Geocache Description:

The Illinois All County Challenge



The cache is not at the posted coordinates. You must follow the rules & requirements below in order to receive the correct final coordinates and log it! Please read the entire cache page.


The Requirements:

In order to qualify to log this challenge cache you must find or have found a cache in each of the 102 Illinois counties.

Additional rules:

1: All finds must be listed on this website. Caches listed on other websites are not allowed.

2: Generally accepted rules, guidelines and conditions for logging a cache find apply. You must physically visit, locate, sign the log and log your find online for all the caches you claim for this challenge. You also need to meet all other requirements listed on the cache page, if there are any.

3: You can't claim finds on caches you own unless you found them prior to adopting them.

4: This cache can't count towards the requirements.

5: Cache types you can use for this challenge: Traditional- , Multi- , Unknown- , Letterbox Hybrid- , WhereIGo- or APE-

6: For the purposes of this challenge the posted coordinates of all caches will determine which county they can be claimed for. Pro tip: don't use caches too close to county borders- it could be in the wrong county and/or lead to delays in confirmation.

7: There will be two categories for this challenge: Trailblazer and Heritage. Those accepting the Trailblazer Challenge will only count caches that are found on or after their challenge acceptance date. Those accepting the Heritage Challenge will count caches found before or after accepting the challenge. If you accept the challenge, post a NOTE to this cache listing indicating your acceptance and whether you are accepting the Heritage or the Trailblazer challenge.

If you have any questions or are in doubt about something, please feel free to ask me.

Verification:

To verify your finds you can do one of two things:

1- make a public bookmark list of them so that I will be able to run a pocket query from it.
or
2- send me a GPX file of them.

In either case, make sure to include this challenge.
There is no need to specify the county, though if you want to, feel free to do so.
After I have verified that you have a find in each of the 102 counties (and the find dates if you are completing the Trailblazer Challenge), I will send you the final coordinates.

Logging:

To log the find online you must, of course, go to the coordinates and sign the log. No pre-logging allowed- only signatures entered in the logbook after completion of the challenge will count as an official find.

Please follow the above regulations to keep things fun, and fair, for everyone. Failure to follow them will result in your log being deleted.

The Cache:

You are looking for an ammo can a plastic screw topped container that has been placed with permission of the Peoria Park District.
