The magic eye and qr codes are on the cache page so can be read prior to attempting the cache. They reveal the method of finding the Co-ordinates once you reach the stage. This enables people to attempt the cache if, like SangueG you need special equipment that is difficult to carry.
The Final is magnetic and I placed it using a long reach grab claw however the magnet is very strong and I could not retrieve it with the claw. The only way I think it can be reached is teamwork as per the attributes and sitting on someones shoulders or similar. The location is a popular riverside walk within easy site of a busy pub beer garden (I placed the cache at 4am on a Sunday) It is on the underside of a bridge.
I do not mind saying about it here as I do not think there are many Norfolk cachers on this site and they will still have to complete the trail to get the right location [:)]

I always struggle when it comes to T/D and often alter them after feed back as some that I think are very easy others struggle with and visa-versa. It has been a bit of an ambition of mine to create a 5/5 and think I may have finally done so. I think my next challenge will be to set caches that fill the full range of T/D and in doing so name them to cover the alphanumerical range as there are some letters and numbers I am going to travel miles for. Thanks for your vote

I have now submitted Losing My Religion - Digital Remaster. GC4PXGB  This is by far the hardest cache I have ever submitted. To complete the stages you need a qr reader, solve a magic eye puzzle, identify stages by photos taken at GZ and use a UV light (not all at the same time) The trail is just over a mile long. When solved the final is about 10 feet off the ground in a busy part of the city and it is not possible to climb to. Most of the terrain is pavement but there is a steep grass bank to negotiate for one stage and I feel the final warrants a 5* on it's own.

Caching Gear/ Tech Talk / Unusual ideas for multis any ideas
« on: October 18, 2013, 12:44:55 am »
I am really struggling  trying to build a wherigo so am thinking of other unusual ways of organising a multi. One idea I am playing with is UV pens and black light  . Do you think this would make it a 5* difficulty as it would need special equipment I am thinking of not supplying the UV torch. I would mention it in the log so cachers knew what they needed to bring. I have placed the cache in a place that again needs special equipment or teamwork to retrieve and replace so am thinking this could be a 5/5. any thoughts or other unusual ideas?

Also does anyone know if co-ords writen with UV pen count as a physical or non physical waypoint?

This will be the last multi in my Losing My Religion series which visits the sites of lost Churches in Norwich. The others include a photo trail, a question and answer trail where you have to identify which question to answer at whch way point and 2 simple question and answer trail.

Caching Gear/ Tech Talk / Re: Problems seeing photos on cache page

Seems like GC hamsters may have somehow now put this right for me as the HTML codes have been changed.

Please let me know if there are still any problems.

Many thanks for all the help and advice

Caching Gear/ Tech Talk / Problems seeing photos on cache page
« on: October 08, 2013, 02:19:03 pm »
I have just had my GC4PQZE Multi-cache Losing My Religion - Cover Versions which is a photo trail where finders have to go 8 co-ordinates and see which photo was taken from that location. if they are correct this will lead to the location of the final and log book.

My problem is I and some other cachers can see the required pictures when viewing the cache page but some cachers have reported that they are unable to see the photos and thus can not complete the cache.

I guess the reviewer could see them in order to publish the cache. I wrote the page using HTML codes and the photos are published on my flicker page and I down loaded them to the cache page gallery. The reviewer has since removed the logs that I downloaded them with and they are no longer displayed in the gallery.

Any ideas what is going wrong and more importantly how do I fix it.

PLEASE HELP if you can.

If you look at the page please let me know if you can see the pictures

I have posted requests for help on 2 other geocaching forums and until I can get this sorted properly the photos with their numbers can be viewed at][url=http://http://www.flickr.com/photos/stickbouncer/sets/72157636255926096/]

 I have received this helpfull answer from Mattishall Marauders on EACachers forum. "Have just had a quick look and everything seems fine using Firefox and Chrome. However, when I tried using Internet Explorer, the pictures were not there. So it may be a case of trying a different browser.
Hope this helps."

Thanks
