This cache requires you to have found 20 caches in 60,000ft or 18,300m. Can a checker be written for this?

There are some rules:

For this challenge, you must list no more than 20 caches you have found within the United Kingdom. The combined height of all 20 (or less) caches must add up (at minimum) the legendary height it used to fly at of the now retired aircraft. To make it more challenging and to give you a greater sense of achievement some additional rules apply.

- Each cache you use for this challenge must be logged on a separate calendar day. Claiming this cache is not a race, you are encouraged to use different caches at various locations around the country.

- Traditional caches only. Letterbox caches are allowed providing they are verifiable, e.g. at the given co-ordinates. No other cache types are permitted with one exception (see next point).

- It is allowed for 3 virtual caches to be included. You must have visited the virtual cache at the given co-ordinates yourself and included a photograph at GZ of yourself/GPSr with your original log. Unfortunately, no YOSM finds are allowed as part of this challenge.

- Past finds are permitted, providing they meet with all the listed criteria.

- Only caches located within the United Kingdom can be used for this challenge.

Many thanks,

Firstly, I think the requirement that no two finds can be on the same day may be problematic, the guidelines dont seem to exclude it but I am unsure if it would get past a reviewer. https://www.geocaching.com/help/index.php?pg=kb.chapter&id=127&pgid=206#timeLimited

However, this will require a new script even if the time factor is OK, as there are existing scripts that can do the sum of 20 highest altitudes in a country, but none that can limit the max number of any type as well.

GreyHams your first remark is not relevant because this is a Grandfathered cache

Your is indeed true and I will place this request as a new script required

AH yes, my bad..... I should have looked at the code harder.

If none of the authors modify their scripts, I will create a new one.

Adjusted a script and here's a checker for you:


Please test and let us know if it's suitable. Note that there's no way to ensure Letterbox Hybrid caches are "verifiable" so no Letterbox Hybrids will be used to qualify in this checker. Not sure what's meant by YOSM finds?
