West Virginia Top 10 Challenge GC2WCG9

Postby Spotty Spotty Pony Girl on Thu May 19, 2011 8:58 pm

Just in case some of you have not seen this listing...

thebuddhaman beat wvhunter to the punch and has hidden West Virginia Top 10 Challenge.

So far (5/19/11) only a few cachers have thrown their hats into the ring: wvhunter, ruanwv & Lucky Aquar

Also as of today, the WV Top 10 looks like this:

1. Gadgets of Deckers Creek-GC1M90Y
2. Cave-GC2MD1H
3. Explore WV #16 GC2DYWV
4. The Corps of Discovery- DISABLED - FYI - This is a traveling cache, just so you know.
5. Ack,I've been hacked GC1FG75
6. Chimney Top Cache GCVTH7
7. A house on a hill top GC1H9T3
8. Nightowl's eternal flight cache GC1A4CX
9. Picture Perfect Bridge GCFD4C
10. Pancake Rocks GCHY4F

I've found the ones I put in bold. But I'm not throwing my hat into the ring until the traveling cache has either been snagged by yours truly (get in line...right?) or is out of WV.

I emailed cainrcc about the Discovery cache and it looks like he is going to drop it off in PA soon.
That means it will no longer show up in the WV top 10.
That will make "Haunting Hides The Harpers "You Can't Take it w/U"", GC1WNNE, next in line.
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.

there are 3 tied at that number of Likes, and so according to Rule #5 "What if there is a tie for 10th place? - Pick the one you want."'

you may have your choice of the following for #10 (they all have 16 favorite points)

Haunting Hides The Harpers "You Can't Take it w/U"
by Haunting Hiders | GC1WNNE

Blackwater Falls
by Rev Mike | GC1H7DF

The Light at the End of the Tunnel (AKA Creepy Dollhead on a Deer Skull near a Van with a Toilet Behind It)

Awesome.
That means I have 6 done already. 4 to go.
(But one of those is Cave so that isn't necessarily a good thing.)

With all of those bunched up around the number 10 spot, it will be changing quite often. Like today, for instance. "Light at the End of the Tunnel" and "Elpo Rock" are no longer in that group tied at number 10.

And you will have to go to the Top 10 cache page, delete your log with the list and post a new list with the current date in order to use different caches.

We should get together a group to do Cave. I plan to hit the virtual at the Gorge soon. In addition, I will come north for a visit and hit others on the list I need. It will be easier based at my "vacation home". :lol:

I finished today. The cave is awesome! I'm still uploading pictures. I grabbed the final at 10:03 pm at Pedlar. Someone was actually shooting at the range in the dark :shock: Another crazy trip and I'm glad I'm done.

Congrats Brian! I've been putting off finishing this one. Guess I need to go tackle it sometime. I only need three caches to finish it and they are all easier caches, but all three of the ones I need are in the two panhandles.
