This cache starts out on an old railroad bed who's parking coordinates are as follows. N42°33.350 W077°39.648. Be sure to enter off Sahrles road and not from any other point. This hunt will take you on a very nice adventure while you gather clues for the final find. Enjoy the walk as you try to imagine what it was like when the trains ran on the side of this hill. Watch for wildlife, as we have seen deer on the railbed every time we have walked on it. Please don't reveal the surprise for future cachers when you log your find.

A wonderful hunt with some great clues, but unfortunatly after not finding the cache itself we found it has been archived. Dansville, for what ever reason has posted the property and the person creating the cache had to remove it.

It's a shame, this could be a wonderful place for hiking trails, mountain biking etc.

Found part 1 but very difficult to read. Didn't find part 2 but think we know where it should have been. Our coords did not take us to this spot, we probably misinterpreted the info at 1. However, we found the cache without final coords based on our assumptions of where it might be. Took nothing, left nothing.

Wow, the Jacobs sure do know how to jest... the cache is aptly named. Had a lot of fun, and a great hike. My granddaughter, "Lima Bean" gets credit for finding the cache, although she let me help with the clues. Swapped items and signed the log book. Thanks for the adventure.

Very well done. We enjoyed your cache very much. Although I thought I had things figured out I will have to admit that I was surprised at the end. Thank you for the creative hide. I did notice certain previous cachers took great pride in having beaten me to this one. As well they should, having done the same to them more times than I can count. Given the age of this cacher I thought it would be nice to give the old fella a chance this one time.

Okay, so we were the 3rd to find this one behind Road Kill and Balloonpilot, Chicken Lips & WW Gobstopper. But I think there was some “insider trading” going on about when this one was going to be hid and posted. Found the cache at 10:00 AM. As a kid I had my 1st train ride on the Phoebe Snow along this railroad bed. Donna had her hand right on one of the clues before she spotted it. And then she also spotted the cache before me. For your first hide you sure created a good one. Signed the log and Donna took the Altoids and left a folding drink cup holder. Thanks for the nice early morning hike and surprise.

Wow...What a great adventure indeed! We really enjoyed the beautiful hike. I'm sorry to say that we really wanted to be the first to find this cache but were beat out by the master!! Oh well, better luck next time!! We took a pin on compass and left a smiley baseball and a train whistle. We're not sure about this insider trading thing. Thanks for a great cache and a job very well done..
