To claim this challenge, find the oldest active cache in five U.S. states including the District of Columbia. 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 GC code, the date, the state and the cache name of the qualifying cache. Here is a bookmark list of the oldest active caches by U.S. state including the District of Columbia. Please contact the CO if you believe this list needs to be updated.
CuteLilFuzzyMonkey and RetiredGuy have combined to put out the Retired Monkey Challenge Trail. At least one of the two of us has qualified for each challenge. Because we have very different caching styles, it 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 the caches in this series, we have provided a checker through Project GC to verify whether you have met the challenge. You can also go to the Verification Page to see for which of the challenges you have qualified.
You can use the above link to check your progress.
