This cache is black altoids container with only a logbook. Bring your own writing utensil. Ignore the title in the cache logbook.. it was going to be placed somewhere else until I got this idea.

I bet many of you don't know about the herbal medicine man that used to reside behind the Kmart of Depew.

Remenants of his home can still be seen, although it now has a very dilipated and overgrown look. An african village with a few grass huts used to be visible, but now it is long gone.

He lived to be at least 100 years of age, HB Senior once gave him a ride home from the grocery store during one of his last years.

Another interesting thing the medicine man did was sell pencils in the front of the Kmart and after buying a pencil he would give you an newspaper article about himself and also a picture of himself with President Ronald Reagan.

This, by far, was my favorite of the three HB caches we found tonight. I'd love to re-enact my method of finding this one (by accident actually...haha), but I'd hate to spoil the fun of getting this cache for the NTF.

I have to say, it's one of those hides that you just find yourself saying, well...I just gotta do it. Hahahaha. So, after finding the cache, I signed the log, posed for a picture that I hope NEVER sees the light of day (yes Huck, that means you! ), and under the direction of the cache owner, replaced the cache MUCH MUCH better than how I had found it. You see that person on the watchlist...yeah, that's me. Hahahahaha!

Great fun with this one Huck - thanks for the laughs - and the cache-hiding directive!
