With nothing better to do, Miss Tickle, Pincognize, OneCacheMind, and I decided to make someone else's life miserable, and so was born Triskaphobia.
The intrepid few will find 3 stages with a final physical cache.

Did I mention... Do not go alone!
Obey all posted signs. If cachers disregard the rules, it is likely this cache will have to be removed. It is not necessary to disregard any posted signs or rules to obtain the clues or cache. And, remember just like mom said, always put things back where you found them.
Please take pictures and post them, or better yet, send them to me! I would love to see how you conquered this one.
Original Contents of Physical Cache and FTF prize: 2 Mad Rock Carabiners, 1 SMC rappel ring, 10’ of 1” webbing, handmade wood burned Triskaphobia tokens, pedometer, and various swag.
Please place something of equal or greater value in the cache if you take something out.
The first puzzle, when solved, will give you the coordinates for Stage 1. Coordinates for stages 1-3 are accurate within 30’. Each stage has a physical object to be found that is ‘micro’ in size that will give coordinates to the next stage and a piece of a puzzle to be solved at Stage 3. Each one of the clue objects is in plain sight if you are at the right position. The physical cache is a moderately sized ammo box hidden in the woods at or very near the coordinates given. Locating the physical cache once you have the coordinates in hand is not meant to be difficult or tricky.
Puzzle 1 requires 3 steps using 3 types of ‘knowledge’ or ‘skills’ to solve. The posted coordinates are not part of the puzzle.
