Geocache Description:

“The Little Quest series has always been a magnet for kooks, publicity seekers, hopeless romantics and others with a shaky hold on reality. But there are those for whom the unattainable has a special attraction. Usually they are not experts: their ambitions and fantasies are strong enough to brush aside the doubts which the more cautious may have. Determination and faith are their strongest weapons. At best, such people are regarded as eccentric; at worst, mad.” – Walt Unsworth

48 part, England-wide multi. A major, major accomplishment to complete. Over 45 cachers have combined to create this series, one of the largest collaborated efforts in the world.

In order to find the LITTLE QUEST FINAL, you will need to find every LITTLE QUEST cache, one per county, which will contain a number. Add the numbers together to get the co-ords for this one. Simple.

Why "Little Quest"? Well, this cache - the final - is a micro. No messing with big prizes, coins, cheating, etc etc, just a plain simple cache hunt and the pride of the find.

According to Wikipedia, there are 47 ceremonial counties in England. Ceremonial counties are the "traditional" counties. This means that towns like Bolton and Wigan are classed as Lancashire, and the West Midlands still exist. Over 45 UK Geocachers have combined to create this series - it is a real collaborative team effort. If you have hidden a cache in the series, you are of course entitled to complete the series.

The 47 caches that lead to this final are all standard-sized boxes. Now, the final could of course had a wonderful prize. A Geocoin, perhaps. But it would have had to have been a really, really posh one. And it couldn't have had any old trinkets in it. And it probably couldn't even have been an ordinary ammo box! But then again... it could just be a micro... couldn't it?

We shall go on to the end
We shall cache on the footpaths
We shall cache by the river and by the lakes
We shall cache with growing confidence and growing strength in the cities
We shall complete the Little Quest, whatever the cost may be
We shall cache on the beaches
We shall cache on the landing grounds
We shall cache in the fields and in the streets
We shall cache in the hills
We shall never surrender!

The difficulty / terrain of this as a standalone cache is approximately 2.5/2.5.

It should take around an hour to complete, and is a waterproof preform micro.
