3 or 4 x Jasmer

It's unlikely to exist, at least post-moratorium, mainly because there's now a requirement to be 'reasonably attainable', and 3 or 4 jasmers takes a LOT of travel to complete, especially since one month only has 4 active currently, and if one is archived, the challenges get far harder to attain. Also with 4 required to complete one month, and 4 only available for that month, it may also qualify as a "list" of specific geocaches to find. Given the range of 1 to 4 jasmers, "reasonable" is probably balance at the halfway point, so 1 and 2 allowed, but 3 and 4 not.

 

IANAR, just an educated guess :)

You will see a small number (less than a dozen) Double Jasmer Challenge caches, mainly in the USA and mainly pre-moratorium.  There are, to my knowledge, no true active Triple Jasmer Challenge caches.  This will not change.  "Single Jasmer" challenges can still be published as a special exception to the Geocache Hiding Guidelines for Challenge Caches, but no Double, Triple, or Quadruple Jasmer Challenge caches.

No reason you can't have a Jasmer Challenge cache that "promotes" triple or quadruple Jasmer, so long as the actual challenge is just single, and there's no suggestion that anything further than single Jasmer is required for the challenge cache.  That's what I have done with the Jasmer challenge cache that I own.

That's a nice cache page, and it's guidelines-compliant.  Among other things, the Challenge Checker only covers the single Jasmer.  The promotion of the double/triple/quadruple is done correctly.  Other readers should note that they cannot include checkers for those variants within the cache page.  (Only one checker per challenge cache page!)

To my knowledge, this is a complete list of people with at least four Jasmer loops. (As of Oct 6, 2022 when @thebruce0 asked me about this.)

Would have been on this list already if it wasn't for COVID - the trip to Atlanta, and several other southern states, was being planned when it hit the fan....

 

So it's just triple for now.

I signed the Double Jasmer challenge in my area back in 2020. Still working on it, the tough gap is of course August 2000. I plan to remedy that when I move from Virginia to Texas this summer, taking a slight detour to, among other oldies, Geocache 612. (I'll then start to swing south, of course stopping by Mingo and Arikaree on the way.)

 

After that, I imagine I'll get to Potter's Pond eventually. And who knows, perhaps also Match Stash some day...

Good luck

 

You are definitely taking the scenic route.

 

My biggest geocaching regret/miss was driving right by Mingo on a road trip to take the kids to visit the grand parents in Topeka from Oregon. Actually spent the night in nearby Goodland (50 mi) visiting my wife's college friend. I did two caches that morning just did not know what I was missing at the time. Oh well maybe another time remember Kansas IS in fact flatter than a pancake. 

 

I did a mini 3 day road trip to Potter's Pond. That was one of my all time favorites well worth the trip. Beautiful area nice little hike. Far better than corn fields.

I'm the same boat, though I need 2 more July as well.  Those two are on my priority list, most work to get to.

 

 

If anyone's curious about achieving the 5th and 6th Jasmer grids - and why it's no longer possible (unless you already found archived oldies) - my podcast last month had an interview discovering the strategy (love it or hate it) used :)gaming the game

You mean the shortest route from Virginia to Texas doesn't go through Michigan, South Dakota, and western Kansas?! :anibad:

 

Yeah, I know. That's why the other two thirds of team hzoi, and the cat, are flying.

Aw, man. That's unfortunate.

 

I fully intended to hit Mingo and Arikaree when I lived in Oklahoma. I knew we'd be there for two years, so I planned to knock out the Oklahoma county and Delorme challenges first, then make the trip up to Kansas and see what else there was to pick up.

 

...and then we ended up moving six months early, so I got the county and Delorme challenges, but I didn't get back up into Kansas.

 

So, when I started thinking about what I could do during the move, this seemed like the best opportunity to take a big ol' road trip, since the 105 days between my "last day in the Army" and my actual retirement date are the best opportunity I'm going to have to do anything like this for a while.

how did you create this list?

 

I used the API to pull lists of people who had found all four of the (currently-active) August 2000 caches. Then I set up a temporary Project-GC script to run the names through quickly.

What is a Jasper Loop"New term for me.

It isn't "Jasper", it's "Jasmer".

