This cache(50 mm ammo box) is wedged into a spot not too far off of the FLT.So most of the way it is pretty easy going. The last bit of it I would not recommend for kids under 12. Don't expect that your GPS will get you too close, as the cover is kind of thick. So this might make it a bit tough. This cache could be a 5 at the right part of the season. Remember that deer season starts on Oct.15th. I have seen bow and arrow tree stands in the area. So be very careful in your approach to the site area. Also you could run into an irate hunter due to the fact that you are tramping around in his favorite spot and I know that they become very possessive of something that doesn't even belong to them. Do show a little compassion if this happens. You should only use the clues if necessary.

This was a really nice walk but beware for the first half of the walk there was a lot of poison ivy growing along the path. If you keep on the path, you shouldn't make contact with this itchy plant. Nice hide, it took me a few minutes to find the cache. Left a Deer antler and took a ruler. - Paleoman52

Hey KB! Well, ever since I did Bridges, I keep telling Chicky that the next time I get up in the Letchworth area I HAVE to try another of your caches. So this morning when I was planning our caching outing we were going to head toward Perry/Warsaw....but I figured since we were going to be "in the area" (and for all intensive purposes "in the area" is defined as anything within a 200 mile radius ), I wanted....nay, NEEDED to do a KillerB cache!
Since we aren't familiar at all with this area, we decided to drive up the east side of Letchworth, hoping that if we hugged the edge of the park the FLT would eventually present itself. Thankfully those trailheads are yellow! Haha, otherwise we'd be halfway to Ottawa by now...

The journey to the cache was great. It was a perfect day for a walk in the park...and we had the entire place to ourselves (another one of the things I love about this cache). It was just a really fun experience.

When we arrived at the cache site I was a little distracted by how close I was to the gorge! Amazing! Great spot KB! Soon after realizing I was making Chicky do all the work, I focused and began the search. We spent a little while looking for the cache, but soon while prodding I heard that wonderful "THUNK" of a hollow ammo can and got a big ole' smile across my face. --> Something like that...haha.

So for the next half hour or so Chicky and I just sat with the cache reading the logs and taking in the wonderful scenery. What can I say, it was perfect.

We picked up the Maryland GC and were really happy to be able to find a coin in the wild...that's always a treat. We might hold on to it as there is a CITO event coming up in the park in two weeks or so...we'd like to personally hand it off to a cacher to thank them for all the work...but we'll see.

Which reminds me, if we can call dibs on where we want to CITO in the park, I'm TOTALLY going to call this FLT...partly because the first few hundred feet need a lil' CITO, but mostly because I love this spot so any reason to get back to it is a good one.

Thanks again KB for another caching adventure! Hope to cache you on the trails sometime!

Found 28 Dec 03 at 10:55 AM
Daughter Melissa (Miniharv) drove up from Virginia on the 26th with her new GPS to do some caching with dad. She got here in the early afternoon so thought we would have some time to find this one before dark. Knew it was going to be hard and thought 2 looking would be better than one. Well we spent more than an hour looking without any luck before we had to leave, as it was getting dark. The next day, the 27th we went north and found 8 caches together, a pretty good day. She then had to leave. Today I went back determined to find it even if it took all day, which I knew it might. I had all the hints and clues, just a matter of putting them all together. I had good sats. , the same as 2 days ago and the GPS took me straight back to the same spot. After about hour I finally found it this time, right where I had looked at least 6 times before!!! The coords seem to be excellent for this difficult location. The GPS showing around 10 feet while at the cache, the same for both days. This cache is definitely well hid. After signing the log I re-hid it exactly as I found it. I think it will survive the winter just fine. On the way out I went and checked out the view of the gorge, which is just incredible. Thanks Killerb for a real tough hide and challenge.
