How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

First things first, please be aware that the cache IS at the posted coordinates, BUT, you must read and follow all of the requirements to log this cache!

Failure to follow the listed rules WILL result in your log being deleted.

Located in West Virginia Botanic Garden.

In order to log this cache as a find, you must first find and log a cache that has been hidden by another cacher whose official cache name begins with each of the 36 alphanumeric characters. The characters are A through Z and 0 through 9. Only the first character of the cacher's name counts.
Special characters at the beginning of a cachers name do not count. Special characters are ignored and the first A-Z or 0-9 after the special character can be used.

The rules:
1. All previous cache finds count - you do NOT start your count from the beginning.
2. All types of caches qualify as long as the cache owner's name qualifies.
3. Whatever name is listed on the cache page counts. If a cache has been adopted then the original cache placers name still counts as long as that name is on the cache page. Note: As long as that name is a an officially registered account.

4. Your finds can be in any state or country.
5. These must be caches listed on that you have personally (physically) found and logged. (General rules, guidelines and conditions, as stated by, for logging a cache find apply.)
6. No logging finds on caches you own will be allowed.
7. If you have others with you when you find the final cache, only those who have fulfilled ALL criteria for this cache will be allowed to log it as a find.
8. Finds without the proper verification/documentation WILL be deleted.

Remember, please follow these rules to maintain a level playing field for everyone.
Keep in mind we are primarily operating on the honor system here. Help keep it honest.

How do you track your caches? There are three options:
1. Create a bookmark list.
2. Create a list on your profile page.
3. Upload a picture, (screen capture), of a Word or Excel document showing your finds.

You must POST A LINK or SCREENSHOT of your 36 QUALIFYING CACHES on this page to log a FIND!

The final cache location is actually a difficulty/terrain rating of 2/2.5. The 5 for the difficulty rating is based on the difficulty of qualifying to log this cache.

And now for the fun!!!

Please post notes with any updates/links/photos or general progress at will!

And don't forget to put a WATCH on this listing to keep track of everyone's progress!
