We received our Bronze EarthCache pin today! This is the result of our EarthCache finds on EarthCache Day a few weeks ago.
The package we received from the Geological Society of America’s EarthCache Masters Program contained our Bronze pin, a 2″ sticker that has the EarthCache logo on it and says “I am a Bronze EarthCache Master” and a short note stating:
“Congratulations! You are now a Bronze level EarthCache Master. Enclosed is your Bronze EarthCache Master pin. You are now only 3 more EarthCache finds (one in another state or country) and set up your own EarthCache to become a Silver EarthCache Master.”
It is ‘signed’ by the EarthCache Grandmaster. How cool is that?!
Now, while we already have 3 more EarthCaches (and one is in another state/country), we will have to work hard to create our own EarthCache. While we know that this is going to be a bit tough we are looking forward to the challenge. This will lead us to understand more about the Earth’s geological makeup which we have a strong interest in, and which is the purpose of the EarthCache program.
We put the pin on our knapsack (which we sometimes call ‘our second home’ ) to carry with us on all our Geocaching adventures to remind us that our world is definitely a special place.
Keep on cachin’!
