Quite unintentionally started a consecutive day find streak last December and somehow it's still going. As of today, I've got 270 consecutive days with at least one find. It's gotta end sometime. I'm wondering if anyone has heard of any caches that call for long streaks in order to claim them. Or any other reason why I should continue. Once I stop, I can't see starting up again. At the moment I'm thinking I'll keep it going to get a full year. Any thoughts?

There are a handful of challenge caches that require 365 or 366 consecutive days. We don't have any in Manitoba, but there are some.

My streak was started with the objective of completing 365 days in a row. When that came and passed, I decided to go for 500 days just because.

There is one cache in Minnesota that requires 365 consecutive days of caching. Other than that there is the OBG bingo Manitoba and Saskatchewan editions.

Just came across a cache a day for 500 days in a row in Arizona (GC2GF58):

Looks like my goal of 500 days in a row is not just for nothing...

My find today marked Day #731 in my consecutive day find streak. So that is two full years plus a leap day! Or double blackout in OBG Bingo. Someone stop me before I set a new goal! Better yet, someone find me tomorrow, tie me up, and keep me in the trunk of their car until the day is done. Pleeeeze!

Hey KeeGee, I bet when you wrote this you never imagined going almost another 1,000 days in a row!
