Saw there were five new challenges when I fired up the computer after breakfast. A short amount of work confirmed my initial intuition that I qualified for four of them. What to do about it? Well, there were jobs that just had to be done and an event to attend (well it wouldn't do for the host not to turn up!). So it was after lunch that saw myself and my good mate WhiteFriar head off for these.
First up. Stopped in the lay-by and crossed the road with care. A reasonably swift find but the (minor) disturbance of the previous finder was clear and we were beaten on this one.
Back home I still had Tuesday's logging to do before starting the mammoth task of creating a list of all my qualifying caches. It was now that some of the fine print registered, particularly the requirement that any cache could only be used once. However, with a little juggling, any doubts that had crept in were eventually dispelled - I still qualified for the four challenges, albeit with a few fewer counties for some.
Taking heed of the CO's note I have favoured challenges for my qualifying caches. !9 counties in all of which 12 or 13 (depending on whether you consider LQ:Final counts) are challenge caches. See my web page http://www.15ddv.me.uk/geo/chal/collecting_counties_challenges.html#HC01 for details.
