Day Zero Project: Completed No. 8
A Day Zero Project goal of P.J.’s has been completed!
Goal completed: Host 10 events (geocaching)
Date completed: February 29, 2016
Description: Though I don’t get out geocaching as much as I used to, I still love the events. It’s a great way to meet people, chat about the hobby, and enjoy a day. I thought hosting 10 would be a good goal.
Why I wanted to do it: The social aspect of geocaching really is fun. You have the chance to meet so many different people from all walks of life. There are different personalities, and so many nationalities represented. If you get to the major events, it’s truly amazing. Our area has gone through ups and downs with geocaching, so it’s always nice to have an event and give people a chance to gather, chat, eat, and whatever else.
How I did it: Basically, I just worked on and submitted 10 events. Some of them, others helped. Some were basic events where I did all the legwork. Some of the events required more pre-work (such as renting the place and/or getting it set up where we’d be etc.), while others were basically getting the date, the coordinates, and submitting.
Events are so different, yet can often be the same. For me, though, it’s always a lot of fun.
Below are the dates/names of each event I’ve hosted since this project started, along with the attended amount of people (as of this writing) in parentheses.

About P.J.’s Day Zero Project: Day Zero is a project where people come up with 101 things to do over 1001 days. I started the project on August 1, 2014 with an anticipated finish date of April 28, 2017. Goals will not be revealed until they are completed. A private list is at the Day Zero website and the list will be made public upon completion of the project. It’s my thoughts that if things are kept private, should I not do them, change or find a way around it, I’d only be cheating myself.
