You might have caught last week (see Biking and Hiking and Geocaching and Canoeing) that I started a "multi-cache" awhile ago. I didn't mention which one, but it was called Multi on Mount Falcon. Yesterday morning, I headed back to Mt. Falcon Open Space Park, and finished this multi-cache off.
I'm sure that not all multi-caches are the same, but this one started off by having to find the coordinates listed on the geocaching page.
That first find contained a piece of paper with a list of coordinates. The idea is that each coordinate has cache with a clue needed to find the final location. You need all 6 clues to get the final cache.
In this case, each of the individual finds has a piece of paper with one part of a latitude or longitude. Once you put together all 6, you have the final location. Pretty simple.
For example, one of the stages had a piece of paper which looked like this:

It took me 3 separate trips to get all the clues, but finally, yesterday morning, I did.
There you go. Yes, I'm a geek, but I think this stuff is pretty cool.
