2 mile rule for puzzles in Europe?

Posted · Report post

In anticipation of a trip, I solved a puzzle in Europe.  Geochecker said that I had the correct coordinates, but they were 4 miles from the original.  The cache published in 2012. Does Europe have the same 2 mile or km rule?

Wouldn't that really depend upon the reviewer?  A rule is a rule, but if the reviewer doesn't enforce the rule...

Yup, I'm pretty sure we have the same rules, I would just contact the CO to make sure the coordinates are correct.

CS is right though, rules are only rules if you enforce them ;)

The geochecker congratulated me, and I know that I solved it correctly. 

It does make it more difficult when trying to solve puzzles close to where we will be going, only to find that it is further away than I expected.

This is probably the the most terrible problem a person could ever have.  ::)

Well, next to not being able to solve it, of course.

If you come across any MEGA puzzles in Europe, I might be able to help you with them.

 

It's possible the CO lied misled the reviewer on the actual location of the cache.