 

The Jasmer Challenge is to find a cache placed in each month since geocaching began. See the blog post The Jasmer Challenge.

 

And "loops" simply refer to completing a challenge multiple times. So if you find 3 caches placed in each month since geocaching began, then that's 3 loops of the Jasmer Challenge.

Hi

 

I have searched but not being able to find any challenge cache where you need to have completed 3 x Jasmer og 4 x Jasmer.

Are there any out there?

 

Regards

Picht

That's a lot of international travel needed for many of us. We don't even have one cache for some months in Australia, and in others we might only have one cache.

I've re-generated the list. Here is a complete list of individuals with four finds in every month up to September 2022 (to give six months of leeway.)

 

The previous list was generated giving much more leeway, so some people who appeared on that list are not on this one.

 

TTO2 went from six to four due to GC83C2 and GC7DE2 having their "hidden date" changed (back?) from August 2000 to August 2002.

Just out of interest ?

 

once you complete the Quadruple Jasmer Challenge

 

What next ? - as i said before i am only 6 year 2000 caches away and long as i keep the current finds up to date 

 

i suppose the next one would be finding the second APE cache

 

so What next after that ?

What ever motivates you personally.

 

I've found my personal motivations shift over time. Streak been there done that. Don't want another t-shirt. Clear out your immediate area. Work on challenges. More countries or counties.

 

Thats the beauty of this game you get to choose.

I just completed an Australian Jasmer GC81G1T. Although people can find the caches in any country, this one has four months not required; the four months where no cache still exists that were published (if at all) in those months, and so I guess is designed to be in the ability of those Australians who never travel overseas. I have driven thousands of kms to complete it to find some old caches; likely up to 20,000kms. Some, such as GCF1, is the only cache for that month and year still existing in Australia. Fortunately that one is not too hard to get to. Some others were harder. They are not 'all walks in the park'. This one took a longer drive GC372, but lovely scenery.

After finding GC372 , I would have qualified immediately a day before, but I found it on 1st March, so then had to find a cache published in March. I did a few days later and logged.

Pleased when I arrived at the last cache needed. Lonely road.

i dont think GC81G1T is a Jasmer challenge really , it more like find old caches each month challenge - its a bit misleading ?

Isn't that what a Jasmer is? Find a cache published in each month since Geocaching started . They are not all old caches. The last cache I found to fulfill this was published this month. If not, please explain how your version differs. 

Most of the more recent months I had already found a cache published that month in, as there are so many, so yes, it does end up as searching for those rare caches that were published in older months. Such as GCF1, where only one exists for that month in Australia.

These are the caches I found for this. (As I stated, four months, where no cache exists for those months in Australia, are excluded, hence I guess why it is called, "Australia Only Jasmer Challenge".) These are all Australians caches. The darker blue are caches that the checker found (foreign caches or meet and greet events), that I found an Australian cache to replace it with.

I am going to try to find foreign caches for June to September 2000 and fill that gap, so I can find international Jasmer challenges. I have to travel overseas to do this. Yes, it is a search for older caches, as the newer ones are found by normal caching (some years ago). After caching for several years, it is the older ones that would be more likely to be missing.

i dont think GC81G1T is a Jasmer challenge really , it more like find old caches each month challenge - its a bit misleading ?

 

Who is being misled? It works the same as any other Jasmer challenge except it excludes those four months in 2000 for which there are no qualifying caches in this part of the world. No one who's done it is claiming anything other than to have completed that particular challenge as laid out on the cache page.

The Jasmer Challenge.

To complete the challenge, you must fill your Jasmer grid by finding caches placed in every month since geocaching began in May 2000

 

GC81G1T - is not a Jasmer challenge as it excludes months

 

 

 

image.png.95b0022d80f660f28be2f023a0268464.png 

Read the cache title, "AUSTRALIA Only Jasmer Challenge" (AUSTRALIA!!!) That is finding a cache for every month that has a cache in Australia. Gees whizz, easy to understand. And a good deal harder to do, because of distances and lack of caches, than in some parts of the world. I drove about 20,000 kms to find the last few caches I needed. 

