I've recently learned of the following definitions regarding additional waypoints (which is what you use to let the reviewer know of stages in a multi or puzzle cache, or parking coords for all to see, etc):

Quote:
Parking area = suggested parking

Trail Head = access point for a trail

Stage of a Multi = intermediate physical waypoint

Question to answer = intermediate virtual waypoint where information needs to be gathered

Reference point = point of reference when remaining designations are not applicable

Final Location = the final container with the log book.


The thing to note is "Stage of a Multi" vs "Question to answer" and "physical" vs "virtual".

does that mean we only have to report physical stages of a multi-cache/puzzle?

No, still report the virtual stages as well, just mark them as "question to answer" when selecting the waypoint type.
