The Lonely Cache Challenge is a type of Challenge Cache.


The Lonely Cache Challenge involves finding a lonely cache that has been unvisited in over a year.  The Wisconsin Geocaching Association host a Lonely Cache Game using Lonely Caches located in Wisconsin.


Usually, there is only a single rule.  A cache must be found that has not been found in over a year.  Other variations may include how many lonely caches you must find or some kind of point system based on how long a cache went unfound, requiring a certain number of points to claim the challenge.
