Title: Finding five caches in five counties
Post by: cd.cuts on October 22, 2012, 23:59:17
Hello all,

We am trying to qualify for a Bingo challenge, and the only square we am missing to qualify for the challenge is to prove that we have found five caches in five counties in one day. To be honest I have absolutely no idea whether we do qualify or not.

How easy would it be for somebody who already has GSAK to be able to tell whether we qualify or not?

there's is a macro out for Ont counties. (name keeps changing)
Should be a straight forward query. What's the GC# of the challenge?

It is GC2E4CB (MPC's Bingo Challenge), square O1.

The CO of the Bingo Cache has pointed me to the following macro: CountyStateUpdate.gsk

It works very well and fills up county information for all of Canada, the US and for some European countries as well.

The only bad news is that thanks to this macro, we now know that we have reached 4 counties in a day multiple times, but never 5 [:(]

At least now we know how to tell what caches are in what county.

Yes, that's the macro name I was thinking of. So, how many kilometres of driving do you have to do for 5 counties?  :o
