Geocache Description:

I have been wanting to do a cache like this for a while since spotting something similar in the USA. The description below has been slightly modified from the original 'Fizzy Challenge' cache in California and then Utah.


Disclaimer: This cache is not for everybody.


To be able to claim a find on this cache, you will need to first find at least one cache of every difficulty/terrain combination (81 unique combinations). As part of those finds, you'll need to have at least one of each of the cache types below (the different cache types DO count against the 81, so if you find a 2.5/2.5 multi-cache, it fulfills both requirements.) The caches can be found anywhere in the world, not just in Somerset.

How do you track your caches? There are a few options:
1) Create a bookmark list and keep track (this is the preferred method as others can view progress)
2) Upload your My Finds PQ to It's Not About The Numbers
3) Use FizzyMagic's FindStats Program (requires download)
4) Use a program such as excell to create a spreadsheet
5) Post a Note to this cache page and edit it as you work on the challenge.
***Whatever method you choose, please include a clickable link to the caches, and/or your logs when you submit your final list.


Basic rules (to keep things easy):
- All PREVIOUS cache finds DO NOT count - you start from "0" from the point you register your intention to start this cache (Just to be clear; this means registering your intent on this cache page (otherwise there is no way of knowing the date you start the cache)),EXCEPT you may log a previous Webcam cache find but only if you have found all such caches and wish to complete this cache, only finds post the date of the anniversary of this cache's publication count
- All finds (except the Event and CITO Events) must be on caches that were published BEFORE this cache reached its 2nd anniversary (i.e. 4th March 2012 or earlier)
- No rating changes of existing caches will be accepted as counting towards your goal, in other words the rating of the cache when you found it will be counted
- Generally accepted rules, guidelines and conditions for logging a cache find apply
- These must be caches listed on Geocaching.com that you have personally (physically) found and logged
- No logging finds on caches you own will be allowed but you are encouraged to consider arranging a meaningfull CITO event with other cachers in your area to improve the environment.
- 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.
- When you complete the challenge post a note to the cache page with a link to your bookmark list. You will then be given the necessary hint to the final cache. In accordance with the GC rules you do not need to make contact with the cache owner after completing the challenge, just post a note on the cache page and once I have confirmed you have completed the requirements you will receive a hint to help you find the cache. The cache is at the posted co-ordinates but you cannot log a find without completing the quest.
- Finds without the proper back-up will be deleted
-This cache does not count as the 5/5 in the matrix. You must find a 5/5 before this one

Please keep to these simple rules to keep things fun for everybody.
