From what I’ve read in the last day or so on FB’s Cacher’s group, there’s a lot of confusion, frustration, and more than a tinge of dismay about this new category.  Think I’m with Jason and will wait a bit to see where the chips fall.

FYI, based on what I have been reading in the forums about the debacle of the challenges starting yesterday ... this one will soon be archived.


They MUST be location specific. "Take a picture in front of a flag" is too general ... "Take a picture in front of the flag in Tucson located at XXX"  would be acceptable.


Only Groundspeak is supposed to be able to put out general world-wide ones at this point.


Just a heads up to anyone that may be thinking of putting some of these out there ... I for one and waiting until all the kinks to work out before considering it.

We now have Challenge caches to accept, we have issued a challenge in the Tucson area to anyone that wants to find it.  Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Have fun.

Stay safe and healthy,
