Geocaching HQ organises world-wide challenges regularly. The Social Butterfly Challenge started on the 29. October 2018. Where else to track the progress other than your bullet journal?
I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I or my family use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
Earlier today my wife came up with the idea of having a tracker for the just started geocaching challenge. Here we are. A few hours later she sent over the pictures I can share with you.

What are these challenges? Geocaching HQ tries to spice up the game with badges to earn as a result of taking part and achieving given goals in the given time frame. This time the challenge is about collecting 70 points individually in a bit more than a month.
You can get points by:
- 5 points for logging a Found it on any geocache
- 10 points for logging a Found it on a geocache with 10 or more Favorite points
- 15 points for Attending any event
- 1 point for Dropping off a trackable
Not all challenges planned at times we can go for them. This one was just right. We had a planned trip to some place and what could be best then combining two fun. First we just stopped at two geocaches close to each other. Then my wife changed strategy. She decided to look up geocaches with more than ten favorite points. The benefits of going for those geocaches were double. First we collected ten points by finding them. And then they were a lot more fun and got me new material to share with you. There is a reason for geocachers giving favorite points.

What you might need
All your gears and some good weather. If you are already really addicted all you need is a nice pen. It does not even need to be nice.

My wife bought sets of these as a result she has some she do not use. I always need a pen for geocaching that is thin and writes nicely so I started using the 0.3 mm for signing log books. I had to realise I should have started using them a long ago. They are perfect to sign a nano as well. Not to mention they were used to create this beautiful tracker.
