Geocache Description:

This is a four stage multi-cache consisting of three virtuals and one regular cache. Best parking is at N41*42.621 / W87*54.781. Light bushwhacking required at the very end.

1. The given coordinates will take you to the Gate Keeper virtual which has two three-digit numbers on it. Subtract the first number from the latitude and the second number from the longitude of the gate.

2. The RIPCP3 virtual cache has a number of objects evenly spaced around it. Add this number to both N41*42.125 and W87*54.723 for your next destination.

3. The CP2ICU virtual cache has two dates on it. Add the difference between the dates to both N41*42.146 and W87*54.479 for the final hunt.

4. The Final cache (the real one) is a large painted pretzel jar hidden off of the ground.

Feel free to log each stage as a separate find. C)B-)
