Lupin has hidden his treasure in the pine forest. Before you can find it you must discover the plaque honoring
the land ownwers who so graciously planted the forest 65 years ago.
Their birth years will lead you to the cache. (Easy walking on newly acquired state land.)

Welcome to Burger Park, named for Mr Ed M Burger and his wife Jean - two of the nicest people I have ever met.
Note: All the coordinates are in the form of ddd mm.mmm .

You can park your car at 43N 18.560' 77W 43.980'. The road in has been paved so you can drive, ride a bicycle or walk in with no trouble.

First, find the plaque on the ground two feet south of the small tree located near the posted coordinate.
(Updated August 25, 2014): Look for the smaller of the two trees - It is a Red Maple.
Divide Mrs Jean Burger's birth year by 100 and SUBTRACT it from the minutes portion of 43N 37.953'.
Divide Mrs Jean Burger's death year by 100 and ADD it to the minutes portion of 77W 23.833'.
These two numbers will lead you to the cache. It is a standard ammo box under a pile of branches among the pine trees.
I moved the cache to a more secure location to deter muggles.
Walk around the woods rather than bushwhack through them and approach the cache from the North.

The cache is a standard ammo box under a pile of branches among the pine trees.

Info - My family had the golden opportunity of living in Japan for 9 years. We came from this
road, saw the big city, and returned here bringing a little Japanese culture with us.
Lupin III is a famous Japanese cartoon character that shows up in movies, magazines, TV shows, coffee mugs, etc. He is supposedly a master thief, but is actually a good guy, like Robin Hood, and usually ends up giving the "family
jewels" away rather than keeping them for himself.
Inside the box are: Key chains from around Japan, New Year charm, comb, Japanese foot warmers, handkerchief, and other items for all ages. Enjoy.

Owner Comment - Lupin, August 25, 2014.
One of the two memorial plaques is missing so I updated the puzzle to use only one. (I'm guessing the plaque was hit by one of the huge mowers used to keep the grass in check.)
I also made a path so it is a little easier to get to the cache so no bush whacking is required. Walk around the woods and approach the cache from the North.

I visited the cache today and restocked it with Japanese items: New Year Soap Set, New Year Towel, Child's chopsticks, Oshibori(disposable hand towels), Good Luck charm.
The disposable camera was finished so I took it and will replace it soon.

Happy New Year!

We picked a very rainy day for this hunt, but it was worth it. The trails really wind around and without the parking coordinants it may take awhile to find your car again. It was raining so hard that the inside of the ammo box may be damp from when we had it open. I'm familiar with the area so we found the parking spot with no trouble, but I think it could be difficult for others to find.We took a pinball game and left a box of seashells. Thanks for providing a fun afternoon.

Our 2nd of the day, and 6th of the weekend. This is a nice out of-the-way park, once we got here. We had trouble finding it though (the park), we were on the wrong side of the bay.
We took miniture cards, and Mertle the Sea Turtle TB, and left a toy baseball game, a game CD, and Dad's Deere TB.
Nice cache

Took nothing, left nothing. The cache is very full.

Thanks for the hide.

2 for 2 today! This is actually a three part cache. Had the most trouble finding the parking lot! Got a nice view of Braddock Bay while driving around in circles! Left the Tip E. Canoe travel bug, since he wants to get near water. Thanks for the chance to explore a park we had never heard of before.

Yeah! We went out for the first time ever this morning. (Just got the darned thing yesterday and couldn't wait to try it--all because of the recent article in the newspaper about Geocaching.)
Had a great time, although I hope I didn't get poison ivy! Always wanted to walk down there and never did. It was pretty muddy and the grass is pretty tall, but definitely worth it. Thank you for an excellent time!
John actually found it and he is picture number 10 on the camera. We wrote in the log book and it was fun to look at the Japanese things. Didn't exchange anything, we were too excited just to find it. We are looking forward to finding many more!

