From what I gather from talking to people the objection seems to be to the “placed in 2012” which means they will have to go back to areas currently “cleared”. Basically I think people want to count caches they have already done, so they can do the challenge now this minute. Dave, stick with it Stephen I can see your point too. Perhaps if everyone concentrated on the caches not the arguing then this challenge might become achievable
Personally I am one of those who will never be able to achieve this challenge as I cant get to the remoter parts but I don’t see why that should stop others. I will enjoy getting to the caches I can reach and maybe set a few “Joys of Caching” to help make the challenge achievable.
