Another one not to care about. :mrgreen:

Over here in Ireland we have "Challenge" Caches... I like them, and am well on my way on most of them...

Some Ideas perhaps?
The Irish Top 10 Challenge --> By State Doable?
The Irish County Challenge --> By State?
The North-West Challenge --> Ummm... this would be tough back home haha
The Fizzy Challenge

another idea would be the original thread topic, the Jasmer.

Love or Hate?! I was going to hold the ideas and use them as my own... but would rather find them instead if some one gets inspired :D

Of course we have one of our own - The Victoria Country Road Atlas Challenge.

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=7413dfc4-b78d-4eb8-9b8c-2f895f82377c

I have been so close for so long - only one more to do.

Then there are those which exist as GCA Locationless...

Such as the Challenging A Busy Day (8 for 1) and the darn near impossible (still waiting an FTF! :D) A Really Busy Day (12 For 1) :twisted:

I'll tell you difficult months to find in Sydney - June and December 2005. Have got 2006 to date and all of 2004. Also only November 2003 missing but these 2005 caches don't seem to come up. I haven't gone out of my way to find them but you'd think you'd eventually get these. I did a search and there isn't one within cooee of me so I'll have to target some and go for a road trip.
There's only two in 'Sydney' for June 2005 and one for December 2005.
(okay there's one at Richmond).

With a recent trip to Adelaide I picked up a few old virtuals (thanks Freddo!) and have the challenge at 132 out of 147 months.

Need:
2000 June July August September December
2001 February April May July August September December
2002 January September
2005 December

Must endeavour to knock off that December 2005 one - the only one in Sydney is in the Fish Markets.

When in NZ soon I'll have to detour for this one from June 2000: http://coord.info/GC4B

There's a few more virtuals around Sydney too from the early days.
The tricky ones are going to be those other (year) 2000 caches that are overseas.

All this talk has got me curious. Stopped running mygeocachingprofile.com things after gc.com bought them but seems they won't integrate Jasmer so I have just scheduled a myfinds PQ now. I have found many virtuals so I don't think I'll have too many left. I've been to the fish markets cache twice but once couldn't find it and got muggled out the second.

Are you sure about Q Yurt? I'm pretty sure you got at least one of my Leapfrogs - or is it another one that doesn't count GCA caches?...

Yes it's GC only dagnabbit!

Must find one of yours when I next get to Vic.

Zal, you've got an easy one to get Nov 2000 in Sydney:
http://coord.info/GC1F11

July-August-Sept 2000 are very tricky with only about 3 Sept 2000 caches left I think, all in the backblocks of the USA.

I came across some more stats, this time via GSAK BadgeGen. On top of caches by month hidden (or which I'm missed several early ones that I may never be able to get), there's date hidden, and suprisingly I'm doing better at that without even trying that my daily finds - I have less than a month to fill in! :-) Is there a challenge/challenge cache for finding 366 caches hidden on every day of the year?

:-$

I was also amazed by that stat. I have only 17 empty days, again with out trying.

I've not seen a challenge for it.

I put a BadgeGen request on the forum - no response as yet, the forum doesn't seem particularly well set out... If there isn't a challenge/challenge cache for it yet, there soon will be (I bagsed it! :mrgreen: )

EDIT - found quite a few challenge caches for 366 day placed calendar in USA but nothing in Australia that I could see (only did a basic search)
