How Geocaching Works

Geocache Description:

I came up with the idea for this cache on my own. But in researching it, I found that there were a few different series of "Century" caches in a few different states. I think one of the first was in South Carolina, but Tennessee, Indiana, Wisconsin and Utah all have at least some of the series. I took much of the text from these. I plan to do a few of the Challenge of the Century series, but if anyone else wants to do the rest, I won't mind.

The cache is at the posted coordinates. Please read the description below for logging requirements. Hide difficulty is rated 2 stars. Since this is in the woods right off the bike path, there might be poison ivy or thorns. There will be plenty of mosquitoes in the summer.

Cache is a peanut butter jar. Please note that the cache name has nothing to do with the amount of clothes you should (or should not) be wearing while Geocaching. Thank you.

We are fascinated by them.
Milestones celebrate progress made and goals reached.

The number 100 denotes a certain sense of accomplishment.

Please accept this series of Challenge Caches as a celebration
of your achievements or as a goal to complete.

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

Found at least one cache a day for one hundred consecutive days.

Demonstrate this logging requirement any way you see fit; reference your profile, text in the log, attach an image, create a Bookmark list, etc. In your log, please put the beginning date, end date, and length of your streak. If is it still going, just put "today" as the end date.

Some things I have learned while doing my streak:
  • If you live in a rural area, this will be more difficult because caches are farther away and you will log many miles.
  • Wintertime will be difficult, especially if you work, because about the only time you have light to cache is during lunch. Not to mention the snow, especially this past year.
  • If you are a cacher with thousands of finds already and don't have the streak yet, then this will be real difficult because you have probably found all the nearby caches.
  • This is one cache newbies have an advantage. Retired people too.

Don't forget to pace yourself.

Need just a little fix everyday? Don’t worry, I’m sure you can quit any time you want. Right?

Now this is what a Challenge Cache is supposed to be! If you enjoyed this Challenge...please throw me a bone with a favorite point.

Please bring a writing utensil.

Congratulations to The NVG for FTF #727!
