No, not the really bad Rick Astley song from 1988.

Once upon a time, there was another cache in the vicinity of this very nice hidden cemetery in the Martinsville section of North Tonawanda. There's a Freddy Kreuger buried here, and the long gone (found only 8 caches, hid only 1) cache placer claimed it was his Great-Great Uncle. I don't know if I believe that, but I'm sure we'll never know. Fred is buried near to my first leg coordinates, if you're interested in looking for his headstone. Have a look around anyways, there's some great history in St. Paul Lutheran Cemetery. Please be respectful of your surroundings. The cache is not near any graves or markers, it's located on wooded City property outside of the Cemetery. Absolutely no night caching allowed!!

It's kind of hard to pin-point an exact headstone in a cemetery (especially with my crappy old Garmin), but the coordinates at the top of the page should take you to the very nice headstone of a married couple, who passed away in the same year. That fact, and the cache name, will let you know for sure you've found the correct marker. They were also avid gardener's, although I can't assure the longevity of that clue.

The coordinates for the cache container are in the format:

N 43 03.0AB

W 078 50.1CD

* A = The number of heart shaped photographs on their headstone.
* B = Add the 1st and 4th digit of the year they died.
* C = Add the 1st and 4th digit of the year he was born.
* D = The 3rd digit of the year he was born.

You're looking for a camo taped Farberware lock-n-leak in the woods. If you don't see white tail deer when looking for the cache, you probably did something wrong.

To make CC happy, I read the log.

Alright I guess I'm just a sucker for the old Navicache site. I'm pretty certain that there will be limited viewing of this log as I am beginning to think there are about 6 people routinely visiting here that reside in the Western Hemisphere. Heck I'm not even going to bother with the spell check. So here's my log for the other 5.

We had visited this area before when Freddie's cache was active so had a pretty good idea of what to expect. After gathering the information required we waded into the adjacent woodlot sidestepping deer droppings on our way to the cache. Gps jumpiness caused us to take a circuitous route toward the cache similar to the swirl of a tolet bowl in the southern hemisphere. Eventually we were able to locate it, sign in and head back out.

Thanks for placing it.
