Multis

Recommended Posts

Curious what the longest stage multi is that you have done. Best multi?

 

http://coord.info/GCNJXH This one is 3 stages, that require driving from one to the next. It was great. Pick a nice day, go for a drive, see the foundations of barns, see some county forest tracts previously unknown to us.

 

This one is archived now, but it was also a great multi. No driving required, just walking around a new-to-us area, gathering information.

http://coord.info/GCKBFW some walking, some figgerin', great views.

 

Best multi: http://coord.info/GCKBFW Driving around the back roads, leads to a fantastic location for the final.

 

What are your thoughts on a 10 stage with field puzzles?

 

It would depend on how difficult the field puzzles would be. The number of stages doesn't bother me. I would appreciate knowing how long it would take, how far apart are the stages.

 

I like multis. Not many people do.

 

The more stages you have, the more maintenance will probably be needed. If stages go missing, then people get irked to have invested the time just to end up not being able to complete the multi because something got broke somewhere.

I'm one of a few in my area that enjoys multis to begin with.

- But puzzles in the field, depending on their difficulty, may make me hit the ignore too.

Field puzzles include sudoku, cipher, qr, and then there is some UV and ping pongs and maybe a cryptex involved LOL

You lost me at "sudoku". ugh

 

And qr.

 

I have no idea what "ping pongs" are.

 

I hope that you are very clear on the cache page that these types of puzzles are involved.

 

Mention of special tools would be nice, too.

 

Good luck. Sounds like a lot of work to set up and maintain, but it also sounds like "favorite point" potential is high.

I own a couple longer multis (over 10 stages) and the rarely get visited so don't get your hopes up. I have this one that rarely gets visited and can easily take over 3 hours. It has 31 stages but that's deceiving. The first stage has 4 sets of coordinates in it. Each of the 4 coordinates has a cache located there and each of those 4 have 4 sets of coordinates in them (and so on and so forth). There's only one correct path that will take you to the final. Those that find it usually enjoy it but also know that they'll probably be frustrated. Those that don't just get frustrated.

 

I've done all types of multis from a simple 2 stage up to a few that are longer than 10 stages. The longer ones have to be close to home for me because travel is usually with family and they won't tolerate a long break time without me, except occasionally. Be as specific as you can regarding an estimated duration, how long the hike will be (if it's one area), how much you might have to drive, and how many stages. Include information about the field puzzles (without mentioning what they are unless you want to tell them). Most cachers will probably NOT visit this one unless it's done with a group.
