When Is A 5* Not 5*. When It Is In Saudi


Recommended Posts

I was intrigued by a cache setter wondering why we didn't grade our off-road caches 5*. It is true that under the Clayjar system they would be however in the absence of upto date mhfares statistical analysis I would say that the majority of our caches are off-road. We do need to differentiate between the degrees of difficulty especially to guide those that wish to avoid geoatheleticing. Anyway we have a much high percentage of 4WD owners than you might expect to find elsewhere and I am only aware of one active local member that uses a saloon vehicle. To state again the defacto local gradings: 1* for blacktop, 2* for track passable to saloon vehicles, 3* for easy 4WD driving, 4* for challenging 4WD driving and 5* when convoys and full recovery gear is required. The difficulty for finding a cache is the norm that you would normally expect elsewhere.
