Found it bartacus found A Point In The Distance

Thursday, October 27, 2005North Carolina

Original Log 10/25/2005:
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.

Update 10/27/2005:
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...

Update 10/27/2005 #2:
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!

infoA multi-cache ("multiple") involves two or more locations, the final location being a physical container. There are many variations, but most multi-caches have a hint to find the second cache, and the second cache has hints to the third, and so on. An offset cache (where you go to a location and get hints to the actual cache) is considered a multi-cache.
