Wish they had set a more recent date for the date placed on some of the caches...  :o

I've had to rearrange me PQ's and change dates for filters in GSAK.
Only updated less than 2 weeks ago, due to a lot of caches being archived from a couple of the early PQ's.
I have a Geocaching problem...
Work gets in the way!

And also wish that they included a list of all the caches you'll pass on the route - it's going to be a nightmare putting them all on, distincting them from others as they all have different GC codes and owners, and, as you said Bear and Ragged, dates - why couldn't they have made a joint account and submitted all of them under that?

Also, which one is the bonus cache? No links or GC code to it at all! One last rant... some listings have far more information than others, #1 and #111 have hardly anything, while some of the different owners have included much more information.

Hopefully all will be made worth while with what looks like a good series  ;D

As you have realised, the series was a joint venture, hence why there are differences between cache listing and some of the caches are old caches, renamed to make the series up as they were already in a position for the series.  :P  It took a while to get all the caches in place, so place dates reflect this - I can't see why this is a problem.

Wonder who's going to get the FTF on the Wherigo  ??? ::)

I do hope the series is a good walk and worth doing.

It's not really a problem  ::) Just personal preference  :D

I agree with your final point, seems good looking at it, don't want to do 26 miles for an average series, and yes, I did see the Wherigo... quite some bragging rights for whoever gets that one!

This series is struggling already with missing caches and dodgy co-ords. :-\

Ohh - better wait a bit before tackling it then  :-\

It is a shame - it's only been live for a couple of weeks....

Looking at where the series goes and reading the logs on the unfound caches I think I have just added 100+ caches to my ignore list. (maybe do it when all the problems are sorted.)

It is a shame as it could have been something special.

Looking at it, I don't see too much wrong with it - it is the Cheltenham Circular, and Cheltenham is surrounded by hills, so the walk doesn't look too bad - they have all been found anyway excluding one and the bonus.

Notice who got FTF on the Wherigo - without "Going the distance" - how on earth did you do that JJ - was it by accident?  :D

One to watch for now I think....

Shame to hear the bad reports on the series, lets hope they are just teething problems and it is all smoothed out  ::)
