    1/1 – Cache difficulty/terrain rating shorthand. The difficulty number is always presented first, followed by the terrain rating. Each number can range from 1 to 5 in 0.5 increments. A 1/1 cache is the easiest to find and get to. A terrain rating of 1 indicates that it's handicapped accessible, while a terrain rating of 5 indicates extreme terrain, or that specialized equipment (climbing gear, boat, scuba gear, etc.) is required.

    ACIDKA – See “YACIDKA”.

    Additional Logging Requirement – A condition, beyond merely finding the cache, that must be met in order to be allowed to log a cache as a find. The owner reserves the right to delete logs that do not follow the requirements. While cache owners are allowed to set logging requirements, the more outlandish requirements are not looked well upon by the caching community. The requirements may be listed on the cache page, or in the cache container. A Breeder Cache is one example of a logging requirement.
