    Default Well look at that!

    It looks like someone dropped big poker chips all over Bangor. Was it the folks at Hollywood Slots of the Casino YES people from Washington county.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    If those are .1 miles apart, how come some overlap? Are some archived caches?
    Cool idea, this would be very useful to the cache approvers.

    The circles have a 528 foot radius. Therefore, the center of one circle must be outside the ring of a neighboring circle. Also, the blue circles are this weekends events, which do not fall under the .1 mile rule. Virtual caches and stages of some multis also do not fall under this rule. Hope that makes sense. In other words, if you were going to place a new cache, the actual cache location could not be within any of those circles - excepting any exempt ones, like the events.

    Too funny!

    If I see my image on the front page of the news tomorrow, I'll know who tipped them off.

    I'm curious about this....maybe you can explain why some of the stages count and some don't?

    Multis come in all flavors. One form uses physical stages, often micros with coords in them, or it could be a full size box. Anyway, in that case, the .1 mile rule would apply since there are two physical "caches". Other multis, like Tic Tac Bangor use virtual or "question to answer" stages. In this case, there would not be a problem if a physical cache were located within .1 mile of a virtual stage of a multi, so it would probably be allowed.

    Now, the part that makes it all confusing.... When you hide a multi and you list the coordinates of the stages, you may select at that time whether each stage is a "question to answer" or a "stage of a multicache". As a cache hider you can define what the stages are, so it is allowable to classify a "question to answer" stage as a "stage of a multicache".

    Default Don't even need a GPSr

    When I have the time to get back to geocaching I won't even need the GPSr...I'll just zoom in with Google Earth and drive to the cache!!
