Got Benchmark? This wherigo cache includes finding 8 benchmarks along with a final physical cache.

About This Cartridge

Got Benchmark? This whereigo cache covers eight benchmarks, an existing cache inside a benchmark and a real physical cache over an area covering approximately six vertical miles. All of the benchmarks are of the "park-n-grab" variety.  The final, however, is not and is a quart sized plastic jar wrapped in cammo tape that is located in a nature preserve along the route of this wherigo cache. YOU NEED TO COMPLETE THE TASKS IN SEQUENTIAL ORDER IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THE CACHE.  

Starting Location

The starting location of this cache is at the first of eight benchmarks that you will find along the way.  The first benchmark is located just off the TART Trail on Five Mile Road and is between Five Mile Road and US 31.

Completed!! Cartridge ran fine. All zones triggered fine and we found the final stage no problem. We expected each stage to load the next set of coords for us but we had to manually enter them to continue. Also at the end, we expected a "You have completed the Cartridge" screen but didn't get one so we weren't sure we got the code. But it uploaded fine. We used a Garmin Oregon.

Played on my Garmin Oregon 405 without any problems. This cartridge didn't run like I'm used to seeing. Normally when you have successfully enter a zone, it is taken out of the Locations and the next zone is displayed. We were confused by this even though the cartridge showed that we had entered the zone. At the end, the cartridge showed the final location after answering the 7th zone but then went away when we entered the 8th zone. There were 3 of us playing so we were smart enough to write down the coordinates of the final (as it was still showing for them). We did end up finding the cache itself although there wasn't a completion code once we were done. I rated this with 2 stars mostly because I ended up being frustrated by how this cartridge didn't perform like I'm used to playing. With a little more work, this cartridge could play enjoyably.

We enjoyed this cache and appreciate the work that it took to put it together. Really enjoyed the walk in the nature area to the final "real" cache! TFTF

The cartridge played quite well. The only observation I have about it is that on a Tuesday morning the traffic is pretty heavy to be switching sides of the road to reach the benchmarks. TNX for the fun!
