How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

This cache is located at the above listed coordinates.
Please read the description below for logging requirements.

Logs not meeting the requirements will be deleted!

This past summer I met Zoothornrollo, a cacher from Texas, who shared with me some challenge cache ideas that we didn’t have in Northern California. They seemed like fun, and knowing that none of us can resist a challenge (unless we are told we can’t resist it), I decided to place them.

The concept of this challenge is easy enough: Find one cache in each minute of the 38° latitude for a total of 60 caches overall.


  1. Locationless caches, lab caches, traveling caches, and events do not qualify for this challenge.

  2. You may not use any cache that you have placed or owned to qualify.

  3. This cache may not be used as one of the qualifying caches for this challenge.

  4. Qualifying caches not limited to California. Caches from anywhere in the world can be used as long as they are in the 38° North Latitude.

  5. Use the posted coordinates for Unknown and Multi caches.


You may show your qualifying caches by making a public bookmark, posting a screen shot, or include them in your log. Be sure to include the Posted Minutes, Cache Name, GC Code, Type and Date Found in your post. I will verify all finds. Feel free to sign the log at any time but don't log a find until the requirements have been met.

I extend a hearty "Thank you!" to jellis and nozy nabor, who pointed out this Project Geocaching checker. No GSAK required!
