The day finally arrived. A group of geocachers who had solved the puzzle portion met up at 8AM on the morning of June 3 to find the physical 5/5 (hardest difficulty/terrain rating) cache in our area. I wanted it to be my 100th find.
So, I’ve begun an effort to get 17% of my finds to be puzzle caches in order to claim ache GC1NBVB, titled “17”. I’m at 3.7% now, so clearly I have some work to do. The good news is that I’ve only found 81 caches total so far, so it’s not insurmountable like it would be if I was at 3% and had found 1000 caches already.
I’ve begun work on my first ever 5/5 cache – the most difficult level of cache. It’s probably the closest one to me at that level. It starts with a multi-level puzzle and then leads you on a course up the Nashua River (or so I’ve read) to find at least 5 sites along the way.
