How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

This is a challenge cache. The cache is at the posted coordinates, but you must meet the requirements listed below before logging a find.

In order to complete this challenge and log the final cache, you must have found at least 10 different Geocaches on the exact same day, that were each placed in 10 different years.

• No Double Logged "FOUND" caches allowed; Your log on each Geocache must be from the very first time you Logged "FOUND" on that Geocache.

• Once you have found the required caches to qualify for this challenge, you may then find the physical cache and sign the log, and then log your find online.

Here is a GSAK Macro that was written for a different challenge. GSAK Macro(11x11-year-challenge macro)
Use it against your FOUND caches. It works to identify days that one has found different combinations of years in a single day. If you have found at least 10 in a day, it will list the day, or days, you did it on under the "02 x 10 years in a day". This will help you in narrowing down the day or days you need to look at for your qualifying caches.

Verification Method::
When you log this cache you must include in your log which 10 years you found, and include your list of caches by GC number, cache name, date placed and the date you found them.

Your log should look similar in format to this:
