The Cache container is a retired 50 cal. ammo can, black with white lettering. The cache is located along Naples Creek near the village of Naples. Trail to the cache is flat & with few obstructions.Cache contents include the usual few trinkets for the kids to enjoy & a few things for adults too.Also in the cache is the traveller "chocolate", which I pulled earlier in the day from the "Blair Witch" cache. Take your snapshot with the camera & sign the log book. There's some pecker bushes near the cache but if you're patient about the time you leave the path, you should come away with all of the blood you went in with.I had locks on 5 sats. on each of the III Plus,the MAP76 & the Vista when at the cache so reception on any GPS should not be a problem. No bugs where in the area when I placed the cache. I'll enclose a few pics in case you need a little help, but it should be a piece of cake without them.Have fun. --Gimpy--

We spent at least 1/2 hour circling wider and wider the way point. Could not locate the container. There has been a lot of trail work and work along the creek in this area. Looks like new boulders are in place to hold back the spring waters. Don't know if this is new since the cache was placed. Didn't have the picture and will go back with it to see if we can find that tree.

For my 2nd cache find I chose one of yours Gimpy for all the help you provided in getting me started. One of Rocky's had to be 1st. Unfortunately we couldn't find it! Nice cold windy snowy day. Took Donna on her 1st hunt. Nice easy walk in. Found the spot, I think, but not the cache. Spent an hour looking in all the likely places in an ever widening circle, but no luck. Went out and back in a couple of times. GPS always brought me back to the same spot. Will try again.

The geezers, Tom from Nunda and Mike from Irondequoit, found this on Wednesday, 9/26.
Had a little problem in that my GPS said the coordinates were actually on the trail about 40 feet away.
But we did get to it by searching around for a likely hiding spot.
Took nothing except our pictures and left nothing. This was the second cache we found this day. Second one ever for that matter.
It was fun and the location was great.

WOW!! This was our first First... It was a great feeling being the first people to the cache, and it was a
great way to start our caching day. Chickenlips spotted the cache rather quickly once we left the path.
We took the compass and left a manacure set and whoopee cushion. We did take a picture with the
camera provided. We both thank you for a great walk in the woods.
