How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

This is a Challenge cache designed to be equally suited to geocaching newbies as well as veterans. Complete the challenge (details below), then find and sign the cache at the posted coordinates.

On September 23, 2010, I found “6 Cachers Cache” (GCYTAJ). Prior to this find, the cache had not been found for over 18 months, which led to this idea for a challenge cache:

Find a cache that has not been found for at least one year.

Ground rules:

  • The qualifying find must be at least one calendar year after the previous find, and can be anywhere in the world. Any kind of cache type counts. Time will be determined by the "Found It" log dates on that cache's page (unless you can provide photographic proof otherwise). FTFs do count (use the date the cache was published for reference). For example, a valid resurrection would cover 2/3/13 to 2/3/14, but a find on 2/2/14 would be a day short and not qualify.
  • The find(s) must occur on or after the published date of this cache (12/19/10) and must be before you sign the log for this cache. If you have resurrected multiple caches, then you qualify as a Resurrection Specialist (see below). For this, I encourage you to keep a Bookmark List or use Project-GC or GSAK to keep track of your totals.
  • The find must be your first for that particular cache; repeat finds do not count. Cache owners cannot find their own caches.
  • No replacement finds allowed (wherein you replace a disabled or missing cache) - this is to encourage the cache owner to do maintenance. Along those same lines, you must find and sign a physical cache: virtual finds or finds logged ‘with cache owner permission’ do not count. Caches that have been archived at any time also do not count.
  • In your log, post: the cache you found and the length of time between finds. If that number is large enough – currently over 5 years! – then congratulations: you will have made the Top Ten list.

Once qualified, go to the posted coordinates to find the cache and sign the log. There is an unactivated geocoin for the first finder. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to email me. Hopefully this one will not lie dormant for over a year. Now go resurrect a cache! Extra credit if the cache you resurrect hasn't been disabled since the last find...

It probably goes without saying that there can be some epic adventures behind these resurrections - click the cache links above and read about them!!!

Update (4/2/11): A new Top Ten list for "Resurrection Specialists" has been added for those of you that have already found this cache but have since re-qualified with other caches. If you happen to have multiple cache resurrections before finding this cache, your oldest effort will count toward the Top Ten Finders list.

Point in clarification (7/16/11): Cache resurrections after you have already logged this cache found will count toward the "Specialist" list but will not count toward the Hall of Fame list, so make your original Found log count!

Note 1/19/12: I do my best to keep up with all the found logs and posted notes, so please do not hesitate to let me know if I have been negligent or miscounted your totals. Also try not to edit existing posts as I will not receive automatic notification that way. Thanks.
