What are LAB caches?
LAB caches are special type of caches, that could contain
inovations and test new ideas to make geocaching even better. Their first appearance in
Europe was at special Mega event in Prague "Skorabky" on 15th of December 2013. Later on,
in February 2014 Groundspeak tested ideas of cachers and every Premium cacher got chance to
create and place LAB cache as part of project "I LOVE GEOCACHING". From May 2014 Groundspeak
implemented LAB caches to the statistics in limited amount.
Nowadays it is possible to find LAB caches only during certain Mega events that have received permission from Groundspeak to create this unique and rare type of cache. These LAB caches should replace caches that are created for Mega events and later on nobody maintains them.
