Should use some caution during hunting season. Nice short hike with a few slight hills and open woods. Children should be watched as you approach the site area due to sheer cliff. There are no fences. Don't miss the sights as you follow the edge. As you near a beautiful point over the ravine at N 42 39.675 W 077 50.842, there is a hive of honey bees working on their honey comb. If disturbed, I am sure they will be very angry. Children beware!! This can be an easy cache if approached from the right direction, but very difficult if not.

KB - you really know how to hide 'em! Or perhaps more appropriately, where to hide 'em! After originally planning to tackle Osage #7, there was a change in plans as Chicky, myself and our geo-buds the Noggs decided to head over to Sonyea State Forest and check out a classic KB cache in Brought Back to Life.

I don't know if I've ever outright proclaimed this, but typically I find myself being a "path" kind of guy. I don't usually get all bushwhacky as I figure “If there is a path, it probably there so it can take me to something I'm supposed to see.” Haha. But this cache, sans the path, took us on a spectacular and refreshing walk around old and luscious woods. Upon parking our cars, we got doused with a brief stint of rain, but that only helped enhance the majestic-ness of the woods. This was absolutely beautiful Bruce.

We had a great hike in, stopping every so often so I could ask Mr. Nogg to identify a rare pile of "Deer Fungus" I found, as well as a few cool looking spiders and the origin of the Christmas Fern.

After arriving to our zero point, we found the cache in short order and dove in to see what kind of goodies awaited us. One of the reasons this cache really intrigued me (outside of being a KB cache in an amazing area), was that it had not been found since May. I always enjoy finding "lonesome caches" that go months and months without a visitor. Typically I like the challenge, and usually I am introduced to untamed areas that very few people get to see. Such was the case with this great cache! Ironically though, upon reading the log book we learned that someone actually had found the cache on 9-17-06 but never logged in here. Apparently it was their first find (we have never heard of them, but commend their choice in caches! )

We snapped a few photos of the immediate cache area, and headed over to the overlook to get the “all you can view” KB special. We were amazed at what we found – how awesome is this spot!?! Our little group of geocachers spent a considerable amount of time taking photos, enjoying the colorful fall foliage and generally just soaking in this mesmerizing place. Mr. Nogg and I also watched the girls climb all over the area, and have us convinced they must be part goat or something. Haha. Of course Mr. Nogg makes me laugh because the only overlooks he’ll entertain are the ones that are provided near trees he can anchor to…hehe. Ahhh, always a fun time caching in gorgeous places with great friends.

Another amazing spot Bruce – this may be one of your most early hides, but it is certainly taken it’s place as one of my favorites. Thanks for a great walk on a perfect autumn day!

Scottishgal610 and I found this one together after a long hike through the woods. It was such a beautiful place in the woods were we recovered the cache. We rested awhile at the cache site to take in our surroundings before making the long hike back out to my truck. I took the Honey soap and left a really nice aqua colored antique bottle. We both signed the log. The camera needs replacing as it is used up. - Paleoman52

Nice area, didn't spend to much time at the cache. Was here with CL & BP. Took the glue stick and left a water squirt pistol. Thanx for the hide.

Nice walk on a warm winter day. Took gloves, left cards. Had to pry cache from its hiding spot (a little frozen).

1st of 3 Finds Today 2 Nov 03 Found at 1:30 PM
Got Donna out caching today so she could get 100 finds this year before it gets cold; this was #98 for her. It was raining a little, but at least it was warm and not snowing. Was familiar with the area so thought I knew the best place from which to start. It was a nice level walk through the woods on an old logging road about ½ way to the cache and then some easy bushwhacking the rest of the way. She walked straight to it with the excellent coordinates provided. Took the small diagonal cutters and left some AA Energizer batteries. Took picture # 16 of ourselves on the cache camera. Thanks Killerb for the nice hide.

WooHoo! Another FTF for me!
Thought sure I would miss out on this one to CountryBoy Gary or Harv...maybe even Rocky...

I originally went to do the Sullivan & Clinton Trail, but got stumped on it. Then it started pouring rain just as I was leaving.
I had planned on Brought Back To Life as a backup, and decided to at least see how close I could drive to it. I was already familiar with the area from doing Shakers and Sonyea State Forest caches...

I found what seemed to be a trailhead leading toward the cache, so I parked, and headed off...I ended up losing the trail, so just beelined to the cache.

At first, my GPS started flaking out on me when I got to within about 60ft of the cache, but then it seemed to settle down and led me right to the cache. Even in the middle of a thunderstorm and heavy tree cover, my Merigreen read 1ft when I set it on top of the cache container, still inside its hiding spot!... :)

I cant wait to go back to this cache when the leaves have all changed color, or in the winter, when the leaves are gone, and the view of the Keshequa gorge will be wide-open and even more inspiring!

Thanx for a GREAT hide, Killerb!
Excellent hide!... Cracker gives this one a solid thumbs up!
