Looked for this one until I ran out of light --- then looked a little more. After getting a hint from a previous finder, I think I know where I went wrong. I'll try to get back out soon.
Stages one and two have been found. My geeky side was deliriously happy to have a practical use for all of those trigonometric functions from my past, so I worked out stage three on paper. I feel relatively comfortable that my calculations are within a 200 foot accuracy, so we'll see how it goes...

Awwww yeah! I was happy to dust off the trigonometry in my brain, and it turned out great! I took stages one and two, and based on the distance and bearing between the two in my GPS, took to pencil and paper. With a little help from my trusty scientific calculator, four sets of measurements, four projections, and some averaging, my resulting coordinates were twenty feet from the cache!
Took a couple of WG$ and the WJTB. In the excitement I can't quite recall what I left. Thanks for a REALLY COOL hide!