How can we fill squares in Australia if caches don't exist? I don't understand what it matters to you if there is a cache here with four caches missing, because we don't have any to find for those months. It wouldn't worry me if another country did this, say the UK Jasmer Challenge. Not everyone has  your money or opportunity to travel (which you have hidden...never understand why people do this, but your business), so it's nice they don't have to travel overseas to find the cache to fulfill the local one.

its find a cache in every month excluding four months challenge   - its a fun cache i am sure,

 

but i will stick to finding the official qualifying Jasmer challenge caches

I just completed an Australian Jasmer GC81G1T.

 

Thank you for posting the nice pictures.  I love the concept of the Australian Jasmer, which I'd call a "Jasmer Variant," because I own an analogous challenge cache called the "PennsylJasmer Challenge."  All finds need to be within Pennsylvania, so the first month needed for qualifying is February 2001.  (This is the first month where there are "plenty of qualifying caches" as required by the Guidelines for challenge caches.)

 

Given the size of Pennsylvania relative to the size of Australia (or even NSW), I am sure that Goldenwattle or barefootjeff could knock out my challenge in a long weekend. :P  For my part, I'm off to a good start on GC81G1T, having found Lanes Cove and Queens land, along with caches for 37 other months in an Australia-only Jasmer grid.

 

Other common Jasmer Variants include Vertical Jasmers (find a cache hidden in Month X for each year from 2000 to the present) or Horizontal Jasmers (find a cache hidden in every month for Year X).  These are often called "Mini Jasmers" in the cache title.

And no one said or implied that the Australia Jasmer variant was equivalent to a full, complete Jasmer challenge for every month since May 2000.

It's the maximum to a full Jasmer one can get, in Australia.

And there are plenty of Jasmer variants all over the world, to complete as much as possible within smaller regions like Australia, Pennsylvania, Ontario, Canada, USA, etc...

However, now I have done this, I 'only' need to find four more months (outside of Australia) to qualify for the international Jasmer challenges. Once I have those caches I can treat Jasmer caches (as long as caches from any part of the world are acceptable) as just ordinary caches. They won't be the challenge this  first one was.

You might be further with that cache than you think, as that cache, with the four missing months, although having been designed to allow for stay at home geocachers to qualify, it does accept foreign caches too. I would have preferred if it were only Australian caches to make the challenge more difficult, but it's not designed that way. Maybe that might be to allow foreign visitors to also qualify. I wanted to find an Australian cache for all the months that's possible for, and I did manage that. I think that was was more difficult than those who can travel the world and find them anywhere. I removed my foreign found caches from my list to only include Australian. The darker blue text shows where I have done this in the supplied list above. I also removed meet and greets and replaced them with a cache.

I've re-generated the list. Here is a complete list of individuals with four finds in every month up to September 2022 (to give six months of leeway.)

 

The previous list was generated giving much more leeway, so some people who appeared on that list are not on this one.

 

TTO2 went from six to four due to GC83C2 and GC7DE2 having their "hidden date" changed (back?) from August 2000 to August 2002.

Unfortunately, that information is not provided by the API, so doing it manually is the only option.

thats a shame as would be interested to see if they are the only person in the country they are based in -  would be a good stat to quote i think

Would it be possible to complete a 3 or 4 Jasmer challenge without travelling to the USA? I doubt it. We can't even complete one full Jasmer in Australia.

 

August 2000: only four caches are available; three are in the U.S. and one is in Sweden.

So I was correct. This can't be completed anywhere but in the USA.

 

Can a full Jasmer be completed in Europe? Or is the USA the only place.

Quick check shows active caches placed before 1/1/2001.

 

Regardless of location significant travel will be required, my longest geocaching road trip 3 days and 1800 miles to get Potter's Pond. A true gem of a cache. Should have added another day and camped there.

This requires a month by month search. Quicker to ask others who might know.

Yes. I drove about 20,000 kms to get old caches here in Australia, over several trips. Some required walks too. Several were found on a 17,000km road trip. I now have found all the old Australian 2000 caches, except one 

Australia's Used-to-be-Highest GCF7

T5 S 36° 23.277 E 148° 19.050, which likely would be too difficult for me to get to.

Only 15 cachers have done all 7.

 

But, you're one of 40 who've done 6 or more.
