  Geocache Name: In the Distance (GC4JZTK) Difficulty/Terrain Rating: 1/1.5 Why this is the Geocache of the Week: Multi-Caches are a great challenge for any geocacher looking for a little something more than a traditional. Some multis require you to gather information at the coordinates and plug it into a formula to get the coordinates for the next stage. This multi does away with secondary coordinates altogether. Once you arrive at the first stage, you’ll have to use your keen eyesight to see where the final container lies. What geocachers are saying: “What a great idea for a cache. Well worth […]
