Three point multi. First waypoint: Pill bottle sized container offers coordinates for waypoint two. Second waypoint: Altoid sized tin offers coordinates for final cache. Final destination is a medium sized container, large enough for TBs, tradables and a nice FTF package.

Sometimes people have to be tricked into coming into the city. This cache is called Falstaff's Revenge because it starts in the suburbs (Irondequoit) but takes you across city lines into Farmington Park and beyond.

The path between the first and second waypoint is an old trolly bed, similar to cache Wayward Railway Path(GC1H2TY).* From second waypoint to Ground Zero is somewhat unconventional. You need to keep to the sidewalks, so you can't just follow your GPS arrow, at least not until you are close to Ground Zero.

The hides themselves are very conventional. Although the GPS signal may bounce around on you - it certainly did for me when I was scouting GZ - you will likely find the hide if you look in the usual likely places!

Terrain is very easy 90% of the way, and round trip, the walk is a little more than two (2) kilometers (no more than 1.5 miles). I realized after I walked this a couple of times, that because it is an urban multi, it's pretty easy to navigate by vehicle as well, if the distance is a problem or time is at a premium.


Congratulations to Mack4 for his FTF! Wasn't it nice to trample virgin snow? I had to wait for new snow to cover my tracks from placing the cache before releasing. Sorry if that made the difference between Jakkteam not finding and Mack4 finding. (I sorry, I sorry, I not sorry!) Glad that the shear variety of trackables did not go unnoticed, as I went to considerable length to acquire them, especially the First Time Geocaching geocoin that I pursued specifically to include in my first ever hide. Comments and suggestions welcome, but be gentle, as this is my first effort.


* The actual cache shares something else in common with Wayward Railway. Can you guess what that is? Answer in the clue below.

I am looking for older caches so I decided to start logging my finds here too.

This was very close to home, I am glad I was able to get this one before it went missing
