The Good News: The Cache IS at the posted cords
The Bad News: You must read the cache page for requirements to log this cache!
This is a "Challenge Cache", Failure to follow the listed rules WILL result in your log being deleted.
Don't make me be the bad guy!
Disclaimer: This cache is not for everybody.
This cache was placed and created based on "Well Rounded Cacher" (The Fizzy Challenge) GC11E8Nand all of its counterparts.
To be able to claim a find on this cache, you will need to first find at least one cache of every difficulty/terrain combination (81 unique combinations). As part of those finds, you'll need to have at least one of each of the cache types below (the different cache types DO count against the 81, so if you find a 3.5/3.5 multi-cache, it fulfills both requirements.)
I've excluded LOCATIONLESS Caches as they've been phased out:
Needed Cache Types*
- Traditional Cache
- Multi Cache
- Mystery Cache
- Virtual Cache
- Letterbox Hybrid
- Webcam Cache
- Event Cache
- CITO Event
Optional Cache Types*
- Mega-Event - Adventure Exhibits - Wherigo - Locationless - Project APE
How do you track your caches? There are three options:
Create a bookmark list and keep track
Upload your My Finds PQ to It's Not About The Numbers
Use FizzyMagic's FindStats Program (requires download)
Basic rules (to keep things easy)
All PREVIOUS cache finds DO count - you do NOT start from "0" at this point
All finds (except the Event and CITO Events) must be on caches that were Published BEFORE this cache (June 14th, 2009) (to avoid "dummy caches" being listed just to meet the requirements)
Though the cache title on these types mention a specific state, your finds can be in any state or country.
No rating changes of existing caches will be accepted as counting towards your goal
Generally accepted rules, guidelines and conditions for logging a cache find apply
These must be caches listed on Geocaching.com that you have personally (physically) found and logged
No logging finds on caches you own will be allowed
If you have others with you when you find the final cache, only those who have fulfilled ALL criteria for this cache will be allowed to log it as a find.
Finds without the proper back-up will be deleted
This cache does not count as the 5/5 in the matrix. You must find a 5/5 before this one
Caches hidden but never intended to meet their D/T rating are ineligible. They're pretty obvious.
- NOTE: All caches logged as FOUND for this challenge cache must have been placed by the owner with genuine intent to meet the requirements of their D/T (Difficulty/Terrain) rating as outlined on Geocaching.com.
Please follow these rules to maintain a level playing field for everyone. Please keep the spirit of The Challenge in mind.
Please keep to these simple rules to keep things fun for everybody.
To get credit for this find (and keep your find from being deleted) you must post one of the following with your found log:
A link to a bookmark list showing all the caches that meet the requirements; OR
A link to your page on ItsNotAboutTheNumbers showing your finds.
You can check and validate your current finds by a few ways. Please be aware, though, these methods will not check against the date cutoff requirement
The final cache location is a 2/2.5. The 5/5 for the overall cache rating is based on the need to find a 5/5 to qualify to log this cache.
If you have already completed and logged THE FIZZY CHALLENGE elsewhere, you are welcome here as well!

Frequently Asked Questions:
The only questions answered will be those listed as notes on the cache page.
If the CO changes a rating after it is found, which rating applies - Read the PURPLE text (Line 7).
Can I log the cache ahead of time to save a trip back? - All requirements for completion of cache ARE REQUIRED to be completed prior to signing the log book as signing the log book (were supplied) constitutes completed of the requirements.
Note to guideline #9 Armchair caches cannot be considered for Fizzy Caches. Due to large amount of available armchair caches they may not be on the current ineligible cache list.
