Geocache Description:


Welcome to the Oak Creek Challenge Trail


Cache is at posted coordinates but you must meet the requirements of this challenge in order to log a find on it.


Aesop's Fable is the story of the tortoise and the hare. The hare thought he would easily win so he stopped to take a nap to only wake up and find out the tortoise had already crossed the finish line. Slow and steady wins the race. To complete this challenge:


The Rules:


To complete this challenge you must meet all of the following conditions:

  1. Find 25 caches on the second day after they were published. Example: If a cache publishes on Jan 22 2013 and you find it Jan 24 2013 it would qualify.
    *The macro uses placed on date instead of published date. I will allow you to use either published date or placed on date but not a mixture of both. Since there are two options for qualification, there will be two FTF's.
  2. All caches types count

Additional Information:

  • This cache cannot be used to meet the requirements of this challenge.
  • Any posted "Found It" logs that do not meet the requirements of this challenge will be deleted.
  • If you have not met the requirements of this challenge, you may visit this cache, sign the log book and post a note on this page. When you have met the requirements of this challenge, you may then post a "Found It" log without having to revisit the cache.
  • Proof can be shown by running the gsak macro or by creating a bookmark or a list of qualifying caches.
  • FTF Honors go to the first person (or team) to sign and qualify, if multiple people signed at the same time and qualify, Co-FTF works. Please notify twofingersdown or bjmccacher with any questions.

The macro can be found here. Special thanks to omr419 for writing the macro.
