Like it’s nearby sibling, a certain amount of equipment is necessary to reach one of the stages and the final cache of this four part multi. No rope is necessary, although if you’re doing “that other cache”, you might as well bring it along to increase your comfort level. Without further ado, but with profound apologies to The Bard for plagiarizing/mutilating the opening lines of Macbeth, here is the beginning to this clue based Letterbox Hybrid.
When shall we meet a dare?
In earth, fire, water, or air?
When the hurlyburly’s done,
When the cache is found and won.
That will be ere the set of sun.
At the first you will find a tool,
To leave it behind, you’d be a fool.
Just remember after you’ve had your fun
To return the tool so you won’t be called a bum.
At the second will be an ancient tablet,
Put the pieces together and you’ll be set.
The dreaded Trail of Doom and Despair,
Awaits those next, that don’t easily scare.
If you have made it thus far to the third,
It is here that you must have wings of a bird.
For to reach the fourth and final dare,
Will require not feet, but some walking on air.
Hopefully your journey will end with success,
And you will be able to boast of passing this test.
If you decide you want more of the same,
Just remember the puzzle piece that is therein contained.

Trail Notes: Pay particular attention to the attributes posted in the upper right hand corner of this cache description. If there were some way I could make them flash, or blink red, as if to say, “HEY! PAY ATTENTION UP HERE!”, I would. There are significant dermatological hazards on the Trail of Doom and Despair. Appropriate precautions are recommended. You’ve been warned.
