This is a challenge cache, so you must complete the challenge in order to log a "Found it" for the cache. Feel free to visit the cache and sign the physical log anytime you wish, but you cannot log it online until you qualify.
In addition to finding the cache and signing the physical log, to qualify for a "Found It" online, you must:
Find more caches each year than you did the previous year for 5 consecutive years (you choose the 5 years).
This information can be found on the “Statistics” page under your “Profile” page. Please see image below:
1) 2008 0
2) 2009 10
3) 2010 1889
4) 2011 4719
5) 2012 5733
Only years that you were a member of geocaching.com count (the year before you joined geocaching.com cannot be included in this challenge). Years before or after your selection do not matter.
The Difficulty/Terrain level shown takes into account both finding the actual cache container and completing the challenge.
***This is the important part: Please upload a photo/screen shot of your statistics yearly breakdown (like the above sample) or provide a list including the years being used followed by the number of finds you had those years. Also, be sure to set your statistics as "viewable" for at least 3 months, so that your claim can be verified.***
Congratulations to rebelex for the FTF honors!
