Good Afternoon,
 I am writing to ask everyone take a look at their multi and puzzle 
caches and  to use the "Additional Waypoints" feature to add the 
coordinates for all the stages of the  caches into the waypoint 
database.  It took several years of asking and waiting but  since 
January 2006  it's finally been possible to record Additional Waypoints 
onto  your cache pages. Cache reviewers are beginning to require all 
multicaches and puzzle caches to have their coordinates posted as hidden 
waypoints using this new feature. The reviewers have features available 
to work with the additional waypoints, making the processing of 
reviewing your cache far more efficient.    

 The final cache location and any other non-public information can be 
kept "hidden" so that only you as the owner, and site admins/volunteers, 
can view that information.  Using the new feature helps you because you 
can go back and refer to your cache page if you need to check on your 
cache, and it helps the cache reviewer because it speeds the process of 
checking these waypoints against any existing or future cache 
placements, to make sure that caches are not too close to each other.

If anyone has not looked at this feature, it is pretty neat. Parking 
coords, neat things along the cache route or just about anything can 
also be added.  When a cacher downloads the cache waypoints, they will 
also get the additional coords into the gps also. Very neat.

I know many of us have already added additional waypoints to their 
caches. Thanks a million. I have been adding many more as I go along but 
I still have 5 or 600 more to go.  So, please take a look  and do what 
you can. 

Many thanks,

Glenn, your friendly  Geocaching.com admin.
