Though many other qualified candidates were nominated, Groundspeak Lackeys selected these international and inspirational nominees.

Alexschweigert was recognized for sharing his love for geocaching and the sea with others by inviting them to experience a geocaching adventure like no other.Here are your nominees for the April Featured Geocacher of the Month. Some testimonials have been edited for length. Nominated by vbpad, Gwen and Terry, a.k.a. Milosheart, “have been very instrumental in the success of geocaching in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. They have been hosting a monthly breakfast in various locations in Fredericton and have organized a winter geocaching contest for the past three years, with the third annual wrap-up event just finishing this month. Not only have they put so much of their time into organizing events and contests, but they still take the time to greet and welcome new cachers in the area.” Nominated by geo-traveler, “Team Isle, Isle and Karl, a.k.a. Charly, together count for 163 years of life. Both have always been nature lovers and are in constant panic mode of falling rusty if they don’t exercise every day. For eight years now, Charly starts his laptop every evening and prepares the geocaching tour for the next day. Without fear, Isle and Charly search even for T5-caches in their hometown of Munich and in the near mountains of the Alps. They do not back off from crawling into dark and ugly tunnels, and they don’t fear high mountains or deep canyons if there might be the chance of a geocache. Night caching? No problem at all! I remember Christmas Eve 2008 with minus 20 degrees Celsius, when we hunted through the Holy Night for a cache whilst other families were sitting in front of their Christmas trees.”Frog Dog and Corker  Islecenter_img With several nominations under their belt, Frog Dog and Corker, a.k.a. Jerry and Gina, are best described by Mermaid&Hornytoad as “very active in geocaching. They host an event at least once a year, sometimes twice.
