Geocache Description:

A Point In The Distance

Hello Again Cachers!! I have developed this caching adventure to challenge your minds as well as your determination. This multi-cache may require a little algebra and geometry to find… or, a whole lot of luck.

This cache will require you to visit two (2) locations in order to figure out the coordinates for the final cache. These two (2) locations, as well as the final cache, are not within walking distance from one another and will require some driving time.

The first location (stage 1) is located at the coordinates given above. It is a 35mm film canister that contains coordinates to stage 2, along with the bearing to the final cache from stage 1. At stage 2 you will also find a 35mm film canister. It contains only the bearing to the final cache from the stage 2. Now you have everything you need. Just determine where these two (2) bearing lines intersect, and you find the cache.

There are probably several different ways to find the location of the final cache. Remember, if you use the mapping method, the accuracy of this method is pretty bad. Please post in your log, the method used to locate the cache.

All stages have been hidden very well. If you feel a stage is missing, let me know and I will go check it. No clues will be given for this multi-cache.

Please take time to rehide each stage as good, or better than you found them. This will ensure that this adventure remains a challenge for everyone.
