Has any one informed HQ that all cachers can currently create Earthcaches, it doesn't need to be a special day ::)

Or are they looking to limit them or even Grandfather them :o :o

I wonder with the changing World we live in and more security concerns, that non-physical caching is the way that GC is heading.

I was speaking to a reviewer at a normal Event and he was asking for cachers to make valid comments known to GC if an Adventure Lab is poor, as they want to set a good base for these and to weed out the poor ones.

Lab caches have been going for some time now but still not fully included in your stats :(
Now we have Adventure Labs, still in a testing phase but how long will this last or after the failure of the Challenge caches (which were wiped off the whole GC system), are they being very cautious.

Run out of time with me going away :(

I did get an email reminder from GC HQ so I replied, saying the timing was very bad for me with a busy July and me going to two Mega's. Had nothing back from them yet.

General Caching / Mystery at the Museum

Any one having a go at this latest souvenir hunt?

A slight twist with these, you need to complete each level, before you can see what caches have the next set of 'clues'.

Levels:
Find the detective to get briefed on the case - 1x cache to find
Investigate the scene - 6x caches to find
Find the stolen gems - 15x caches to find
Find the stolen jewels (gems) to learn how to access the vault



You can use the search option which now has the Mystery at the Museum filters, so you can find caches that have been tagged.

Not sure if I'm going to be able to get any out, not helped by poor mobile coverage near home :(

Had to re-think again, as another idea I had I can't use with no mobile signal :(

I had an idea for a set of Labs but one location has no mobile signal and I think, it has the most interesting thing to find out of the set, will have to re-think :(

Good points and some I've voiced myself.

The point of being reviewed - when creating Adventure Labs (AL), you have to create a virtual Traditional cache (not to be published), so they can be reviewed before you create the actual AL cache. So there is some review.

Also, I'm unsure how much you can, if at all, you can tweak a AL cache once it has been found, so if there is an issue that needs a tweak, can it be done?


The other thing that separates them also, is they can only be done 'live' as there is now no GPX download :( There are going to be areas were they just can't be placed or if you are on the wrong network, you can't find them :o :(

Would have much preferred a Virtual, as I already had an idea for it :)

It's been handy to see what others have done and pit falls they've had. I want to make this a very local series if mobile signal allows.

Just got an email from GC HQ and I've been awarded an Adventure Lab  ::) ;D

I've got till the 20th August to place up to five locations and make them Public. With the Megas in August, this means I need to get it done by the end of July, as I'm away after that, not back till 23rd Aug.

Cotswold caching did that for a while but with us spread out and having to find a different pub, it fizzled out.

I know some groups use it as an opportunity to sort out some difficult puzzle caches or plan caching days but the main aim is just have a chat, with no pressure on the event organiser.
