We've been poking away at this challenge and on our trip out west, we plotted out to get a few more pages and state parks on our way. I thought Lake Carlos was on page 45, because that's what the atlas says. Imagine the surprise when my map came back with page 53 instead.

Looking at the coordinates for the first stage of that cache, they are 46 00.0047.
Page 45's northern limit is .000.

Not a big deal, we needed that page, too, but now that I colored in the wrong page on my atlas, it will bug me no end until this wrong is corrected! Normally we try and cache a page with some intensity, but because this was a "passing through on our way" trip, we only found that one.

We had something similar happen while doing the original Wisconsin challenge. Must be our destiny or something.

You're paranoid with the delorme challenges, aren't you? Laughing

Not paranoid, just detail oriented. It would be a shame to think you've covered all your bases, ready to go look for the final and then realize you missed a detail 279 miles from home.

We know people that's happened to, too! Including, as I said, almost us for Wisconsin.
