Geocache Description:


THE CACHE IS AT LISTED COORDS

Your goal is to find 4 different kinds of caches hidden by 10 different cachers:

  • You will need to find a total of 40 caches to complete this challenge, plus finding 1 additional cache for the final.
  • Note that the caches MUST be in IOWA
  • There is NO control date, so all previous finds count.
  • You will need to find caches hidden by your choice of 10 different cachers.
  • You will need to find 4 different types of caches hidden by each of the 10 cachers. Size, Difficulty and Terrain are unimportant.
  • You may vary your type of find per cacher.

THE FINE PRINT
  • No adopted caches - Must be the original cache placer's hide only. Neither the original placer nor the adopter can be counted on an adopted cache.
  • No temporary cache finds allowed. Only actual event or CITO attendance is acceptable to claim the event category.
  • No finding your own caches.
  • The "real" cache placer's name is the only one that counts, not aliases.
  • Note that the difficulty rating of 4.0 and terrain of 3.5 is based upon having to find 30 other caches first.
