The geocaching community is attempting to break the record for number of accounts that logged caches in a single day. Currently that number stands at 56,654. Even one log on 10-10-10 counts since we are tallying how many accounts log a cache, rather than the number of caches logged.
By the way, does anyone know how to display the souvenir image on their profile page. Any help on this would be appreciated.
