Given the obviousness of the answer you will kick yourself when you work it out.

Does the TARDIS qualify as non animal flight for archery?

Is it ok to use your 'closest to home' for one of the other requirements, and then get the 'next closest to home' for the closest to home (as it now becomes that)

Waist deep in water in Canberra in June/July - the spheroids on the simians made from zinc and copper are doomed.

Is it okay to do decathlon and heptathlon on consecutive days? So if I got 9 on day one and 8 on day 2 (or vice versa) I could claim both?

Yeah, call me a wuss but I'm probably going to give that requirement a miss!

Okay think I missed something in the points scoring?

Where/ what do the difficulty/terrain score as?

Ive sort of got the cache type vs size of cache. But do the difficulty/terrain just go as they are
so a 2* is 2 points? :-k

Yes.
Can one break a powertrail gathered on the same day into decathlon and heptathlon pieces?

It took a few attempts but I finally tracked it down (marks date in geocaching diary) :-\ Oops... I missed a vital bit of information - I think I've got it right this time...... [-o<

You get the higher of:

type * container
OR
difficulty * terrain

So you enter all 4 sets of information and the site will calculate the highest.

So you choose the type and container.
Difficulty and terrain are entered as per the cache description from 1 through to 5 (with 0.5 increments).
