Return of the Space Pigs Published

The last cache in my Space Pigs series has passed reviewed and is now published. It is cache GC1YP5F. Those who go through this series will notice that each one builds on the previous. So in other words its a good idea to do them in order.

With the new cache published, I now eagerly await to see who will clam the most coveted FTF. The FTF cacher will find 2 unactivated geocoins as a reward for the hard work in solving the puzzles, and equally hard effort for going after the cache. One of the GCs provides a fitting end to this series.

Now on to hide my multicache!

Coming Soon - My First Multicache Hide

While creating the Space Pigs series, I started getting the idea for my first multicache hide (and perhaps my only one).

However, I can't take credit for the ideas of the stages without giving credit to both Dawgdoc and The Muggle Family, whose hide techniques opened my eyes to possibilities, and gave me enough material from which to work to make these containers.

There will be 5 stages, and the hide techniques already have this at a 5-star difficulty. Depending on the location I choose, look forward to a terrain rating of at least 3 stars (I'll be shooting for 4).

Space Pigs Geocaching Series

Winding down in my first geocaching series (well geocache hides for that matter) and I wanted to go all out. First I wanted to make sure that the puzzle was especially difficult, and then I wanted to find a place that had some challenging terrain.

The puzzle was an easy find and fit nicely into the series. A nice end to a series that I've enjoyed creating.

The location is proving to be a bit trickier. I found a nice location (I thought). Really cool tree growing out of the rocks that was reminiscent of a bonsai tree, but then the reviewer told me that it was too close to another geocache. Ah! I think I may have found a nice alternate location. Will find out this weekend when I trek out there. The hike for this last one is significant, and the terrain will leave many questioning whether they should go after it at night.

If you are a geocacher on Okinawa, like puzzles and hikes, then please check out my Space Pigs series.

For those that are following this series, if you're looking forward to the publishing of my 3rd and final cache in this series, then I'll let you in on a little secret -- I highly recommend completing the puzzles for Space Pigs and Space Pigs Strike Back first.
