Crazy caching idea

Yesterday, just as I was leaving work, I had a crazy idea for a fascinating new Geocache idea. It's basically a multi-cache, except that the microcache at each node lists the coordinates of one or more adjacent nodes. Instead of following from point to point in a linear manner, the cacher has to follow the points like a maze, expecting to back-track when he reaches dead ends. A single cache may have a dozen nodes, four of which are necessary to follow the cache from its beginning to the final location.

Something like this:

(If any intrepid Geocachers interested in implementing this happen to be reading this, feel free; it's unlikely that I'd actually get around to creating a cache like this. If you're in the greater Longmont area, drop me a line and I'd love to give you a hand.)
