Traditional geocaches include weather-resistant container

In a perfect world.

A similar type is the “multi-stage” geocache. One of these is on the Luce Line Trail in Winsted, near the trestle collapse site.

An unfortunate example as the first stage is defacement of public property.

I can't mention that. It would violate the commercial cache guideline.. Wink Laughing Laughing

Anyhoo, the article was alright. I am always surprised at the vague way geocaching is often described in these small papers.
