Geocache Description:

This multiple-stage cache is along a paved walking/biking trail. While bushwhacking is one thing I love about caching, it was not feasible in this location--all stages are near the trail. Find the clues described below at several locations. Plug in the answers and that will lead to an intermediate stage, which has information on where to find the final. Round trip is less than 2.5 miles with very little change in elevation (great for kids on bikes).

Too busy to read the description? Want to wing it? Here's the Clue Sheet.

I was inspired to place this cache while working on "Cacher's Revenge: Ten things we hate about caching" by curtiszarger, heist454, and patfurg. The adventure they set up there is very challenging and entertaining, and got me thinking about a different viewpoint. As some silly blokes once sang, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life". So I set out to find some things that tickle my fancy when it comes to caching.

That which you seek. (Actual camo may vary)

Here are ten things I love about caching, in no particular order: a good walk or bike ride, multiple stages to show the way, secret playgrounds for the kids, storm drains, creek crossings, projecting waypoints, crossing streams on trees, cool cache containers (thanks zgrav!), puzzles, and stocked ammo cans.

Now there are some cachers out there who probably hate a few things on my list--that's the way it goes, I know! The ones that you may be worried about are not "extreme". Note the difficulty and terrain ratings, and attributes...I really do consider all stages kid-friendly, including the field puzzle.
