Geocache Description:

The cache is both a multi and a puzzle. It's listed as a multi as the posted coords will bring you to stage one. Though stage one is not small at all, it might be difficult to find (especially with snow cover).

This cache has been out for awhile, by the long count calendar. It's constructed to make it until December 21st, 2012 - after which I suppose it should be archived as a new cycle will begin.

Looking for this two stage multi is more like embarking on a relatively short archaeological expidition. You'll need to be able to search and interpret glyphs like Indiana Jones. A little familiarity with appropriate mathematic principles might be helpful as well.

8/11/2011: after a couple DNF's, I went looking for my cache myself. I haven't been there in quite some time and it turns out I couldn't find stage 1 . . . . so until I get it fixed up, I'll just show you what it said:
