1. What does TFTC mean in a log?

2. In creating a multi-cache, do the individual parts of the cache have to be .10 miles/528 ft apart or can they be closer?

Thanks for the advice in advance-

"Thanks for the cache" -- people sometimes add the initials of the placer behind that (TFTCE = Thanks for the cache eagleyes)

Yes they can be closer -- or farther (sometimes MUCH MUCH farther Shocked )
You will need to write a note to the approver saying where the coords of the final cache are..... probably won't be a real problem in your neighborhood

I thought you had to tell them where all the stages were.

I think mtn-man prefers this, yes. I've heard of multi's recently that were approved without this though. I think the logic behind it is to make sure that the steps don't get within 500' of other caches.
