Welcome to my multy, its a lot of work.
This cache has two sections, one section per park (they are right across the road from each other). You will need all your caching skills to complet this multy, I belive it will test even the most experienced cachers.
THIS CACHE IS LONG, so plan accordingly. Start early or you will end late. If you don't like a challenge and get frustrated easily, i'd avoid this cache like fire. This is my attempt to make something for all you EXTREME cachers out there (you know who you are)
You will be doing lots of walking, climbing, bushwhacking, math, puzzle solving, and even water wading, so watch out!
-Remember to use stealth, there is a surprisingly large amount of people who go out to this area, and I'd hate for some nosy muggle to ruin this cache.
-Bring pen and paper, YOU WILL NEED THEM! You will be taking lots of notes, and you need these notes to solve the final cache puzzle!
-There are a lot of parts to this cache, finding them shouldn't be too difficult, but will require some looking in the general area of each cord.
-Be prepared to climb, nothing too extreme, but still a bit difficult.
-There will be math, but don't let that scare you, its all very basic.
-In the second section of this cache, be very careful where you walk. There are lots of fallen tree to tumble over, holes to trip in, and I even found a few abandoned fences still covered in barbed wire, so be careful (and maybe be up to date on your tetanus shot )
-You have to cross a river, it is unavoidable, but it will be near the end of this multy, so plan accordingly.
-Bring a friend! Not only will everything be just a bit easier, but when your doing difficult climbing/trudging in the woods, there is always a chance to get hurt! Be safe people!
-Signing the log is a must to take credit.
-Please put everything back exactly where you found it, if even one part is missing, someone else can not complete this cache.
-The final stage is a little complicated, but please don't force anything, if you have the correct information, everything should work just fine.
As always, Cache at your own risk!
Please be respectful of these preserves, this is a beautiful area, and it really deserves to stay that way, so please don't destroy any plants or animals in your cache hunt.
The cords will take you to the first part of this cache, and the hint below will deal with ONLY that part.
