Hmm. One that you need is not very far from you.

Do tell! I need those two as well. Closest I can find for them is Virginia (one near Pendleton County and the other just north of Lewisburg, WV).

Thanks! Your series is on my short list. Somehow I missed the notification on it or I would have been out there with Big Cat and CTeam. I got emails from both of them about how I'd love it. I was trying to finish the Fizzy first. I'm working off my old list and never noticed the rating on yours. I was a ready to head back to PA for GCXARG. I'll be changing my plans now. I've been looking forward that series :grin:

From the Fizzy Challenge rules:

2. All finds (except the Event and CITO Events) must be on caches that were published BEFORE the published date of this cache. 10/03/2009

  • I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

  • I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make when they go flying by.

Oops! I forgot about that. That rules out the 9 I was looking at too.

Well, I'm trying to get an update...but my finds query seems to be lost in cyberspace somewhere...it says it's processed, but still nothing in my email....

It has been a long road but I've seen a lot of interesting places. I think I'll lay off the challenges for awhile though Saturday I did pick up another State Park I hadn't been to before. I hear that challenge is coming.

Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code.

Congrats 89SC!!! I did the DeLorme Challenge in about 3 months...the Fizzy is by far more difficult 10 times over...unless you live in a densely populated area. I could do the WV DeLorme Challenge 6 times in the amount of driving it is taking me to do the Fizzy. I got another square yesterday for my 1300th Milestone (13 Mile Creek cache - a 2/5). I hope to start chipping away at the 9 combos I have left as soon as I get my house built.

On a note about the state parks, I finished the VIPP card a few weeks back and got my free jacket this last week. It is pretty nice. I think the second card looks to be a ton easier to complete than the first card.
