Found it colincactus found Challenge Cache - BRONZE SILVER GOLD

Monday, February 18, 2013South East England, United Kingdom

Its half term so I'd booked a day off work to do some caching with my son Bobcat. We had some different options on where to go, but we decided to travel to Kent to pick up some challenges and puzzles.

This challenge was one of our main targets for the day - I'd read the first few logs a couple of days ago and I was really intrigued about what it would consist of. There was also a personal coincidence that attracted us: its in New Ash Green in Kent and we come from Ash Green in Surrey.

It was nearly 4pm by the time we got here - we'd already done about 20 caches already today. We parked up in the residential streets a little way away and walked to the cache. The cache was an easy find and we took it back to the car. It took about ten minutes to solve. Great fun - the first time we've seen one of these.

Swapped TBs (we left an Olympic Team GB one) and swapped one of the little Eiffel Towers for a poker chip.

Then back to return the cache. We had to be a bit careful doing this as there appeared to be somebody lurking in the woods about 20m away when we took the cache and then when we returned it he still seemed to be there (he didn't see what we were doing as he was facing away and we were shielded by the tree). Very odd.

Anyway I qualify for this challenge by dint of doing the 11 in 11 at the Geolympix and the 47 challenges I've completed before this. Rather than just saying that though I've made a list here showing how I qualify. I've listed the first cache I found of each of the icon types and my first 10 challenges.

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
