This challenge requires you to create a chain of found caches with a maximum separation of 100 mile. The two endpoints of the chain must be at least 1000 miles apart. The checker will draw a map of your longest chain. When you post your "Found it" log, please include a copy of your map for others to see. Note that the three Chain Challenges are likely to produce very different results as the separation distance changes.
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 all of 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.
Please use the above link to verify that you have fulfilled the challenge.
Because the checker above is very compute intensive, for a few cachers it does not complete its task within a set amount of time and aborts. If this happens to you, please use this alternate checker which omits calculating the routing on the map
Here are RetiredGuy's qualifying stats and map:
The distance between the farthest linked caches from GC25 to GC64AFK is 1151.0 mile long.
Since these maps are quite interesting, I am going to also post the longest one I know of. The longest long chain that I know of belongs to FLtravelers. The distance between the farthest linked caches from GC1V4D6 to GCGEYM is 3180.0 mile long.
You may sign the log before completing the challenge. If you do this, please use a "Write note" log to record your find and then a "Found it" log once you have completed the challenge.
