How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

This is the third of four dated based challenge caches. The cache is a black tape wrapped container.

The cache can be accessed from the upper car park of Slieve Foye Forest, the entance to which is on the Carlingford - Omeath road and is signposted 500m ahead.

There are picnic tables at the car park and on a pleasant day the views make for a nice spot for lunch.

From the car park you have only a 250m walk, crossing one stile. There is a slight height gain but it is not steep. You can follow sheep tracks towards the cache. A route one approach is possible but I would recommend following the track a little further and looping around the prickly bushes. Your choice.

The cache is reasonably well hidden, but since the challenge is date based I have left an obvious help pointing towards the hiding spot.

This is a Challenge cache. So in additional to signing the log, you must satisfy the Challenge criteria as well.

As part of the upgrade to we are now provided with some statistics, one of which is "Finds For each Day of the Year".

In order to attain the Gold standard you must have found a cache on 365 of the 366 possible days in the year.

If you have your statistics publicly viewable, I will be able to check you meet the criteria. If you choose to keep them private you can either list all 365 dates with one cache found on those dates (well I have to offer!) or you can take a screen shot of that part of your statistics, upload it to the gallery section of the cache or upload it to a photo sharing site and send the link to me via my profile.
