Geocache Description:

Do you believe in "Oldie but Goodie"?
Are you obsessed with caching?
Do you want a challenge that skips those quickie micros?
Answering YES to any (or all) of these questions qualifies you for the newest
Challenge cache:


The

Oregon

History Challenge!


At this time there are 22 caches in Oregon that were placed during the first year of Geocaching (5-3-00 to 5-3-01). The challenge is to find them all (hiders count as finders), then e-mail me and when I've verified the finds you'll be able to log this cache. The D/T rating is because at least one of the caches is a 3.5* difficulty and one is a 5* terrain, the actual cache is much easier, but I'm not saying by how much.

Only those who qualify (completed all caches) can post finds for this cache, even if you find it with someone who does qualify.

Final Coordinates: You will be able to find the final coordinates to this cache while on the hunt of all of the caches, if for some reason you happen to miss the coordinates or are not able to figure out where the final coordinates are by the time you complete all of the caches, the cache owner will give you a hint to help you along the way.
