WV Alphanumeric Challenge GC22BJK

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=2f0a4210-5f47-4724-b65e-a801ce44d0c0

So, since I don't have GSAK with me, I've spent an agonizing hour looking through all my caches one by one. Unless I missed one, here is what I lack:

-0
-5
-6
-7
-8
-9
-Z

Anyone know of any cache hiders whose names start with any of those figures?

Ok, so using the "Find a Geocacher" function I've gone through the "0's" and the "Z's" and I cannot find anyone with those characters east of the Mississippi.

-edit- As an experiment I tried entering the number 1 (I have found a cache by 1hotmom so I wanted to see if it returned her in the search). It did not return her in my search so apparently using that feature on geocaching.com is not reliable as a search source for this cache. So now what? Does anyone know of a better way of searching out cachers with the alphanumeric requirements?

-also edit- WVHunter, what if there are multiple names of cachers who've hidden the cache. For example - "CLCombat and Aquacache"? Can you count either one or only the first one?

-also also edit- I can only handle the stress consumption of one challenge at a time. Now I've got the Fizzy and the Alphanumeric to deal with? So help me if you create another one soon I'm gonna explode. :shock:

-the person who authors these edits has just been sacked- How about one "the" wildcard? Allowing us to use one geocacher's name that starts with "the" (i.e., The 8astard).

I checked out my caches and I only lack 0 and 7. The other hard to find names that start with numbers I have found in Mississippi and Nebraska. So you have not found any caches by 89SC?

"3. Caching name is determined by the cachers registered Geocaching.com name on their profile page. This is the page that comes up AFTER you click on the cache owner link on the top of the cache page."

This I gotta see. :reddot:

PS. also also also, I have another "challenge" in mind. I'm just looking for a location and have a few spots in mind.
Anatomy (n): something everyone has, but which looks better on a girl.

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

Yeah, I've found a couple of 89SC caches, missed those - thanks for pointing that out.

Ah, thanks for the rule clarification. I'm too ADHD to actually read through the rules. Throws in a new wrinkle though. On some of them the second name in the "hidden by" list is the one who pops up when clicked upon. Gonna have to QC my list again.

Another challenge? NNOOOOOOooooo (secretly, YES, I love these challenges).

I can't believe wvangler forgot me :sad:

I saw the notification on this cache this morning and knew it had to be wvhunter's doing. I haven't finished the last one yet. Going through my finds, I have the alphabet but I need: 0,1,5,8, and 9.

Looks like I need 0, 1 and 2.

Guess I'll have to see if I can find any users with names that match those. I have some finds hidden by people who's names start with "one" and "two" ... does that count? :lol:

I found a cacher that goes by 007 who has a bunch of caches hidden in the Pinehurst, MD area.

thanks smithdk.

Brian, sorry for the slight. It was a product of going through caches one by one. Although, I think I've only found two of yours...I need to get up that way more.

AQ, 1hotmom has a cache in Chief Logan SP.

I forgot about 1hotmom. That's another # I need.

There's a cacher that goes by "2000Mountaineer" that had some caches in Bridgeport that the City killed. He still has caches in VA.

Does anyone have a 5 or 9?

If I don't get down to get the one by 1hotmom, there are a couple caches by 121mb up in Pittsburgh. I didn't get either of the caches by 2000Mountaineer before they were archived.

Unfortunately, the 5's that I found were in California and the 9 was in Texas ... can't help you there.

I'm going to have fun finding an 8 since everyone else is using my caches for it.
