Anyone have any tips for Ring puzzles?
There is one in particular that has me baffled.
I don't even know where to begin with this thing. GC11FD6
I've printed out the puzzle, cut out the rings and even laminated them
Cool
I've been playing with it off and on for a few months but I still haven't figured this out. I don't even know where to start. (I have noticed the names of local cachers in the puzzle, though)

Just an FYI - posts like this should use the Puzzle Cache Forum area. Here is the description of that forum area.

Stuck on a particular puzzle cache and need a little help? Solved a difficult one and want others to know about it? Looking to create your own puzzle cache? Note that this forum should not be used to post dead giveaways or spoilers for any puzzle cache.

Please also keep exact puzzle solves off the public forums to respect the cache owner. If you'd like to respond to the OP with the specific answer to solving this puzzle please do so via PM.

I've moved this post to the puzzle cache area.

Not a dead give-away nor a spoiler beyond what it presented: The route to the solve is on the cache page. See and apply the 'Puzzle Hint'......has the hint always been there?

Hmmmm, and this is a Lonely Cache...................... Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Good Luck!

DING DING DING - Solved the mystery. I cut out the pieces, put a push pin through them, gave it a few spins, and came up with multiple answers. A few more turns and voila'. A very interesting twist on the nested rings.

From spinning the computer or from working the puzzle?

I photo copied the rings for each number of rings that are there , cut them out. I stuck then together with a tac on a square of cardbord and worked them around to several combos until I had coords that worked out when I put them in the GPSr...use the hint just like I had to use the hint on your puzzle helidood. I forgot the solve but I had to work it for quite some time. Good Luck
