Because I published mine before the deadline, I've now been awarded another set of 5, to be published by the 15th Dec - this could be tricky and if I want a Bonus cache, it'll have to be right to the wire now GC England have decided to suspend new caches during lockdown :o

Forgot to check to see if there were any AL's about on my holiday in Cornwall till I read a log on a standard cache :o

So decided to try Kit Hill's AL and nearly gave up doing it :o I found the AL had to be done in order but according to the CO of the physical bonus (https://coord.info/GC8MC9P), you could do them in any order, I wasn't given a choice and ended retracing my steps twice, up and down the hill >:(

I checked the physical bonus cache and saw you had to retrace your steps again and go a bit further, by then I had just given up, so didn't do the bonus.

Good to hear they trying to integrate them more onto the main GC site.

I personally donít mind the requirement to use the app... itís just one of many cache types.

The only problem with only available on the app is that you have to have an internet connection on your mobile. Last night was a classic example on a FTF hunt. I found a cache (https://coord.info/GC8ZPN6) near Elmley Castle (south of Evesham) and I like to log the find with a quick FTF FLTF, so others can see its been found but I had no internet on my mobile; I wouldn't call where I was "in the back & beyond". I wonder what areas of the UK will be no go areas for AL's :o

 A GPX download for Labs would solve this issue (hang on they use to have this!) and you log them when you have a connection again.

Still don't like how they are treated differently to other caches and now no GPX file either :(

BUT saying all that, I can see the enjoyment doing them :)

How many do you have to get for Wonders of the World?

There are severn in each: Modern Wonders and Ancient Wonders but you have to complete Modern Wonders first, before you can collect the Ancient Wonders.

I did a local series a few weeks ago and bagged the first set of Wonders of the World without realising. Then went to London on the 1st Sep, with a specific list of old caches to find and would have bagged the second set but had a DNF on the last cache :(

Did a FTF run yesterday and got the last one, so have completed Wonders of the World without trying. Still don't understand what the point is, as I didn't try to collect the sets, it just happened  ???

Completed these souvenirs with just a bit of normal caching this month, not much of a challenge :(

I keep checking for missing FTF's on my calendar dates and see lots of new caches but they aren't being published on the correct dates or a bit far away  ;) :D
