7 Realms Of Darkness Multi-cache

This cache has been archived.

Kelinore: It is with a heavy heart that it's time Realms retires once and for all. We were all set to open it back up tonight, but someone once again sabotaged the cache and stole all of the tacks we worked so hard over the past few weeks to fix. Thank you to all who have tackled Realms. I have the fondest memories of this cache, especially the first night that it opened, people were literally RUNNING down the hills tumbling their way around just racing to get to the end. JayB10 and I will never forget all the blood sweat and tears that went into making this monster. But it has become a financial burden as well, costing us around $75 in tacks each time we have to fix it up. We do not have the time (nor desire) to continue to maintain it. It's had a great 10 year run, but it's time to RIP Realms.

Geocache Description:

What do you think of when you are alone in the dark? What comes
into your mind? Do you hear things that aren't really there? Do you
see things that are just a figment of your imagination? Do you
scare easily at the slightest bump in the night?

If so, this cache is not for you.



Epic Geocaching





Please Note! This Park LOCKS The Gate * AT * 10pm.



If you are not out by 10, they will lock the gate with your car in there and with the way the lot is designed, there is no way to get it out until the following morning. With that in mind, be sure to start your hunt no later than 8pm to make sure you have time to get back out with time to spare. We honestly recommend that if you don't have the cache in hand before 9:30pm you are going to have to turn around and try another day.





UPDATE: JUNE 27TH 2011: IT HAS BEEN REQUESTED BY THE RANGERS OF THE PARK THAT ANYONE DOING 7 REALMS MUST PUT A SIGN ON THEIR DASHBOARD STATING "7 REALMS GEOCACHE". THE RANGERS SAY THEY ARE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH TEENAGERS DRINKING IN THE PARK AFTER DARK. THIS WILL HELP DIFFERENTIATE YOU FROM THEM. FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN THIS CACHE HAVING TO BE ARCHIVED.


This is a nocturnal cache and it's best to do this after dusk. For an extra challenge, try it during daytime hours! Many have done this successfully now!

Please use the waypoint below for parking.

From the starting point you will see 2 reflectors in the tree directly in front of you. That is the type of marker you will see along the entire journey. Some tacks are eye level and some are significantly higher.


Please be sure to take the following precautions:


**We do not recommend doing this cache after a period of heavy rain.**

** Please use a buddy - Caching alone is not recommended **

** Let someone know where you are before leaving **

** Take extra batteries **

** Take hydration **

** Track back highly recommended**

** Waypoint often!! **

Most of all, have fun and enjoy the hunt!! Feel free to describe your adventure in as much detail as you'd like, but please no spoilers as to some of the things that do, or that might come into play on this outing.


This cache will take you at MINIMUM 1 to 1 1/2 hours to complete, so plan accordingly.

Difficulty and terrain can vary per season. There is NO tree climbing in here, just an FYI. This is suitable for older kids, but would not recommend very young ones due to length of hike (2+ miles)



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know that there are probably many of you out there who don't have a "buddy system" to do this cache. If you are coming from out of Columbus, please email me prior to coming so that you can obtain my phone # if you are in need of help. :)
