Bigfoot (also known as Sasquatch) is a large, hairy, bipedal creature said to inhabit forests, especially in the Pacific Northwest. If you hope to encounter one while geocaching, you're in luck! You can embark on your own personal “Bigfoot Search” by locating geocaches hidden with first-of-its-kind clan of Sasquatches in picturesque North Bonneville, Washington. Along the designated two mile paved “Bigfoot Discovery Trail” you will learn about this unique area and why these Bigfoots (Bigfeet?) were drawn to this serene area. Coord.info/GT3E

In 2011, a group of geocachers from the Netherlands set a geocaching record when they found 15 geocaches in 15 countries within 24 hours. Six years later, a group of Finnish geocachers were up to the challenge to break this record.
Harjus, Rimaju, Weellu and Wesbridge embarked on Geotrip ‘17 on April 15, 2017 from the Netherlands just a second past midnight. They reached their final destination in Poland at 10:25 pm the same day 22 hours and 25 minutes later, setting the new record! http://bit.ly/2skLl9c
