Looking for someone to assist with this cache. I don't want to go out there alone as it is a somewhat remote area. Might be a good one for February 29th.

I'd be up for it. We've never tried that one. It always seems to need maintenance. If it's for Feb. 29, we'd all need back-ups for a find in case we end up DNFing "Message". Wink

Haven't found that one or any of the jar42 ones right there. We have been saving them for the right moment. Perhaps that could be February 29.

Just so there isn't a blizzard... Wink

Hope you find it! I consider that cache a "legacy" cache, before container guidelines were more strictly enforced. It covers a few miles, so plan on driving a bit. Let me know if you need a PAF!

Which they will, unless they get the inside scoop ahead of time. At least that's our impression. Think most, if not all finders in the last several years, have needed it. The cache needs WPT3 updated by some means, and then it is doable using the information on the cache page. But perhaps the repeated letters of P.A.F. in the logs spells that out. Elmer FFFudd might agree Unsure Blink

So is someone going to correct my coords if I PM someone who has already found it? Jim are you volunteering?

I've sent confirmation after seeing the solve. I also provided my notes to help "guide" the others that may join.

When it becomes a group effort, does everyone solve the puzzle/multi on their own and meet at the final or does one person solve and tell the others where to go? FYI ... I do have the correct final coords. Thanks for being the Geochecker CJ.

Each group and each cache is different. On this one, for us, since we haven't gone for it at all, I would prefer to start from the beginning. If a waypoint is missing and you have the info, then we could use it.

Before doing this, I'll check out the cache thoroughly, and all help will be considered, but I'd still like to see what the CO intended, if that can be replicated to some degree.

Sounds good SL. Are you going to do it all in one day or 2? How does 2 pm at the final sound if you do it all in one day? Two hours to hunt and an hour to get home.
