Title: The Somerset Well Rounded Cacher (GC22QHC)
Post by: gaz_zippy on January 30, 2015, 11:48:31 am
I have written a GSAK macro so you can check your qualification for The Somerset Well Rounded Cacher (GC22QHC). As @walktall successfully used this I have now decided to release it into the public domain, it can be downloaded using the link below:

The Somerset Well Rounded Cacher (GC22QHC) (http://gsak.net/board/index.php?showtopic=29058)

Then you can install it into your GSAK in the normal way.

Any questions or comments please post them on the GSAK forum topic (the link above) so I can keep any issues/fixes all in one place.

Thank you   ;D

I don't know if I'll ever complete the challenge.

I mean, it will be completed when I fill in what's left of my grid, though I won't be able to claim the cache  ;)

Having said that, I don't know if it'd be a good idea to register just in case before I cover these more obscure D/T types  ???

@Griff Grof - you have to register and the sooner the better, as your Challenge D/T grid starts with nothing on it, at point of registering. You CAN NOT use previous finds that were found before the date you registered.

I've registered  :o

Luckily, if all goes to plan, I'll be starting with some more unique D/T combos since it'll be my focus through the summer  :)

As I said in my log: it's so annoying since I saw this cache way back in 2010 when I was new to caching, but didn't register.

Glad to see you have registered your intent  ;D I enjoyed the challenge, just the last challenge now, being able to get to the cache ::)

Have you seen where the cache is hidden by the way, it's not a simple hide :)

@walktall, yes, I have - I see that before attempting to find it, you first need to find the equiptment needed  :o

It'll probably take me a few years to complete though  ;)

A great macro @gaz_zippy! It easily confirms what I thought, which is that I am still only just half way to completing this though I started it in June 2011 :-[

Registered my intent. Once my exams are over in May, I may (or may not) have a good crack at completing the challenge.

Ropes and torches are needed to find the actual cache when you are finished :)

I know some here would see that as a further incentive to complete the challenge  ::)

For this reason, and with the macro @gaz_zippy has made to make it easy to see our progress, my interest in the challenge has been re-sparked. I hadn't actually looked what was needed for the final before now, completing the challenge has seemed so far away.

Same, I am trying to find as many caches as I can over the next month to get nearer to 2,000. Then, after exams (as I will have to restrict how many I can find) I will focus on a few special D/T caches, hopefully the On Tour event will help with that  :)

Hopefully I can complete the northern GCW ring tomorrow, it's meant to be sunny but there's also heavy snow forecasted overnight for the area (but they keep changing their minds  ::) )

Well done @walktall  :)

Any idea as to when you'll find it?
