Geocache Description:

** DO NOT GO TO THE LISTED COORDINATES **
(If you try, you will probably be escorted from the field.)



Welcome to the NH DeLorme Challenge - Leave No Page Unturned Cache


9/13/2012:  The New Hampshire DeLorme Challenge Calculator will now check your finds to see if you qualify for this challenge. If you have found qualifying caches on all 69 insets, it will give you the coordinates for the final cache.



The DeLorme Atlas Gazetteer is published for all 50 states. These maps are a favorite among travelers and outdoorsmen and are available at many locations, including online directly from DeLorme.

The final cache coordinates can be obtained by successfully completing the NH Delorme Challenge GCZTTQ and finding or have hidden a cache in each town/city inset of the Atlas. The NH Atlas has 69 insets (pages 54-80) based on the Sixteenth edition ©2010 book).

If you don't have a copy of the Atlas, you can download the following to help you with your quest:

Based on feedback from and incidents seen with other DeLorme Challenge caches, some guidelines need to be laid out:

Generally accepted rules, guidelines and conditions for logging a cache find apply. These must be bona fide caches listed on Geocaching.com that you have personally (physically) found and logged.

Placement of a cache prior to January 1, 2007 on a DeLorme Atlas inset counts the same as finding a cache in that inset. Hides from January 1, 2007 to present will count only if ALL the current caches in that inset have archived. All caches must meet the geocaching.com guidelines and be published. In particular, the guideline regarding 'vacation caches' must be followed.

Completing any inset will also count towards to the NH DeLorme Challenge GCZTTQ page requirements.

The following cache types count as finds or hides for the NH DeLorme Challenge - Leave No Page Unturned:

Traditional
Multi
Unknown/Mystery
Letterbox Hybrid
Virtual
Webcam
Earthcache

If a New Hampshire DeLorme Atlas inset includes space not located in New Hampshire, only caches in the New Hampshire portion count. The posted coordinates for a cache will determine in which inset and state a given cache falls.

A cache is eligible ONLY if it lies in a full inset block on a DeLorme page. If a cache lies within the space where the street names are listed, the cache still counts as being in that inset. The border (partial or half-space) blocks on each edge of each inset do not count.

For Multi-caches, the inset where the first waypoint is located is used by the calculator as the official listed inset. For Unknown (Puzzle) caches, if the final location is not within the inset of the posted coordinates, it will be excluded from this challenge. (If you know of any specific caches, please let me know and I'll add them to the list of excluded caches.)

While you may have others with you when you find the final cache, only those who have fulfilled ALL criteria for this cache will be allowed to log it as a find. Find logs by other cachers will be deleted.

When in doubt ask - we can discuss it or even seek guidance from others, but the final decision rests with the cache owner.

Remember that this is a game and is supposed to be fun!



To claim this cache:


1. Complete the NH Delorme Challenge GCZTTQ

2. Use the New Hampshire DeLorme Challenge Calculator to check your finds to see if you qualify for this challenge. If you do, it will give you the coordinates for the final cache. Once you find that and sign the log, you can log this challenge as Found!

For those that know their way around GSAK, you can use this macro to check your finds too:

The find cannot be logged until the physical container is found and the logbook inside is signed.
