Nationwide Scavenger Hunt

Mission: SFS23

The Secret Order [of the Sasquatch] along with Blue Ridge Overland Gear, has initiated a nationwide scavenger hunt for the continental United States. The official Secret Order dispatch reads:

"Greetings friends! For all those willing, the #SFS23 (Search For Sasquatch 2023) operation has begun! This mission is designed to exercise your exploration and GPS navigation skills. Starting on July 18, 2023, eight Sasquatch* morale patches will begin appearing throughout the continental United States of America. Rough coordinates will be given for each patch and the first one to find the patch will be publicly declared the winner of that region. Additional reward is in store for each winner.

This scavenger hunt will begin in the Mid-Atlantic and subsequently be rolled out to the remaining cache zones.

*Sasquatch the Bigfoot, not the Squirrel.
