Re: Challenge Caches and Virtuals
- I have only done one of my own caches. It is a challenge cache called "Pony Express Trail Challenge" and it consists of several thousand miles of travel to complete. Only 10 traditional caches are required but at least one in each state the trail went to/thru. I figured if I had to go to that much trouble I should get to claim it. Check it out (GC1PRHM) Successful completers get to do the final AND get their name on the nice plaque that actually hangs in the Pony Express Stables Museum in St Joseph, MO!!! YOU WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY! Only 14 nameplates on it so far so go for it!

They almost never say that you have to actually be there, just give the required information. I have a few local virtuals that I have driven by multiple times, and can solve without revisiting, that I know is copacetic. I'm saving those for days I can't get out to keep a streak going. How about a cache in another country that asks to describe a local fountain, or statue. Or the color of the dress on a painting?
