Indiana Challenge Caches

Everyone needs a goal… something to aspire to.  That’s what challenge caches are all about.  Every state has there own special series of challenges some can be very unique.  While it might seem there are some duplicate challenges (and there are) the final coordinates might be in a different part of the state.  That way if you are in Southern Indiana you don’t have to drive halfway across the state to get a certain challenge.  I’ve tried to put a simplified version of the requirements for each challenge, but some are so complex I’ve put “Just look at the cache page” even with that I would check the cache page for the exact requirements on any of these. Some caches are Premium Member only caches so just look in the description to see.

Unfortunately as the sport grows and various areas around the state add similar challenge caches so people don’t have to travel to get the ones already set up (just sayin’). This has become a challenge to maintain (pun intended) This a list of challenge caches in Indiana taken originally from shell1fish’s bookmark list of state challenge caches H-M.  added to multiple times by lakedawgs and completely redone thanks to a bookmark list from TeamMCH.  TeamMCH’s current bookmark list has 315 entries as of 10-13-14 and according to the list is updated weekly.  What is missing would be the description of the challenge so you’ll have to click on the link to find out what you need to do.
