Figured out at least two ways to compute the cache location,
graphically by construction using a map and dividers, and
mathematically using the distance formula and a bit of elementary
calculus. Which way worked for you?

Mark,
I used ExpertGPS software and created a data file with the three
referenced caches and a new waypoint. I set the new waypoint as active
and it lists the distance to the other three points. I just moved the
new waypoint around until the other distances matched.

You could do like I did for 'You can't get there from
here'. Just wander around in the forest and happen to
find it. :-)

• Come now Tony, surely it would be much more effective to simply chose one of the given waypoints and walk around it at the given distance until you found it.

Using MapSource, I picked 3-4 waypoints to get the distance from the
one for the triangulation cache and then plugged in the distance in
the proximity field for those 3-4 waypoints. Then the software draws
circles around the waypoints with the distance as the radius - where
the circles intersected is where the triangulation cache was. I used
practically no math and no effort!

• I ve posted a new cache that should appear tonite. It s a new twist for Austin caches. This one moves. Whoever finds it has to take it and place it somewhere

I've posted a new cache that should appear tonite.
It's a new twist for Austin caches. This one moves.
Whoever finds it has to take it and place it somewhere
else and post the new coordinates. It has a camo job
that should help it fit in almost anywhere and is
small enough to go unnoticed. Unless you like
frustration I suggest peeking at the spoiler before
going after it.

EVIL, YES. Truthful? YES. We have both been slacking off and I'm
going to have to bug him to get back in there, if only for the stress
relief factor.

Keep bugging him, Trey! ;-)
