Geocache Description:

To claim this challenge, you must find a cache at least 500 feet (152 meters) below sea level. This challenge cache is at the above coordinates, but in order to log a find, you must have completed this challenge.

Your log must state the date, GC code, cache title, country and elevation for your qualifying cache. The opencycle maps, currently linked on pages, can provide the elevation of the cache.

CuteLilFuzzyMonkey and RetiredGuy have combined to put out the Retired Monkey Challenge Trail. In the tradition of challenge caches, at least one of the two of us has qualified for each challenge. Because we have very different caching styles, the challenges will be very tough for one person to complete all of them. Your progress will be tracked on the leaderboard. As with many good caches, our inspiration for many of these caches came from others, so thank you all!

For most of the caches in this series, we will provide a checker through Project GC to verify whether you have met the challenge. Often the script is written by others, so they might not word the results perfectly, but it will save a huge amount of time to check if you have met the challenge.

Currently there are some formatting issues with the output.

Here is RetiredGuy's qualifying cache verified using Project-GC Checker:
I have found 5 caches (1 needed) at least 500 feet below sea level
-1362 feet GC1PR3D: The Dead Sea
-709 feet GC2KF7B: Sea of Galilee and the Hot Springs
-686 feet GC207PK: In the Footsteps of Jesus - the Ancient Boat
-676 feet GC207NC: In the Footsteps of Jesus - Capernaum
-656 feet GC207K3: In the Footsteps of Jesus - Tabgha

Rules for the challenge caches in this series:
1) As with all caches, the decision as to whether a log is valid rests solely with the cache owner.
2) We have provided a verification tool whenever possible. It might not be perfect and is therefore not the final authority (see #1).
3) You may sign the log before completing the challenge. If you have do this, please use a "Write note" log to record your find and then a "Found it" log once you have completed the challenge.
4) Your log must contain enough information to prove you have met the challenge. We suggest using the verification checker if one is available. You do not always need to provide the entire output of the checker as it can sometimes be quite verbose.
