A geocaching streak is a continuous period during which one has found a geocache every day.

Some geocachers have maintained streaks on their own, just because they enjoyed it. For example, kablooey maintained a geocaching streak for more than 10 years between 2003-07-16 and 2013-09-12.

Some geocachers have maintained streaks to qualify for streak challenges.

In 2013, Groundspeak encouraged members to maintain a 31-day streak during their 31 Days of Geocaching promotion, which awarded a Souvenir for each of the 31 days of August 2013.

[edit] Tips for Maintaining a Geocaching Streak

[edit] Planning

The key to maintaining a geocaching streak is planning. When will your schedule make it easier to find caches further from home? When will you be busy and need a quick easy find? When will you not be traveling and need a cache to find close to home? When during the day is it usually easiest for you to stop to search for a cache? Don't wait until 11PM at night to figure out how you're going to find a cache that day to continue your streak.

[edit] Routine

Make finding a daily cache part of your routine. Quick easy caches are perfect for this. Find a cache during your commute or while running errands. When commuting or traveling, you can vary your route to access new areas with new geocaches to find.

[edit] Patience

Simply put, don't find them all right away. Save the nearby easy caches for days you're busy and need a nearby easy cache to continue your streak. (That may mean giving up an FTF or two.) Don't find all the caches in an area; save some for later return visits.
