This series has taken cachers in a direction I never imagined therefore I'm shutting it down. I apologize to all the other puzzle owners for the chaos this series has created for you. Apparently people will do anything for a smiley even on just one or two caches even it means cheating on 50 or 100 other caches to meet the requirements for another cache.
The intention was for this series to encourage ethical cachers who really enjoyed puzzles to be able to celebrate their accomplishments. I know a few have embraced it for what it was supposed to be, and I'm truly greatful for your gracious logs and trips down memory lanes.
