Geocache Description:

- The Coordinates listed are NOT TO THE ACTUAL CACHE -
Final Coords will be sent to you once your completion is verified.

Now that many people have completed the Oklahoma Delorme Challenge, it is time for a new challenge. This is it:


Congratulations to John52 for FTF!



What is the All Counties Challenge you ask? It is fairly simple to explain, but completing it will be anything BUT simple! The image above shows a map of all 77 counties in the State of Oklahoma. The final cache coordinates can be obtained by successfully finding a cache in each County.

There are some guidelines though...Didn't think it would be that easy did you? Guidelines for this Challenge:
  • Generally accepted rules, guidelines and conditions for logging a cache find apply. These must be bona fide caches listed on Geocaching.com that you have personally (physically) found and logged.
  • Sorry, but only PHYSICAL CACHES count toward this Challenge. NO VIRTUALS, EVENT CACHES, or EARTHCACHES!
  • YES! You may submit caches that you found prior to the creation date of the "Oklahoma 77 Counties Cache Challenge".
  • I will go off of the posted coordinates for a cache (including multicaches and puzzles) when determining in which County a given cache falls.


Geocaching was meant to be FUN so have fun with this cache. If you want to add your own twist to your finds DO IT. I am truly confident that the Oklahoma geocachers who accept this challenge will have an adventure worth remembering, and will tell others about it in their logs.
How can I play?
Since ITATN is no more, it has ceased to be! it's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! it's a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed it to the perch it'd be pushing up the daisies! It's metabolic processes are now 'istory! it's off the twig! it's kicked the bucket, it's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-WEBSITE!!

So anyway, if you will just make a public bookmark list with all 77 of the caches you found for this challenge, then email me a link to the list. MY email is rbryanhull@gmail.com
Either link me to a shared bookmark list containing all your claimed finds and specifying which county each cache is in, or attach a text file listing the following information for each of the 77 required caches: County Name, Cache Name, Cache "GC Number", and the date of your "found it" log. Do NOT send me GPX files using the proprietary Groundspeak extensions to the GPX namespace, or otherwise relying on pocket query data obtained from Geocaching.com.
Review Process:
Once I hear from you, I will review your submission of finds in order to verify completion of the cache requirements. Please be patient with me as I verify the caches. I will go in the order they are received but preference will be given to finders using the INATN website method for verification. Once everything checks out, I will send you an e-mail with instructions, including the correct coordinates to take you to the final cache, and some background information about the cache location. The find cannot be logged until the physical container is found and the logbook inside is signed.
Feel free to post notes letting others know that you have accepted the challenge, and your progress!

Congratulations to these geocachers who have completed the Oklahoma 77 County Challenge!
