An antipode is a point on earth diametrically opposite to a given point, or in other words, the other side of the earth. To claim this challenge, find a cache that is nearly antipodal to another find of yours. "Nearly antipodal" will be defined at 90% of half of the earth's circumference (24,901 miles / 2 * 90% or 11,205 miles). This challenge cache is at the above coordinates, but in order to log a find, you must have completed this challenge.
In order to log this cache, list the GC code, cache title, and country of your two qualifying caches and the distance between the two.
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.
You can use the above link to check your progress.
Here are RetiredGuy's qualifying caches generated using Project-GC Checker:
I found GCX77Z St Declan's Walk (Ireland) and GC1QF6P The Addington Water Tower (New Zealand) and they are 11,856 miles apart.
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.