This is the cache thats closest to my house (for now anyway!) and as such I have wanted to go it for a long time. I started caching in January and everytime I ever went to the park it was chained up and closed so I waited and waited. I must say however the wait was worth it. We headed out today to try to do a couple of the more local caches, and decided to give this one another shot. The park was open so we drove in. We parked in the little parking lot and nearly directly in front of us was the largest pair of pheasants I have seen, and really the only pair I have ever seen (never seen the hen before.) We took a few pictures, but they didnt turn out so well. We watched them til they disappeared into the brush. We got out of the car and climbed the bird view platform, and gazed out over the water. Saw swans, swifts, red winged blackbirds, and many other delightful creatures. There were swifts EVERYWHERE!! I couldnt get over how many there were! There were workers out cleaning up damage from the storm, but they paid us no mind. The GPS was dead on, took us right to the first waypoint, then straight on to the second, it never missed a beat, so that was nice as well. Found the cache in good shape, with little trouble, though if you take a harder route in then needed (we did) your feet may end up a bit muddy. Took the soap and left a knife. Looked over all the items in the cache very interesting. Thanks for a very unique cache, and in a great little park.

What a busy day this cache had today.

I took the family out for the first cache of the spring year (and glad I did)

This turned out to be quite fun just watching my daughter Morgan zipping back and forth looking for the clues and waypoints.

Beautiful area I didn't know had an entry point.

As a kid I used to boat down the waterway past here but never thought twice about the park or even if it was one.

The cache was in great shape and I think we were number 12 on the camera.

When you get the film developed let me know and I will add the shots to the site.

The pix I am including with this log report are safe to look at. One is of Morgan signing the log book but I made her take the cache and book well away from the cache area as to not give away the location.

Thanks for the great fun and please keep up the good cache ideas.

BTW...watch for Ivy starting to grow in the area.

I am hooked!!!!

This was my first find ever. I have been sitting here reading this website for weeks waiting for my new gps to get delivered. I first found out about Geocaching on the radio with Brother Weaze here in Rochester when a listener mentioned the Navicache website. Once I visited it and did some reading I knew I had to give it a try.

I am just glad my gps had a calculator built into it as well!

Great fun and well worth the trip. I am looking forward to more in the future.

First of the season! But then geocaching has no seasons, it's just more fun when you don't have to bring a snow shovel. We introduced my 8 year old nephew and 2 year old niece to geocaching today and after failing to find our first one, this one was perfect for them to get their first "find". I actually had planned to hide a cache nearby, but Lupin beat me to it. Cache survived the winter well,is dry, in good shape and chock full of treasure. Left a light stick and took a keychain. Thanks for a great cache for kids!

This was our first cache! It was a bit nippy out there, but a nice day to be out, just the same. Didn't see anyone else except a fox on the way back to the car. Took the hard route through bushes, etc. We were pleased to find the cache in a reasonable amount of time, being our first experience and all. Couldn't find the plaque, however. Good thing we decoded your clue ahead of time. Took the package of Japanese tissues, and left a credit card-sized flashlight with Mary Cassatt's "The Bath" imprinted. "The Bath" depicts a Japanese women bathing a baby, circa 1800's. Thanks for the treasure hunt, and for the heads-up on geocaching.

This turned out to be extra special since I met "Lupin Jr." out checking on the cache. Turns out we're both ham ops (as is Lupin himself). Found the first clue a bit off my coords, but then, there weren't that many places to look. Nice walk into the woods, and the cache was right on the calculated coords. Took a Japanese hand warmer, and left a skill puzzle. Hope I don't have a probelm operating the warmer, or I'll have to have Lupin translate for me. :) Also snagged the Keychain TB. It's growing by leaps and bounds. I'll add one of my own, and get it on its way. Thanks for the adventure in an out of the way park.

Found it at 1:10 PM. Left Travel Bug Kachin Key Chain #209382. This is a nice walk on a winter day. Nice hiding spot. Thanks for the adventure.

Catching up on some older logs: I found this one in the cold and snow, but after I had read the description I knew I had to go! I look forward to my next trip to Japan but I doubt I'll run out of tissue packets before then - I think they took up 85% of my suitcase coming home last time! The rest was goodies from our sumo outing at the Kokugikan. :)
Took a soap and a keychain, left a Hong Kong cinema mousepad, Hindi soundtrack CD, and a pamphlet from the Ghibli museum in Mitaka. The Ghibli museum was an awesome place! Thanks for a hide that brings back a lot of great memories just reading about it. I hope to be the first one to log both Lupin's Treasure I and II!
