OTWTC...

This is mystery cache located on Cayuga Island in Jayne Park to honor SSG Aram Bass. Just recently a memorial for Staff Sargent Bass was placed in the park. Imagining what it must have been like to be away from family, and in harms way every day, I chose to make this one difficult. What Sargent Bass had to do was difficult and it cost him his life. Just be safe and know your limits.

To find the location of the final you will need 2 numbers off the memorial plaque. Take the day of the month...AB, and plug into the formula for your final coords. (hope you remember algebra!)
11-A=X
(Bx3)-6=Y
The final can be found at
N43* 04.5X4
w078* 57.3Y8

There is NO FTF prize...sorry... you'll just have to live with the fact that you were first

Oops. Sorry FFoF, I never saw this listed here. Logging almost a year later. This was a very interesting hide, and I risked my life by going much further than I had to. TNLN, TFTC.

Wow, I haven't been on this site in like forever. And as such I have lots of cross-posting of logs to do.

I had to abort this one at first, as there was a family sitting right at the memorial for awhile. So I decided to take a drive around the island and come back in a few minutes. I did that, and the family was gone but came across Andy Too. Together we worked out the final coords and headed over. After climbing around for a bit I finally spotted it and made the retrieval. Nicely done cache FFo5.
