History

This cache is placed where "Borderline challenge" was before. Borderline was archived to give place to "Biblieteca secreta", but now the library got closed down so the spot was available again.

The challenge is based on the challenge by A J Pombo: "Portugal oldest caches (2001-2003)" that was archived in 2019. Checker is by Target, and my challenge is based on the challenge checker that had as goal to find 20 % of the 67 oldest caches.
