Found it yoopsconsin found Three-legged Dog Cache

Friday, October 04, 2013Wisconsin

Wow, what a challenge and a great Multi! I gathered the clues for Legs 1 & 2 last weekend, then grabbed Leg 3 yesterday at lunch time. Leg 3 was a tough find, I almost gave up on it. Then last night while it was misting and sprinkling, my #1 daughter went with me to try to find the final. On our very first day of Geocaching back in March, we walked within 25 feet of this one! This time of year it is so thick in there, that even though we knew from the riddle kind of what we were looking for, I had to get within 6 feet of the cache before I saw the spot. All the clues are in good supply and all dry, just a tad damp in #3. A couple of weeks ago I was scouting for a new cache location, and the spot I found turned out to be about 12 feet from leg #2, and while logging the benchmark there, I noticed a lot of the other logs mentioned this cache, so I figured it was time to start figuring this one out. I used the weighted average method along with the riddle to confirm the coordinates once I used an online converter to switch them from decimal version. Thanks for keeping up this great cache! SL.

infoA multi-cache ("multiple") involves two or more locations, the final location being a physical container. There are many variations, but most multi-caches have a hint to find the second cache, and the second cache has hints to the third, and so on. An offset cache (where you go to a location and get hints to the actual cache) is considered a multi-cache.
