In 2004, Haicoole created the California DeLorme Challenge cache. This cache is a twist on the original cache placement and idea.
This cache is dedicated to the hardcore cachers throughout Florida. This is for all those people who will go to any lengths for a find and achieve an elusive goal in the quest. The Cache Publishers of Florida are proud to bring the Florida Caching Quest to allow everyone to see areas they may not normally get to see. Who is up to the Challenge?
The image above shows the counties that of Florida. The Northern Counties and the Southern Counties are shown in differing colors for the purpose of this Quest.
You will need a GPS, lots of money for gas, a desire to see things you have never seen before, and a strong sense of adventure.
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, will be to complete 2 individual quests in order to find the final location.
North Florida Challenge Quest
South Florida Challenge Quest
In order to claim this cache, you must collect the code words from each of the two preliminary caches. Those words will allow you to open the password protected document that contains the coordinates and description for the final cache. The find cannot be logged until the physical container is found and the logbook signed.
The general rules for the Quest are listed on the preliminary quest pages referenced above. We presume that you have followed all the rules if you have obtained the complete password.
Many thanks go out to Haicoole for the original idea for this cache, the other cache owners who have taken this idea and modified it for their own states, and Floridacacher for creating this challenge for Florida.
