A very well done cache. From simple and easy to tricky and annoying. Stage 1 was almost a drive up and an easy find, drove close to 2 and 3, deciphering got a bit harder by stage 3, but simple enough. Stage 4 was killer, have fun in spring, stage 5 brought the first of my misadventures today, walked into a branch funny and it knocked the glasses off my face, took a bit to find them again. Stage 6 was once again fairly easy, although we had a harder time figuring out how to get to stage 7 from there. Stage 8 we still had some guess work left, but sussed it out rather quickly. At which point I discovered I had lost my PDA pen at stage 7. Traded CDs and added a ziplock for the log. Back to stage 7, crawling around on hands and knees with the headlamp, I picked the needle out of the haystack in no time and found my pen. All in all, I think we got through in about 3 hours.
