Well, truth be told we've been slacking on this cache for quite some time now - mostly because we didn't have the page to derive HBs you never know what youre going to get math from. So this morning, like a good little geocacher, I printed up the cache page on this one so that I'd have all the information I'd need in order to complete this fun multi.
Unfortunately for me - my printer cut off the far right hand side of the cache page - leaving me to guess about at least 1 of the coords on the page! Did I ever tell you I was bad a math too? Haha.

Regardless of my many geo-handicaps...Chicky, Gregg the TB and I decided to take a stab at this cache in the hopes of completing another fun HB multi. Normally when we are up in the area on geo-duty we stop by and pick good ole' HB (or suffer his mighty uber-esque-wrath). But today, he was probably in school (or at least should have been! ), so we were on our own to play in the W.S. area.

After enjoying each of the cache legs, we made our way to the final area only to realize our math was conflicting with the cache description. So after a math recheck and a quick stop to see if we were going crazy, we realized that we were indeed crazy (in a confirming headshaking kind of way). Try as we might we kept coming up with the same info. So after examining our numbers we made an educated guess and headed out. I have always loved this park, and it was upsetting to see it in such disarray (good thing SF1 has a CITO planned here in a couple weeks - SHAMELESS GEO-PLUG!!! Go Sal Go!!! ).

Upon arrival at the "what we think" coords, our little group spread out, and within 15 minutes or so the cache was in hand! Great spot HB - these always make for memorable caching adventures. Even though the weather wasn't too pleasant, this was still a great start to a very fun caching day! Thanks brutha!

As Paul Harvey says "Here's the rest of the story" After logging the DNF earlier I reported the results of my algebra to HuckleBuckle and asked him to determine if I have made a math error as I don't really believe he wants me to go where the coords are taking me and there is certainly room for error deciphering 5 clues to come up with the final coords. After receiving his reassurance that I can still do basic math I decided to take another run after this one. I did enjoy the history lesson although I have visited many of these sites living nearby in Lancaster. I did do one thing different this time though and that was taking one eyed Woodie with me. Woodie just got out of the hospital after taking a paint ball in the eye over the weekend and is now officially wearing the pirate's patch that we often leave behind at caches we have found. Anyway back to the story, We head back over to Burchfield and find it loaded with muggles. Fortunatley they thinned out when we reached our zero. I tried shooting azimuths and taking measurements in an atempt to narrow down the search as I still didn't believe in our zero. Woodie walked off somewhere and as I prepared for the final assault. As I started counting paces to my next search quadrant Old one eye Woodie calls over and queeries "Why are you going that way the cache is over here and then held it up form me to see. Anyway I get the last laugh as Woodie hasn't saved enough dough to become a premium member he is unable to log this as A Woodies Roundup FTF. Score one for Cayuga Crew but I couldn't have done it without him.
By the way the place where he found it was 85 feet from my zero a bearing of 026 degrees true. See it pays to read to the end of the story.

Thanks to HuckleBuckle for setting this one up. It really is a nice tour of Northwestern West Seneca and all clues can be gathered in about 30 minutes by car.
