Geocache Description:

Fill The Grid With A Twist - La Crosse, WI

The cache IS at the posted coordinates! This cache is based on a cache placed in California GC2QVNQ Fill the Grid, With a Twist by I Challenge You. Thank you for inspiring this cool challenge and allowing me to place this cache in Wisconsin.

Please read the description below for logging requirements.

Numbers. We are fascinated by them. We love to celebrate milestones and goals met of various numbers. But for this challenge you will be going for a complete array of caches in difficulty, terrain and type.

The rating for the cache is based on the challenge to complete, as a traditional cache with a 2.5 mile walk/bike ride it would be rated 2.5/3. Please replace cache exactly as found, thank you.

To Log this Challenge The Challenge is to completely fill the Difficulty/Terrain grid of all 81 squares, but there is a twist!! Your qualifying finds must include at least one of each of the following cache types:


•Multi Stage



•Event (Regular)

•Letterbox Hybrid


•CITO Event

•Wildcard (Any other cache icon. Examples: Whereigo, Web Cam, Reverse, 10 Year Event, Groundspeak HQ, Maze Exhibit, Mega, or anything else that Groundspeak comes up with.)

The Twist: In your journey to fill the grid you must include the 9 different icons listed above BUT.... they must complete a "BINGO" of sorts on the grid. Meaning that your 9 icons fill up either a column down, a row across, or a corner to corner diagonal on the grid.

The TWIST:Below is an example of a corner to corner diagonal.

What Row, Column or Diagonal is entirely up to you!!
