This is another cache in the Faded Markers Series. This series will mainly focus on older, near forgotten burial plots of pioneers in the Niagara Region and Western New York. The goal of this series is not necessarily the length of the walk nor the difficulty of the find, but rather a simple reverence for those who came before us to shape our area.

Well, I'm going to have admit that it certainly does pay to "Git Buff". Haha. After an interesting conversation on the newly formed Buffalo Geocaching forum, I was inspired to take a perfect Saturday morning drive north towards Alabama, NY. Chicky told me if would be appropriate to sing a few tunes from the band Alabama, but frankly I was never much on country music. I was however prepared to sing a few lines from "Sweet Home Alabama" should any of the locals take a suspicious distrust to our down home legitimacy.

Believe it (or not i guess...haha), from my front door to the cache was about a straight of a shot as I've ever had to a cache. It was smooth sailings all the way, and with the sun on our faces and the wind whipping through our hair it was like some kind of movie moment where the protagonist rides off into the sunset. How's that for setting mood? Haha.

Anyway, after my aforementioned Hollywood moment, Chicky and I arrived at the cache site and after a few minutes of poking around Chicky discovered the cache. Surprisingly enough we see that it is still only listed on Navicache. Those folks at Groundspeak much be sleeping off a pancake breakfast (or pre-gaming chicken wings...either or). As we signed in we realized how windy it was in this little spot, and a couple of times it gusted so hard I half expected the trees were going to fall over on top of me. Thankfully no such incidents like that occurred, and as we wandered around a bit we secretly hoped GOF would show up inspired by his new found adoration for Navicache so we could give him the three dozen chocolate chip cookies Chicky cooked up for him. Oh well, I'll just have to suck it up and nibble on them all by myself.

Either way, thank you for a very nice cache in a unique spot that I'm sure most folks drive right by without checking out!
