Geocache Description:

With the new listing of Favorite Caches on it is time for a...

Favorites Cache Challenge!

The cache is at the listed coordinates. To log this cache you will need to first fulfill the following requirements.

  1. You must find and log 25 qualifying caches. In order for a cache to qualify, it must have received 10 or more Favorite points on All past, present, and future caches count, including archived and disabled ones, as long as they are still listed on “Variety is the spice of life", so the makeup of these 25 caches must include at least:
    • 3 Traditional Caches
    • 3 EarthCaches
    • 3 Virtual Caches
    • 3 ? Unknown (Mystery/Puzzle) Caches
    • 3 Multi-Caches
    • 10 caches of your choice. This can include Wherigo, Letterbox Hybrid, Webcam, Events, or any of the above.
    • 1 of the qualifying caches can be one that you own. - Ownership does have its rewards, and 1 out of the 25 qualifying caches can be a cache that you have placed.

  2. Favorites occur in every state, so your list must also include at least one qualifying cache (any type) from 3 different states.

  3. Create a bookmark to document your finds.
    1. There should be 26 caches in your list - this challenge cache and the 25 caches listed above that meet the requirements.
    2. Include the date that you found the cache.
    3. Include the states where the caches are located - must be three different states.
    4. Share and make public your bookmark list on this cache page. (Or, if you prefer, you may email your list to the cache owner.)

    The actual difficulty of the Final cache would be 1.5 You will be walking on an old roadbed up until the last 75', so you can actually make pretty good time. But there is a stream crossing at the bottom of the first hill.The usual stepping stone water crossing may or may not be above water depending upon recent rainfall.

    Note: Coldwater Springs' EarthCache (GC1AW1M) lies close by.

    Congratulations to lagrac on the FTF!
