“If you like to discover forgotten places, ancient structures lost in the forest, and fascinating views of cliffs and beaches, you can not miss this CITO event. The place needs a little love and as we like to take care of nature and its wonders, we will give ourselves the task of doing a bit of “housekeeping.” Yes, please!

A humble group of geocachers and muggles worked together to clean up a sizable heap of litter near the Persian Gulf. The cache page says, “There is usually an ice cream van.” I wonder if they got their ice cream at the end of the CITO?

We believe this two-person CITO on tiny Eneko Island, part of the Marshall Islands, was the most remote Spring CITO to ever occur. We’re ready to be proven wrong.

While we’re talking about extreme locations, we believe this CITO in Troms, Norway, was the furthest north. It may also be one of the most beautiful locations for a CITO.

For several geocachers, this was their first CITO and they came away with lots of smiles. As one log says, “This was my first ever CITO Event! And even though it was “only” picking up trash, it was actually quite tiring.”
