I have heard of this specific challenge, but don't know where they are.


Ditto for us!

This will help.... upload your myfinds.zip and it will do the rest.

Placed Date Calendar Calculator

Note: This particular calculator excludes "events" so if the 366 cache challenge allows events this will short change you.

I know I don't have the longest streak

HTML_PlacedDate.gsk

I'm also using this macro - PlacedDatesNotFound.gsk - to show me which finds in my GSAK database that I haven't found yet would qualify me for the cache.

Thanks for the info guys. I had earlier used another GSAK macro, couldn't find the other one that is much better. Have all 366 dates done already, but I hesitate to put another challenge out there because only a dozen or less local people ever do those. My Swirly Challenge has only attracted 6 people, and its not difficult.

If somebody else wanted to do it, I'd log it. :D :D :D

Just checked out that GC2NYRM. A pill bottle on a guard rail.

Shouldn't the cache difficulty be somewhat commensurate with the challenge difficulty? It doesn't have to be something that would require a 12 mile canoe trip, or rappelling down a cliff, but at least get me out in the woods to find a good container. Just sayin.....

I suppose the hard part was getting there in the first place. Doing all of the work and then not finding the final would be a bummer.

Looks like I have all 366, but the existing caches are a little far for now...

I could probably be persuaded to hide the challenge. Should I do it?

So far, I think I'm the only one here who has NOT qualified for it. I'm not certain how many other cachers would try to qualify. I suppose if you exclude event caches it would make it slightly more difficult but even then I don't know how many people would go for it (besides me.... I'm always in for another challenge). :D

Oh... Pax says he's in as well. :lol:

Now we see why we got a certain email inquiry earlier today.

Found one! On the way to a storm chasing conference. Only 10 miles off my route!
