This cache is a black ammo-can, recycled from my old "Over The River, And Through The Woods..." cache.

Gotta love geo-recycling!

I'd been looking for a sort-of difficult terrain area to hide a cache in for a while, and believe to have found it.

Located behind a local West Seneca historical site, you'll have to do a little research on W.S. history to get some of the coordinates.

N 42 51. EFG

W 078 41. HIJ
E = The last digit of the year West Seneca was incorporated as a town, plus 2.

F = The last digit of the year the first railroad was routed through West Seneca, minus 3.

G = The last digit of the year Nelson Reed served as Town Supervisor.

H = The second last digit of the year W.S. authorized the creation of a town flag, plus 3.

I = The last digit of the year the Leydecker covered bridge was constructed, minus 1.

J = The number of letters in the current W.S. Supervisor's last name, minus 2.
Park off of Seneca Creek Road to access the cache site. I don't recommend bringing young ones to this cache, there is rebar and tricky obstacles on the way to the site, which is about a 30 foot bushwhack from a clearing.

As always have fun and happy caching!

We actually wanted to try this one LAST weekend, only to realize after we got into West Seneca that we had to do the calculations before we headed out, and not while in the field.
Hooray for my lack of literacy and geo-preparation!!!

Oh well. Today we decided to try this cache with the "correct" coords, only to realize that I once again had no idea what was going on. So after some coord adjustments (think of it like Plinko and wherever the Plinko Chips land - I go ). So after a few rounds of back and forth Chicky and I decided to head over to Sitting Bull to test our luck there. Following that adventure we decided to take one final stab at this one and what do you know - SUCCESS!

Of course now we actually had to find the cache. Haha. So for a while I was crawling all over the place trying to locate it. Leave it to Chicky to finally get tired of waiting for me, walk up to the hide area and find it in the first place she looked. Nice!

Thanks HB for another fun adventure, as well as some background on this dandy lil' town you be chillin' at!

Wow I haven't logged on here in a long time. After dropping off the cache owner following a long day of Canadian caching, I thought I'd make a quick find here. Took longer to get to the cache with all the debris around than it did to find it. TFTC HB.

Found pretty quickly once on site. Answers were no problem (figured it out a few weeks prior). Yes, that's some decent terrain! Nice historical sort of location too, ties in with the cache well. Left a processor puller outer, took a compass keychain TFTC.
