How Geocaching Works

Geocache Description:

Caches with loads of favourite points are great! Whether you're the owner and are pleased that other cacher's appreciate your cache, or whether you are the finder as you know you're going to have good caching experience. But there are some caches that excel and have many, many favourite points.

This is a challenge cache that appreciates those caches and may even encourage you to hunt them down, because to find this cache, and qualify to log it, you will need to identify 5 (or less) caches that you have found (current or archived, it doesn't matter) that have a total of more than 5000 favourite points between them.

 A few things to note:

The cache is at the posted co-ords.

You can find the cache at any time (if you are working towards the challenge for instance) but can only log it as found if/when you qualify.

In your log you must include the five (or less) qualifying caches with their GC code, the date you found them, the number of favourite points at the time of logging your find, and the total favourite points (ie the qualifying number total).

Here's the checker:

If the above criteria are not met then I may delete your log (and I'd really rather not).

When I wrote this (29/5/17) I qualified for this challenge having found:

GC43, Europe's First, found 21/2/17, 1988 favourite points

GC4C35, Cuckoo Cache (could be anywhere), found 6/8/16, 1502 favourite points

GC5A7DW, Trafalgar Square, found 15/1/16, 1139 favourite points

GC6F12, London - Beatles Abbey Road, found 15/1/16, 1056 favourite points

Giving me a total of 5685 favourite points for my top four caches found.

The cache is placed for a fairly easy find with easy access from the main road (not wheelchair accessible though) with parking very close by. Obviously you approach from the small road NOT the dual carriageway!!
