Geocache Description:


One of the few positives of the year 2020 was the time that I spent geocaching. When I was in Germany, I noticed a lot of challenge caches and was particularly intrigued by “Hamburg 360° - Challenge Cache” (I still haven’t completed that one; although I managed to complete 353 out of 360 degrees).

Unfortunately, the challenge rules have changed a lot in recent years (see here), so a “Hong Kong 360° - Challenge Cache” was not possible, and neither were many of my other ideas.

This was the first idea that I had that actually was possible. However, since at the time I didn’t fulfil this challenge, I decided to do two challenge caches leading up to this one: “HK Challenge: 8” and “HK Challenge: 88”.

I wonder whether there will ever be enough caches in Hong Kong to create “HK Challenge: 8888”?
