Little Quest

Can you complete the LITTLE QUEST? Find a particular cache in every county to point you in the direction of the final cache.

Why "Little Quest"? Well, the final is a micro. No messing with big prizes, coins, cheating, etc etc, just a plain simple cache hunt and the pride of the find.

Setting a Little Quest cache?

If you are a county cache-setter, here's what you need to do.

    Label the log book

You will be given two numbers to write at the front of your cache log book. Please add them clearly, in the format below :

 
     


N 111,111
ONE ONE ONE, ONE ONE ONE
W 1,111
ONE, ONE ONE ONE


 
     
    Hide your cache
Hide the cache in your chosen location, within your county. Remember, the difficulty and terrain are up to you, but please keep the cache under one mile from the nearest access road. With the exception of the City Of London cache, all must be larger than a micro. You need to be able to maintain your cache quickly should it be needed. Please make it a prime location - somewhere that everyone in your county would be proud of! Remember, you are showing off your county to all those participating in the Little Quest.
    Create your cache listing

Start a new cache listing over at geocaching.com. Your cache name needs to start LQ:COUNTYNAME, for example :

LQ:LANCS - Coppull Riverside Walk
LQ:GTR LONDON - Wharf Ramble

Once you have entered this info into the Nickname box, scroll down and enter the following information EXACTLY as it appears below :

    Anything else?
Cache co-ordinates, difficulty, terrain, long description, attributes, etc etc etc are to be filled in by you. If all the text in your cache listing appears bunched up, this is because the listing is (correctly) in HTML. You need to type in <p> wherever you want a line gap. This will create a space on your cache page.
