I think it was in 2010 that I first heard of the Jasmer challenge and started filling in some of the easier holes in my grid. In 2011 I took it a bit more seriously and I got down to eight squares outstanding, that being the best that could be done within the United Kingdom. No progress in 2012, so come 2013 I decided I really must get on with it. After much preparation I, and my best mate WhiteFriar, were on our way to the cradle of GeoCaching for some of the oldest caches in the world (and a few others).
A glorious day, warm and sunny with not a hint of rain. Possibly a little on the hot side but nothing we could not cope with. This is the day we got to plug some major holes in the Jasmer grid and visit some Geocaching history.
With GC12 under our belts it was a short drive, on a still excellent road, to a substantial and fairly new parking area. From here the way to go is far from obvious but we eventually made our way to around N45 18.046 W122 03.910 where we joined the track that would take us all the way to the top.
Second cache of three as we continued to ascend. See my web page http://www.15ddv.me.uk/geo/chal/usa_challenges.html#01 for details of my qualifying caches.
