I think it dilutes the whole concept of souvenirs unless they're going to group them or something on the stats page for this. It irritates me to the point I don't want to cache because I don't want them in my list. It ranks right up there with the "challenge" idea they had a while ago which was just plain silly.

ARGGGGHHH!!! So I'm a hypocrite. I found a cache at lunch time today.

Pooh's Pal just dictated his log for today's find. He thinks that souvenir is "awesome." Since he can hardly ever find a cache big enough to trade toys anymore, why not give the kid a digital toy? Rolling Eyes

Does anyone know the time frame for logging these souvenirs? Is it a week or two like most of the others? It would be interesting if people went to log today's finds tomorrow, but the August 1 souvenir was no longer available... Twisted Evil

That is what I'm hoping for. Usually I log finds right away. But I might be willing to wait several days to log a find if needed.

First day nearly over and no souvenir for me. So that means I've got a one day no souvenir streak going!! LOL

I went out and got my souvenir today.

I think it will be fun to try to get them all.

It's an excuse to go cacheing which always is fun plus you get a little something extra. It's a win win.

Sure it doesn't really mean anything but in the end it will make me happy.

It's about you and your caching experience, whatever it is. Good luck, Error3!

Waiting to see if an "August Souvenir Virgin" page pops up on Facebook.

Day 1- no souvenir for me.

Well, we're seeing that some are logging challenges that they actually found another time to get their souvenir today. Oh well. We did log a challenge, but we actually found a cache, too.
