A 12-12-12 Video Featuring You!

Signal, getting his picture taken

12-12-12 only happens once every hundred years, so we’re celebrating the best way we know how – by geocaching!

We’re asking you to be one of the many cachers who will join us to celebrate not only the date, but also the activity we all love. There are plenty of ways to join in: get outside and log a find, attend one of the many geocaching events being held around the world or come up with your own special celebration.

We’ll be commemorating the day with a special video project that you can be a part of. Due to our inability to be in multiple places at once (we’re working on it), we are collaborating with four vloggers (video bloggers) who will set out to create videos of their unique 12-12-12 geocaching adventures. If you want to be a part of the video too, just send in your still photos that capture how and where you spent the day.

The plan:

  • Twelve Geocaching.com employees, a.k.a. Lackeys, will venture out to find a special geocache together.
  • Four geocaching vloggers are going to celebrate the day their own way and send us their footage.
  • You post photos of your 12-12-12 adventure on our Facebook page (on 12-12-12, please) and you may be included in the video. Participation is highly encouraged!

On Monday, December 17, we’ll present the mash-up of all the adventures in the official Geocaching.com 12-12-12 video. The video will be featured on the Latitude 47 blog, the Geocaching.com Facebook page, and the Geocaching.com YouTube page.

    I do not use facebook and have no incline to do so ever due to my account being hacked and a lot of personal damage to friendships was done. Is there any other way that I and others in positions like mine can share our photographs of this day with you?

  • Char1ieJ

    Tweeted this… and plan to send in photos from the 12.12.12 Myrtle Beach Event. Photography and Geocaching – two of my fave hobbies.

    I would be more than happy to take a group photo at my event this evening….then I see you want the photos posted on Facebook. I guess those of us that have no desire to use that site cannot share their photos then?
