That's what Mrs. Urkel said to me; "get that thing out of the
house". Of course that was a good 6 months before I actually did
just that. This is a rather large, obnoxious cache container I've
had in the basement for over two years. It was once filled with
yummy cheese and sausage from Wisconsin. This cache is also
slightly dedicated to the legendary Hiking Cockroachess, a noted
Avian enthusiast.

So you'll find yourself in Nature View Park in Amherst of
course. You have two parking options, the Christine Drive dead-end
off of Sweet Home Road, and the Phillip Drive dead-end off of North
French Road.

Christine Drive would be a .9 mile round trip, and allow easy
access (by Nature View Park standards) to the semi-historic and
rarely visited Braden's Skateboard Rocks, without having to worry about the
"Nature View Canal". Cross it at the obvious spot near parking.

Phillip Drive would be a .8 mile round trip, and allow easy
access to my own NV Park#5 AKA These pretzels are making me thirsty. I'd
recommend getting that on the way out, if you're interested. Look
carefully for trails leading relatively close to both legs. You can
get Braden's from Phillip Drive no problem (without worrying about
the canal), but it will be an almost 2 mile round trip.

Unless you somehow find a way to the cache from Campbell Bvld. a
wide, deep ditch is inevitable. See the encrypted hint for the easy
(again by Nature View Park standards) way to the cache, if you feel
so inclined. The cache is designed to be "removed".

So being a glutton for punishment today, and having at least another half-pint or so of blood left in our veins, Miatabug and I said "What the heck! Let's go back to Nature View and give the mosquitoes on *this* side of the park some fresh people to feast upon...". So we did :)

I can understand why Mrs. Urkel would want this container out the basement... I would too :) But it is definitely perfectly suited for a cache. Despite learning what it feels like to be consumed while still alive, we still had a lot of fun looking for the cache. We saw a ton of really cool birds and some plants we've never seen before.

Took nothing, left California coin and a volunteer coin

Thanks again for the fun!

Surprise, I forgot to log this one over here. Haven't logged onto this site in months. I think by the time I found this, my hamstring was really starting to hurt, but we pressed on through the mud and snow. Future finders be sure to check out the wonderful generic non-copyrighted geocaching symbol on the side of the cache. :) Thanks Urk.
