Found it colincactus found England World Cup Winners Challenge

Sunday, June 21, 2015Southern England, United Kingdom

I only had 7 of the required 11 caches for this challenge when it was published (I always prefer it when I'm not pre-qualified for a challenge anyway). At the time the geocaching.com search would only give you caches that started with a given word so it was quite tricky to find the qualifying caches. I was planning on just copying what other people had found, but then the new search came in and it was a lot easier.

I decided to start working towards the challenge after noticing that the "Byrne" I wanted to use had gone missing. I found my "Hunter" at the start of April, and then picked up "Charlton" and "Wilson" on two weekend trips to Sussex with my wife. So that took me to 10.

Just one more to go but Byrne was still missing and picking up DNFs at a fair rate. So instead of waiting for it to be replaced I found my "Stiles" while on a trip visiting my daughter at Bristol Uni.

Here are my qualifying caches:

I went to pick it up with my son Bobcat this evening. The GPSr wasn't helping us much but Bobcat found it. Fave point awarded for the challenge.

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.
