A Plea On Behalf Of Lonely Blue-Face Caches
At this moment, maybe in your neighborhood, there are caches that are lonely and neglected. They suffer alone, waiting for someone to come and log a smiley. Say you'll be the answer to a lonely cache that is suffering right now! Please... Complete this challenge! For just a little extra effort, you could rescue caches from loneliness, provide care and needs maintenance logs where needed, and put smiles on the faces of both you and lonely cache owners. This is your chance to say, "I won't sit idle while a lonely cache suffers!" Please find a lonely cache and log it online now!
To complete this challenge you must collect 100 points by finding lonely caches. Points are awarded as follows:
Each cache or trackable with no finds for 12 months or more = 10 points
Each cache or trackable with no finds for 24 months or more = 15 points
Each cache or trackable with no finds for 36 months or more = 20 points
For the purpose of this challenge, a lonely cache is one that has not been found in 12 months or more. Months will be determined by the calendar date. All caches must be found after the date this cache was published. Caches must not be archived at the time that you make the find. Please, no double dipping or revisiting caches for this challenge. You may count lonely caches that you find anywhere in the world as long as they are listed on Geocaching.com. If this cache happens to go lonely, you may count it as the final find on your list.
Please log your qualifying points to fulfill the challenge as follows:
GC# | GC/TB name/link | date last found - date you found = total points for the cache/trackable
Now, get out there, take the paths less traveled and enjoy the thrills of finding a few lonely caches!
Special thanks goes out to Printess Caroline who placed Only the Lonely Caches Challenge on which I based this challenge cache. I had a lot of fun fulfilling this challenge and have thought about finding lonely caches ever since. I hope that you will have similarly good experiences as you acquire points to log this cache.
Also, regarding group finds: They are allowed. Everyone in the group may count the lonely cache find. Not only that, anyone finding the lonely cache on the same day that it becomes no longer lonely may count that cache for this challenge.
