I am glad I put a watch on this one and saw when RC Flyer and his crew were going to go for it. I got a later start than I planned so I did not stop on the way to look This Ice Age Trail Rocks. If I had not lingered so long at the parking lot, I might have had time to look for that one first. As it was, it took a while for the ETrex to boot up, find my location and point me in the right direction. At first, I only saw the section of the trail that goes in the other direction. As I was standing there, looking at the slope, 3 runners came up the hill. They confirmed that the trail in that direction went to Riverside Park.

When I turned in the correct direction, I could see a 'people crossing' sign and figured that was there the other section of trail went. Sure enough, when I headed in that direction, I saw the trail markers. As I left the road side and headed into the woods, I paused to read the sign. I noticed that this section of trail is closed during the gun deer season. This cache does not have the hunting area attribute activated but the Rocks cache does so I was wearing the blaze orange side of my jacket out.

It was already 12:10 when I passed Rocks. I knew I would probably walk lots slower on the trail than the others, so I kept going. I wondered how soon I would hear the others catching up to me. When I got close the location of the chirp, I could see somebody there. Since it was only one person, I guessed it was hot RCFlyer and his crew.

Dingoagogo and I had a nice chat while we waited for the others. The 'flash mob' turned out to be just the 4 of us. Because I had on blaze orange on RCflyer and the Commander probably saw me about the time I heard them.

I appreciated the hand down the hill at the final location. Usually I am a solo cache and I enjoyed being part of a team for awhile.

This is the first chirp cache I have been in on the find of and also the first cache with a D of 5. It also filled in the 10/5 spot on the 366 grid. Thanks for the hide. I am giving it a favorite. (#822)

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.
