250 Free Coins

Recommended Posts

A couple of questions:

 

Do CITO events count as event caches for your purposes?  They are listed as a separate type (with separate icon) on geocaching.com.  I have seen this question alsek already but have not seen a response.

 

In regard to the 3 digit match category...  Many puzzle caches use coords like this for the false location when posting the cache.  Do these qualify for 3 digit finds?

 

We're playing...

 

-S.

 

Arrrrgh.....thanks fer ye question...tis a bit easier to ask ye questions, then to be walkin de plank :signalviolin:

 

The CITO events are ok to claim as a requirement as long it's a posted CITO event at geocaching.com and more than just you attended the event...it really must be a gathering of cachers to make it an event eh?

 

RE the 3 digit cache requirement: cannot be false location coodinates. It must be an actual cache location with the triple digits in either the latitude or longitude.

Looks like this one will be my most costly coin yet..going to be doing some traveling to find these requirements.

Me too. I've cleared out half of Georgia in cache finds and that takes away about 6 assignments. There are a few that would qualify for those, but I won't be doing those caches... the terrain is "5" and requires special equipment. I'm hoping thanksgiving in SC will help with a few.

From reading the posts I assume that the log entry has to be made first on geocaching.com and then at coin quest right? (Geocaching.com seems to be having a lot of problems tonight. Will put "for coin quest requirement" in log entry for future caches.

 

Also if a virtual was placed in 2003 it would qualify for either the virtual category #8 or the cache placed in 2003 #12, right?

Well I joined up and will try it out. I think the logging of a virtual might be one of the hardest for me... my nearest unlogged virtual is 41.8 miles.

Yep, us too. We drove 60 miles one way yesterday hoping to score a FTF. Happily, we were successful. :P

 

What I didn't realize until after I logged our first qualifying cache Sat night was that the limit between logging was 24 hours as opposed to every day. (I know, it is documented, but I was so keyed up I logged before reading.) So our first log was 10:11 pm local time. That's fine on the weekends, but during the work week we get up very early and are usually in bed before 10. Mr. Car54 suggested just skipping a day of logging and start the next day logging at a more reasonable time. What? Skip a day? Let someone else get ahead of me? Unthinkable!! Guess I'll be doing a bit more yawning at work the next couple of weeks. :D

 

Thanks for the cool game!

While out caching yesterday, a small group of us hid a cache. Only one of the cachers gets to be the owner. Can I still claim this as a hide, even though I am not the official owner?

Some of these are going to be tough... Why did I have to do that Cemetary Cache on the night before halloween?.... Now the only other Cemetary cache in the area is a 16 part multi.....at least none of the waypoints is likely to be missing....

I'm good on all the caches except the cache by a cave or mine tunnel! Dern it Iron Horse would of worked great in the instance.

Yeah... the Cave or Mine Tunnel is going to be tough too.... We've already done the ones I'm aware of , that aren't a significant hike.... For some reason there are very few caves in the Los Angeles area....

Well, I found a cache near a tunnel last wednesday in SC and have done one of the few doable cave caches that's in GA in 2004, sigh. I plan on doing some caching in AL, SC and TN to meet all the requirements. So as PP suggested earlier, this will be an expensive geocoin by the time it's all said and done, lol.

Well... After some searching... I just found a cave cache that I haven't done...and It's only 100 miles away...

Only the official owner of the cache can claim the cache for the #13 requirement!

So far the hardest one for me is the FTF and Event requirements. I've been geocaching for 5 months and have yet to log a FTF. I doubt one is going to jump into my lap in the next couple of weeks. We have an event scheduled in Alabama next weekend but its 150 miles from my house so I wasn't planning on going. I might have to though.

 

How do I do a search for Virtuals and is there a way to do a search for lat/long coords ending in the same number?

Well we are definately in on this one. The hardest for us will probably be the cemetery one, since they have all been archived in SC.

Sounds like you need a road trip to Indiana. :D We have a whole series of cemetery caches, many of them co-owned by a dog (another Coin Quest category). Search by keyword "Indiana Spirit Quest" and check out some of the cache pages. The folks who hide these take great pride in researching the history of the cemeteries, with a special emphasis on veterans.

<snip> is there a way to do a search for lat/long coords ending in the same number?

I would be interested in knowing if there is a shortcut for this too. I did it the hard way - by going through all the pages of nearby caches I haven't found and looking at each one seperately until I found one. But before I did, I found at least a half dozen with coords like .998 or .667 - very frustrating I must say!

 

But I found one and it's only about 20 miles away. :D

I would suggest requesting a pocket query, and then using GSAK or some other similar tool to just scroll down the list that is sorted by distance from your house until you find one. Shouldn't take more than a few minutes to find one that way.

I just used GSAK to find coordinates where the last 3 digits match and it's only 13 miles away. Off to get it now :D

question about the great view requirement

 

Can we use earthcaches forthat that require you to post a picture if we maybe write coin quest and our name and include it in the picture? or does that requirement need to be with a physical cache?

Actually that wouldn´t be too much of a problem. Just did one yesterday.

It´s a T5. Not because it´s an island but because the cache box is actually located in the top of a hard-to-climb tree about 7m above the ground. I loved that cache.

I've only ever cached paperless with a PDA. I don't know what it means to print pages unless an image file is required to solve a puzzle/find the cache :rolleyes:

What is a virtual cache? And how do I do a search for them? Thanks!

Stephanie you have already done one, you did Triangle Park Cache GC6165.

Go to that cache page and down on the left hand side of the page you'll see in bold black it says Find... click on nearby caches of this type, click on that and your good to go.

This game is so much fun. Someone needs to do more of something like this. Maybe instead of trying to buy a coin like the Georgia which sold out in 2 minutes, the first 100 people to complete tasks gets a coin (to pay for of course).

On the TB requirement, does it have to be picked up from a cache I haven't visited, or just dropped in a cache I haven't visited?

I didn't add on some of my posts on the 12th or 13th that this was a coin quest requirement cache. If I log them into the contest (one day at a time of course :ph34r: ) would they be disqualified? If I edit the entries to add coin quest would that be ok or would that disqualify those entries? Thanks Logs from now on will say that as I didn't see it in the rules originally.........

phoenixrose must of found a glitch in the system as she has 6 caches logged!

 

Hmm...maybe she knows somebody on the inside? Nah just kidding I have a feeling the Cach-U-Nut aren't that type of folks.

 

How ever that happen I'm feel sure it will get fixed.

 

The nice folks down in my area at the Houston Geocaching Society have been a huge help to me in finding the caches I need.

 

Going out today a bag a few more.
