Current GOAL

You found me!! Now you can help me out. I am a contestant in the Great TB Race of 2009. In this race, I can earn points for various tasks that I complete. The more points I have, the closer I am to winning. The simplest way is to help move me to another cache, but I have more tasks that are worth more points. My mission is to win. Read on to find out how you can help.

Please be aware that there is a no dipping rule in place. I only gain points for the final drop. Any dips made in between will be invalidated. There is one exception, but you'll need to check out the rules in the link below to figure that out.

Official Race Correction:

Visit to GC1TETG was for a FTF. Cache too small for TB. Points for FTF invalidated due to lack of photo as per rules. Subtract 35.4 miles, 1 cache, 1 FTF.

Official mileage is 1931.5
