Forgotten Years Challenge

Gsix5666 is a local cacher, a prolific hider, in Roseville, Michigan.  In the last few months he created a series of wonderful challenges called the 5-, 10-, 15-, 20-, 25- and 30-Forgotten Years Challenges.
The idea of this cache is to encourage people to visit neglected caches.
Basically, you can only count the caches that have been neglected for 6-months or more. Take the number of days between the last visits and yours.  Add them together to equal 5 years, 10 years, etc.

It's caused quite a flurry of cachers seeking out the "Forgotten", with people crowing victory on the Southeastern Michigan Geocaching Group's FB page.  There's a neat little macro for GSAK to help them out.  I qualified awhile ago, but TaGeez needed a few more.  We had two victories this weekend!

WDC - Phone a Friend GC1C3ZA was 13 months unfound!

and WDC - E-Z Projection GC2DKBY unfound 15 months!

One more find and TaGeez can claim all 6 challenges!  Woot!
