from The Lyndon Road Gang who passed away on Oct 27th, 2006, after a long battle with cancer.

The cache was donated by local cachers Strikeforce1 and

Barge Canal" event, with the proceeds donated to Steve and his
family to help out in their time of need.

Terrain is varied, with swampy areas and, during the summer, heavy

Please take a moment to remember him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Steve, I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that you and your family are in our
thoughts and prayers.
Although you have left us, you will live on in our hearts and memories.

Found while out caching on a beautiful day in the Amherst/Lockport area with Mr. Midnight.

Kind of funny... I was prepared but Mr. Midnight was not. I had my huge, mean, waterproof, walk-up-anything caching boots on and he had sneakers. I made it directly through the swampy area in my usual caching style of going through anything in the way. He had to find another way around. Bet some ot those thorns get huge a bit later in the year. Glad they were not huge yet.

Cache was a quick easy find after Mr. Midnight caught up with me.

No Trade - TFTC - Nice Hide.

Out with Miatabug today... Lots of bushwacking on this one, but stayed nice and dry. The really odd thing was that there were *tons* of skeeters out, but none were biting - so aside from the annoying buzzing around the ears, it was pretty nice :)

The pen in the cache wasn't working, so we swapped it out with one that works (courtesy of Miatabug). I grabbed the Homer TB who has been here for a while and also took the Measure Up TB. I left an eraser for Big Mistakes.

I hope Steve is OK. TFTC!

Took a few minutes to find this one. Must have walked past it three times before seeing it. Nice tribute to Steve, hope to see you back on the trails soon.

Hmm. And I don't recognize the name of the first Navicache logger, seeing as he has no finds on the website, and posted a note, not a find. Wheelygood, is that you? Best of luck to Steve from The Lyndon Road Gang, get better soon, and do some cachin'.

Thanks for the cache. Thought maybe I might have a chance for a FTF, but judging my the number of footprints in area, I knew that was unlikely. Found cache quickly and was disappointed when I opened logbook and saw I was beaten. Didn't recognize the name of the FTF'er. Must be a newbie. Was beaten by about 30 minutes. Should consider renaming this one "On thin ice" as I fell through into knee deep water several times. Get well soon Steve.
