OK , not just any challenge cache... those seems to be very easy to find.

I've been doing a lot of searching of caches in the past few months, and I seem to remember one challenge or puzzle cache where you had to find a cache that was hidden/placed on the day you started geocaching.

I forgot to bookmark it, and now I can't find it. If anyone knows which one I'm talking about (or if there are multiple ones), can you place the GC code in this thread?

Thanks!

FOUND IT!

Actually, found *them* ... 3 caches that meet the conditions. I'm sure the first one I saw was King Boreas' cache in Minnesota. Here's the list of the ones I found:

Minnesota - GC1VPTJ The KB Challenge: It's All About You!

Florida - GC2A83F It's all About You Challenge 2

Utah - GC1G6P9 The day it all began ( for you )

Is there a way to search GC.com for a cache by placement date? GSAK lets you and tells me there isnt one in Manitoba to match our start date...

You could create a PQ with the Placed Date between X and X, but I'm not sure how large a radius you can make one query. (Edit: Seems like quite large these days)

You are so smart!

I did it and it found us 4 caches - I set it for 5000 miles from our home coordinates. 2 in Wisconsin, 1 in Minnisota and 1 in Michigan.

Thanks!
