+Srondar & Cryss Posted September 17, 2010 Share Posted September 17, 2010 I am wondering what the geocaching community thinks about a 2 or 3 stage cache which would be something like this: "Go to the coordinates and look for an orange blaze (or some object). There you will find stage 2 which will give you instructions to find the cache. The cache is not near the coordinates". My reasoning for this is that it eliminates the use of Google Earth or GeocacheNavigator to see an arial view of the exact cache location, which seems to me about as much fun as having the cache owner take me there and point to it. Goolge Earth can be very detailed and can sometimes show the precise clump of bushes or pile of rocks where a cache is hidden (if the owners coordinates are accurate). Not much different than having the person placing the cache post a picture of the location on the cache page. We all know this is a great money maker for the wireless networks, software publishers and others who are agressivley promoting it, but isn't it eliminating the elements of challenge and skill in the sport...
