Welcome to Bucky's Challenge 2019

Bucky’s Burma-Shave Challenge will run from

April 27, 2019 to August 31, 2019

Iowa Geocachers Organization, along with Our Iowa Magazine, are happy to take you across the state to visit all 99 counties via the Our Iowa Magazine signs.

The first thing you need to do is print off the required "Bucky's Burma-Shave 2019 sign".


Next download the Bucky's Burma-Shave Sign waypoints GPX file this file contains the locations of the Our Iowa Magazine signs.

Visit the first sign in any of the locations, take a selfie photo, e-mail the photo as described below.

and the Bucky's Burma-Shave Cache GPX file.

This year, new geocaches have been placed near some of the Our Iowa sign locations to add to the fun! Not all of sign locations have geocaches. Simple log the geocache like any other geocache.

(check back frequently as more caches may be added)


The coordinates will take you to the first Burma-Shave sign in each series. Once there, you will need to take a picture with the following requirements:

A clear selfie of you with the "Bucky's Bruma-Shave 2019" sign and the first Our Iowa sign in the background.

(follow your GPS, at some locations the last sign will be accepted)


Then email the picture to buckychallenge@yahoo.com

Include the county in the subject line and add your geocaching name in the body to get credit for the challenge.

The counties in the state will be divided again this year into 4 colors, green, red, orange, and yellow. Each submission will be entered in a drawing for the corresponding color of that county. See colored map below. You may only win one prize, but the more you enter the more chances you have to win. 

Drawings and prizes will be awarded during Hike-N-Seek Saturday night's dinner on September 14, 2019.

Did I mention a pathtag will be made too?

(*you do not need to be present to win, so contact information would greatly be appreciated*)
