrieved, we waited a little while to see if whoever had it before woujld log it – no-one did – then marked it as in our possession. We did a little research on its history, too … it’s very, very new, being purchased at the Mega event in Estonia, being placed in a cache in Finland on 20th July 2016, picked up later the same day, and being taken straight from there to the Geolympix, another mega-event, on July 31st. A short life so far, but eventful and filled with big geocachers events.
