The Well Rounded Cacher
CachingGames.com has details of a new game called the Well Rounded Cacher. The idea is simple enough: find one cache of each difficulty/terrain combination. Difficulty and terrain are measured 1, 1.5, 2 etc through to 5. That is nine levels each, 9 x 9 = 81 caches to find! That includes the hard 4/4 to 5/5 caches.
Considering I am just short of 200 caches since I started in 2005 it looks like an impossible challenge.
As this is a new game, the rules say you can only claim caches found within the competition period. This means I will have to find one of each combination again.
Looking at the GCA stats for caches hidden by difficulty/terrain, one issue becomes obvious straight away: there are a few missing combinations. Checking these out further it looks like they are available in ACT or VIC but will take some organisation and travel.
CachingGames have dealt with this issue by having three challenge levels: 3/3 (25 caches), 4/4 (49 caches) and 5/5 (81 caches) difficulty/terrain combinations.
I could possibly do all 3/3 combinations which is 25 caches, with many of them in my area.
I will keep planning and working out options for each cache combination and see how I go. Regardless of how many I actually find, it will be a good challenge.
