Geocache Description:

Finally, a use for DNF's!

I didn't come up with the idea for this cache on my own. In researching another type, 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 plan to do a few, but if anyone else wants to do the rest, I won't mind.

Please read the description below for logging requirements.

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 you must have previously:

Logged one hundred Did Not Finds.

Why are so many cachers reluctant to log DNF's? It helps the cache owner know there might be a problem with a cache, or help the owner as well as other cache finders get an idea of difficulty. And there's nothing wrong with being human and sometimes missing the cache. Log those DNF's 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, no need to run a PQ (which won't tell you anyway).
  1. From your Quickview
  2. Click on "Geocaches" (2 to the right of Quickview)
  3. Click on "Didn't find it" (the total number appears right at the top)

While on that screen, take a screen shot of the top part of the page showing your username, the number, and at least the last DNF you had. Please post it with your log.

The cache is at the posted coordinates. Since this is in the woods just off the bike path, there may be poison ivy or thorns.

Cache is a standard Ammo Can with a bit of nice swag.

Logs without the appropriate picture will be deleted.

Winter / Snow Rating: Difficulty: 2.5 out of 5  Terrain: 2.5 out of 5 (1 is easiest, 5 is hardest)
