So what's a Jasmer Challenge?
Find a cache hidden in every month since May 2000, when geocaching started (Jasmer Challenge).
There are actual challenge caches to find in the US after you've completed this but none here. It's just a stat like the D/T grid I guess.

1. Find time to attempt more Multi's
2. Finish off all our current cache projects, both the half-started ones as well as the ones in my head
3. Have fun

1. Enjoy doing all the below :D
2. Hopefully finish Project 366 - 17 dates to fill :)
3. Then clear all the caches in our 10km zone (keeping them there for the necessary dates at this point :D )
4. Continue to tackle the unloved challenge (we were at 3710 days last time I checked so a bit of a way to go!) :shock:
5. Get our Puzzle ratio up to 15% of our finds (currently at 13.63%) =D>

Getting enough "unloved" caches - ie caches that havent been found for at least the previous 6 months to qualify to find/log this cache ...

Cool. Well I have logged the GCA locationless "GA2968 Unloved Caches - 2 Years Unfound" 10 times now, so perhaps I already qualify. I need to check it out.

Wow to both of you!! =D> =D> =D> \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
Living in suburban Melbourne means that most caches don't get anywhere near the 6 months unloved so we have to go searching much further afield now if we want to add onto our total :-)

Edited to add.... Hmmmm we've reached our quota of quotes lol so it didnt let me include MV's comment in my quote ... so the "both of you" included MV!

All of my big ones (2 years+) have been remote bush caches. In some cases I have been 2TF on a cache which has lain unfound for 3 years.

In Canberra there is only a small population of bush cachers and the majority those people had found a lot of them. So it was easy for me to pick them off 1-by-1. I've been pursuing this side-hobby of actively pursuing the "most unloved" cache in the ACT since 2009. The current "most unloved" hasn't been found in 1,500+ days. So if you want to boost your total then pull on your walking boots and come for a trip to Canberra.

Except for the obvious coolness of finding such an unloved cache, from memory for the challenge, they have to be Victorian....
