Geocache Description:

This is a very difficult ( more mental than physical ) 6 stage multi. The general intent is providing fun and enjoyment for more experianced cachers. Do not attempt this cache if easily frustrated. general information under listing for part 1 of this Paugussett series.
Stage 1, 3 and 5 info micros can be "worked" with up to 18 inches of snow on the ground.

stage 1 find UTM coords for stage 2.
Get this one nailed down first.

stage 2 find N coords for monument
driven by whats inside

stage 3 find coords for stage 4
success hinges on this fact

stage 4 find W coords for monument
micro container is contained

The "monument" located at stage 5, is an obvious easy find, its actually a corner boundry surveyors marker [ bench mark? ] 24 inches high. The more difficult to find micro has coords for part 3 and a 3 letter code, emailed to me to claim bragging rights...the easy find micro has distances in meters between parts 1-3 and 2-3. This monument can be located with only one coordinate !

stage 5 at this monument [CSF 103] find one or both micros
not more than 42 feet away.

stage 6 this is part 3 cache, an easy traditional hide.
A large rock markes the spot.
