If you are using the printed pathfinder sheet, the embosser seal and answer to the question for each station is required.

If you are using only a smartphone, the answer to the question and a photo (selfie or of a friend) is required.

If you are unable to use the embosser or take a photo, the code is needed to receive credit for that station.
