This is our second and drier cache hidden in Sprague Brook Park in southern Erie county. The placement of
which has been approved by the Erie County Parks Department. We are attempting to keep this a flying
theme cache. Please also try our Gnomes Lair cache within this very park!
Parking coordinates are as follows, N 42° 35.394 W 078° 38.457. We've parked you at the Viet
Nam Veterans Memorial, please take some time to visit here as it is a very nice spot. You
should have no problem finding the cache but if you do, then you can resort to the clue!!
The cache is in an oversized ammo box and is loaded with all kinds of things that fly. If the
winds are out of the N.N.W. and the surface winds are below 10 m.p.h., you may see hot air
balloons and or powered parachutes fly by at dawn or dusk. Usually up to a couple hours
after sunrise and a couple hours before sunset. If you have been sucessful with the cache at
these times and would like to try and see the balloons, go to the launch site coordinates
provided. N 42° 36.886 W 078° 39.265. At these coordinates it's even possible to get a bite to
eat while watching the balloon or balloons get ready to fly away. There is a cache camera
provided for you to take a picture or two of yourself. I will eventually put some of these on
the website. I ask that you please let me know that you did and how many you took when
you log in your find.

An awesome sunny December 29th in WNY - no way! Yes way! So team Broughton set out to land some prize caches in Sprague Brook Park.

It was an excellent hike to this cache but unfortunately the cache was not hidden at all. It was right out in the open. The wind we had the last few weeks took its toll. The cache had some water in it even - surprising seeing it is a very nice ammo box.

The camera did not work and PEOPLES...... The theme has not been followed as requested buy the owners. There was not too much flying items in it.

This cache needs maintenance and I will send an email off to the owners.

All & all it was an excellent hike to an excellent area. This cache seems like it will be top notch once fixed.

I was actually on a mission of other sorts in the park today when I found myself on a trail of unfamiliarness and yes, I will admit it, I was a tad bit lost and unable to find an easy way to where I wanted to go. Looking at my GPS didn't help much other than seeing that this cache was only about .15 from where I was. I usually don't like to tick off Mrs. Nogg by caching without her, but she was at work and the temptation was TOO GREAT! So off I went and found this pretty quickly. GREAT HIDE! It would have taken me longer, but I think I got lucky when I looked where I did.

This was the second of the day for us. After some other
business and the morning cache (Gnomes Lair ), we went
after this cache ( 4:45 pm )also. Barney was eager to try a
second cache. From the Vets Memorial, we followed the gps
onward. I was explaining to him how this game is played and
how people hide things differently as we walked. As we got
close to the cache ( .02 away ) I was watching the gps for
a bearing, when I herd "I Found It ". It wasn't quite the
Huckle -Buckle, but he was right on ( as a "Newbie " out
doing the vet.- go figure.) This cache was in good shape,
and while going thru it, I found a CBtb. I couldn't resist,
I had to "Arrest" him and take him back to the CannonBall
Cops Pen. He'll be processed and on his way soon, westward
I hope.
Thanks for the fun on this hide - glad I brought a
"Newbie" to jump for joy ;).

Since it was such a nice day today, I decided to bag my second cache of the day. So I headed for Up Up and Away right after finishing Nicely Done! further up 240. I had no problem finding the location except for a bit of signal loss in the woods leading to it. It then took me a few circles around the cache to locate it. Very cool idea! I will borrow it for one of my future caches. I signed the log book, took an army chopper and left a small flashlight w/ batteries included ;-) Thanks for this cache and the great time outdoors!

Hi Guys! Great job on this cache, took a little looking but had Ketchup with me and he actually spotted it. Took a police helicopter and left an army helicopter with display stand. Cache is in good shape. Thanx!

3rd of 7 finds today Found at 11:35 AM
1st of 4 BP & CL cache finds today and probably the easiest. What a very clever hide. A lot of effort went into this one. Even though I thought I knew where to look, it still took me a couple of minutes. Took longer to re-hide it than it did to find it. Took picture # 6 with cache camera. Signed log, took/left nothing cause I didn’t have any flying stuff with me except the local mosquito’s. Never did find the “note”.

Hey...second cache of the day and second time that Mr. & Mrs. Mom and Goo beat us to an item......the travel bug was gone :(

I had taken the young ones out to find the Gnomes Lair cache a few weeks back so today we decided the do the other one in the park. Temp wise it was not to bad but I felt as if I was getting a facial just being outside today.

This cache was fun. We figured out a short cut so the walk...after we stopped at the vet memorial...was very short...this was a first for us......Eversure sensed the presence of the box prior to arriving at destination......so it took us minus minutes to get there.....now if I could only do that with the aging process!! BTW...Eversure says..."Sweet Cache!!:"

Cache was in terrific shape and I came equipped with appropriate trades...flying theme and all.
Butterfly girl took the parachute biker (she and eversure threw him off our deck for over an hour after we got home :) , Sweety took balloon stickers and Eversure the blue bird......
We replaced these with:
*a watch...time flys
*a suction duck...ok he's not going anywhere with that suction thing but perhaps he could be suctioned to the roof of a car and feel the wind beneath his wings.....
*a super bounce super ball...bouncy flying
*a ceramic hummingbird with wings poised as if in flight....

Hope to see you at the NY geocachers club meeting next Saturday. We heard that there are a number of caches to find there!

Third and last cache of the day. Found this around 11:10pm after our scary adventure with the Gnome. The dark, nighttime woods seemed much more peaceful on this side of the park! What a great cache! You guys put a lot of time and effort into this one and it shows . Goo left a flying helicopter toy and took a different kind of helicopter toy. Mr Mom took the Elmo travel bug which we will be placing soon. We wanted to stop and check out the Vietnam memorial but after Mr Mom searched for quite some time, we never did find it. Thanks so much for a great adveturous evening!!

The third of three caches hit today. The targets were all treasures by Balloonpilot and Chickenlips'. Something about this one though was very familiar. Even so, I wasn't expecting it, and Bug Spatter was the first to make a key discovery. Therefore, she earned the honors of opening the cache. Nice theme for all things that fly. She took the balloon dish towel and left a sleeve of golf balls noting—“Some fly better than others”. Road Kill, on the other hand, left something in reference to “fly”, but certain to stop flight. Grin. Pictures taken were #21 & #20.

Wet, muddy, tired and hungry; Road Kill and Bug Splatter sought out a McDonalds and went home. As caches go Road Kill gives them an A+. Bug Splatter on the other hand is glad that Father’s Day only comes once a year.

Road Kill is grinning
