martin&lindabryn: Due to the out bake of the Covid19 virus.
I am temporarily disabling all of my caches
This is in part, is to discourage wide spread movement
and help in stopping the spread of the virus
I will reinstate the caches when the danger has passed.

How Geocaching Works

Geocache Description:

Issue 39 (Dec 18- Jan 19) pg45

The coordinates for this cache are as accurate as I can get, as there is no GPs signal at GZ.

Please read the cache description for a detailed location.

,Congratulations go to surfsky On his First to Find Also congratulations on his 2000 cache finds. .
To qualify for this cache. You must have found caches that have been published by 25 different reviewers, before you can log the find. Please read the description below.

Spare a thought for all those hard working reviewers out there

that give up their spare time, without reward,

to keep our hobby (addiction) alive and well. Please be kind to them!

Remember if your new cache is rejected it’s simply because it doesn’t comply with geocaching guidelines,

not because the Reviewer doesn’t want you to place it.

They are not 'Lords of the Cache Placement' and they want to publish your cache so they can also go and find it!

There are currently 19 active Reviewers based in England, Scotland and Wales, and if you have picked up some on holiday that makes it even easier. Also remember older caches may have been published by those who are no longer Reviewing.

a big thank you to Dave Palmer for the following list of past and present UK reviewers

Plus look at caches published 1st April 2012, there were a large number of Guest Reviewers who published caches in the SE. East Mids, and a couple of other regions. so there should be another 20/30 names available on caches published on that date.

Here is a link to a ever expanding list of reviewers of pre 2005 caches

All types of caches qualify.

No date restrictions at all.

Anywhere in the world.

In your found log you will need to list the GC numbers, cache names, along with the reviewer’s names, any logs that do not may be deleted.

If you use a well known cache organizer (think of an Army Knife from Switzerland) then there is a macro to help your search, look for ReviewerChallenge. (I suggest you run it over night the first time you run it, if you have a large database of finds split it into smaller sections.)

The difficulty reflects the challenge of hunting through logs and traveling, the terrain reflects the location of the cache

The Cache.

You attempt this cache at your own risk

Park in the lay by and walk back to the bridge, look at the river. IF it is in full flow abandon your quest for another time.

Looking up stream, climb over the low wall to your left and make your way down. Cross the stream, if it is safe to do so. Carefully climb over the rocks under the first bridge and continue on till you under the second bridge where the cache is located on your left.

“Hi Martin the Challenge Guru's opinion is that there needs to be one level for all.

So I would suggest splitting the Challenge into 4 levels.

10 Reviewers=Bronze

15 Reviewers=Silver

25 Reviewers=Gold

30 Reviewers=Platinum

Give that there are now caches in the UK published by over 50 Reviewers, after the 1st April Reviewers April Fools joke

An ultimate 40 Reviewers=Titanium

40 Reviewers being achievable without leaving the UK.”
