How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Welcome to "Challenge Alley". This cache is accessible from the bike trail.


The cache IS at the posted coordinates!


Please read the description below for logging requirements.

Numbers. We are fascinated by them.  We love to celebrate milestones and goals met of various numbers.  One hundred always seems to be a significant number that gives us a sense of accomplishment.

Logging Requirements:

To log a “Found it” for this cache, in addition to finding the cache and signing the logbook, you must have:

Logged one hundred Did Not Finds.


Multiple DNF's on a single cache do count towards your total.  Demonstrate this logging requirement any way you see fit: reference your profile, text in the log, attach an image, create a Bookmark list, etc.

Why are so many cachers reluctant to log DNFs?  It helps the cache owner know there might be a problem with a cache.  It helps the owner as well as other cache finders get an idea of difficulty.  There’s nothing wrong with being human and sometimes missing the cache.  Log those DNFs and let the record stand.  (By the way, if you log your 101st DNF on this cache, well, let’s just call that ironic.)

If you're not sure how to get your total, there is an easy way:
    1. From your Quickview
    2. Click 'Show all logs for:' 'Caches'
    3. Click 'Show:' 'Didn't find it'
You will have a total at the top.
