This is a Puzzles and Multis challenge cache which requires you to complete 30 puzzles and multis caches from the Geocaching.com pages (anywhere in the world is acceptable) and then to find a physical multi cache to log this cache. You are also required to log a list of the caches that you used to find this cache as part of the log (either as a bookmark list or as part of the log).
I decided to do a puzzles and multis challenge when I found that I only had puzzles and multis left in my 10km radius from home. I had been enjoying multis throughout the time I had been caching but found increasingly that I wanted the challenge of puzzles. Here is the actual cache details. To complete this challenge you must complete both parts of the cache as listed below to log this cache (and yes I will be checking)
1. You must find 30 caches that are either Puzzles (or Mystery) caches or Muti caches from Geocaching.com and they can be found in any country in the world. You may find any combination of these types of caches to qualify. I personally found 16 multis and 14 puzzle challenges when I attempted this challenge but you could also do 1 puzzle and 29 multis or 1 multi and 29 puzzles (or any other combination the choice is yours). Caches that have been found prior to this cache listing will also count towards this challenge - as well as any that you find after the challenge was listed. You must include in your log the caches that you found - this could be a bookmark list or written in the log itself.
There is no time limit on completing the caches but if you want extra challenge then you can set your own time limit. I was going to state that you had to complete the caches to log in 3 months but the regulations prohibit a time limit being included. I personally found all 30 of my caches for this challenge in 2 months (with an unproductive cache time in the middle of that time).
2. You must find a multi cache starting from the listed coordinates and log the physical cache to be able to log this cache. . This cache is not hard. I would be rating this as Terrain 1.5 and Difficulty 2.0 if I was listing this as a multi.
Waypoint 1 - Start Coordinates
The coordinates will bring you to a sign.
A = the number of the first scout group mentioned
B = distance dogs must be off lead from playground (2 digit figure)
CDD = street number of council
Next waypoint is at: S 37 45.A(B+A) E 145 0C.D(B+A)
Waypoint 2 - Signs
This cache is designed to highlight the playground at this waypoint. It is incredible and if you have geochildren or geograndchildren (or any other children) with you - I highly recommend that you let them play in this incredible playground. I found this playground as I was doing one of the nearby puzzle caches and I was totally amazed by it. You do not have to go into the playground to answer the questions to find the cache.
E = penalty for smoking in $ (3 digit figure)
F = number of fish on sign
G = number of animals that walking above you
The next waypoint is S 37 45.F(B+F+G) E 145 0C.D(D-G)(D-G)
Waypoint 3 - You will find this a place for adults and maybe children. You will be near a place to exercise.
H= number of blue horizontal poles (regardless of size!)
The final cache is S 37 4H.F(H+A)H E 145 (G+H). (ExH-B)
The final is a 1.5L sistema full of goodies that I have gotten from other caches. There is a FTF prize that is in the ziplock bag. Happy hunting and the cache is not hard to find - it is hidden in a traditional caching manner (which you will have found many a time in completing this challenge so I am not giving any hints!).
Please note that while finding the cache you don't need to go across the river in any shape or form and the total walk from wp1 to GZ is less than 1km - if you find that you need to go across the river or to get in your car you have some numbers wrong! Please recheck your numbers again.
****Congratulations to Littlemerpip on the FTF*****
