When the GC3DX78 cache was published, the intent was to let people who like to explore and travel, have the opportunuty to roll it up in this one multi state challenge.

It never dawned on us that there would be a FTF competition culminating it two separate caching groups taking off at different times and making non-stop six-state marathon runs. As it turned out, one group found the final and went to grab caches, the other grabbed the caches, then went to sign the log. But, believe it or not, they were actually finishing the entire challenge at the same moment!
At least after talking to both teams, it is really too close to call.
In the spirit of friendly competition, and acknowledging the incredible effort put forth by both teams, they can all claim a Co-FTF.

Congratulations to ~HideNseekers~, Isjustus4, Rattlebox, and F1rebirds.
A job Well done by all.

Congrats to the four teams for taking up the challenge, and taking your own epic routes to the FTF. Sure to be unforgettable! And thanks Run N Search, for making it all possible.

Now when is that Multi-Country Challenge Publishing? Spring Break Trip! Cool Cool

That sounded like a fun run! I loved reading the logs! I guess I can take it easy now there is no FTF to be had any more.

Congrats on all the teams involved in the race!

Crazy people!
I grabbed 3 states in one day last Wednesday. Too bad for me I didn't know about this cache then. I only grabbed 2 in Arizona! Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad
